We gave this restaurant a shot despite its reviews, we believe any great restaurant can have a bad day and shouldn't be judged on one experience. We made the trek to Portsmouth without disappointment. The food, drink and service were great. I had the short ribs, the best thing I think I have ever put in my mouth. My wife had the plaintain encrusted grouper, which was also very good. The beer selection was one of the best I have seen around, filled with local and microbrewed beers. For dessert we shared the layers of love, a layered mousse cake thing, the second best thing I ever put in my mouth. While dining we noticed the staff joking around but also helping each other with their tables. You can tell that they enjoy working here which showed in our service. Our waitress was very friendly and outgoing not the typical robot service you often run into while dining out. Overall a great experience, give them a shot.
