Our group of six visited for dinner before Christmas. We all felt that the food was good, but average. People in my group had artichoke hearts, pork belly, pizza and pasta. I would probably not go back because there are other good choices in Camden.

40 paper offers a nice aside from the standard ‘Maine fare’ of fried seafood and lobster rolls. Creative, locally sourced and delicious! Excellent service, thoughtful wine and beer selections and eclectic atmosphere all make 40 paper a great spot to visit in Camden.

We had been here two years ago, it was a pleasant experience then but not so much this time round. We must have caught, Wind, the bartender on a bad day. Boy was he dry and non-communicative, gruff monosyllables at best. On our last visit...More

Service was top notch ...Attentive and accommodating.. Appetizers and entrees were very good, but portions could be a bit bigger even if they raise the prices.

The cocktails were good but the service wasn't. The bartender the tattoos on his arms and hands were extremely rude to my friends and I. I am a server myself and felt like not leaving a tip.

We were a group of six who visited at a very busy time. We were given a table with bar stools and had a great dinner with fantastic flatbread starters (the beet and goat's cheese is brilliant) and super fresh calamari. The staff are well-trained...More

I want to commend the chef. The food that we tasted was GREAT . The bartender or what ever he thinks he is ? needs a vacation . Seriously.. we travel. This person probably should ponder another industry .

We stayed in Camden 3 nights, and had dinner here all 3 nights. The cocktails, pasta and dessert were all first-class; and we loved the relaxed atmosphere. It's not on the waterfront and it's not seafood, so may not be your thing, but if you...More

Trendy atmosphere. 20 to 30s something crowd, kind of a 'locals' vibe. Contemporary modern decor, bright acoustics, full bar with friendly, knowledgeable mixologists.

Located in the century-old Knox Mill, our bistro is situated on top of the Megunticook River, just between the two waterfalls. At Brevetto, our modern Italian bistro cuisine is designed to pair perfectly with our extensive– and almost exclusively Italian– wine list. Brevetto is Italian for “patent,” and throughout the restaurant you will find turn-of-the-century schematics of wine presses and odd, out-dated food machines. In stark contrast to the complicated workings of a “salami washing machine,” our menu is simple and straightforward. We feature a large menu with a range of grilled pizzas, Italian pastas, and a variety of entrées. In addition to our extensive wine list, we also have a full bar with artisan draft beers and liquors. Enjoy your dinner in our inviting dining room, or on our waterfront deck. Relax with an obscure Italian red wine at our bar, or an extra-dry gin martini on the leather sofa. Brevetto has some of the best of both worlds, right in downtown Camden.
