Birthday dinner for my daughter

Brought the family for my daughter's 16th birthday. It was like eating at a close friend's house who happen to be excellent chefs! They decorated our table with birthday glitter, a birthday crown for her and even a card celebrating her big day. The food, service, view and celebration was beyond... read more

The Wellington Room is a charming little gem overlooking Portsmouth harbor. Literally a single room on the third floor with the kitchen partitioned off next to a small bar beside the single restroom. There are about 14 small tables, none seating more than four. The bar can seat about six people. Very good food and service for the money. The... More

What a wonderful little restaurant hidden along the Bow st. Line of eateries. The staff is exceptional and the chef's dishes are delightful.

Decent food. Not a great wine menu because of space. The food is good but $$$. There are better places to eat in this foodie town.

Great food, great service, great view! We will be back soon and also recommend it to our friends. Charming room with few tables.

Just left the Wellington Room, and gotta say, yes the reviews you are reading are true. Excellent service, comfortable, and excellent cuisine. Courses were spaced perfectly, and we never felt rushed despite Valentines Day being one of their busiest nights. I have been to some amazing restaurants all over the country, and this place gets a solid A!

If your looking for romantic intimate place to have dinner with a view to die for this is the place to go. Food was excellent and the staff couldn't be more accommodating. Place is intimately small so reservation are a must during the busy tourist season. Valet parking is a great plus since parking is lacking in Portsmouth.

Visited Portsmouth New Hampshire for first time .No pre-knowledge of cuisine or restaurant reputations. Checked local pamphlets but accepted recommendation of hotel concierge. Hostess at THE WELLINGTON ROOM most accommodating. Our table was intimate ; superlative sunset views. But , oh , the food. Matthew Sharlot created a taste - and texture rich sensation with every preparation in this understated... More

This review is way overdue. I couldn't let another day pass before giving the Wellington Room and staff the accolades they so deserve for providing a wonderful evening for my son and wife's rehearsal dinner in mid October. The restaurant was the perfect size for 26 of their best friends and family members, which might be the maximum number of... More
