    We are slowly picking our way through all the Portland restaurants that are all booked up in the summer. Food was delicious and arrived with perfect timing but seemed somewhat overpriced. Great service: didn’t have to wait for the check or to pay. But we were one of only five parties at 6 pm on a dark and cold Thursday. We will be back.

    The oysters change between our visits so we are always able to try new ones. Very fresh and we love comparing them. The menu is really interesting and we come away with new ideas about now to blend various ingredients when we cook at home. Great place to explore taste and very good cocktails.

    I liked this restaurant. The service was professional, the menu was simple and well thought out and the food was very nice. On a scale of 1 to 10 I would have given this place a 7. The food was good, very good but not great. And let me clarify that great for me is an epicurean experience that transports me almost to a point of addiction. I will forget the meal here in a few days but it still was good. What keeps me from giving this place a 7 is they have a sneaky "Fair Wage Service Fee" on the bill. This is not a huge expense and I understand the logic behind it but I disagree. The idea is to charge customers a forced tip based on the percentage of how much they send so they can give that to people that don't work in the service end of the restaurant, dishwashers, cooks, whatever. I don't like this. If I want to tip someone because the service was good or exceptional then it should be my choice. Not a forced decision without my knowledge. Mind you, there probably is in writing somewhere on the menu a notice that tells me about this, but who reads the menu outside of what one wants to order. Tipping is a voluntary practice to reflect the type of service one receives. I am willing to buy food and drink at the cost a restaurant provides. It is an agreed exchange for goods or services. The restaurant is responsible for running a restaurant and charging prices that reflect the cost of business. Pass that cost on to me in the price of the food and drink I am buying, not a "Fare Wage Service Charge". I came to enjoy a meal, not get nickeled and dimmed about operations. I give this place a 5 and I just don't see myself going back. It's a matter of principal. I have too many options that don't take money this way.

    Great as usual. Such a good restaurant and oddly doesn’t get the attention that the big names closer to the center of town receive. Thoughtful seasonal menu, creative and affordable wine list, superb service. Johnnycakes with trout roe are now a family tradition for us. I suppose that I should keep this all a secret and enjoy it without the crowds but these folks deserve more attention and accolades

    Excellent oysters and cocktails. However, the limited menu was disappointing (three dinner entree options, one of which was bluefish...?), so we opted to get dinner elsewhere. Oh, and the wine list? A wee bit too exclusive for this couple.

    A delightful experience. Our waiter was always available at exactly the right times, and the food was terrific: excellent oysters, and the hen-of-the-woods mushrooms were especially delicious. Nice room, and it was very quiet -- might be more noisy on the weekend, but the tables were far enough apart that it might not matter.

    We were staying at a hotel down the street and asked a local for a seafood restaurant nearby. We didn’t check reviews it was late and we just wanted something close. Wow we got lucky I guess because the place was awesome. Very nice place, with great ambiance! The chef was awesome ! The waiter was great, the food the drinks ..everything. We had fresh oysters on half shell, an apple and pistachio salad that was soo good I wanted every last drop of the oil dressing . I asked for sourdough bread, instead I got better! Our waiter brought out 4 slices of fresh hot brioche with butter. It was to die for. The main entree was a blue fish on a bed of three bean salad (I believe) that was fresh and delicious. We asked for a desert to go (chocolate olive oil cake ) . Delicious meal! Can’t say enough good things about this great restaurant! It will not disappoint! Btw our waiter was great, he was there when we needed him but not hovering. ( I am terrible with names , wish I could remember his name…sorry.) Perfection on all accounts!

    Upscale oyster bar - good selection of local oysters, johnny cakes were delicious, very good tuna crudo. Generally a small menu, 3 main dish options and a handful of starters. My one gripe - they don't have soda, but can make you a 'mocktail' version of one and charge you a lot of money for it.

    Food was delicious. Sat at the bar and had a great experience . Oysters , lobster, salad - all great. Had the duck confit and it was so good! Finished up with the chocolate cake which was also excellent. Overall a great experience. The bartender was really good- friendly but not too friendly - and offered his opinions when it mattered. Only thing I will say negative is there’s only 3 entrées so if you don’t like them you would be limited .

    First visit, but won’t be the last! We ate at the bar, with comfortable seating and attentive service. Interesting selection of wines and cocktails. Great raw bar and starters. The dinner selections were only three, but the two my wife and I had were excellent, as was the chocolate cake option.

    This is really an oyster bar - somewhere with a choice of only 3 entrees can’t really refer to itself as a bistro. The oysters, johnnycakes and tartare were great, and the smoked monkfish entree was really good, but the hake and chickpeas entree was the dullest, most tedious entree I’ve ever eaten at a restaurant.

    The waiter was rude and the menu pretty much had nothing. The food was okay that we got but could have been better. We also had a reservation but still had to wait a half hour to be seated . We were offered drinks that came one by one every ten minutes while we waited instead of altogether too

    Seafood that sparkles! We had a refined and delicious dinner with friends at Helm and it exceeded our expectations. The Johnny Cakes are a delightful corn meal cake topped with roe that pops in your mouth balanced with salty rich butter sauce. The oysters were briny and perfect and the salads and entrees were perfect and seasonal. The personal care that goes into dining at Helm shows every step of the way.
