Krave Catering was the MVP of our wedding day! They went above and beyond, and it’s clear their team loves doing what they do! Throughout the planning process, Kate was polite, professional, and easy to communicate with. She has many years of experience in the...industry - she offered us valuable advice and helped us understand what our wedding day would look like. Kate was well-informed and kept us updated about the constantly changing COVID-19 guidelines. We felt very reassured and safe having our wedding during the pandemic. Early in the process, we scheduled a tasting and we appreciated how accommodating they were of the fact that both of our families wanted to join in on the experience. They were receptive to our feedback and by the second tasting they had perfected our wedding day meal. They even created an appetizer and dessert especially for us inspired by our favorite foods. We ended up going with the family style service and it was a hit with our guests! Krave Catering really shined on our wedding day. Kate and her team laid out our centerpieces for us and brought their own decorations for the catering/gift tables to complement ours. We told her we were looking for a modern farmhouse type feel and she definitely delivered! During the actual celebration, her team took very good care of our guests and we particularly loved that Kate made sure to know who my parents, my husband’s parents, and my grandmother were to ensure they had anything they needed. Their team was flexible to unexpected delays to our timeline and they worked really well alongside our other vendors to make our big day a success! At the end of the night, her team tore down all our decorations for us, packed them away for next day pick up, and sent us home with some food so we could enjoy our night as a newly married couple! We honestly couldn’t have asked for a better team! Definitely will be using their catering services again in the future!More

Thai noodle salad ($10 plus $6 for salmon) was just okay - noodles were stiff as if made awhile ago. Just was not good. Charge for tea is $3 - it's hot water and a tea bag - but then you charge 50 cents if...you want honey?????More

Share review Embed review Write an update Edit review 2/12/2020 Fantastic, Not very expensive$$. I had the Tile Fish Special with a great sauce and spicy relish..perfect. My wife had TUSCAN CAVATAPPI Spicy Sausage, Roasted Peppers, Artichokes, Fresh Mozzarella, Parmesan-Pesto Broth, she gave it a...5!. Now the Bread Pudding dessert was out of this world. Don't tell my mom. It came with ice cream too. It is tough to find a bread pudding as good as moms. Resa our waitress, provided perfect service! She knew everything on the menu and was a big help. Reservations are reccomended becasue it is not huge, but very cozy and comfortable and a relaxed atmosphere. OHHHH the scallop appy. special was great! Oh how I wish I remembered the wine! We loved it!More

It was freezing outside and cold in the restaurant - they said the thermostat was locked The waitress paid almost no attention to us....We had a bottle of wine - finally asked for wine glasses - Sat at least 30 minutes before waitress took orders...- Waited a long time and asked where food was - so 4 dishes come out - last one - a salad didn't come for another 10 minutes - There were only two other tables of people - Two of us asked for coffee right away and had to ask again for it - The food for all 5 of us was meh..................More

Love this place! Especially if your looking for some vegetarian options. They have a seasonal menu, everything is made fresh and I believe they source locally. Its small so if you can make reservations. Perfect for ladies lunch or date night. I eaten there and...also used their catering services. Everything was great! I had them prepare a filet mignon for me for a dinner party and everything was prepared so I just have to heat it in the oven. Love, love their zucchini bread. BONUS...It's BYOB too!More

Krave is a great place to go with a small group or that special someone. Cozy atmosphere, outdoor seating, even a "couples" room. The staff is very friendly and accommodating...allowing for substitutions when requested. Started out with the scallop appetizer special made with a delicious...Chorizo sauce. Main course was the Artichoke Chicken. Very tasty but was expecting cutlets not boned chicken. Very small amount of artichokes & mushrooms...would have liked a larger portion. Dessert was the Sticky Toffee Pudding with Vanilla Ice Cream. Very delicious & rich.More

My husband and I were late for a concert but we stopped in for a quick bite. We were very impressed. The menu had lots of vegetarian options. We each had a salad, mine topped with salmon and my husband's topped with a veggie burger....Both were excellent and the service was spot on. We will be back.More

Don’t let its strip mall exterior fool you. Krave has some of the tastiest food I have had. My curried chicken salad sandwich was, dare I say, “krave worthy (sorry)”. My girlfriend’s pasta meal was plentiful, satisfying and both were obviously made with a lot...of love and care. Definitely dine at Krave if you are in the area.More

This is a very cozy place with a varied and eclectic menu. My husband and I have eaten there twice in the last few months and not been disappointed. The chefs put their own spin on the dishes, and the results are mostly good. Even...butter is mixed with ingredients on the unusual side - honey with lime, for example. The soups are outstanding. It's a BYOB, which is a plus for us. We'll be back.More

Not bad if you get there early or the line will be long and the wait even longer. The food was good we felt a little pricy. Geared more toward the younger crowd.

It would be tight if they do that. Outside patio is bigger than inside if that's an option.
