On vacation in Kennebunkport at end of the season. We had the 3 course meal as it was the only offering. Lots of choices for each course. Food was very good and rest was good.

Risotto was cold under the scallops. Very disappointing! Should have been offered replacement, but was offered late in this corset a new plate of risotto, too late.

We had delicious entrees and apps on a recent visit to 95 Ocean. The clam chowder was very flavorful and had a nice combination of clam and potato, unlike some chowders that are mostly potato-based and overly thickened with flour. Our entrees of salmon and halibut were equally delicious. The restaurant itself has large windows to take advantage of the water view, and service was good. Staff throughout the hotel are friendly and helpful.

Excellent night spot for later dining (8:30pm). Quiet atmosphere at this time of year. Wonderfully fresh and delicately cooked fish and seafood. Creative presentation of a simple house salad

Overall, it was a bad value experience. Food was served cold, bland and seemed like we were being rushed due to a batmitzfah ongoing. Will not return.

went with another couple and did the Thursday night dinner special. First our waitress was very nice and attentive. Atmosphere was very nice being next to the water with a window table. As well, the selections on the menu were good. Issue is with the quality of food. My wife and I ordered the mussels, and they were extremely small (about the size of your thumbnail). I know there are mussels much bigger here in Maine since I live here and frequent many restaurants. I then ordered the Cod, it was so dry all the way through. My wife and our friends ordered the Lobster and asked for it the Lazy Mans way. It was ok but not very flavorful. Expect better lobster in Maine. This place has such potential, but the food quality needs to improve. Will wait to here from others when the food get better.

The venue lost its ambiance because of a wedding that took over most of the restaurant without us knowing, and was very loud. All the tables were crammed into one small room, and they didn’t even acknowledge it was our anniversary. In addition, our waitress seemed overwhelmed and was very slow with most of the meal.

We had a wonderful first experience at 95 Ocean. The service and food were excellent and not impacted by the wedding taking place on the property. My favorite foods of the evening were the Seared Tuna appetizer and the Halibut with Risotto entree. My only critical comment would be that Risotto could be cooked a bit less. The wine list had a very good range of price for both red and whites. We will return again.

When we arrived for our reservation everyone seemed to be scurrying around to get our table ready. It seemed a bit odd since we were the only once in the dining room. We had multiple different people coming to our table to light candle, drink order, deliver drinks, bring bread. Everyone was very nice. It all felt a bit disorganized. Maybe an off night.
The food was good.

There were 4 of us. We shared the special corn and ahi tuna nacho appetizer. Both were excellent. The halibut and scallop dishes were recommended and both were ordered. Then there was a pasta and salmon dish (salmon ordered rare). All but the halibut were excellent. The halibut was unfortunately dry. However, the risotto and veggies were fine.
Our server, Elizabeth, was excellent! Prompt and attentive.

Got a 830 reservation but had no idea a full pledged wedding party with very loud dance music was going on a doorway away. Couldnt talk with my wife at all. Very discouraging. Need to know these things when booking reservations.

Not really sure how this place draws business outside catering to guests staying at the hotel. It literally has zero ambiance, and looks like they had an extra room in the hotel that they could place some outdoor chairs in and call it a restaurant. When we dined, there was a wedding happening literally feet from our table in another hall at the resort, it was so loud you couldn't even hear yourself think... not that the music did anything to make the environment of the restaurant anymore inviting. Other than not wanting to leave the resort, there should be no reason for anyone to ever go out of their way to dine here with so many better options in and around Kennebunkport.

Unfortunately we weren’t able to eat in the dining room-there was a wedding either in it or near it. We were seated in a small closed front porch area that held 6 tables. It overlooks the street( not a great view) . Our server was wonderful without being obtrusive. His recommendations were spot on. The food was delicious and because if was a small not filled room we had conversations with our fellow diners. The evening was a success.

Our meal was the finest meal possible. I had the Lavender Collins and my dining partner had a glass of house chardonnay. We each began with the delicious clam chowder. My entree was the superb hand-rolled gnocchi with shrimp and my partner had the outstanding haddock. I had the blueberry cheesecake and my partner had the maple deliciousness. We agreed that this meal was one of the finest we have ever had.

We went here for my birthday dinner and had such a lovely time. Every single thing we had was amazing, (cocktails, salad, salmon, chicken, and dessert) the service was top-notch, and the view was the sunset over the water. I highly recommend this lovely restaurant.

Ate here with the kids while on vacation. They loved the children’s buffet and it enabled us to have a delicious, gourmet meal while they dined on their favorites...pizza and chicken tenders. I took all of our waiter’s recommendations from cocktail to entré with no regrets. Everything was fresh and flavorful.

95 Ocean was a last minute choice for dinner as we couldn't get into Mables down the street. Well we were lucky as 95 Ocean is outstanding. Great food and service and very nice views of the river.
