Disappointing experience given this restaurant is part of such a great hotel. Service was alright, menu nothing special, and food quality for a "foodie" not up to par.

Came with a business group of 8. Was able to sit at a large table toward the back that worked great. Overall atmosphere is really interesting. As others have posted a blend of chic, historic, and comfortable. There are a number of unique spaces in the restaurant from the bar to the upstairs area, to our table under the upstairs.... More

Its the NBA finals, maybe you could turn up the volume on the TV and turn down the crap music. There were 5 people in the bar, no one was dancing, they were watching the TV. When asked if we could listen, the answer was a steadfast NO. Down the street we went, would of rather hung at the hotel... More

Great food, a bit overpriced but comes with the territory, I had an amazing marinated steak, chased it with some pickled veggies, top notch!

The next door Hotel Monaco uses B&O for breakfast and provides a coupon, but it's not a suitable breakfast place. It is very dark inside, suited to dinner perhaps. The decor and furnishings are tired with no clear theme. The servers were pleasant with perky personalities but it was hard for them to overcome the dissonant setting. Banquette seating was... More

Generally, when I eat in a hotel restaurant, I keep my expectations low. But this restaurant has wonderful food and even better libations! The bartenders are knowledgeable, personable and fun. Definitely stop by!

We had a birthday dinner for 6. Ordered 2 appetizers: the Piggy and the cheese plate. Both were interesting and yummy. Half of our table ordered the Rockfish based on servers' recommendation. Fantastic! Each of us received a complimentary dessert after dinner - maybe it was the birthday or maybe it was due to the fact that we ordered 2... More

We were staying at the Monaco Hotel where the brasserie is located, but unlike the hotel which I would recommend, the brasserie is a dud. We had breakfast there which was lacklustre (one piece of toast with my American breakfast, one jam on the table, got my order wrong too), plus drab Decore. We went for a cocktail - not... More

I love the decor! Chic modern design. We sat at the bar before dinner because we were early for our reservation and I'm glad we did! The bartenders put on a show for us! They had a spiced cocktail list when we went. The cinnamon inspired one was fabulous! Perfectly balanced. Our table was on the second floor and our... More

We had an amazing meal here! My husband and I are in F&B and live in Los Angeles. The city of angels has the best cocktails and most unique mixologists, or so I thought! The cocktails here blew my mind! I think I tried them all. The flavors were so unique, I should've written down the recipes:) this review is... More

When you inherit a space as magical as the historic former Baltimore & Ohio Railroad headquarters, you've got to do it justice. We kept our building's most stunning architectural features intact while updating the space with contemporary design elements and nostalgic touches, like chairs and table lamps from original B&O dining cars. Our practices are distinctly 21st century, though, from selecting the best local produce at the farmer's market to serving cutting-edge craft cocktails to maintaining a steadfast commitment to sustainable business practices. If only train passengers from the early 1900s had it so good!
