This restaurant, run by a man who has been in the business in Hampton for more than 30 years, has proven to be consistently good and a good value this winter. The Wednesday $1 each oysters are a great asset as are the half price appetizers on Wednesdays. There are also small plates so you can have a creative and... More

We had a gift certificate, so we went. Online, the menu looked promising, but pulling up to the strip mall and walking into the place, it looks like it hasn't been remodeled since the 90's. We opted for a light dinner in the bar. I didn't notice what kind of chairs they had in the dining room, but the wooden... More

If it is fine dining you seek, Savory Square in Hampton, NH is where you will find it. Award-winning chef Ron Boucher has brought to Seacoast, NH as close to a Paris fine dining experience as any food critic could ever hope for. While not a professional food critic myself, my french background has allowed me to experience the best... More

We haven't been here for along time but it did not disappoint. The dining room is small so it is quiet and has nice ambience. The meals were delicious and the service was excellent. The manhattan special was not great but the martini special was excellent. The wine selection is good. The dessert was a lemon square to die for.... More

This restaurant is tucked away, but when you find it you will go back again and again. The food is absolutely outstanding, the staff is knowledgeable and inviting. Whether you eat in the pub or the dining room, the experience will not disappoint. The cooking school is first class and I highly recommend it for a group outing with friends.... More

Four of us went for an early B-day dinner. Called an hour ahead and was able to secure a table in the dining room. Cozy atmosphere. Seafood chowder is excellent. The smoked paprika oil added a nice twist. Salads were fresh. The grilled BLT salad was delicious. All had the steak au poivre with peppercorn cream – cooked to perfection.... More

Set in historic Depot Square in Hampton, Savory Square Bistro is one of the favorite venues with locals and tourists alike. Recently, my wife and I visited for... More

Went with friends who had been there a number of times. Small dining area, 10 tables which on a weekday is taken care of by one wait person. Area 3/4 full. Found service to be relaxed but I attributed it to the the French Bistro atmosphere. Slow service for drinks maybe they are trying to keep my liver viable! When... More

My husband and I went here to celebrate our 4th wedding anniversary, and couldn't be more pleased with our choice! Our server was personable and engaging, the food was incredible, and the atmosphere was very classy without being overly stuffy. The restaurant is intimate, but it doesn't feel small. There was a group of 14 in there at the same... More

We had dinner here twice during our recent mini-vacation, Our innkeeper had recommended we try this restaurant. On our first visit, we arrived to find an empty dining room which made us wonder if we had made a mistake. People began arriving a bit later, so I guess we were "early birds" at 6 pm. Husband ordered the Seafood Chowder... More
