Dinner at Bridge St last night with a party of 6 - food was great, service was outstanding. We were running late and in a bit of a rush to get to a show - the way the waitstaff worked together as a team to...More

Lovely little French bistro just outside downtown Portsmouth (out by 1 block). Wine bar downstairs; 8-10 tables upstairs, with subdued setting. Great use for an old building, and delicious food. What more you want? Use their coupon from their website.

This restaurant is our favorite, in a town filled with many good restaurants. The food is amazing, the service is impeccable, and the ambiance is warm and romantic. Owners Chris and Stephan Mayeux, are truly dedicated, and make everyone feel welcome.

A great find courtesy of a friend. Outside the center ring of restaurants and shops, but well worth the few extra steps. The Duck was awesome, the staff eclectic and engaging. Reservations recommended.

I've eaten at a good number of Portsmouth restaurants, but never Cafe Mirabelle (old name) or the Bridge Street Bistrot (current name). I didn't know of any word of mouth reputation but the Yelp and OpenTable reviews looked favorable. I must say, we had a...More

The same talented couple who operated Café Mirabelle on Bridge Street for many years rebranded not too long ago, with the result being the Bridge Street Bistrot. The result is also one of the coziest, most charming dining spots in the city. Not to mention...More

We've lived in Portsmouth for several years and for some reason never made it here before. May be the best restaurant in this town full of great restaurants. Very comfortable setting and attention to detail. The food is fantastic. The duck is amazing, but everything...More
