We chose Crave because we were looking for somewhere new to try out. Our server was friendly and enthusiastic but not very attentive. I had the flat iron steak which was pretty chewy. The blue cheese mashed potatoes were very good. I had the flourless...More

Heard a lot of great things about this place and gave it a try. A bit pricey for what it was and nothing really blew my taste buds away. The service was good and so we're the drinks. But the food was bland at best....More

We had lunch here on a Monday. Not busy so we got a lot of personal attention. The service was great, server was sweet and knowledgeable. We would definitely visit again. I recommend the chicken and waffles if you are a fan.

Really high class. We always enjoy our meal here, and take our friends and family whenever they are in town. Delicious food and attentive staff.

Have eaten here a couple times now. Creative menu with varied options. Solid vegetarian options. Service very good even at horseshoe shaped table for 8/9 which must be a challenge to serve. Efficient lunch service. Relatively inexpensive for quality of food and service.

Crave is an upscale, yet family friendly place to eat. The grilled cheese and tomato soup is unreal. The last time we were there we had the BLT with lobster....oh my...what a delicious combination. It is a little noisy, on a busy night, but well...More

Had dinner at Crave before a show at The Akron Civic Theatre and what a treat. Crave has enjoyed a stellar reputation in downtown Akron and with good reason. The food has never disappointed and service was good. I had the steak wrap with truffle...More

While visiting the area, we tried CRAVE for a late afternoon lunch. Everything was top notch. The knowledgeable waiter, after prodding, recommended the alligator appetizer which was great, accompanied with a spicy sauce. Our companions ordered and loved the fried green tomatoes. I had to...More

They do have excellent fries but for some sandwiches it's an up charge. I tend to order the side salad with the house dressing.
