Quel suprise!

We wanted to enjoy a finely crafted cocktail --- we did --- and remained for among the best meals we've ever enjoyed in Portland. Merci.

The service is beyond compare.

Well, the food is very good. My husband, who had been a bit skeptical about dining here, pronounced after his first bite (of the pork cheeks), "we're coming back!" My mussels puttanesca were also good. We also enjoyed the rhubarb custard tart. However, the experience was tempered by (i) unpleasantly noisy environment in the back room (very difficult to hold a conversation, and actually hurt my ears a couple of times), (ii) rather surly waiter.

We enjoyed our dinner at La Moule to celebrate our 35th anniversary. It was lovely to be welcomed with glasses of bubbly! Great cocktails too. Everything we ordered was very good. Excellent value. Our first time here and we look forward to coming back.

Great place in every way other than the noise level. Impossible to have a conversation in the area behind the bar. Tone down the music, please! Other than that, LOVE everything else.

We were delighted with this place. When we (old folk) arrived we asked that the music be turned down and voila’ it was ! We arrived near the end of happy hour and had a fine meal combining various dishes. Husband had oysters, chicken liver mousse and French first (not a veggie kind of guy) and I had the mousse (giddy that I did not have to share a bit of it), the beautiful and tasty butter lettuce salad and the mussels. Wow, what a lovely dining experience!

We had the best dinner on our short trip through portland and couldn't have been happier with La Moule. Our waiter was amazing, food was exceptional, ambiance romantic and lively, and the dessert was to die for. Have the waffle churro with chantilly creme and life is complete! :)

La Moule is one great restaurant - this is the second time in a couple of months I have gone - gotten fish both times - it is excellently prepared with wonderful sides. Perfectly prepared with a lovely presentation. Delicious - got the fiddleheads both times and they were tasty and fresh. Our friends had mussels and they were tasty with lots of sauce for dipping. We got the pate as a starter and I would recommend sliced baguette as it was hard to serve after ripping the half baguette. It was noisy in the back room so if you want a quieter ambiance, the front is probably better.

I love mussels. OK, that is out of the way. I did their happy hour mussels plates - so was able to get two different styles for roughly the price of a dinner portion. And, the fries came with a garlic sauce - to die for - if you love garlic.

I highly recommend this restaurant!

From the moment you walk in the doors you are taken care of. The wait staff was very attentive and knowledgeable. The food was fantastic. The flavors and freshness of the ingredients was a combination that left the taste buds wanting more. Brunch was lovely and unrushed. I will be back to try the supper menu.

The mussels are still amazing—best in Portland. But some of the rest of our meal was not as good as previous visits. Portion sizes were very small. Bread was not as good and you had to pay for additional bread to go with the mussels.

We will be back for the mussels but maybe not for a while.

I can’t decide if I will ever go back to this restaurant, which is unfortunate because I really like the food and have had good service. But the noise level is objectionable. Seriously could not hear my friend talk. I have pretty much had it with this trend. I can spend my money elsewhere.

Not too impress with the mussels in the "saffron" broth, need to cut back the lemon. The baggett could be thinner and quick toasted to add a charred test. Expensive French fries. Lamb shank was bland so the sauce pulled weight of the dish. Burger was ok, nothing fancy, the Ram have much better burger.

We had the most wonderful time at La Moule celebrating my partner's birthday! Exceptional service, we couldn't have asked for better. Our server and her team did an excellent job putting together a prix fixe meal for us and our friends, including wine and beer pairings. We left raving about the food, and are still talking about how great it was days later. Thank you so much!
