We have been coming for years and will continue to do so, but the place is just SO loud! It's impossible to have a conversation. The food is good but not great. A recent visit had a swordfish special. While tasty, it was about a...More

I can't say anything negative about Crave. I just had hoped it would keep up with the new places in town. The food and service are good but not outstanding.

Crave is absolutely wonderful. But be warned: It is wonderful in a brick-walled, somewhat noisy, eclectic way. This is not a leather banquettes and starched napkin restaurant (though very clean). Instead, it is the sort of friendly, lively, down-to-earth, truly excellent local gathering place I...More

All of our food was fantastic! The best meal we've had on the road to MA. We ordered the clams and shrimp for appetizers. The Cubano was pressed to perfection and was delicious. Even the sweet potato fries were tasty.

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...More
