Crave Kitchen & Cocktails Ratings and Reviews
I've never had a bad meal at Crave. This was our second year in a row of going to Crave for Valentine's Day (we've also been in many others times throughout the year) and as always the food and service were amazing.
For Valentine's Day they did a 5 course meal that was beyond amazing. Our waitress (whose name I unfortunately cannot remember though I believe it started with an "A") was very sweet and the perfect level of attentive. The atmosphere is really perfect for a nice dinner out, but our experience was made even better by being seated in one of the booths near the back, which felt a bit more romantic for Valentine's Day.
Our meal was so good. For the first course I had the caesar salad and my boyfriend has the red pepper bisque. Second course we both went with the pork belly, served on grit cake with tiger shrimp and Crave's mac sauce. We had also requested an additional appetizer of the Oyster's Rockefeller because we had to try them and that did not disappoint. After a round of sorbet (lemon for me, blackberry for my boyfriend) it was on to the main course, Chateaubriand served with potatoes and vegetables. It's during this round that I started feeling full, very disappointing with one more course to go. For the dessert course I went for the red velvet cake while my boyfriend went for the creme brûlée. Creme brûlée is typically my go to dessert at Crave, but the red velvet cake was worth the deviation.
All in all, another perfect meal and Valentine's Day. <3 Crave.
Crave made for a great birthday brunch! My twin sister and I wanted to try a new place for birthday brunch (two birthdays!) and chose Crave. We had great service with Nadia who helped us select our entrees. We started off with Fizzy something cocktail and wine along with the red bliss potatoes - a great start! She went with the mac n cheese, which was good yet surprisingly, nothing special, with less flavor than we hoped to get. I got the scramble without eggs and with the grits which was very good. Would get that again.
With it being dual birthday celebrations, we were given two desserts on the house - super special. We went with the recommended chocolate cake (decadent) and apple pie/crisp offering which was good.
Crave beat our expectations and will be a repeat spot. Warmer and more flavorful mac n cheese and more interesting ambiance (small, cramped tables aren't fun) would get it to 5 stars.
We visited Charleston for the weekend and decided to try Crave for dinner with our two kids (ages 8 & 10). The service was outstanding - so friendly and welcoming. I could see many people on dates here as well as a handful of families - and all felt welcome and appropriate. We had a comfortable booth and the kids menu had lots of good choices on it. The she-crab soup was delicious and so was the Greek humus appetizer. The only complaint - there was an extra $2 fee for "over the rocks pour" if you order a drink - this should have be shared by the server when you order so you know the drink is $10, not $8...
My wife and I went on Saturday night to celebrate Valentines and had a wonderful time! Our usual server Patrick had our table prepared for our arrival including a few pink roses for my wife! We shared a main course of grilled Chilean Sea Bass, grilled scallop and tempura lobster tail over cheddar grits's with grilled vegetables! Fabulous meal overall!!
When something is wrong with a dinner ( bad scallop) they apologized and brought another scallop. Excellent customer service would have been to take something off the bill, bring two scallops or not charge us for the coffee we had. Just an above and beyond way to apologize
for a disrupted dinner.
These guys absolutely crushed it! Hats off to management of this place for consistently ensuring a fantastic experience every time you dine! This one was no exception. Not thinking, I had requested a booth on a Saturday night but they didnt have one available as they reserve them for groups of 3 or more when it's busy, which makes sense. Anthony (the manager) was incredibly gracious about it and it just shows how much they care. Word must be getting around because they were packed!
We took friends to Sunday brunch and it didn't disappoint. The portions are large (my omelet had a t least 4 eggs and could have fed 2 almost) and the potatoes were the best I've ever had! Everyone loved their meals and to top it off they make awesome Bloody Mary's! Will definitely be going back
Had not been to the restaurant in several years and decided to go back for restaurant week menu. Upon arrival they could not accomodate the booth I requested. So instead we were seated at a table for two in the middle of the room. Our waiter Patrick was fantastic!! We went to order the beef wellington and were advised the kitchen was challenged with cooking the meat properly. So we ordered off the regular menu and shared each item ordered; the scallops and the hanger steak. Neither lived up to the reputation. A very disappointing night! Will not go back!
