My favorite in PortlandWe went twice in a row. One with reservations; the other without. They treated us
Splendidly both times. The food was superb both fish and pork tenderloin.
Service was not too rushed nor did they forget us. A Mecca for foodies in New England.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have been to Fore StreetWe have been to Fore Street a couple times over the years. It has been over a year since we've been last and this past Saturday night (April 2013), was amazing. There have been so many changes that have really perfected this place. The menu is wonderful and well laid out, being separated by type of food (the sea, the farm, veggies, etc). The food isn't drenched in butter, fats, oils; instead, it's just really good tasting food with really nice quality ingredients that don't need to be covered up! Spot on, Fore Street To top it all off, the vibe of the restaurant is the best; good conversation, an open kitchen and up beat servers.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMFore Street is on everyone'sFore Street is on everyone's must eat list who visits Portland. Year after year they consistently provide amazing meals. I try and visit at least 2 x a year. Would absolutely frequent more often but it is one of the priciest spots in my beloved Maine.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMFore Street has a welcomingFore Street has a welcoming vibe, excellent service, and the food is superb! Period.
Thank you for yet another great dining experience.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptional atmosphere. TheExceptional atmosphere. The moment you enter you are enveloped in the wonderful smells of the wood stoves.
The open kitchen is the perfect background to a perfect meal that is always served by expert hands.
Have never had a bad experience and always look forward to my next visit.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMHeavenly Mussels...not to be missed: oven roasted mussels w/ garlic almond butter sauce. ask for extra bread ( their own; baked downstairs @ Standard Bakery) to mop up whatever is left after you enjoy those plump juicy mussels. Service was warm and professional. We return to Fore St. as often as possible - worth the trip -4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWe always stop here on vacationWe always stop here on vacation and are always pleased with the experience. The menu changes daily except for certain well-known staples. We shared the mussels as an appetizer. They were velvety in texture and tasted superb. My husband got a large portion of perfectly prepared roast pork loin. I loved the artic char. The waitress recommended a perfect Malbec and expertly explained the differences between similar choices. Don't miss dinner here!4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMPretty great as usual! FoodPretty great as usual! Food was excellent but my organic greens were a bit salty. Our meat was cooked to perfection and the pineapple upside down cake was to die for. The atmosphere was a bit noisy and less romantic than past visits but we'll still be back.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMbob edwardsqBest of the best, been going there since it opened 16 years ago.
