Venerable bistro on Monument Square. Arrived at 11:30, lunch-time opening. Very clean, including bathrooms. Menu very innovative. Difficult to make a choice. My Gulf of Maine haddock with fresh peeky toe crab was outstanding. Very, very fresh and flavorful. Served with basil chimichurri, sweet corn kernels, spinach, and garlic mashed potatoes. Yum, yum, yum. Starter soup of roasted pepper and tomato also very tasty with excellent thick texture and stimulating mouth feel. Service very good. Prices very reasonable for quality delivered. Only negative is dated interior - looks like it has not been refreshed for a while. It can be dark when sitting away from front windows. Worth a visit. I will be back.

Ee went for dinner and got a table inside. I appreciated the furniture, but tables in the rear van be bery noisy die to the close kitchen and unexperienced personnel. We orfeted two pizzas, one grilled mix and one salmon. All food wad reivented, fsh successfully, pizzas disappointingly.

Walked in off the street to find what turned out to be quite good and great service. I definitely recommend for someone looking for really good but not too pretentious.

We were in Portland for only one night, and after a bit of research, we found David's. We could not have been happier. I had the fish specialty, but over vegetables, instead of potatoes, and my spouse enjoyed a great piece of salmon. We would have lied to sit outside, but all of the tables had been pre-reserved. The restaurant is located on the Memorial Square, not too much traffic, and off track from most tourists. Lots of locals were there.

Excellent dinner, not inexpensive but none of the fine dining places in Portland are. Portions were adequate and the service was excellent.
