Otis is part of each visit to Exeter - we live in Dallas and have a student at Exeter, so we visit a few times a year. We would put Otis up against many other exceptional restaurants globally. We often order the Sleeper 5, Otis'...More

Cute cozy atmosphere. Chef owned and operated, pan to order food that was delicious, creative flavors and beautiful presentation. Fantastic service. Will definitely be going back.

Food was fine but not too special. Hostess and bartender were both a bit snobby. Don't feel the need to go back which is too bad because it's very cute inside.

Cocktails, innovative food, all good. We will come back. We have surveyed 4-5 restaurants in Exeter and this one is best. You will need reservations. Only negative is this restaurant is all hard surfaces, so it is extremely noisy. We couldn't hear each other.

Otis in Exeter NH is an amazing restaurant and probably one of THE BEST places to eat in the Northeast!!! The menu changes daily and you have to make a reservation to eat there. One comment...just GO!

this little restaurant in downtown Exeter is the best restaurant on the seacoast. We visited several times now, and each time was better than the last! Drinks, appetizers and entrees are ever changing, unique and exquisitely prepared. This gem of an eatery tops them all....More

Fairly reasonable for a green salad each and a yummy omelette. It was close to $45 before tip
