I had heard great things; it was all true. The highlight was the cider donut bread pudding with vanilla ice cream . Truly outstanding. I had the gorgonzola crusted tenderloin. Great cut of meat. My wife had the pork chop and said it perfect. The wine was a great compliment to the meal. Almost forgot, the panettone salad was great.... More

t's really busy so plan ahead if you want to go. They had been open for lunch which was wonderful on a Friday afternoon but without the foot traffic it won't work. The service is always good and the food is excellent. They have now expanded and they have 2 different dinning areas.

The scallops were cooked to perfection and the dish was really good. We had two appetizers ( fried calamari and fried tomatoe and mozzarale) they were so good. The bartender recommended the pumpkin martini that was really good. Had a great evening glad our friends auggested the place.

My son got a GC from a golf tournament and gave it to me. I was a bit leery because my husband is not adventuresome. We went tonight and it was awesome. We ate in the bar which was surprisingly quiet. The chicken wings were phenomenal! My husband had the scallops and the plate was empty- he loved the Brussel... More

Incredibly good food. Seared scallops were amazing and my wife's salmon was delicious. Unfortunately, we could not have a conversation with the couple seated with us. I also didn't feel that La Crema Chardonney was priced right at $12/glass. We live in the next town but the noise level would definitely keep us from going back. I hope that the... More

Wonderful dinner at Crave on a Saturday night, one of the best we have had on the Northshore. They have an attractive bar area with high top tables which was already quite busy at 6:30. We made reservations (thank goodness we did) in the restaurant in the next room which also had a warm, inviting ambiance. We started with creative... More

Talk about a hidden gem! Crave is one of those places you instantly fall with as soon as you step in: sophisticated but casual, spacious yet cozy at the same time. The bar is very large and offers a nice bar menu. My friend and I chose to move to a table, and we had great service and great recommendations.... More

Crave is very busy on the weekend, but it is not difficult to get a reservation during the week. This is probably one of the best restaurants in a 20 miles radius. Food never disappoints, the wine list is good, and there is a great bar where they make pretty gosh-darn good drinks. Have no problem recommending this place to... More
