Waitress was kind of rude. We asked for a couple of accommodations on the menu and she was unable to help. Beef filet was not cooked to order and was the worst piece of filet I have had. Eggplant parm was cold. Website says the restaurant takes Amex. We tried 2 different cards to no avail. I would not recommend
The fettucini and rigatoni were definitely worth the drive upto Portland! Highly recommended!
My 2 friends and I had a wonderful evening experience when we dined there on 2/10/18. The table was lovely and the server was professional and attentive. The food from appetizers through main course and dessert was fresh, well prepared and delicious. We had a variety of dishes from the menu and each was beautifully presented and a treat for the taste buds. I will certainly return.
The food was mediocre to poor in taste, and presentation. The service was not good.
Very disappointed. Was told this was a fabulous place and we would enjoy tremendously. We had one gluten free guest and two vegetarians. They would only offer eggplant Parmesan and the gluten free pasta wasn’t cooked thoroughly. The trainee was personable and helpful but our waitress barely acknowledged our table forcing us to call out as she passed us by. Very very disappointed. Extremely pricy for mediocre food and poor service
Easy reservation process. We arrived on time (7:30) and were escorted to our table for 6...special occasion for the family. Immediately told that two menu items were not available - staples of their menu - eggplant and calamari(it was only 7:30 ...on a Saturday night!)??? and....their beer tap system was not working disappointing two craft beer fanatics! Then we found out that two other website Menu items had not been available for a month. No where on the website does it mention that the menu was only an sample...appetizers were fine, but 5 out of 6 of the entrées' were not worth the price...actually disappointing! No apology, no concession....no going back...ever! Stay away!
We were sent to the back room, which was odd since there were empty tables in the main dining room, and which I don't recommend because it feels like you're dining in a storage area next to the washrooms..... Service made up for it as it was prompt, friendly and efficient. The food was ok with some high notes (octopus, Brussels sprouts), some low (lamb bruschetta). Perfectly ok for a quick casual dine out.
The food was phenomenal, perfectly prepared sea bass and a wonderful chocolate desert. The waitress was the best I've experienced in Portland, very helpful and genuinely interested in helping customers have a wonderful experience.
Had been here before and the food and atmosphere were good. Recently went and did not have a good experience. Food was very bad which was disappointing. Would not recommend.
High cost, medium food, low service. We came here on a recommendation and we were very excited to try. We were in town to plan our wedding and required very little from our dinner service to continue our otherwise great weekend with our parents. However, after waiting 30 minutes for our drinks, our next interaction with our server, Sarah, was for her to tell us not to expect our food to come quickly if we chose to order from the entree menus. This was bizarre, as we were here for dinner and presumably that means ordering entrees, and other than waiting far too long for our first drinks, we were perfectly content having a leisurely dinner. From this interaction throughout the rest of our meal, we experienced nothing but rudeness and lack of attention (we would have ordered appetizers and more drinks had she come to our table more than three times) from our server. On top of that, our food was mediocre at best. With the high quality Portland has to offer, choose somewhere else.
