Excellent wait staff, excellent food. This where you should go if you want a great steak.p or seafood. Try the salad, it is filling but well worth it. Extensive wine list.

This was a great place for our group. We had a private room upstairs and nice a quiet for conversation. Everything from the appetizers, wine and service was outstanding! When we all sat down to order it was great insight as to what was recommended along with explanation of any entrees. I personally had the lobster and cowboy rib eye.... More

While my wife loved the crab cakes, my filet was the best I have ever eaten. This is fine dining at it's best, and so was the service. A must meal when in Annapolis

My husband had clients at your Restruant in the past & was excited to share it with me. The cowboy rib eye steak was not even close to prime, aspharagus was extremely thin & woody, the potato dish was served gently warm not hot & the crab cakes mediocre at best & were served fried not broiled.

I'm incredibly sorry that we failed to meet your expectations, and I'm even more sorry to see that this experience prompted you to write your first negative review. The last thing we want is for any of our guests to leave upset! It sounds like the steak just wasn't cooked properly, and I apologize for that. Our asparagus and potato... More

Our family went out for a good steak the night before Induction Day 2015 at the Naval Academy. So we had a Plebe in the making with us. We chose Lewnes for her last meal before the big day.

Thank you for your detailed and thoughtful review. I will definitely take your feedback about the cocktails back to the team. Also, I do apologize that the oil-to-steak ratio wasn't ideal. Here at Lewnes', we like to include all of the steak juices on our plates for maximum flavor, but I understand that isn't always to everyone's liking. I hope... More

The restaurant is over the bridge from the main part of town, but an easy walk in good weather. The service was attentive and the decor is pleasing. Our veal chops were okay and acceptable, but not outstanding. With so many restaurants in the Annapolis area, we certainly would like to try other places on our next visit.

Thanks for the feedback! If you didn't love the veal, I recommend trying one of our steaks -- they're our most popular offering! Next time you visit to the Annapolis area, I'd love to have you back to deliver an exceptional experience. Best, Sam Lewnes More

Instead of choosing the best hotel and walking to a good restaurant, do the reverse: make a reservation at the best restaurant - Lewnes - and stay nearby. Reasons for dining here: 1. Service: Patti was a wonderful and personable server, again. 2. Atmosphere: Ask for the wine cellar room, if available. Charming view of an impressive collection. Soft jazz... More
