Very good food. Outstanding steak frites. Perfect meat and hot parmasean fries. My wife had ciopino, also very good. Our children were with us and good choices for them (including pizza.) Very expensive though.
Open Table description should say restaurant is in Samoset Resort. After absolutely delicious appetizer (brussel sprouts), Rustic Italian soup, and wedge salad, it was a surprise that the Spaghetti alla Carbonara was so tasteless that not even adding salt could rescue it. My wife said the salmon was excellent.
This is the second time my friends and I have met for brunch on Sunday at the Samoset. We sat with a view of the bay. The service was good, but the food was even better. This is a great value. We have traveled to Bangor for brunch, but the choices were limited to a small menu with limited quantities. Coffee and mimosas were extra. The Samoset offers a variety of food selections. The price includes coffee and a mimosa (or glass of champagne) and quantities are not limited. Plus we didn't have to drive 75 miles to have brunch. It is a win-win dining experience.
Everything was superb- would highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion.
We enjoyed everything very much. Had a great time and enjoyed what we ordered, including the cocktails and wine. Until the dessert arrived. Some of us ordered the Tiramisu. And we expected a cake, like some of us had had earlier. What we got was not what we expected.
Food was exceptional!! Mushroom risotto and chicken saltambocca was out of this world
Lobster Bisque was only warmish, had few pieces of lobster from the tip of the claw where it is dry and tasteless, whole dish lacked flavor. Pizza was no better, very bland with chunks of unseasoned, dry breast meat unevenly scattered over it. Altogether disappointing.
We observed my 70th birthday dinner and had not only a creatively delicious and beautifully prepared meal but were charmed by our wait staff who were warm and friendly without being intrusive. This was our sixth visit in six years of coming to Maine to our timeshare condo, and we could not imagine a more perfect vacation eatery. Bravo.
For a day without power I thought they did an amazing job of concocting a delicious meal. Obviously not being able to brew coffee was a downer but the eating by total candlelight was fun. Way to go!
Very old school, food was average. Nothing special, overpriced for quality. Sevice was above standard.
food, server were very good. a little bit too noisy. pitch black outside so you couldn't see ocean or grounds
Our waitress was very attentive but the salad was not as fresh as others that we've had in the area and the pasta with the lobster was just OK
Pleasant surprise, as were are from out of state and after what seemed to be a long ride down s dark road... it was well worth the drive!!!
Food & Service were awesome.
It was dark so we didn’t get to see much of the property.., we went back the next day before leaving Rockport.
Beautiful... will definitely return.
We have eaten at this Italian restaurant inside the Samoset Resort several times. Always good! It is a very well-run operation. Our server was excellent. He was a real pro and had a great personality. Service did lag at the end of our experience mainly because it got very busy and they didn't have enough servers scheduled. Menu stand-outs on this trip were the meatballs with polenta and the salmon.
My wife and I celebrated our 32nd wedding anniversary here - entire experience was great. We live in Delaware but will come back to this area for this restaurant and the hotel!
