Appetizers/salads/entrees were amazing! Lots of vegetarian options. Neither of us enjoyed the desserts.
A nice quiet place to have dinner.
I would like to go back and experience outdoor dining on the deck.

Had a 9:30 PM reservation
Had a 9:30 PM reservation and we were the last table served. The staff treated us beautifully, never making us feel rushed and the food was sensational. The grilled Caesar Salad with fried oysters was amazing as was the special pork cooked two ways.

Saturday Morning Brunch
Great Saturday morning brunch. Food was delicious, service was excellent and the view if the ocean was spectacular! While this is a hotel dining room, they welcome everyone to dine with them. Prices are reasonable.

I find the appetizers here
I find the appetizers here are outstanding. The service is fantastic. Had a burger the night before that was delicious and flavorful. Just felt the main course we had the night we dined in was ok.

A beautiful view with food
A beautiful view with food that made the night complete. It was great that we made a reservation for 5:30 as we got to sit by a window and take-in the beautiful ocean view. I had Chicken Under a Brick and it was tender and juicy. The whipped yukon potatoes, spinach and raisin topping was perfect together.

We were staying at Inn by
We were staying at Inn by the Sea and ate in their restaurant for dinner. The food was a bit on the pricey side, but very good. Because we were tucked in a corner we didn't get to see much of the view but it looked great - try to get a window table!

Sea Glass Sparkles
My husband surprised me with dinner at the Sea Glass and what an memorable evening. I was treated like a Queen. The waiter was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. He appeared when we needed something and left us to dine like royalty. Never felt rushed.
I had the chef's special, duck with a fruit-reduction and my husband had the seafood paella. Heaven!
Extensive wine list. Dessert, a fluffy tiramisu with a spoonful of decadent chocolate ice cream. Did not want to leave!
The dining room is small and unfortunately it was too cool a night to sit out on the patio. Our seating wasn't great. Next time we'll ask for a corner table for a bit more privacy.
We're going back for our anniversary -- I can't wait!
5/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
My wife and I had our first dinner as a married couple here, and it was outstanding. The food was amazing. The service was even better. Our server was thoughtful and friendly, and knew the menu inside and out, and was able to help us pair a perfect wine selection with dinner. This is the best restaurant to celebrate a special occasion.
5/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food and service was excellent.
The food and service was excellent. The gnocchi, lobster bisque ( with an interesting tomato and fennel base) and the tiramisu especially noteworthy. View superb. Worth the trip to Cape Elizabeth.

Mother's Day treat
We enjoyed the overall experience at your refurbished inn and great service.

Overall one of the finest dining...
Anthony was fabulous. He was attentive and very knowledgeable, and had a great sense of humor with a charming personality. The food was out this world, and a great value for all that you're given. The view was unbeatable, and the ambiance warm and inviting. We felt like royalty.

Sea Glass, Cape Elizabeth, Maine
This is an outstanding restaurant for seafood. Our entrees were beautifully presented and extremely tasty. The paella was excellent. We were there to celebrate our anniversary, and we liked it so much that we plan to go back for other special occasions. The service was friendly and attentive, and the ocean view from the large windows was a lovely backdrop to the dinner. The desserts were very good too. Overall, an excellent dining experience.
5/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
wonderful dining on the porch
We decided to head to Cape Elizabeth one hot day and have dinner on the porch. We had a few appetizers and drinks, no one hurried us, the food was good and it's a lovely spot. We will return again. Be sure to bring a sweater because there can be a 10 degree difference at the coast!
6/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife and I went there on our honeymoon. The service was excellent, the view was spectacular, and the food was incredible. Very good if you're in the Portland/Cape Elizabeth area.
6/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
we arrived 45 min early, and the staff couldn't have been any more accommodating. we were offered a seat on the porch, they quickly brought two chairs into a shaded spot for us so we could enjoy the outstanding view....it's a lovely resort! the whole meal was to-die-for! gazpacho and mussels were so delicious that we soaked up every bit with the bread; the salmon was medium rare as requested and the paella was moist and very flavorful, both absolutely perfect, as was the attentive service.

