North 43 held our rehearsal dinner the Sunday of Memorial Day Weekend. Stephane and her crew were outstanding, especially given that just prior to our arrival they experienced a major power outage. Without missing a beat, a minor change in the menu, cooking outside on grills, the dinner and service were truly outstanding. This has always been our favorite restaurant, excellent service food and atmosphere. Our guests keep raving about the atmosphere, service and food.

We had a rather last-minute opportunity to gather family over Memorial Day weekend and struggled to find a Portland venue that could accommodate a party of 18. North 43 Bistro was not only able to seat our group with only several days' notice, but gave us the most fabulous experience. Our server, Kristen, handled our table with ease even when we inadvertently threw curveballs like shifting our seats after we ordered, requesting substitutions, or a generous relative asking to group several checks together to pay for the cousins. Her service was efficient, enthusiastic, and friendly, and she really made our evening perfect. She was sincerely one of the best servers I've ever encountered. I think between us we tried all the entrees, most of the appetizers, and most of the specialty drinks, all of which were delicious. The ambiance was lovely, the view was spectacular, and we'll definitely be back...hopefully on a night Kristen is there to serve us! Thanks for a great evening!

We came here for date night and everything was superb. We have been to many of Portland's fine eateries and these guys can hang with the best. Wonderful waterfront views, delightful dishes, welcoming staff. Courtney was our server and she was a rockstar. Provided insightful commentary, was prompt but not intrusive, bubbly, and thoughtful. I had an off menu drink request and she got it spot on. Highly reccommend.

This is a gem of a restaurant in South Portland, Maine. Terrific cocktail offerings and service. The food was prepared perfectly and was tastefully garnished. We look forward to returning in the warmer weather to enjoy their scenic deck.

What a beautiful location! Food was beautifully presented and tasted wonderful. The chef/owner helped make my best friends wedding a night to remember! They have a great upstairs area for private events.
