I'm not one to write reviews but really felt compelled to because I hemmed and hawed for weeks over which Portland restaurant to choose......I'm not a "foodie" but after reading reviews and talking with Portland friends, we decided to try Fore Street. We did not have a reservation - mid November - but they gave us one that day - for 9:30 that night. Not a problem for us. The service was great - the atmosphere was great, but it was VERY loud - my disappointed was in the menu. If you are a food lover of menu items other than your basic fish, chicken or steak, then this is your place! The food was really good - but - I had Hanger Steak because it was really the only entree on the menu that I wanted... Personally the food items were too gourmet for me....The menu changes daily, but I'm not into duck and other weird things they offered. The next day we went to the Grill Room on Exchange St. ... now THAT was amazing!!! One of the best meals I've had! (I had swordfish, my husband had scallops) Outstanding service, quality, atmosphere! Prices were similar to Fore Street but we had a much better time and lots more fun at the Grill Room. I would recommend the Grill Room anyday over Fore Street.
