The best on the seacoast!This is my favorite restaurant on the seacoast. The food is always fantastic, the atmosphere is comfortable, yet unassuming, and the service is impeccable. The mussels are consistently the best I have had anywhere (including Paris), and the wine list is wonderful.

He went to cordon bleu, he loved it and so did we.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food, Service was SlowWe went to Anneke's for our friends birthday dinner. The drinks and food were really great and our server was very nice, but in ordering drinks it took almost 15 minutes (or more) for them to arrive at the table. As well, our server only checked in a few times, when we really needed more attention to refill bread, water, drinks, etc. Again, the server was very polite, but either too busy, or not quite invested enough.
The appetizers were delicious and all the entrees were very well prepared. We will absolutely be dinning there again.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThe bartender Steve was exceptionalThe bartender Steve was exceptional in his attentiveness to the three of us ladies. Very personable and provided us a great evening.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first time atThis was our first time at Anneke Jans since the expansion. We were a little concerned that it would change the ambiance and the service , but we were very pleasantly surprised.
The whole experience exceeded our expectations. I would gladly recommend that restaurant and I can't wait to go back again.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMI was there for RestaurantI was there for Restaurant Week and was very impressed. The place was packed, presumably due to Restaurant week, but the service was still attentive and fast. The only downside was that the noise level was quite loud, which also might be an artifact of the timing.
The food was fantastic, especially the braised pork shank. It was melt-in-your-mouth tender. For desert I had the Grapefruit Meringue Tart, which was also very good. The meringue was still a bit chewy, almost like marshmallow, which I really enjoyed.
Overall, I had a great experience and would definitely return again!4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMI travel all over New EnglandI travel all over New England and this is my favorite place of all to eat. The the only thing more amazing than the service is the food. These guys rock!!!
