Reviewed December 14, 2012

A nice place to relax and have a leisurely dining experience in downtown Catonsville followed by a stroll through the many quaint shops on Frederick Avenue. Service and food were spot on.

“Thank you Jay Martin!!”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

Stopped by for dinner on our travels from NJ to DC based on another recommendation. We pulled in at 6:45 on a Friday night expected to go in, find an hour wait and have to hunt for an Applebee's or Chili's (UGH!) Walked in the front door of a busy restaurant, greeted by a lovely girl who seated my party of 5 immediately. Food was fresh and delicious ~ we brought our own wine so it obviously was also to our liking! The Crab avocado BLT appetizer was to die for!! even my daughter who doesn't like fish enjoyed some of my halibut ~ nothing but good things to say ~ next time we are in the area will most certainly stop by.

“Top-notch”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

Wonderful seafood dining in Baltimore County. Appetizers and entrees are very, very good and prices are reasonable. Only drawback is no liquor license but you're welcome to bring your own.

“Just what Catonsville needed”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

A nicer seafood restaurant with great chefs and great service. You can select whatever type of fish, your choice of cooking method (the pistachio crumble is a favorite) and type of sauce. They cater to special diet needs (low salt, low fat, etc)

“Great place to eat, can be pricey”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

I went to this restaurant a week ago with a friend and was not disappointed. I was very happy with the service and food but I don't discount other people's bad experiences.

As an appetizer we had the "Proscuitto Wrapped Diver Scallops" and the "Crispy Crab Cigars". While the proscuitto seemed a little hard (not like bacon) perhaps that's normal. Both were very tasty. I had a "Shrimp Salad Sandwich" which was enjoyable but not memorable.

Here is a quick summary:

PROS
Chic interior
No loud kids, just us adults ;-)
Everything including the menu is online at http://www.catonsvillegourmet.com


CONS
Can be loud when busy
Parking lot in back fills up quickly when busy. There is parking by the library.
We arrived on a weekey at 6pm and it was empty. By 7pm it was packed.
BYOB ($5).
Priciness is subjective but when I look at the menu it feels like it costs more than usual.
No reservations

Would I recommend it? Yes, but for the more exotic fare. The regular items don't seem that special a daily lunch there could eat into your budget.
