We were seated quite close to another table when the restaurant was nearly empty. This created an uncomfortable situation where we could hear the entire conversation of the neighboring party for most of our dinner.

Started off very nice with appetizers and then we waited forver for the main course. When we finally finished dinner and asked for the check, the amount was incorrect, with the mistake being billed for the wrong glass of wine. The manager tried to tell me that I had ordered a differnt wine. I then asked for the menu and had to show her what I ordered.

Very unpleasant. And we were not the only table to experience such a long wait.

Food generally good but a few hiccups, such as undercooked rolls with raw dough. Then the server took an incredibly long time to give me a new roll even though seen giving other tables rolls. Service applied by multiple people so lacked continuity and we sat waiting at numerous times throughout the meal probably because one server thought the other was doing the job. Server brought warm white wine and poured it before remembering to chill it. One server would come over and describe food and choices, but then another would come to take order and give contradicting information. Final straw was overhearing our original server offer whipped cream with blueberry crisp to the adjacent table, but when I asked for whipped cream instead of ice cream to one of our many other servers, I was told that was not an available option, so I had my blueberry crisp plain.

A lovely way to spend our wedding anniversary at the Spruce Point Inn. We were seated with a picturesque view of the ocean, the food was incredible (especially my scallops) and the service was amazing. We loved the entire 2-hours of excellent food and drinks.

Executive Chef Eric Flynn and his culinary team spin creative magic out of locally-sourced ingredients, especially right-off-the-boat seafood. And don't skip dessert! Pastry Chef Ashley Wiecek's creations are delicious. Gracious friendly service in a softly-lit space overlooking the water. A memorable place to dine.

Ate there Sat night May 20 a few days after they opened for the season. The food was great the view spectacular. The service needs improvement and expect this will happen shortly as the staff gets to work together. The staff just started work for the season here as the resort just opened for the season on Tuesday and they need to get there act together . I would go back again and give them another try. The $30 lobster dinner was great value and the lobster was delicious.

We wanted to eat somewhere special for our anniversary trip to boothbay harbor. The service was great and for a short time we were the only people in the restaurant. We err seated by the window and we were able to watch the sunset which was beautiful. The food was good and the wine selection which our waitress helped us chose was very good. A loud couple without a reservation ended up coming mid our meal which lessened the dining experience slightly as they seemed only interested in drinking and talking loudly. This is no fault of the restaurant though. It was a pricey meal but tasted good and my husband and I both enjoyed our experience there. Overall a nice choice for a romantic meal for two.

The meal at SPI was a special occasion, and we were not disappointed. From the complimentary appertif, amuse bouche and then the entre, everything was very tasty and well presented. The very professional and friendly staff made the experience delightful. We highly recommend this restaurant.

Food was great and service was excellent. Only issue was the 2 person table was too narrow and too low to comfortably get your legs under the table in a normal sitting position based on the height of the seats. Unfortunately there was no staff at desk upon leaving to share this feedback. Otherwise the experience was wonderful.
