Food was good but overpriced for the location. Would go back but reset expectations. Service was very good.

I took my girlfriend to fathom for her 22nd birthday. Heather was out waitress and was well informed on menu items as well as wine list. She was very personable and made us feel as if we had been dining here for years! Food was absolutely delicious. If you go to fathom request Heather and enjoy!!

My husband and I had a delightful first visit to Fathom and we will be back. The service was impeccable. We never felt rushed or neglected. The food was delicious. I had the duck which was outstanding, beats out the duck at Red Sky believe it or not. My husband had Halibut which was a thick cut but perfectly cooked.

A lovely dinner at Fathom. We were out walking in the morning and were passing Fathom just as the hostess was unlocking the door. She graciously let us go in and make a reservation for that night, when my friend and I had hoped to celebrate her birthday. The ambience is lovely, the service is wonderful, and the food is delicious. It's step above the rest. Definitely try it for a special occasion.

We had made reservations before coming to Maine, at first they seated us in a corner with no window, just 4 walls. After complaining they moved us to be under the trees. The rest of the experienced felt rushed. Food was good though
