French | Portsmouth, New Hampshire

First time visit. Picked it based on previous dinners feedback. Was not disappointed. Small and intimate atmosphere. Nice selection of wines by the glass fairly priced. Baked Brie app was excellent. For entrees, scallops and salmon and the steak au poivre were the winners. Dessert was The profiteroles. Service was knowledgeable, friendly and prompt. Looking forward to going back 😊 More

Seafood | Portsmouth, New Hampshire

They make high quality food but are a bit on the pricey side. We did not have oysters this time but they were good the last time. I had a salad with frisee that was a bit too large and both the asparagus and the carrots were cut too thin and too small to easily get with the fork. They did a nice job not overdressing the salad. The monkfish with spaetzle was very tasty but a bit heavy on the butter or oil. I would get it again. The restaurant was not crowded so the noise was not too bad. It was very noisy the last time I went. The waitstaff were all excellent. More

Japanese | Portsmouth, New Hampshire

We had a very nice dinner, My wife had a chicken and salmon teriyaki combo and she finished it all. She enjoyed it. Does not usually finish a whole meal. I had the sushi/sashimi combo. Fresh and generous slices of sashimi. Spicy tuna roll very good. When we got there I was concerned as they had live music. But it turned out to be great. Singer with guitar and a bass player. Perfect volume for the setting and played music form our era. Even Peter Gabriel! A talented duo. More

Italian | Portsmouth, New Hampshire

The food was well prepared and tasty. Wait staff attentive. I would rate Tuscan Kitchen a five and recommend to others but I think the experience there is over priced. My wife and I had simple meals and only one drink. The bill with tip came to $110. More

Contemporary American | Portsmouth, New Hampshire

Located directly in the center of charming Portsmouth NH, Ri Ra is housed in an old bank building. While converting the interior to a beautiful & cozy Irish pub, the gorgeous bones of the building remain. Service was fast & friendly. Food was wonderful - absolutely the best burger I have ever had anywhere. I don't make that claim lightly! More
