Cool place to hang out! we had a group of 10 and we fit comfortably into the U shape couches up the top level. Came on the Gators coach night, so understandably noisy, but gave it atmosphere! Dishaes are tapas style, however on the larger side which is good! Had the crabby diane & the ribs - both delicious! Our waiter was Mike, who was funny, quick and on the ball - drinks and food came quickly and alwys with a smile and a joke. we all enjoyed his service and attention to the table!

We visited KC Crave on a Saturday night. Though we had called for a reservation, we still waited about 20 minutes to be seated. We ordered the tsunami chips, which probably have no redeeming nutritional value, being potato chips smothered in cheese and bacon. Basically death on a plate, but tasty! We also had some delicious fried green tomatoes, ahi tuna, and a couple of very enjoyable cocktails. The only fly in the ointment was the noise level. There was live music upstairs and people had to raise their voices, that was okay. However, about half of the clientele seemed to be young women shrieking, cackling, and squealing. It was hard to enjoy the food when every few minutes some high-pitched blast of sound would practically shake you out of your chair. My ears were ringing for an hour afterwards. If you’re planning to have a conversation during dinner, you may want to go somewhere else; if you want a place for you and your girlfriends to scream like banshees, KC Crave will be perfect.

The atmosphere is great. The decor is simple and updated. They have a nice lounge area outside with outdoor tables as well. The food portions are huge--they can definitely be shared. The salads are humongous. The Tsunami chips appetizer was really good and enough to share among 7 people!
I had the bourbon chicken--not the typical kind. The favors were different, in a good way. We all left stuffed, so we didn't try the any of the desserts. Would go back.

Place was very busy but so worth the wait. Food was fantastic. The desserts was to die for. Definitely recommend. Can be pricey. Fiancé and I spent about 120 dollars. Definitely great restaurant though. Oh I think I have said enough. Must tell you though, menu items are not your typical restaurant items

I have been here twice and enjoyed it each time. A very creative menu, perhaps a little over priced. Great bar and fun drinks too! Ambience is South Beach-ish with many televisions scattered through the building. As others have said, there is absolutely nothing left of CJ's (thank goodness). I have not had a problem with wait staff, but the last time I went I need a walker to get around and the greeter placed us down one set of stairs then up another. Reallly? Doesn't appear to be very handicap friendly. Other than that, recommend it highly. Can be hard to get into late evenings as it has become a see and be seen place
