We had a loverly dinner at AJs. Our table was not ready despite the reservations. Management took care of the situation very professionally. Despite the fact that they were out of Fried Olives which we heard were to die for, we had a great dining experience. I have to make sure that we visit this great establishment soon.

We love this restaurant......have come here often and are never disappointed! The menu has ample variety, is small and the dishes are very creative. They change their items frequently depending on what's fresh and available. The mussels are always on the menu though and for good reason..they are GREAT. Also, the poached shrimp cocktail is wonderful. Oysters and raw clams... More

Between blizzards, we had a lovely dinner here with a polished wait staff and a relaxing time between courses. One in our party has a gluten allergy, and she was advised throughout our meal on options and substitutions that she could enjoy. The wine list is good, and decent "by the glass" options are offered. The chowder is made with... More

We ate here twice during our last visit to Portsmouth, NH. What a gem! The service is exceptional. The food is sublime. We are pretty critical of local food, and we find this endlessly delicious and interesting.

This is a really charming, comfortable, rewarding dining experience. A constantly evolving menu offers a wide array to keep all party members happy - from a dedicated carnivore to vegetarian. Reasonable wine list with some unusual selections, great vibe, incredible desserts, excellent service. Even with very quirky dietary restrictions, the kitchen accommodated without question. Always try to visit when we... More

I adore this place. I feel comfortable here and the service is always excellent. The changing menu thoughtfully features what's fresh and delicious. The drinks and wine list are solid, though not exactly an adventure. I like that it is a little off the beaten path, unless your path goes through Kittery. It's definitely worth the trip.

Our server was a cordial and animated gentleman by the name of Ken. He saw to our needs in a caring and non-hassled manner. The service was slow and relaxed, we LOVED that aspect!! We ordered two bottles of wine from the decent wine list and enjoyed the service along with the wine. The food began with oysters and fried... More

Tucked into downtown Kittery by the river, this is a lovely setting with excellent service. We had wild Maine mussels w/onions, bacon, and--the surprise and the coup--blue cheese; pasta with porcini mushrooms and aged sheep reggiano; steak with roasted and pureed roots; and flaky berry tarts w/ cream. The mussel sauce was out of this world, but the mussels were... More
