For real. We enjoy great food as much as the next but we also send 100's of people each summer to great eateries based on our experience.... this place was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! We enjoyed (and devoured mind you) the fried pickles, beets, shark bites, pork belly,...More

"American tapas" is how they market this restaurant -- a good description. Plates are small, so you should order multiples to ensure everyone at the table has a taste. Service was good, and the dishes arrived in a staggered fashion rather than all at once....More

Friendly and knowledgeable bartenders with the owner working the bar. Good wine selection. Clean bathrooms. Try the Cask Strength Makers Mark

Stopped here with friends and enjoyed most everything. Quality was right on and felt the portions just a bit small. This place has a great vibe and service was perfect.

How did I not know about this place? Small plates, all amazing. A continental tapas, if you will. Every dish was unique, especially the rarebit and the short rib. Calamari was excellent but not so different than you can get elsewhere, but that was the...More

Great for couples or friends, not for little children. New England Dinner 2.0 was absolutely delicious. Sizes were perfect for our date night and sharing!

Moxy is a restaurant. The Sheraton is one of the many lovely hotels in Portsmouth. Please re-read the various reviews. I am a visitor to Portsmouth, not a business owner there
