“Fabulous food,”
Reviewed 12 October 2013

Restaurant was next to the grand hotel where we were staying. Tried it the first night, and loved it so much we ate the the next. Great, innovative food (special ribs to die for), good service, excellent wine, and pleasant surroundings which felt intimate because the rooms were divided up into smaller elements by screens. Lovely vegetables. Wish I could have managed a desert!

“Nothing Special”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

Atmosphere OK, nothing special. We ordered the fish and chips and what came was unappetizing (pre frozen???) sweet potato fries and an excessive portion of fish which we could not finish. No coleslaw or tartare sauce. This was not an inexpensive meal and based on this one experience we wouldn't hurry back.

“excellent glad we found them”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

we go every time we are up in Maine. This time we had a bit of a scare as they were not on route one any longer. I called information with my cell to find out they had relocated to Shore Rd. in Ogunquit. Whew what a relief and a long well deserved time coming. Just what we thought it would be had they decided to expand from their smaller tiny bistro. It is charming and much more accommodating. The food goes without mention. We ate breakfast and dinner there. Might we recommend their glazed swordfish dish. However any choice would not disappoint. can't wait to go back. Wish we didn't live so darn far away.

“Avoid the bar!!”
Reviewed 1 October 2013

Stopped in recently to see if there were any changes to décor etc since taking over from Provence. We chose to sit at the bar rather than the dining room. I noticed after leaving that Roost charges $2.00 more for the same drink, the same way, than nearby places on Shore Road. That is a rip off. Needless to say, I will drive by on my way to better places. PS: the flatbread lays heavy on the stomach. Won't be back!!
