Diner Reviews
  • "A pleasent evening with great food and wine on a summer evening"
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "We dined on the screened porch where there was ample space between tables and very attentive servers. On cooler evenings the interior tables are in a beautiful restored victorian home. The food was excellent. My husband had a very generous portion of chicken parmesan and I enjoyed the chicken marsala. The pasta was just OK, nothing special, therefore the 4 stars instead of 5. The arugula salad and the ceasar salad were outstanding! I would recommend arriving early and having a martini at the bar before dinner. This is a great place for a special evening out!"

  • "My wife and I were in town on a Monday night on business. The calamari purgatorio was overcooked and chewy, the tomato sauce tasted too much like tomato paste for me(my wife was ok with it) and the risotto tasted as if it was made with a rice other than the typical "arborio" type and was not at all al dente. Maybe it was simply way overcooked. The desserts were good and the martinis were very good."

  • "This restaurant is located in bucolic Bethel, Maine. My wife and I went there for dinner twice. It is in an old restored house with a veranda. We ate both times on the veranda. The first night we ate highly recommended stapes on the menu. They were both excellent. The second I had the same dish I previously had and my wife ordered a scallops special. They were inedible with spices that buried the delicate taste of the scallops. The owner quickly replaced the dish with another. The chef was told to change the dish and I was told by our waitress that subsequent dishes came out much improved."

  • "Lemontini was excellent! I was hoping for a piece of fish- but they don't have much for fish on the menu. In the past they have had nice fish specials. This time it was scallops, which I don't care for. So I tried the Chicken Marsala and it was very good. They offer a dinner salad for about $3.50 which I think is nice. The salad is good and although it is small, it is plenty before the meal. My husband had chicken parm and he enjoyed that as well. We had a very nice evening there."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "What a great place. The bar, drinks and bartender ( Mike) were great. Our table on the porch was nice. The food was amazing! The service was great ( Host and Shanta). We will be returning customers!"
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "My husband and I do frequent this place, but we actually decided to celebrate our Anniversary here. At first we thought because it was so familiar, we wouldn't feel the romance, but we were wrong! We requested a porch table and got it. The owners were very gracious and Mike the bartender is great! The food was exquisite and our 22 vodka, with hint of blueberry, martini was superb! We even had front row seats to music on the Bethel Common. We will be back soon as 22 Broad St. is our favorite find in this area. Thank you Amy and John!"

  • "Love this place. Food is excellent, but the tomato sauce is outstanding. Real "home cooked" flavor...so delicious! Our first experience wasj last year when on vacation in Bethel Maine. So good we were determined to return and were equally delighted. Would have liked a more extensive choice of wine and dessert...but will return whenever we are in the area!"

  • "We went to celebrate my wife's birthday. Had dinner on the porch for the first time and it was very nice. The porch and house are beautifully done. Very elegant and the service and food was excellent."

  • "Another enjoyable dining experience at 22 Broad St.. All aspects of the evening met expectations. Weather was perfect for the porch and it was great to reacquaint with all after their spring break."

  • "Great dining spot directly across the street from Bethel Inn. Food was excellent! Would be sure to go back when in the area."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "So many good reviews but not for us. The salad was good. Then both entrees were problematic-we had send back both and reorder: a ribeye that was this gristly, thin piece of meat (and one very undercooked). Inedible. After reordering different entrees those weren't right either: one undercooked (again!) and the second was not what we ordered ( a misunderstanding I guess--just gave up at that point in trying to make it right). Chocolate dessert was just ok. Coffee very good. The martinis are very good, too--they advertise as a martini bar, I think. The ambiance was lovely. I don't know that we will come back given the food issues, but we might give it another try. Maybe ordering something else would help. Or just come for drinks."

  • "We go out for lunch more frequently than dinner, but when we want a great dinner out, or when we are entertaining guests, this is our first choice. My son, who recently moved "back east" , came to visit and we had a delicious dinner this week at 22 Broad. It was a pleasure to watch my son and his girlfriend enjoy and "pig out" on appetizers (clams, sorry, don't know the correct name the very thinly sliced beef dish) then the main meal. We all enjoyed the evening very much and they admired the building. Thank you, we'll be back soon."

  • "Requested and were seated at quiet table for 2. Very attentive service offered in a caring, but not insincere of over the top manner. Nice menu choices. Very good food including in house made pasta & bread. Owner came to our table to help with wine choice. Overall very nice experience."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Love this place. Food was excellent and they make a great cocktail."

  • "22 Broad is our favorite spot for fine dining. No special occasion is complete without a trip to 22 because we know for certain that the staff and owners will be warm & friendly and that the food will be excellent -- no matter what menu choice is made. Additionally we love the cozy unrushed pace where one can savor each course and linger over wine or aperitifs. We have been to 22 many times and have never been disappointed -- DEE-lish!"
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "Delicious Italian food in a very nice cozy atmosphere. The eggplant lasagna and the lobster fettuccine was delicious!"
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "We booked this restaurant based on Trip Advisor's reviews and were not disappointed. Chuck was our waiter and he struck just the right balance between being attentive, funny and excellent at what he does. The food was delicious, the atmosphere perfect after a day of skiing with a real fire in the fireplace in the room that we were seated in. The bar area got a little noisy and the staff simply closed the door between the bar and the dining room and order was magically restored. It will definitely be on our list of restaurants to visit again and again!"

