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

We had high expectations, but the food, while good, was nothing special. The atmosphere was tight, but if the food had made up for it, I wouldn't mention it.

The place is small in size but absolutely huge in taste. went with my wife and we tried the appetizers, main dish as well as the dessert and they were all amazing. The service was also excellent. One of the best places we have ever been to. Truly highly recommended!

My husband set up my birthday dinner here and we were given the nicest table with a view of the Piscataqua River, the famous Portsmouth tugboats and the bridges. The staff put out some party favors and a personalized birthday card. It was so sweet- and oddly there was a family from Germany celebrating a birthday too. We found that... More

The Wellington Room is a wonderful restaurant. My wife and I ate here during our honeymoon, and really loved the place. It is a little small and can feel a bit cramped at first, but the atmosphere is romantic and eventually it felt more spacious than when we first sat down. Each table has unique table settings, so you won't... More

My husband and I enjoyed our anniversary dinner at The Wellington Room this summer and it was fantastic! The restaurant is small and intimate so definitely make reservations. Great view of the harbor. We both had the Beef Wellington (ok, reason being we love the show Hells Kitchen and had never had one before and they looked so good!). Friday... More

We got married on a sailboat and then had dinner for nine folks at the Wellington room. The staff was very welcoming and accommodating. The food was excellent and we really felt like we made a great choice in picking this restaurant. The only negative is that we were told when we booked our reservation back in April that we... More
