fine dining rehersal dinner suggestions in portsmouth or close by

Hi All,

I am a San Francisco hound getting married in North Hampton this July. I am responsible for booking our rehearsal dinner. We are a group of 11 total and are really looking for fine dining options - hopefully with a private dining area. I was directed to the Wellington room, but they are closed on the day of the dinner. We will be staying in Portsmouth, but anywhere in the surrounding seacoast area will work. I was considering the library, but have read some frightening reviews on this board, which is making me nervous. Please help!

Thanks in advance.

  1. What about the Black Trumpet?
    You could reserve the upstairs wine bar.
