We tried six other dinner places in the area, and this was by FAR the best! We decided to just not worry about cost and get what we liked. We were quite hungry and started with the scallop appetizer, then the green salad with pear, and the beef stew entree. We had the creme brulee and chocolate cheesecake for dessert.... More

The food, the decor the wait staff was 5 star! I truly wanted to come back a second night.BUT the woman they had as "entertainment" was like nails on a blackboard . Being a performer and vocal coach , it was painful to hear the piercing high notes and the abuse to her guitar. Maybe the owners will tell her... More

From the outside you might be put off by the fact that this place is connected to a Quick Check mini-mart, DON'T LET THAT STOP YOU! Once you walk through the door it's like you've been transported to the heart of New York. Really great decor and ambiance, nice wait staff, BYOB, and excellent (slightly pricey) food. I had the...

We have been fans of Krave from our very first dinner . We have dined there as a coupe and with family and friends at least a dozen times. The meals are always delicious. Service is friendly and attentive without being overbearing.

We enjoyed our dinner here last night. I especially liked the Smoked Gouda & Venison Mac 'n Cheese! My fish was excellent, also. Creative "Mock-tails" was nice for non-drinkers. We'd go back.
