Perfect setting for my cousin's 80th Birthday. We ate upstairs in a private dining room. Service was impeccable, and the staff helped us pull off this surprise party. Horderves were excellent led by the delicious Ahi Tuna. The salad was tasty and the entrees were good as well. I highly recommend their specialty Martinis as well.

Serendipity! Friends daughter is the pastry chef. Wonderful food. Amazing new item on the menu. Cusk, a fish that tastes like cod! Delicious creme brûlée with pumpkin bar.

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.

Description
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.
