We ate in the bar area, so I cannot speak about the dining room tables, but the bar area was very friendly and homey. Great collection of 1900-1950's lamps offered the ambient lighting, although there were pendant lights over the bar, they were not in...More

We had not been to Katahdin in a couple of years and decided to give it a try for dinner before going to see "Lady Day" next door at Portland Stage. It exceeded all of our expectations. Food and service were wonderful and you can't...More

This chef is creative and talented. Flavor and texture sensations with every course. Seems to be Portland's best kept secret so far.

Always great food and service but it's the Bartender part owner that you've got to hang with! Lively and warm and conveniently located next to the Portland Stage Company.

Katahdin has been around for many years in this foodie city. I used to frequent them when they were located on the corner of High and Spring Streets. That was way back when they were affordable and offered a nightly "blue plate special." Those days...More

Terrific meal tonight (2/20) for all four of us. Our server Matt was upbeat and entertaining from the beginning; the cocktails were delicious! The "side car" addition to our drinks was a happy surprise! Then the tomato soup...heavenly! The salad greens were delicious, too. Our...More

Pros: Setting is warm, nicely lit, and inviting with an interesting layout and an appealing bar. Servers were friendly, knowledgable, and had good timing.
