We were casting about for a place to celebrate an anniversary, and we wanted to avoid downtown New Haven because of the festival there. Found reviews of Crave and said why not? Why not, indeed. As other reviewers have noted, the acoustics are, um, bright....More

Crave is absolutely wonderful. But be warned: It is wonderful in a brick-walled, somewhat noisy, eclectic way. This is not a leather banquettes and starched napkin restaurant (though very clean).

All of our food was fantastic! The best meal we've had on the road to MA. We ordered the clams and shrimp for appetizers. The Cubano was pressed to perfection and was delicious. Even the sweet potato fries were tasty.

This is a lesson in realizing that location is not the measure of a restaurant. Downtown Ansonia is not generally deemed a mecca for entertainment. We ended up here as almost an afterthought, and realized that we have avoided local fare by mistake. I tend...More

We loved the food and the atmosphere at crave. And the martinis- yum!! Always great service. And on certain nights they have live music (which is why we usually head there on Friday nights for the piano player).

This is my wife's and my favorite restaurant. The tapas are great, the drinks are great, and the owner, Libby, is awesome. She's always out and around talking with diners. You have to try the dates!
