It's many years since we were last in Portsmouth: Wow it's really changed! Bustling, vibrant and alive. Our hosts in New England invited us to the Wellington Room for a special dinner to wind up our visit.Dinner was delightful, our wine was excellent and the ambiance was perfect; overlooking the water and the bridges up river. The service was perfect... More

This place is tiny, so I highly recommend making a reservation. The tables by the window have an amazing view. The food was fantastic. I tried the fish, and my husband had the steak. Both were excellent. I also highly recommend the mushroom crepe and the chocolate mousse.

After some significant research in Portsmouth for a reception venue, we narrowed the search down to a few. After meeting with the owner, Karen, seeing the restaurant and discussing a plan, our mind was made up. Of course the ambiance and view are incredible, but that only gets a restaurant so far. I'll focus on what keeps the WR at... More

We chose this restaurant based on Trip advisor & Yelp, we we not disappointed. The waitstaff was gracious & accommodating. The food was prepared perfectly as ordered. We had a reservation for an anniversary dinner & requested a window as the restaurant is on the second floor with a spectacular view of the river/harbor area. We were taken to a... More

I consulted TA prior to selecting the Wellington Room as a gift for my mother's birthday. There are many good reviews of the restaurant and I was confident that they would put on a good show. Wrong. From what I'm told the female owner blatantly patronized my mom and her husband when they asked if they could be seated minutes... More

We are a local customer and have returned to the Wellington Room time and time again. This is our go-to restaurant when we want an excellent meal and want to impress our friends and family with the beautiful views. All the food is fabulous but be sure to get the Gnocchi appetizer. It's a little bit of heaven in your... More

We had dinner at the Wellington room recently for my sons college graduation. There were 6 of us. They had a card at the table to congratulate him. Our meals were delicious. I had filet mignon which was excellent. We had a vegetarian in the group and there was a great couscous dish that she enjoyed. It's a smaller room... More

This was our first visit to Wellington Room, and it was during restaurant week. I had heard it was an intimate room, but I was not prepared for how really small this is. The fact that they can stay in business, very successfully, with so few tables speaks to the high quality of the food and service. We had a... More

We went for a birthday and were treated super. We had a nice seat next to the window which looked out over the bay. There are only about 10-12 tables so its close but not noisey. The food was wonderfuland they offered to modify our meals per our request. Our waitress was lovely and very attentive. The coffee was French... More
