My husband and I made online reservations at Mombo's for a Saturday evening to celebrate our anniversary. The hostess and our waitress, Emily, were friendly and attentive. I ordered lobster bisque to start, and my husband had the BLT Caesar salad. I was amazed at the large chunks of lobster in the bisque, and the salad was fresh and large.... More

Based on a recommendation of a friend, my wife and I went to Mombo right before the Labor Day weekend. Our first impression was good, since we liked the fact that it had valet parking and the décor was very nice. We split an order of the “pork 4 ways” appetizer then I order the “Rib Eye streak” and my... More

I live about 2 hours away and never get to the area much, happened to look them up on here and since the menu looked so good I went for it. So glad I did! I sat at the bar right when you walk in and I wish I remembered the blonde bartenders name, but she was awesome! I started... More

Friday evening dinner for four. Lots of good things here -- valet parking next to the restaurant (essential in this part of Portsmouth), attractive room, very promising menu, reservation honored promptly, prompt and attentive service. But it could have been better. Caesar salad BLT - attractive initial presentation, but the majority of it was chopped iceberg lettuce with no dressing... More

3 couples went to Mombo for dinner on a Saturday night. Be sure to make reservations. Mombo is in an ideal location and has it's own parking lot. This is unheard of in Portsmouth and one of the main reasons why we chose this restaurant on a busy summer Saturday night. We often find parking in Portsmouth difficult especially in... More

Mombo's is normally one of the first restaurants we think of in Portsmouth for a special night out. Our recent visit was really quite awful. We were a party of 5 with reservations at 8:00 pm on a Tuesday evening, expecting a lovely dinner with our daughter's future in-laws. The appetizers, pork chop and moon fish dishes were excellent. The... More

Would not have chosen this one if it had not been for my sister in law. Not that it is was in a rundown building or in a crazy spot, it was neither. Dee greeted us and showed us to our table, our hexagonal table, Maeve's table. She did great, knowledgable about the menu and pleasant to be served by.... More

I don't mind paying up for good food, but the prices here are high and in my experience the food is only mediocre. Our very nice waitress made some suggestions...unfortunately I ignored them! The cucumber soup was excessively watery. The waitress warned me that the scallop dish was small, but I wasn't interested in a big meal so I got... More

Can't say enough good about Mombo. The atmosphere, the food, the wait staff.....just beats out about anything else I've experienced. And if you are looking for a place to host a special event, this is the place. Casey Syvertsen is the special events coordinator extraordinaire. We hosted 24 people, with 4 of them being children, for a wedding reception. The... More

We took the place for 8/5 with a group of about 80. This was the 2nd time in 3 years and the staff here made it memorable. From the drinks to the passed appetizers and make your own lamb, beef, duck or chicken pita pockets to the entrees and atmosphere- Nothing could have been better! (Well they could make a... More

Opened in the Spring of 2010, Mombo’s dining experience is a short vacation from it all offering creative cuisine with international influences, warm hospitality and unparalleled service in a historic Portsmouth, NH landmark. Walk under the wood-beamed ceiling and wrought-iron chandeliers to feel the relaxed elegance of the space. Sit in the fireplace lounge, at the open kitchen bar, in one of the comfy banquettes or even next to the bubbling fountain in the rear courtyard to enjoy the delightful made-from-scratch dishes using fresh, local and honest ingredients. Whether it is the chef’s charcuterie platter, the seared fois gras or our signature lobster bisque that you start your meal with, we want to make you feel as if you have escaped from everyday stresses and leave wanting to come on vacation again at Mombo.
