Two-Fifty Market Ratings and Reviews
We had a window seat on a very busy and cold New Year's Eve. The meals we ordered off the menu were simple meals, not gourmet, but were very well prepared and presented. On top of that the food was good. Both our drinks and our meals were brought to our table very promptly. The service was excellent. This made it easy for us to just to enjoy ourselves and the evening.
I ordered the mussels and the salmon and was very pleased with both. The mussels were such a good sized portion, I could have just had them as a meal with a salad and did end up taking half the salmon home.
One slight mar: when we came in my brother asked whether we could sit by the window and the hostess said that was reserved. When he said we also had reservations, she responded that it was a "special" party to which he responded "well we're special too!" I would chalk it up to her lack of experience in the hospitality industry as I am sure she did not intend to be rude.
Heartily recommend the mussels.
Though this was a nice place, we really didn't enjoy the food much. We ordered from the restaurant week menu and just didn't care for any of it except the dessert, which was very tasty. The waitress was attentive and overall the space was very beautiful. Perhaps regular menu items are better.
Years ago when this was the Sheraton Harborside restaurant, it was classy - white linen tablecloths, food plated artistically. Not so much now. No tablecloths, chunky-style wooden tables, some decor from HomeGoods, plates serving just the food, no embellishment. The food was good, but the experience wasn't great.
Service staff was professional. Everything else was poor. We left meatballs on the plate when ordered for appetizers! Even the spinach salad was odd and served with pickled green beans and pickled cauliflower.
Mother's Day can be a challenge for any restaurant. If yesterday was any measure, this place is up to the challenge. We had a last minute change in number of guests, no problem. We were seated a little early but never felt that there was any issue. Water served immediately with assurance that we should take our time ordering. The cocktails were delicious as was the Prosecco. The vegetarian options suited some of our party while the seafood and red meat selections were welcomed by others. Desserts were made in house and the effort showed. All in all a delightful experience. If there is any downside to this place it is the view which varies from a pleasant view of the working harbor to a mountain of salt. I guess it depends on the season. Anyway, there is no reason to let that stop you from a relaxing, delightful meal.
We were a party of 13 adults and 4 children...three of which were under the age of three. The waitstaff were so accommodating and friendly. Nothing flustered them. A bit chaotic at times with the little ones but staff always smiling and helpful. Food was delicious. Would definitely recommend for any event or for a great meal.
Your reservation system worked beautifully, even after I added four more to the party of eight.
The reservation system at the Two Fifty Market restaurant was a bit screwy. Once the first party arrived the reservation disappeared from paperwork at the restaurant podium so the remaining eight of us were bounced around a bit. Service was good as was the food. Since it was a fixed price meal we were every disappointed to be charged $3.00 a cup for self-serve coffee. But all in all a good time. Folks came from Bangor, Augusta, and Brunswick to meet the NH family members.
We came here somewhat last minute for New Years Eve, as our original plans had fallen through. We had been able to get tickets to a comedy show taking place at the Sheraton, and so 250 Market was a natural choice to have dinner at beforehand.
The food was good. We had an appetizer and entree, no dessert, and several drinks. The drinks were good and had some fun varied options. We got the nachos to start, which were good but didn't have a lot of pork on them, and then I had the chicken and my husband had the steak. Both were good, no complaints.
My only real 'issue' with the place was the service. We were mostly served by the host as they appeared to be short staffed. We did have a rather grim woman come over and take drink orders from us twice, as well as offer us dessert, but she never told us her name nor confirmed that she was actually our server, so we were never really sure who to look to if we needed something. It led to things like having to wait a long time to order and never getting our water refilled. Not the end of the world, but given how much money we were spending, it was annoying.
Also - although this wasn't an issue for us - the restaurant is essentially in the lobby of the Sheraton. It's kind of tucked away, but its not a private room. I didn't find it to be overly noisy and actually enjoyed the people watching, especially because everyone was dressed up for NYE, but I can see where it might have been distracting if we were expecting or wanting a quieter or more private dinner.
Bottom line - if we found ourselves attending another show at the hotel, we would not hesitate to eat at 250 Market again.
Very pleasantly surprised. The reviews looked good but the fact that it's
a hotel restaurant left us wondering. Well, wonder no more!!!
The food was outstanding....it's a small area combined with the bar venue.
We were there for the Christmas Day prix fix and we had really great choices
and everything was done to perfection. The service is great and everyone is friendly.
We took advantage of Restaurant Week and ordered form the lunch menu. My husband and I both had the Clam chowder to start and it was excellent. My husband ordered the bratwurst burger and I had the grilled ham and dill havarti. We also had the Cranberry apple crisp for dessert. We both enjoyed our meal. Our server was very pleasant. We would return for another meal.
Wonderful in all ways. The atmosphere perfect, with water views, soft lighting and comfortable seating. The food was amazing, especially the Beet Salad with Goat cheese and Champagne Vinaigrette. The cocktails were creative and beautifully presented. Many thanks to Phoebe Smart, who we were fortunate to have as our server. She was attentive, knowledgeable and caring.
250 market provided exceptional customer service. I was entertaining a group of 12 people, and the waitress was spot on The waitstaff showed just enough attention, while not interrupting the networking event. I look forward to having another gathering there in the future.
Thank you to our pleasant and most accommodating server, Randy. He was great, the breakfast food was delicious and plentiful.
Being a life long native of the City of Portsmouth, frequent organizer of our local high school prom, it was a pleasure to have actually been a customer and enjoy the experience.
Thank you so much
Planned a get together for myself and 3 friends who had never been to town before and just wanted something cozy and scenic so we could enjoy some drinks and talk.
This place was perfect, the seating was comfortable our server Susan was a delight, the food was good and drinks were also good.
The view isn't as breathtaking as the hotel's website would lead you to believe, so if this is your main reason to come, you might want to check out one of the places on Bow Street, but we were able to stroll in here on a gorgeous Saturday at 4pm and have no problems.
Expensive for just average food. Service was poor. We did not get anything except our initial order without flagging the waiter down.
Very loud and not separated from the hotel lobby at all. Temperature was inconsistent due to the proximity of the front door. Would not return under any circumstances. Much better choices around the city.
The worst dinner out I have had in a very long time. I'm not going to nitpick and give all the details of why we did not enjoy the food, trust me when I say it def left something to be desired.
The real kicker was when my date and I were done with our first round of drinks (dark and stormys) we placed the glasses on the edge of the table. The waiter came back to the table, filled the empty cocktail glasses with ice water, placed them back In front of us, and then took off with out asking if we wanted another drink. Nah I'm cool bro, no longer thirsty because I have this ice water that kind of tastes like Myers rum to quench my thirst.
While planning a drive to Maine we decided Portsmouth was the best place to stop for dinner with my 2-year-old daughter. I made a reservation at 250 Market due to its proximity to I-95 and was very happy with our experience there, particularly the staff's help in wrangling a toddler with a lot of pent-up energy to burn after being strapped in the car seat for hours.
