“Always a Treat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2014

Incredible food & presentation in a comfortable setting!
Have had the pleasure to return to Joshua's on a weekend getaway on several occasions. The 1st was a surprise; the 2nd, an affirmation of how great the food is; the last was just as great as the previous experiences!

“Simply the best in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

This place is the best fine dining in town. Very fresh meals and excellent drinks. Try the blood orange cosmo when it is in season.

“Birthday meal to remember”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2014

From the initial greeting, to the delicious bread basket, blood orange Cosmo made with REAL fruit juice, the tenderloin appetizer to the mouth watering entrée and to end with dessert to die for. Do I need to say more. This establishment surpassed all my expectations. Filet cooked to perfection and the mashed potatoes tasted like my moms (whose no longer with us) :)
Special occasion for sure and if you have money to spare this is the place to go. It is not cheap or fast, however it is worth every penny spent!
We now have a new favorite restaurant in Wells!

“Excellent food, wine, service and value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2014

My wife and I try to frequent Joshua's restaurant at least on a monthly basis; it is our "go-to" restaurant and has been for years. They always have some superb "specials" in addition to a menu which will have something to please everyone, vegans included. Joshua is the owner/chef and is always on site, his parents are usually there to host. and bartender Christine is always a pleasure. The wine list has many offerings and bartender Christine is always a pleasure to talk to and to get recommendations for wine or martinis.
I believe they are now open seven evenings every week. Give Joshua's a try, I'm sure you'll be pleased.

“Farm Fresh Dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2014

Joshua's is about 20 minutes from Kennebunkport and easy to find on the Post Road. We found the food farm fresh and the chef creative. We were there in the winter and had the feeling that the staff really appreciated us. The waitress appeared happy to be working there and touted the chef. The father of the chef, Mort, gave us a good sense of their mission and actually ran the farm from which much of the food originated.
