  • We held a welcome celebration for about 90 guests at the Surf Room. As we live about 500 miles from Portsmouth, we only had one face-to-face meeting with the staff of the Surf Room to plan the event. Everything else was done by e-mail or phone which worked out fine. The entire event was a great success. The food and drink was excellent and the venue was everything we could have hoped for. All in all, the Surf Room and its events manager Kris Gaudreau exceeded our expectations.

  • The venue was beautiful - from the pressed linens that layered the tables and high tops to the spectacular harbor view through the floor to ceiling glass windows. Spectacular! Thank you, Kris, for your help making the rehearsal dinner such a great success. The guests were raving about the food well into the next day. Please tell Chef we said, “thank you” for accommodating our menu choices. Kris, you made sure that the cocktail hour, dinner and dessert ran seamlessly; so much so that I was able to fully enjoy the guests; I felt like a guest and not a host thanks to you. Please thank the 4 servers/bartenders, 3 of which I can remember by name: Sara, Charlie and Sampson. I can’t remeber the 4th but I remember him weaving between the guests serving drinks and appetizers. We couldn’t have asked for a better start to a wonderful wedding weekend.

  • We held our son's rehearsal dinner at Surf and couldn't have chosen a more perfect venue! We started with a wonderful cocktail hour, followed by dinner and then opened up to family and friends in town for dessert and drinks. Kris was extremely helpful in the planning of the event and the staff was amazing. I can't tell you how many people came up to me the next day, at the wedding!, saying how much fun they had!

  • We had our wedding reception at The Surf Room in Portsmouth. Kris and her team are truly amazing. From the first contact, Kris was nothing but responsive, accommodating and helpful. Anything we asked for, she would simply say "oh yeah, we can do that". She made every detail about the planning and execution absolutely perfect. The décor and backdrop of the surf room is beautiful and the view from the room is breathtaking. It was the perfect spot for our beach wedding. Due to rain, we had to move the ceremony of our wedding indoors and Kris saved us by accommodating everyone and allowing us to move it inside to the Surf Room. Without hesitation, she agreed and seamlessly made our day perfect. The cocktail hour food displays were incredible, there was so much food and every bite was delicious. There was not one person who was not raving about the quality and perfection of the food. The service was impeccable and the staff were friendly, professional and so nice!! We could not ha...

  • I've worked with Kris at The Surf Room for an annual event two years in a row and I'm sure we'll be back for a 3rd! The location is great and the food is absolutely a step (or two!) above the rest, but The Surf Room really shines when it comes to service. Our first year at this venue went off without a hitch and I felt like the staff was always one step ahead of me and for our second event there I made a mistake with the start time and didn't realize it until 3 hours prior to when guests were supposed to arrive. Nevertheless, Kris said it wouldn't be a problem and everything was ready to go an hour early....lifesaver!

    Thank you Julie for the kind words. We were excited that your group returned a second time for your event. Hope to see you again next year!!

  • Our wedding reception was all that we had hoped for! The food was wonderful, and friends and relatives continue to talk about the amazing dessert table. The venue is impressively scenic and the staff extremely professional. Kris was accommodating and flexible, and a pleasure to work with. I can only hope that I am invited to an event at The Surf Room so I can relax and enjoy!

  • I got married on 6/30/2018 and hosted a rehearsal dinner at the Surf Room on 6/29. It has been a truly exceptional evening. The venue itself is gorgeous, high-end with stunning views. But it's not enough to make such occasion an unforgettable experience. This is where Kris and her team stepped in and made this evening absolutely amazing. The food, service and execution were phenomenal. Kris was so helpful, thorough and understanding. She stayed with us throughout the evening and helped us with the flow of the evening. All guests loved the food and views of the venue. The hit of the evening were Aperol spritzers that were perfect for a summer evening. I enjoyed working with Kris and highly recommend her and Surf Room for your events. We are truly grateful for Kris and her team for making this evening so special.

  • Great venue, ambiance, food and service! As we looked back at the event (rehearsal dinner) no one said anything like, "It was great except for . . . " or "Wonderful, with the exception of . . . ". The room is beautiful and up-to-date, the service was excellent and the food was truly outstanding.
