“Good, not great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2013

We had to walk through a gaggle of smokers to get to the front door. The music from the bar was very loud. The bread with dipping oil was wonderful! The chicken marsala was tough. I had a couple pieces I had to spit back out because they were unchewable. My dining partners were unenthused about the chicken parm as well.

“Ugly wine policy”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2013

Maryland has a law that allows customers to bring their own wine, and the restaurants charge fee for uncorking the wine. Timpano's manager announced that the restaurant does not allow customers to bring their own wine, and they do not have a piece of paper to proof that this is a written policy.
If you plan to have a nice dinner with wine, their wine list is very poorly chosen and expensive... So much for having dancing on Fridays, they charge outrageous prices for drinks!

“Great Martinis & Bar Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Timpano's has always had great Martini's. My favorite is Tanqueray, slighty dirty, up with Blu Cheese Olives (hand stuffed). The mussels are a must have as well.

“BANG! FOUND YA!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2013

Hey its live music on particular nights. Jazz. Yes upscale and still living the golden age. Classy. pricy but for a reason. Does it keep the rip-raff out? not if I can scrounge up some money too. The wait staff is something out of Washington's beautiful. Best Martini around. Steaks are done right. Not from Australia. Get the mussels too. Hit this hot spot every night I can treat myself.
