The service was slow, but the staff was nice and courteous. The food is very expensive for what you get.
Having drinks outside was absolutely beautiful with all of the flowers then the ocean in the background.
Our server was very accommodating in getting us a table outside which was a change to our original reservation due to our size.
Service and food were very good.
A little noisy with the two tables beside us with children.
Mosquitos were very bad the minute the sun went down. Maybe consider spraying. We use a great non-toxic spray at our cabin in the middle of the woods. It is amazing. The name of the company is Mosquito Squad.
The "duck confit" special was anything but. I'm assuming the chef has not had duck confit. What is was in fact was Top Ramen Noodles (I swear if it wasn't Top Ramen it tasted exactly like it including having the same noodles) Soup with a hint of duck via maybe 3 tiny pieces. Not even close to duck confit.
The Lobster poached in butter was prepared well and delicious. However I have never seen lobster that small before and venture a guess that they used Canadian lobster as Maine restricts catch size. For a $40 entree you'd think they could have gone at least to a 1 1/2 pd lobster at this time of year.
View was lovely but inside was extremely loud and no effort made by the waitstaff to control the experience.
Excellent food and attentive service. Portions are rather small for the price.
First negative food experience here, but still can't beat the setting. Eggs Benedict-eggs were way over done and home fries under done. Bloody Mary's and Hollandaise sauce were amazing!
It was great and the view is super. The cocktails were awesome. The bisque was great. Could always have slightly bigger portions.
I was reluctant to return to Sea Glass after a disastrous meal last fall, and was pleasantly surprised when I returned with friends last week. The food was really good and the service much improved. I was especially impressed by the friendliness of all the staff. I will return again!!
My husband and I were out shopping on a hot day and was up for an adventure; so we drove to Cape Elizabeth Maine and had a lovely dinner at the Inn by the Sea. The setting is absolutely beautiful We started with their first course special of 10 Oysters and a bottle of Veuve Cliquot champagne. This was great but what needed to be done to make it awesome and "knocked out of the park" was that the oysters needed to be ice cold. The champagne was phenomenal!! We then moved on to their cheese board and it was spectacular. To assure that we would have room for dessert, we shared the Inn by the Sea burger. It was cooked to perfection. We ended with the most superb short cake. It was too bad that there was a threat of thunderstorms because it would have been something to stroll down to the beach and to have dined on their patio. Next time!! :D
Beautiful property and lunch was delicious. Only complaint was the dining room was freezing
Lobster taco appetizer - ahhhh-MAZING! Pork Belly burger - melts in your mouth...
Outstanding food, attentive (and just the right amount) of service, gorgeous view - all add up to a perfect evening...
Great food, views and service....what more could you ask for.
The setting is spectacular. Food is very good and service was excellent.
Wonderful time the food and view were great but Rachel our server was the greatest.
A great spot unfortunately the service and food don't quite live up to the price point and the potential of the place. Servers are pleasant but lack any kind of knowledge of the wines (consistently asking to see the wine choice on the menu to make sure they "get it right") , last time we took over opening the bottle because the server wasn't confident she could do it . Similarly we had to ask not to fill the glass to the rim. Clearly no training and the positive attitude can't make up for this gap between what the restaurant wants to be and the very basic level of service.
Food was good except mine came totally uncooked in the middle, they apologized and I received the cooked entre after my husband finished his. Great atmosphere and setting but they simply can't charge gourmet restaurant prices for good, not exceptional, food and diner type service.
Definitely worth the drive from Portland. A real hidde jewel!
The food was excellent (a little bit pricey). Our waitress was very attentive. Will go back for dinner there again.
Went with three girls and had great wine, but the food was only fair. The veggie pasta dish tasted like a lean cuisine and the chicken dish was good. I have the salad and it was gross. Old lettuce just in a pile. Kind of odd. Not good at all. No one wants old shredded iceberg lettuce in a pile.
No your average hotel restaurant. Outstanding treat in an out of the way location.
I took my mom for Mother's Day. I made reservations for breakfast and they called to see if I wanted to change it to the brunch for $68/person. I opted to order off the menu. I'm glad we did because our total, including tip, was $75 for the both of us and we had mimosas. I'm not sure what extras came with the buffet to justify twice the price, but since the food was only average I think I would've felt I way overpaid if I'd done the buffet. The service was excellent though.
We spent a weekend at Inn by the Sea and had dinner at Sea Glass on Saturday night. The meal was disappointing. Not bad but did not live up to the expectations of the hotel. The bone in filet had a combination of cold blue cheese and sun dried tomatoes on top, which was very odd. The mushrooms served with it were dried.
The hotel is a great place to stay, but there Sea Glass was a disappointment.
Our party of 4 arrived at 6:55 for a 7 pm reservation. We were sent to the bar area to wait because our table was not ready and they were "busy". Long story short, we were seated sometime around 7:15 and did not get our drinks until 7:45. The food was delicious, but the waitress asked how our meal was when my plate was nearly cleaned. They were apparently understaffed, but there were many empty tables, so it was difficult to understand the delays. For a restaurant of this caliber, the service was surprisingly bad. The atmosphere is terrific.
Attended their Easter brunch and was more than disappointed. The food seemed ordinary, overcooked and out for too long. And when we received the bill, we wanted to spit. What a rip-off! We have eaten dinner there on numerous occasions, but this brunch cost more. Seriously? $100 a person for stale eggs benedict?
