I recently hosted my mother's 80th birthday party in the Olive Room. It was a party for about 50 guests, that I planned from the West Coast. Guests came from around the country and from Europe. In short, the party could not have been more successful. Our guests, who frequent the best restaurants, raved about the food. Dimitris (the owner)... More

Dimitris and all the staff did a fantastic job with the food, the beverages, setting up a tv screen for a slide show and using our own playlist for music. The ingredients and special care that went into the crab cakes, grilled shrimp, hummus and all the food was evident as everything was fresh and delicious. When two guests arrived... More

We stumbled upon this gem just by walking past their sign board on the side walk. It's at the top level of an inn, so we didn't know what to expect until we rode the elevator up. We came at an off time - right as they opened at 5 P.M., which was too late for lunch and kind of... More

The Olive Room was an unexpected treat. Their location at the end of Harbor East provides stunning views of the Baltimore Inner Harbor. They have a super fun wine list and great little bites to eat. It's a great little treat, even if you're not staying at the hotel.

this place totally re-wired my brain and my conceptions of taste and reality with their baklava, i highly recommend the baklava ice cream as well. a little bit of that, with the amazing rooftop view, and you'll think you were on jupiter or something because it is definitely not of this world.

The food was excellent. Grilled Shrimp and Grilled Mushroom Appetizers; Chicken and Lamb entrees which came with a delicious stuffed pepper. Quite an interesting and delicious vegetable of the day. Service was a bit slow, considering they were not terribly busy, but we didn't mind because we were not in a hurry that night.

We've hosted a few business dinners here and I cannot wait to go for a non-work related meal. The food, the staff, the view are all amazing and it is my new must-see for out-of-town guests.

The Olive Room has a very nice view and ambience. The chef can cook but even the best chef can get killed by the wait staff. The waiter was very personable but obviously not trained. We were there early and the restaurant was not busy yet all four dishes were brought out at the same time. Three were too cold... More

My family was so excited to treat me to a Greek restaurant with views on Mother's day. In summary: the service was terrible, we had to ask for a table cover and ask for someone to take our order after waiting for a while after we were seated; the food was at best a Hampton Inn free breakfast level and...

The food at the Inn was prepared very well and the biodynamic wines paired well and provided a unique experience. Loved the mixed drinks and the atmosphere as well.
