Bonjour! Located on NH's beautiful seacoast, The Bistro provides guests with a cozy and quaint but refined dining atmosphere and experience. We have a small candlelit dining room and a separate room for our lounge and antique bar which offers the full menu. The lounge consists of 16 seats at the bar or a variety of high top tables, two TV's, and a gas fireplace. Relax and enjoy our fine multi-course menu offerings in either our softly lit dining room or bistro bar. The Bistro's casual yet elegant atmosphere welcomes all who enjoy good food, good wine, and good times! Bon Appetit!

thanks to our server Kendra and her husband the chef for an amazing meal! The pork chop was the best ever, and salmon was great. The only negative is that you must dress warm in the restaurant portion of the building. Each time the door opens, you get a very cold breeze. Next time we will sit in the bar.

We have had the good fortune to eat here three times. Each time the meal has been fabulous. The wait staff is pleasant and attentive. The setting is small and favors couples and groups of four. Conversation is enjoyable in the dining room with a minimum of noise from the surroundings. The bar area is separated and our drinks have... More

Follow up to my last review. Arrived Wednesday evening around 7:30pm and parking was full, thought we wouldn't get a table, left friends in car and went into check. Bar was full, restaurants had just one couple and was empty. Okay, thought I hit the lottery, (NOT)!!! Started with Seafood Chowder, bland at best, but shrimp still had the peels... More

Savory Square is hidden away in downtown Hampton in a little plaza behind the bandstand. Very good food, lots of options. The only disappointment was the service. Our first bartender ignored us for quite awhile. Then there seemed to be too many waiters etc not knowing who was doing what. Will have to try again and see if the wait... More

Since our favorite restaurant closed a couple of years ago, this has become our new favorite for special occasions. The food is wonderful and the menu changes with the season, presumably to get the freshest local ingredients. We love the atmosphere, quiet and classy, and the tables aren't too close together ( a common gripe of ours). The restaurant is... More

I had the pleasure to enjoy the Sunday Dec. 28th cooking class. I have to admit I was blown away from the moment I arrived. I was greeted by the Chef himself at the door. Once everyone arrived the evening was laid out as to Menu, cooking tips and dinner. We then proceeded into kitchen where all the magic began.... More

We had dinner in the bar area while listening to Dave Gerard play, who is always great entertainment. Just the right volume so you could still have a conversation yet hear his great voice in the background. The bar area is small, but laid out well with a cozy nook in the back with two tables. The food was delicious... More
