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

Recently we celebrated a birthday at the Wellington Room. The other reviewers are all spot on with comments about the menu (amazingly good food) and ambiance (charming and quiet) but I think they miss the personal touch provided by the house. The hostess was super helpful in making the reservation and because I called very late in the week, the... More

Warm and inviting plus delectable menu options with delicious specials in a wonderful environment. The soup, the standard fare are such a treat but explore the nightly specials, amazing and creative.

Went to the Wellington Room during restaurant week because I liked the special offerings. What a delightful surprise. Great space, small and quaint - and if you get a window seat, great view of the lovely Portsmouth harbor. But can't speak highly enough of the great food. All four of us loved our meals. The presentation was great, and marvelous... More

Never heard of the Wellington Room until I received a gift certificate. My wife and I decided to check it out Halloween night 2014. Upon arrival in the area I became concerned about parking since it was Halloween and a lot of goings on in Portsmouth...no problem, valet parking immediately across the street. Walked up one flight of stairs glimpsing... More
