“Lobster and Wine, Everything's Fine”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

Had dinner at Natalie's and I ordered the lobster tasting menu while my husband had the 7 course saisonnier menu. We both had the wine pairings with our meal. What a meal! The lobster tasting consisted of a lobster salad, lobster roll asian style, lobster bisque and grilled lobster with a dessert of your choice. Yes, the waiter does bring your meal and describe the dish, however, I personally liked that. I want to know the ingredients and I like to savor each taste. However, having been here, I know that you can turn that off if you ask. Micah had wonderful wine pairings with each dish. Loving wine, he was a terrific source of information on the wines and the glassware. This was just an amazing meal and we have decided to return. It was a bit chilly so we sat inside at the table closest to the front window with terrific views. This restaurant and it's staff aim to please and go out of their way to make your meal enjoyable.

“Best Wine Pairing Ever”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

If you enjoy a fine dining experience with a range of delicious, interesting (and not TOO exotic) plates you should definitely try Natalie's. I had the Menu Saisonnier and my wife chose the al la carte menu. We both enjoyed the wine pairing menu. It was simply delicious and I have never had a more perfect dining with wine pairing experience. It was a pretty dismal rainy day in Maine and warmth of the reception and service more than made up for the dreary day. A must do if you are traveling in the area.

“Great service and food in wonderful relaxed atmosphere”
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”
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.
