Very, very limited menu. The food was less than good and the wine was seriously over priced. The bill almost stopped my heart. My worst experience in Kennebunk Maine for dinner.

Our meal, menu and check were almost impossible to see with the extremely dim lighting. Had to use our IPhone flashlights to see the menu and read the bill. Also really had a tough time seeing what we were eating when our orders arrived. We're all for ambiance, but this place took it to the extreme. It was one notch above eating in the dark. Our meals were quite good, though we had to send the roast chicken back (meat was too tough and the side of whipped potatoes was cold), but the crabcakes that came in exchange were much better, as was the grilled pork entree. Crank up the lighting a bit and we'll return, but we won't try eating in the dark again.

The food is all fresh and , all local. I eat here all the time and love it. The drinks are a bit trendy, but the salads make life worth living.

This restaurant offers a chance to be treated well with well-prepared inventive dishes. We had the kind of service that is rare. The waiter seemed like he is interested in the well-being of the people that he served. He was not only an excellent waiter, he went out of his way to make my night special. It was an Anniversary dinner. He added a special surprise in the presentation of the dessert. This dessert was superb. It was a selection of gelato and sorbet. He also brought out a root beer float made with local ingredients. The sorbet with presented with a little candle!

The food was fresh, delicious and inventive. We started out with peach sangria that was delicious and shared the little neck clams for an appetizer. I had the strip steak for the main course. My husband had a lobster pasta dish.

I would highly recommend this restaurant. There are dishes made for vegans and folks who are gluten-free. Make reservations for sure.
