This is a busy restaurant and you need a reservation. But later it starts to quiet down. Food was very good and a varied menu.

I've been to Crave many times and would love to love them but tend to fall short of providing real value and great food. This visit was quick as we intended to do apps and drinks but after receiving our first app decided to move on to a nearby restaurant. Our guacamole and chips was the smallest plate of guac/chips...

Aloha roll was a decent appetizer. The Crave salad was very good. My mahi mahi entrée was over seasoned, the asparagus was hard. Didn't clear appetizer plates before bringing food. The service was uneven and took forever to refill water glasses. Brought us check before we were done ordering. Overall I found the food disappointing as well as the service.... More

My friend and I ordered the Mahi mahi on the special with the spinach and enjoyed it very much. His "grape" lemonade had a few grapes in it but no grape juice- which made it interesting. I had the alcoholic version of blueberry lemonade and thought it was good but a bit weak. The service was excellent. Its a bit... More

Always seems to be busy, very popular place to eat and drink. Can be loud at peak times but that adds to the atmosphere. Very broad selection of food which I have always found to be good. You may have to wait for a table if you have not booked, but the bar is a friendly place to do that.

The menu at Crave is pretty adventurous for Minnesota, with good sushi and sashimi, as well as the usual flatbreads and burgers. However, for example, there is a great Spicy Lamb Burger with carmelized onions and tsatziki which I really enjoyed, along with a side of sweet-potato tots. Nice selection of wines by the glass or bottle, but a rather... More

And this was probably our last visit to Crave, at least if going as a family with our three young kiddos. The policies at Crave are so inconsistent that you never know what you're going to get with the whole "kids eat free" deal they offer on Sundays that it's so maddening, particularly if you're like us who are budget-conscious...

This restaurant works well for our family with a vegetarian (who enjoys the sushi), a picky eater who loved the ribeye and parents who enjoy interesting dishes.
