the place is very nice - my girlfriend took me there for my birthday.
the salad was quite good, she only got the crab soup - she thought
it was good, but not spectacular- she didn't realize it was tomato not cream base.

I had the squash risotto - unlike the other person - I would only give
this a "good" - it need some salt or onions - had too much of a
allspice mix that isn't great unless you are eating it with poultry/beef.
I know they needed a to vegan entree - maybe cook in a little more veggie broth
or with some asian/soy/sugar combo - would be better and still vegan.

We had a free piece of pound cake - which was a little dry - maybe they weren't selling much during all the snow days. But the ice cream that came with it was quite
excellent. It is some gourmet brand - I forget the name.

The place is very cute - and it appears the meat/seafood dishes are much
better. They are trying to incorporate kitchen training for some people in
need of employment training - so their heart is definitely in the right place.

It is a personable place - its definitely worth checking out -
and for its ranking well-priced.

Went to the Dogwood Restaurant on the recommendation of the hotel concierge. We had excellent service and the food was fresh, hot and delicious. Very tasty bread too. We did not have dessert so can't comment on that. Nice atmosphere. Parking may be an issue sometimes. Neat neighborhood. Much better than the overpriced rip offs in the inner harbor.

Loved it the food was delicious, the service was classy, and the dessert was a nice treat. The food is fresh and the menu is unique. The flavors are wonderfully combined and the staff is well trained. This was a recommendation from a chef and when we went there I realized why they love it so much.

Good wine list. Decent service. High-quality food. Menu needs to be updated to reflect what will actually arrive at the table.
