Went for brunch. Staff was extremely friendly we were greeted right when we walked in. Our table wasn’t ready but they got us drinks while we waited. The service was fast and the food was incredible. I highly recommend the chicken and waffles and a double mimosa. Will definitely return to try dinner.
Arrived and waited for our table. Once we got in we were told be "be aware people are dining after us" so basically no lingering, which is find but an odd comment we felt. After only ordering drinks, despite knowing what we wanted, we wait about 15-20 min for drinks and then finally to order food. I love the idea of staggering the meal to see more upscale but being told not to sit an linger and then waiting so long for everything is a little rediculous. Maybe reservations need to be pushed longer, or if it's a brunch and not multiple entrees and extras not make people wait 30 min or more to order do drinks and food for brunch when waiting tables? Again the idea is great I just think some kinks need to be worked out.
The food, service, and atmosphere were amazing. My one complaint is that I had an 8:00 reservation and wasn’t seated until after 8:30. I will definitely be back to try again. Courtlynd was killing it behind the busy bar, it was a nice surprise to see a familiar and friendly face when I sat down.
Reservations were made for outdoor seating in advance and we still had to wait over 30 minutes for our table. It took an hour for our entrees to arrive and when they did, they subbed the quinoa for mashed potatoes without letting guests know. I’d been looking forward to trying their quinoa. Nothing would have been said if I hadn’t mentioned the quinoa was not plated. Apparently, they ran out and didn’t ask us before making our meals what other side we would like. Not impressed for $26 entree not to be notified prior to being served that the meal had to be changed. Domes were also very cold even though heated. Long wait to be seated, for drinks and for food. Nice atmosphere but definitely has some kinks to be worked out.
Enjoyed the food and the presentation. We had a reservation but still had to wait to get seated. You get an allotted amount of time don’t really care for that. Would go back.
It was good
The food didn't live up to,the atmosphere, it was ok. For the price i expected to be amazed
We love this place and will definitely be back. Food and atmosphere was amazing!
Atmosphere was great!! Staff very nice and helpful. Food was AWESOME!!
This was my third time eating at Kanu. The atmosphere is great. the service is great. the food has been pretty good. I had the pleasure of sitting right next to the kitchen window so i could see everything going on including one of the cooks that was plating food drop a glove on the floor then pick it up and put it on. Since my first visit i have been looking forward to trying the prime rib. I ordered the king cut medium rare. As i watched the cook cutting the prime rib i honestly couldn't tell the difference between the queen and the king cut. there was no measuring or weighing. I personally did not like the way my meat was cooked. it was well done and seemed to have been soaked in some type of juice. my wife loved her Autumn harvest salad with salmon and we both enjoyed a strawberry shake. I have recommended this great addition to Old Town to several people and will continue to do so. I am glad to have them here and hope it attracts other business owners to improve our downtown area. so i thank them for that. Overall i have had great experiences here and will continue to go. I will just be a little more descriptive of how i want my prime rib done if i order it again.
We had a great experience. We were in the heated igloos that are outside on the rooftop which was super fun and different! We had great service and the food was amazing. Will definitely be going back!
Food was great drinks way overpriced for the quality
The food was terrific as always, friendly wait staff, a great date night.
Had a great experience at Kanu! Can't wait to go back to try brunch!
Excellent! We’ll be back!
We made a reservation to celebrate my birthday. We went for a Sunday brunch. Our server was wonderful and the food was delicious. We purchased alcoholic beverages and the bill was super affordable. We cannot wait to go there again.
Eliza was the best server I’ve had in a long time, at any restaurant. I was very pleased.
we loved kanu! the bartender was our server and she was amazing and super friendly! we went for brunch & can’t wait to go back for dinner! the only downside was that the eggs in our benedict were way over cooked! but we had such a great time that it was not even a big deal. the drinks were delicious and the decor was beautiful!
Need a better sign out front. They gave my meal to another table but replaced fairly quickly. Food was great. Atmosphere was great. Cocktail was really delicious
We ate in a dome outside on the 3rd floor and it was such an amazing experience!
The only thing we didn’t like was having the table right by the door.
Credit card penalty is ludicrous I’ve told several people about this and 90% of them come back and say what’s with this credit card requirement and penalty of $50 per person if you cancel within 24 hours. Other than that it’s a nice place.
Amazing food, Excellent Staff, and Beautiful interior. Cannot wait to go back to the rooftop terrace when the weather warms.
Beautiful decor and ambiance. Food was amazing. Had the Pork Belly Lollipops (melt in your mouth) and Prime Rib (amazing). Our drinks were spot on also. Can't wait to go back.
We had a wonderful experience dining here for my husband’s birthday. The waiter was very attentive and so sweet. He made sure we had drinks full and were happy. He wished my husband happy birthday several times too which was very nice. We didn’t wait long for our food and it was delicious. Thank you for such a great evening!
Went for our anniversary dinner. Was a fantastic choice!! The staff was friendly and personable and food was great!!
Great service, food, and atmosphere! Highly recommend!
Food was amazing. Waitstaff was super friendly and helpful.
Beat prime rib I have ever had. Portions were perfect
Awful smell- smelled like a mail
Step up dining in old town maine! Highly recommended!
Loved the appearance, waiter visited the table maybe 2 times, took a long time. Not a lot of menu items. Ordered a burger and didn’t like it at all.
An overall great dining experience. Drinks are a little pricey, but the restaurant has an up-scale atmosphere. Very comfortable setting, however. Service was good and food was well prepared and delicious.
Although our visit was less than outstanding, we plan to visit again as the staff continues to work out the kinks. Food was very good, presentation was excellent, our server was very pleasant and did a very good job. Kanu has some work to do behind both the main level bar and the second floor bar. We arrived early hoping to start with a drink and waited 20 minutes only to be seated before our drinks arrived. Once seated it took another 20 minutes for the drinks to trickle in. Our plan is to give it a couple of months and try again.
The food was excellent. The background music playlist was great. Unfortunately, we had the worst table in the entire place. Our table was right at the front door up against the host stand. Only time we ever saw what the restaurant looked like was when we walked through it to use the restroom.
We ate in the dome outside, it was nice. The server was attentive. Food was excellent. Can’t wait to go try weekend brunch
I would definitely dine here again and look forward to booking another outing here at Kanu. I have traveled all over the world and have dined at many places and this ranks the one of the highest.
Excellent brunch menu at Kanu - a new, beautifully decorated restaurant on Main St. in Old Town. Very friendly, helpful staff! Delicious breads & pastry. Nice bar. Following CDC guidelines for health & safety of staff & customers.
Waited an hour for food, but it was worth the wait. Everything was really good! Amazing Bloody Mary!!
