Stopped in here for an after dinner glass of wine on 9/16/14. Greeted immediately, staff is friendly and knowledgeable, very nice wine list. Dinner menu looks mouthwatering and we will be back.

We did not have reservations for the evening but was told that we could either return in 2 hours or sit at the bar. We chose the bar and were not disappointed. Wonderful selection of very inventive cocktails. The food was exceptionally good also. Definitely worth a return visit, but as to not be disappointed, we will make reservation when... More

If you are looking for a memorable dining experience in Bangor, look no further! The Fiddlehead restaurant offers delicious, creative dishes in a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The variety (and the names) of their hand-mixed cocktails had me smiling before I even had a chance to look at the rest of the menu. I went for the smoky martini with... More

Great meal! Tomato tart to start, very flavorful & light dough. So good. I had the ribs, which had a mustard feel, totally different than any rib seasonings in the south. Great to try! & the crab bake, very light & tasty. Wonderful service even though we sat at the bar. Great atmosphere! Great meal!

What a great restaurant in Bangor. We had the tomato tart and the ginger fried chicken. And the lamb was very tasty and they had a wonderful wine list. Our server was very helpful and the ambiance was great. I even loved the bathrooms which have a sense of humor "Employees must wash hands - after using the facilities -... More

What a great find here in Bangor. These folks don't fiddle around with the customers nor the fantastic entrees that they present to their guests. We went in on a Saturday night without reservations and were warmly greeted and offered two seats at the bar, which we enjoyed greatly. The beer, wine and drink menu is diverse.We started with a...

As a party of 8, our waiter had a guaranteed gratuity of 20%. His service did NOT live up to that guarantee. When we complained to the owner she apologized and rushed off to question the server who stated that he came to our table 3 times to take our order...a bold faced lie, we waited 35 minutes for him...

This is a restaurant whose "reach exceeds its grasp". It has an ambitious menu but doesn't always succeed in its efforts. Very good--the spinach salad with smoked salmon and radishes. Also the service was quite pleasant and attentive. Good--the appetizer of gnocchi with shrimp and the lamb chop Needs lots of improvement--the time to serve the meal. As attentive as... More

Sat at the bar and watched the bartender make some wonderful craft cocktails. Food was excellent, duck spring rolls, ginger fried chicken and waffle, watermelon salad, burger and pierogi. A must visit in Bangor.

I travel to Bangor quite often and always make it a priority to eat here for dinner. Whether I can from a meeting or the gym they treat me with such kindness and always try to find room for me at the bar. The place has such good energy. The staff there are so wonderful. And the food menu is... More
