Lovely atmosphere, we were early for our reservation, the hostess was able to give us a desirable table by the window. The hummus appetizer & pita was incredible. Lamb steak with tzatziki was incredible.

We just walked in by chance. The first evening they could not accomodate us and we made reservations for the following evening, and boy, am I happy we did. The charming Rada at the entrance and her husband Steven behind the stove run a great place. The drinks, the food, the service, everything was just perfect in this bistro. We... More

Fresh was recommended by our Inn nearby. We had a wonderful experience and would rate it as one of our best meals ever. Our server knew food and the menu, and had good recommendations. When they were out of a wine we recognized and was in our price range, they came back with a better wine we did not know.... More

A fine dining experience should include good food, an elegant and/or friendly ambiance, good service and good conversation. My dinner with my partner was ruined by the noise level of the restaurant....we could not carry on any conversation at a table for two. Our server was very good....after shouting the specials at us, she was able to serve our dinners... More

We had dinner after a sunset windjammer cruise in September in this intimate, inviting spot. Our server was prompt, professional and gracious. The bread was excellent--rustic & crusty, just as I like. I had the Napoleon (heirloom tomato and roasted eggplant) salad for an appetizer--bursting with flavor and varied textures. The Black Sea moussaka was a rare delight--goat cheese bechamel... More

Some (minor) negatives. The online menu must be for lunch. The dinner menu was much more upscale, and somewhat more expensive. Parking is REALLY tight; parked a block away. Paid $7 for a 10 or 12 oz glass of a local craft beer. Not even a pint! Now the good stuff! The food was EXCELLENT! We had the two specials,... More

Very interesting global menu. Warm and welcoming with lovely décor and ambiance. Tuna appetizer, lobster ravioli, and salted caramel tart with black pepper ice cream were the stars of a very satisfying dining experience. We all loved this place!!

This place was to die for. Lobster ravioli will never be the same in my mind again. Worlds apart from what one would expect. Inspiring and divine. Don't question it, just eat here.

A relative newcomer to Camden's waterfront dining scene, Fresh serves innovative interpretations of classic coastal New England dishes inspired by the rich culinary traditions of the Mediterranean region. Self-described as one part neighborhood cafe, one part elegant bistro & bar, Fresh is designed around an open kitchen, where Head Chef Steve Steeves, and his Sous Chef Kyle Ruger, can be seen busily toiling over open flames preparing mouth watering and deeply satisfying dishes.Fresh works with local farmers, growers and purveyors to source products with integrity, flavor and soul, and incorporate seasonal offerings into their menus nightly. The result is food that is honest, straightforward and pays homage to the bounty of the local region of Maine we are so privileged to call home. Using ingredients in their peak and preparing them minimally and with respect allows Fresh to capture the essence of the season and bring it straight to your table.The Fresh experience is about more that just the food. A sincere effort to educate our staff on all aspects of food and wine culture is the basis for our service philosophy. The welcoming staff at Fresh goes to great lengths to make diners feel at ease, comfortable and well taken care of. Warm hues, soft lighting and an unexpected quirkiness encourage guests to settle in, get comfortable, and have a great time.
