It wasa foggy night, so no need to climb to the 3rd floor deck.
We sat on the second floor. It was a little warm and humid but not bad. Our waitress was a treat and our food was very good. i had the stuffed lobster tail. It was delicous. My husband had the scallops risotto. The flavors were a little unbalanced, the sweet versus the barbeque sauce but overall very tasty. Would return and try other things.

My senior mom and wife and I had a wonderful dinner of clam chowder, seafood stew and perfectly prepared sides of spinach and brussel sprouts. The service was superb too.

We arrived at 2:15 pm and climbed the stairs to the 3rd floor requesting one of the 2 available tables. We were offered a seat at the bar with our back to the view and told those tables were set aside for 3-4 people. There was no one waiting, no one coming up behind us. They were not reserved. So I hope those tables were empty until dinner. We went elsewhere!

This restaurant is one of our favorite go to's in Boothbay Harbor. Besides the top deck seating overlooking the harbor, the service is great.
Tonight, I had the scrumptious "seafood stew" which has haddock, shrimp, scallops and lobster in a light tomato broth perfectly seasoned to highlight the flavors of the seafood. The portions in this meal are better than average and so delicious! My husband had the salmon which was also a good size portion. The veggies included bokchoy and seasoned seaweed. He did not like the veggies but I thought they were delicious ( more a matter of taste here than preparation).
Their tapas choices are good and well prepared but portions are smaller than what a man might choose ( unless you get many choices). I have to give this the highest rating possible due to the all round quality of the experience.
Worth the trip!

We've had some very hit and miss meals in Boothbay Harbor, and decided to try the tapas at the Bistro. We started with excellent drinks - a Hendricks gin Cosmo and a flavorful home-make blueberry pomegranate sangria. After consulting with the server, we ordered a number of dishes. To our surprise, they all came out of the kitchen at once! In fact, we barely had room to fit them and our drinks on the table. Please, just not very well executed, and the reason why I can't give the restaurant 5 stars. Although some dishes were a bit disappointing, nevertheless, the food was generally very well done. (The lobster crepes were sold by our server as "award-winning." They were tasty, but the cream cheese and other flavor completely overwhelmed the lobster). Well worth another visit, and perhaps on a night when the third floor is more calm and warmer.
