What looks like a neighborhood bar on a quiet neighborhood corner is really a foodie's reward for finding on street parking in this quiet Baltimore neighborhood of cobblestone streets and quaint row homes. 10 tables, small bar and laminated menus disguise this fantastic find of eclectic wines and superior foods and pies made on-site. Come in, sit down, engage the... More

Great little place. Awesome crab cake sliders and I got the special $3 bbq slider as well...all excellent. The corn chowder with lump crab ranks among the top soups I have ever tasted...must order. Excellent, friendly service. I will return!

Our favorite meal in Baltimore here at this small restaurant and bar.

And his love for the Orioles is contagious.Victor was cooking up victuals on our day and did... More

From the moment we got there the bartender and the owner, who was also the chef, were friendly and helpful. I couldn't find a parking place as they are near Camden Yards, and the Orioles were playing that night, He helped me by getting a parking pass from one of his local friends so I could park. That was above... More

I can't say enough great things about Chef Wesley and his staff. The meals are amazing, the interactions are pure and natural. It's the best way to spend an evening. This time I had the weekly special sandwich - AMAZING! The wine and beer selection are great as well. If you are reading this, message me and I can give... More

After reviewing TA, I walked here from my hotel wanting a small, local place for dinner. It is more of a bar with a very small restaurant included. Nothing fancy but I was ok with that. The menu is limited. I ordered the corn soup with crab and the crab cakes with truffle fries and asparagus. Everything was a little... More

The Corner Bistro is just a short walk from the convention center and worth every step. The service was as good as a five star restaurant and much more welcoming. The food was really good. I did the Baltimore visitor thing and had crab cakes so I need to go back and try some of the other items on the... More

Ate here two nights in a row while in the neighborhood for a conference. Was recommended by the owner so the Rachael's Dowry B&B (also excellent) nearby. Had corn chowder with crab both nights, followed by fish special and then crab ciabatta sandwich. Everything delicious, cozy, neighborhood feel. Highly recommended.
