This is a lovely intimate restaurant with a small diversified/unique menu with wonderful dishes made with the freshest ingredients and a delicious mouth watering experience. The service is excellent, the owner is the chef and his wife runs the front and of the restaurant. She comes to the tables to say hello and also helps the serving staff. I would... More

We loved this restaurant. The menu had many different creative options from different cultures. We loved the appetizer that included the fresh pita and hummus. The pita was out of this world good. Baked fresh and so delicious. Our eleven year old son loved the lamb. The lobster ravioli was an interesting preparation. A little too sweet for me to... More

Fresh is another one of my favorite places in Camden. As a local, it is easy to tire of places, but Fresh and Co always treats me to delicious, high quality food, a unique menu and a delicious array of flavors. I always feel I have been transported to another place beyond a standard seafood or fish dish. I love... More

Creatively prepared, often locally sourced,excellent meals. We have eaten here 4 or 5 times and the seafood and meat is consistently well prepared. Service is very good and desserts, like the flowerless chocolate cake, are outstanding. The interior is very cozy and nicely decorated. The prices are reasonable for a restaurant of this quality. Although I have indicated mid range... More

This was our favorite restaurant in Camden. It was packed every night and that is not surprising. We were very inspired by the food. Innovative combinations and great spices. All the waitresses were simply wonderful.

Great dinner with our son. Started with a shared appetizer and ended with a flourless chocolate cake. All the entrees were excellent but the lobster ravioli was out of this world. Great service and fun being able to see into the open kitchen! I'd love to go back when we're in the area.

This is the second time that we've dined at Fresh, and it remains top notch. Our food and drink were both excellent and the service was terrific. Fresh is clearly one of the best restaurants in the Camden area.

After a week of dining in Camden, I agree that Fresh is numero uno. It has the most imaginative menu by far. Although only 7 dishes are offered on the "Mains" list they represent an intriguing mix of international influences with local Maine standards: Black Sea Moussaka with a superb lamb ragu, Chicken Rohan Josh, Brazilian Fish Stew, Maine Lobster...

Wow. Right from the time we called in for a reservation to the time we left, we were impressed with Fresh. It's unique offerings, friendly service and simple elegance provides an intimate or more open if preferred, dining experience. Highly recommend Fresh as one the best dining spots in the area! Our server Ania, was terrific too. Our voicemail request... More

Description
A relative newcomer to Camden's waterfront dining scene, Fresh serves innovative interpretations of classic coastal New England dishes inspired by the rich culinary traditions of the Mediterranean region. Self-described as one part neighborhood cafe, one part elegant bistro & bar, Fresh is designed around an open kitchen, where Head Chef Steve Steeves, and his Sous Chef Kyle Ruger, can be seen busily toiling over open flames preparing mouth watering and deeply satisfying dishes.Fresh works with local farmers, growers and purveyors to source products with integrity, flavor and soul, and incorporate seasonal offerings into their menus nightly. The result is food that is honest, straightforward and pays homage to the bounty of the local region of Maine we are so privileged to call home. Using ingredients in their peak and preparing them minimally and with respect allows Fresh to capture the essence of the season and bring it straight to your table.The Fresh experience is about more that just the food. A sincere effort to educate our staff on all aspects of food and wine culture is the basis for our service philosophy. The welcoming staff at Fresh goes to great lengths to make diners feel at ease, comfortable and well taken care of. Warm hues, soft lighting and an unexpected quirkiness encourage guests to settle in, get comfortable, and have a great time.
