I didn't find the food here to be particularly great, especially for the price, but it was ok. I think the real thrill of this place is that it's a great celeb spotting destination. I used to walk by on a daily basis, and saw many famous

this place has amazingly fresh food, incuding incredible mixed fruit plates. great for vegetarians and meat eaters alike with an emphasis on healthy but yummy food. very flexible and helpful staff. also a popular hangout for hollywood stars and industry meetings.

This is a my personal favorite place to eat. The portions are large enough to share, the prices are decent, and their deserts the best. It features a full bar wonderful atmosphere, and friendly staff.

Excellent meal and great location. Been there couple of times and never was disappointed. Yesterday I tried New York Steak with chipotle butter... It was one of the best steak I've ever had. Definitely will be back.

Good food, good service, good price. I just went here the other day and I had a good experience. No 5 stars only because there was no WOW factor.

Cravings is amazing.

Four things are important to me when I go to a restaurant: food, price, ambiance, and service.

The food at Cravings is phenomenal, you can't beat the price, who doesn't love sitting on the

Sunset strip, and the service is great.

My favorite appetizers are: caprese, italian wedding soup, and the green salad.

My favorite entrees are the whole fish, peppercorn New York steak, chicken curry, and the lamb.

And don't forget the Sunday brunch.

The only good part about this meal was the wine. Walking in we were approached by rubber mats, an open closet full of bleach and a gumball machine, - shouldve taken this as a sign but alas we were hungry and sat down, Our waiter who was high as a kite was ridiculous but at least pleasant. The wine was the ONLY good part of this meal. I dont know if the people reviewing this place think Applebees is amazing food, because this was on the same level except i like Applebees BETTER! My mother and I had $15 calamari ceasar salads. It was the WIMPIEST salad I have ever seen in my life. the lettuce as old and lifeless, the calamari rubbery and stale (we were worried about food poisoning) and a tiny dust of cheap powdery parmeasan (NOT EVEN GRATED) and a few mushy chickpeas. The dressing was congealed and gross and we were starving but couldnt even eat these salads. My bf had shortribs that he barely touched and i wont even tell u what the presentation looked like, and my dad had the famous 'eggplant rotini' which the waiter said was a recipe that 'went back generations' and later said he was KIDDING! Great, thanks for the reccomendation. At least he was kidding bc this pathetic dish needs a LOT of work- generations of work if you ask us! The ambience ONLY outside was fine but the inside looked like a rundown diner. The menus were plastic and dirty and everything was a massive dissapointment. Coming from NY I have a pretty high standard in dining but I dont need it to be fancy- just TASTY. which none of this was.
SAVE YOUR CRAVINGS for elsewhere- the Standard Diner is even a major upgrade!

Cravings is amazing. My family and I have been regular customers, and rightly so. The food is amazing. my absolute favourite is the fresh salads (Greek Salad especially or the fresh Caprese) followed by chicken piccatta. I've tried most of their dishes however, and they are all DELICIOUS! great price, great ambience, great service..what more can you want?! 5 stars!

All and all I usually like coming here as long as its not too packed. Really good selection since they are good at what they make. I don't think its overly pricey and so I think the place really does a good job all around.

Greek Salad and Crab Ravioli... my fav! The best part is that you get to bring your own wine and enjoy the views of sunset while you sit back and relax. Its a great place for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

I used to drive all the way from Santa Barbara, and make it a point to go out of my way, from wherever I was at in the city, to have Lunch or dinner at Cravings. Now that I am in the neighborhood, it's just a hop and a skip away. I love this neatly tucked away spot on Sunset. The food is great, the atmosphere is perfect for a casual lunch or a semi formal dinner. I love the little breezeway seating, indoors seating if you like it. Here's how they got me though. Are you ready? The Artichoke!! I love to trounce around the city trying everyones artichokes. I will just say, plain out, it's the best Artichoke around. Love the Lasagna. Traditional and perfect. The service is friendly and lively. They were good enough sports to let me conduct TV interviews on their back patio. I even point my celebs to this spot! Cheers!

I'm visiting form nyc so my friend & I have been trying to eat at as many places as possible. This was probably the best so far. I ordered the seared tuna with pesto, I like it on the rare side & it was cooked perfectly I almost didn't need a knife. The fish was not chewy or tough & it was very fresh. My friend had the stuffed chicken which was also amazing. Needless to say there was nothing left on our plates we even ate our veggies =). The portions were perfect & the pricing was good, the check for both dinners & a bottle of wine was only $80. We will be dinning here again I heard the crab ravioli is to die for, that will be my next try.

