Small restaurant close to where I stayed. Nice staff and good food! I even went there twice, and met a couple who also came back a second time.

We are in Baltimore for a week for a conference. I found this restaurant on TA, and it was within close walking distance of our hotel. I made a reservation and was glad I did. There are 6 or so bar stools, 3 two-person bar tables and 6 regular tables. The restaurant is small, but cozy and not too loud.... More

We couldn't fault the friendly welcome on arrival and the very pleasant wait staff but the food was disappointing. The crab cakes and tomato risotto were bpth very bland and the New York strip steak was overcooked and very fatty. Other people seem to love this place so maybe we were just unlucky that night ........

Derek the owner is so lovely and friendly! The food and service is great. Sit at the bar and chat with the locals and you will feel at home. Great crab cakes and good wine list.

Located in a residential area between Camden Yards and the University of Maryland Medical Center this is a wonderful find. I was there for a business dinner, but the atmosphere is more suited for a lovely dinner for two or a small group of friends. Our group of 15 pretty much took most of the table seating in this small... More

Staff very friendly, close to Rachel's Dowry, food and wine were excellent! Mostly young professionals and college students but is quiet enough for a good meal.

Outdoor patio seating. Great casual ambiance. Delicious flat bread appetizer. Good wine selection. Not so good beer.

Very quaint and charming bistro in a residential area near Camden yards. The atmosphere is warm and cozy. The food was outstanding.....in fact we went back the second night while in town because our meal was so good. Menu was discreet.....but hit the mark. Definitely would go back when in town.

My roommates and I live in Fed Hill and wanted to try somewhere new and found this little place. The food was amazing; their meatball and penne special was SO GOOD. Our sandwiches and my burger were fantastic. Our wine was great and we will definitely come back!

Their crab cakes are outstanding! I had mine with sauteed spinach (which was actually a bit too salty to my taste) and risotto. The triple chocolate mousse was also delicious. The place is small, well decorated and well kept, and has a very comfortable atmosphere. Service was effective and Derrick (the owner) couldn't have been more attentive to our needs.... More
