We stopped there when our first choice in Belfast had a 40 minute wait. Given the name, I would not be attracted, (which I later discovered was the name of the building). The restaurant then turned out to be vegetarian, which I am not. almond gazpacho and mezzo, my hubby - my plate, seared radicchio were tasty and satisfying. Truly... More

The Gothic has exceptional cocktails. Interesting combinations, nice & strong. I've tried several different kinds, and all were good. The service has always been very good. The decor and design inside and out is excellent. The food is highly creative & visually stunning, though the portions tend to be small and the choices somewhat limited as well as pricey. I... More

The Gothic is located in a beautiful old historic corner building right in the middle of the little lovely seaside village of Belfast, Maine. It has big windows that flood the space with light and a beautiful small bar and lovely staff. The food is all vegetarian, artistically prepared and plated beautifully on small plates. The specialty cocktails are creative... More

Had dinner at The Gothic last night and was greeted by lovely hostess/waitress. She proceeded to describe the menu items in detail, all of which sounded delicious. We thoroughly enjoyed our selections. We would certainly recommend it . Bunny and Andy

Five of us went to Sunday brunch at The Gothic. Only one in the party is a vegetarian. Everyone was pleased with their meal, enjoyed the ambience and felt well served. The appetizers, salads and entrees were all well prepared and flavorful. The drinks were exceptional . We will definitely return to savor dinner and will likely bring guests to... More

Loved Belfast, loved the food at the Gothic, loved the old building the Gothic is in. The service at the Gothic was just weird: didn't get the orders correct, kept bringing the wrong drinks, and were very slow in bringing meals. However, this was one of my favorite dining experiences in a long time The food (vegetarian and local) was... More

I've eaten here twice -- once last year when it was fabulous and again, last week when it wasn't. The restaurant has gone vegeterian in the interim, which is fine. The food itself was quite good. However, the portion size of my main dish wouldn't have filled up a 3-year old. I had the pasta with artichokes and mushrooms. Unfortunately,... More

We were going to go to Delvino's, but it was way too loud for my dad, so we went looking for another dinner option. We had walked by the Gothic earlier and my dad stated he wanted to be adventurous and try it. I have to admit I was the hesitant on in the group…I like veggies, but wasn't sure... More

Wandered into the restaurant on a Friday night without a reservation and they welcomed us warmly and sat us in a prime window seat. The whole experience was great: a gorgeous setting, a waiter who really knew the menu and shared with pride that some of the veggies came from his own garden, and an impressive drink menu, including a...
