"Nouveau" Mexican may be a more apt description for the food at Lorraines. The chef combines long-held family recipes with available fresh Cape Cod seafood, and the resulting dishes are new and delicious. Now located in the old Flagship building in the quieter East End of Provincetown, Lorraine's now has gorgeous harbor views plus room for a bar—a welcome addition to all tequila fans in the area since the bar stocks over 50 varieties. A regular menu is available in addition to daily specials.
Lorraine's has been one of those Ptown restaurants that has alluded us for the past few seasons. It's situated right in the middle of our walk to and from town and the West End. It seemed like the place to try this year.
Our reservations were for 10. Good crowd. But unfortunately it was too much to handle for the incompetent waiter and staff.
It took at least 25 minutes for the waiter to finally acknowledge us and take our drink order. Another long wait after getting our drinks to get our dinner order in. When dinner finally arrived, the waiter was assisted by a couple other helpers which created more confusion with all our orders. To top it off, our waiter dripped sauce from my partner's dinner on his white shirt. NO APOLOGIES! But he acknowledged the incident only by directing one of his helpers to give him a glass of seltzer water and a napkin.
In the end, we all finally had our worst dinner experience in Provincetown.
Whenever we walk by Lorraine's and see a couple checking out their menu posted next to their doorway, we happily warn them not to eat there.
The owner is waiting tables while under influence of alcohol. She also bartends and makes louzy cheap drinks but charges plenty $$$. Being a bit over the limit she gets mouthy and mean. Poor staff having to put up with her !!!
We don't have to go back anymore but the staff maybe does.
NOT TO BE RECOMMENDED
Do you think you know Mexican food? Not! At Lorraine's, a combination of freshness, gourmet, and chile, come together unlike anywhere else. Forget the stereotypical burritos and tacos joint you know all too well. Lorraine has brought together unreal Mexican seafood dishes with an incredible family history of cooking. Don't pass on the very high quality Tequilas that she has either. I still can't find anything close to this food out here on the West Coast!
Even on a weekday night in May Lorraine's draws what appears to be a largely local crowd. We began with grilled oysters, one of the best preparation's we've ever had. Then came our favorite old-fashined duck (always enough for a great lunch next day) and amazing coconut cream pie. However we didn't try any of the dozens of tequilas that atre their specialty!
The place was great the owner and wait staff were very friendly and pleasant. The food was interesting and Gene the bartender made the best Margarita�s that drove me back to the restaurant for more after dinner drinks.
Great food, Great waitstaff and Atmosphere.
I want to go back!
We had a reservation. We had to wait about 20 minutes past our reservation time to be seated. Once inside, we saw several empty tables that remained unbussed the entire time we dined. We also saw diners come to the door, only to be told they had to wait, despite having reservations. Also, be prepared to pay extra if you want additional chips and salsa to eat while waiting for your meal. The food was average at best, bland.
We arrived early at the restaurant and as we waited on a bench just outside. While we waited workers from the restaurant were going in and out, but none bothered to say anything to us. Once inside we found a very grumpy woman sitting at a table. This was Lorraine and she was definitely not making a good impression on diners. The waitress we had was very haughty,condescending, and unhelpful. The only redeeming feature was that the food was good, but there are plently of other restaurants around with food that is just as good and strive to make its patrons feel welcome. I would never go back to Lorraines.
