We had to wait 25 minutes to get a seat at around 8pm, so beware ! But the food was really good, there is a great choice of healtier food and the service was friendly.

“Disappointed”
Reviewed August 10, 2014 via mobile

With so many restaurant choices in Portsmouth, it was difficult to choose where to eat. Surf was not a good choice for us. The restaurant itself was very loud and crowded. We could have heard the conversation at the table next to us even if they had been whispering. As for the food, I had the shrimp with peas and quinoa in a tahini sauce. Although the shrimp were a good size, the flavor was masked by an over abundance of the sauce. The Surf experience was a quick one, however. We were in and out of the restaurant in about 30 minutes.

“Afternoon Sojourn”
Reviewed August 9, 2014

We enjoyed a lazy lunch with an upbeat and knowledgeable server, who appreciated that we were there to have lunch. The weather cleared and our view of the river was sensational. Thanks, Surf for providing us with some new experiences that were fun and delicious. Looking forward to returning today for another enjoyable afternoon.

“Perfect ”
Reviewed August 6, 2014 via mobile

First review I've ever done. Food and service here are great. If you can get a table outside they have amazing views. Quality of food for the price is also a big plus. Affordable bottles of wine.
