Good food and atmosphere – Really like the steaks and sushi combo. Good service and atmosphere. Nice outing in Edina I also love going accross to Southdale. Both Galleria and Southdale are my favorite for restaurant choices.
Made me like sushi! – I went to Crave last summer, right before I found out I was pregnant. I finally tried Sushi, and LOVED it! Only to not be able to eat it for nine months!
I had the spiced ahi tuna sushi, and it was so good!
They had a huge variety of food, which can be good, but also overwhelming. I liked the regular menu, but thought their specials, or maybe it was a happy hour type menu, dumbed down the regular menu.
I really enjoyed this place, and would go again for sure. It can be a bit pricey, depending on what you get, it will be a place I'll go when I'm looking for a nicer place to go. I cannot afford it on a regular basis.
Fabulous restaurant – Great food, friendly staff, fun atmosphere! Best happy hour in town! Great place to meet people!
Suppose to be the new craze – Its suppose to be the new craze in Mall of America. Now there is no doubt that what we ordered tasted decent, however their menu seems more confused than anything. I am not sure if they were trying to be a bar menu or a speciality or just all over the place.
The sandwich was decent and as per my friend, the bento box was not bad. So in general it may be a convenient place to grab some food after the long walk in the mall but may not be the place to find a diamond in the rough. There are much better places in twin city offering better food.
Nothing exciting – I am surprised at the rave reviews. There is absolutely nothing special here. The drinks are good. The food is BORING and costly for what you get. Maybe if you live out in the suburbs I can get not wanting to venture far, but no one else has any reason to go to Crave. Not for food, anyway.
RUDE RUDE RUDE – We were excited for a family night out to Crave. The waitress came over just as we sat down and asked us for our drink orders. My husband asked for time to look at the wine list. 25 minutes later after talking to the manager and sushi chef trying to get someone to take our drink orders our waitress came back and yelled "YOU ASKED FOR TIME." Well ya, but not 25 minutes. Needless to say we walked out and WILL NOT be back.
Expected more!!! – The food was bad. It was just like any other place. I expected more for how much PR they get. This is just another place rich investors and no idea what customer service is. Just like Seven and Denny Heckers place Bellanote!
Exceptional Experience – My fiancée and I dined at the Crave located in the Mall of America based on a recommendation of a friend. I was a week night and the restaurant wasn’t too busy. We were greeted and seated immediately. Our waitress offered some great suggestions for drinks. My fiancée ordered the blueberry lemonade (adult variety) and it was absolutely wonderful. Not only was it visually appealing, it also tasted great.
We split the Baked Crab & Artichoke dip. It arrived promptly and tasted amazing. We try artichoke dips at most restaurants and this was one of the best. For dinner I ordered Crunchy Spicy Tuna Roll and she ordered the Sea Scallop & Shrimp Fettuccini. My roll was great, which is a surprise since I didn’t expect to see sushi on the menu and to have such a variety to choose from. The entrée my fiancée order was nothing short of amazing. The scallops and shrimp were plentiful, and the scallops were cooked to perfection. I love scallops and eat them often at restaurants and this was one of the best I have ever had. We were to full to enjoy desert but left more than satisfied with the meal presented to us.
The bill was a bit on the high side but you pay for what you get. Food was great, service was exceptional, and I will return and recommend this location to everyone. Perhaps dining on a slower night during the week helped our experience.
WOW, never expected food this good in a mall! – I went to Crave on reccomendation from a friend. We visited the Galleria location, although I understand they have a few others.
There were 5 in our party and everyone was feeling like something different, and that's exactly what we got. We started with a sushi salad for everyone to share, which was fresh, creative, and tasty. We also tried the pesto shrimp appetizer which was amazing. Grilled prawns on perfectly done bruschetta topped with a wonderful pesto sauce.
I enjoyed the Ron Schara Walleye, which was three generous pieces of perfectly battered and deep fried walleye accompanied by harissa sauced potatoes. It was the best variation of "shore lunch" I have ever tried. My girlfriend had a variety of sushi selections, and enjoyed the creative presentation and inventive flavors. One of our friends had a chicken flat bread that looked and tasted phenominal, another had a chicken stir fry with sobe type noodles, and the other gal we were with had a filet mignon that was done to perfection.
We were all too full for desert, so we declined our extremely nice and attentive server's offer. To our great surprise and delight, she brought us out a few small sundae cups of something the chefs "were just toying around with" for us to try free of charge. It was an amazing pumpkin pie whipped with a pie crust and creamy topping. It was sensational, and the perfect end to a perfect evening.
My only complaint is that I live in St. Cloud, and this place is far for me. But anytime I'm in the Twin Cities, I plan to make Crave my new destination.
Excellent food and ambience! – I've been to Crave several times and found the food and atmosphere excellent! The roasted beet salad with grilled salmon is absolutely the best - you've got to try it! I've also eaten several other dishes there and was never disappointed. The lamb is one of my favorites also, as well as the walleye. And, as one reviewer said, the sushi is the finest around!
I was amazed to learn that most of their food they try to get locally and organic, whenever possible. I've eaten at some of the finest restaurants around the US and in other countries as well, and I must say, I wish there was a Crave in each city I've been to.
The service has always been excellent, and the decor/upkeep throughout boasts of a truly impressive establishment.
