A fine restaurant

Many consider this the best restaurant in Baltimore. I think it is one of the best Restaurants south of New York City and it competes well with many in that august City. The decor is modern. It is a large space broken up into a number of intimate rooms. My wife and I were in a back room that... read more

We have been for dinner before and we are always treated so well and the food is over the top. The food is not traditional Baltimore fare but the southern touch is amazing

Everything was excellent. Very classy. Do feel overpriced and one does not get their full bang for the buck. There are also other restaurants that I'd go to before this for ambiance

This is reviewed as the best restaurant in Baltimore and is built upon the concept of small plates for each course. It is also expensive, but that is to be expected. You can see what food items they are offering by reviewing their website, which is what I would highly recommend that you do before your first visit. This is... More

This restaurant sets the standard for fine dining in Baltimore. The menu is inventive without being outlandish. The wine list is spectacular. The ambiance is refined.

I wanted to treat my husband to a special meal for a "big deal" promotion he had earned at work. We enjoyed what we both agreed was one of the best meals of our lives! The food was absolutely delicious, and the service was exemplary - our server guided our choices for food and wine after (actually!) listening to our... More

Charleston is quite simply the best "night out" in Baltimore -- fantastic food, service, and ambience. You choose from a menu that is priced by the number of courses you want -- and the server makes it clear that if you choose 4 courses you can have 2 of any item for 2 of your courses. In other words, no... More

Service is impeccable; food is always 5 stars. Wine cellar or provate dining room are best for privacy/quiet.
