This restaurant has been recommended a few times so we decided to go with friends. When calling for a reservation you leave you name-phone number-and date and time that you would lie to dine. If you don't hear from them all is good - they only call if they cannot accommodate you. The restaurant is in a former home, so... More

Appetizers we're fried soft-shelled crabs and lobster purses which were both divine! The pumpkin and coconut soup was soooo good!!! The rack of lamb was the best I have ever had. I want everything again right now!!! Be sure to bring cash or checks (no plastic accepted) and take along your own wine! Definitely call for reservation!

Do not drive by, even though you may want to, this was an incredible dining experience! The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. We were very impressed by the menu and portions. Most important, the quality of the food was outstanding! We felt pampered by the special people and care they put into every detail. We can't wait to come back!

After driving by this place for about as long as it's been open, this was the year we finally gave it a try during our annual Maine vacation. Had read LOTS of other reviews, mostly very complimentary so I don't know what took us so long. Based on almost every reviewer recommending them, we started with the lobster purses. Since... More

Sharing a plate costs about ten dollars and they enforce it even for kids, the service was good but the meals were confusing and to be honest bland and overpriced, Trying to be some sort of trendy hip restaurant but based on nothing. will never go back and would not send my worst enemy!!

We've dined in many big city restaurants and this spot is at the top of the list. Excellent food and service especially the special haddock with lobster and chef salad (which could have been a meal by itself). This was our 6th dinner and best dinner in the York area this vacation.

Fantastic (so fresh, so tasty, so interesting) food, huge portions, lovely people-- as always. This time, however, we felt somewhat rushed, particularly for such a relatively expensive restaurant. We will still absolutely go back, but we were ever so slightly disappointed for the first time ever here.

I had been trying for years to get my husband to take me to Frankie & Johnny's---he had it in his head that it was strictly a vegetarian, "yuppy" place. We went for dinner and he was pleasantly surprised that he could actually get a really nice carnivorous meal! He was not disappointed. Everything is delicious and freshly prepared......even if...

So, my hubby and I were looking for a place to dine before we went to the Ogunquit Playhouse. We started driving and the traffic in the center of town was congested with no parking nearby. So we kept driving down Route 1 thinking we would find something out of the crowded center of town. Yikes, then there was nothing... More
