Took the family of four to Crave midweek for a late dinner. It does not look like much from the outside but as soon as you step in the door you are transformed to a different place - a warm inviting place where the focus is on you. Soft lighting and warm colors made it feel very comfortable even though... More

We've been going there for more at least three years and, until the most recent visits, the place had been a treat to look forward to. Whatever's changed, it is slipping and we apparently are not the only ones to have noticed as the crowd has noticeably thinned. Used to be on weekends you absolutely had to have reservations, now...

We made a return trip to Crave with out of town friends. The diningroom was cold ......fairly empty on a Saturday night. The staff was attentive (actually one lady was in charge). The beet salad was good, I had the salmon: it was rare, the way I like it. Very small portion with a couple of kernels of corn and... More

Thought I would share my experience at Crave this past weekend - We went out to dinner on Saturday and had a 4 person reservation for 6pm. We got seated about 6:10, not a big deal at the time because we had a drink at the bar. Food and drinks were good. We settled the tab and were finishing our... More

The restaurant is small so you need reservations or you can sit at the bar. The food is excellent and very tasty! Relaxed atmosphere and great service.

Took advantage of "Restaurant Week" Had one of the perfectly cooked cider brined pork chops. The duck confit app. was joyous . Service was superb. Can't wait to go back. Don't miss the carrot cake crepes desert.

This was my 2nd vist to Crave and while the food was good, I wasn't as "wowed" as the 1st time. On my 1st visit, the menu & the food were exceptional! I couldn't wait to go back again. I raved about it to everyone. It took awhile, but we finally made it back and we were a little disappointed.... More

We were staying at a local hotel for a wedding. I checked trip advisor for the best rated place to eat. It was crave. Boy it didn't disappoint. It was a Saturday and they had no openings but offered a small table by the bar that we could reserve. The atmosphere is great and relaxing. The staff was friendly and... More
