5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

I used to love the Tipsy Teapot for lunch and so I have tried Crave several times for lunch and dinner. I love the diverse menu and the urban feel of the restaurant now. Last night was a particularly great experience. Food was wonderful and well presented. Service was great, our waiter was terrific. Live jazz was a treat and... More

I went here with colleagues for a work related lunch when in town. The service was speedy, and the quality of the food high. None of us managed to finish off the large portions, but they offered boxes to take it away. I thought the prices were really reasonable for what we paid. I can highly recommend the courgette fries... More

I just have to say that I was very disappointed when my daughter and I went to what we thought was the Tipsy Teapot restaurant yesterday. We always enjoyed the Tipsy Teapot because it was a small bit of uniqueness in the monotony that is "Uptown" Greenville. Now.....it is Crave and it is just like every other restaurant that we...

The food is very tasty and reasonably priced, the cafe-esque atmosphere is comfortable and the coffee is awesome.

The food was pretty good but the tea did not have a lot of flavor, it tasted more like plain warm water with a hint of tea. There is no gluten free option even though Urban Spoon says they do. The atmosphere was cool though and it seemed like a good place to do work and study.

Loved the special Valentine's Day dinner. One vegetarian, one celiac, and two picky senior were all more than satisfied with the presentation, execution and flavor of the food. Service was very slow but also very attentive and accommodating. This is something easily remedied in the future by modifying their reservations. The readily admitted that all reservations for the event were... More

Tipsy Teapot is definitely different! A small restaurant in the middle of a used bookstore. I went there to try something different. What strikes me the most is that it seems to try too hard to be "that quirky, hip spot for college students and profs." The food was okay, but higher priced than other local places for similar items.... More

Heard its under new ownership and the night we went it was the first time the guy was making our food. It was great!. Books all over all... More

So nice to get to see some comedy in this city. I'm really shocked there is no comedy club in this city. But this place was fun. Nice little hipster coffee shop setting. The host was good and the acts were short and to the point. We will definitely return.

Thank Derek G
