This restaurant is a hidden gem in Sussex County. Love eating out on the patio. The food is well prepared. Always a great variety of entrees and appetizers. The service has always been top notch. And it's a BYOB restaurant.

Currently the best restaurant in Newton. Food is great, atmosphere is good and the service is friendly and attentive. Really love that it's BYO, too.

As with Joanna332 we were not that happy with our last Krave visit. Pizza and burgers limited gourmet offerings. The fish just tasted old, dry and overcooked. Specials were 30% higher than the most expensive items on the menu, with no prices being given by the server. Waitstaff seemed very young and inexperienced for a long running high-end restaurant.

We have been going to Krave for both lunch and dinner since it first opened. . Additionally, I have used their catering service with delicious results and can honestly say that I have never had a bad meal from Krave. Most recently, a friend and I went for lunch and had the specials: Farmer's Lasagna and Bouillabaisse Quiche, both delicious!... More

This place is nice, but it's not as special as one would think. Attached to a Quick Chek convenience store, Krave's view is of the parking lot, barely blocked by a cement wall. The food's good, but again, nothing special. BYOB. Outdoor seating, but again, you'll be right next to a convenience store parking lot, plus noise from a busy... More

I went with a co-worker for lunch and everything we had was delicious. They brought Rosemary popcorn to the table which was unique and wonderful. Our salads with chicken were nice and fresh with juicy chicken. Even the water was citrus flavored. They take time in polishing details in what is served.

Excellent food! Friendly, fast service, yet they don't push you out the door! Their balsamic dressing is so good, we've picked up the salad for take-out some nights!

We visited Krave for Saturday night dinner. Warmly greeted and seated in a cozy, quite little alcove our waitress appeared quickly with water and the eclectic menu. Krave is a BYOB (Bring Your Own Booze) and we did. The citrus infused water wasn't to everyone's taste and it was quickly and cheerfully replaced. Our appetizers of crab cake, beef chimichuri...