I used to love going here and the location is superb. We went for Easter buffet and actually had to stop someone to ask if they could take our drink order. The food was OK - not worth the $68 per plate buffet. It saddens me to write this because I used to be a big fan of this place.
We went for Easter brunch. The buffet was incredible. Going to try and return next year!
Rachel is a great server. She took very good care of us, as did Mark and Toby.
We had lunch to celebrate a 50th birthday. I requested special cupcakes and they turned out amazing. Everything about it was perfect.
I can't wait to go back. I plan on making it a local drop in place for my Husband and I.
Having dined at Sea Glass before, we knew we would be able to find something on the menu that could be altered to be vegan (no meat, fish, dairy, eggs). We were very pleasantly surprised to see that the restaurant now has vegan menu options on every menu! Choosing a compassionate and healthy diet should be this easy! It was nice not having to take extra time and trouble while ordering to order meals that we could eat. We ordered the foraged mushrooms, asparagus with roasted garlic and our new favorite Harvest Shepard's Pie (mushroom 'meat', corn, peas, gravy, romanesco and topped with creamed sweet potatoes)... wow, what flavors and so filling! Needless to say we will be back again as often as we can!
This restaurant got great reviews and we were staying at the inn, so thought it would be a convenient place with great food. Convenience is all we got. We were especially disappointed since we only had 4 nights in Portland and there are so many great food places. The beer Mac and cheese was good as a side, but also came as a side with my husband's meal. The pistachio cannolies were terrible for dessert and my shepherd's pie was horrible as well. The waiter also seemed very inexperienced and did not know the menu at all.
If you saw their Restaurant Week menu online and thought the duck egg rolls, scallops, or filet mignon would be worth the visit, I'm sorry to say those dishes weren't on their actual Restaurant Week menu. I still had a good meal: mussels with curry (very generous appetizer portion) and a salmon dish that had been listed as having spicy kale and some other garnishes. Nothing about the dish was spicy at all. The salmon was cooked fine, but the dish could have been bolder. Given that the dining room was full of old people, I imagine the chef is reluctant to be too interesting with the food. The place has potential, but for that money (or less) you could have more creative dishes downtown.
Had a nice dinner on acSaturday night, unfortunately too late to enjoy ther view and too cold to enjoy the gardens. Those things are special in spring and summer
Our food was good, especially the mussels, but the menu is limited at this time of year. Will look for more variety when we return in nice weather.
Brought my husband here for his birthday breakfast and his lobster omelette didn't disappoint! My sons had the hash and the pancakes and both were great. Our waiter surprised us with a piece of birthday cheesecake with a candle on top! Service was excellent and the ambiance and view of the ocean were spectacular. A special place for a special occasion.
This was our first time at the Sea Glass. We ate here in the off season when they were offering special pricing for a three course dinner. Their normal pricing is probably fair because everything was excellent, but I'm not sure I would normally rate it an outstanding value.
Beautiful view, food only mediocre and overpriced. Much better places in southern Maine, the breakfast service was one of the worst we've had.
Someday I will visit this place in the summer but we visit every year in the winter as a getaway and always dine at Seaglass at least once for dinner. It is always fresh and delicious with interesting entrees. Had the vegan Shepards Pie this time and loved it. I for one do not like Shepards pie normally as I am not a meat/potatoes gal but this was meatless and interesting. We took our time and had a lovely Valentine's meal. My only disappointment was when the bill came and we found our meals were added on top off the prix fixe price putting the total at a staggering amount! Even with a bottle of champagne I almost fell over that this was not picked up by the waitperson before the bill was delivered. It was quickly corrected but a little more attention to detail on the bill would be an area for improvement. Again, the food and service are always great and we have not had issues like this before so perhaps it was a one-off. Anyway, love the place and will continue to go.
Salmon dish in particular was spectacular! Go here for lunch on a sunny day. Views of the water are gorgeous.
We had delicious food. The corn chowder was amazing! The pork shank was tender, and the serving sizes were substantial for a high end restaurant. Neither of us could finish all of our food. Wonderful service and very prompt to our attention.
Really horrible menu. Poor interpretation of comfort standards. Over use of sweet, rather than savory. Noodles with salmon dish too salty. Sent back a chiffonade of romaine salad with overly sweet dressing & butternut guacomole. Soggy rather than crisp duck spring rolls, and disaster shepherds pie covered in sweet potato and sweet sauce. Bland bread pudding dessert. Wine list good, but over 2x market price multiples. Last time we try here. Too bad, great setting, could be a real gem.
We spent our anniversary here and our server made it a very special night. She helped us with the extensive wine list and made us feel very comfortable. The scallops and risotto was amazing as well as the pork shank, but the bread pudding topped off the evening. We plan on returning again real soon.
A delightful surprise. Quiet, classy, and casually elegant. Excellent menu- varied with sonething for everyone.
New chef since we were here last (2014) and there is a difference. All items we had, "land" burgers, fries, salmon entree, scallops entree, bread pudding etc. for dinner were great. Breakfast, scrambled eggs were fine, home fries really good and blueberry pancakes just great. Service at all meals was superior, folks were all nice, attentive and on their game
