Diner Reviews
  • "Savory Square Bistro is now my favorite local restaurant. The food is amazing and the service is excellent. I've dined there 4 or 5 times and I always walk out very happy!"

  • "We invited two friends that had not been to Savory Sq Bistro. We had been there twice and wanted to share the good experience. Sadly, the waiter informed us that the menu choices were limited because they were shifting to a spring menu. Thus, several of our favorite choices were not available - however, no specials or new spring items were yet available as replacements. We were disappointed."

  • "Loved this small, intimate place. Gourmet food, great wine list, good music in the bar area with a separate dining area if you don't want to hear the music. Service was so attentive and welcoming - made us feel very special. A great, warm neighborhood crowd. I'll be going back for sure."

  • "Despite the business of a late Saturday night, the Maitre d', Brian, was calm, warm and welcoming, really focused on us as we entered. Our server Craig ! Craig had expert knowledge of the menu, local cuisine and inishgt into ingredients and various dishes we asked about. he ws busy but never rushed us and we asked a lot of questions before ordering! The char!cuterie appetizer was a foot long plus board which would actually feed four or a meal for one. He was also abe to advise specific nature of how to choose their best martini. I would definitely go back. Gven the volume of diners, the quality was outstanding from the chef. The specials and signature lists were super. AND the pot de creme threesome were absolutely delicious."

  • "It was our first time there. We will be frequenting it from now on. I would have to say it is the best dining on the seacoast."

  • "A feast of colors, an okra/ pumpkin room, interesting wall treatments, quaint bistro tables welcomed us. We dined off a 3-course menu designed to support the high school's Chem Free, with interesting and varied choices. I enjoyed the french onion soup, delicious with a rich, aromatic broth and nice blend of cheeses baked to perfection. My steak au poivre was sliced thin and fanned out with french fries and asparagus,nice presentation and prepared perfectly. Poached pear with creme fresh and berries, the perfect light finish. They tweaked the menu for my GF diet, but waitstaff was a bit forgetful and slow. We will go back, but probably eat in the bar. Looking forward to sampling the full menu."

  • "Savory Square Bistro was exactly what we hoping it would be - excellent food, not too loud, cozy dining area, and pleasant service. Highly recommend the seafood nachos appetizer (I hear it will be in the regular rotation soon). We'll be heading back soon!"

  • "Our dinner was fabulous. Everything was well prepared, presented beautifully, and tasted exceptionally delicious. Each dish was beautifully customized. The amuse bouche to start us off was superb. The seasoned butter with the bread was tasty. All of our entrees were perfectly cooked and very tasty. We split three different desserts and all were fabulous. An overall great experience."

  • "We love the Savory Square Bistro! The name doesn't give it justice. This is truly a fine restaurant full of class. The food is wonderful and the service is too. I love that it is small and intimate!"
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "The Monday through Thursday special was as amazing as the food. I walked out having had a bottle of wine and a three course meal that was the best I had in a long while for a surprisingly small amount. I would go back again."

  • "Arrived on time for reservation,no table available, so whats the point of Open Table Seated with another couple (who were offered to move to another table) at a table for four Waitress/kitchen who knows? messed up the appetizer order, so we had our soup and salad first Basically 55 minutes from the time we sat down till we were served food, couple seated with us was well into 2nd course Bread was straight from a bag, French Onion soup should have been called Worcestershire Soup, which we sent back For the price, food was OK, no better than other places, no WOW factor. Have you ever had the feeling that once they realized they messed up that you were basically ignored the rest of the night? Never again, too many other restaurants out there"

  • "We did not know this place existed until we got a gift certificate. It was excellent! Food and service were exemplary. The scallops and risotto were perfect, We will be back!"

  • "First visit to Savory Square and was very impressed. A cozy atmosphere, relaxed with great service and excellent food. The menu was eclectic and inventive without being too far from our comfort zone. Would definitely return when in the area."

  • "The service and food were exceptional. Their "Winter Warmer" specials were a bargain for two people with several choices for 3 courses. A bottle of wine added for $15.00 with great choices. Cannot wait to go back !"

