There’s something special about Sur Lie.

Sur Lie is a tapas style restaurant in downtown Portland, Maine serving American contemporary cuisine of an eclectic mix of influences from all over the world. Sur Lie uses tapas as a way to bring people together and create a unique dining experience. The food focus is on the amazing and beautiful bounty of locally sourced ingredients that Maine has to offer.

To us it’s about buying local. It’s about giving back to our community. Food and drink are a craft, something we take pride in. It’s more than sitting down to eat dinner. You get more than food and a couple drinks – you get an experience. To us, it is about giving each guest an amazing experience.

Happy Hour all day Wednesday, and 5-6pm Thursday-Saturday. Only available in the Bar/Lounge.

So so so so good!! We went with friends and it was our first time here and it's now all of our favorite restaurant. The menu is incredible! Everything is so savory and decadent. Between the 4 of us we enjoyed the short ribs, lobster popover, shrimp, crab dip, local catch, fromage and smoked butternut squash. This is tapas dining so getting 2-3 items per person is the way to go! The food comes out as it is ready. We were there for about an hour and a half. If our stomachs weren't so full and satisfied we would have had a hard time leaving. Keep a menu with you at the table and you can easily take your time here and indulge for a lengthy dining experience.The cocktails are artistic and delicious, the venue is cool and not loud or chaotic. The service is smooth, steadily paced, and friendly.The booth seating by the streetside windows is such a pleasantry. We can't wait to go back with more friends so we can share these specialties and have incredible dining memories together.(My photos don't do it justice. A few times we started eating before I thought to take pictures.)

Food was incredible. We did the tasting menu and wine pairing and I got some cocktails as well and everything was incredible. The waitress was very nice and knowledgeable about the food we were eating and it all looked and tasted so amazing. We would definitely like to go back

Loved it. Food was creative and wonderful tasting choices. Waiter gave good advice on how much to order. Cocktails also really.Not cheap but a really nice place. Quiet enough to have a good conversation.

We were lucky to get a table just walking in, but this place was busy! Small plates, great pacing of the food. We had the lobster pop over (A MUST HAVE), the Maine cheese plate, scallops (A MUST HAVE) and the crab dip. My drink was …. Rough….. would not recommend the home town hero. I really couldn’t finish the drink. Would come again!

Highlight of our trip to Maine! This place was phenomenal. The food was out of this world. And I appreciated that there were plenty of vegetarian and pescatarian options. The cocktails were all unique and so delicious.. not your average cocktail menu! The atmosphere and service were warm, welcoming and attentive. (Thank you to our server, Max!) Overall, just amazing.

Scrumptious food, good atmosphere and attentive service. Perfect place to enjoy a leisurely meal- but avoid if you're looking for a quick bite- for one it's pretty pricey and secondly the food comes out tapas Spanish style which is served at a very relaxed pace. Crab dip and lobster popover were our favs.

We had a family celebration (college graduation) at Sur Lie, and the entire staff could not have been more courteous to our large group. Krista had amazing patience with me as we arranged the evening in advance, accommodating any requests we had. On the evening we were there, everyone - servers, bartender, chefs, etc all were helpful and friendly!The food was absolutely incredible. We had members of our party who work in the food industry and they still (two weeks later) are talking about how amazing the chef's selections were. Everything was fresh and tasted so good - I cannot rave enough about our experience here.Please treat yourself and support this amazing business!
