“Love this place!”
Reviewed May 3, 2014

We returned to Ogunquit for a concert recently, and there was never a doubt about where we would eat. We've been to Jonathan's a number of times and just the thought of their yummy carmelized salmon (and the rest of the platter) makes my mouth water! The service was great, as always (thank you, Alana & Dorene!), and we fell in love with a cocktail called a Creamsicle. Thanks to bartender, Shannon, we're now able to recreate the recipe at home, and we'll be heading back to Jonathan's for an encore as soon as possible!

“expected more”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

The outside not appealing really. Was recommended so we went in. All was well until after food was served. They were way understaffed for the amount of people there. So, I would have to say service was not very good for the type of restaurant & cost of food. I will say the food was excellent. Would not go again.

“Easter brunch - lovely setting, average food, pricey”
Reviewed April 26, 2014

We had brunch here this past Easter. The restaurant is in a lovely setting, very cozy inside and the service was good. The food was average, nothing spectacular which was a disappointment because it was Easter AND it was quite expensive for what was served. The lamb was undercooked and fatty. We've eaten at many restaurants in this area and the value was not there.

“Everything was delicious and the service was excellent! Will Go Again!!”
Reviewed April 26, 2014

We are a family of 5, our three children are ages 16, 17, and 10. We were in Ogunguit for the day and decided to try Jonathan's for dinner and we were not disappointed. Every dish we ordered was absolutely delicious. My vegetarian specialty was amazing - delightful, delicious, and hearty! The chef even made us a wonderful soup appetizer, not on the menu, broccoli and asparagus soup with some yummy buttered bread for dipping - it was phenomenal! My two sons had Maine Seafood Pasta - the presentation was lovely and the food itself delicious. It was served with a side of asparagus and squash, also delicious. My husband had steak tips, mashed potatoes and asparagus while my daughter had the kids spaghetti and marinara. Everything was cooked perfectly, presented beautifully and tasted great! We had two waiters who handled the service - one mostly for ordering and the other for the beverages, etc. Both were very attentive and we never wanted for anything for long. They brought our food out promptly, made sure everything was to our liking and re-filled our beverages promptly. The desserts were equally wonderful - creme brulee, warm bread pudding, and raspberry cheesecake. The only thing I wish they could have had was soy milk so that I could have had my cappuccino with soy. I settled for tea and that was just fine. The meals are priced at what one would expect for a decent restaurant - around $23 - $32 per entree which included sides. Salads were around $10 - $15. Desserts were around $8 or so. The kids menu is obviously less pricey. They always have live entertainment too which was a great bonus! We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner and will definitely go back again!! A perfect end to an evening!
