The seafood specials here are outstanding. The ingredients and cooking style live up to the name, and the service is outstanding. The bar area gets ridiculously loud got a small place -- it's the acoustics -- so ask for a table near the street, ironically.

I have eaten at Catonsville Gourmet three times in the last few months and the food has been very good. The crab sushi and the tuna sushi were very good, the soft shell crab sandwich and fries were also very good. The desserts are terrific. Don't leave without having dessert but they are big enough to share.

We often go to the Gourmet for a quiet evening, just adults. We order a sushi roll special, great french onion soup or crab and corn bisque. The meals are divine and service is fantastic. We love the Marthas Vineyard / the Cape feel and recommend to our friends.

Our dinners consisting of Crabcake entrée and Quiche with salad and fruit was above average. We began with bread that was absolutely superb. Atmosphere was pleasant and attractive. Tables were positioned so that conversation easy and the noise level was very low. Service was above average. Parking is available in rear of building. Entrées are in the $30 range, exquisitely...

First of all you need to discover the parking in the back of the restaurant, it is a better place to park and then you have to find the door to go in from the back. (Most people go around to the front and go in that way.) The place does not have a alcohol license, so you have to... More

Catonsville Gourmet is a great spot for fresh seafood. This is a regular dinner spot for my friends, co-workers and I. The shrimp and grits, fresh fish, scallops and veggies are delicious. An added bonus...this is a BYOB restaurant!!!! My friends and I love to each bring a bottle and share. There is a one time corking fee and they... More

Great menu selection,style and service in a comfortable setting. A little noisy and frenetic but it adds to the great atmosphere. Bar seating, high top tables and cozy window front tables all add to the fun. And, a great take out option located in the market section at the rear of the restaurant! A must if passing through the "... More

The food was delicious and although they don't service alcohol, there's a store right across the street where you can buy your wine and bring it in.

Everything about this place is spot on. I visited on a quiet Tuesday evening while on a business trip. My first impression was good.....the restaurant was very clean and inviting. I was seated quickly and the waiter took very good care of me. I started off with 6 different types of oysters on the half shell. They were all very... More

Great food & great service! Loved the bouillabaise (sp.). Even though we went during a busy night, we were seated fairly quickly. Overall, a great dining experience.
