Red Sky is the perfect choice for a special occasion. The owners pay attention to every detail: cocktails are prepared to perfection, an amuse-bouche is a little bite of heaven, meals are made with the freshest local ingredients & imaginatively concocted, desserts are almost sinful. I had locally caught fresh cod, quite rare in New England these days, prepared simply but beautifully and it was a cloud of deliciousness that melted in my mouth! We ordered wines by the glass with 2 different courses taking the recommendations of the bartender (sommelier?) and were very impressed by the quality. Every employee was quiet, efficient and gracious. We really felt the entire staff takes pride in working at Red Sky and works well as a team. The warm ambience and entire dining experience was flawless. Considering we showed up without a reservation (each thought the other had made it) and the restaurant was fully booked -- the graciousness we were shown was remarkable. The outside storefront of Red Sky is quite inauspicious and its location on a side street on the " quiet side" of Mt. Desert Island might cause one to pass it by. Also, I'd heard it was fairly pricey so it took us a few years to get around to trying it since we were 'judging the book by its cover.' This is the best restaurant on Mt. Desert Island. It is expensive and its worth every penny! Memorable experience!
