I am a foodie and this is one of the best meals I have had in a long time! The flavors were incredible! The service was impeccable and the food was creative. Each and everything we ate was spectacular. This was by far the best meal we had in Maine and we ate at a lot of very good restaurants!... More

If you are a foodie, Fromviandous is not your restaurant. What we tasted was mostly uninspired flavors, overcooked fish and mediocre dishes. The restaurant looks nice, service is slow. And the cocktails are completely overpriced, unbalanced and it takes forever before they arrive at the table. Also wine was expensive. Pretentious and wannabe restaurant without the knowledge or ability to... More

We just happen to walk by this intimate corner building and were curious about the lack of signage as to what it was. We walked in and were blown away. The atmosphere delightful and intimate. We immediately booked for dinner the next evening. Cozy, romantic, cushy seating and intimate. The wonderful place had all of the qualities we were seeking... More

My wife and I had an anniversary meal at Fromviandoux in Camden We went at the recommendation of our B&B hosts. We were not disappointed. As the venue was a change in our original dining plans, we called up and asked if a table were available on short notice and were quickly booked. The restaurant is located just a few... More

Four of us dined here on 10/10 and were blown away by its ambiance, innovative menu selections and the first rate service. We had dined at Camden's most expensive and over the top restaurant the night before, and Fromviandedoux met every benchmark of the former. Appetizers and entrees were varied and delectable. I've never had better pommes frites in my... More

restaurant looks nice, service is slow. Took over 30 minutes to get a mediocre cocktail while we were seated at the bar. The bartender ignored us completely. The food was ok, not much flavor and very pedestrian. Drinks are super expensive, food is priced nicely. If you just want to have a quick bite (when service allows you) this restaurant... More

A delightful upscale restaurant with wonderful food and a delightful young couple as chef and hostess/waitress. Our dinners(4) could not have been better, definitely on the gourmet side. The wines were excellent and probably fairly priced but we think too expensive, if fact, a turnoff. Most people do not want to pay $16 for a glass of cab. If they... More

Exceptional brunch with charming and knowledgeable server. The food was sublime. The lobster Benedict was wonderful,fritatta was excellent, and duck hash was a perfect plate. The complimentary tiny pear puff pastries and wonderful muffins and breads were a treat. Excellent.
