We have been there about 6 times and every time we are terribly disappointed by the food. We live a few blocks away and really want to like this place. The menu changes constantly and the descriptions sound tasty but when the food comes out, the meat has been tough, edges of the flat bread are missing toppings, bland, cold, etc, etc....

After ordering a bottle of white wine, the waitress never showed up with a bottle cooler. We then had to ask for one....we are at a wine bar and this should be automatic like the one in fells point.

We now just go for drinks and sit at the bar. The bartender is usually very nice and sociable. I'm not sure who the owner is, but
there is usually an older guy with white hair at the bar. He seems nice and seems to be involved with the place but has open sores on his arms that at one point were bleeding.

Really hope this place gets its act together. Would love a new chef that can make better menu items including things more towards a wine bar.

We recently went here for brunch and were very disappointed. The service was poor and we waited almost an hour for the food. When it did come, the order was wrong, the bacon was cold, the waffle was not even average. the rest of the food was just ok. we had been here for dinner before, and that was a better experience, but would only rate that as "average"

Everyone is super friendly, great atmosphere, reasonable priced food and wine! Nikki was an awesome server and really made it fun for us. We wandered in one night after they stopped serving and they were more than happy to talk with us about special nights and hours for almost 20 mins. We were far from disappointed when we came in, we were seated quickly had a great Fried Green Tomato Appetizers and a great bottle of Cono Sur Riesling. Our dinners arrived shortly after and while my Tuna was a little too salty it paired well with the risotto and was cooked perfectly with great presentation. The steak was also ever so slightly overcooked, more medium then med rare but it sacrificed none of the flavor. I definitely will be back and highly recommend it!

We had a great dinner and great service. They had a wine special and we got a very nice Malbec for a good price. Our apps and dinners were very good. The calamari was very good. I got the tuna dinner and it was excellent. My daughter got the steak tartare and said she would get it again. My wife got the crab cakes and in Baltimore they better be good...and they were. We will be going back soon.

This wonderful restaurant just celebrated it's first anniversary In October of 2012, and it has never disappointed! We come here at least once a month, and the food is always tasty and the service consistently top notch. The chef varies the menu, but never sacrifices the favorites (whole lobster dinners, incredible beef, pork and lamb, and enough vegetarian offerings to keep everyone happy). It is kid friendly (coloring books etc to keep this little ones amused) but not to the point of disruption. Seems all the parents know how to keep them in line, ensuring the other diners are not aware of their presence. Prices are very reasonable, and the servings generous. Highly suggest you visit soon.
