Crave has an upscale bar side to the restaurant and has a small but delicious bar menu. We like it best for meeting friends for drinks and enjoying the atmosphere. The burger is fantastic!

I love the food and the atmosphere. Small menu, great dishes. The new bar area is really beautiful. I'm in love with the tartare and the seared scallops and I like the way they serve the food. It feels really elegant and upscale, but not pretentious. You can wear your jeans.

My girlfriend and i swung in for a drink and some apps. We sat in the bar room. The beer and wine list was pretty good and the food was great as well. Prices are on the higher end of the scale we enjoyed the atmosphere and service.

This restaurant is a wonderful find! Have been there several times now, and the food had always been top notch! Good service and atmosphere, surpasses anything the nearby city of Newburyport has to offer in the way of dinning. Reasonable prices and very good food!!👍

I was hoping for a great date night spot but it's very loud and sports bar atmosphere were disappointing. Food was good but not the swanky little night spot I expected

We ate in the bar. The menu is limited, but the qualty of the food is excellent. I had the mac n cheese. It was very rich and well done. There are many beers on tap and bottled choices too. Overall it was very pleasant and we would go again

We are frequent customers at Crave. The food is great and consistent. The staff is very friendly and personable. We love going there and have never been disappointed. Reservations are recommended if you don't want a 1 or 2 hour wait on the weekends.

Thank Michael S
