Busy night but received excellent service (ask for Kathy) and great food. Steamed whole lobster and almond-crusted haddock. Perfectly prepared. Met the owner, David, very nice & cordial. Nice to be able to BYOB. Will definitely return when in the area.

I know it's a seafood place,but they had special on rack of lamb. All I can say is 5 stars. Dinner does take awhile because everything is made to order.byob. must have a reservation.

My husband and I went to dinner at Yellowfin's last night. From start to finish, everything was wonderful! We had crab cakes for an appetizer. They appeared overcooked when they arrived but they tasted delicious! I had stuffed haddock-yum! My husband had swordfish. The salads could have had a little less dressing but that is a minor complaint. The service... More

We're local to the area and have given this place a number of chances to get better, but it just doesn't happen. We think it's just a lack of care by the owner. He is not friendly or very warm and just doesn't make you feel very welcome. If there's an error that needs to be corrected, he'll argue you... More

Went with family for our anniversary celebration. Very disappointed as food was undercooked (both planked salmon and the rack of lamb) and very pricey.

White table cloths, highly trained staff, high, high quality food. We arrived with a reservation fur four but needed to add four more people, not a worry due to impeccable management. This establishment offers BYOB, a massive bonus but does not diminish the high end value of the cuisine. This place melds European bistro and New England traditional fare. Food... More

This is a dry restaurant, bring you own drinks, glasses are provided and no corking fee is charged. What a quaint, clean, classy restaurant! So pleasantly surprised! The menu offers something for everyone, diverse but not extensive. Our shrimp cocktail was the freshest we have ever had, and we eat a lot of shrimp. My swordfish was cooked perfectly and... More

We have always made at least several trips to this restaurant each year. It is hidden in Ocean Park, an enclave of Old Orchard Beach, Maine. This is a BYOB restaurant,( no liquor sales in Ocean Park) but nearly everyone brings their favorite bottle. The food is excellent and the service is attentive but not overbearing. Check out the coral... More

I have lived here year-round for many years and there are a few places you would like to keep to yourself. I know that's selfish, but this isn't one of those places that has not been spoiled by it's successes. I tend to go off season when the tourist are gone, even then the place fills up. The food is...
