The chef knows what he's doing, the room is a delight, and the bar is friendly. Terrific!

“A gem in Portsmouth's Crown of Thorns”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2008

Have been to The Wellington Room twice in the past few months. There is not a better location in town! The views are beautiful and oh so romantic, if you are looking for a place to celebrate a special occassion or treat a special someone, this is the place! The food is great, all well prepared and presented. The owner, Karen takes extra pride in assuring your evening is unmatched. I have eaten at every restaurant in Portsmouth and although some are better than others, there is no place I would rather go for an evening of great food and relaxing atmosphere. If you want a night our that you will remember for a long time to come, The Wellington Room is it! Walk up that little staircase, you will be delighted you did!

I threw my husband a birthday party at the Wellington Room and it was a wonderful and special experience. The owners were amazing to work with and they provided a delicious seasonal menu. The atmosphere was intimate and was truly the best place to enjoy a party with friends. And the food was carefully prepared and so tasty! I highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion, special or otherwise.

“Excellent food, great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2008

Was looking for someplace new in the area to celebrate a special occasion. Read the reviews here and gave it a try, very glad we did! The setting is just lovely. Intimate, nicely decorated, great views of the river. Window seats have the best views but are directly under the air conditioning vents, which is the only thing I would change if possible.

The wine list is small but good and the food was just fantastic. We had the halibut cakes and mushroom crepe appetizers, both were tasty. For main course, the lamb is highly recommended and the arctic char was nice but I liked the lamb better. Desert was great too, peach tart and creme brulee complemented by delicious coffee served in a French press. One of the owners was our waitress and she provided excellent service. Price was in line with other similar restaurants in town and definitely worth it. All in all, a lovely evening and I look forward to our next visit.

“Wonderful food with an amazing view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2008

The restaurant is on the second floor overlooking the Piscataqua River, the river traffic provides the visual entertainment.

The Thai Halibut Cakes and Creme Brulee are completely delicious. The owners and staff always make you feel very welcome like they're inviting you into their home.
