It was great only because I had great company <3. But the food really isn't worth the price. I do have to say that the bumble bee drink that I ordered was delicious, and I loved the atmosphere!

So much potential! B&O offers some fantastic dishes. The food here is unarguably delicious. Dessert is mediocre, but there's a good selection of starters and entrees. I'm definitely a big fan of the brussel sprouts appetizer. The rockfish bouillabaisse and lamb shank main dishes are clutch. The rockfish sits as a whole chunk on top of the bouillabaisse and is...

As a food snob finding duck done correctly is not an easy task but B&O knocked it out the park. It was moist and crispy without being overdone, so much flavor it was awesome. My wife had the rockfish and pretty much licked the plate. Also some great cocktails and service was fast and very professional with a personal touch... More

My wife and I enjoyed an incredible meal. I would definitely recommend the Maryland Crab Bisque. The smoked bacon gives it a great flavor. For dinner I had the Wagon Wheel Farms Pork Chop. My wife had the Butchers Steak Frites. We both loved our meals. The collard greens are a must have. Our server, Ashley, was very attentive. She... More

I'm on the fence about B&O...our waitress was very polite and friendly, but because our food took so incredibly long to come, we ended up having to have it packed to go before it ever left the kitchen. Even packing the food took a long time and when we went through the order later we found that one of the... More

My husband and I have two small children and rarely get away for dinner by ourselves. We are very careful to have date-night meals where we know it will be a worthwhile experience. Because we were staying at the Monaco overnight after bidding on it at a school auction, we decided to eat at the Brasserie because we had heard... More

The breakfast was very good and I really do not enjoy breakfast. The dining upstairs was very stylish and quaint. Very enjoyable experience.

I went for a continental breakfast and was not really impressed with the service or the food. The muffin was cold and not very soft, and the side of bacon I ordered was extremely salty and thin. I did ask the waitress to warm the muffin, which she did, but it still didn't come back warm enough to even melt... More

Went this past Thanksgiving Saturday and left unimpressed. Had the mistaken impression that the name might indicate SOME connection to the famous dining once available on the Baltimore & Ohio Capitol Limited. The ONLY connection is the building location , now a hotel, where the railroad was once headquartered. Food was mediocre and overpriced. Service was unspectacular. And we should... More
