My husband and I stopped by on a whim last saturday night and were able to get seated fairly quickly with no reservation. We had the calamari as a starter and I agree with other reviews this was delicious and we were pleasantly surprised with how much we got. We also got the broccoli salad, ricotta, and short ribs which... More

Stopped here with friends and enjoyed most everything. Quality was right on and felt the portions just a bit small. This place has a great vibe and service was perfect.

How did I not know about this place? Small plates, all amazing. A continental tapas, if you will. Every dish was unique, especially the rarebit and the short rib. Calamari was excellent but not so different than you can get elsewhere, but that was the exception. Drinks were well constructed without being super pretentious. Highly recommend and mad at myself...

Great for couples or friends, not for little children. New England Dinner 2.0 was absolutely delicious. Sizes were perfect for our date night and sharing!

We made a reservation here for dinner while in Portsmouth during a holiday weekend. The restaurant was slammed so they were delayed in getting our table. We were continuously checked on, offered free drinks, and our table had snacks waiting when we were seating. The waitstaff and host were INCREDIBLE! We probably tried 1 of everything on the menu and... More

I stopped by for a quick dinner, had the sangria, beef short rib marmalade and the hasty pudding frites. The sangria wasn't that flavorful, the frites were bland, and the two tiny servings of the beef short rib marmalade on the hors d'oeuvre-size bread were good but not worth $9. For the price, the food and drink should have been... More

I took my parents here when they were up visiting from North Carolina. We all LOVED Moxy. So much fun. The menu style was a little confusing to us at first, and we were unsure how much to order, but once the food started coming out it all made perfect sense. Every single bite of everything we tried was such... More

This restaurant is tucked away on a quiet street and its worth the stroll to find it. The tapas offer you the opportunity to try new dishes without having to commit to a large entree. The roasted beef bone marrow is out of this world and one of the only food items that I have eaten and continue to think... More

This is a tapas restaurant with AMAZING high quality and creative food. In support of local fare and flavors, the creations are both beautiful and delicious. My sister and I had a lovely evening exploring the various dishes. High on my list (and in my memory banks) were the pan seared chicken thighs and the NH mushrooms. The blend of... More
