Very nice

Nice setting. Small place. Friendly staff. Nice parings of food. Worth a try. Parking is limited, but worth finding a stop.

Found this restaurant through Tripadivsor and read the reviews. What a great find! Fine dinning and later a nice stroll on the Walkway over the Hudson! Small, cozy, romantic and very creative menu that changes, fresh food. will not disappoint.

Went with three old friends for a reunion. Based the selection on Trip Advisor reviews and can't help but join the chorus. Great menu, appealing ingredients, good variety and unanimous praise( and clean plates) from everyone at the table. Service was efficient and friendly - what more can you ask? And the bridge overhead is a great treat, too.

Crave is almost directly under the Riverwalk. The food is first class and the wait staff excellent and knowledgeable. We have been there many times for dinner and absolutely never have been disappointed.

It was a quiet evening. Food was excellent. I think that should be given when you have CIA campus located in the area. Portions are small which is good. I had the Kale ceaser salad and one of the pasta dishes with braised short rib. Excellent! Will be back to try their nice patio area. It was too cold during... More

Small space, small menu lends itself to the creative and very fresh food Crave offers. Have never been disappointed there, service and food always impeccable.

My husband and I enjoyed our dinner at Crave. The space is cozy, so I would recommend reservations. The cocktails are excellent. We tried the escargot appetizer, which was fresh and tasty. I ordered the lamb shank, which was very good and perfectly cooked. My husband ordered a special--rabbit filled ravioli--which was good, but could have used more sauce. For... More

I enjoyed a dinner at Crave Restaurant last month. Service was efficient and attentive. I felt comfortable being there alone and never felt ignored. I ordered a beet salad and a main dish. The beet salad was very fresh, moist and crunchy. The main dish was a duck breast. I asked the waiter how it was prepared but he didn't... More

The pulled pork is one of their best dishes. Do it for lunch instead of dinner. Price is better for what you get.

My aunt took my husband & I to this restaurant, when we visited Poughkeepsie from New Zealand. Our meals were fantastic and service was very good. I wouldn't hesitate to go back there one day.
