Good, but should be better

This place has always been very reliable, and has a dynamite location with a superb deck view of the harbor. Service is always been excellent and we have had past dinners which were of a very high caliber.however, there has been a change in chefs, and today's brunch was just okay. Certainly good... read more

Talk about a mixed bag. I want to give it a 2.5. It is right on the water and you can't beat the views, especially if you are seated outside. The decor is pretty and modern making Waterfront Kitchen a nice place to be all around. Just be prepared for a long, leisurely meal. The service is pretty terrible, not... More

excellent , delicious, beautiful! The new chef has already proved himself in his first restaurant week. Well worth the two block walk away from trendy Fells Point

First the positive point: The location on the water is pleasant. Now the negatives: The Restaurant was virtually empty at 2 pm so my group of 4 thought we would receive decent if not attentive service. We asked for sparkling water and the waiter brought over a bottle of warm Pellegrino. We pointed out that the Pellegrino was warm and... More

I have dined here twice for dinner in the past six months and both times were a great experience. The ambiance is an unassuming but upscale casual nautical theme. The waterside dinning offers views galore of the inner harbor. The servers give very personal attention to detail and are knowledgeable of their menu offeriings. The food is exquisitedly prepared and... More

Ok.... when you walk into a restaurant - on Father's Day, with your child and wife - and the hostess acts like she'd rather not deal with you...you may want to turn around. Better, save yourself some time and money and don't try a new thing on an important day. This is an average (at best) place with horrible service.... More

After reading some of the reviews about this restaurant we decided to forgo our standard choices and try something new. The view is wonderful along with the inside décor. It was Sunday evening so there were not many other diners. There were limited menu options, but we managed to select entrees, which I found rather pricey. My husbands ceasar salad... More

I love the location of this restaurant. And I love the concept of (direct) farm to kitchen. Visited about 2 years ago and had a good meal. This more recent visit was less than impressive. Not that it was "bad" just not creative or up to other places in the area. Service friendly but slow. Will probably go elsewhere when... More
