“Great service and food in wonderful relaxed atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

Amazing, amazing, amazing. Micah and the team provide spectacular service. The food is amazing as is wine service. If you're from a city like NY or San Fran, you will find the value astounding. Actually, if you're from anywhere, you'll find the value astounding. I was not crazy about our "carrot cake" dessert, which was more carrot than cake, but otherwise all was sheer perfection!

“Special from start to finish”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

We were staying in the Camden Harbour Inn for a long weekend so we had the good fortune to eat breakfast at Natalie's for three days, as well as to have their 5 course tasting menu one evening with the accompanying wine pairings. Every detail is managed with such care that you can feel the thoughtfulness behind all of it. For example, the breakfast each morning was started with a small shotglass smoothie of the day with a cup of diced fruit in rosewater simple syrup. A perfect amount to start the day off right. The smoked salmon with the bagel and creme fraiche was among the best I've ever had. As were the roasted mushrooms we had every day. For the dinner tasting menu, they offered everything from lobster bisque with a carrot panna cotta (yum) to a salmon dish with pasta and spring peas that literally tasted like springtime in your mouth. It was the best thing either my husband or I had eaten in months. The service was friendly and kind and the food was amazing. When you're looking for that special meal to really blow your socks off, this is the place.

Very expensive but worth it. They kept bringing little extra dishes between courses that made the whole experience very special.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2014

My wife and I stayed a night at Camden Harbor Inn (which does not seem to be reviewed here) with a dinner included in the deal. The inn itself is worth a stay, but this is about Natalie's.

Well, the dinner in Natalie's was truly fantastic. The notional 3 courses were added to with amuse bouche and palate freshers between courses.
The service was perfectly timed (important) and quietly enthusiastic especially for the wine selections to match courses.
The combination of flavors was very creative, and though each course was small, the sum total was perfect.
All in all one of the best and most enjoyable dinners ever.

Breakfast next morning was also in Natalie's. Again the service and food was just fantastic.
The overnight stay, dinner and breakfast was one of the highlights of our 4 weeks in North America.
