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.

We met some friends for dinner on a Saturday night and were very pleased with the overall experience. The food was delicious and the wait staff very attentive. We spent 3 hours over dinner and never felt like they wanted us to leave. Everyone got something different and we shared. I had the duck breast which was cooked perfectly and the sides complemented the overall meal. The consensus was that the scallops were the best choice. We had scallop appetizer and one person got the scallop dinner. The scallops were cooked to perfection and had a little sweet taste. We will definitely visit this restaurant again.

We had good food and great conversation in this relatively quiet restaurant. Perfect choice for sharing a travel experience.

Rudi’s has been in Portsmouth a long time. I hadn’t been there for a couple years & had always enjoyed their food. Food was very good. Wait staff was friendly & attentive. It was brunch on a Sunday. My friend & I enjoyed our experience. We’ll be back!

My visit was totally out of the blue with my boyfriend, but a great decision. The food was fantastic. I ordered the Irish Benedict and had to control myself to not lick my plate. I also ordered the Pink Grapefruitini was SO good. Our server, Karen, was fun and attentive without crossing any line (she let us enjoy our date). I loved the live music and can't wait to go again

My husband and I wanted a healthy low carb alternative for dinner and we had an excellent scallops appetizer, a delicious salad, an outstanding salmon filet over spinach, pancetta, pine nuts and grapes with a delicious drizzle, and then we had a yummy ricotta dessert with fresh decaf coffee. My husband had some scotch and service was good. Piano music in the background - what a lovely evening! Thank you, Rudi's...
