“Fabulous food”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

I went to Martingale Wharf last night with 18 business associates. The contemporary interior and bar were beautiful. We all really enjoyed our food. We had a variety of appetizers including a cheese platter, fried calamari and a french fry plate that was not your ordinary french fries! For dinner I had the wheatberry salad, my entree was the carmelized scallops, and for dessert I had the flourless chocolate cake. All of the food was fabulous. The wait staff was friendly and attentive. The only reason I am not rating this restaurant "excelllent" is because I found the woman "in charge" of our room to be unfriendly. That being said, because of the food and ambiance, i will definitely head back to Martingale Wharf in the near future.

“A New Addittion to Bow Street”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

Over the last couple of years Bow Street, on the water side, has seen great improvements. Many of the same establishments are there with improved access from the water side and new outside eating options. As one of the new restaurants, The Wharf is decidedly contemporary in it's appearance with it's bar commanding the room. Seating options included a range of tables,booths and living room arrangements inside and tables, some with fire pits on the outside. With the weather a little on the cooler side, we choose the inside and were seated at a table for two in front of the plate glass window facing the water. While the drinks are more on line with a Martini bar, the draft beer selection was more than adequate. We enjoyed their tuna, cooked very rare, and the caramelized sea scallops, the sauce was perfect for this dish. We found the service to be attentive and friendly. We would agree that the value is a little lacking depending on what is ordered. Overall, an elegant evening out.

“A Wonderful Experience!”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

I did not make the reservation for the restaurant and, after reading the reviews, was a bit concerned that it might not be the best experience. There was nothing to be worried about It was an absolutely wonderful experience. The food was awesome and the service was exceptional. Martingale Wharf was worth every penny paid! Thank you!

“Very overpriced”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

Wow - $180 per couple with wine, for Portsmouth?? The restaurant was loud, food was OK, service was friendly but slow. Nice decor. There are so many better options in this city.
