Our last evening in Camden we spent at Fresh & Co, which turned out to be the highlight of our extraordinary culinary adventures in this pretty coastal town. We loved the Brazilian bouillibaise in particular. Our dining neighbors were from England. This was the second visit to Camden and they were enjoying the Brazilian dish with as much gusto as...

We loved this restaurant. Extremely busy - would suggest making a reservation. A modern twist on Maine classics. Thoroughly recommend.

Did not live up to the rave reviews. Perhaps I don't appreciate their creativity, but the pasta with vegetables dish was a jumble of so many herbs and spices that it was an assault on the palate, rather than a complementary blend of flavors.

We understand the restaurant is highly crowded in high season and we've had noise problems in the past. However, when we visited - early September - it was less crowded and a delight. The service was great and the Mediterranean type food was absolutely outstanding. This is a small restaurant - with some outside seating - and reservations are highly... More

Fresh was exactly that. All items were very fresh and a unique infusion of flavors and varieties. Don't expect the "specials" to be priced reasonably as they can be pricey. Ask prices to avoid surprise when you get the bill. Reservation definitely recommended as the seating area is tightly spaced and limited.

We have eaten at Fresh a few times during our Fall trips to Camden. My wife & I are 68yo seniors fr Nashville so you know my context. We have eaten at virtually ALL the Camden restaurants but limit the very expensive ones.Atlantica and Cappy's are gone as America turns to national franchises. ALL TO SAY THAT "FRESH" IS THE...

We were seated the last table in the back by the kitchen, place is dark and loud, and we were excited to see friends we haven't seen in years! The owner chef steps out of the kitchen to scold us and give our table a lecture about how loud WE are. Sorry, but the place isn't set up to give... More

Fresh continues to be a "must stop" for dinner in Camden. The service is excellent and the food outstanding. Recommend reservations as it is very popular.

We dined here on our last night in Camden. It deserves it's top spot. Fresh & Co. global cuisine is not so exotic that there isn't something there for everyone. It's also American cuisine, as we are a culture of nationalities. I had a coconut lime seafood chopino that was fabulous, lobster claws and all. My friend has a Greek... More

My Maine resident son put us on to Fresh, saying it was one of the best ten meals of his life. We went there with old friends this week and my son is dead on! I don't know that this was one of the ten best for me, but it certainly was one of the best of the past year... More

Description
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.
