Patio drinks

I met a friend here for drinks out on the patio/sidewalk. It was a perfect night to be outdoors, and there isn't a lot of traffic on the street out front so their "patio" isn't as distracting as perhaps some of the restaurants on Nicollet Mall downtown Minneapolis. I feel like the West End is a bit... read more

Great food, both American and sushi. Service is very friendly and fast. Try the Mexican Roll--absolutely fabulous. Good for business discussions, family fun, and groups.

I took a look at some of the earlier reviews before beginning to write this. I acknowledge that every establishment can have its ups & downs. But I can't imagine Crave being anything less than excellent. As an out-of-town visitor, I had eaten here several years ago. I did not review it at the time and don't recall what I... More

I was traveling to Minneapolis for business and was going out for a run in the West End area. Before I started, I popped into CRAVE and asked if I could order dinner for pick-up when I returned from my run. The front staff was so helpful and perfectly timed my order. I had the chicken chopped salad and a... More

Four of us had dinner here and all rated our food as just "ok." The location and ambiance are terrific, just wish the food was a better experience.

You can cover a lot of mistakes with a decent Béarnaise sauce, but unfortunately there was not enough on the plate to overlook the fact that the steak medallions arrived at several temperatures, none of which was medium. The fries were over-salted, the sangria and even the ketchup were over-sweet. Full marks only for the asparagus.

Our adult children always talk about dining and hanging out at Crave on the West End ~ so when it was a girls day out our daughter took me there for dinner and it was awesome, incredible experience for this old chic from the farm. I see why people enjoy this place, service, food and drinks are fantastic.

This place combines Americana with sushi. The food is good but nothing spectacular. Everyone's doing sushi and "American" these days and theirs is average. The best part about this place was the outdoor seating and the good location in West End. What I did like was the unusual cocktail I had (something like Happy Dragon or Crave Dragon) and the...

My second time back & it was just as delicious as my first visit. Our waiter was fantastic. He was married with children and he was so kind to my granddaughter. As my granddaughter wanted substitutions he said no problem. I love their chicken sliders so flavorful. My daughter ordered the 7 cheese mac & cheese minus the bacon and... More

I had lived in Minneapolis most of my adult life prior to moving to Colorado. One of the things I miss most is Crave! There was a bit of confusion as to which server had our table, so getting greeted and served took a bit longer than usual. Once our server was identified, service was good. I highly recommend The...
