The events have passed for this season, but the parings on the WIne Dinners as presented by the staff are amazing.

Just the perfect spot for a glass of wine and some bread and cheese on a hot day. Sat outside in beautiful weather and enjoyed the State street ambience. Helpful staff, fresh baked bread and a very nice cheese selection.

Soft shell crab special was excellent! The drinks were generous and well done. The tuna dish had a special sauce that gave a very interesting flavor. I did not care for the octopus appetizer, it was much too dry. Carrot soup was excellent. Should have...More

I don't know if the restaurant is open for Easter. As for nut allergies, I think the kitchen would be very attentive to any special requests or needs. There were not any dishes that I remember having peanuts. Almonds... More

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.
