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.

It was our first time dining at Crave and certainly won't be our last. We love the farm to table concept and at Crave you could taste the freshness! Loved the attention to detail the Chef shows with every dish! The scallops are to die for! I really enjoyed the bed of creamed corn they were presented on. My husband... More

My new favorite place in Amesbury. It was our first visit and will not be the last!! We were greeted with a warm welcome at the door from the hostess and Proprietor, Sean. We were seated in a corner table with a perfect view of the entire small but cozy restaurant. It was a Tuesday night and every other seat... More

We had a nice time at this wonderful little restaurant. Two of us had caesar salads which were delicious. I had the chicken in parmesan polenta which was tasty with a wilted spinach side. My son has a burger and my husband had the haddock sandwich. All were good. The space was cozy and quiet with plenty of parking outside... More

Loved the local foods and twists on standard fare -- whoever thought of lightly frying the tomatoes for the Caprese is brilliant, and all the main dishes were flavorful and luscious (lobster and scallop fettuccine with plenty of lobster broth to lighten the sauce; fantastically smooth and fresh spinach-stuffed cod; a whole line of plump scallops of butter consistency wrapped...

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
