We were celebrating a promotion and for all special occasions we come to CR"s. They did not disappoint. My only slight criticism is that the Veal chop was a little more done that as ordered. I ordered medium rare and it was more a medium but still delicious. My companions Salmon was cooked perfectly and she loved it. Overall very good as always!

Service was great. Lobster wontons awesome. Not a fan of the halibut. Drinks were great and dessert too. Can't wait to go back.

Sunday brunch is always special. Regretting that it will take a break after Father's Day!

Charlotte did a wonderful job waiting on our table, and Tonia is always gives us a warm welcome when we visit. We feel like were among family.

We’ve been to this restaurant for our last two anniversary dinners (our 43rd and 44th). The atmosphere is charming though maybe a little too loud for romantic dining. There was live music and it made conversation difficult for my old ears to understand. My filet was cooked perfectly and the al dente asparagas had just the right amount of crunch. My wife was a little disappointed with her dinner selection. She had the boulliabase seafood dinner. It was not supposed to have calamari but it did come with two tentacles. I love the beef here and my wife has usually enjoyed her seafood choices. We’ll still be back just not with such high expectations.

We love CR's! It is close by to where we live and is consistently excellent! Staff always attentive and professional. Food selections offer something for everyone. Wood burning fireplace sets the mood nicely. Great bar scene and live music.

Had a wonderful Mother's Day lunch. Special menu was excellent with so many great choices. It is an auspicious beginning for the new senior chef! I chose the salmon poached in parchment paper, accompanied by various vegetables. It was great and I would heartily recommend that it remain on the regular menu.
Service, as always, was terrific. Very attentive and responsive, but not hovering.
The restaurant is a jewel, and we are fortunate to have such a delightful dining spot on the seacoast. Chuck and his crew are real professionals.

Love the ambience and the server was excellent. We where disappointed with the coconut shrimp, they where slightly overcooked. Also ordered the filet mignon (med.rare), it was cooked properly but was not tender, considering it was a tenderloin. My husband ordered the special, which was swordfish, I thought the serving was thin and small, with an small amount of carrots. My first experiences at CR's where great, this time it was not the case.

First time eating at this restaurant. I thought the atmosphere was good but I kind of expected it to be more like the original CR Sparks restaurant that was in Bedford NH and that we LOVED. It was nothing like that. We all thought the food was just ok but not worth the price. Probably won’t be back.

This has become out "go to" restaurant. We have found it to be excellent on every visit. Great cocktails, and menu selection for a fine meal. I am personally partial to the veal chop, which is cooked to my exact preference every time. We will return shortly for our 48th Aniversary.

While my wife has had great meals at CR's, this last visit was an exception, for both of us. Both of our meals were overcooked, and likely were not served immediately as vegetables were lukewarm. I had to return my Filet as it was both overcooked and very dry. My wife was more forgiving, and perhaps slightly embarrassed for raving about past meals at CR's; her chicken was overdone to the point that it was dry, as well. She ate it anyway.

The File that I received on the return trip from the kitchen was cooked to Medium, rather than Medium-Rare, but was juicy. Unfortunately, the sides that I received on the second go were skimpy. But, they were hot as expected.

We booked our reservations through the OPEN TABLE app and it appears our "special request notes" regarding a birthday dinner and request for reservation for booth seating never got through to the restaurant. We still love the place! We will be back. Might be best to contact the restaurant directly to reconfirm they received special requests!

Tried this restaurant for Restaurant Week, but the portions were small. Also, the bread was removed prior to the main course being served which was odd. My husband asked to stop at a drive through on our way home since he was still hungry :(

What dining used to be. Quiet and attentive but unobtrusive servers, warm, comfortable atmosphere, full House, but no carrying of noise from other guests. Private, intimate, fine dining out of the ordinary for the general location.
