First time at the Waterfront Kitchen was a very cold night in January 2017. When our Uber dropped us off, we weren't sure if we were at the right spot because of how poorly lit the outside of the restaurant appeared. Inside, the restaurant was warm and cozy with a hip feel. We ordered flights of wine and appetizers consisting... More

Waterfront Kitchen is a tasty American restaurant. Disclaimer: I went on New Year's Eve and so only had a special prix fixe menu to choose from. I thought the food was solidly good, though a bit basic/forgettable- which I can assume is the result of the prix fixe offerings. The prix fixe consisted of soup or salad (I opted for... More

Hip décor, sporting lots of wood with a concrete floor and hammered copper colored metal tabletops, sets the scene. Attractive spotlighting, in keeping with tasteful modern industrial chic look, provides a warm glow. Through the large windows, you see a beautiful working harbor with the famous Under Armor and Domino Sugar signs in the background. Friendly, engaged blue jeans and... More

Everything was wonderful--food, service, location, view, decor. Not to be missed! Love the farm-to-table concept.

Great area in Baltimore, water view. Food was just ok, nothing special. The restaurant was highly recommended so came away a little disappointed.

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
