“perfection”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

This meal began with the best French onion soup I've had in many years. It moved on to the best filet mignon with Boursin sauce and ended with a chocolate sundae. Our server and hostess were as elegant as their surroundings, to which our server Jen added a voice and presence as satisfying as Michelle Dockery's on Downton Abbey. So here, with a view of Bayview Street from an easy chair (my first at a restaurant table) are a perfect setting, perfect food and perfect service. All in a lovely little town on the coast of Maine.

“Amazing!”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

We had dinner at Bayview 57 with friends last night. WOW! The braised lamb shank cassoulet is amazing!! Oh, and that's only if you have room left after having the mac and cheese appetizer! The scallops were done to perfection, which not everyone can do. And on that note, the risotto that was served with the scallops was done perfectly... perhaps the only restaurant in the mid coast area that actually makes risotto properly - what a treat! As I was sitting here thinking about dinner last night, it occurred to me that on top of a lovely setting, amazing food, great service, the prices were really reasonable. A must-go!!

“Excellent Dinner Fun setting”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

We were seated outdoors on a warm August night. There was fun music playing and our service and food were good value and great tasting. We'll definitely return.

“Wonderful atmosphere and food”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

A wonderfully relaxed evening with great food and really nice people

There was a wonderful selection of light bites and salads as well as more substantial items.

Nice seating arrangements and two bar areas as well as some outside balconies make for a spacious and well-presented dining experience
