The restaurant is beautiful. The new owners have so improved the bar area with the little sparkling white lights and now the place is a lot more inviting. Re the food: you will not find a better tasting and more generous fish taco around! All the food we have had has been scrumptious. We have snacked here, had dinner, lunch and brunch. All are excellent, but the brunch is to die for! The servers are fantastic. The owners Rob and Aldo are warm and friendly. What is not to like?

Had a delicious dinner at the Roost. Most of the menu can be ordered gluten free.
Was served a gluten free muffin when others were given bread. Warm and tasty.
Appetizer of Gluten free vegetable tempura was so large we both enjoyed.
GF fish and sweet potato chips were great. Non GF diner was also good. Next time want try the amazing breakfast or lunch menu.

My friends and I were in Ogunquit for the 4th of July weekend, and were looking for a light dinner. We were originally seated in the dining area, but didn't realize that the "Light Fare" menu was not served in there. The dining room was beautiful and the menu looked great for a nice dinner out, but not to grab casual food.

We moved to the bar and ordered the lamb burger, shrimp, and prosciutto flatbread to share. The lamb burger was delicious, and the blueberry jalapeño ketchup was delicious. Service was great, and the bar had plenty of space so that you didn't feel squished even though all the seats were full. The indoor lights added a great ambiance to the bar. Prices were reasonable for the quality of the food. I would recommend Roost for either a light dinner at the bar or a nicer dinner in the dining room, and would definitely go back if we return to Ogunquit.

We walked in almost at the end of their lunch service (2:45) They couldn't have been nicer. Lunch was really good. We will go again. I'd like to try dinner.

Made reservations for party of 6 only had room at 6:00- glad we were able to get in. My favorite meal while in town here for the week. Black bean soup is crazy good! Service is top notch, not just teenagers with summer jobs. Our whole family enjoyed it even our high maintenance family lol. If you like creative food, good wine selection, plenty of parking you will love this place. It's not for the Barnacles Billy crowd per we, although I had to get some fried scallops there. Enjoy!
