Second visit as nice as the first!

Visited again in July and enjoyed everything as much as back in the winter. Appetizers, salad, main course, and dessert were only a little bit more than what Applebee's would be and so much nicer. Great menu selection and ambiance. For sure next time we'll remember to bring our own bottle!

Krave remains the best restaurant in the Newton area. We were reminded of this when we went to another of the "better" restaurants in the area the next night. BYO wine keeps the cost below lesser places. Encountered some bugs outside at dusk. Would be good to use some non-toxic spray on the patio before opening.

Visiting my sister in new Jersey she suggested Krave Cafe and Caterers about which she had heard good things. It was outside of town and I wondered about the location. But once we got there, the food, the service and the atmosphere were first rate. There was seating out in a garden and inside. We selected inside. Five of us... More

The location is deceiving, do not let the location deter you! situated within a small strip mall, it cleverly is hidden by a high brick wall which encloses a patio area with very smart looking decor.....the inside of the restaurant is small and cozy, very chic with atmosphere. everything here is top drawer from the ambience, the menu and quality...

This was our third time dining with Krave and I felt compelled to share the news with Sussex County, that they have a gem! Krave, tantilizes the senses from the first step in the door to the last.

Food wasn't great, lots of negative issues so asked to see the owner. The owner came out and was one of the rudest persons I would ever encounter in my life. Wow, I will never be back...worst service from an owner EVER!!! And it's overpriced to say the very least and they deserve the LEAST!!

This used to be one of the better restaurants in Newton; BYOB but excellent food. I guess times change. The menu is VERY limited; especially after you take out the burger and sandwich selections. Since when does a fine restaurant serve burgers, sandwiches and pizza (aka flatbreads) for dinner? Our appetizer was served partially cold; they had not defrosted it... More

we had a party of 8 and ordered a large variety of food and everything was great. A very good value if you drink wine with your dinner--no corkage fee.
