We thoroughly enjoyed the entire dining experience. It was an exquisite adventure into fine dining. And, we are fairly certain Fore Street staff invented the phrase itself. Thank you, everyone who chose the menu, prepared the ingredients and to Faith, who served us with her warm and special smile.
Food was delicious and waitress service outstanding
It’s hard to think of a better restaurant in New England. I always stop in when I’m in Portland. Wish we had a place like this in Boston.
A foodie’s Paradise.
Excellent food and service.
I thought the food was very good and fresh, as advertised. The service was excellent. The noise level, however, was terrible. It was difficult to hear my dining partner and/or the server. I wouldn’t recommend this restaurant for a romantic, quiet meal.
Everything was just perfect starting with the server (very knowledgeable and friendly), in my opinion the best table in the house (with a view of the kitchen), and the delicious food.
Had two great fish dinners..great wait staff...
Great place to go for a special occasion. Reservations are a good idea but I have been lucky so far as an early walk-in (It’s worth the wait). Wait-Staff are very professional and excellent at making suggestions about the menu and wine selection.
A delicious meal with a neat atmosphere inside. Large portions.
Absolutely wonderful in every way - food, wine, views of the kitchen magic and outstanding service by Sarah.
The food continues to be worth the hype. Absolutely delicious and generous portions. Service a little slow. Can't wait to return in the future.
Food was absolutely amazing! We had the scallops, halibut, asparagus, and the potatoes and it was some of the best food we have ever had. Highly recommend!
Wonderful. The food is phenomenal. The space is beautiful.
Fantastic meal for a special occasion. Elevated food, exceptional service, but in a casual environment.
We shared hangar steak and bluefish filet and loved each. Enjoyed raw scallops and littleneck clams ss appetizers and shared an opera cake dessert. Wonderful. Bery friendly and efficient service too. Certainly not inexpensive but worth it.
Our server was wonderful! We’ve worked with her in the past and she’s knowledgeable, patient, personable and knows her wines :)
The beignet dessert was fantastic as was the risotto.
A precision team! Servers, chefs, manager ( Matt) server (Sarah) all make this a remarkable experience.. Well then there is the food! Everything from the bread basket to the craft cocktails to the desserts was absolutely delicious!.. Mussels are to die for.. Foie Gras melt in your mouth astounding.. A must visit in Portland!
Great NE, romantic ambience. Fantastic food and top service. Great evening out.
The food was delicious! The hanger steak, halibut,scallops and pappardelle were all a hit! Neil our server was excellent! And my husband made a point to speak with Dana and congratulate him in such a wondetful restaurant
Excellent experience with highly creative dishes and a knowledgeable and accommodating host!
Fore Street was truly an amazing experience from beginning to end. The ambiance was perfect for a special occasion, the service was spot on, and the food was simply incredible. Do yourself a favor and order the oysters with freshly grated horseradish and in house cocktail sauce. The muscles are incredible, so be sure to leave some bread for dipping. There whole fish is sensational and the garlic mashed potatoes were just heavenly. Save room for dessert if you can; you won’t regret it. All in all, it was a fantastic night.
We had the best waitress EVER!
The overall vibe was very cool. Food was very tasty and really loved the rotating menu with fresh local ingredients. The server was very helpful, polite and attentive.
This was our second experience at Fore St and it was every bit as memorable as the first. The food is awesome and so thoughtfully prepared and presented. There is a reason you need to book it at least a month out. They do hold some tables for walk ins and won’t bend on it no matter what you offer or how much you are willing to spend which I respect but also hate after I’ve eaten and remember how good it was and ask them to give me a table at the same time tomorrow night!! LOL! Definitely a gem
Absolutely our favorite restaurant
Everyone was very friendly. Food was spot on. Really Delicious! Pleasant atmosphere. Being able to watch a lot of the food being prepared was a treat. Would return.
Fantastic staff and wonderful experience. New fave restaurant in Portland.
Excellent place to eat - Great menu - hard to choose what to eat - Service was excellent wine list quite extensive. We highly recommend eating here!!

Great food, beautiful place and lovely atmosphere.
Absolutely wonderful. Service was spectacular and the food was sublime. I highly recommend the wood fired squid for any foodie out there. Fantastic!
A fabulous anniversary dinner! Loved the use of seasonal food. All so very well done.
Amazing meal! Keep the vanilla custard pie on the menu. Out of this world!!
This was our first indoor dining experience since getting vaccinated and we felt very comfortable with the way Fore Street was serving their customers. We were seated near an open window and, with the distancing of tables, it was so nice not to overhear every conversation around us. Our server, Lowell, was very attentive & personable, gave good suggestions and knew the menu well. The staff was terrific.
