    For our Anniversary dinner we had the Sea Bass and Lamb entrees. Superb presentation and flavor. The sides were simple, yet perfectly highlighted the flavors and textures of the meats to which they were paired. We LOVED every bite! Service was prompt, knowledgeable, and friendly. One small critique: On the escargot hors d'oeuvre: the cheese, while delicious, in such a quantity, was a distraction from the delicious garlic and butter beneath. Also, wished that there had been music in the dining area. The tall ceiling and the din of the bar area made it feel ever so slightly vacuous in there, and music would have helped the intimacy. Overall a very good experience - Thank you! We will definitely be back!

    Had heard good things about this restaurant but the night I was there, it was extremely noisy. My friend and I had to raise our voices to hear each other across the table. The food was good but not great. My risotto was salty but my friend's was bland, a bit strange. Neither of us thought it was good enough to order again. The service was rushed with the entree showing up before the apps were cleared. The restaurant was not full so there was no reason for a hurried pace. Maybe we hit an off night.

    All in all a good meal and truly outstanding service. They should remove sauces from their menu, however. There is nothing less appetizing than cold bernaise sauce. There are many restaurants that offer great steaks that don't do bernaise, but if you are offering it, it must be made to order or not at all. For a 40.00 steak, quality demands it. When I requested warmer sauce, I was told they couldn't do that as it was prepped in the morning and would break up if they reheated. Yuck!

    I have dined here several times. Always good service and food. Dining is equally nice at the bar, in the main restaurant, or outside if weather permits. I'm a big fan of comfort food and they have lots along those lines to choose from. O has become one of my favorite spots in town - for a nice dinner with my husband as well as a group lunch with co-workers.

    We went there with my entire family for my grandson's graduation and they were so nice! Service was awesome and were so attentive. My daughter's steak was a little overdone and they replaced it immediately no problem. Food was delicious and the prices were very reasonable. I would definitely return!

    We again enjoyed a wonderful meal at O's. Service was not as attentive as times past, though; it was adequate, but nothing special. Other nit- when I ordered a Cosmo, I was asked if I wanted the "regular" or "premium", which was new. The "regular" was okay, but certainly not as tasty as other times I've ordered one. It was sweeter than it should have been. My suggestion is to ditch the difference on these and just serve a really good drink for one price. I understand the economics of drink sales, but why offer two levels when you are at such a nice place? This will make me think twice about ordering a Cosmo again from here. The food quality and preparation were excellent.

    Decided to visit as they participating in NH restaurant week and high ratings. Very poor service from a waiter who never told us about the specials and had to ask about restaurant week special twice. Then when we got the special menu it was basically lunch items. The food was good however service was poor at best very loud as we were seated next to two large parties even though plenty of other tables open when we arrived and when we left. Will probably not come here again.

    Had the seafood risotto and it was fantastic, it contained a fair amount of seafood and the risotto was perfectly prepared. My only comment is that the scallops in the dish should have been regular sea scallops and not the small bay scallops which have no taste. They also made a great Espresso Martini.

    First Open Table blocked times from 6 to 7:30 for reservations so we went at 5:45pm. No one was in the restaurant portion of the place. It never filled up so could have eaten at 6:30 Next it was so dark you couldn't see what you were eating which is probably the way they want it for the price it was disappointing to get prefrozen food instead of fresh! There was four of us and it was all bad. Traditional Escargots was bizare in garlic butter out of the shell and then covered with bread and butter, more like french onion soup?? Where did they study? Don't order the colby beef meatloaf - we own a beef farm and that stuff wouldn't attract a coyote. Just don't go.

    Ohs was initially well received in Concord, as good restaurants there are hard to find. However, this meal was lackluster. The chicken with cashews and lettuce wrap was too large a portion and lacked flavor, other than salt. The short ribs were good, but the portion was again, too large. They need to upgrade their menu and improve their flavors.

    I have eaten at O's a number of times. Generally the food quality and service is top notch. This visit delivered a less than expected experience, granted it was on Valentines Day a busy evening. Server was not really attentive and provided no explanation of our pre fixe courses, and provided just a "drop and go" type of service. Our steaks were ordered medium rare. One was delivered medium to medium well, the other border lining well done (sorry, no excuse for an overcooked $50 steak). The server never returned during the main course to check on our entree's so we sat and ate them. I really like O's though and will forgive this off night to return and give them another try.

    The lunch was a semi-annual vendor lunch with folks from out of town. I've personally dinned at O's several times in the past and always had great experiences there, both for lunch and dinner, so it was an easy choice for this. Even though I had a last minute change to our reservation, O's was very accommodating and ready for us when we arrived. The server was pleasant and knowledgeable about the menu and attentive but not over bearing. Everyone in our party was very happy with the menu selection and thoroughly enjoyed lunch. I had the fish and chips and it was delightful. The fish was not very heavily battered which was a nice change from many other restaurants and the home made tarter sauce was excellent. I will be returning so
