Our first experience at Crave was outstanding. We were seated right away and the owner came over to talk to us. The seafood pasta was outstanding as was the mussels. Service was friendly and the portions were just right. Crave is a great addition to downtown Amesbury.

We started with the goat cheese flatbread and the beef tartar. The former was nice, but the goat cheese was on the mild side [I like goat cheese.] The tartar was recommended by our server. We found it tasteless – and politely told him so. Although certainly not required, he deducted from bill. A sure sign that they care about... More

We tried this place out for the first time for a special occasiona meal. for a Friday night it was not crowded, which normally would be a red flag for us, but we stayed and were glad we did. The wait staff was excellent and very knowledgable. She helped us pick from their interesting menu pointing out that some of... More

The food is delicious at "The Crave". Tuesday nights offer a great culinary deal...Two persons can order off a special menu and, for a total of $60, you can share a bottle of wine, each orders either a garden salad or a Caesar salad, each orders a delicious entree, and you share a dessert. By the way, our table of... More

We had just finished tasting wines at Jewel Town Winery and turned onto High Street to see the sign for Wolf Meadow Farm when I suggested to my wife that we should stop into a cute bistro I had noticed when I last visited Amesbury for a cocktail and an appetizer. Walking into the bar area through the back door,... More

Was up in the Salisbury Beach, Ma. area for the weekend, photographing the Snowy Owl. Boked a room in Amesbury and came over here from Newburyport, Ma. at the end of a very long day, tired and hungry. Having never been to the area, had to rely on the internet reviews and Trip Advisor top reviews. Went the #1 restaurant... More

I don't usually order haddock when I'm at a restaurant. I'm very fussy when it comes to seafood, especially haddock. I'd rather buy it at the fish market and cook it at home. The haddock sandwich at Crave, is without a doubt, one of the best -if not the best- fried haddock I've had on a long, long time. The... More

We go back to Crave whenever we can. The food is always great, and the service and atmosphere are friendly. We especially enjoy the wine dinner for two on Tuesdays.

Their tuna tartar as an appetizer is wonderful and their salmon is the best. I would recommend both of those. Their steak is also excellent. You can't go wrong at this restaurant.
