My appetizer had a minor issue and needed to be remade. Problem??? Not at all when the server responded so promptly. What came out, goat cheese fritters that were crispy and tasty. I followed that with the Lobster and Grits (perfectly balanced, creamy and rich...More

The red pepper gnocchi was absolutely delicious. The salmon salad app had overpowering mix of flavors (I like salmon, mustard, argula, pickled onions & capers - altogether in one dish was just too much.) Went on a storm evening so ate inside. Acoustics awful -...More

However, lobster and grits dish was too soupy and I only found one piece of sausage in it (it was more creamy last year). Gnocchi was a bit mushy. Fries and goat cheese fritters a must. Halibut was tasty, salads looked generous and good, but...More

We came across Coda when we learned that another restaurant in SW Harbor was closed on a kind of spring break. We arrived on its Taco Night and had a good meal, great beers, and a very accommodating server.
