So disappointed. We have ordered from here before and the food was good, not the best, but good. Today we placed another order, our usual, around $180. When it arrived, on time, the food was all packaged into 2 bags. The problem is we got hot and cold food plus Mochi ice cream. All of our hot food was room temperature, our cuts of tuna and yellowtail were room temperature, our rolls were room temperature and our Mochi was soup. When I called the restaurant, I was told I'd need to contact Grub Hub for a refund. After multiple phone calls, I was informed that Grub Hub can only issue a refund with restaurant approval and the manager, same one I talked to, denied it. That is horrible customer service and even if the food was 10 out of 10, we would never again go to or order from this place after not being able to eat any of the $180 of 7/10 sushi.
Update: Took 100% of the food back untouched. Still no refund. Had to cancel the transaction through our bank.
Excellent desserts and crepes. The rest of the food is okay. Service is very mixed. Occasionally, it's great - more of than not, there is a huge line and servers are not friendly.
Went here on Saturday morning for the first time. I tried Caprese Panini with Chicken ($10) and cappuccino. I thought at cafe like this would have really good cappuccino but nothing was special about it and it was disappointing. The panini was good but I wish they had prosciutto and brie panini on their menu.
My husband tried banana crape and it was very delicious! I'd come back to try other panini or dessert again.
This place is a nice locals spot. Crave tends to stay open a little later (midnight-esk) than most places in the area. The paninis and the crepes are nice, nothing out of this world, but still worth a try. The coffee is pretty good and the free WiFi and being open late really makes me smile. They also offer frozen yogurt (a little watery - ok in a pinch). The wait staff is a mixed bag boardering on excellent all the way to "is there anyone home in there". Try it, but i bet there will be a lot of lovers and haters on this one.. Njoy
