Something for Everyone

Crave at West End has a very broad menu with sushi on one side and everything from appetizers to full entrees on the other side. I especially enjoy their preparation of scallops--large, juicy and flavorful. The restaurant is quite large so it's usually easy to get a table even without a... read more

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...

We went for a late night meal/snack so i can't comment on the whole menu but we had an excellent server who took time to visit with us as we were new to the city. I had the tempura sushi bites and there were unique and very tasty - just right for late night. Then we ordered the sample dessert... More

Went here for dinner around 7:30 pm on a very nice spring day. All of the west end restaurants were busy. We had to wait about 5 minutes for a table. The food was very good. I had the jambalaya and it was very good. My colleague had the sea bass which was very good as well. The service was... More

On a recent business trip, we wandered in to Crave for dinner. It was early (around 5:30) and the restaurant was pretty crowded. We didn't have a reservation, so we were told that we would have to be done eating by 7:00. We were a group of 4, so I found this a little weird. The wine selection was decent... More

I went to Crave to get together with a group of friends. There were 8 of us. We arrived and asked to be seated outside, there were 5 or 6 empty tables. We were told they'd move a few tables and seat us right away. After 20 minutes and watching at least 10 other groups be seated we were told.... More
