Craig's feels like you've traveled back in time to the days of Sinatra and Monroe. The old Hollywood charm of the tables, mood lighting, decor, etc make for a beautifully unique experience, but the real stand out about this experience is the food. Expensive comfort...More

Very awesome staff and food. Loved everything including the paparazzi waiting outside. Saw a few celebs. Never a bad thing when visiting from out of town. Very happy about vegetarian/vegan options like vegan chicken parm! A+

Dark but not too dark. Banquettes cool vibe. Great food. Old school steaks and Italian but lots of vegan options. Well dressed clientele. See and be seen with front banquettes facing the entry. Well done drink menu and we did see a very famous guy
