This was a planned dinner for our last night in Baltimore; a beaut write up that did not disappoint. The food was great (Short Rib Sliders to share; two of the Basted Scallops, and a Black Forest Bete Noire to share) washed down with a jar of Line State Punch. Food was great, service from Ashley was attentive but not... More

There were 12 of us for breakfast. It was apparent to me that the restaurant staff was not prepared to handle a party of this size. It took way too long to place our order and way too long to receive our food. Not everyone in our party was served at the same time. Our waitress didn't seem happy to... More

Thank you for your feedback and my apologies on the delays in service. I always recommend reservations in advance so we know to expect a large group. We make everything a la minute so larger orders do take a little longer. I do hope you return to Baltimore and visit us again. More

We sampled all their appetizers and a couple of different entrees it was all great. Our 12 year old was allowed to order off the hotel room service menu.

I enjoyed a very nice few drinks and a meal here. The food was well prepared, tasty and put on the plate with thought and skill. Plenty if choices in terms if both food and drink, and the venue benefits from a busy, downtown feel. Good spot for an informal dinner, but good for a business meal too.

Fantastic menu. Everything was delicious. The bête noir alone will have me coming back for more (and it has already! Twice!). Delicious cocktails and the draught stout was perfect. Can't go wrong with the Pâté. Or gnocchi. Or scallops. Or anything! Nice atmosphere and beautiful building. Valet parking is a great bonus!

Their happy hour is good with healthy choices available. I had 2 appetizers and the grilled cheese and all were very tastey! The bartendar was very friendly and even introduced herself, which was appreciated by a solo business traveler. I would have gone again had I been in Baltimore another night.

We visited on a week night during restaurant week for cocktails and dinner. Drinks and food were both delicious, top notch. I had the apple fennel salad and potato pancake. My husband really enjoyed his food as well. We sat upstairs in a booth. I like that the tables are spread out with plenty of room around each. It makes... More

The bartender at the national art show we attended recommended this for dinner or brunch. We chose brunch; it was delicious. I had the crab cake sandwich, which I had to deconstruct because the fresh bun was so big and so was the crab cake! That's not a complaint; I was quite happy. Three of my companions had the cassoulet,... More

We ate here because there was a major blizzard outside and we were staying at the Monaco Hotel. It turned out to be a very nice meal. The menu was somewhat limited but we settled on one three course meal designed for restaurant week and one stand alone entre. The sale was really excellent, with Apple and candied walnuts. More...
