Sat at the bar for a drink before our reservation. Good vibes. Service from waiter was not attentive and rushed. Food and drink was good!
Went there on Valentines Day. I was disappointed that we were seated in a side room that was far more casual and nowhere near as nice and vibrant as the main restaurant. We should have been told that’s where we’d be seated. I would’ve passed. Not a good start. The service was spotty and the food wasn’t great. Overcooked tuna and mushy lobster. With so many good places to eat in Portsmouth I’ll likely go elsewhere in the future.
Good and service was great. We were seated on time, staff was very friendly and our dining experience was enjoyable. We will be back in the summer so we can experience outside dining on the river.
Staff very accommodating!!
I called day before Valentine’s Day to change a reservation by adding an additional seat. Even though they were completely booked they found a way to make this request work!!
Excellent service by server and great food
Certainly will recommend to friends and Will return in the future!!
What a beautiful location right on the water. All the staff was very friendly. Our server was so friendly and knew the menu, especially the Valentines special menu.
Can’t wait to go back!!!
Our dinner was so amazing. I had the scallops with roasted vegetables in an unbelievable sweetish sauce. My husband had the seafood stew, also so delicious. We will definitely be coming there more often!!!! Beautiful evening.
Amazing food. Amazing ambience. Music not loud able so I was able to hear my date. I wouldn't change a thing.
Always a great time. Food and drinks are terrific as is the service!
Portions were TINY and food looked old. Considering the high price point, we were more than a little disappointed. Would never go back. Too many other great places to eat in Portsmouth to try again.
First time and really enjoyed.
The food was good it was very loud though
Our waiter was top notch
Very nice place with a lot of interesting history. Great water view and the lounge is great. What rose to the top was our server, Maria. She was full of energy and could't have been nicer !
I went to martingale with my 3 sons. They got me a gift card and had never been there. Food was delicious. Service great and the atmosphere was very pretty. I would go back in the summer and sit on the deck. Definitely recommend!!
My favorite restaurant in Portsmouth. Service was very attentive. The food was excellent as always. I highly recommend the lobster roll with a side of truffle fries. I get this each time I’m here. I haven’t been able to find a place that has a better lobster roll!!!
Good food, poor service. 30 minutes before drinks arrived. Didn’t get any better from there.
We had a great dinner at Martingale Wharf. The ambiance was perfect and we all enjoyed our dinners. It was the perfect kick-off to the holidays! We especially loved the soup and fresh oysters!
Girls holiday lunch, was awesome!
Great venue for a retirement luncheon. Staff was courteous
Ordinary selection of goodies at prices a bit too high. Ambiance is OK. Nice river view, though!
We are a group of old friends. We go every year. We always go to this restaurant...love the food and cocktails. The area is so beautiful this time of the year. We never leave unhappy.
Just wasn’t what I had expected
Kendra, our waitress, was fabulous!!!
Beautiful wether day so beautiful view of the waters. Nice decor inside. Lovely service although a bit on the slow slide. Not a place to go if you're in a rush. Good to enjoy the ambiance and company. Tasty food. Mussels were unique with dijon mustard - loved them. Burger, chicken entree, and kale salad all great too.
Waiter was unfriendly and did not provide great service. In addition, had a chip on the glass my cocktail was in and instead of replacing with a new cocktail the contents were poured into a new glass.
room was cold, food mediocre; prices high. don't mind paying for high priced food, but should be worth it. Server was very good.
We searched for an “upscale” restaurant for a holiday outing before a play with our family. The online photos and menu appeared to be a fancier establishment. Paper napkins, and over priced food for a filet that had a Demi glaze that tasted burnt. Was very disappointed on the experience and the food.
We’ve been there several times in past years and had a great experience. This time not so much. Service was slow, food and drinks overpriced for the quality. We won’t be back.
Great survive... amazing food... really beautiful atmosphere ❤️
Drinks are not very good menu is limited and $$
The server, Zack, was fantastic. The wait staff was helpful and very friendly. The food was very good. Muscle appetizer, seafood stew and salmon dinner, amazing desserts. I was just disturbed about the disposable napkins which create trash in the landfill while I’m eating a meal that’s $31 a plate. Literally, besides the napkins, I have no other complaints.
This was our 3rd visit to Martingale Wharf and each time I think it will get better, but it hasn’t. The view is awesome and we tend to eat on the early side to avoid noise so I said the noise level was quiet, but not the case at peak times. I ordered the Fish & Chips and there was no flavor to the fish - none. The batter was heavy but crisp and the fish was mushy. I wonder if it was previously frozen, not fresh at all. I don’t know what kind of fish the chef used but our waiter guessed Cod. Being from New England I think I know fish and this was not fresh or flavorful. Our waiter was attentive. We will not go back.
First time visitor with my wife. A Saturday night in early Nov. Book early. Nice ambiance and view. Kind server. Food was tasty - wish the seafood menu was a little more comprehensive. Street parking was not "easy" but not terrible either. Look forward to going back in Summer and dining out on what looked like a beautiful deck. Thanks Martingale.
Our food was delicious. Service was awesome. The waiter had a good and fun sense of humor and was super patient with two of our elderly guests eating dinner with us. The food was plated beautifully.
As always, food & service were great. Was a quiet Thursday lunch so not too busy.
Great service. All the food was prepared well.

Boyfriend's first time there for his birthday dinner and it could t have been better
Wonderful location. It would be great if they had heaters on the deck in addition to the fire pits.
Took 15min to order an appetizer and drinks. On a date and sat between two extremely loud tables of 6+ in a corner. We could barely have a conversation. Server was not very attentive. My date and I split calamari, each had a fillet and I added scallops and we split a creme brule and we were both still hungry.
