Make sure that you make a reservation. This place is busy and there is a good reason for it: the food is just amazing! Not enough you can enjoy it in a comfy atmosphere.

I was on a self-guided tour of Hudson River Valley art and food and had just finished a workshop at the CIA in Hyde Park centered on food of the area. I selected Crave because its menu showed a similar interest, some dishes locally sourced, others as parallels from elsewhere. I was on a duck/foie gras tear and enjoyed Crave's.... More

We had our first dinner at Crave with another couple who had dined there several times before and had very good opinions of the place. My husband enjoyed his Sky Farm Green first course. I took a bite of my Tagliatelle Pasta and was stunned by its extreme saltiness. After gulping down half my glass of water and made another... More

Food was all in all, quite good. Menu was a little hard to choose from, nothing grabbing me, but the gnocchi was pretty good. Nice enough atmosphere and friendly enough staff. Reasonable value. Right next to the pedestrian bridge with easy parking.

Until recently, my son has worked there since it opened, so I might be a bit biased. But I really think they have some of the best food in the Hudson Valley, and that is saying something with all of the CIA chefs around the area. I am never disappointed when I go there. And I like the small, intimate... More

For our 44th anniversary we did our first trip to the Hudson River Valley, for a one week stay. We dined for lunch and dinners in Tarrytown, Poughkeepsie, and Kingston. We had Sunday brunch at the Crave Restaurant. Very friendly staff. Service was very good. We had French omelets with spinach inside and a fresh salad. Very good quality food... More

My wife and I had dinner tonight at Crave where we both commented our individual meals were each one of the best we've ever had. Our server, Nichole was attentive, helpful, and poised. We'll be back.
