It's all TRUE!

We had dinner last night and the food was EXCELLENT! First off, DO make reservations...we did, and early, and the tables were full when we arrived. It is a very small restaurant. I agree with the earlier reviews that there is a "musty" smell.....We sat by a window, and I think it's the... read more

We ate there last week and it was fantastic! You pull up and the first thing you see is a small garden under the windows with herbs growing in it. Yes, they grow their own herbs! The restaurant is small and the attention is enormous. The server and the maître d’ were both very solicitous. The food is marvelous. The... More

I find this restaurant on-line while I was searching for a decent restaurant near Hampton Beach. Savory Square Bistro far passed my expectations of a decent place to eat. Although at first we were both disappointed that the Oysters were sold out as both of us were looking forward to ordering a dozen the food to follow soon made up... More

We were 6 girlfriends, in our 50's, getting together to celebrate a birthday dinner. Cocktail orders were taken, and we settled back for a leisurely meal. Creative cocktails were absolutely delicious. I had a ginger pear martini that was spot on! For entrees we had a variety of items from the menu, ranging from seafood-steak-chicken, and everyone was thrilled with... More

We had the pleasure of celebrating our anniversary at this lovely restaurant. We arrived a bit early but we were seated right away. The hostess was friendly as was the waitress. We ordered appetizers and entrees, all of which were delicious. The duck was tasty and tender, the steak scampi was too. Our appetizers were delicious and very filling. We... More

This was my third visit to Savory Square Bistro, my first time in the dining area. The first two visits were dining in the bar area and I attributed the slow service and the omission of what was on special to being part of the fact that there appeared to be understaffing of the area. The food was not outstanding,... More

This restaurant was a good choice for our last evening before flying home. Delicious food, innovative food. Excellent service. Just a lovely experience. The lavender and vanilla creme brulee was to die for.

We were going on a diet this Monday coming up so we wanted a really good meal to take us to that point. We were going up to NH so I looked on Trip Advisor to see what was recommended. Savory Square was listed as #1 out of 105 restaurants in Hampton, NH. Well, you can believe we decided on... More

Great service, nice menu and nice presentation. We started with the antipasto cheese and meat board and it was delicious. I order the Sea bass ratatouille and the fish was Incredible! Perfectly cook and tasty. The disappointment was the risotto. The taste was nice but not warm enough and a little bit too cook. For this type of restaurant it... More
