My husband and I had dinner at the Waterfront Kitchen last night. The food was excellent as always. I had a beet salad followed by bronzini with roasted brussels sprouts and polenta. We sat outside, watching the boats go by - a beautiful fall evening. The heat lamps on the deck kept the temperature quite comfortable. The service was friendly... More

A vaguely Latino fusion seafood place tucked away on a nearly dead end street on the bay. The seafood: ceviche, oysters and clams on the half-shell, and creamy crab soup were outstanding and beautifully presented. We carried out a nice dessert given as a compliment because we had a plane to catch. Our young waitress was clearly proud of the... More

Perfect!!! We celebrated our 38th anniversary and it couldn't have gone any better. Great food and great location. Sitting along the boardwalk enjoying the ambiance and food with my wife was priceless.

My wife and I met two of our cousins at the restaurnat for a leisurely Sunday Lunch/brunch. Overall it was a wonderful experience. 1. We sat outside with a wonderful of the Baltimore Harbor. 2. The waiter was very attentive without hovering. He would check in periodically to see if we were ready to order. We were catching up and... More

I ate at the Waterfront Kitchen with a group of 18 persons, seated at tables put together to form one long table. At 6:30 PM, I was surprised to find the restaurant deserted except for one other small table, and 2 or 3 tables occupied outside. I was pleasantly surprised at the efficiency of the staff in taking our orders... More

We went to this restaurant with our friends based on lots of good reviews. We were all disappointed. To start, the dining room was empty and they chose to seat us with a view of the kitchen. Service was very slow. We ordered the cheese platter and it was served with some broken crackers, 3 small pieces of cheese and... More

Recent visit here was for lunch, party of three, outside on the deck. We were seated upon entering and our server (Kate?) was very friendly and attentive. Food was well prepared and arrived quickly. The great city view was a major plus. I can see this being a major setback during very hot days. Prior reviewers have mentioned past issues... More

The Restaurant is in an educational center (a new building) on the harbor. It is a well appointed dining room with wonderful views of the harbor. There is... More

Such a mixed bag at the Waterfront Kitchen. I made a reservation the day before with someone who was somewhat rude on the phone. The rudeness apparently was matched by ineptitude, as the reservation was left on a note behind the bar and not entered in the system. Poor reservation management, but the good news is that I received a... More

The Waterfront Kitchen has been up and down. On our most recent visit things were definitely up. Our server was attentive and knowledgeable and the rest of the wait staff made sure our water was always full, etc. The menu is limited but every choice is well considered. Specialty drink that I tried was a ginger mule - delicious! The... More
