The room is bright and sunny for lunch. My friend had the Duck on pasta, and said it tasted reheated: not happy about meal. I had the Porchette on a baguette which was huge, and served with very good french fries. Sandwich combo was large but pork was dry; plenty of food.
We both had a glass of wine which was fairly priced.
No on site parking.

Hi Marcia,

Thank you for your review, and our sincere apologies that it sounds like you may have had a couple of issues during your time at 1652.

Whilst we absolutely would not have re-heated any dishes whatsoever (every item on our menu is made in house and to order), this does not excuse the fact that your experience did not meet the high standards we set for ourselves.

If you would like to email us at info@1652restaurant.com we would be happy to try and offer you a small incentive to give us another try, and hope we can make a better impression the second time around.

Regarding parking, there is a very large parking lot 50 yards across the street, which we feel is more than sufficient to serve our patron's needs during the non-peak season.

Many thanks for your feedback,
The 1652 Team

Unlike a lot of area restaurants the drink specials are "special".

Interesting and live up to the hype.

Food is great, I highly recommend the scallops and aranchini, swap the sauces if you get both, you will thank me.

Wait staff is stellar, very knowledgeable of the whole menu as well as the offerings available from the bar.

Super accommodating, will definitely be returning!

Thank Lee G

Went here recently for Sunday Brunch. Delicious. Had the frittata. It was a very large slice chock full of chicken and sausage. My wife had the chocolate waffle with ice cream. She was very pleased. Service was very good. Our server was attentive and very pleasant. The restaurant is bright and airy. A very pleasant experience.

Thanks for coming to enjoy Brunch at 1652, we have become very fond of our slightly different offerings at Brunch and we're really happy you were very pleased.
Now that we are into the Summer season, we have stopped serving Brunch until the season ends in Fall, but we are open from 11am-10/11pm, 7-days-a-week, serving many of the items you would have enjoyed at Brunch.
We look forward to welcoming you to 1652 again very soon, and thanks for taking time to leave a positive review, we appreciate it very much.

My wife and our two daughters love 1652. We where there when they opened and have been back many times since. Huw is always kind and working hard to ensure healthy s guests have a positive experience. The food is always fantastic. We love that they are introducing new and innovative cuisine to the town of York. Please be sure to go here any time you are in southern Maine, you won’t be disappointed. I’ll be back tonight for my third time in a week. Keep up the great work.
