Birthday Dinner

My husband and I dined here for a second time on my birthday. Our appetizers, Entrees, Wine, Dessert were excellent. The Hostess was very pleasant and accomodating. Our waitress was very attentive and let us enjoy each course. Hopefully we will return soon.

As Michelin says, this is worth the trip, certainly within 100 miles. I've eaten here a few times, although only in the winter months. This is bistrot fare with I'd dare say a French-Canadian twist: one is well served, and sturdy food laced with enough calories to sustain a lumberjack. This is one of the most remarkable places to eat... More

Reliable quality. Great service and romantic atmosphere. We got plates with MASSIVE amounts of food on them! Try the tasting menu and let the chef choose. House red is a fantastic table wine, go for it!

My husband and I went with a few of our friends and it was an EXCELLENT meal! The food, atmosphere, waitstaff, everything was exceptional! My husband had the scallops, I had the beef wellington, and we shared the AMAZING fondue :D One of the best restaurants by far in the Lewiston area.

Personally I'm a fan of the bar menu if I'm not in the mood for a full meal - it's very reasonable and they mix it up every week with interesting choices. Their soups are always great too. Great ambiance and it's one of the nicer places to eat in town. Justin always cooks a great salmon.

I am often in Lewiston for alumni work and always make a trip to Fuel. In the spring we love the fiddlehead appetizer! I've been here 6 or 8 times now and have never been disappointed. A lovely wine list with prices far lower than you would pay in Boston or maybe even Portland. The escargot appetizer is terrific. The... More

Love the food and wine at Fuel. Whether we eat at the bar or enjoy a meal at a table, we enjoy our evening. Probably the best wine selection in the area. The bar food is fun and changes regularly, the regular menu offers a great selection of good food, and the Chef's Tasting is amazing (and perfectly paired with... More

Went on 11/29 with my wife and college age kids for my birthday. Very nice layout, well appointed tables, cool bathrooms, not to noisy. Wait staff were very professional and they even had my favorite liquor--Mount Gay rum. We did the fondue to start, which was fun and very good. I had forgotten it is a lot of work to... More
