“Excellent Dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

My Husband and I were in Portsmouth a few weeks ago and had dinner at the Green Monkey. The food was amazing. We started with the Roasted Beet Salad which might be one of the best beet salads I've had and I've had a lot of them as I am a big beet fan. We then shared the Monkey Burger and Pomegranate Braised Short Rib for our entrees. The burger was juicy and flavorful accompanied by perfectly salted and crispy shoe string fries. The Braised Short rib was served with creamy polenta, roasted yams and sauteed kale. The combination was great, and the short rib was melt in you mouth tender, the yams were crispy on the outside yet creamy on the inside and the polenta was creamy and flavorful. Our server was friendly and very attentitive. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to others.

“Creative,well executed food served in a welcoming ,efficient dining room. A home run!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

My husband and I took our dear friend out to dinner to the green monkey after reading a lot of wonderful reviews. We are foodies and are often disappointed with the " over the top" reviews some restaurants get.Not so with the Green Monkey. The praise was well deserved. The food was inventive and delicious. The beef cheeks and scallop appetizer was amazing. The pistachio/dark chocolate homemade ice cream was fabulous. We will definitely be back. Jcardi55, Jan.5th,2013

“Wonderful Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013

We ate here twice during our stay in Portsmouth, after it being highly recommended by the front desk at the Ale House Inn. We were very pleased with the food and service both times and would be glad to go back.
