Diner Reviews
  • "This is a small restaurant on funky Wharf St. in Portland. It reminded us of charming little places we ate in in France and Italy. It's the kind of place you're happy you found. Great food, service not rushed, European ambiance. Every occasion is special if you have the opportunity to eat at the Merry Table."

  • "I made reservation via Open Table noting is was a birthday but nothing was said. Also, this place was rated as having Gluten-Free items on a GF app, but it was Not. Food was incredible, price was very reasonable, but service was having trouble. Server had to be sent out to get more scallops (it was a special item, and we had them, but luckily enough were on hand for us--it was still early."

  • "Oddly enough, French people staffing, cooking, and waiting in a French restaurant do a fantastic job. In all seriousness, I took my parents to this fine restaurant, and it was so good that I will forever remember my meal, which was the best piece of pork (filet) that I've ever had on a plate. The lobster bisque had healthy amounts of lobster meat as well as fantastic base. My parents had a "Texan crepe" and a seafood crepe. Both had the French Onion soup to start. They agreed it was one of the best meals they've ever had. I doubt I will be back in Portland again for some time, but when I am there again, I hope to see this restaurant still doing well. I will be sure to drop in for some food."

  • "Didn't need the reservations we'd made, had choice of several empty tables. My "Cordon Bleu" crepe was loaded with chunks of chicken & ham, and the multiple cheeses were a great twist. My wife's "Epinard," a vegetarian, was loaded with fresh spinach, a veggie she loves. 2 great desserts: "Chocolat" crepe contained warmed chocolate ganache. Made crepe soggy but still VERY tasty. The chocolate mousse had small chocolate chunks inside & was topped by whipped cream. Service was fine. Our waiter gushed when told we were first-timers and WOULD be back. Shook my hand as we left."

  • "Went for lunch and the overall experience was pleasant. Greeted quickly and the staff was nice and knowledgeable. Looking at their web site the onion soup looked wonderful. Unfortunately looks can be deceiving, there was very little flavor to the soup and the cheese was very bland. We both had sandwiches and they were okay but nothing note worthy."

  • "We went on Sunday for lunch. We nearly had the place to ourselves. The lobster bisque and crepe poulet were excellent. A variety of sandwiches are available, my guest had the Cuban Panini. The finishing touch was an apple tart. All were good. Prices were very reasonable. We will go back to the Merry Table again."

  • "We made reservations for 5 pm . Arrived at 5 to find restaurant dark but door open. Called out and the help answered. We said we have 5pm reservation. ..He said not possible because restaurant didn't open until 5:15. Then owner arrived. ...was obviously upset we were early. Talking (in French) about Open Table! But once he calmed down the food was great and service improved. I don't think we got credit for our reservation."

  • "Our waitress was pleasant but it appeared she was responsible for the seating & full service of all the tables. The food was fine but the service, our proximity to other diners and a $10 over-charge on our bill add to a night we are unlikely to repeat."

  • "My wife and another couple had dinner here recently. Drinks and apps were very good. Service, by the owner I believe, was friendly and attentive. Entrees were very good, but the crepes (ironically) were just OK. I had the duck stew and thought it was awesome. Another in our party had a scallop special and he raved about it. Both ladies had crepes and were disappointed. So, I would recommend this place, but would stick with apps and traditional entrees."

  • "TMT is a wonderful place for lunch but it is not quite up to dinner. My steak was depressingly reminiscent of school food."

  • "I travel to Portland every year for a month. Nice to have a French bistro in the options. Outdoor seating right on Wharf St so passing tourists and locals are the entertainment. Great crepes - nicely priced wine selections by glass, carafe or bottle. Hope they stay around for a while."
