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.

Excellent service, site and cuisine. Knowledgeable and friendly. I especially loved the seafood availability--oysters/crab. Lunch and Dinner-time wine events.

I was trying to throw together my wedding in a frantic last minute rush and was so disappointed with every place I called. I found The Olive Room by fluke on a random list of restaurants (which is a shame they are so hidden). I called and actually got to speak to the owner who was so sweet and attentive... More

The service was phenomenal! The food was excellent! My wife and I stayed at the hotel the night before so we decided to visit the 5th floor for their brunch. Everything was prepared with detailed precision and superb taste in mind! My new favorite restaurant! Compliments to the chef and the staff!
