“Nice Addition to Portsmouth's Dining Landscape”
Reviewed November 22, 2013

Does Portsmouth NH, which already sports some 150 dining establishments, need another? The answer, in the case of LoMo, is "yes." LoMo brings a new energy and a new menu to what was formerly the space of the Green Monkey. The only detail that remains from that earlier restaurant is the tendency of the room to get loud when crowded. But so be it. Loud is just fine when the food placed before you is exceptional.

The appetizers we tried were fresh, appealing, and delicious. Particularly the Charcuterie and a gravlax and pickled vegetable veloute. They matched well with the spirits from the bar, which were amply served.

Then there is a class by itself: the roasted organic chicken. Presently listed as a daily add-on, it should be a regular on the LoMo menu. The incredibly tender and tasty one-half chicken floated above perfectly matched sauce, and the foie gras that held it up melted like butter. Really. That good.

And the service. It could not have been more attentive, pleasant, and informative. Keep this up LoMo, and you might just top off the ranks of the best dining in this very proud-to-dine-out Seacoast NH area.

“New exciting arrival in Portsmouth NH”
Reviewed November 16, 2013

LoMo is a real find. Chef/Owner Daniel Dumont brings a new exciting restaurant experience to Portsmouth. LoMo is where the now closed Green Monkey used to be. His team are charming and professional. Despite the fact our table was not ready when we arrived (place was full) we we received a warm genuine greeting. Chef sent an amuse bouche while we waited with a glass of wine (nice selection available). The service was attentive and the food was OUTSTANDING!! LoMo is a "must experience" for Portsmouth residents and visitors.
