The ambiance here is lovely with its exposed beams and brick walls. The open kitchen is fun to watch, but makes the restaurant noisy and warm. The restaurant was crowded on a Sunday night, but we were seated within 30 minutes without a reservation. Our server was efficient and well-versed in the menu. The food, however, is so-so. I had the salt cod appetizer, which was a bit bland. It needs a little acidity to wake it up. The great disappointment was the lobster fra diavolo, which had gotten such high praise in previous reviews. The pasta was cooked perfectly, but wan't drained so it made what I'm sure was once a great sauce watery. The worst offense was the mussels, which had not been cleaned properly and were so gritty and sandy that we each ate just one. The lobster was good. Unfortunately, our server did not notice our untouched mussels and never asked whether we liked the dish so we had no opportunity to register our complaint and give the restaurant a chance to make it right.

This was the perfect restaurant for our last night in Portland splurge. Tucked away on tiny Warf Street, it’s easy to miss, but that would be a big mistake. Their Lobster Diavolo for Two was a tomato, lobster, clam, mussels, and calamari feast cooked with pasta and served in a huge skillet. The tables are copper topped and the brick walls and wood floors made us feel fortunate we’d arrived at this special yet cozy destination. We loved the whole experience.

We had a great Anniversary dinner. We had a reservation for 6:30pm . We went right in no waiting. I had heard that you had to wait per some reviews. I had the Boston lettuce salad appetizer very good. We both had fish it was very fresh. The staff was great. She cleaned the bones for me and took away the head as it was served as the whole fish she said some people eat it that way.
The only comment I do have is they had music playing which didn't sound very good with everyone talking in the room.

We were looking for a good but not overly fussy seafood place and this was perfect. Nice grilled fish selections. They could be a little more generous with the sides, we thought...or at least mention that the "sides" that come with the entrees are very small so we would have known to order some vegetables on the side. The hostesses were a little rude/incompetent about putting our name in for a table (45 minute wait at the start of the off season...) but the server made up for it.

We have been to Street and Co. over the last several summers and this year's visit was disappointing. It seems that success has gone to their head and the result is and overpriced menu, smaller portions of their appetizers and surly waitstaff. The food, however, remains very good and well prepared. The waitstaff needs an "attitude adjustment" and the owners should consider that overpricing doesn't mean upscale, and perhaps the reason for the restaurant being half full during the height of the summer season could be attributed to their staff and pricing. We would think twice before returning.
