This Mediterranean style restaurant is located on Commercial Street, down near the Portland Wharf. Tiqa is beautifully decorated and there were many enticing items on the luncheon menu from which to choose. We started off with the appetizer plate with humus, stuffed grape leaves, eggplant dip, olives, and wonderful slices of pickled carrots- all yummy. The lentil and rice salad was delicious, topped with fried scallions, which really made the dish. The lamb kebab was good, but not extraordinary. Nice wines and beers are available too. The service was excellent but the overall price tab was a bit high we thought. But then again, when do we get a chance to go to a Mediterranean restaurant!

The restaurant is located in the old commercial waterfront in a new building in which the upper floors are a Marriott.

The menu has a godd variety of food and the waitress was knowledeable about the food and its preparation. The menu includes some vegan fare as well. The homemade bread served with oil an spices is very good.

The desserts don't measure up to the other menu items.

The wine list is limited but has a good variety.

The restaurant decor is contempoary and very well done.

The food was excellent, good variety and flavors. Our complaint was that some dishes were quite small, for example the chicken was 2 skewers on some greens, more of an appetizer than a main. The clam pasta was tasty but not many clams. The roasted chicken was a big meal.

The service was excellent and the interior design was modern and up to date.

This is a fabulous restaurant. The valet parking is a HUGE time saver. We sat at the counter and watched the talented baker and pastry chef create masterpieces that were so delicious! The staff are VERY polite and truly interested in what you need. The hostess led the memorable evening with her polite answer to our phone call seeking parking options. This is a keeper. The owner sought us out knowing it was our first time dining at his restaurant.

They have a wonderful Sunday Brunch menu, with plenty of interesting breakfast choices plus a series of small plates that can be ordered. The meals were well prepared and delicious. But it took the food about 40 minutes after ordering to come out...a little long for a 5-star rating.

I had the 2-Eggs Any Style (Over hard) with Potatoes and a roasted tomato. My wife had a series of small plates including the Brussels Sprouts. The coffee was wonderful too.
