Good Food and Decent Sized Portions

Just went to Crave after a long hiatus (four years), we have never been impressed but we were pleasantly surprised by our last visit.

We had dinner at Crave for the first time. Very warm atmosphere or maybe it was because there was a blizzard outside:) Great ambiance and our server was very nice. There were no complaints on any of the dishes served. Scallops, Fried Oysters, Beef were all excellent. We would definitely go back.

We tried this in our search for excellent food in the greater Newburyport area. What was most remarkable was that there was nothing remarkable. Kind of uninspired decor. Inside, could be any restaurant anywhere in suburban america, despite a quirky, unique location in town. Food seemed to be very standard, uninspired choices-- again, very suburban blah. An adequate but supremely... More

A rather small venue, but we timed it right and were seated immediately. The service was as good as anywhere. Started wit drinks, then a squash soup(awesome good), again, things came out reasonably timed. Just the two of us at a table that would seat six. The entrees were absolutely delicious, ample portions, and well presented.

Have eaten here several times and the food is consistently good, something to be valued since many restaurants can't seem to sustain the quality of their chefs and menus. Particular menu favorites: the smokey bourbon wings, mussels cooked in coconut red curry sauce, fresh cod sandwich and blackened salmon with soba noodles. All delicious, nice presentation. Waitstaff here is very... More

I have eaten at Craves several times and every time I have had a great experience. Reservations are not accepted unless the party is quite large so you may end up waiting because the restaurant is very popular. My only criticism is that the vegetable portions are small which I probably notice more than most people because I don't eat... More

Just finished a lovely meal. Crave doesn't take reservations for parties less than six but it is worth the wait. Not our drinks and food were extremely flavorful. I had blackened Salmon and my wife had seared Scallops. The presentations were quite attractive and the flavors were multilayered. The staff was great. The owner runs the front desk and makes...

We stopped in on a whim, hungry from a long road trip back to Philadelphia and we're so happy we did!!!! I had the hanger steak and my husband had the linguine with lobster and scallops. GREAT flavor, service and atmosphere in an adorable New England town outside Newburyport, MA.

With the exception of one meal at Crave in which a hamburger had to be sent back twice, very other time we have been to Crave has been a consistently very good experience. The food is delicious. We were especially delighted this summer with the fried tomato, mozzarella and basil pesto sauce appetizer as well as the filet with baked... More
