We recently were in Portland overnight and stopped in for dinner at the Blue Spoon. It was 24 hours after the seacoast got battered by a huge winter storm... and as a result not only was it an adventure to walk up Munjoy Hill, but...More

In this foodie town, with so many restaurants to choose from, The Blue Spoon is at the top of my list. The atmosphere is cozy and romantic. The service is friendly and the food never disappoints. My goal is to eventually live close enough to...More

I only visited that one time and we had a male server whose name was not Bri. Regardless, the place was really great and our visit could not have been better.
