I had the grilled lobster
I had the grilled lobster -- there was so much butter that that's all you could taste. My family had the sole francaise and a seafood stew that were excellent. We have been going to Street since it opened. This is the first underwhelming experience we have had.

Food was very good. I can't
Food was very good. I can't believe I am writing this, but there were too many mussels in the appetizer. I could not finish 1/2 my entree (pan fried Arctic Char), which was delicious. It was my wife's 50th birthday and the staff made mention and brought a special dessert, nice touch. All in all a great evening, will come back when we are in Portland.

I've come here twice, once with my girlfriend and once with my parents. It was the right ambiance for both occasions! It's a wonderful place and we enjoyed a near-perfect meal.

This was our second visit
This was our second visit to this restaurant. It was as wonderful as the first time. Server was knowledgble and provided lovely service. Scallops in Pernod cream sauce absolutely perfect! We will return and recommend Street and Co. to friends.

This was our third visit:
This was our third visit: 1st time was around 2000 (with our then 5 and 8 year old children), second was two years ago with teens, tird was with our young adult children. It's one of several restaurants in the area we like to visit on special family occasions. The food and service has been excellent on each visit. However, the cheap caned chairs chairs in the dining room really need to be replaced with something of greater quality and comfort. They simply do not belong in Street & Co. Perhaps you could hold a "garage sale" TO GET RID OF THEM.

Excellent food, just very noisy. We could hardly hear one another (there were two of us) and we were in a far corner.

The seafood was tremendous. Anyone can take a flavorful fish and make it seem interesting. Street & Co. goes well beyond this. They're not afraid to take even the most delicate fish flavors and heighten them to sublime levels of taste and texture. We had sole and halibut -- not exciting fish -- that were delicate, flaky, and just exploded in our mouths with freshness and the absolute certainty that Yes. This is *exactly* what every sole and every halibut dreams of tasting like. The preparations were spectacular and yet kept the seafood front and center (as it should be). The best seafood restaurant we've ever eaten at, hands down. Every time we return to Portland, we'll be making reservations at Street & Co.

Street & Co is a reat restaurant
Street & Co is a reat restaurant with some of the finest seafood dishes in Portland. It has a great menu selection and with their attentive waitstaff you will be served timely and promptly. A definite choice in any "foodies" bucket list!

We had a reservation but had to wait 45 minutes. They brought other people back who came in after we did. There were only 3 in our party. They did give us an appetizer to make up for this

Wonderful meal, as always
Street and Company shines with consistency. The spinach salad with cured bacon and fried egg was quite possibly the best assembly of taste ever for a salad plate. Yellowfin tuna wasblackened to perfection, and the bourbon pecan pie is always a wonderful way to end a meal. Do not miss the oysters - a terrific value.

GREAT FAMILY BIRTHDAY DINNER
Two in our 60's, one 40, and a 5 year old had a splendid evening. Good food, not too noisy, and kid-friendly.

A must stop
Like the Brennan family's slate of restaurants in New Orleans, Street & Co. is a member of a family of restaurants in the Old Port section of Portland, Maine. The food while not out of this world, was wonderful. The mussels were much larger than we're used to in Florida and more tender - like clams. Also the scallops were of a larger size than I personally prefer, but they were prepared tender with a just glazed outer skin in the pernod sauce. If you're a couple that enjoy sitting next to each other, be sure to state at minimu 3 when you make a reservation so you'll get a 3 or 4 top table vs a 2 top slammed against the wall and no room to slide a chair to the remaining open side.
5/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
We found this place on Internet as wanted somewhere special for our silver wedding anniversary, but we were in England so had to go by reviews and website. It was the sound of the menu and the photos of the rustic building that sold it. We were not disappointed! Our waitress was charming, the food was every bit as fresh and tasty as they said it would be. Good value for money too. The atmosphere was vibrant and we would love to come back here, unfortunately it's a little to far to travel! Will recommend to anyone we know who is going to be travelling to Maine.
5/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
Charming location and building. The food was fabulous! A little pricey but worth it.. This was our second time there and it will not be our last!

I have never been dissapointed with this restaurant and would highly recommend it to anyone who is travelling through Portland

I had the soft shell crab appetizer and the grilled lobster on linguine. Both were delicious. Service was friendly and attentive.

