I have eaten at this restaurant many time and every time it is delicious! Try the Bamboo Bite...excellent! Also I loved the Coconut Curry Mussels, a few had a little sand but the sauce, the sauce is to die for! Nice atmosphere and we had great service! The first time I took my kids (18 & 12) they were not... More

We sat in the bar area... average food but good service from the bartender. The food came cold and the flatbread was ok.

Loved this restaurant! Was recommended by one of the ladies in our group from class & loved out time together; in November 2015; food for mid-afternoon lunch was excellent - great variety of choices and seating location was wonderful! Would come to this place again for all the above as well as great wait service!

I am a retired mom who had the joy of spending an overnight with my 3 daughters at a hotel near the Mall of America! We were celebrating my daughters 40th birthday and all of our birthdays, actually, because our birth dates are pretty close together in the Fall. We chose Crave Restaurant because of great reviews and a couple... More

I thought the place was very good. We were seated right away and our waitress was spot on. Ordered the shrimp and scallop pan sear and it was very large and super yummy. I do recommend the plate. Gigantic scallops. Super taste.

We visited CRAVE restaurant at the Mall of America in Minneapolis. It is an incredible place !!! The food was wonderful and the wine and beer selections were numerous. Everything we had was perfectly cooked and served. The scallops appetizer was probably the best we have ever tasted anywhere!! The atmosphere was so friendly and comfortable, and absolutely did not... More

Crave used to be a can't miss spot for us but changes to the menu from a few years ago have made us "crave" the food less. Portion sizes and food quality are not what they used to be.

Ate where it used to be overlooking the amusement park when it was the California Café, now it has no view at all. Probably to protect from the noise, and it's still noisy so I guess they needed to do that to help. Big menu, but the food is just average. Service again was ok, not super attentive. She dropped...

We had a group of 15 so we were able to get a private area but were told we needed to be out by 6pm. That was no problem for us as we needed to get on to another event. The food took longer than we expected so we obviously didn't leave by 6pm but they didn't rush us since... More
