We are all very sad about this, but the excellent Green Monkey restaurant closed their doors on Friday, August 30, 2013. The article in the paper said that the restaurant had already been sold to a new owner, but nothing was said about the new name, food style, or anything else. The Green Monkey website has a goodbye notice on... More

My husband and I would not be back in Portsmouth until ~9:30PM that Thursday. I called to inquire about reservations, and though it states that they are open until 9:30, they said they would put us down for a 9:30 reservation. We actually made it there around 9:20 and the staff and owner couldn't have been more welcoming! We were... More

My daughter and I were in search of a place to eat after a long ride with lots of traffic. I keep gluten free and often have difficulty with Menus. This was perfect, so welcoming, food delicious, bet Martini and the music was wonderful. I highly recommend this place, fun but peaceful what a great combination. The food was real,unprocessed...

My husband and I dine out each Friday,and are always looking for new restaurants to try. We strayed south to Portsmouth, from our usual dinners in Portland and we were not disappointed. We made reservations, which were recommended on the website and were quickly and kindly helped by Alana. It was she who greeted us at the door and, though... More

We sat at the bar which was very nice and comfortable. I had a blueberry martini which was very good, but not the best I have ever had. We split the spinach artichoke dip which was also very good. I had the monkey burger with fries which was just delicious. My boyfriend had salmon which he said was good. The... More

I live in Portsmouth and very much enjoy dining out in our rich selection of restaurants. My friend and I had been looking forward to visiting The Green Monkey as it has a very good reputation. We knew it would be on the expensive side but we thought it would definitely be worth it. I am now regretting not complaining... More

The owner greeted us as soon as we walked in the door making us feel ever so welcome. I chose the Green Monkey because the menu offers many gluten-free options. We were delighted to eat warm home-made gluten-free bread. Not everyone in our party is gluten-free so there was regular bread as well, but everyone wanted the gluten-free as it... More

This is a restaurant we have visited before and will continue to do so whenever in Portsmouth! From the moment you walk in, it is warm and inviting - you are often greeted by the owner herself who is terrific! Stop a the bar for a drink and try one of their many martinis - my favorite is the green... More