I must qualify this review by saying that I have never been here in person, but I received delivery from Labite. However my issues are with the food itself so I think it's still fair. I ordered the crab ravioli and was disgusted. Lumps of pasta stuffed with canned crab with tons of cartilage and no cheese or seasoning of any kind. I ate two and simply couldn't eat the rest. Their "tiramisu cheesecake" is a wholly unremarkable cheesecake with nothing at all to distinguish it as "tiramisu" without the name. It tasted store-bought rather than freshly made. I enjoyed the tapenade that came with the bread rolls, but one roll was so stale it was literally impossible to eat.

While I understand that restaurants don't always produce their best work for delivery orders, I'm amazed that they flout their crab ravioli as a "favorite." It was literally the worst I've ever had. I'm glad I found this out through delivery before deciding to try it out in person.

This is my first time writting a review for a restaurant , but since my visit at Cravings Restaurant i felt the obligation of sharing my awesome experience with everyone, and let everyone know how delicious their New York Steak with Chipotle butter is. My first visit was mothers day, and i was there with 3 other guest we all order diffrent entrees to try a little bit of everything. I had the New york Steak with Chipotle butter.OMG !!!! it was amazing they Served the warm steak and add a compound chipotle butter that melts on top of your steak delicious !! And not to mention the Desserts they have a housemade cheesecake that is to die for and the Tiramisu you got to try it !! Their customer service is an extra great topping to the their amazing food.Im a culinary art student so i know all the basics to cooking right and this place earns an "A" for their knowlegde on cooking the perfect dinner (steak).The simplicity and combination of flavors used in their dishes is very satisfiying it leaves you craving for more.

Cravings has great food and an amazing location right on Sunset Blvd. Sidewalk dining is popular in this area and all over LA. Once the stores on the blvd. close the restaurants extend tables on both sides in front of the stores for more dining on the patio. The food was very good. Our waiter was good, not great. The hostess was very friendly though. I would definitely recommend anyone to eat here. I saw Raven Symone a couple days before I ate here nearby at a small boutique. The hostess told me that Kanye West ate there not too long ago too! A great place to eat and soak in LA!

The food is good here, but not great. If you sit inside and away from the street it's actually pretty quiet. I went here for desert recently though, and the waiter took 20 minutes from the time he picked up our check to the time he returned it to us...and it wasn't even that busy.

Not even that expensive- like $30 for a full dinner. Now we can talk about the food! It's amazing! I've had the chicken curry dish and it is wonderful! I litteraly am craving it now while writing this review. They have a great selection of deserts but we were headed to a play after so we didn't have time to indulge.

After reading all of the great reviews, we figured this would be the next restaurant to try. Unfortunately, it did little to live up to our expectations. Perhaps we had a new server, or perhaps something was just off. Regardless, our server did not even visit our table until we had ample time to select our drinks, appetizers, and entrees - we felt completely neglected. When ordering the seared tuna, I was asked how I wanted it prepared. As I had ordered SEARED tuna, I asked for it to be seared. The server proceeded to ask if I wanted it rare, medium rare, etc. Not wanting her to mess up my food, I kindly responded that medium-rare would be fine, but thinking to myself that as a server, she should be well-versed on the meaning of seared. Not to mention that the mashed potatoes were cold. Go if you must, but if you have another option, eat there first.

I have been driving by for years, and I finally went to Cravings this weekend, and I have to say , I loved it! Everything was so fresh, and every dish had so much flavor. And I loved that my sandwich came with cucumber and tomato salad (the best!) instead of standard boring, greasy fries.
The service was good, too.
Cravings is on the top of my list.

I went here for lunch recently and really enjoyed myself. They have small plates, almost like tapas, that are the perfect amount for lunch. I had the vegetables and the eggplant, and both were lovely. The only qualm I had was the amount of time it took for our food to arrive...I didn't feel it ought to have taken as long as it did. However, it's great to sit outside and people watch on Sunset and I am sure it's nice inside to watch the sunset! :) I'd definitely go back.

Hosted our monthly dinner club there with 10 girls. The staff was amazing and they are really flexible with the menu in terms of substitutions. Highly reccommend this place for group, romantic dinner or casual dining.

I've eaten here a handful of times and every time it's not fabulous. After hearing how great the sesame seed chicken salad was i tried it and while it wasnt horrible, it wasnt worth writing home about. The outdoor patio area is nice, but be prepared for lots of flies hovering around your plates - gross!! Actually, the last time I ate there we had the steamed mussels in some broth and that was really good. So yeh, it's sort of hit-and-miss here, but more miss. The only reason I've come back so often is because I get invited.. i wouldn't recommend it here.

Cravings in the Sunset Plaza area of the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood leaves me craving something. Unfortunately it's not their food. I'm not saying it's bad, please don't get me wrong, but for the price and the location, I'd expected something great. Instead, I got standard italian food. People watching adds to the meal, but never makes up for it. Overall, unimpressed.

My boss and I decided to come here for our last lunch together... One thing I have to say is their complementary focaccia bread is quite delicious, and I think we would have just filled ourselves with it if our main dish didn't come. We both ordered the linguini with clams... I love both clams and garlic, so it couldn't really go wrong. And we dined in the front patio, so it's pretty nice eating while people-watching (or car-watching) on Sunset Blvd.

