“Imaginative food in a homey surrounding”
Reviewed 24 November 2013 via mobile

Katie's is in a converted home with seating in rooms and on the porch. Dishes are imaginative--watermelon and tomato salad, delightful macaroons in a delicious chocolate dipping sauce, lobster ravioli--and attractively prepared. Service I'd generally good but unfortunately varies from excellent to dreadful depending on whether the owner is present.

“Great food and amazing staff”
Reviewed 10 November 2013

This restaurant was one of a kind. The lobster flowers were delicious as well as other items on the menu. The waitstaff and bartender were top-notch.

“Fine Dining in the fall of 2013”
Reviewed 27 October 2013

Pleasantly surprised to dine during a quiet week in Ogunquit. We were one of only two couples that evening. Both meals were excellent and as you can imagine we had full attention of the staff. We enjoyed it so much that we decided to dine there the next night. My wife had the "lobster flowers" that were a bit salty but that happens since we both watch our salt intake. Mentioned it to the waitress as an fyi and she was very willing to have the dish made over. I had the rack of lamb (4 ribs) done perfect and price was very reasonable at $24., that is a real deal compared to the other fine dining in the area. Décor was tasteful and relaxing/ romantic. Been to the other well established in the area and Katies is definitely on par with them.

“Delicious”
Reviewed 23 October 2013

We were there on a slow night but got the impression the service and attention would have been the same if the restaurant was full. Andy, the bartender, was knowledgeable about the specialty drinks and a pleasant conversationalist. Our waitress, Johanna, was friendly and patient when answering questions about menu items. My lobster flower was delicious. It was a newer item on the menu and should remain. We did not feel rushed and had the feeling they were happy to be serving us. Would not hesitate to dine there again.

Late in October, the crowds thin in Ogunquit and staffing is always a challenge, but we are glad that you were able to have such a nice, relaxing dinner. The Lobster Flower is one of my favorites among the new items on the fall menu, too!

“special dinner”
Reviewed 22 October 2013

We visited this restaurant after viewing a play at the Ogunquit Playhouse. The meal was superb, the staff outstanding and we will return when we visit the area again. I liked that the restaurant even uses local soap and lotion in the restrooms-Stonewall Kitchen items.

Thanks so much for writing! Many of our other guests also go to the wonderful productions at the Ogunquit Playhouse and Katie's is so close to the Playhouse without being on busy Route 1. We are proud to have Stonewall products in the restroom and we buy them from Spoiled Rotten, which stocks so many fine items!
