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.

Who would have thought it? A fantastic restaurant in a less visited part of the US...... One word can only express my feelings: GO. I would never have expected to find a restaurant of this quality in Bangor ME and it blew my expectations out of the water. The staff we lovely and their $70 four course set menu offered brilliant taste and value. If only I lived nearer I would be back in a heartbeat.

If you are a foodie, you don’t want to miss this place. It is tapas style German fusion restaurant and well worth the drive from Bar Harbor for dinner. The innkeepers have lots of experience cheffing in different parts of the world so you will be pleased; and your wallet will thank you compared to some of the prices in Bar Harbor.

The food prepared at Rosella is impeccably prepared to delight. This is not your neighborhood sushi bar. The fresh ingredients are brought to amazing heights of tastefulness with subtle and sometimes not so subtle glazes you could not imagine combining but results in wanting more. 5 stars!

About the restaurant
Bringing some LA vibes to the northeast. REGARDS draws inspiration from the diverse food culture of Los Angeles. We highlight flavor profiles from Japan and Mexico with the freshest of Maine produce and products.

The menu at REGARDS has bright, zippy ceviches and crudos, rich tamales, plump Argentinian shrimp tacos, along with mezcal cured hamachi collars, crab rice and grilled cabbage with caesar.

Clarified lime margaritas with eucalyptus or our gin and sotol martinis with hibiscus pair with our adventurous menu. We pour natural wine and have a large selection of curated mezcals and tequilas.

A place for us and for you. Might not make sense, but it sure is delicious. Across the street from Reny's. Nearby Maine College of Art, Portland Stage Company, State Theatre, Empire Comedy Club and Blue Jazz Club.

I recently had the pleasure of dining at Regards in Portland, Maine, and it was an extraordinary experience from beginning to end. This gem, led by a rising star chef Neil Zabrieski, masterfully blends coastal cuisine with an innovative Japanese-Mexican flair, creating a unique and unforgettable dining adventure. The ambiance at Regards is both warmth and inviting. The soft lighting and thoughtfully arranged seating enhance the cozy yet sophisticated atmosphere. The service is welcoming and none pretentious at all, which I love. The staff were warm, attentive, and well-versed in the menu, offering insightful recommendations and ensuring a seamless dining experience. The menu features locally-sourced seafood. Tuna, shrimp, and a variety of fish are Portland’s best ingredients. Each bite is a harmonious blend of textures and flavors, showcasing the chef’s soul and creativity. They use heirloom corn and milled it in-house. Sourcing the best product from Masienda, they turn it into delicious tortillas to pair with the fish collar dish. Lots of fermentation such as masa miso and many things. This is the star of my night. To taste something beautiful and different is a lifetime experience. Regards in Portland, Maine, provides an exceptional dining experience that beautifully marries coastal cuisine with inventive Japanese-Mexican flavors. The combination of a stunning ambiance, extraordinary food, and top-notch service makes this restaurant a must-visit. Whether you’re a local or a visitor, Regards promises a culinary adventure that you won’t soon forget. Thank you for your hospitality and an amazing food memory on my travel journal. I eagerly look forward to returning and exploring more of their exciting menu.

We sat inside on first floor and it was quiet. Outside is lovely. Dinner and service were wonderful.