Terrific spot. Delicious food and wine. And wonderfully welcoming and knowledgeable server. We are already planning to visit again on our next trip to Portland!
6/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
This is such a great find! We're visiting from Boston & decided to dine here based on the great reviews. Did not disappoint at all. We started by sharing a couple of apps: huge, delicious grilled sardines & 1/2 dozen oysters. My husband really enjoyed his grilled arctic char & I simply loved my linguine w/ loads of tender huge clams drenched in white wine sauce. The table next to us had linguine w/ grilled lobster....OMG! It was practically a whole lobster on top of his pasta. Impressive looking dish & the guy looked like he hit the jackpot! We shared a bottle of Cotes Du Rhone at a very decent price. We had a wonderful waitress. She was courteous & very attentive despite being so busy. So happy we made the reservation. Thanks!!

Excellent seafood restaurant.
Great food, service, and ambience. Excellent baby spinach salad with fiddleheads. The lobster diavalo for two was heavenly. Very enjoyable experience.

Great seafood in Portland
We have an excellent dinning experience at Street and Company. The seafood is the main reason to go to Street. The restaurant is loud and can be cramped which is why 4 stars. Its in an old building in the Old Port district. The scallops are delicious, and I also tasted the Halibut. I would highly recommend both.

I thought that the food was good, but not great. The AC wasn't keeping up with the heat and it was very hot. The noise level was high enough that I had to raise my voise and lean across the table.

This was one of the best seafood meals we have ever had. Our waiter offered great suggestions and the whole staff was very professional and attentive. The melon salad was perfect- so refreshing. Our main courses of the grilled wild salmon and the sole francoise melted in our mouths. The panna cotta dessert was the perfect ending. This was by far our best meal in Maine.
7/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a great experience at Street & Co. It was noisy, for sure - the food quality was excellent. The restaurant was hot due to the open kitchen and majority of menu served in piping hot pans at the table (red clam sauce so yum). The tables were very close together similarly to NYC dining. Wine list was very good, the crab and corn appetizer was DELISH. The marinated squid appetizer was definitely not for us. good salad options and a big variety of seafood on the menu. The swordfish portion was small for $30 and slightly disappointing for that reason alone. Overall excellent would definitely go back.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent dining in Portland
We were so impressed. First time in Portland. Restaurant was recommended to us and we were not disappointed. Most definitely on our list of restaurants to visit again and again.

Street and Company is FABULOUS!
This is a delightful FISH GEM. I stress the FISH, because that's all they serve. They have everything that's locally sourced from the sea, which is right around the corner. Try it! You won't be disappointed. Not great for young kids, only because it's really busy and there's a very high level of activity.

A return visit
Portland is a wonderful food city. So many great, diverse food choices. On a recent visit after researching all the options we decided to return to Street & Co. primarily due to a memorable first visit. The memory of sole francaise drew us there again. Excellent seasonal menu and the sole did not disappoint. It will always be hard to go anywhere else in Portland!
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lives up to its rep
Our appetizers were incredible & my husband's haddock was very good. My shrimp over linguini was just ok. Service was excellent. I appreciated the option to taste a wine before going all-in for a full glass. Unique experience, lovely ambiance. Will definite recommend to others.

My wife and I were travelling
My wife and I were travelling through on a trip to Canada. Street and Co. was recommended by friends in WV who had been there. It was tough getting a reservation - which speaks highly for them. We enjoyed our dinner very much. The only down side was the noise. A previous review had noted this also and I can understand why. The table next to us had a very loud laugher who just about knocked us off our seats at every laugh. The acoustics make it a bit difficult to hear right across the table.
Otherwise, I would highly recommend Street and Co and will try them again.
9/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went the first day after the building fire that closed them for about a week.
I had heard great things about this place and they were actually even better than we expected. Right from the wine in the lounge, to the salads, entrees, and desserts; all excellent! Our waitress was particularly exceptional as she offered to filet the whole fish for me (I'm not much of a fisherman). Everything was great; the food was portioned just right; incredible tastes; and the atmosphere was quite quaint.
We will definitely be back again!
9/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have been reading the reviews and have long wanted to try and finally got the opportunity. The meal couldn't have been better. It is fish only so don't look for a steak. The tastes for $4.00 were incredible-house cured salmon which could have been $10-12 in another restaurant. I had the special whole Branzino which was filleted table side. My friend had the grilled halibut which was delicious. The wine list was extremely well priced- we had a $28 bottle of Pinot Blanc. A very good selection.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
the service was great, and the seafood that we chose was done very well. the kitchen was clearly visible, and that is a plus at any food establishment.

