“First time in Balti, good experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2013

We were on our way from DC to NJ and stopped in Baltimore for dinner. Found these reviews first, and we were very happy with the food and service. Had the Burger, baked mac n cheese, catfish and grits, and salmon salad. All were done perfectly. The service was very attentive, almost to a fault. We got back on the road, happy as can be since we are foodies!

“unique”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2013

This restaurant would be a good choice if you are seeking a unique dining menu. The serving staff was excellent. The menu is geared toward the gourmet pallet and not the general Baltimore resident. The cheese appetizer was extremely scant. We purchased a cheese/sausage sampler of 3 selections, and it was bearly enough to taste when we divided it. We selected the safe 'down home' entree's- pulled pork and fried chicken and they were very tasty.

“Great Farm to Table Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

I had dinner with my book club here recently and it was a great dining experience. The bartender was knowledgeable about the wines on the list and suggested a great bottle for us to share. The waiter was friendly and gave great descriptions of the entrees. The crunchy brie with peach chutney and mint-pea soup were excellent starters. The entrees were fabulous and full of fresh ingredients. The peanut butter-bacon dessert was a little underwhelming, but the coconut cream pie was awesome. The only downfall is there is no on street parking as everything requires a permit. There is valet parking though. I would definitely dine here again.

“An Excellent Restaurant on Federal Hill”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2013

I had dinner at this restaurant last night. Dinner was excellent - food, service and atmosphere. All of the dishes were fresh and original - rabbit ravioli, antelope carpaccio, and lamb shortribs. The real surprise dish was a "mushroom toast". Awesome. Really fresh, inventive cuisine served by knowledgeable and caring staff. We were not rushed and topped off the meal with bacon ice cream. Delish. I couldn't agree more with the other reviews here. A real treasure worth the trip to Federal Hill.

“Superior Service and Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2013

I cannot express how much I love Bluegrass. I visit here when I can and am a local to Federal Hill/South Baltimore. Dined in last night and the manager was so gracious and generous to us. Food is beyond great, but it's the superior customer service that always brings me back here. I would recommend this to locals and visitors alike to visit. There is valet as well for those worried about parking in the area.
