I want to commend the chef. The food that we tasted was GREAT . The bartender or what ever he thinks he is ? needs a vacation . Seriously.. we travel. This person probably should ponder another industry .

We stayed in Camden 3 nights, and had dinner here all 3 nights. The cocktails, pasta and dessert were all first-class; and we loved the relaxed atmosphere. It's not on the waterfront and it's not seafood, so may not be your thing, but if you...More

Trendy atmosphere. 20 to 30s something crowd, kind of a 'locals' vibe. Contemporary modern decor, bright acoustics, full bar with friendly, knowledgeable mixologists.

We had a fabulous wedding reception at 40 Paper in August. The entire wedding party, friends, and family went home feeling elated, not only because of the wedding, but because the food was so delicious. It put a smile on everybody's face. We loved the...More

We enjoyed five different small plate dishes during happy hour pricing and loved each of them! Authentic Italian dishes at a fantastic price between 4-6 pm. Glasses of wine were deeply discounted also. Highly recommend 40 Paper for dinner.

So glad we went here on our our last night in town. The restaurant has a cool vibe, and the servers were so helpful and friendly. The flatbreads are fantastic, and their specialty drinks are not to be missed! Our entire family had a very...More

The food is excellent and the cocktail/wine list is well curated. The service is very good. Note that the menu is more of a farm-to-table style, which means not huge, and some seasonal ingredients are repetitive (lots of kale, lots of fennel, lots of arugula...).

We dined here on a Saturday evening and were able to get 6 pm reservations late in the day. We enjoyed drinks and appetizers outside during happy hour, then moved inside for our dinner. One of us had the lamb chops which were excellent, though...More

Located in the century-old Knox Mill, our bistro is situated on top of the Megunticook River, just between the two waterfalls. At Brevetto, our modern Italian bistro cuisine is designed to pair perfectly with our extensive– and almost exclusively Italian– wine list. Brevetto is Italian for “patent,” and throughout the restaurant you will find turn-of-the-century schematics of wine presses and odd, out-dated food machines. In stark contrast to the complicated workings of a “salami washing machine,” our menu is simple and straightforward. We feature a large menu with a range of grilled pizzas, Italian pastas, and a variety of entrées. In addition to our extensive wine list, we also have a full bar with artisan draft beers and liquors. Enjoy your dinner in our inviting dining room, or on our waterfront deck. Relax with an obscure Italian red wine at our bar, or an extra-dry gin martini on the leather sofa. Brevetto has some of the best of both worlds, right in downtown Camden.
