Excellent choices with an Italian and Maine flair, such as risotto with lobster. It's fairly small and intimate, but the tables are sufficiently well spaced so you can have a business conversation. The wine list is small, well chosen, and reasonably priced.

This is a wonderful, upscale restaurant that changes their menu frequently. I had the scallops, and they were so tender and juicy. This is a MUST GO AGAIN restaurant!

Exquisite menu, expertly conceived and sourced locally. Oysters are from Bar Harbor. Lobster bisque was deconstructed, bacon crispy, fresh chunks of lobster, delicate cream sauce poured at the time of service. Craft cocktails are amazing. Best restaurant in downtown Bangor.
