We had an awesome meal at Waterfront Kitchen! They work with inner city kids to grow as much produce as possible for use in the restaurant. Our waiter was superb...very attentive without being overbearing. The chicken was flavorful and moist as was the burger. You pay a little bit more for being on the waterfront but the quality of ingredients... More

The crab soup was superb, but it had to be at $14 a bowl. Everything else was good, not wonderful but quite acceptable. Given the price I'd have struggled to give this place 4 stars, but the view puts it over the top. Especially when there's a thunderstorm over the harbor followed by a rainbow.

Great place!! They serve ceviche and the salmon was great!!! Perfect location for an intimate upscale dinner. On the waterfront in Fells Point. Can't go wrong!

We had planned on a crab cake dinner but were too hungry to wait the one hour wait for the restaurant we had originally planned to go to. So we went to the Waterfront Kitchen on a reccomendation. Since we were set for crab cakes we ordered theirs. Unfortunately they were not the best crab cakes, they did not have... More

My wife and I met another couple, best friends, for brunch. The restaurant has a great view, paid parking is nearby if spaces are not available, and the service is very good. We had Eggs Benedict and Ham & Hash; see pictures below; they were excellent. While it is on the pricey side, the Waterfront Kitchen is one of those... More

Entree portion sizes for all 9 meals at our table were ridiculously small and the cost high. If hungry, the small portions definitely require an appetizer and desert. Food quality was good. Our waiter, Mathew, did a good job. Good wine list by the bottle but not the quality by glass. Bathroom needed cleaning.

We arrived on Sunday morning with reservations for a party of eight. We were promptly seated but that was where the promptness ended. It took about twenty minutes to get coffee and Bloody Marys but water was delivered pretty fast. We then waited about another ten minutes for our food order to be taken. The wait was then on !!...

Went to try this with some co-workers. The decor is nice and, had the weather been good, we probably would have enjoyed eating outside. The service was very slow - waitress was polite and attentive, but the food took forever to come out. It was good, but very poor value - extremely small portions. Would have been small for an...

Located on the waterfront, as its namesake suggests, this trendy and elegantly appointed restaurant is a terrific choice for brunch. The vaulted post-and-beam interior is light and airy, with windows facing the harbor. In warmer weather, there is outdoor seating. The service is excellent; wait staff maintain an expert balance of personality and professionalism, and see to every need. The... More
