The Last Unicorn closed for a brief time and reopened better than before. I would say their opportunity is to vary their menu more frequently - it seems like it is always the same. The food is, however, always good and reliable. A consistent experience. Try the cheese dip and for lunch the roast beef with horseradish sauce is always... More

We had received a gift certificate and decided to make it a date night. Neither of us had been here in years (although now I am not sure why we hadn't been). We got the cheese dip appetizer, two wonderful meals, and two desserts to go home. The meals we slightly more expensive than some chain restaurants, but we well... More

This restaurant is located In a nice town in the middle of Maine. We were seated outside in a Nice pedestrian area. The restaurant has a good menu for good price. So no high end cuisine and no sky high prices.

The food here is very fresh and flavorful. They mix up their menu depending on what is available and aren't afraid to get creative. One of the best menu items is the amazing cheese dip!! My only two negatives are that the interior could use a little sprucing up, and I wish they served brunch. You will not be disappointed.

After church, this evening, we decided to go out for dinner. There were several choices, but we chose "the Last Unicorn" It was as usual a good choice. However, then item I wanted was on the menu, but not available. So the choice went from Eggplant to Tenderloin. The Tenderloin wa rare as I like it. What was remarkable were... More

Ive eaten the bistro style cuisine at Last Unicorn numerous times and loved it every time. For those wanting a plain meat & potatoes, this might not be right, but if you want a little flair without extravagant price, this is the place. Since my husband and I had celebrated our engagement with the last unicorn in 2013, we decided... More

We enjoyed the plantings around the outdoor patio, which set this place apart from its neighbors. The service was good and was friendly even if the food was not special. The Thai fried catfish was not local and a very small piece (I wasn't looking for a very large one but more than three fork-fulls). The pita bread was not... More

Last Unicorn is definitely my Go -To restaurant in Waterville, my family has never had a bad meal dining there. The pork chops are very good as are fish choices and the specials are always unique. They have homemade soups that are quite good and usually have spices or flavors that are different. The desserts are WONDERFUL and one could... More

The Last Unicorn has an ambitious menu, representing a diverse range of spices and flavors. Pasta, a variety of meets, and fish can be found on the menu. Generally speaking, teh chef executes well. The atmosphere is friendly and comfortable. Service was attentive, but the kitchen was rather slow. All in all, a nice experience.
