Great food and atmosphere

Food is excellent - they had a strange liquor license last time I was there that only allowed beer and sweet infused drinks (?) In any case, I believe they have a full liquor license now, just haven't had the chance to get back there in a while - too many great restaurants in Amesbury... read more

I went to Crave last Saturday around 530. When you walk in, you are greeted by smiling staff and attentive waitresses. The ambiance of the restaurant is romantic, elegant, and comfortable. It's a very small restaurant though, and they do not accept phone reservations. You need to make sure you get there early. For my appetizer I got the PEI... More

Went to Crave on a recent Friday night and was impressed. We were greeted by the owner who was very friendly and took the time to go over the entire menu with me and explain what was an option for me since I have celiac disease. We waited about 30 minutes for our table and while we were waiting we... More

My wife and I live in the area and for some reason this was the first time we have tried Crave. We sat at the bar and started with three appetizers ...the wings (crispy with an outstanding bbq sauce) crispy tomatoes with locally made mozzarella cheese and the lobster and corn flatbread...we usually will sample a lot from new restaurants...

We have eaten here a number of times. The food is always delicious. We really enjoy the oyster appetizer. Service is good, we like the nice small atmosphere.

After a difficult winter here in MA, we ventured out on our first warm day. Sean the owner, greeted us so warmly having not been for a while, due to cold. What I love about Crave, is they are so consistent and do not try to over do it. The menu has just the right amount of items, which are... More

Just went to Crave after a long hiatus (four years), we have never been impressed but we were pleasantly surprised by our last visit. The food was very good, the portion sizes were more than adequate and it was flavorful. The staff was very friendly. My only complaint is that it smelled like they need to change the oil in... More

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.
