We absolutely loved stumbling on this wonderful, completely unexpected organic, gourmet restaurant with Jamaican specialties on a trip to Maine in August, 2013. We had the pleasure of speaking with the owner/chef at the end of the meal. He not only created the gardens from scratch, he carved the artwork displayed in the small dining room! There is something so... More

Positive comments by other reviewers are accurate, but they are charging New York City prices for rather small portions. For example, a delicious mushroom tart @ $9, was barely a taste for two of us. The goat curry was excellent, wonderfully spicy, but a small portion for the price. My wife's roulade was also very good and unusual. But $9... More

My wife and I were lucky enough to land a last minute reservation. Jessie asked me if I would be able to order dinner at that time but I didn't know the menu and didn't have cell service. We were nearby and had the audacity to drop in on these folks at noon time... Their home is the restaurant. We... More

I have had several meals here, most recently on Mother's Day, and I am continually impressed with the delicious flavors and with the owners' commitment to using local, sustainable, & organic ingredients. In addition, it just feels like there is so much love put into the food. During my most recent meal I ate fiddlehead soup as an appetizer and... More

The food wasn't good. It was hot inside, an oddity for Maine at night, the service was slow and the prices too high.

We were welcomed by Jessie and Alva into a comfortable home atmosphere where much of the dinning expierance occurs. The room included many of the art created by Alva the multi talented male half of this talented couple. Reservation are required because you pre order your meal. My wife's Halibut steak and my spinach souffle were wonderfully prepared. We began... More

My husband and I visited Maine for the first time and made a point of driving 1 hour to have dinner not once but 3 times during our visit. While getting closer to the location we could not miss this place simply by its beautiful presence. The wild flowers flanked by vegetable gardens in the front yard. This was simply... More

WE visit the kitchen garden every summer. It is by far the best Jamacian/carabbean fare in the state. I am assuming from the reaction of the other dinners all the food is great but frankly i always order the jerk chicken as it is over the top fantastic! The soups are fresh with a hint of coconut and the atmosphere... More

Alvah and Jessie, the owners of the Kitchen Garden, offer a unique dining experience. They invite you into their home with friendliness and fine food. Everything is fresh and they try to use organic ( often grown by them). The only requirement is a reservation and letting them know what you want for your courses (salad, entree, and dessert). This... More

The Kitchen Garden is one of our go-to special-treat restaurants. Jessie and Alva, the hosts/owners/chefs welcome you into their home and serve the most wonderful meals with graciousness and warmth. I've never had anything less than stellar there. All the food is locally sourced--much of it from the owners' own garden. Fresh-baked bread served in handmade baskets, beautiful food presentation,...
