Ideal place to have dinner and watch the fourth of July fireworks. Lovely restaurant with an outside deck facing the water. Dinner was delicious - I had the filet mignon- medium. It was juicy and soft! My partner had the meatloaf - very flavorful. For desert we shared the spiced cake. It was good, but nothing spectacular. We had a... More

We enjoyed outdoor seating on a very pleasant summer evening. The food was good, although at times I found the service to be slow. It is a noble idea in the premise, so I give them extra props for the Living Kitchen concept. Prices were very reasonable too. The manager made an excellent recommendation for wine and he clearly had... More

Went here for my birthday on 4 Jul. We weren't able to get reservations at the time of the fireworks, so we went earlier (7 PM). Since I forgot to request outside seating, we were seated in the restaurant. No big deal. My only gripe about this was that despite the restaurant being mostly empty, they seated everyone at adjacent... More

We went to Waterfront Kitchen with high hopes but the food just didn't cooperate. We started with duck leg confit and an asparagus goat cheese terrine. Neither was good. The duck leg was the driest and most overcooked I have ever seen and it had a gamey taste to it. The asparagus terrine was nothing more than a bunch of... More

We happened upon this restaurant for lunch. We were all very pleased with our food. If they have the shrimp salad sandwich on special it's worth a try. Our service was SLOW. The restaurant was not packed so there was no reason for the slow service. That being said I would eat there again.

The first reason that we liked it was for all the normal restaurant reasons: good food, good service, great view. This is not a five star leading edge culinary center, it's a good, honest Baltimore restaurant with a staff that obviously cares. Our waiter was cheerful, knew the menu well enough, served us promptly and was attentive. No, he didn't... More

I went to Waterfront Kitchen for my 4 year anniversary with my girlfriend. The view is the best in Baltimore. We started off with drinks and appetizers. Both were excellent! However after we got our drinks our waiter gave up. Lastly, we finally got our dinner. The filet was dry, cooked medium rare. The duck was delicious. Our waiter honestly... More

Made reservations for a group of 4 ladies to celebrate the 60th birthday of one of them. Noted in reservation and when we arrived that it was a special occasion. We are not seated in a prime spot nor offered inside or out. Simply sat us near the busy entry door between the two. Also, while not expecting large freebies,... More

We've been here before for the view and the ambience, but I'm afraid it's our last time. While the kale salad was outstanding, the trout was inedible. Assured that they could make my fried rice without the lobster I went ahead and ordered it. Sadly, the soy sauce was so overwhelming it overpowered the delicate (if overcooked) trout. Strawberry shortcake... More

As you can tell from several of my reviews, I always like to give a place at least two shots before I declare that it's not up to par. Well this place got its chance, and it failed. Took a visiting professor here for dinner with two other colleagues. Too hot to sit outside, so got a table inside with... More
