Located in Portland's Old Port District, Fore Street opened in June, 1996. The interior surrounds a unique brick and soapstone hearth with a wood-burning oven, grill and turnspit; visible from most tables. We believe that good food travels the shortest possible distance between the farm and the table. Our menu changes every day and is founded upon the very best raw materials from a community of Maine farmers, fisherman, foragers and cheese makers. Most of the Maine foods are organically grown or harvested wild, each brought to us at the peak of its season. In 2002 and again in 2007, Fore Street was named by Gourmet Magazine as one of the Top Fifty Restaurants in the United States. In 2004, Chef-Partner Sam Hayward was named Best Chef: Northeast by the James Beard Foundation.

Reservations made on Open Table are for inside dining only. If you are looking to book seating on our tented patio please call the restaurant directly at 207-775-2717. Our patio is weather dependent and seasonal.

l We walked in on a rainy night and were lucky to get a good table facing the open kitchen. Our server (Greg) provided first class service all night. Good wine list and cocktails. My wife loved the...
