Great bar for a drink & dinner

The bar has a fun list of cocktail specials and a great food menu. I suggest trying the risotto - the best I have found in the area.

Service was very good. I missed the name of the hostess, but she was fully involved. Waitress Cat was excellent. Food is very good, try the Tuscan Flatbread. Wow! That night they had a garlic, honey butter for the bread. I'd suggest serving 4 rolls not just two. No way after tasting that butter you'd have just 1 roll. Entrée... More

Thank you so much for the great review RCCNH and we're very appreciative that you took the time to write it. We agree, Kat is wonderful and we'll be sure to pass along the praise. The honey butter is made in-house and is very difficult to stop at just one. Just let us know next time and we'll be happy... More

While early dining (5:30 on a Saturday) may not appeal to all, we are finding better service and generally a more satisfying experience than arriving at peak when everyone wants attention! Skipping lunch on Saturday afternoon also lends to appreciation of an early dinner! Savory Square Bistro is a very unassuming-looking property upon arrival; not a "glitzy" place at all.... More

We have dined here in the past and food was wonderful. However, what we expected to be an excellent News Years Dining experience was terrible. Three of our party of four spent the evening doubled over in pain in the bathroom. What was more of a disgrace is our comments about the food to the staff were dismissed (cold, tasteless,... More

Lisa, I am deeply troubled by your comments about your recent experience at my restaurant on New Years Eve. I was the host on duty that evening and as you know we were extremely busy.

My wife and I eat out several days per week and I gotta tell all that this place is one of the best if not the best restaurant on the NH Seacoast. Monday there is half price apps. Tuesday is Taco Tuesday and all Margarita's and Taco's are $5. Wednesday you have Oyster's at a $1. The food is really... More

It's really good, Paul behind the bar makes a mean cocktail and will take care of you. The food is excellent, varied and will appeal to most palates.

My wife and I had the good fortune to dine at the Savory Square Bistro. We had a late lunch and that allowed us to take advantage of the 3 Course Lunch special for an amazing $15.

We went three times. The only fun occasion was a knife handling lesson. The dinners were disappointing. Not bad, but not authentic French by any means, which is fine if they advertise accordingly.
