Chef David was formally trained for three years in a French culinary school. He has won awards as a pastry chef and has worked with some of the most notable chefs and in awarded restaurants in France before starting his own restaurant. He has brought some of his signature dishes to the new menu at Krave Restaurant. The infusion of French and American cuisine means that guests will have more to choose from than ever.
While Chef David prepares your food in the kitchen, his wife, Delphine, and Krissy take care of everything else so that you can thoroughly enjoy your evening wit
Our meals were delicious. The hostess/server was amiable, competent and attentive. My wife's dietary preferences were easily, nicely accommodated and her birthday was tastefully acknowledged.
The only suggestion would be to have them stagger their reservation times so guests arrive at different times so as not to put too much pressure on the chefs. the wait time between placing an order and receiving your meal seemed a bit too long. Can't wait to go back.
We love our new found restaurant!
Great food with intimate dinning
Absolutely fabulous little intimate Authentic French restaurant!! Superb!!!!
Krave is our best find in more than 6 months. We wanted fine dining French restaurant for New Year's Eve. PERFECT! The food was EXCELLENT. Creative menu, different ( pleased my wife) Enough dishes that I could understand and enjoy (simple taste). My wife had scallops in a light white sauce as an appetizer which she insisted was so terrific that she argued for licking the plate as socially appropriate. I had a coconut shrimp appetizer that was so much better than any coconut shrimp dish I have ever had that it is not fair for them to share the name. She had the Cobia and I had pork tenderloin with a mushroom sauce that affirmed my wife's feelings about not leaving any sauce remaining on the plate. The portions were large and the price very reasonable for the quality. The service was excellent. Delphine the French wife of the French chef handles the front of the very small and lovely appointed restaurant. There are only about 10 tables and the reservations are appear to be staggered to enhance the quality of the service. Even on NYE, there were no gaps in service and the food was served hot.
Honestly I cannot say enough about this restaurant. If you do not try it you are really, really missing out on a wonderful dining experience!
Enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Krave Restaurant tonight. The home made foie gras was very tasty and well accompanied with fig bread. Then I enjoyed the duck breast which was very well cooked. Our party enjoyed all the dishes and a good assortment of wine. Definitely a place to recommend.
Wonderful meal. Authentic expertly prepared French cuisine. Great service. Not fussy. We highly recommend this restaurant.
The food and the service were both great at Krave. We had a small group of 5 and had a good time. Two minor "criticisms"....a) it was a bit stuffy in the resturant. Its a small space with no air flow b) the menu was a bit limited. I understand the kitchen staff is only a staff of one but i think a few more options may be well received.
Overall though, we really liked the food, the service and wine were great and we will be back.
Krave is a wonderful hidden gem not to be missed. We celebrated Christmas here, food and service is really wonderful. The owners are charming and attentive. Don’t be fooled by location or storefront, best food in The Jupiter area by far. Very intimate, cozy so perfect for many occasions. Thank you!!!
Our dinner at Krave was surprisingly great. I have been to many French restaurants that substitute too much butter for sophistication and subtlety. Not at Krave. The food was rich, yet balanced. The food was distinguished, without being fussy. And the owners were delightful.
Outstanding! This restaurant offers an intimate, sophisticated and friendly atmosphere combined with a menu offering creative sumptuous dishes. We had the caesar salad with a light garlic dressing that was not overwhelming as many salads are, and lamb shanks that melted in your mouth with a bed of carrots that complimented the lamb. Our dessert was a tarte normande that had a perfect crust filled with apples and seasonings. Our cabernet was rich yet smooth rounding off a perfect meal. Finally the bill was quite reasonable for the quality of food and service. If you like true French cuisine, Krave is a restaurant for you.
This is a special gem in Tequesta. One of our favorites for sure. Amazing food, intimate atmosphere and a wonderful overall experience Love Krave
An authentic French Restaurant. The owner is the chef and his wife is everywhere but the kitchen, making sure the customers are happy and properly attended. At the south end of the mall. A palm tree hides the name of the restaurant. Great experience. Corkage free on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. A gastronomic gem
Excellent fine dining
The Restaurant is run by a charming young French couple. The food was very good, well spiced and generous. The service was excellent and they had a well priced wine menu. I would highly recommend this restaurant. One draw back is the location in an ugly strip mall and the decor of the restaurant could use some help. But well worth a visit
a delightful experience. like being in a restaurant in France.