OMG IN PORTLAND MAINE
Had the best seat in the house - overlooking the open kitchen.. The people working the appetizer and dessert station produced beautifully composed plates of organic greens, meats, cheese and were immaculate at their station. The most fascinating person to watch was the executive chef. He didn't waste a movement, there was a time when two other stations were on a break and he 'did it all' and didn't miss a beat. Now the food....we started with a shredded cabbage salad with apples and bacon in a Dijon dressing, a perfect appetite stimulator. The Bang Island mussels were plump, tender and lusciously sauced white wine and garlic and the blackened halibut was perfectly seared with just enough heat. If you can get a reservation -- GO!
10/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
A very enjoyable dining experience for the 4 of us. The lobster linguine was wonderful
10/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
This may just be the best place to dine in Portland, and maybe all of Maine's seaports as well.
We were glad that the recent fire near Street didn't affect them much, especially after another hot spot was just okay. We had two of the house specialties, Pernod scollops and pan fried sole. Both were very we'll done and filling. The salads and bread were very good and plentiful. Couldn't believe the mussels at 12 bucks, get the and ask for more bread for sopping the broth. The service was very good too.

Street and Co. has top notch raw bar with knowledgeable staff and comfortable lounge area.
Food is highest quality and brings interesting tastes and flavors.

They Do Fish Proud
Everything was exquisite. Prices were quite reasonable making it a great value. The tuna bolognese with garganelli was luscious! Already looking forward to my next visit!

First time here, had heard
First time here, had heard so many good things about this place. We arrived in time, but had to wait a little bit for our table, as it was a Friday night, and pretty busy. We were able to order drinks, while we waited, which was maybe all of 10 min.
Seating is, well, a bit tight, but not too bad.
If your a sea food lover, enjoy good food, made with high quality ingredients, give the place a try.

A Fabulous Must
A gem that is tucked away on Wharf Street. We had the salmon special and the signature sole Francaise - the latter served in a pan- all with a splendid wine suggested by our well versed server. It was our first time and we thought the food to be creative and exceptional. Our opinion was heartily supported by happy and personable diners next to us. A fine testament to the place. Our meal ended with the divine bourbon pecan pie. Our meal completely negated the nightmare of trying to find a parking place in downtown Portland. Well done, Street and Co. Thank you.

Street and Company is our favorite Portland dining option.
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
I've been to Street & Co. before but it had been quite some time. For a restaurant with such long history in Portland, they have not lost their touch! The food was fabulous, the atmosphere lively and our waiter was a lot of fun!

Portland's best seafood
We make a point of getting a table at Street & Co. whenever we're in, or passing through, Portland. The setting is casual, in an old port building. They have a good wine list, and a great oyster bar. If you love excellent seafood as we do, give this restaurant a try. We recommend you book your table in advance though, the place is very popular with the locals.

Maine Seafood done right
This is a special place to go for exquisite seafood (and more). I had sole and hubby had scallops, both done to perfection. Plate sizes are fairly generous. Salads are wonderful and small tastes also excellent. Next time I will try to eat less....I wanted everything on the menu!

A perfect and wonderful restaurant. Simply fantastic!

This was our second time to Street &Co and it was another great dinner. The "Tastes" we had as appetizers were amazing. The duck and feta and figs were delicious.
My wife had the scallops in Pernod and cream sauce and it was perfection.
I opted for the clams and linguini in white sauce. It's a pretty simple dish, but mine was awful...very, very salty/briny almost to the point of being inedible. The waitress could not have been more understanding and asked if she could bring me something different and I ordered the grilled tuna ( barely grilled, sushi raw) it was great! Perfect piece of fish prepare perfectly.
Very rustic chic cozy restaurant with great atmosphere. Our waitress Violette was as good as it gets
