The prior reviewer has obviously not a clue with regard to what a tasting menu is. My husband and I went to Hugo's last night and had a wonderful, albeit expensive, visit and had the tasting menu of the evening. Yes, we had the four buttermilk biscuits (half-dollar sized), and then an additional two were brought over (which we ate), and then two more (which we could not finish because we were getting full between those and the tasting portions). The wait staff was more than willing to keep bringing them over so I'm not sure why the prior reviewer found the biscuit concept so offensive...the restaurant just doesn't want them to go to waste. This ain't Olive Garden, pal. \r \r We had 6 tasting courses, Yes, they are small. Hence the name, ""taste"" (duh), paired w/ wine. Of note were the Scottish Salmon with a Blanquette de Limoux, St. Hilaire, NV, Languedoc, France; Casco Bay Cod with an Auratus, Quinta do Feital, 2008, Minho, Portugal; and 2 year age, Shelburne Cheddar, Vermont with a Cotes de Gascogne, Dom La Hitaire, 2006, South West, France (truly amazing!!!!!!) The server was always available to us and extremely knowledgeable about the evening's pairings. The atmosphere, unlike the utter cacophony of sound at Fore Street, was intimate and relaxing. \r \r Unlike the prior reviewer, my husband and I have no experience talking with an Alice Waters, or blahbity blah blah, but we know good gourmet food when we have it. And like the manager, I am curious as to what the prior reviewer wanted from Hugo's, or is he or she just a pompous poser who would complain about any experience where he or she felt the portions weren't big enough? If you want big portions, go to Bonanza. If you want tapas, go to Local 188. If you want a tasting menu, go to Hugo's or Cinque Terre. \r \r On the down side, expect to spend about $200 for two people. It is pricey, but overall a very pleasant dining experience.
3.Portland Lobster Co
180 Commercial St0.42 mi Portland, ME$$ Seafood RestaurantsRestaurants
Having lived in Portland for years, this past summer I finally went to the Portland Lobster Company. Like many locals, I finally discovered this gem on the water in the Old Port. It has fresh seafood from lobster rolls to fried clams and great music on their outdoor deck to go along with several local beers. Having been to about everywhere in the Old Port now, I would put this place at the top of my list. Can't believe I never found this place before!

I know it's used to often but.... OMG. The lobster stew was to die for. And the lazy lobster dinner we split with the lobster papadelle special was delicious. Worth the price. But then again it is lobster.

We are addicted to eating here. No matter what the price is, the food is exceptional. We make it a point to eat here at least once a week, and we tell everyone about the amazing pizza.

Street & Co. has just raised my expectations of going out for a nice dinner. A quaint little location down in the Old Port, friendly and fun staff, open kitchen concept(always a plus) and the food was outstanding. We started with an appetizer of calamari which was terrific, the tomato sauce it was in complimented the calamari very well. Then we shared a tomato/fresh mozzarella salad and a baby spinach salad both very well done, fresh ingredients, great flavor combinations. My husband had the blackened Tuna which was absolutely fantastic, it actually came blackened unlike some restaurants which will call a rub blackened! I'm not a huge seafood person but I ordered their clams on linguine and white sauce, OMG it was to die for. The mix of flavors was better with every bite after the next. And I highly recommend saving room for the dessert! My husband ordered the Flan, and said it was as good as my mothers Puertorrican Flan, almost better! And I had their chocolate concoction for the evening, chocolate lovers beware, it was fantastic. A successful 7th yr anniversary dinner for us!

BBG's steak was fork tender, juicy and some of the best I've had. I found their desserts disappointing for portion vs price. My apple dessert was the size of a quarter for $8.50. Way overpriced. Staff were very attentive with excellent service.
Seems like we hit a network glitch.
