Being from Portland, foodie capital of the world, we were delighted with our meals. The scallops were cooked to perfection, and I highly recommend the duck if it is on the menu. Small and quaint, grab a reservation in advance and enjoy your dining experience.

When we arrived around 530pm there was only one other couple dining. When we left almost two hours later, it was full. I would definitely make reservations. The food was excellent and the service was great. (although, when we left, there was still only one server for 20 people. Not sure how she kept up). The only downside to the... More

We went for my husband's birthday and the food and atmosphere was lovely. They were very accommodating to our dietary needs and very welcoming. A very sweet place and quaint so suggest making reservations in advance.

This past Saturday night we dined upstairs at Newman's. it is very private and the tables are beautifully set. Our first course was the mushroom appetizer followed by a delicious green salad. My entree was the Duck Breast which was tender and flavorful. Our service throughout the meal was very attentive and enthusiastic. For dessert we shared the chocolate pot... More

Our motel recommended and is was good. A small restaurant, intimate, table cloths and napkins, we dressed up for dinner, but others were casual. Great service, good menu and good food. Make a reservation to be sure you get in without waiting. Hostess was on it: seated us, got water and menus, cleared tables and generally helped servers. Had Shrimp... More

This is a cute location and the ambiance is there for a great dining experience but... it must have been an off night in the kitchen. Entrees we ordered did not come with the greens as the menu said, the polenta was very non-descript, the shrimp Scampi was overdone, The bread was stale and 1 green bean does not make... More

This little restaurant is a gem -- a total find. Go here for special occasions, for birthdays, and for anniversaries, and make sure that you have a reservation. If it's a special occasion too, you can bring in your own special bottle of wine. -- just contact the staff in advance.

Love this place, the food, the atmosphere its all just perfect for couples. The staff is very friendly and by looking at it from the outside you would never know just how wonderful it is inside.

We were told the owner/chef is a former chef at Stephanie Inn, which says a lot. The menu and the food were very good. The dining area is small -- and small old house.

We ordered Crab Cakes and we sent them back because they were incredibly salty. The polenta mushroom appetizer was good. The halibut was very over priced and uneventful and the romaine hearts lettuce was not good. The prawns were over cooked. We were not impressed at all. Over priced and poor quality food. Service was okay. Would not go back.
