We were calling at seven on a weeknight and could only get a reservation for the outdoor garden and I am glad we did, it is a lovely setting in the evening with a fountain across the way and easy listening music playing. I started with the Caesar salad which is a large portion and had the shrimp, fresh and... More

Terrific food along with highly proficient Service in warm and elegant surroundings make this restaurant a place to enjoy. Breakfast there is a wonderful start into the day.

We were a large party of about 10 and from the second we arrived no one wanted to help us. The snotty hostess kept harassing us for our menus, our drinks were delivered after our first course; my friend had to sit with her lobster carcass staring at her through her entire dessert. My other friend has an allergy to... More

Great outdoor eating area in the summer months. Food is tasty but expensive for the amount. Service can't be beat

Made reservations here months before our visit to Portland. The day of our reservation the restaurant called to confirm and tell us they were only serving in the Garden Cafe rather than the regular dining room. We walked over to the restaurant and were able to see that they had changed the menu as well to a very limited offering.... More

Outdoor patio is beautiful, staff are awesome, and food is good. The only thing I would change is that should be more selection. Kids menu has a pretty large selection compared to other places, but adult menu is lacking variety.

Off the hotel lobby in this beautifully restored century old armory, the selections and attention from our knowledgeable server were greatly appreciated following an all day drive from home. Freshest, closest grown ingredients and drinks prepared exactly as requested made our meal in the semi formal dining room even more memorable.

It's located in the Regency Hotel, and we went here after a Sunday night graduation at Merrill Auditorium. They were nice enough to stay open for our party of 8 and I think if we hadn't been there, they probably would've been closed, which is unfortunate because the food is good. The host and our server were very friendly and... More

This place is in the cellar of the Regency Hotel, not where you would want to go on a beautiful summer day but nighttime is good for a drink - espresso martinis are the best! I've had lunch here also and the food is good but nothing memorable.

My husband and I enjoyed an early, pre-theater dinner at Twenty Milk St. last week. We enjoyed the very upscale atmosphere at this luxury hotel. Since we arrived at 5PM, we were the only guests and were treated royally by the very friendly waiter. He delivered our meal promptly so that we could get to the theater on time. We... More
