Worst cake ever. Dry and tasteless. $80 for a cake I could have purchased at Kroger. Would not put any graduation related decoration on the cake for our daughter's Ph.D celebration. Said "we don't do that". Guy who took our order was rude and snooty. And to top it off the cake was not big enough to feed 25 people... More

When I walked in, Cravings had a diner feel and look to it. Though we were the only ones in the restaurant, the man at the cash register who ended up waiting our table barely spoke much less gave us eye contact. Not welcoming. Paper napkins, well used water glasses and thick, undersized "wine" glass cheapened the $50 lunch experience.... More

Great food, spectacular martinis!! One funny thing is I've never ordered more than appetizers and/or desserts from the actual menu! Many things look great but they ALWAYS blow me away with the daily specials!

Owners are clearly bored and not interested in owning a restaurant. Tacky décor, rude condescending waiter and severely overpriced nothing special skimpy food. Hey, if you are going to offer window seating - CLEAN THE WINDOW. Booth seating is very uncomfortable. Two award winning desserts - 1993 & 1995 is a generation ago and isn't a selling point today. Come... More

A great place to have lunch and, of course, super deserts! A nice range of offerings and all seemed delicious.

Remember this is a restauraant and a bakery. My favorite appetizers are the goat cheese tart or the wild mushroom tart. The entrees are usually quite simple, but very nice. And the desserts are to die for. There are always some desserts on the menu and a dozen others in the display case. If you've had only commercial versions of... More

My husband and I went to Cravings on 03/29/14 at approximately 3:00pm. We enjoy searching for small local businesses to support and decided we would try Cravings for an afternoon treat. I have never been made to feel like I was so "beneath" someone in all of my life! The customer service was terrible. I even commented on how good... More

I had heard great things about Cravings and one weekend I decided to try it with a friend. The restaurant itself is super cute and the tables are spacious and the view by the window is nice. The menu was diverse and we were able to easily find something that we both wanted. I had the chicken salad sandwich and... More

Phenomenal in every respect . I actually hired Mr Brennan to cater a brunch and it was just excellent in every way. What a treasure he is and how fortunate we are to have him in St Louis

Lunch was good but not great. Met a friend here before seeing a show at the rep.. Our waiter was totally clueless. I asked him about a couple of items on the menu and he actually took the menu from me to try and find the answer.
