Summer evening dinner on the porch.

Returning to our favorite restaurant in Bethel for the first time in summer, we were treated to a delightful evening seated on the fully screened in front porch for a beautiful sunset dinner. As always, Brett got us off to a wonderful start recommending a fruity but full Red Gallo Cabernet... read more

Seated on time, but waited 15 min before server came to take drink order. Drinks came 20 min after being ordered and one had to be returned as it was wrong. Food was ordered and two meals were wrong, one had to be returned twice and when it was brought back the second time it was still wrong. One person... More

The food is well crafted and not pretentious. The cocktails are to die for... seriously great, strong, and not overpriced. The waitstaff and bartenders were very friendly. The sommelier made great recommendations on wines -- bonus points for treating like humans and for a lack of pretentiousness. The space is quaint and welcoming. You can tell the locals love it,...

After the first night of fine dining at this wonderful restaurant, we decided to return for a second night. I must say it is now my favorite restaurant I have ever been to! Seriously! The food is amazing, the atmosphere wonderful, and the service exceptional. We felt as though we were having a fine dining experience but the portions were... More

Sat on screen porch on a warm summer evening, and really enjoyed the setting. The wait staff told us they were a bit overwhelmed managing another group that had 22 people, but our service was pleasant and acceptable. The array of available meals was very nice, and we really enjoyed ours.

22 Broad Street promotes their steaks and Italian food. They have a great atmosphere and a nice wine list. We ordered the filet and a New York strip. The meat was not very flavorful and the strip steak was tough to eat. The Italian food at surrounding tables looked and smelled great. If we have a chance to return we... More

The Bracciole was wonderful, as were salads and pastas. Try the eggplant lasagna...which is layered with crispy fried eggplant instead of noodles. Everything was delicious and very authentically Italian. Staff was professional and knowlegeable. Great wine list! Who would have thought this place would be waiting in a small town in western Maine?

We enjoyed a delicious meal in an elegant old home, with attentive service. The waitress had personality, the room was aglow with lights and eclectic art, and our entrees were fantastic. Too full for dessert, though!

Owner was super friendly, bar felt like you were in a good friend's living room. Service was fantastic, they even have a sommelier on staff. We ordered beef braciola and the scallops special. Everything was great. We had plans to go out after but ended up hanging out in their bar.
