“Incredible on all fronts!”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

The food is absolutely the freshest and tastiest at each course in all of the Ogunquit/Wells area! We are making this our top restaurant every year as a "must visit" when we vacation in Maine. The presentation was beautiful, the waitress was lovely and fun, the atmosphere was romantic and not noisy. The alcoholic drinks were as they should be, not weak like so many bars and restaurants in the area. And to top it off, the homemade pie was just as good as any I would make and everybody loves my pies! The homemade ice cream was out of this world. All this makes me want to move back to Maine.

The long wait is absolutely worth it as everything is freshly made. We were so relaxed with our dining partners. Thank the owners for their attention to detail!

“Sooooo good!”
Reviewed July 1, 2014 via mobile

We enjoyed every thing about this wonderful restaurant. The food was incredible. The preparation of the fresh from the farm (or sea) food was unique without being "over the top", and oh so tasty. This is an experience of the best that New England has to offer. The wait staff friendly, helpful and fun. We enjoyed meeting and chatting with Barbara and learning more about the amazing Jason, and the history of the restaurant. We loved our dining experience so much we came back two days later, and would have come again, but our trip was too short, but we will be back...and real soon. In part because of this amazing experience we booked a return to Ogunquit/Wells for the end of the summer.

“Fine Dining in Wells”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

Joshua's in Wells continues to be one of the best restaurants in the area. We've enjoyed dining there a number of times in the past and last Saturday night was no different. The hallmark of a good restaurant is consistency. The food, atmosphere and the service is exceptional. Our group had a wide selection off the menu. Haddock, chicken and beef. All were prepared perfectly with fresh locally sourced produce. If you decide to make the trip, be sure to try the crab cakes, outstanding!

“Great food, romantic ambience”
Reviewed June 28, 2014

We walked in on a busy night without reservations, so waited for a bit in the lovely bar. Receptionist could not have been more gracious, and the wait was more than worth it. The menu is short but obviously utilizes available fresh foods, and everything we had, from the home-made bread to the cheese and garlic ravioli,fish soup, and duck, was carefully made, piping hot and delicious. Seasonings were light, relying more on the fresh flavors of the food. we will definitely go back, but this time will make a reservation.
