good food

the Stove has a high end menu, the portions are adequate, very little parking and its on the street. I thought the prices were a little high.

One of our favorite restaurants. A bit eclectic? Yes! That is most of the fun! Menu is limited, but some of the best food I have had in a restaurant. Cooking classes are a blast too! We have never had staff issues as some have mentioned, and not sure what other folks have encountered, but Kim and her counterparts have... More

Very surprising but nice place, the chief is very inventive and all cooking is very very sweet but spicy. Thank you for all we tasted in this restaurant during our three visits

I've been a fan of Sidney's since the old Dumbwaiter days. He never fails to serve up something special. You won't find this kind of food anywhere else. Like his decor, his food is eclectic and off the beaten path!

After a good friend and her family celebrated her birthday at Stove in late January, I called to inquire about reservations for Valentine's. Until the night of the event, looked forward to it as I had made the reservations as a surprise for my husband. The afternoon of the reservation, someone called to confirm we were coming. Had a great... More

Went here for the first time and no thoughts on what to expect. I did look at the menu online and had somewhat of an idea of the food offerings. Which I highly recommend you do prior to going. The menu at the restaurant is limited and in my opinion relies way to heavily on Goat Cheese and seems there... More

Went with friends to dine. Made reservations and had an enjoyable meal. There was no problem in the food itself. Stove utilizes local foods and does a phenomenal job incorporating it into their menu and making limited foods very appealing. My review is rated as such due to the staff. In the course of my time there, the party I... More

Great and knowledgeable service, but catering to one distinctive palate..spicy. If you like heavily seasoned; intense spicy southern food you'll probably love the dishes. Limited menu. However, the best grits I have ever had the pleasure of eating.

Stove is definitely one of my favorites. Sydney is a culinary mad genius. The seating is limited and you can often find the owner sipping a bubbly after he has finished in the kitchen. He lives across the street and sources most of his ingredients locally and always fresh. We always look forward to his specials as it introduces us... More

This small restaurant was recommended to us by the locals at our marina so we decided to give it a try. We were warned it was quite pricey, but worth it. There was also a Groupon that we used, $60 off for $30. It is a small restaurant in a converted house in historic Portsmouth with lots of art on... More
