Happy we arrived on the early side, as it filled quickly. And for good reason. It was very good! Beet salad with horseradish sauce and pistachios: excellent. Steak salad: excellent, liked the use of brisket in lieu of steak. All in all, a good spot...More

I read that Munjoy Hill was no longer the bad part of Portland and was quickly becoming the "it" spot, so decided to forgo lunch in the establishment Old Port and see what they had. Right down the street from the Observatory, the Blue Spoon...More

Small and cozy dinning room. Definitely make a reservation. Very friendly staff. Nice selection of local beer as well as bar offerings. Food was delicious. Very fresh and used the best local seasonal ingredients. Reasonably priced. Easy walking distance in nice Portland neighborhood.

My wife and I enjoyed this neighborhood gem based on a suggestion from our Airbnb host. We both ordered the cornmeal buttermilk pancakes with maple syrup/yogurt and loved them. I ordered 3 and my wife ordered 1. Unfortunately (for us), neither of us could finish...More

We came on a recommendation: food was tasty, but the outside tables were wobbly which made eating and drinking difficult and our service was a bit slow. Definitely a different taste of Portland.

It was a lovely warm September day so we ate outside at a sidewalk table. Our server was efficient and attentive but thankfully did not hover. Excellent mussels (though served in too much weak broth), a tasty beet salad with pistachios, and a chocolate pot...More

I only visited that one time and we had a male server whose name was not Bri. Regardless, the place was really great and our visit could not have been better.
