Description: When you inherit a space as magical as the historic former Baltimore & Ohio Railroad headquarters, you've got to do it justice. We kept our building's most stunning architectural features intact while updating the space with contemporary design elements and nostalgic touches, like chairs and table lamps from original B&O dining cars. Our practices are distinctly 21st century, though, from selecting the best local produce at the farmer's market to serving cutting-edge craft cocktails to maintaining a steadfast commitment to sustainable business practices. If only train passengers from the early 1900s had it so good!

Dear califdr,

My apologies on your disappointing experience, it sounds like you enjoyed the food, I was hoping to get more information from you. We have been extremely busy lately with events and holiday parties, so we do highly recommend reservations especially on the weekends. I would love to hear from you, my email is david.friday@bandorestaurant.com

Thank you,

“I ate 4 out of 6 meals here, it was that good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2013

The B & O is a great example of a hotel having outstanding food, not just food that is convenient because its in the hotel. Highlights were the parsnip-ginger bisque, simply AMAZING! The brussel sprouts wonderful & crispy with bacon and the tastiest sauce with creme fraiche and mustard. The oven roasted chicken really hit the spot on a cold and rainy day. I will be back!

“The Bartender Rocks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2013

From entering the restaurant (we stayed at the adjacent Hotel Monaco and it was great) John? (bartender with cool tattoos) was a true professional and had the demeanor of a seasoned veteran. His knowledge and professionalism throughout our lunch experience was outstanding and his personality rocked. My kids said, "Daddy, he is nice"..and believe me, it was a truly compliment. Thanks for making our time there memorable. Oh yeah, the food was great also. The restaurant ordered a special oyster lunch upon request and the manager on duty was a true professional also. A must try is the Turkey Sanmy (ask for the spicy mayo to complement).

“Beautiful Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2013 via mobile

I picked B&O based on the decor/history and was not disappointed ! It was gorgeous .. And the food was good too. Goat cheese flatbread and my fiancé had the rib eye. Service was excellent - we had made a reservation but we got there early and sat immediately. Would definitely recommend !

“Nice restaurant, sketchy area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2013

This establishment was a nice place to stumble upon after a long day of traveling. It's atmosphere is modern and laid back with a nicely put together menu that offers a variety of creative dishes. The talent of the culinary staff was evident in the excellent preparation of the dishes we had. The staff was polite and attentive as well.
