My husband and I frequently travel to Baltimore for business. On our last trip we decided to go the Charleston after reading all the fantastic reviews. Our experience was mediocre at best, I'm hoping that we hit a bad night and it is not what you would normally expect from this establishment. We did a five course with wine pairing.... More

This is a restaurant for special occasions or for those that like high end food. They have a fantastic wine list which you will pay for but there are wines you'll never find it a wine store. In particular they offer wines by the glass that in other places could only be had in full bottles.

We went to the Charleston for a special occasion-anniversary dinner. The restaurant itself has a warm atmosphere and is not one of those large restaurants. Lovely, quiet ambience. We were seated near the kitchen and so got to glimpse Ms. Wolff in action in the kitchen, a nice plus. We chose the three course with a cheese plate to finish,... More

We save this restaurant to celebrate my teenage son's Birthday each year. On this occasion they were spot on at every turn. Service + great food + attentive service, equal an A+! Just wish my son would relent, and let us visit here other times during the year!

Beats Little Inn at Washington hands down. Fabulous food, great wines and wonderful atmosphere. Love the tasting-menu and paired-wine concepts.

Quality food, excellent service, impeccable ambiance, and modern cuisine with a nod to Southern Comfort - that's Baltimore's Charleston Restaurant. Chef Cindy Wolfe can compete with the chefs of New Orleans, Savannah, Memphis, and - yes - Charleston - on her terms! Clean, crisp, and comfort - It doesn't get better than this!
