First time visitor. After a Yelp review we found it impossible to pass up. Not disappointed with the meal at all. The service was superb. The only disappointment was the wait for the food. Apparently our wait staff failed to tell us that the Pork Wellington would take a little time, resulting in two of our group receiving less that... More

I ate at the Savory Square Bistro last week, again. This place is always creative with their offerings....and not weird or bizarre....just a wonderful new take on a favorite. Everything tastes so fresh....and the presentation is something you just want to stare at before you dive in. The wait staff is always cheerful and engaging....and the wine selections are great...

We have been here several times and the food is consistently good. The quality is what we have come to expect from high end restaurants in major cities around the world. (We did not expect to find this quality in Hampton, NH. The service is great and you can choose to eat in the lounge area or in the formal... More

We were about to be seated in the dining room but looked into the bar area and picked a... More

Been here many times and it never fails. Very good food. Very tasteful atmosphere. Pick between the bar side or the dining room.

With every bite of each food selection we tasted came an OMG. I am convinced that the head chef here has sold his soul to the devil... the food here is that good. Don't hesitate. Food this good should be illegal.

Hidden behind the bandstand in the center of town is this small French restaurant. A little pricy with not overly generous portions as with most fine French restaurants. Most of the clientele seemed to be regulars and every one new each other. We felt like the strangers that we in fact were. That being said, the service and food was... More

Intimate, small bistro with good food. The rosemary infused olive oil and warm breads start you off. You can't go wrong with the fish chowder and fish selections are cooked to perfection and served up beautifully. Scallops are tender and succulent. Desserts are presented attractively but the main courses are the stars of the menu.

We had discovered this little hide away place on a trip this past June. I went with my son and my husband and enjoyed the food very much. While on vacation in August, my husband and I decided we wanted to go back as we enjoyed our first visit so much. We were not disappointed. The waiters and waitresses were... More
