Went for breakfast, very disappointing. Sat down and waited over 5 minutes for someone to acknowledge us with a "Be right with you". Continued waiting for another 4 or 5 minutes after that, watched another table that came in after us get drinks and have their order taken.

Finally had our order taken, got our drinks and food. The French toast was soggy and mushy. Finished the meal, put the plates to the sides and waited. After 10 minutes of waiting, I started waving my credit card in the air to be noticed. Most of the French toast was left on the plate, yet the server didn't even bother to ask if anything was wrong with it when she cleared the plates.

Casual South American dining with a little twist to the menu selections. Friendly and efficient service. Very convenient to the inner Harbor hotels. We would be happy to return.

Enough said! Though there are quesadillas etc. on the menu, there are also hamburgers, seafood and a good variety of entrees - extremely good and the service was VERY welcoming and friendly.

We went to Santiago's because it's near the hotel and looked good. Enjoyed a wonderful and huge paella with mussels, chicken, shrimp, sausage, several vegetables and tons of flavor! Friendly service and almost no waiting. It would be a great place to go in a group.
