Located in Portsmouth, New Hampshire’s historic Strawberry Banke, Mombo is a fun, high-end restaurant right by Prescott Park and the Piscataqua River. The interior has a very cozy, casual feel with wooden beams running across the ceiling. The staff are both warm and inviting. However, the menu at Mombo is what really steals the show. There is the homemade charcuterie which was chosen by Yankee Magazine as the best in all of New England. There are also plenty of meat and poultry options to choose from, too. When the weather is nice, you can sit on the patio at Mombo and enjoy a unique seasonal menu.

    We had chosen Mombo for dinner and were rewarded with a great decision. The restaurant was lively, the service was excellent. The menu was varied and the food was outstanding. We will return again and bring friends.

    This was our second dinner at Mombo and we were equally pleased with the food and service. My fiance and I even planned to have our rehearsal dinner at the restaurant. The service is exceptional and I can't say enough about the delicious food and drink. I highly recommend Mombo for dinner, drinks, and a wonderful evening!

    Traveled from Boston on an overnight in Portsmouth...what a great surprise! One of the better restaurants I have been to in a while. Atmosphere was wonderful, two fire places, open kitchen and friendly staff. Only thing better was the food! A truly excellent experience. Very well done.

    Blazing fireplaces, friendly yet professional service from the moment we arrived and were lead to our table in the corner. The food was amazing, from the bread board with several warm offerings, to the main course. I had the duck which was perfectly cooked, probably the best duck dish I have ever enjoyed. All 4 of us agreed to frequent this restaurant more. Right next to downtown, with parking--no less. Go skating, then walk over and let them treat you to something great to eat.

    The food was very good, and the service was fine. The pricing was steep however . Sides are sold separately and were not generously proportioned. My total bill for one person (3 of us shared a bottle of $32 wine) was $58. Dining room was so loud that we could not converse- and the place was mostly empty because it was a stormy night. There are many, many fine restaurants in Portsmouth with better food, a quieter dining room for a more reasonable price.

    Our 1st visit fell short of our expectations, with an 8:30 open table reservation we arrived a early after taking to Tom on the phone about the possibility of an earlier sitting or a short wait at the bar, but the bar area was full. A open table in a corner was offered us, it was the equivalent to a cocktail table with little space with a corner bench adjacent to the bar. The bread board had to also hold our wine bottle. Items had to be removed to make room for the next offering. It was disappointing to watch couples arrive after us be seated at a std. size dining table. The bar patrons were loud, which made for a much too loud atmosphere. The entrees were good not great, scallops were perfectly cooked, but the plate did not compliment them. The osso bucco was a tough piece of meat. Getting a table in the upper level or away from the bar is strongly recommended. I find it a bit overrated.

    Outstanding Food! Service was excellent! Went their for my birthday and it was our first time at this restaurant. Will definitely return. If anything was wrong it was that the table we wanted was next to the fireplace which is right near the bar. Their is a energetic bar scene but the food and service made up for the noise. It wasn't too crazy but the seat we had was not the romantic table setting we were hoping for. We will go back but will choose a table on the second floor.

    We were in the Portsmouth area for a girls' weekend over Martin Luther King weekend and had a wonderful winter meal at Mombo. The hit of the evening was a roasted acorn squash bisque with a braised short rib marmalade with almonds. Other high marks were for the beet salad -- artistically presented and delicious. Grilled swordfish was great, as was the veal osso buco. Our server was attentive and quite knowledgeable about the menu. The atmosphere was perfect for a very cold evening -- fireplaces, wood beams, warm and inviting. We all agreed we would come back!

    Setting and service made for an enjoyable evening. Food disappointing, simple roasted chicken passable, salad was strange and unappealing. I would try again but be more selective.
