Very Nice

Was able to get a last minute reservation for two on a busy night in Annapolis. Restaurant was pretty full and we were seated immediately. Greeted quickly by our upbeat server Nathan. Bread and water were brought and refied promptly by their excellent staff. (Skip the white rolls and go for... read more

Delayed in making plans for Mother's Day too long. And then the day was delightful weatherwise! So we decided -- just the two of us -- to drive 50 miles to Annapolis, watch boats and people and find something to eat. Tried to make a reservation at Café Normandie which is very close to the harbor, but the restaurant was... More

We went on a Wednesday evening to celebrate an anniversary, however despite letting the restaurant know, no mention was made. It appeared there was but one waiter for most of the evening, but service was quite good and fast. Veal with mushrooms offered 3 slices of meat with sauce and mushrooms was a bit salty for our taste. The crab... More

We had dinner on a Saturday evening. It was very busy and we had to wait 30 minutes even though we had a reservation. However, they were very apologetic and gave us free drinks while we waited. The salads were plentiful, made with very fresh ingredients and were very good. Two of us had the sea bass fish of the... More

We met friends for dinner. We had the duck. It was wonderful. They where very busy. We where lucky and parking was easy. The service was a little to rushed for me. Our waiter was pleasant but so busy he would drop plates down or splash us with coffee not knowing. I feel slow is smooth. That was the only... More

My husband and I caught the prix fixe, three course meal before attending a show nearby. The prix fixe menu has many of their chef's specialties. I had the house pate', which was a large, delicious portion I would recommend. The highlight of the dinner was my husband's salmon served in a light beurre blanc sauce with blue berries. While...

A work day in Annapolis turned into a delightful afternoon. The apecials on the chalk board sounded intriquing and I was a bit too hungry to go any further. I had the grilled avocado filled with crab meat on a bed of field greena and a side order of French Fries. Sometimes I just need the fires. Both plates were... More

We had dinner here Friday night and they were wonderful. We had misjudged how long it would take to get to Annapolis - 2 hours from Baltimore on a Friday night - and they had a table ready for us when we arrived way past our reservation. We told the waitress we had to leave in 40 minutes to make... More

We arrived a few minutes early for our reservation on a Saturday night when they were very busy. They could not seat us and were obviously struggling with the chaos. We offered to go next door for a drink and come back and they said they could offer us a drink. Everyone gave their order and then they came back... More
