My favorite restaurant

I feel like I'm in NYC whenever we go to Anneka Jans. The atmosphere is somewhat sophisticated but also casual. Its like a neighborhoods restaurant that is the best in the neighborhood and people from all over are coming to eat here and with good reason.. The food is outstanding. It seems that... read more

Maybe because it was a Sunday. maybe because the kitchen was having a bad day, but the food was really poor. The appetizers were overcooked and dried out; a warning we didn't heed. The duck entree was partially cooked and bland, devoid of sauce and taste. The once exquisite mussels entree of white wine, saffron, pancetta, and blue cheese finished... More

Was not disappointed: food was good, but it does not stand out in my standard. Service was proper. Reservation worked fine.

My husband courted me on six continents and then we bought a home in Kittery Maine and found Anneke Jans. So glad to have a place like this in our home town.....we enjoy seeking out good restaurants when we travel, and as the title says, this place makes the grade and more. We don't feel like we need to go... More

We went to Anneka Jans for a special anniversary dinner two years ago. The meal is still memorable and we look forward to returning there when we are in the area again. The service was excellent, the food was amazing. It was expensive, but worth the money. Hint: make a reservation - we did are were glad we had. This... More

Situated on a charming New England square, this beautiful, upscale restaurant has an open kitchen concept. But the kitchen counter is so high, all we see are the heads of the chefs, sometimes seated, looking out at the customers. When the chefs are at work, they are visible only from mid-arm, up; so we don’t really see them preparing the... More

This place has been on my list to try for a couple years. Finally made it last night. What a great place in a very cute little area of town. Nice bar, very friendly staff, outstanding food. The bread, arugula salad, asparagus soup, salmon and hake were all fantastic – as well as perfectly portion and beautifully presented. Big fans.... More

We walked over to this restaurant from Portsmouth and are we glad we did! When I made the reservation I told them we were celebrating an anniversary. They gave us a very quiet table and congratulated us when we walked in. Our waiter was very attentive but not intrusive. The blue cheese soufflé and beet salad were excellent. The salmon... More

It was the last night of Restaurant week and we had the 3 course meal, $29,95. My friend ordered a vodka martini, which was one of the worst she had ever had, bartender added more vodka, my scotch on ice had water added. We both had the blue cheese soufflé with salad greens on the side, very good. My friend... More