  • "stuffed mushroom appetizer and beef braciole dinner. A winning combination. Yummy"
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "Arrived at 8 on a Saturday, it was, as always, busy. Wine delivered was not what was ordered, but it was excellent anyway and they kept the price fair... Food was excellent, but service is slow. Left at close to 11.. We have been to 22 Broad many times and it is consistently good, but slow. Probably the best food and martinis in Bethel.. I am assuming the kitchen has a certain capacity and the chef does not compromise quality for speed. We will be back.... :-)"

  • "When we spend the week at Sunday River there are lots of restaurants to choose from. 22 Broad St is our favorite!"
    Dined on 3/6/2014
  • "22 Broad Street offered a quiet, adult experience in a cozy old home, complete with a crackling fire. We started with the Calamari Purgatorio - a definite step above the typical breaded and fried calamari. The Crispy Eggplant Lasagna was outstanding; it did indeed feature wonderfully thin slices of crispy eggplant. The lamb shank was very good, tender and falling off the bone, but exactly what one would expect. Dinner was complemented by wine from their nice selection. We were warmly welcomed by the hostess and well served by our waiter. Reservations are suggested. We were there on a Wednesday evening in March and they were completely booked. On our next visit we will definitely sample the martini's - nice bar and exciting menu."

  • "I would absolutely return. It is one of the best in Sunday River."
    Dined on 3/3/2014
  • "Our first impression of 22 Broad Street was how pretty the restaurant is. The ambience is warm and lovely. Service was friendly and efficient. My daughter and I had the cod which was excellent. I would highly recommend 22 Broad Street"
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "We went to 22 Broad while on a ski weekend at Sunday River. Food was great, atmosphere excellent in historic house. Great place to get away from the mountain and enjoy a special dinner."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "The space is gorgeous and cozy. Salad & specialty cocktail were excellent. However, the Haddock Oreganato was a disappointment. It was over cooked & dry. My guest had the same and thought the same. I was visiting from CO, (there are not excellent fish dishes in CO) and was so looking forward to wonderful fish. Did not get it here, unfortunately."

  • "Great food , efficient service and beautiful surroundings make for a great dining experience ."
    Dined on 2/25/2014
  • "My husband and I were in the Bethel area for vacation and I was looking for a romantic, upscale spot to celebrate a belated Valentines Day dinner. I found 22 Broad Street online and the reviews looked promising, as did the details on the website. It was great to be able to book through Open Table, as well. Considering we went there site unseen, we couldn't have been happier with our dining experience. The atmosphere was rustic, "old New England" charm, and we were fortunate to be seated right next to the fireplace. The food was amazing, as were the wine and cocktail list, and the prices were appropriate to the quality of the food. I would highly recommend 22 Broad Street to anyone looking for a unique dining experience in Bethel."

  • "Very romantic, busy evening. Food was perfect and not rushed. The staff was working very hard and kept everyone happy. The perfect place to relax with your date and enjoy the well decorated home. Will absolutely return."

  • "We really enjoyed the experience.....only complaint would be a very flat pasta sauce . Really needs improving!!"

  • "We love 22 Broad. Great intimate bar and dining. Wonderful ambiance and nice and warm after a day on the slopes."

  • "If it is a cold winters day/night avoid sitting on the porch. When door opens it gets very cold quickly."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "The good is hearty and delicious. Italian based, many dishes are traditional. Others are inventive. The house ravioli special looked divine and was reported by one of my party to be excellent. The spicey roast beef dish was unique and tasty, so said another at our table. He is a great cook himself so his thumbs up is acreal compliment. My eggplant lasagne was creamy, crusty and savory. The many signature drinks make this restaurant feel a bit more urban than you would expect. The atmosphere is cozy, the setting quaint."

  • "Yummmm! Actually went twice while we were here. In an old home with several small rooms for diners and another for the bar area."

    Dined on 1/26/2014
  • "We really enjoyed our dinner, food was really good. It was very chilly inside so they sat us next to the fireplace but other guest that came in were having the same issue so they filled the first room instead of spreading people out. Heat should have been turned up and left up overnight as the temps have been so cold this season. This restaurant has great potential to be a very nice intimate dining experience except the tables are WAY TOO CLOSE. Literally, if they sat someone next to us I was going to leave, because it would have been like eating with strangers?? So I tried to eat as fast as I could to avoid them sitting someone beside us while I was still eating."
    Dined on 1/24/2014
  • "The food is good. I would recommend the chicken parmesan, chicken was tender and the gravy and pasta very good. Skip the $2.00 extra salad, not even worth that amount. The deserts were good. This was not the first time we went there and will go back again. If you order coffee be aware that it will be a strong small portion and not what you usually get in most restaurants."
    Dined on 1/19/2014
  • "22 Broad Street is one of the best options for finer dinning in the Bethel area where there are a lot of more mediocre restaurants and pubs. While service is good, it isn't what we'd call professional. Over our number of visits food is consistently good. The ingridients seem to be high quality thought dished are not overly creative. The kitchen can easily get backed up during busier times. Value is ok, prices are based on where the restaurant is located (resort area) and comparable to more upper end restaurants in the Portland area, though the qualify of the food doesn't quite match what can be found there."

  • "Although it took us a while to be seated for our reservation, it was well worth the wait. The food and service was exceptional. If you ever eat here Chuck and his girl friend are excellent servers. The night was perfect. Worth a visit if you are in Bethel."
