We stopped in for a drink based on a recommendation on an early Friday afternoon/evening. While we will usually have a draft beer/wine, we looked at the cocktail menu again based on recommendation. Had some type of special blueberry martini. It was very good. Wife had creamsicle. Good and strong. Nice bartender

We should have known when we cod get a reservation at the time we wanted when nothing else was available that something was going to be wrong! This was probably our fourth visit over the years and the service has always been slow. Tonight the service was slow and bad. First the server, Stephanie, came right to the table and... More

Katahdin has been around for many years in this foodie city. I used to frequent them when they were located on the corner of High and Spring Streets. That was way back when they were affordable and offered a nightly "blue plate special." Those days are gone. I cannot recall what year they relocated to their present digs, but I... More

Terrific meal tonight (2/20) for all four of us. Our server Matt was upbeat and entertaining from the beginning; the cocktails were delicious! The "side car" addition to our drinks was a happy surprise! Then the tomato soup...heavenly! The salad greens were delicious, too. Our entrees were the salmon, the grilled chicken, and the steak. All were excellent! The salmon... More

Pros: Setting is warm, nicely lit, and inviting with an interesting layout and an appealing bar. Servers were friendly, knowledgable, and had good timing. Excellent cocktail, good wine from an interesting, varied list. Great warm focaccia; excellent fries that were crisp on the outside, soft on the inside; burger was cooked to perfection. Cons: Crab fondue was so rich we... More

It was a great evening. We had a wonderfully patient server who recommended a great bottle of wine. The meals were very good all around. I found the prices to be a little high but not ridiculous The thing I loved the most.was the most was restaurant itself. There was a nice bar on the first floor and there were... More

After a 10 yr absence, and having visited their previous location, I found it to be a very welcomed familiar, yet new experience!

One of Portland's best is sadly now one of it's least consistent restaurants. Out of the past 5 or 6 visits over the past 4 years it's been sad to watch it's decline.

My husband and I made reservations for dinner after a late afternoon viewing of a play at the Portland Stage Company. We chose the restaurant for its convenience to the theater. Also, we had viewed the restaurant's web site. The restaurant has a nice ambiance and was playing nice jazz music when we arrived. The music did get too loud... More

One of Portlands classic restaurants in my opinion. I have come several times just for drinks but recently had the chance to dine. They have a limited menu that changes very often. I went for the salmon dish. It came with polenta that I could have second guessed to be mashed potatoes, seriously delicious! The salmon was blackened and was... More
