Your restaurant is so pleasant and comfortable. It’s homey yet with just the right ambience and amount of elegance. It’s a joy eating at The Roost August 20, 2014
Celebrating our 50th Anniversary for 5 days in Ogunquit, Maine, we discovered Roost Cafe and Bistro virtually across the street from where we were staying. We launched our week’s festivities with a 9 person brunch at Roost: great food and terrific staff. We enjoyed our time so much that we, our sons, and their families, returned to Roost several times during our stay. One particularly exceptional experience involves the wait staff: We had joyous interaction with our own table waiters (reliable, organized, warm, and especially good with our little grandsons) AND with other waiters in our vicinity, one of whom — I imagine he is Italian or Brazilian or Spanish or a French fusion of them all! — has what has to be among the brightest, most captivating smiles I have ever seen… smiles my family and I were blessed by even as he passed by us as he headed to the kitchen or to other tables. (We thought of asking his name, to thank him directly…and then became too shy.) A place to which we will eagerly return in coming years!

Good morning! Dinner last night was exactly what I had hoped it would be. The room was perfect for our family, the food was fantastic, and the service was excellent. Everyone raved about the whole experience!
Thank you so much for making the night very special! Have a safe trip and enjoy your family!

“Excellent Cuban bean soup. Generous portions, well prepared and plated. We went for dinner and will definitely return for brunch or lunch. Surprisingly upscale menu. Nice, small bar.” Dined on 10/16/2010 Special Features: fit for foodies, neighborhood gem.

“We have been going to Ogunquit Playhouse for years and always eat dinner ahead of time. THIS was the best meal we’ve had in Southern Maine! The waiter was extremely attentive and just-right friendly. The food was divine. There were 5 of us and everyone, even our extremely picky eater friend was happy both during and after the meal! We will be back again and again, and we’re not waiting for the next Ogunquit Playhouse play (and it’s an hour drive for us to get to Ogunquit!)” Dined on 10/09/2010 Special Features: fit for foodies, great for brunch, neighborhood gem, romantic, special occasion, great for lunch.
