    If you're in search of a delightful outdoor dining experience in the downtown area, look no further than this hidden gem. Nestled away from the bustling streets, the restaurant offers a stunning patio that promises a serene escape and an unforgettable dining experience. The outdoor space is truly a standout feature. With its elegant setup and charming ambiance, it's a rarity in this part of the city. The live performer during my visit added a wonderful touch, providing a soothing soundtrack that perfectly complemented the relaxed atmosphere without overpowering conversations. This subtle yet impactful addition made the evening feel special and unhurried. Architecturally, the restaurant is a visual delight. The building's features blend historical charm with modern aesthetics, creating a captivating backdrop for any meal. It’s clear that a lot of thought has gone into preserving the character of the space while making it inviting and comfortable for diners. The culinary experience here is equally impressive. The yuca fries are a must-try; they arrived at the table golden and crispy on the outside, with a soft and flavorful center that was simply bursting with taste. My companion couldn't stop raving about the Mahi Mahi, which I regretfully didn't sample because I was thoroughly engrossed in my pasta carbonara. And what a carbonara it was! Perfectly cooked al dente pasta—a rare find—was the base for a dish that hit all the right notes. The smoky pancetta provided just the right amount of savory bite, while the rich, pronounced egg flavor marked it as a true carbonara, avoiding the common pitfall of being overwhelmed by cream. Each bite was a reminder of what this dish should taste like when done correctly. From start to finish, my experience at this restaurant was nothing short of delightful. The combination of excellent food, a beautiful setting, and the pleasant atmosphere created by the live music makes it a place worth visiting again and again.

    A good friend and I had a most wonderful lunch at Crave this week. We had a booth in a quieter part of the restaurant, had excellent service, terrific food, delicious dessert, and great wine. The menu is so extensive--there is something for everyone, including vegetarians, vegans, gluten-free, and those watching calories (maybe skip the dessert if that's you!). The s'more brownie dessert was excellent--we ordered an extra scoop of Rocky Road ice cream since we were sharing--the perfect finisher for a great lunch. Can't say enough good things about this place. We enjoyed it!
