This is a lesson in realizing that location is not the measure of a restaurant. Downtown Ansonia is not generally deemed a mecca for entertainment. We ended up here as almost an afterthought, and realized that we have avoided local fare by mistake. I tend to be admittedly picky about what I eat. I like originality, and insist on flavor....

We have been here several times for dinner. It is a great atmosphere but very loud so do not plan on any meaningful conversation. Appetizers and salads are generally better than the main courses which are disappointing. The lounge and live music make it worth the trip.

We always have a great time here. The menu is large and there is plenty on the plate. We just have some appetizers and are more than satisfied. They have several craft beers and a great drink menu with specials. Prices are reasonable. It is a nice quiet place for a romantic dinner. The service is fantastic.

We loved the food and the atmosphere at crave. And the martinis- yum!! Always great service. And on certain nights they have live music (which is why we usually head there on Friday nights for the piano player).

This is my wife's and my favorite restaurant. The tapas are great, the drinks are great, and the owner, Libby, is awesome. She's always out and around talking with diners. You have to try the dates!

My husband and I ate here on a Saturday night and were promptly seated. We ordered a few appetizers: Surtido (a sampler plater, calamari, and spinach and artichoke dip. The dip was pretty bland, the calamari was pretty good although a small portion for the price, the Surtido was a good mix. The datil which is a date stuffed with... More

Food is always great. The empanadas and mufungo are amazing! The atmosphere is classy Spanish resultant for the valley! Unfortunately the service has been less desirable the couple times I have been there.
