For many reasons I can't explain, this was one of the nicest, most relaxed, pleasurable dining experiences I've had in a very, long, time! Craig (spelling unsure) was our waiter last night. Service was nearly perfect and we had cocktails before our meal, and wine with dinner. Both drinks were well prepared and exactly what I expected. We ordered the... More

Delicious, fresh, perfectly prepared Seafood Port Fino, a regular menu item, and a New Orleans Gumbo special. We were warmly greeted at the door, our server was considerate and friendly, and the cozy restaurant and bar were comfortable. All of the seafood was perfectly cooked and super fresh and our calamari appetizer, entrees, and creme brûlée dessert reflected great attention... More

Yes, a hidden gem worth the effort. The owner(s) captured the feeling of a French Bistro with European flair. The atmosphere was chic, comfortable, and cozy, with only about 10-12 tables. Beautifully decorated interior. I had the Steak & Shrimp Blue Grass, with tenderloin medallions, mushrooms, and a delicate sauce on the grilled shrimp. My wife had the Seafood Porto... More

Located in the depot and surrounded by quaint shops it was inviting. The plank salmon was delicious, the special Citrus salmon was nice but might have been a "Wow" if Blood oranges were used. The scallops good. The desserts were excellent. It included their "Samores" ; Flourless Chocolate Cake; and poached pear. Needs work on handicap access - going in... More

1st time at the bistro, was intrigued by all the reviews. The food spot on. From our appetizer of escargot to the steak/lobster scampi and portabella fillet mignon. The price was a little steeper than we realized even with our $25 restaurant .com certificate. Our waitress seemed new as she was unsure of a few things. The dining room itself... More

We were looking for a really good meal to share with really good friends and were steered here from our BnB. We were not disappointed. Service was pleasant and the space was surprisingly intimate, giving the feel of an upscale restaurant using color and lighting. All of the food was excellent, from the appetizers to the varied and wonderful entrees.... More

We visited Savory Square Bistro for a late quiet dinner for two after our daytime wedding reception, at the suggestion of the owner of our b & b. She had made the reservation for us, so we just arrived at the appointed time. As soon as we entered, the host graciously greeted us with congratulations, and showed us to a... More

We live in Hampton and have dined it here several times. It was our favorite restaurant until our last visit. Our waitress had a schtick more in keeping with a highway truck stop than what is intended to be a bistro. She really meant no ill, but I found her to be off putting,as did my wife. After being called... More

Went here recently for girls night out. The food was okay for the price we paid. They were offering a dinner special that included app, dinner, dessert and a bottle of wine. Had we paid regular price for the same meal, would have been disappointed. The more you pay, the more you expect. One meal came out cold. Desserts were... More

Got a Restaurant.com coupon and made an early (5PM) reservation, it wasn't too busy when we got there. We were told upon getting seated that their menu is changing on Tuesday and the fact that it was Saturday there were a few things that were no longer available that were still on the menu, not a big deal. We ordered... More
