What an amazing meal we had at the B&O! First off, the decor is fantastic; it's adjoining the Hotel Monaco and is also located within the historic B&O Railroad building (built in 1906). The food was incredible; from the sauteed brussels sprouts, to the Coq au Vin, to the chocolate black forest "Bete Noire," we were bowled over. Our server,... More

This restaurant was conveniently located inside the hotel we were staying, so we ate a casual dinner. The service was great - they accommodated a dietary restriction, and let us know that my pizza entree had burned and would take a little longer. Sadly, the food was just average - lacking in flavor and seasoning. Overall, it was better than... More

The Hotel Monaco is in the old headquarters of the B&O Railroad and it has carved up some of the spaces in this historic building very cool ways. In the case of the restaurant, it's a modern addition that is over the bar. This works well as you get the vibe of the bar without having to look at people... More

I went to B&O American Brasserie on my last day in Baltimore for lunch. I ordered the cobb salad, which was a large salad with your typical "Cobb" items: bacon, eggs, cheese, chicken, etc. The toppings were a little light, but it was still very filling. It was on the pricier side, but the restaurant is nice, so it should... More

Not much to consider. A limited menu and hit and miss service. We ate here since we were next door at the Lord Baltimore and it was not a great choice. Service needs upgrading - major upgrading.

Wife and I went here on a Saturday around 1pm. They didn't have many entrees on their lunch menu that appealed to us. My wife ordered something that she thought was going to be an egg-based omelette, but it was more like pizza -- a dough-based crust, vegetables, sausage and a fried egg. My burger was pretty good, but the... More

Thank you for dining with us and providing your feedback. I will have Chef look into the potato salad, it shouldn't have stayed with you all day. I believe your wife had our breakfast pie, it has the ingredients you spoke of and is a very popular item brunch. More

Went there between 4-5 weekday for bar specials and bar food specials. Horrible food, excessively slow!!! Worst part paid over $50 for really not anything worthwhile.

Only a few wines (one red, one white, one sparkling) and only one beer on special. None of the wines appealed to me. The white was chardonnay -- not that refreshing on a 96 degree day. We ordered the red pepper hummus . It lacked flavor and was served with cold pita bread. In my opinion, it was overpriced at... More

We had breakfast here and it was ok. Interesting choices, pretty diverse. Service was fine. Food was not bad by any means, just nothing particularly special. Little pricey for breakfast.
