Perched at the top of Munjoy Hill in Portland’s East end, we are a chef-owned restaurant built on fresh market ingredients, friends, and family.

We have fun in the kitchen, but we also couldn’t be more serious about what we do. That’s why we get our goods from the very best: Stonecipher Farm, , Valley View Farm eggs and meats, Archer Angus beef, and Broad Arrow Farm pork.

We absolutely loved our dinner at Blue Spoon. We booked after receiving a couple recommendations from friends. All offerings were made onsite; components were house-made as well. For instance, the demi-glace for the Beef Wellington was rich and superbly house-crafted. Poached salmon was very tasty and perfectly cooked. The ricotta beignets with cherry jam was a lovely sharable finish.
Waitstaff were well-informed on all dishes and able to assist with selections based on dietary needs. The request for easily accessible seating was fulfilled. We will definitely visit to Blue Spoon again.... and again.

This is my dream restaurant. My husband and I wanted a quiet and romantic spot for New Years Eve. This was perfect. Our waitress was incredibly friendly and super helpful. The food was spectacular and the cocktails were delicious! Also, the prices weren’t outrageous either. I will definitely recommend this place to anyone and we will be coming back again on our next Maine visit.

One of the loveliest meals I’ve had in a long time. We had the Lobster Salad (special) to start, which was wonderful. The Mushroom Fettuccine and the Poached Salmon were our entrees, with the salmon being particularly excellent. We finished with the beignets, also great. Highly recommend!

We got the unlucky table by the door behind a curtain. It was further from other guests but the table was small. The food was good but I didn't feel like it was worth the price. The prices on the website were not up to date and we paid a few dollars more per entre.

What a fantastic place! Food was amazing, and they were very accommodating to a food allergy at the table. The only drawback is that it was VERY warm inside - but I think that is to be expected with the kitchen so close to the dining area. Next time we will be sure to wear lighter clothes. We would come back here again and again!

We love the Blue Spoon and have been there several times. This time we were a little disappointed in a few things: your amazing burgers weren’t on the menu; the cocktail selection was very limited; the waiter was not at all knowledgeable about cocktails. Otherwise, it’s always an enjoyable and personable place to eat.

This is a tiny and lovely restaurant with a handful of tables and attentive staff. Unfortunately, the food was incredibly bland and overpriced. My french omelet was $18 and overcooked. The salad needed seasoning, acid, and texture. I really wanted to like it, but we were very disappointed.

In spite of an equipment breakdown in the kitchen, they provided a beautiful and delicious meal. Blue Spoon is one of my favorite Portland restaurants. A side benefit is the ease of parking in the area.

Came here for a dinner on a quick weekend to Portland as a recommendation from our Air BnB host, and it did NOT dissapoint. Very quant location (like many restaurants in Portland) but the quality of the meals as well as service provided made this a stand out spot. The cod was baked to perfection and paired well with a spaghetti squash and roasted tomatoes, and the mushroom pasta was one I would love to have again and again. Beef tartare was beautifully presented and the fall salad was the perfect side to our meal.

We love this place and have for a long time! Food is creative and delicious—always. And the staff are kind, friendly people who seem to love what they are doing. This was our first in person dinner in almost 2 years. We felt so grateful just to be there and blessed by the delicious food and kindness.
