We finally got to the Wellington Room recently to take advantage of their restaurant week fare. We try to support the local businesses every year, but we have found many of the menus to be nothing we would like. Everything about the Wellington Room was perfect! The room is small and eclectic, but bright and charming in the early evening... More

Friendly and attentive servers, delicious meal made with thought and care (and brought to our table by the chef himself), beautiful waterfront view. Tasteful and cozy atmosphere. The great staff also had a hand-written birthday note and decorations ready at our table for my boyfriend's birthday. Would highly recommend for a memorable evening! Thank you to all at The Wellington... More

We received a gift certificate for Christmas and visited the Wellington Room after one of the many snowstorms this season has heaped upon us. It was a pleasure to find the valet service across the street, at a wonderful price! We climbed the stairs and entered the cozy dining room and were greeted pleasantly. Our table was at the window,... More

Small hidden gem in Portsmouth. This restaurant is locally sourced and often changes it's menu to provide fresh dishes with in season ingredients. Crab cake appetizers were fantastic with three delicious sauces. Our group tried the lamb, the beef, the scallops and pasta dishes and all were well presented and delicious. The restaurant overlooks tug boat ally so ask for... More

We had a group of 11, which essentially took up half of this tiny restaurant but they were very accommodating. The food was innovative and nicely served and everyone seemed to enjoy their meals - especially the scallops! Dietary restrictions for some were met with no concern by the staff and they went out of their way to make adjustments.... More

Small cozy dining room with very attentive staff and delicious food. Definitely worth a stop. Our party of four had all different menu items which all were cooked to perfection!

The Wellington Room is one of Portsmouth's hidden dining gems. Its hidden because you sort of have to know where it is and even then it can be confusing finding the right stair case up to the dining room. Once inside though you will get a fabulous meal, a great view of the harbor and attentive service. The only drawback... More

Outstanding meal! Six of us went for Restaurant Week. Our table was waiting for us at 8pm as promised. Service was excellent - friendly, not fussy, but professional and informed. At other venues during Restaurant Week, it has not been unheard of for everything to be a bit "less" than what you would expect during a normal service, but here... More

While there are a number of good restaurants in Portsmouth, when my wife and I visit from MA (which is fairly often) we usually make it a point to go to the Wellington Room. The place is cozy, the food has always been terrific, and Karen is a great host. While the wine list is limited, there are some good... More

Had a very special dinner tonight. In addition to the couple next to us getting engaged, and it was also my birthday. Thanks to TripAdvisor and Yelp, we chose the Wellington Room and could not be more pleased. We had the mussels to start (tender and tasty), I had the seafood bouillabaisse and my husband had the Filet Mignon. The... More
