Earth promises a once-in-a-lifetime meal that will leave you wanting more. Earth, nestled amongst balsam and birch trees, was founded on a philosophy that cherishes community and connects excellent food to the farmers and foragers who provide its resources.

Earth's basic yet innovative food relies on farm-to-fork freshness. Along with local meats and seafood, the restaurant employs veggies from its two organic gardens, which are harvested daily and used in every dish to enhance their distinct flavors and give them a handcrafted feel. Our menu is updated daily using the freshest ingredients.

PLEASE NOTE: table reserved for party of two is 2 hours, and 2.5 hours for parties of four & larger. Walk-ins are currently unavailable. Check often for new positions.

    Earth at Hidden Pond was a home run. From start to finish, everything was on point. Our server Patrick was a star and helped us with our 4 course selection. The food was unbelievably delicious and the desserts just as good. We had a tremendous time at Earth and can’t wait to come back.

    An absolutely beautiful restaurant— rustic, warm and elegant. We were made to feel welcome the minute we stepped inside. The service was impeccable and the kitchen waitstaff went out of their way to make our anniversary really special with several special gestures. The tasting menu was absolutely fabulous. Cauliflower soup was excellent, as was the coq au vin, scallops, mushroom ragout, halibut, and roasted carrots. Every dish was done to perfection. It was one of the most special meals we’ve ever had and we’re looking forward to returning.

    This restaurant was outstanding. The food was amazing. The only reason I can not give this 5 stars is their carelessness for allergies. My boyfriend and I warned our waiter when we sat about a nut allergy when we noticed the amount of nuts on the menu. We understand that sometimes things can't be modified and we would just order things without nuts. The waiter assured us that it wouldn't be a problem. It was a problem. 3 times. My boyfriend ordered the Venison and they said it could be made without the nut garnish on top. It came with the nuts and we quickly asked if that was indeed what we saw. They quickly remade the order and brought out complementary carrots that were....rolled in spiced nuts. You cant make this up. Once we got to dessert, they brought out an additional comp...which he then remembered ..oh crap nut allergy... and had to run back to the kitchen to confirm if it had nuts. To be honest it was still a wonderful experience and I would go back and recommend it to people, just with a strong warning...and maybe a different waiter.

    This was a very pleasant dining experience. The ambiance is very rustic and welcoming, a real beautiful place in the woods. The staff could not have been more welcoming and friendly. The food and service were impeccable. I had the venison as my main course and it was prepared perfectly, not gamey at all and was quite delicious! My wife has the scallops with lobster raviolis that she said were wonderful as well. I highly recommend dining here

    A beautiful restaurant with amazing Ambience and incredible food. We had the three course dinner. I started with beef tartare that was beautifully structured and presented in flavorful. Three small portions which were just rich enough. Followed by the steak, perfectly cooked and over crisp vegetables. Finally Apple putting dessert with butterscotch sauce. Not too sweet and beautifully presented like every course. My husband had roasted carrots which were Sublime and perfectly spiced with Harissa. He had the fish entree and key lime pie for dessert. Exquisite presentation of every course. Attentive service by knowledgeable staff. Elegant food in a comfortable environment. Highly highly recommend.

    We've lived in the Portland area for the better part of 10 years. This was one of the finest meals we have ever experienced during that time. Top to bottom the food was darn near perfect. It is abundantly clear that the chef dedicates immense time on the details that might go unnoticed (ex. the olive oil served with focaccia was some of the most flavorful we have tasted). The experience is presented in a upscale, yet not pretentious manner, which made it easy to both enjoy and relax. Highly recommended.

    We called a hidden gem, just for the fact the drive in on the property seemed secluded. Once we walked in, we fell in love with the place. Had this rustic but charming feel to it. The staff was friendly and eager to make sure we enjoyed our experience there. Our server, Charlie, was fantastic! He was very helpful with suggestions of what to order and very friendly. Food was outstanding from the 1st course through dessert. For apps we had the scallops, braised rib pasta and carrots. Main course were Halibut and the Venison (cooked to perfection)! Make sure to get the doughnuts!!! We will go back and absolutely recommend Earth to anyone looking for a truly great dining experience.

    Another outstanding dining experience, the Earth team never fails to amaze us! Our server, Patrick, was Johnny on the spot all evening. We’ve come to know almost all of the servers and management, and throughout the evening everyone of them made a point to stop by and say “Hi!”. From the moment when the valet takes our vehicle to when he returns it we receive exceptional service and satisfaction! If you haven’t been to Earth, what are you waiting for!

    My wife and I went there for our joint birthday celebration. We were very pleased with the reception and recognition of our celebration by the hostess and the staff. We each received a complimentary glass of champagne to start, and it only got better from there. Aidan, our waiter, was fantastic providing great service and communication throughout our dinner experience. We both got the 3 course meal. I started with the short rib appetizer, followed by the duck entree and donut dessert. All 3 were perfectly prepared and delicious. My wife started with the goat cheese salad, sea bass and the key lime pie. Her salad was great, the fish was cooked perfectly, but she wasn't crazy about the sauce, however. loved the celery puree. The key lime pie with coconut ice cream was very good! As if that wasn't enough the staff sent us two additional desserts (see gluttony) for our birthday - fresh raspberries & blueberries with raspberry sorbet (and 2 candles) and a flourless chocolate cake w hazelnut ice cream. Needless to say we had to take food home. Overall a great meal and memorable experience.

    Kurt was an amazing waiter. He was attentive and helpful, but also gave enough space in between checking in. We were spoiled by the champagne, second course and dessert on the house. It was above and beyond and unexpected. It just shows how Earth cares about the experience their customers have. Thank you!

    Earth at Hidden Pond is a very special place. From the moment you pull up to the Valet and enter into a very beautiful but approachable place, you know it is going to be magical. The prix fix menu is interesting with many choices. The cocktail selections are creative and wonderful. And the wine list is superb, with reasonable mark ups on beautiful bottles. Even the wines by the glass are well chosen. But the food is what makes this place so superb. Every course is a delight for both the eyes and the palate. It is all so darn delicious. The service is superb too. While it is a bit pricey, it is truly worth every dollar spent. And if you let them know it is a special occassion, like birthday or anniversary, a special treat just might show up. We will return many times.
