The food was excellent. Calamari fries drew us to the restaurant and the entrees were superb. People should not be turned off in thinking it is a typical hotel restaurant.

We enjoyed prompt and attentive service, great food, with a relaxing atmosphere. A touch pricy, but overall a great experience.

I'm looking forward to trying the patio.

My favorite is the lobster scarlet. My husband got the steak fries and he's fussy about beef. And was very happy. The wines are good and the wait staff was excellent.

Lovely ambiance, delicious food (highly recommend the lobster appetizer), fun cocktails and friendly staff.
In this Covid environment where so many restaurants have done odd things to increase safety, this still looked elegant and it felt very safe.
It felt like going out to dinner in the good old days :-)

The food, service and ambiance at Bluefin was exceptional in every way. The after dinner glass of wine by the courtyard was the cherry on top. Would highly recommend.

Fantastic mojitos! Delicious appetizers! Main courses (lobster ravioli and lobster scampi w/house made pasta) were exceptional! So glad we decided to eat where we stayed - Blue Fin at Portland Harbor Hotel! Would do that again in a heartbeat! Wait staff was awesome as well!

Forget what you think you know about hotel restaurants. Bluefin North Atlantic can swim with the big boys in Portland. I have dined there many times, both indoors and in their beautiful courtyard, the food and service are as good as it gets.

Our dinners were cold when they came out, disappointing to say the least. Salads were tasty but entrees were cold and not as tasty but expensive.

Audrey was such a great server, they brought the food out piping hot and quick. I ordered soo much food and a cocktail and was surprised by the price being so affordable despite it being a fine dining experience. Audrey made great substitutions and recommendations I was very pleased. Try the Lobster Scargot forsure, chowder is heavenly, and the Lobster Scampi pasta is pretty good. I ordered a “hot toddy”
Cocktail because it was 27 degrees outside, I don’t think it’s in the menu but just ask for it. Very good and warm and comforting.

The lobster bisque barely had any lobster in it. $13 for a bowl of nothing. Where’s the meat? My fiancée and I both got it and were disappointed. The lobster gnocchi mac and cheese was also lacking lobster.

great venue, service was great. My stuffed haddock was luke warm and had room temp crab stuffing...gotta fix that Blue Fin! Oysters (Winterpoint) were AWESOME. Some of the best oysters in the world right here in Maine.
Value is low because prices are very high...my stuffed haddock was $30+...dont serve a luke warm/room temp meal at that price.

This is a boutique restaurant inside a very nice hotel (Portland Harbor Hotel). It has a very small seating area just off the main lobby that is cozy with a nice view of the beautifual courtyard.

While the menu is limited, the food is outstanding and the presentation is done very well. Be aware that the soup comes in a vessel that is plenty sufficiecnt for two people. We had the clam chowder and it was outstanding. The lobster rol was also very good.

One of our favorite hidden gems in Portland. Super cozy in the winter by the fire and great patio in the summer. Food is excellent. Only complaint is the beer selection - it's weak.

Upscale restaurant located within a hotel.
Unfortunately the food was so-so and the restrooms are quite a hike and up stairs which would be difficult to access for anyone in a wheelchair or has difficulty with chairs!
