    The food was simply amazing and the service was top notch. This was a wonderful dining experience that could only have been topped if the Chef had made an appearance at the beginning of service to discuss the menu with the guests.

    This dinner was amazing. Every course was perfectly seasoning and cooked properly. The lobster was the best I’ve ever had. The scallop dish had the most satisfying broth. And the beef melted in your mouth. Service was phenomenal as well and the overall ambience very enjoyable. I also really appreciated the pace of the tasting menu. Go here! You won’t regret it!

    A wonderful Prix Fixe tasting menu of 9 courses comprised of seafood, local vegetables, meats and desserts. Wine pairings are offered for an additional cost. Service of courses was perfectly paced and executed. Outstanding view, food, service, ambiance. A must for foodies. Reservations are hard to get so reserve well in advance, but check for cancellations.

    This place is special! The view, ambiance, and service alone are worth the price of admission. But the food was phenomenal, my wife and I both thought it was the best tasting course meal we have ever had. The variety in the preparation and ingredients of the foods served and the sizes/portions were superb. If you have the opportunity to dine here I highly recommend it, you will not be disappointed!

    Beautiful property. Beautiful dining space. Well trained, cordial staff. Beautiful, creative fresh food. BUT The tasting menu takes 3 hours! I am all about slow dining, but this was way too much for us. Also, even though the chairs are aesthetically pleasing, they were uncomfortable after an hour and a half, so three hours was a constant reminder of how uncomfortable they were. We would definitely prefer ordering off a menu to the tasting menu. Even though the food was delicious, we were looking at our watches, over and over again. So I only gave four stars, because for us, the three hour meal was a detraction from what should have been a great experience. I would rather have spent a little less and made my own choices, even though there is an obvious effort by the kitchen to keep things interesting and full of surprises. Hopefully, next year, the chef will go back to a menu. I know that a tasting menu is a bit easier for both kitchen and staff, as well as being trendy in some of the best restaurants, but in this case, I do not find it the best showcase for the chef’s talents.

    The whole experience @aragosta.maine is special. From the location, with glorious views of Goose Cove, to the tasting menu, each small plate an innovative combination of locally sourced produce - even for the vegan. The outstanding service from Chef Devin and her team in the kitchen, at the bar and in the restaurant, is pure elegance, and sommelier Matt never disappoints, with wine pairings or recommendations that surprise and delight, in addition to complementing, the food. Being able to stroll to a cosy cabin and drift off to sleep to the sounds of the sea, with the knowledge that it can all be repeated the next day is a dream worth living.

    Aragosta is a place where you take your time to enjoy the people you're with, the food you're served and the ambiance around you. While the tasting menu had some great surprises, some of them weren't exactly our tastes. But that's the fun and experience of letting the chef decide! If you're looking for an intimate night with those you love, this is it.

    Service was gracious, friendly, and diner centered. Ambience, strikingly creative, imaginative. All in the service of the dining experience—from ingredients to plating to arrangement of furniture. We looked forward to each course, and found each exquisitely prepared, beautifully constructed of the best, freshest ingredients. The entire experience was immensely pleasing without being overwhelming.

    Beautiful spot with great food and wine. We sat outdoors and after the sun went down it got a bit chilly but there were blankets. Server was lovely but had to be reminded to begin wine pairing. I think she may have comped me a desert wine to make up for the delay. Definitely a special occasion place.

    Excellent tasting experience. Beautiful ambiance, great service, delicious food. Just be prepared for a true tasting experience. Each course , and there were many, is a but a morsel of food. While I didn’t leave hungry, and the food was beautifully presented, personally I would have preferred less variety and a bit more portion for each course. Overall a memorable experience, just go prepared for this type of eating experience.
