My family had dinner at Valentina on our way up to Acadia. From the moment we walked in the doors the owner and staff made us feel like we were old friends. The menu choices were perfect for a family of foodies. Michael, the owner greets his guests and also spends time with each table during the course of dinner. It is obvious why Valentina is # 1 on tripadvisor with only being open for 7 weeks..... Impeccable service, quality food, attention to detail. We will definitely be back next year!

We are regular Camden visitors, with family here. This new restaurant is a good addition and in the two weeks we have been here it has been the best restaurant so far. We had felt that the restaurants had gone backwards and that the quality of the food and service was largely not worth the premium prices charged, Valentina's was a pleasant surprise. The food was very all very good and fresh. There was a good variety on the menu without being too extensive. All 3 of us enjoyed it. Deserts were quite limited, only two options, although that was fine with us. The service was that much better than other restaurants, with genuine interest in whether we were happy or not without being over the top. It used to be a good pizza restaurant for many years and failed as a restaurant soon after. This model works, The atmosphere is still a little basic, but not overly, We just hope that it keeps it's mojo and is as good next year. Well done.

My husband and I had dinner at Valentina Coastal Maine Kitchen and we were warmly greeted by the owner, Michael. Our waitress was attentive and friendly, graciously answering our questions about the menu choices. We shared a summer salad, which had a wonderful dressing of olive oil and white balsamic vinegar infused with lemon. Since we were celebrating my birthday, we had a glass of sparkling wine from Spain. We decided on entrees rather than small plates. My husband had the Steak Frites which was cooked to perfection and extremely tender. I had the Tagliatelle with Lobster, and it was outstanding as well. For dessert, we shared a flour less chocolate cake with blueberry sauce and whipped cream. After dinner, Michael came over to thank us and to ask how we enjoyed the meal. We told him we hoped that he will decide to stay open year round, as we have a house right here in Camden and plan to return to Valentina in the off season. Trip advisor ratings did not disappoint us with the glowing reviews for this restaurant!

A new addition to Camden, this charming little restaurant on Washington Street has quickly become recognized as among the best in the Midcoast. Michael, the owner, warmly greets all who arrive and his wait staff are superb in their attention to your party. The menu offers wide variety, but I would especially recommend the braised short ribs which in preparation, presentation and taste rank among the best meals I have enjoyed in recent memory. Don't miss Valentina if you travel to Camden.
