This menu seems to change but they know the lobster and grits is a hit - I’ve seen it on the past 4 versions of the menu. We had an app, salad, and 2 small plates for two people. Little pricey given the portion sizes...More

We really enjoyed our dinner at Coda. The goat cheese fritters were delicious as was my salad. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu choices, and made several good recommendations. The atmosphere was quirky and somewhat upscale, but not stuffy at all. Would...More

First off: make reservations. The place isn’t that big and we saw people get turned away. The restaurant itself is pretty casual but with a fancy fare (fancy dress not required). I highly recommend the goat cheese fritters, lobster and grits, and the pot roast....More

This small plate restaurant had lots of choices. The apple cranberry salad and warm cookie with ice cream were my highlights, My husband loved the sausage special and mussels. Service was cheerful and not rushed. My mixed drink was delicious.

We recently enjoyed a fabulous meal at Coda. Everything was excellent but the corn chowder deserves special mention as it was one of the best I have tried. The pot roast was also very good and as good or better than any pot roast I...More

Excellent food matched by perfect service. Coda is a newer entrant into the SW Harbor restaurant scene but had certainly carved out a spot near the top of the list. Very inventive menu — all of which was excellent. The curried cauliflower was to die...More

The food was excellent. Service was friendly and attentive. We arrived on a Monday night at 6:45 for a 7pm res., and were seated immediately as there were only 2-3 other diners in the restaurant. This was a little off-putting at first, but by 7:30...More

We were a little weary of “lahbstah “ after a week around Acadia National Park. After hiking up and down Cadillac Mt one afternoon, we wanted something different. Coda serves small plates, but do not be fooled. There is plenty of food. We started with...More
