We received an email the day of our reservation that it couldn't be honored because the restaurant had closed. So disappointed as it's one of our favorites! (Ratings based on prior experiences.)

This was our second time at Savory Square Bistro and we enjoyed it very much, from the drinks (a blueberry martini which was very interesting), the charcuterie board and the entrees (Shrimp Scampi, Chicken Bacon Dijon, Norwegian Salmon Pasta). Topped off by a creme brûlée which we shared. The wine list is reasonable and we enjoyed a NY Riesling which rivaled many a German one. The prices are reasonable and we would go back any time.

We were disappointed with the food. The beet and goat cheese salad had a bare scant of cheese. The Cesar and scallop salad had two large scallops that were not cooked enough in the center. The asparagus tart was boursin cheese spread over a couple of pieces of puff pastry, then a few pieces of asparagus dropped on top.

We enjoy this place as it is quiet, has great food and the service is outstanding. We went with friends this night and we had a great time.We all enjoyed what we ordered. I had the Steak au poivre with frittes and broccoli and the steak was tender and cooked just as ordered. Highly recommend this restaurant for anyone who enjoys quiet meals and good food.

Dinner was excellent in every respect. Service was attentive but unrushed. Cocktails were just right. A great place to eat!

There were 2 in my party, the other being at SSB for the first time. He REALLY enjoyed it and even mentioned returning before September. The food was fab and the waiter was great. We were NOT rushed thereby we could enjoy our appetizer, drinks and chat as we needed to catch up.

In the past when I've sat AT the bar, I found it very hard to "eat my meal" there, as had to sit sideways on the bar stool. There doesn't seem to be much knee space when sitting there, but would definitely stop in for drinks and not hesitate to sit at the bar. Otherwise, we just grab a table in the lounge to listen to the entertainment.

A VERY nice place in the center of Hampton.

Started with the red Sangria & the beer flight; very nice.
We shared the crab cakes. Excellent appetizer! Crispy & full of crabmeat.
One had fish & chips & one had the beef tenderloin sandwich; recommend both. Fish was done to perfection and fries were delicious. Tenderloin was fork tender in a tasty gravy.
Our only regret was the mango crepe for dessert. Some mango pieces were hard & underripe, and there was hardly any juice in this dish. We would have liked more juice and more ripe fruit. Came with a nice fresh whipped cream and a sprig of mint...nice touch.
Service was friendly, knowledgeable and speedy.
We will be back soon.

A wonderful anniversary experience. We were seated at a cozy corner table and greeted nicely by the owner and staff. We sampled a number of items including the calamari, poutine, grilled BLT salad and steak au poivre and were blown away by the quality and flavor. Service and cocktails were top notch and we were even given complimentary champagne for our special day with glasses to take home. A truly great meal and experience... We'll be back soon!

My husband and I love this restaurant so we chose it for my birthday. It did not disappoint. The wine selection is finely tuned. The menu selection is reminiscent of gourmet meets French bistro. It has the classics with a creative twist. This restaurant is exceptional for cuisine. The service was very attentive and friendly by all staff. Perfection is in the details here. The staff went beyond expectation and also gifted me with three small jars of their exceptional condiments just because it was my birthday. We will be back over and over again.

This is a great neighborhood spot many locals go to. Great at the bar as well with music on the weekends. Our food was excellent however the service was a bit slow. It did not really matter as we had no where to go and great company and conversation

A positive experience at the Bistro. The service was excellent and efficient and the entrees did not disappoint. Although my wife suggested the risotto was a bit too cheesy, my steak was cooked to order and very good. The fries with the steak suggested informality however they were good. Will certainly return.

Visit very often during summer months. Always with friends, and have never been disappointed. Food is freshly made, always good flavors and a generous serving. A favorite is Seafood Portifino! Entertainment in the lounge is fun too! Look forward to the next visit!

I had been to Savory Bistro a couple of years ago and it was very good. We were the only ones in the dining room on a Saturday night 6:45 PM and no one came in after us. The bar had a good crowd and the music was very good that we could hear. I will not be going back.
We used to go to the Beach House which was always good owned by the same people.
