This is a small but charming café-bar with a super cool décor. The service was warm, friendly and efficient with Jamie from Bar Harbour-she is a very good employee. I had one of the best Negroni's ever followed by a gin-cucumber blend that was yummy. There is of course a small local beer list at $5 for HH. We were... More

When staying in Portland we always like to end our evening with a glass of something in a congenial venue. The North Point is a new favorite. The service is prompt and friendly; the selection of beverages is extensive, and there some good snacks to go along with event. Best of all, it's a good value and open early and... More

Neat little place but drinks were overpriced and the bartender purveyed too much negativity that we just left. I would not recommend this place.

One of my favorite places to go for drinks and a cheeseboard or panini. Very romantic ambiance with interesting decor and great service! Best espresso martini around.

While the ambience and decor are nice, the portions of both food and liquor leave much to be desired. $8 for a couple slices of mediocre Serrano ham and $10 for an extremely small pour of Baileys? No thanks.

Chicken tacos rock, but the star is the skill of their bar crew! Best Manhattan...beats all others hands down! Worth the stop to Portland!

Was there for dinner with family and was completely blown away by food and service. We sat promptly after going in and we were greeted professionally by our server who let us know about food and beverage specials. We ordered drinks and an appetizer and were served in a very timely manner. We ordered dinner and the taste and presentation... More

We stopped in for dinner. The place was a little dark on the inside, but it was cozy. The sandwiches are huge. We also had a cheese board which was excellent. You can mix and match different meats and cheese
