This restaurant does almost everything well. Various dishes were imaginative and culinarily interesting. Our waitress, Huong was accomplished and friendly. Our only complaint was that the flourless chocolate cake was served too cold. Try the duck confit, and roasted garlic.

Friendly service, a lovely and relaxing dining area, but service was quite slow--they were so busy. It was about a 50 minute wait from clearing the apps to having dinner served. But, dinner was wonderful which is a huge plus when you've waited awhile!

This is a very nice restaurant amidst the tourist restaurants of Bar Harbor. Service is good and the food is very good. We thought it was slightly overpriced, but it was July in Bar Harbor. They had a nice wine list.

Full bar and nice wine selection. Really friendly service. We had pate, beet salad, pasta and lamb shank. Everything was well prepared and attractively presented. Blueberry crisp for dessert was definitely the right choice. Don't wait until the last minute to make a reservation.
