“Excellent food; excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2011

The scallops over lobster risotto with grilled green beans was wonderful! There was more than I could eat. I also enjoyed the special appetizer--brie, and a delicious coconut cake. The entire meal was delicious. Our server was attentive and charming. The place was crowded--it was Friday night--but it wasn't noisy. We'll be back many times!

“Excellent Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2011

Our first trip to the area was made even better by our decision to dine at Crave. The Filet and Sea Scallops were more delicious than we thought possible! We were thrilled with the portions of asparagus and green beans with our entrees -- at least double the amount that we were used to having at any other restaurant. LOVED the lobster risoto (huge chunks of lobster) and could've made a meal of that! The breads and spread before the meal were delicious as well. Service was top-notch. Very reasonable prices! Will definitely come back next trip to the area.

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2011

Service was good. Got a very reasonable glass of wine because it was still happy hour. Calamari, she crab soup and lobster risotto were outstanding.
good prix fixe menu for restaurant week. Didn't love the chili sauce on the mussels. Nice ambiance. My 10-year-old daughter thoroughly enjoyed herself, too.

“Amazing vegeterian sides- at extremely reasonable prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2011

If you are vegan- CRAVE is for you. Even if you aren't and just love fresh veggies- the sweet potato fries, french garlic green beans, gorganzola mashed potatoes, and mushroom risotto are absolutely fabulous. The sides were extremely generous, and the $3.50 each just can't be beat. The service was excellent, you won't be disappointed.

“Crave is a hidden gem!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2011

I have eaten at Crave five times now, each time ordering something different. Food is spectacular, service is superb, selection is diverse, and prices are very reasonable. I have recommended Crave to at least 20 people, all of which have rave reviews. The divine cuisine of Charleston comes to Mt. Pleasant! I highly recommend this (and the Pasta Bolognese is better than you get in Italy!) :)