  • "We have been here multiple times. My husband is all about food and the presentation. I cannot say enough about the food here. It is all good. We have never had a bad meal. Our Valentine's day dinner was exceptional. Four course meal with asparagus soup with lobster, salad with fried oysters with mandarin orange and homemade dressing, sea bass with lobster ravioli and broccolini, and lavender ice cream with raspberry compote and heart shaped strawberries. The seating is intimate, but you must call for reservations since there are not many tables. You can also take a cooking class here which we have done as couple that is a lot of fun. Go and enjoy. You won't be disappointed."

  • "The seacoast doesn't offer a whole lot of fine dining choices. The Savory Square Bistro offers table linens, romantic atmosphere, and excellent service. Don't forget the reservation though- it's a small place! I'd give it an overall A rating."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "We went the night of a storm so only the bar room was open. It was a great experience. The meal was superb and was served by the chef! It was very cozy, friendly and a relaxed atmosphere. We enjoyed the first time bartender who was the chef's wife. She made us feel very welcome and did a great job with the drinks!"
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "Always good, always enjoyable, Savory Square never offers a bad meal. If 4.5 stars were possible, that would be my rating only because there are one or two even more special in the area. I would definitely recommend without hesitation."

  • "V-day: butternut squash ravioli is amazing. We had to sit in the bar area which was overcrowded but did have live music which was very nice. So good we went there twice this week. Charcuterie board and risotto are also fantastic."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Despite a reservation we didn't get seated for 30 minutes. The bar was very noisy and crowded. Understandable for the holiday to be so busy, to a point. This is my favorite restaurant, but on this night it was not exactly what I had hoped for. Our table had no flowers, as did all the others, no bread to start as usual, and the dining was rushed."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Highly recommended by friends, and we were not disappointed. All three courses were top flight!"
    Dined on 2/12/2014
  • "They try too hard to make the food unique and special and remind you of that so expectations get raised to the point of it becomes nearly impossible to live up to the hype about it. Despite raves from the waitress about the bread, the bread seemed ordinary and the butter was so loaded with garlic I actually spit it out. And so went the rest of the meal: too special and precious for me. Couldn't get a plain lettuce tomato and cuke salad - tomatoes were marinated and tasted "funny" and the balsamic dressing also was weird - made with vanilla, etc. Main course (lamb) too small and focused on presentation & sauce instead of substance. Desserts OTOH were excellent and large, however. Guess I'm just not a fan of French-type food."
    Dined on 2/12/2014
  • "The Bistro is a gem that is a bit hidden. It is worth finding if you enjoy food and dining out. I would recommend without hesitation."

  • "It is on the ritzier side but not unreasonable. I would not recommend bringing children. Very Romantic quiet atmosphere. The food is delicious. Waitress wAs a little slow but it was busy. I would go again. They have specials during the Week that are really reasonable. Try it you'll love it!!!"

  • "Food was great, service spectacular, service workers were incredibly warm. I read a lot of reviews about serving sizes being small and that was most definitely not the case. I was counting on getting dessert but between the yummy drinks and food I just didn't have room. Everything was perfect!"

  • "Went for wife's birthday. Started w/drinks in the bar. Unfortunately the bartender spilled a martini on my wife. He was embarrassed & apologetic. Drinks were on him along with a promise to pick up the dry cleaningl. Not necessary but appreciated. On to dinner, she was sold on a "memorable dining experience" if she got the Steak & lobster or steak scallops. After a good 20 min go around with the waitress & host finally we were told no steaks left & they would not or could not make the dish with just scallops. She was a bit frustrated but a complementary cocktail eased that. Then her seafood fettuccini was amazing as was my duck. The appetizers and dessert were just ok but the main course was excellent. Strange night but overall we'd go back."

  • "I went there to see the Rico Barr trio and stayed for dinner. We could still hear the music from the dining room and maintain a conversatin. My group of four decided to share 4 appetizers and leave room for desert. All were very good although we had to ask for more bread to go with the lobster dip and my coffee was cold. I would go there again. $$$"