Wonderful summer lunch!
My sisters and I had a late lunch at the Inn this week. The setting is spectacular with views out to Crescent Beach, and the grounds were gorgeous. I started with a gazpacho, which was the only disappointment of the meal as it was a little sour. However, the beet salad and crab cakes were delicious and we all indulged in dessert - which was a treat. I had the peach tart with raspberry sauce and ginger ice cream and it was amazing. The crust was buttery and flaky, the peaches not too sweet, and ginger ice cream a perfect taste contrast. If you want a treat on a beautiful summer day, I'd recommend a visit.

Sea Glass Inn - Dinner
Very enjoyable evening. The dining area has nice views over the expansive lawns and the ocean.
The food presentation and quality was exceptional. The wait staff was attentive and pleasant, and allowed us to have a relaxing meal.
7/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
My husband and I went for our anniversary dinner and were overwhelmingly impressed. The wait staff were very friendly and accommodating yet not overbearing. The food was out of this world. We started with a very generous portion of mussels in a tasty broth which we sopped up with the bread that was served with it...so good!!!! Our appetizer was followed by salads which were fresh and delicious and the tomatoes on my husbands salad actually tasted like tomatoes (not the grocery store ones with no flavor). For the main course my husband had the filet mignon, which is always his favorite but this one took the cake. The best filet he has ever had hands down. I had the scallops which were the best I've ever had. Great experience!!!!

Great spot by the beach
Sea Glass has maintained an excellent level of cuisine for the past 4 years. Always make it there several times during summer; just as good in the winter with the fireplace.

always a treat to go to the inn for a meal. Good food, service and terrific views. Will go over and over.

Megan, our waitress, was absolutely fabulous! I can't remember the last time we had a waitress this wonderful. The food was outstanding as was the wine selection. We were there for a 6:15 reservation. The atmosphere was quiet but soon started getting very busy, about 7:30.
We had the mussels,WOW are they delicious and marinated beets, yummy, as our appetizers. For our entrees we had the Groucho Steak, highly recommend, and the filet, both were cooked to perfection and for dessert, we chose the Creme Brûlée. We were able to actually DINE, what a nice way to spend our 11th.
Everything was great but, make sure to get mussels, oh my goodness, are they fabulous!!!!
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
I was captivated by the setting immediately upon arrival. I have lived in the area many years and It was on my list of places to go. The vibe was friendly but also elegant. Happy hour was outside and a complimentary glass of wine and cheese were offered to us even though we were only dining guests. The grounds are meticulous and the evening only got better with the appetizer of mussels and the salmon that was perfectly cooked.My friend had the scallops! The warm chocolate cake with raspberry sorbet was the finish to a great meal. The walk down to beach after on the boardwalk was also special. When we returned from the beach a fire pit was roaring and a live guitarist was playing. A perfect summer evening! We will be going back soon I hope!

What a charming farm to table restaurant with perfect service.
We stayed at the inn and ate three meals a day there--each was divine.
8/4/2013 5:00:00 PM
Everything was great - a bit pricey - but definitely worth a visit. Delicious food, nicely presented, and great service. An overall lovely experience. It has a very nice view too.

Made to feel welcome
Had a family and friend dinner here on a beautiful night. Was surprised, in a good way, that although the service was as attentive as it was, the overall experience is almost casual. A number of tables, including ours, had children, starting at the toddler age, and you were made to feel very comfortable, including a children's menu.. The restaurant was smaller than envisioned and you cannot beat the view, although one of our guests had her view blocked by the pillar next to her chair. We all enjoyed the meal from start to finish, including the unexpected amuse bouche. Would definitely return and sit outside for a lunch or the lounge menu.
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were attracted to Seaglass by the promise of a great view and the possibility of al fresco dining. Sadly it was foggy and overcast and so we sat inside. Our waiter was simply outstanding-- knowledgeable and engaging without being intrusive. Beet salad and tomato salads were tasty but the featured components were buried underneath the greens rather than being prominently displayed, which we found curious. The paella was delicious and the scallops done to perfection, but the delicious root vegetable puree was presented as a shapeless long blob alongside the scallops rather than being slathered artfully underneath or in a more visually appealing manner. So all-in-all a delicious dinner and fine setting with some odd twists of presentation.
8/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Delicious food, attentive service, gorgeous setting by the ocean.
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Quality Restaurant, esp for Vegans
They have a separate menu for vegan and gluten free meals; that in and of itself speaks volumes about the restaurant. They also have a very extensive wine list. They change their menus with each season drawing upon local Maine establishments for their products. Excellent service and the meals were very tasty and nice size portions.

