My wife and I stayed in Portland for a long weekend get-away. What a great city, with great music, art, and food not to mention the feeling this great old New England location leaves you with. We had our favorite dining experience at BODA. It's...More

Although the parking hassles and the crowds make Boda a challenge, it is worth the effort. Dinner last night started with a scallop shooter, yum! Next we're the crispy squid, a bit chewy and small for the price but a tasty sauce. Mains were Woon-sen...More

I was there only once, but it was memorable. We sat at the bar; there were also a couple stools available at the chef's station, where you could watch them work but it seemed they were only grilling the skewered meats there, not interesting. There's...More
