Harding Lee Smith has dedicated his life to bringing quality local ingredients back to the tables of Maine. Known for his affordable, friendly neighborhood restaurants, this former graduate of Portland’s Deering High School spent the better part of 10 years traveling the world to develop the classic creations that keep Mainers coming back for more.

The Corner Room, founded in 2009, is this award-winning chef’s third successful restaurant. Preceded by “The Grill Room” (an urban steakhouse) and “The Front Room” (serving new American comfort food). Master chef Harding then created a winning, Italian-inspired, rustic dining experience at The Corner Room.

Patrons can expect a warm, comfortable atmosphere, marked by the rich aromas of house-made pastas, pizzas, antipasti and artisanal breads. Come and enjoy the taste of Venice in the heart of Portland, ME!

The building is undergoing a rebuild so don't be put off by the staging outside. The menu is varied and can easily satisfy many a person's hunger. In house pasta and bread. Great place for a lunch or dinner. Mixed drinks and good selection of beer.

The food is very good here with generous portions. Prices are reasonable. The service sometimes is great and sometimes leaves something to be desired. They seem to recommend reservations and then sound a bit put off when you call to make them.

If I could give this restaurant six stars I would. This is the best Italian restaurant I've ever been to- and I used to frequent Boston's North End. Every dish we ordered was unimaginably good. We couldn't have ask for a better server than Josh. The ambiance was cozy and warm. The wine was perfect. The whole restaurant smells heavenly. I can't say enough good things about this place. If you're in Portland you must go!