We visited with friends for dinner during restaurant week. The food varied and was not consistent, although the quantity was about right. The beef en daube was cooked beyond well done and tough; the pastry was leaden. The trout amandine looked pretty but was dry and so heavily crusted that the delicate trout was lost. The salmon was lovely and appeared to be cooked perfectly but my friend thought the sauce tasted like mayonnaise. The green beans were cold & soggy with garlic & the "blackberry" compote had lots of blueberries but few blackberries in evidence. It was delicious but it was a stretch to call it a "blackberry" compote. The waitress was not attentive; orders were mixed up. It was not crowded when we arrived but got busier. My sense was that there weren't enough servers/ waitresses or that they were new & not trained. We had to repeat requests for wine, received food that was not ours, and were handed plates of food across other members of our party rather than served plates in front of us. We were seated at a table, not a booth, so I told the server to come behind me & set the plate down. The server, not our waitress, had no idea who had ordered what & was trying to hand us our plates. We would have had a mess if one of us had dropped a full plate on the table. The timing was off & our orders were not served together-- one person got his desert -- we had to summon the waitress to bring the others. The interior is pleasant & inviting, the wine list has good choices, but both service & food should have been better.
We went to Crave for restaurant week. The menu looked interesting. The best part of the meal were the appetizers, particularly the tomato pie. The main course that we both ate was beef wellington. The meat was fatty and so tough it required some effort to cut. The crème brullee for dessert was not well prepared and tasted like oil. This was the most disappointing meal we have been served in Charleston in 13 years. We did get fine service from our Irish waitress. We did not like having exposure to the kitchen from our table. Would not recommend Crave to any of our friends.
Maybe I had too high of expectations after all I'd heard about Crave. We waited for almost an hour to order even though the restaurant was not busy (11am on a Saturday morning). I ordered a very simple meal, stating that I wanted a salad with greens, tomatoes, bell pepper, onion and chicken. All of these items were available. The salad I received had another five ingredients, none of which were plain vegetables. Perhaps some people would appreciate the bacon and eggs and olives etc but if I wanted those, I would've simply ordered the Cobb salad that included them... anyway, the patio seating was nice. Will try other restaurants in the area before going back.
It was Charleston Restaurant Week but we ended up ordering from the menu! My friends both ordered the FAMOUS mac and cheese and it was good, not "life changing" as someone reviewed. I was impressed with the call confirming my reservation and the ?'s asked-was it a special occasion and any food allergies. The girl that called was extremely personable. My Hangar Steak was outstanding; cooked perfect temp!
We were there for the Charleston Restaurant Week promotion, which offers a special three course fixed price meal. The Restaurant Week selections were not on the regular menu but fell short in our opinion. They were OK but we think the regular menu enjoyed on other visits was better quality and value.
We are local to Charleston and decided to visit for Restaurant Week since we have not been there before. It was delicious! Great food, good portion size and our server was right on with her suggestions . Tried the award winning Mac 'n Cheese in addition to the Restaurant Week offering ... sooooo good! We will be back.
We went to meet a friend after the New Years holiday. Food was great and our server was fantastic. I had the filet mignon, cooked perfectly, and the mashed potatoes were very tasty. Simple dish done well. My wife had the cedar plank salmon and our friend had the famous fried chicken. Both were extremely happy! We will return!
The Mac and Cheese is Life Changing just as Enquire Magazine says it would be. We went for breakfast, but since they offer Brunch, we were able to order the Mac and Cheese. Let's just say, we loved the mac and cheese and completely neglected our breakfast foods! A must go when in Mt Pleasant or Charleston!