Sea Glass at Inn by the Sea
We went to Sea Glass for a birthday dinner. The food was outstanding as was the service! I would highly recommend this restaurant if you're celebrating a special occasion, staying at the inn, or just in the mood for a great dinning experience.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
It is a little out of the way, but worth the trip to the gorgeous Inn by the Sea. The food was really spectacular, especially the accompaniments. I have never had Brussels Sprouts that actually tasted delicious!!
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM

Lovely, relaxed setting that set the mood for a long, relaxed ,meal with family. Appreciate your staff's quiet formality, allowing us to have a leisurely meal in an exceptional atmosphere.

It was a special occasion, and we were looking for somewhere special to eat. Sea Glass satisfied our requirements with class and charm. One note: the staff are better dressed than the clientele!

Wonderful, as Always!
We took friends who were visiting from out of state and they loved it as much as we did. Three of us had the lemon risotto topped with lobster which we all rated outstanding. The fourth entree was the salmon which was perfectly cooked. The vegetables which accompanied the entrees were imaginatively prepared and not just sides.
The view of the gardens and ocean is lovely!
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was the 1st day of my Mommy Retreat at the Inn By the Sea, and one of the few meals, in the last 19 months since my daughter was born, that I have been able to chew, taste, and savor (all while the meal was still warm). Most new parents can relate. Each bite was wonderful, and truly tasty! The service was truly attentive and took great care of me. I ate there 3 more times (2 dinners & 1 breakfast), all were prepared and delivered with care and great flavors.
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
No need to go anywhere else!
My wife and I celebrated our anniversary by booking the INNdulgence package. Our friends told us about all the great dining possibilities in the Portland area. We opted to stay in and take advantage of The Sea Glass. After an afternoon in the spa, it was very convenient. We were pleasantly pleased with our dining experience. Great food and romantic atmosphere! We also ate breakfast here both mornings and ordered room service the first night we arrived. There is not a bad thing on the menu!

Highs and Lows
Highs: While our ordered bottle of white wine chilled, we were each given a complementary glass from a pre-chilled bottle. Very friendly service. Salmon with brussels sprouts and paella were delicious.
Lows: Seasonal soup ("spicy butternut squash") was lacked "zip." Gorgonzola-stuffed dates appetizer was too sweet. The cheese lacked gorgonzola pungency -- thus making the dates and honey too sweet. "Energetic" noise rating given, because while this is a relatively small dining room we experienced an ongoing, loud birthday dinner.
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love this place. We always have great food here and it is close to home for us. Pleasant waitstaff and hotel personnel. We feel like we've been on a mini vacation when we dine here.
10/29/2013 5:00:00 PM
Everything was absolutely excellent. Very welcoming. Great food and service. Will definitely go back again .
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was my birthday, and I wanted to have a nice dinner somewhere close to home. I had eaten here once before. I reviewed the menu at Open Table, and I saw numerous vegan and gluten free options. There was only one server which slowed down the service. Luckily she made up for this by being attentive when she did come to the table. They have a nice cocktail list, and nice small batch bourbon selection. The lounge menu is incredible, by the way. We have such a great selection of restaurants in the Portland area, so I am not sure I would rush back. But if I were a guest at the Inn by the Sea OR had friends staying there, I would welcome dining with them. Nice that they feature local farm and fish selections.
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food as always was amazing, mouthwatering. The service is exceptional. Very attentive staff throughout the dining experience. We love this place.

One of my local favorites
My favorite for showing off our wonderful local cuisine without the hassle of driving into Portland. Even in a foodie town this place stands out for its quiet elegance, great service & delicious food. Highly recommend!
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Always A treat
We always eat here when are visiting Maine and it is never disappointing. Everything from the friendly service to the wine list to every yummy bite is a treat! An added bonus is that our daughter with Celiac's can easily find many choices!
Thanks for another memorable family dinner!
