Fore Street
Acclaimed farm-to-table restaurant
New American · $$$$
The scent of roasting meat, fish and game greets diners at this venerable Old Port American celebrated for its refined, seasonal farm-to-table dinners. Centered around an open wood-fire grill, oven and spit, the setting has a rustic warehouse feel, in keeping with the building's origins as a ship's armory. P.S. Reservations are advised, especially in summer, but there are a few walk-in tables.

Fore street was very highly recommended by family and friends. It was a process to get a reservation, which only heightened my anticipation and expectations of a great meal and even better service. During my reservation process I was assured that staff Could provide a child friendly meal for our adult handicapped son. Upon being seated, Our server informed me that this was impossible and that the chefs were too busy and worked too hard on the provided menu to make any concessions whatsoever. Probably should have left at that point but was with a large group. Food good but not great. My fish was over cooked, though the praline cake was delicious. Others at my table enjoyed the meal very much. Will not return and cannot recommend based on the rather shabby treatment.

One of the best culinary experiences in New England. Never disappointed. Even the garnish is the best thing you've ever tasted! Daily menu does not disappoint. Worth every penny.

Great dining experience. Tremendously delicous food. New menu all the time. Good service. Great cocktail menu too. Pricey but worth it. Bread was awesome. I ordered a flank steak - wonderful. Family-style, shared sides were awesome - had beets and potato. The mussels appetizer and oysters ob half shell were also fantastic.
