We moved nearby and love French food. We thought there was no way this restaurant could compare to our travels in Paris and we were very pleasantly wrong. The food is consistently good, with great specials and drinks. The waitstaff is okay. I think they could work on the service a bit as they're a little inattentive (especially for such... More

Ate in the bar which is very friendly and comfortable. Great service and food. Dining room is more formal and sedate. So depending on what you are looking for this place has it

Have tried eating here several times, but have never warmed up to the place. The food is good, but the atmosphere is somewhat stuffy and the staff not welcoming.

We've eaten here twice and have been impressed with the food and also the wait staff in the bar. There is a restaurant, but we choose the bar and love it. We also met the owner the first night we were there and thoroughly enjoyed talking with him. We highly recommend the Bistro.

Great evening. Wild mushroom risotto with pan seared scallops is a fabulous choice. Apps poutine is great, no heavy gravy. Escargot en croute, phenomenal. Waiting now for dessert, and espresso martinis..great date night!

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
