“Sit in the middle dining...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2008

Sit in the middle dining room with views into the very active kitchen. Great cooking and creative menu. Scallops in pernod & cream are excellent.

“Once and Never Again”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2008

What a huge disappointment! We are residents of Portland and have always taken our guests to Fore Street in the past, but this year we thought we'd try Street & Co. instead. We had a party of six, including 2 children (8 & 11), and were seated promptly with a reservation. It was a breezy late summer evening and the bar area was cool, but when we rounded the corner to eat in the dining room (which by the way also houses the open-style kitchen), it was MUCH hotter. The room was also incredibly noisy, but these things can be overcome by a good meal. We got our appetizers in an acceptable amount of time (we did take some time deciding what we wanted from the surprisingly sparse menu), but our dinner did not arrive for another 45 minutes -- 75 minutes after we were first seated. Of our six entrees, only three were good -- a seafood stew the best, along with mussels and a shrimp linguine. But the whole fish special was uninspired, with random mouthfuls that were terribly bitter (several curious sampling diners in our party couldn't determine the source). The scallop dish was poorly cooked, served with a nutty cous cous that I could have bought at Whole Foods in a box, and perfectly sauteed, but bland and unadventurous broccoli. Seriously, it was one step up from peeling off the saran wrap on a microwave dinner. Of course, I got stuck with the worst of all -- grilled swordfish, with the same boring sides as the scallop dish, but my piece of fish was only 1/4" thick and not much bigger than a hamburger, and worst of all, dry and over grilled to the point where I tasted more char than fish. I can't think of a time when I wasted $200 quite like this. Next time we'll go to Walter's!

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2008

After reading reviews, we were really looking forward to a great evening. To begin with, it was so noisy it was difficult to have a conversation. The menu was interesting but it was limited to fish & seafood - no poultry or meat to be found. That was fine, we all wanted fish, I was just surprised. The real surprise, however, was how poorly the fish was prepared. How can a restaurant that serves only fish overcook 3 out of 4 dishes? Simply inexcusable.

“Pretty good place in Old Port area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2008

Pretty good place to eat in the Old Port area in Portland. Our waiter was incredibly helpful in choosing a wine (almost too helpful!) and our reservation was honored and we were seated immediately upon arriving. We ordered the pasta with white clam sauce - three of us ordered it at the table and we had three slightly different tasting dishes! Regardless, they were tasty but not excellent. My father order a sockeye salmon special which was truly excellent. Overall a good place for the money - dinner is not too overpriced.