My girlfriend and I really enjoyed this place. The outdoor patio had a relaxing Mediterranean feel and the food was great. We tried their new small plate menu, the Kofte meatballs were delicious and we especially liked the feta & watermelon salad. This place is pefect for having a drink and people watching on Sunset. The best part of all was the service. Our waiter was very attentive and made suggestions we appreciated-- It was a refreshing change to get friendly service in LA. Definitely recommended!

Another LA staple for whenever I'm in town. While I'm not as familiar with many restaurants on Sunset, this one has brought me back several times in the last year. The lemon arugula salad with shaved parmaesan reggiano is the main reason. This might be the best salad I've ever tried. I also recommend their friend chicken with honey pecan glaze. Not what you might expect, but it is very, very good! The smoking can be a pain to deal with, but deal with it up for an hour and enjoy the food and ambience.

I enjoy this restaurant a lot. I love the black peppercorn steak and the homemade chicken soup. The service is prompt and personable. I do have a problem with the smoking being asthmatic, but the restaurant does not pretend to be smoke free. Also there is a large outdoor seating area with many places to sit where there is no smoking. I like coming here with family and it's one of those LA experiences that I would bring out of town guests to. The street scene is entertainment in itself.

i ate here on a weekday lunch. the pretty hostess was talking to the bartendar, and took me 10 min to be seated when they were nearly empty. (at 12 noon) felt like leaving at that moment. my waiter was prompted and better trained. the pasta was good, but nothing inspiring. will I return? maybe. but there are two great cafe across the street, so depends on if I want to cross the street or not.

a great place to eat lunch at a great location- right on sunset! the service is very accomodating and friendly, and the ambience is just right for a nice meal. the spicy calamari ceasar salad with feta and sundried tomatoes is to die for!

Do not be fool by its looks. Craving has a very romantic and private vibe, but the cost of the food is over priced. I order one eggplant proscuitto for $9 and i get tiny 2 inch size eggplant roll ups; four bites and its gone. caprese appetizer, $12, just 6 tomatoe slices with cheese. tiny side portions with average dishes. my baby lamb, 6 bite size lamb rack with french fries and 1 whole tomatoe for $25. the restaurant do carry a great vibe, but the food doesn't seem to fit the cost. a great hang out, if only the cost was a little lower.

I visit 12 times a year and this has become a staple for me. I've seen the best restaurants have an off night before, so take the people who don't enjoy their experience here with a grain of salt. Great food, great wine list, great people, no downside...
I'm back in town and I can't think of anywhere else that I can go at the last second on a Friday night that will satisfy me. Maybe we should keep it more of a secret.

I'm back in town and I can't think of anywhere else that I can go at the last second on a Friday night that will satisfy me. Maybe we should keep it more of a secret.

Pros: Service, Food, Reservations

Cons: ???

I being there a couple of times. The staff is very friendly and the food is great. I really have no complains. Note: Within March '06 they are renovating the back, so it would not be the greatest place to bring your "first date" during the day. At night, they have candles, heatears, etc. good wine too.

The place is ok, the food is good..nothing extraordinary though..They attract many tourists which is great because tourists bring money and make the place more lively...the fact that they allow smoking is ok for me even if I'm not a smoker because it makes this place have a more European feeling to it which means..freedom to do what you like!!!Go there for brunch or desserts!

The food is good and reasonably priced, decent wine list, but 90% of seating is outdoor, along sidewalk on Sunset blvd. They allow smoking. We sat next to a couple and thier smoke kept blowing in our faces. We kindly asked if they would stop, but they refused and wanted to debate smokers rights. I told them it was really rude, that this was a restaurant and people pay a lot of money to enjoy thier food. Next time i'll leave without paying. If the management wants a nightclub they should open one. Many other choices on the Sunset strip have better ambiance and food.

While in the area my husband and I were able to book early (8ish) dinner reservations at the last minute. The service was welcoming... not at all haughty L.A. We thouroughly enjoyed our dinners... I had chicken with a phenomenal sauce and my husband had salmon with equally tasty sauce. We sat in the front patio, it was raining but we still enjoyed dinning outside. We certainly will return when we are in the are again!

I've been going to this place for the last 15 years. This is one of the best places on Sunset Strip for the food and people watching. Great food: pastas, chicken, BBQ pizza, lamb, etc. Ambience and service is always tops. Sunday Brunch is very good.

We went there for lunch on a Friday and were extremely disappointed. My girlfriend got a cob salad that used iceberg lettuce that was yellowed. I got a hamburger that was a dry tasteless mass sandwiched between a stale crumbly role. We expected much more given the prices and location. The service was also horrible. We waited 20 minutes for 3 small, stale rolls.
