The food was good (not great), but it didn't stay warm in their freezing cold restaurant. I don't like to write negative reviews, but this is meant to help them in this very competitive foodie town. When your heat isn't working and guests still come to eat, I recommend offering them a warm cup of coffee or something. Our server was defensive about the less than enjoyable experience that left us (and the entire dining room) zipped up in our Winter coats during the entire meal. She wasn't even nice in general. We would have spent more and stayed longer (we had a reservation to celebrate a birthday), but we were eager to get out and warm up. Luckily the little dive bar across the street was open and we were able to enjoy our birthday party there all night. Little Giant, you disappointed. Maybe we'll be back in the Summer.

One of best burgers in Portland. Cocktail list is incredible. Have not had any bad food from LG. Always have a changing menu with a few new items, and a special cocktail that supports a cause!

Excellent food and professional and top notch service. A warm and welcoming hostess greeted me for dinner last night and when I returned again for brunch this morning. I noticed the owner graciously observing all aspects of his operation. He didn’t miss a thing and was respectful with his staff when making suggestions.. This was the dining experience that I grew accustomed to in some of the best NYC restaurants during my 20 years there and we’re thrilled to have finally found a spot in Maine that offers the same level of expertise. Wonderful addition to the handful of establishments in Portland that are catered to tue foodies.
