Description: Where laughter is required. Jacket & tie are not. Going out with friends or a special someone means choosing a neighborly place that feels as comfortable as home, where conversation flows as easily as a smooth cabernet. Welcome to Ceia Kitchen + Bar. A new kind of nightlife in the heart of Downtown Newburyport, introducing this area"s first extended kitchen hours for later night dining or tete-a-tete cocktails with flavorful small plates. Our exposed brick interior with mellow lighting, cozy banquets and featured cocktail bar beckon even impromptu visits to this reliable neighborly eatery where singles, dates and a posse of good friends are assured of a comfortable night out with delicious food and great company. The spirit of Ceia (pr. SAY-yah) is in the translation of our name: "supper" in Portuguese, the language of one country included among the inspiring stops of our coastal European culinary repertoire.

“A jewel of Newburyport...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2013

We went to Newburyport to see the foliage. Knew nothing about the restaurant. Made reservation 30-45 minutes before showing up. The atmosphere, the menu, the food was way above our expectations. Ox Tail is a must to try.

“Disappointment”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 October 2013

Made reservations weeks in advance to go here because we liked what we saw on the menu. But we were disappointed by the food. The burger was overcooked and didn't have much flavor to it. The risotto was good, but not great. Not worth what we spend on the meal.

“High end ingredients in a great old historic building in downtown Newburyport”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 October 2013

The new location of this restaurant is fantastic for both their bar and their food. If it looks crowded on the first floor venture to the third floor bar and you will likely find a seat. The food is absolutely amazing and I highly recommend the octopus.

“Reviews brought me in”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2013

But I won't go back soon. Food was bland as was our waiter. They were not busy during our early reservation, but the attention paid to our table was minimal.

“Love eating here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 October 2013

We've been several times and it has always been delicious. Today I tried the duck crepes - wonderful. Service is great and friendly. This is one of our favorite spots.
