Beautiful setting, very good food

This restaurant has an amazing setting on Baltimore's waterfront. Very scenic. Food is very interesting, and, perhaps to be expected, very pricey since it's housed in the Four Seasons Hotel. It's a huge bar scene, so be prepared for a bustling atmosphere.

We were guest at the Four Seasons so eating at Wit and Wisdom was very convenient. Our group had 11 people and they still managed to deliver great food and excellent service both at lunch and for Sunday brunch. The spread for Sunday brunch was very creative and different than the normal buffet, I would recommend it to anyone looking... More

For a restaurant of this caliber, our brunch was a huge disappointment. Started with the server dribbling coffee on the table at each cup. After the first couple, she just quit apologizing or wiping it up. The brunch buffet is spread over a large area, and there is a wide and well-considered assortment of offerings, from hot items to fruit,... More

A great dinner cooked and served perfectly, as well as fantastic service. My wife and I had the Bison and Skirt steaks. My skirt steak was very flavorful. The crowd was actually a younger 30-something crowd probably more there for the lounge, which was packed! About the noise- probably spill over from the lounge but it did make for sometimes... More

One of the greatest attractions about Wit and Wisdom is its location. In the four seasons hotel with the best view of the inner harbour. Great promenade outside and views, and I believe there are outdoor tables when it is warm. Wit and Wisdom has a very large bar area where it does a big happy hour for a classy... More

This is by far one of my favorite restaurants. Located in the Four Seasons, Baltimore, I took by office staff for post holiday dinner and was not disappointed. We were a hour late to our reservations (President Obama was in town and didnt tell us) as some streets were shut down. The staff was completely understanding and informed us that... More

We enjoy looking for new places to eat. This was a great find. The food is delicious! The crab cake sandwich was a perfect lunch and the butternut squash soup is amazing. The only issue I have is how expensive the prices are for a small amount of food. The additional problem is that they close for a few hours... More

Cooked to perfection. You just have to try it. You may never go back to Filet Mignon or any other traditional style stake.

The venue itself is casual elegant. Fine by the glass kitchen and enjoy incredible views of the harbor. The veal Osso Buca is excellent as was the Lobster Pot Pie. Drinks are generous pours. Service was excellent. Located within the Four Seasons Hotel. Valet parking was $8, and convenient.
