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

A must try restaurant. Interesting location which adds to its charm. The food was fresh and tasty. A special treat, they serve piping hot popovers instead of bread. Service was great and definitely suggest reservations.

This was the first time I'd been to Crave, but it won't be the last! The service, atmosphere, and quality of the food and drinks were all top notch! I am partial to whiskey and bourbon, and was pleased to see they have an extensive list available. After perusing their cocktail menu, I decided to go for the maple Manhattan,... More

Great spot for a special night out with friends, or to pop in and sit at the bar. Reservations taken for parties of 6 or more. Food is fresh, tasty, and inventive, but not inaccessible. The crispy caprese app is fab! Overall I'd say you can't go wrong.
