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.

The location is in an older building in the heart of the night life section of town. This no doubt leads to the higher than appropriate prices. The food is very good and nicely presented by the chef.

Stopped in for a bite to eat prior to a movie at a local theater. We were promptly seated and the hostess was very pleasant. Our waitress was courteous and very attentive. The food is always freshly prepared, and as another review stated the salads are amazing. We usually visit 2-3 times a year and in several years worth of... More

Inovative, well prepared food served by an excellent and knowledgable wait staff. The decor is fabulous with paintings by area artists that can be purchased. The Thai salad dressing is memorable. The pork chops are done to perfection. Desserts are delicious, perhaps have dessert first??

I had an amazing salad there! The ingredients were so fresh and the dressing was delicious! The service was not good for us, though. Our waitress acted like she was ignoring us.

We were so pleased with our meals for dinner that my husband couldn't wait to get lunch unfortunately the day that we were going to get lunch they were closed because of a furnace maintenance problem. All food was freshly prepared with fabulous vegetables and good quality ingredients. Wait staff was very pleasant. Will definitely return on next visit.
