Ambiance was great for relaxed lunch with friend. Only challenge was finding nearby parking -which was not addressed on line- and despite calling ahead re this issue. I was told they would validate parking stub for nearby hotel garage over phone and learned upon arrival that was only for dinner. More

I came alone for dinner and the staff made me feel so welcome! The food was exquisite. The homemade bread for the evening was anadama: so delicious with a perfect crust and crumb. The fried goat cheese with crostini and honey roasted garlic was scrumptious. Their crispy Brussels sprouts were unique and addictive (though you may want to ask them to put the aoli on the side as some of the individual sprouts ended up with a bit too much on them). Their green apple brûlée was creative, beautiful and so tasty! Thanks for a wonderful meal. I will definitely return next time I am in Portland. More

Organic | Portland, Maine

Interesting approach that generally impressed. Local, fresh, seasonal - in April in Maine, when nothing is growing yet - and mostly was a hit. Pros: expertly cooked seafood with great sauces that enhanced natural flavors. Amazingly spot-on and perfect wine pairings. Flexibility in the 5 course tasting - you can get whatever 5 you want, including 5 of the same dishes! Reasonable price for what they’re doing. Cons: It’s gluten free, which while fine for most dishes was noticeable with our cheese fondue and cheese plate courses, which could have benefited from more than the dry oat toast offered. Dessert itself could have benefited from more sweet options - everything was more on the savory side. Whie again, fruit is mostly out of season, it still left us wanting a sweet end to the meal. But will definitely try again when summer fruits & vegs are here! Am sure it will be a very different experience. More

It was Ladies Night! A large group of friends got together for a fun filled dinner prior to a night of dancing to the 80s music. Kon accommodated our large group woman with 2 hibachi cooks and great drinks. They made our dinner transaction easy, offering 7 options for a set price including tip for ease of payment. We appreciated that so much and want to thank them for great service, food, and atmosphere. We all had a lot of fun and one friend lots of Saki... there is always one in the group! :) More
