First time for brunch. Decision for trying was twofold; reviews, and the menu being a la carte instead of buffet. The Mrs had a mimosa, and French toast. Was pleased with both. I had the Irish Benedict. Hash was in house made and excellent. Service was a little lax, but it was brunch, and we were not in a hurry. Certainly not a complaint. Food and ambiance were worth the trip (hour drive), and Mrs wants to come back to try it for dinner.

Dining at Rudi's is always an enjoyable experience! We were there recently with another couple for NYE and began the evening at Rudi's wine bar for drinks prior to dinner. We were having such a great time that we decided to stay where we were for dinner. Service was attentive and everyone was very happy with their entrees and cocktails. Rudi's is always on our list of places we recommend in Portsmouth!

The evening was fantastic from the drinks, the ape, and the main meal. Service was excellent along with the live music. One of our favorite places in Portsmouth

This is a low-lit, cozy spot in a very elegant, old building. It is easy to get to, has available parking, and is pretty laid back. I often meet friends here to relax.

We loved this restaurant but it was just a bit too dark. I wished they had the lights up just a bit-otherwise the food was great and the waiter helped us with other restaurants near The Music Hall for the next night

Restaurant was quite cold and unfortunately so was the food. Dry cold mussels for me and a cold burger and fries for my daughter. At least my husband’s meat dish was warm and decent.

If I lived closer I might come again on a Friday eve just to enjoy a beer with a friend. The food was good. Mac N Cheese a bit too el dented and salmon over done for my taste but otherwise - good.
Apple crisp - amazing .... worth the hour drive for just that!
Service - excellent

We chose Rudi's because for a Sunday lunch, they had both breakfast and lunch items to choose from. The shrimp tacos were tasty as was the salmon burger. The service was quick and our waitress was attentive.
