We scrambled for a place to have dinner on NYE. We googled and found Savory Square Bistro- good find! We were able to make a reservation (prior to 10:00) and our table was ready upon arrival. They had a NYE menu and also offered the regular menu which we all appreciated. Salads were excellent, drinks were good but a bit on the pricey side. Meals- 2 of us had the beef tenderloin which was very good, 1 pork tenderloin- excellent, and 1 ordered the salmon which was also excellent. The table bread was fresh/hot and offered a variety of different breads in the basket. The french fries were run of the mill- how about some steak fries or tater tots to stand out from every other restaurant with french fries? We appreciated the fact that you did not jack up prices for NYE. We shared a dessert- the flourless choc cake- delish! After dinner, we moved over to the bar area to ring in the new year. Bar area is very nice- band was decent. The atomosphere for the restaurant and bar are both very nice. Restaurant and restroom were both clean. Waitress was friendly and service was timely. We've lived in Hampton for years and had never been here- we'll be back and we are even thinking about signing up for a cooking class. Thanks for a great NYE and hope Savory Square Bistro has a great 2014.

The wine selection is acceptable along with the food and its presentation. Bar selection is average shelf liquor with top shelf prices. Not a place to mingle with the bar crowd. Definitely an intimate restaurant set aside from the bar. I would give the Savoy another chance at all around improvement with the emphasis on the waitress staff.

overall a friendly staff and properly prepared food. thanks to the knowledgeable Chef. I am sure that the waitress we encountered during our first visit to the Savory who made our dining experience a nightmare was the exception. It was a constant battle to understand what she was saying. She talked to fast and her attempt to maintain a phone smile and talk at the same time was a nightmare. As much as we enjoyed the atmosphere and the rest of the staff we will not be visiting Savory Square Bistro for dinner anytime soon, if ever. there are far to many restaurants in our area that appreciate their loyal repeat customers

Thank you for taking the time to write us a review on your experience at Savory Square Bistro. All feedback, good and bad, is essential to providing the best service we can to our loyal patrons.
I am encouraged that you stated overall we have a friendly staff and knowledgeable chef. Assuring our staff treats our guests in a professional, friendly manner is of high importance and anything less is unacceptable. Having said that, would you consider that your server did not act in a professional way? Was she friendly?
I regret that you had a hard time understanding your server, and would hope that you would consider giving our restaurant another chance. We are very proud of the level of service that we require of our staff and do receive many great reviews not only on our staff but on the outstanding dishes that our Chef and his staff create.
Thank you again for your review! If you decide to visit us again for dinner, please ask for me personally!
Ron Boucher, Owner

My wife and I had a very pleasant dining experience at Savory Square Bistro. The waitress and staff was very professional, attentive and pleasant. The food was excellent and we were both stuffed by rhe time that we left. We had a free $25.00 gift certificate through dine.restaurant.com and we chose this restaurant because we enjoyed another restaurant that the owner of this restaurant owns. We found that Savory Square Bistro meets the standards of the other restaurant. Even without a gift certificate, we will return.
