CRs is a very nice restaurant with impeccable setting and service. However we have had bad luck there the last two times we went. First, we were seated in a booth than had not been assigned a server. So, we waited and waited, nothing for at least 30 min with staff constantly going by. Finally a server we had had before adopted us and things went fine after that. Last night things were fine and I ordered the special Prime Rib. My wife had the filet. When my prime rib came it was more than rare..it was raw, bright red, and very tough! I rejected it and they took it back, but brought another just like it. I rejected that and asked for a filet like my wife had which was very good. They complied and brought a filet which looked good but by then it was too late to eat, so we brought it home. They were nice through all this and didn't complain. This all ruined a nice evening. I can't understand why they would serve a raw piece of meat. Now I'm ambivalent about CRs; but maybe I'll forget in time and we'll try again.

Drinks and appetizers were very good and the service was excellent. Main course was where things went wrong. The tagliatelle primavera was very disappointing--that dish has absolutely no flavor at all. Scallops were over cooked. We love the atmosphere, drinks and service here and wished our entrees were better.

We were visiting NH for the first time. After viewing and seeing the rating of this place I was super hyped and excited for dinner for my fiancé birthday. But this place was such a huge huge disappointment. The staff were great, friendly and professional but the food was terrible. The worst food we have ever had, and trust me we eat out at least 2 times a week. We ordered the calamari, this was okay nothing to say except it was fried and my personal opinion anything fried will be eatable. Then for our entree we ordered the rare tuna. It said it came with fingerling potatoes. No one came to say anything and our meal was sweet potatoes, not just sweet potatoes, unsalted, tasteless sweet potatoes with a side of pickled cucumbers. For dessert we got the molten cake and the creme brûlée, I didn’t eat the cream brûlée despite it being my favorite dessert because the sugar was just powered over it and was soggy and tasted so bad. The molten cake was “okay” We don’t consume alcohol, and this was just everything we ordered and our bill was $120. This place is definitely overpriced for some dog food. There is no way on earth that person who cooked the food has ever held the title “Chef”. Don’t get carried away it’s only steps away from the hotel, this is the worst place I have ever been.

This is our first visit here. It was another road trip to go somewhere that we’ve never been. We were greeted by a very nice team of hostess. We made a reservation I suggest you do. The layout was very comfortable and inviting. We had a great server Rebecca who was on her game. The food was very good. The deserts were awesome as well. You know it’s refreshing when a manager comes by to see how our visit was. That is important! I recommend this restaurant. We will be going back.

We were planning to take out-of-town friends to CRs, but remembered that my brother had eaten there a month ago and said it had gone downhill. So we went there before our friends arrived to check it out. We were disappointed enough that we cancelled the reservation to take our friends. The room is lovely. We waited 20 minutes to get our drinks. Our server failed to inform us about the specials, and poured tap water without asking if we wanted sparkling. I ordered the Mushroom Gnocchi, which was exceptional. For the main course, my wife had the filet and I the Shrimp Saganaki. The filet was overcooked. The saganaki was good, but nothing to write home about. The wine I ordered was nice, a big pour. But I wish I could have enjoyed it with my main, not as I was finishing up. We got the desert menu, and I made a choice. But 15 minutes later when the server showed up, I was no longer interested. Not a good evening.

If you are in the seacoast area of New Hampshire CR’s is a must. Definitely one of the best restaurants in the seacoast from Portsmouth New Hampshire on up. What I like about this restaurant is the atmosphere is terrific and they do have different things on the menu not like a few of the typical Seacoast restaurants. Lovely bar and outside seating for lunch. I give this place five stars which is unusual for me. Little pricey but worth every penny.
