I have used this restaurant for personal and business reasons, and for various parties. I have to say that never once did this place let me down. The foods are always prepared to the highest standard possible and the staff are always friendly, efficient and knowledgeable in terms of their menu. It has always been my number one restaurant in...

Really enjoyed our experience. Valet parking at the front door and server takes your valet slip after your meal so your vehicle is at the front door when you walk out. We all chose 3 courses and that was plenty for everyone. To clarify, that is 3 choices from the menu plus 1 desert. The menu was very creative and... More

Ten years ago it was the Savannah,owned by the same folks,with one of them the executive chef.the restaurant was relocated to a prime spot and renamed Charleston,with the same lady presiding over a talented kitchen,and training wait staff to a high level. Ask high level of consistency is the mark of a fine restaurant. The decor and ambiance are elegant... More

This place is special. Inventive menu and dishes, excellent wine pairing options. You order and pay by the number of courses you choose to order. The hardest part will be narrowing your choices! If you are a Foodie, this has to be at the top of your list when visiting Baltimore.

If you have anything less than four courses, you're missing out! It's just so hard to pick only four. Don't miss out on the wine pairings as well, you won't be disappointed! My fiancé and I each ordered something different so we could share and not have to limit our selections as much. To date, the lobster bisque was the... More

Went for a late Valentine's Day dinner (on February 15th)- top notch classy atmosphere, amazing service and truly memorable food. Pricey, but worth it- about $450 for 4 course meal for two with a nice bottle of wine, desert and cappuccino. Make reservations, especially for weekends /holidays.

I love the food. Maybe it's my big appetite, but the portions seem small. Had low country food with duck breast. The duck breast was the size of my thumb

Just an absolutely perfect meal for a birthday dinner. Choices from the tasting menu were delightful, service was impeccable without being overbearing. Great atmosphere as we could see Chef Wolf expediting from the kitchen. Expensive, but completely worth it for any foodie.

Everything was perfect from the start. the wines were all great; the courses were spread out with time to enjoy every bite and every flavor. The service was impeccable and I hope to go again sometime. Oh and 3 courses are plenty.
