My wife and I always eat at Fore Street for dinner when in Portland at least once. We enjoyed the foie gras and the chicken liver appetizers and the monkfish and Arctic Char as entrees. All ere amazing! The wine list is extensive and save time for a cocktail at the bar/lounge!

The food was very good (a little disapointed the $40 scallop dinner only served 3 scallops but they were excellent) and the atmosphere was great. The server was not the best-she was trying to move our table we think (even though there was not a line and it was later on a sunday night reservation). She served the dessert and the bill together and did not want to refill our coffees. Also never said what was on the the chacuterie tray...We eat out alot and were so excited to try Fore St after all we had heard all the reviews but the server tempered our review. We will try again but there are so many food options in Portland ~ so many to try.

I have reviewed Fore Street before but it is worth another review. We have eaten in some very good restaurants including Del Posto in NYC and the Cayotte Cafe in Sante Fe but we think Fore Street has them beat. We arrived early for our recent reservation and were seated early. The exposed brick and beam interior is beautiful, comfortable and warm. Our server was friendly, attentive and helpful. The food.... It is fantastic. I had the seafood sampler platter which included scallops, smoked muscles and halibut. The flank steak was cooked perfectly and my wife had lamb which was the best lamb either of us had ever had. Even the cocktails are well balanced and creative. It is a little expensive but you get your money's worth. If you like good food this place never fails - we eat here ever time we come to Portland.

We went right when they opened and were able to reserve a walk in table for the evening. Everything we got was delicious! Had a fettuccine appetizer and fish for the main, both delicious! Also got chocolates to go for dessert and the caramels were to die for! Would definitely recommend this!

We tried to make a reservation here the day of, but were told they were booked. However they said after 9 PM they accept walk-ins. So we arrive around that time and in about 15 minutes we were seated.

The service was prompt, efficient and friendly. The food was very good, and we enjoyed the atmosphere. I did think the prices were just a little high for what you received.
