22 Broad Street is a delightful restaurant with delicious food. We had a brunch for eight, and asked for a quiet corner as some of our group was hearing impaired. We had our own room, lovely, with a friendly and competent server. The food was great and the prices very reasonable.

Quiet, intimate restaurant with the kind of attentive service you would expect in a higher end restaurant like this one. We enjoyed our food and experience here.

Unexpected Treasure in the Woods.... We had a wonderful dinner last evening at this great little place in Bethel, Maine. When offered to dine on the patio we gladly accepted, it was a cool evening but watching the setting sun along with the background music..it was perfect. Hanna our server who was relatively new to the staff was very helpful... More

My wife and i celebrated our 3rd anniversary here. This was only the second time we've been. Both meals were excellent. The beef braciole melts in your mouth! We will be back again much sooner this time! Great wine selection as well.

Stopped in last night, by myself, to grab a martini and quick bite. Sat at the bar and ordered the gardenia martini, which was delicious!! Also, tried the beet salad and melanzana (eggplant) rollatini. Everything was great, and the marinara tasted like what I grew up with in NY as a kid. Even though I was by myself the staff... More

We decided to try 22 Broad Street based on its Tripadvisor reviews and ranking and we were not disappointed. The food is imaginative, fresh and well-prepared. We tried the two "house specials"- Crispy Eggplant and Beef Braciola, plus the swordfish- and all were excellent. The wine list is broad and well-chosen, mainly Italian, and prices very reasonable. But what sets... More

We were the only ones in the restaurant on a Tuesday night in late April. The locals call it mud season. We were greeted at the door by the friendly bartender who was also acting as sommelier for the evening. We tried the martini's as they were really unique. I had a cucumber based and my husband had a pear... More

Have eaten here twice now during visits to bethel. Great food and nice wine list. The sommelier on staff is wonderful and had a nice recommendation. I had the linguini with clam sauce which was fantastic with fresh cherrystone clams and loaded with garlic. Hubby had rigatoni with vodka sauce - also yummy. Salads were fresh and amply sized.

I started with a limetini which was the best martini I've ever had. You are immediately welcomed to this lovely cozy spot. The crackling fire and decorations are a bonus. The homemade bread is amazing. The salmon was cooked to perfection and plenty to take home. Truly exceptional in every way.
