We were very surprised with this restaurant. We just moved to Gorham and are trying out the neighborhood restaurant. This one was hard to find as it is in the back of a B&B. Once inside, it was very cozy. The food was amazing. I highly recommend the Salmon. They have a great wine list. The Whitehall reserve cab was perfect. What really impressed us was the service. Our waiter kept checking with us often and provided suggestions and recommendations. We really enjoyed ourselves and will be back soon to try other items on their menu.
The food was fantastic, but I would caution going on a Friday night. The music was way to loud for such a small space. The same players could do some nice soft jazz instead of a hybrid irish / hee-haw square dance music that is way too loud for the space. Everyone around us could not talk because of music.
Always enjoy our visit to a local gem. Main course had a lot of flavor. Temperature could have been a little warmer. But overall, great.
A great experience!
We had the pleasure of eating here one evening during our stay at PineCrest Inn and boy, were we glad we did! Everything about this restaurant is special from the quaint atmosphere to the top-notch service and the outstanding food.
The decor of the small, intimate dining room has a friendly and inviting vibe that is matched by the attentiveness of the staff. Our server, Niko was witty and knowledgable and made us feel very much at home. The chef's passion and creativity came through in every detail with each course being a beautiful, expertly executed work of art - and delicious to boot!
If you're looking for an exceptional and unique dining experience, treat yourself to dinner at 91 South. Then take it a step further and stay overnight at the inn so you can experience their gracious hospitality and the scrumptious gourmet breakfast that is served every morning!
Definitely a hidden gem. All courses were excellent and the wine list was thoughtful and very reasonably priced. Intimate, quiet setting with frequent live music. I am looking forward to the next visit already. The entrance goes right through the kitchen, so be sure to thank the chef on your way out!
Honestly, we only made a reservation at 91 South because we were staying in the attached inn. To my surprise, it was the highlight of our visit to Portland! The food was beautifully balanced, fresh, and seasonal. My husband's steak piled with mushrooms and surrounded by a velvety sauce was perfect, and my seafood-stuffed cod had large pieces of scallops and shrimp in a flavorful sauce that was creamy without being heavy. They have live music most nights, and we had a lovely anniversary dinner with great food, a bottle of wine ($10 markup!), and a piano player who happily took requests. It's a small, intimate-feeling place, just right for a date night, and definitely worthy of a trip out from Portland.
The food was perfectly prepared and delicious. The service was extraordinary. And the live music (a pianist) created the right atmosphere for a romantic dinner with the one I love.
Definitely will return. Welcoming ,
the menu is limited but good, relaxing atmosphere.
We went hog wild w/ appetizers, entree, the awesome wine list, and even had dessert. Service was outstandingly. Chef even accommodated our request for some side dishes that weren't part of our entree selection. Couldn't ask for a more romantic or intimate dinner setting.
