Very nice and cozy restaurant

Awesome view, very nice food presentation and definitely a very good chef. So far the best culinary experience in Portsmouth.

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

I have reviewed the Wellington Room before on tripadvisor and another review is called for. My wife Jocelyn and I made reservations for Wellington Room's New Year's Dinner Celebration which was a 4 course Prix Fixe Menu for $65 per person. It was money well spent for a fantastic dinner. A caveat to the reader of this review, my wife... More

This is one of my most favorite restaurants. We go there for special occasions and this New Year was great. Their martinis are fantastic almost too good. The Lobster Bisque was superb and the Duck the best. A wonderful way to start the New Year

A very fine restaurant located in the heart of Portsmouth. Elegant dining in a casual atmosphere. The Beef Wellington was great.

I chose this restaurant based on other reviews and it did not disappoint. I made a reservation about a week prior to going which I highly recommend as the restaurant is very small and the reservations fill up quickly for the weekends. Once we arrived, we were greeted by a quirky and cozy atmosphere which overlooked the water. The glasses... More
