About the restaurant
Novio’s is an inspired bistro offering a small and selective menu that includes items that are representative of the education, training, travels and experiences of our team.  We feature meats & seafood and produce from local farms, fisherman and other purveyors. The menu offers vegetarian and gluten free options, beautiful soups and salads, and fresh pasta. Novio’s offers a full service bar that showcases an elegant yet approachable wine list, craft beers, and signature cocktails and an extensive scotch & bourbon list. Items on the menu change often as our team becomes inspired by the stories of experiences had by our guests. While guests seated at tables and booths order from the four course menu with an optional wine pairing guests that book reservations at the bar have an option of ordering à la carte.

About the restaurant

Located in Portland's Old Port District, Fore Street opened in June, 1996. The interior surrounds a unique brick and soapstone hearth with a wood-burning oven, grill and turnspit; visible from most tables. We believe that good food travels the shortest possible distance between the farm and the table. Our menu changes every day and is founded upon the very best raw materials from a community of Maine farmers, fisherman, foragers and cheese makers. Most of the Maine foods are organically grown or harvested wild, each brought to us at the peak of its season. In 2002 and again in 2007, Fore Street was named by Gourmet Magazine as one of the Top Fifty Restaurants in the United States. In 2004, Chef-Partner Sam Hayward was named Best Chef: Northeast by the James Beard Foundation.

We have been to the corner room 3 times in the last 2 months. We just can’t stop going. It’s been outrageously good: great service, phenomenal food. Even the little kids were thrilled. It doesn’t get the notoriety of some of the other Portland restaurants, but for me, it’s unbelievable value. Best of all, they have fantastic GF pasta. What a treat.

Beautiful, historic building with attentive, friendly service. I had the seasonal berry salad, which was generously sized, and the halibut which was good but a bit over-salted.

We were so happy to have a last minute reservation here. The mocktail was delicious, the tuna tartar was refreshing, and we both enjoyed our swordfish and salmon dishes. Perfectly cooked and we left satisfied. :)

Great space with excellent food and superior service. I look forward to going back soon to sample other items on the menu. Ate in the first floor dining room which was quiet enough to talk in and a stylish atmosphere. I hear the rooftop deck is fantastic on a summer evening!
