“Excellent Food & Atmosphere”
Reviewed May 18, 2014 via mobile

My wife and I enjoyed a great dinner at Ouzo Bay. We started withe the saganaki, lamb meatballs, and village salad. All were very good. She had the tuna which was cooked to perfection. I had the red snapper which was light and tasty. Excellent wine choices too and our waitress Blanca brought us complimentary ouzo shots. They also offer valet parking for $8. I would have given them 5 stars except for one thing. The manager asked us after finishing our appetizers if we would mind moving tables because a big party was coming in. He offered us another appetizer but we already had two appetizers and were waiting for our entrees. We moved tables but noticed that a big party did not come in and another couple took our two top table. A credit for one of our appetizers should have been applied to our check in my opinion.

“A refreshing take on Greek”
Reviewed May 3, 2014

Ouzo Bay is located in the trendy Harbor East neighborhood which is a plus as this is great area in which to spend an evening out in Baltimore. The restaurant itself is contemporary in its design and decor while still maintaining some traditional characteristics you usually find in a Greek restaurant. The food was wonderful and service top notch. My wife and I felt that this was one of the better eating experiences we have had in recent memory. Definitely recommend Ouzo Bay.

“Offended by lack of service - hostess and manager”
Reviewed April 29, 2014

The food at Ouzo Bay was really good but not good enough for me to return there any time soon because the place lacks customer service and accommodation. Our waiter was great and friendly, but the hostess and manager need some work in the customer service department. We were given the worst table in the restaurant and we asked to be moved several times but the hostess had an excuse for every table we requested. There was an empty section in the middle of the restaurant where she could have moved us but she didn’t even look into that. We almost left the restaurant to go somewhere else. We had a party of five and they decided to sit us in the middle of the walkway where people from the kitchen walked by every 5 seconds. Also, the wait staff were moving tables and chairs above our heads and we were afraid we would get hit with one of them. We had to get out of the way several times and they even told us to duck numerous times (not what I would call fine dining). This went on for quite a while during dinner. We asked the hostess if she can move us to the other side of the restaurant where it was less crowded but she said the tables were reserved for "big" parties. But later on that night, we looked over at the "reserved" table she was referring to, and they also had a party of five. As we were leaving, we noticed a huge entourage walk in the restaurant with some football player and then we realized that the restaurant staff were moving tables and chairs for him, but they couldn’t even find a quieter table for the regular people. They were capable of moving tables and chairs if they wanted to, but they decided we weren't worth it. But that’s ok, there are plenty of other restaurants in Baltimore that would have moved us in an instant and that’s where I will be going from now on.

“Great food, great service.”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

Anyone that is local or visiting the Baltimore area has to try Ouzo Bay out. They have meat, fish, and vegetable options but their fish is the freshest around. You will not be disappointed.
