Food was divine and service was exceptional. Can't wait to plan our next Maine getaway so we can return! Menu was a little limited, but there were also specials.

I'm generally wary of American cuisine, but Joshua's is worth visiting. My MIL and I had the filet mignon; it was perfectly cooked and served with a lovely sauce. My husband enjoyed his haddock, and he says the vegetables and mushroom risotto were phenomenal. I was also impressed by the vegetables because they are not just boiled as at so... More

Greeted by the owner's mom, warmly escorted to our table in a just right dimmed dining room.... the choices were a challenge, but we enjoyed every morsal served by an outstanding server. We rarely head north, but Joshua's is worth the drive!

Everything is fresh and perfectly prepared. The menu is limited by the local access to fresh ingredients. Everything that I have ever tried has been great. Not huge portions, but everything is freshly made. Great cocktails. Cocktail specials are routinely served. Very busy so make sure that you make reservations. An extensive and moderately priced wine menu.

We were fortunate enough to be taken here whilst on a recent holiday. Well the food was sublime, the ambiance delightful and the service impeccable. I had the duck, my husband had the steak, and we were both seriously impressed. The fact that the restaurant is made up of small rooms gives the impression of very intimate dining and keeps... More

This was my second visit to Joshua's. The first was outstanding so this time I had high expectations ...and was not disappointed. Everything about this restaurant is fantastic. The food is exquisite, always seasonal and perfectly prepared. The vegetables deserve a special mention. Not only are they delicious but are grown in the Chef's own garden. For me service is... More

I doubt if you can find a better restaurant in Ogunquit. We just returned from our second visit and I am happy to report that everything about Joshua's is superior. The food, the service, and the ambiance are all top notch. The haddock is a mainstay on the menu and I recommend it highly. The house baked breads are scrumptious... More

If you are looking for a restaurant that 'does it all' to perfection Joshua's is the answer. We had the privilege of dining here FIVE times during our trip to Maine and we would have continued days after if we did not have to leave. EVERYTHING on the menu is fresh and prepared to perfection. When you eat at a... More

Mobility impaired? No problem...Drive around back and you'll find two handicapped parking places right next to an easily negotiable ramp. Joshua does it right from start to finish....delicious home made breads, fresh salads & perfectly cooked entrees like Lamb or Halibut surrounded by fresh veggies that his Mom says now comes from the Farmers Mkt. in Portland if their own...

I keep saying this is a world class restaurant, which just happens to be in Wells Maine. It remains true. The food is excellent and served in smaller portions (or I would never have enough room to finish the meal). They start by explaining the three breads to you. I cheated, even though I am on a carbohydrate restricted diet.... More
