A mixed bag. On the plus side, good food, and excellent service. But quite a few negatives. Food was overall good but not great. Wines I had were disappointing and expensive, and by-the-glass options were limited for a place of this caliber. Very pretentious style/menu--lots of features I found frou-frou-y and distracting. (Meal was more of a production than a meal). Good view (and we had the table with the best view), but really nothing outstanding. Stark red and white décor (table cloths and chairs) not to my liking. Price extremely high for the value. Would hesitate to go again. Staff very nice and knowledgeable though.

The chef always has something a little out of the ordinary. Sometimes he hits a home run, sometimes it is just a triple, but it is always worth the experience.

Been there three previous times and it’s a gem of a restaurant. This time for Thanksgiving it was a disaster. And I was not alone when watching others returning plates or seeing grimaces all around. They just got the menu and service for the holiday extremely wrong.

Nous avons été chez Natalie's pour Thanksgiving.

L'accueil a été chaleureux et la nourriture était à la hauteur de la réputation de la maison.

Le "full nine yards" de dinde a été une très belle découverte.

Un hommage particulier doit être rendu au chef et à sa brigade car la gestion du service pour une cinquantaine de personnes est un défi de taille.

Natalie's est un endroit à découvrir ou à redécouvrir sans cesse.

The service, food and atmosphere was over the top great. The waiter and all the serving staff was so good. It is pricey, however it is a special experience I would recommend. We had the lobster tasting menu and the wine pairing, again pricey but it did not disappoint.

Incredible view of ocean waves crashing on rocks. I cannot say it enough: incredible views. Also impeccable service. Impeccable. And impeccable food! And impeccable prices! You get what you pay for, I have always found. You may only have to sell one or two of your children. But you will have memories that last a lifetime. And you only live once, apparently.

We were celebrating the 60th anniversary of our first date 9/27/57! The food, the wine, the service, the ambiance,.....the whole experience: first class from start to finish.
I chose the 5 course lobster dinner with the wine pairings, my lovely wife chose the 4 course meal, also with the wine pairings. The food presentation was superb, the taste of each course a tantalizing taste bud adventure, and...the wines were very well selected to pair with each food course. Our wine steward explained the reasoning, and expectations with wine and the course about to be served. We were thoroughly impressed with Natalie's Restaurant! Definitely a place to go to for special occasions!

The restaurant was near empty yet the service was painfully slow. The price was very high, but might have been worth it had the food been exceptional. Sadly, it was not. Just moderately good is the best we would give it.

Memorable! I rarely give such 'high marks' but dinner at Natalie's was a wonderful experience and we enjoyed it thoroughly. The food was unexpected at times but always delicious. The location was charming and very comfortable. The service was friendly and attentive. Of course it all comes at a cost and it is was expensive but we were celebrating our anniversary and it was worth it.

Natalie's restaurant is a proud member of Relais & Châteaux.

It deserves all its diamonds.

Spending an evening at Natalie's restaurant is by itself a valuable reason for spending a few days in Maine.

Very fine cuisine, several dedicated persons to take care of you and...you never get the bill untill you're really finished.

Really an outstanding place to go.

We went to Natalies for a special dinner. The restaurant/ hotel is very nice and we did enjoy our dinner very much. The Staff was very nice and and helpful, especially the sommelier. We did the full tasting menu and the food was beautifully presented and fresh. Portions were a bit tiny (i.e. 1 oyster, 1 slice of beef), and everything was just ok, but not exceptional or especially memorable . I do not expect huge portions with a tasting but I did find this meal a little skimpy.

I did not want goat and they were happy to substitute. I would be reluctant to recommend with such a limited menu. Overall, we are happy we went and we did enjoy the experience but would not be anxious to go back.

Natalie's is without a doubt the best restaurant anywhere in Midcoast Maine and rivals even the best restaurants in Portland and beyond. The service is always effortless and superb, the kitchen easily accommodates allergies and dietary restrictions without compromising the quality of the food, and the cocktail program is coup de grace that puts it over the top into the perfect evening.

Always a delight. Dined earlier in the summer when a seasonal place can get more staff and the service was a bit more prompt and attentive, but the kitchen remains outstanding. Great place for a special occasion or if you just want a top notch meal. Natalie's would be competitive with the top tier restaurants in Chicago (one of America's great dining cities).