Daphne and David the purple from Burgundy who own the restaurant are a very welcome addition to the area dining scene. The restaurant is a weekly stop for us and this past week we found 8 of our neighbors there, all of whom were delighted with their meals and were ready to return. My favorite fish is the cobia with the puttanesca sauce, a thick piece of fish with a delicious sauce.
Food was very good but the service outstanding. It gets noisy but we arrived early so not too bad. They have some 1/2 booths where the tables are beyond tiny- we avoided those. We would go back. Portions were ample and creative.
A quaint French Bistro in a strip mall! Food was delicious and good service. Beef tenderloin was moist and the cobia fresh. The fruit nougat dessert was creative and unique. A taste of Burgundy in Tequesta.
We crave for more Krave! The hostess/waitress who may have been the owner was charming. I ate the special mahi which was delectable and an adequate portion even for my copious appetite. My wife had the tortelinni appetizer which burst with flavor. The tornadoes of beef was perfectly prepared and as fine a piece of similar meat as we have ever enjoyed and we have frequented the finest New York steakhouses.
Perhaps the best part of the dinner was the desert namely the frozen nouguet which we shared with a perfectly blended espresso. Highly recomended!!
Just when I thought it could not get any better, sweet breads!! Most certainly this is not a dish for everyone, but when they are prepared well they are sublime. And that’s how it was at Krave the other night.
I have no idea how David and Delphine do it, but Krave is still, even after over a year, far and away the best restaurant around.
People are figuring this out. It was really busy the night we were there. So my dining tip is to make reservations in advance, so you won’t lose out on a great evening.
This restaurant is wonderful. The food was amazing and the service was outstanding As a family owned restaurant they make you feel right at home. Highly recommend this restaurant.
One of our favorite places to go when in the mood to splurge
Delphine and David are doing a fantastic job with Krave
The food is innovative French themed cooking using good American ingredients, local sometimes such as the excellent Cobia with bounteous perfectly done vegetable. Prices for both wine and food are very reasonable; there is no liquor. It is a husband and wife run labor of love with Daphne the server and David the chef. We are fortunate that they moved here instead of continuing to operate their Burgundy restaurant in France.
Fantastic food and service in this hidden gem! We will definitely return!
Classic French fare. The escargot were delicious for appetizers. The lamb shank was well prepared. Tournedos was excellent as well. Chocolate dessert topped off the dinner! Very good service. Enjoyed the evening.
Awesome French cuisine, great wines and impeccable service! Krave is a hidden gem!
Perfect for family dinner. Delicious and great service.
Truly exceptional French cuisine done really cleanly!
Husband and wife team, wonderful service and super selection and flavors
we needed somewhere special for Thanksgiving and we all fave thanks that we found Krave!!
Tried Krave for our anniversary. It was perfect. Very intimate atmosphere. Excellent French cuisine.
Krave was a delightful surprise in a strip mall storefront. David’s in the kitchen sending out plates of delectable complex French cooking. Delphine who works the front seems to be doing three things at once but is attentive and gracious and always had time for a bit of small talk. We highly recommend Krave!!!
We love this restaurant, but unfortunately for us and happily for the owners, every table was taken and our experience suffered. It was noisier than usual and the table next to us was particularly loud. We always have loved this restaurant because it combines outstanding food with an elegant ambience. This particular evening it wasn’t so elegant, but we still really enjoyed the food and the service, and we love the owner, who comes to say hello and is particularly charming.
Somehow, in Tequesta Florida we are lucky enough to be the place where David and Delphine Hoquet, the new owners of Krave, decided to move their restaurant from France.
Everything about an evening at Krave is excellent and creative, but how can this be? Hard work: David makes EVERYTHING, from appetizers to deserts; French "standards", including Foie Gras and duck, are wonderful. And there are weekly specials too, such as the Hog Snapper we enjoyed the other night.
Delphine greets you personally and, with her lovely French accent, makes you feel like you are enjoying an evening in Macon.
The ambience is cozy and, despite its location in a strip mall, Krave takes you to a place that is quiet, personal, and special. Wines are varied and not overly priced. This is our favorite restaurant in all of South Florida.
The food was amazing and the service was wonderful. Fabulous husband and wife team!
Love, love, love Krave and Delphina is a wonderful hostess...never met the chef, her husband, but we love his cooking and display of food!
Four people dined on snapper, cobia, and filet of steak. Everyone was pleased. The vegetable with the cobia was delicious, and the scalloped potatoes with the filet were a hit.
If I could give it six stars I would. I felt like I was in France
Pork loin great. Snapper not so much
An unexpected experience in a small beach town. Exceptional dining and service....will be back!
