About the restaurant
Our contemporary New England cuisine has been rooted in the local and seasonal long before they were the mots du jour on menus across the country. At our AAA Five Diamond, Forbes Five Star restaurant, we showcase incredible ingredients sourced through specially cultivated relationships with the farmers, fishermen and foragers of coastal Maine and just beyond for beautifully-presented, always inspired dishes that encapsulate the very essence of our spectacular setting.

We have a smart casual dress code; jackets are preferred, but not required. Shorts, sportswear, and flip-flops are forbidden in the dining room.

Our food was wonderful as was the service. The staff was wonderful, I want to appoligize for all of mankind for the loud, full of him self jerk at the large table behind us. He was so loud my wife and I couldn't talk to each other but now I know that as long as you make 7.5 million every month you should be fine, all about some drug bust on Nantucket, how it takes 10 hours to drive from Milan to the south of France and that his wife is a "F****** Redneck" pretty sure the downstairs diners heard that one. Anyway we are local and come a couple times a year and will continue to do so, hopefully that guy left a big tip, because you all deserve one. Thanks
