CRAVE delivers on one simple thing: Fresh and innovative cuisine along with an impeccable wine selection brought to life in a chic, casual, and vibrant atmosphere. The menu evokes the tastes of the new American palate - featuring wood-oven pizzas, roasted meats, sushi, pastas and salads that are seasonally re-mastered utilizing the freshest ingredients. A grand sushi bar extends the dining experience appealing to both traditional sushi lovers and adventurous epicureans alike.
This place was so dirty and disgusting! Loud, unsanitary, with rude bartenders. Ours was so drunk, he paid no attention to us. Sushi was all things that I have seen in other places. They think they are a top of the line place and are FAR from it.
My husband and I truly enjoy sushi. We've enjoyed dining at Sakura, Nami, Sushi Tango, Fujiya, Tiger Sushi, Ichiban, Azia/Anemone and a few other. However, Crave is our favorite. The fish is of the highest quality and freshness. The sushi bar is small. Sometimes we've gotten poor service at the bar but that has improved over time. The majority of the sushi chefs are very friendly. Crave offers a variety of specialty rolls that are bright and flavorful. The Mexican roll, though nontraditional, is a must. The California rolls are made with real crab instead of Sea Leg.
The main dining area offers an eclectic menu. The pasta dishes have been delicious. The meat dishes are always cooked to perfection.
Crave can be very crowded on weekends. The hostess staff is young and often is a bit snotty. Luckily if we haven't had to say more than a few words to them.
Crave also offers sushi classes. My husband and I had a wonderful time with Tony (head sushi chef). You learn how to make the basic sauces, rice, roll techniques. We were provided with the recipes for the rice and sauces as well as given a resource list. The class is definitely worth the fee if you want to learn to make your own rolls.
The price range is moderate. The quality of the food has been exceptional. The wait service is adequate for the sushi bar and outstanding in the main dining. Management is always receptive of comments and has strived to make improvements.
The new location at Mall of America offers a larger facility and the hostess staff seem more friendly.
We had the best meal and the best service in Minneapolis. We love Sushi and their menu is fresh and I dare say the Miso soup is the best in the Cities. We also have tried their brunch menu and was very good and the Eggs Benedict was NOT ladened with sauce to mask the flavor.
This noisy, crowded place has been popular with the hip, artsy crowd since the early 1980s, but do not be
intimidated. Everyone can enjoy the great food, friendly service and pleasant surroundings. Come for the spectacular fire roasted pizza, ...
