A great restaurant with a unique menu.

Our trip to the Fiddlehead restaurant on December 28th was very much by chance. We had driven downtown to find our favourite restaurant closed due to the snowstorm and started calling around to find a place that looked suitable and remained open. Thankfully the Fiddlehead was open for business, so... read more

Three of us had a business dinner at Fiddleheads and were treated to a very pleasant experience with smiling servers servers and good food. While the menu is a tad limited all of us found items to enjoy. The chef did visit our table and was very welcoming. Prices are reasonable and the food was very good. This was a... More

Service, food and cocktails always spot on. Menu is a bit limited but more than adequate. Martinis are always great and they have a good wine selection.

I have had bad experiences at Fiddlehead before for different reasons and boycotted this restaurant for a few years. I decided to give it one last chance. I am fair when I say it was not a positive experience this time either. Their dishes were ok, nothing to rave about, no effort to plate the food. The plates did not... More

We've been here a few times now during visits to Bangor and have never been slightly disappointed. Best haddock I've ever tasted... Five diners on this visit and not one vague criticism on the dishes from apps to dessert. I don't think it's possible to get a less than perfect dish, but if you do I have no doubt the... More

I have had the best steak of my life at Fiddlehead. I have had the best glass of wine in my life at Fiddlehead. But what really keeps me coming back is the way the staff makes you feel. The ambiance is fantastic. The food is divine. But the way the staff treats you every second you are in there...year... More

The staff is welcoming, the service is exceptional and the food is astonishing. Simple foods, tastefully prepared and adorned without pretense, served by people who make you feel like your comfort matters to them. My wife and I go to The Fiddlehead for every major milestone date throughout the year as well as when we just want great food.

The atmosphere is great. Small and cozy. I suggest you plan ahead and get reservations. The menu is limited and small. The food is good, but a little to be desired. I felt it was almost trying too hard. I would go again in hopes the menu had developed more.

I have been to fiddlehead with my wife 3 or 4 times and every time it has been excellent. The service, atmosphere, and the food are all outstanding. This restaurant is definitely one of the top five restuarants in Bangor.
