About Us

From our raw bar, we offer a rotating assortment of Maine oysters, with six selections at any given time — along with live scallops, prawns, clams, crudos, caviar and more. Our full menu features the finest seafood, produce, and meats from local fishermen and farmers while reflecting the seasons.

Our wine list focuses on natural wines specifically chosen to pair best with our dinner menu; from our bar comes seasonally inspired spins on classic cocktails and craft beers.

Our airy dining room is warmed by its dark walnut furniture, textural lines, and subtle curves. Our congenial dining counter is conducive to a full meal and conversation. And our private dining room offers a separate space for an intimate event. The seasonal patio overlooks Portland’s working waterfront and the quintessential Narrow Gauge Train.

Happy Hour: Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday 4:30PM – 6:00PM.
