Great ambiance in this restaurant. A+. Friendly wait staff, cool jazz band (two guys) and fantastic food. Highly recommend it! We went for a Valentine's brunch, it was under $50 fr two of us. Right in the heart of Portsmouth--great if you are out for the day or just want a quiet easy, classy place to stop.

We often go to Rudi's ahead of a Music Hall program, because of the food, ambiance (we love the music), and proximity to the Music hall and the Parking Garage. Things were somewhat "off" service wise this time. Our friend who specifically asked to have NO onions on his burger and his salad, had to send them both back as both had onions. Our other friend, who was having a caesar salad and some soup, got the soup well after the salad. We usually have no complaints, but I said, things were "off", which made this visit less enjoyable than others.

My fiancé and I came here for Valentine’s Day. There was a live jazz band - music was great! We had the scallops and rack of lamb, both meals were amazing and cooked perfectly.

My wife and have been going to Rudi’s for a number of years now. The food, live music, and atmosphere never disappoint! This is a great place for a romantic evening out on the town, a special occasion, or to go with a group of friends for a nice dinner.
