“Slim menu, but great place to eat!”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

We once again had another nice night at Sascha's. The food is never disappointing and if you are into art decor and dim lighting, this is your place. It's a very modern-esque trendy bar/restaurant quite close to the inner harbor. The menu variety isn't plentiful but it doesn't need to be. There is a choice for everyone and each night they have dinner specials. Their food is pretty good and the bartender makes good cocktails. All in all it's a recommended place.

“Great Happy Hour Spot where you can actually hear your friend/date”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

Happy hour menu options are fantastic, which means you can devote some money to fab cocktails or wine and enjoy happily.
There's a bar plus intimate tables too. Large, nicely lit by christmas lights. Good art on the walls. Chill ambiance that feels exclusive without any pretenstion. Don't recommend going here during restaurant week.. but great for happy hour or after an evening concert. Wonderful spread of appetizers too, so you needn't lay out for a full meal.

“Great Lunch Spot”
Reviewed July 18, 2012

I really liked this spot! It was quick and delicious. I really loved the custom salad they created for my friend and I. We also shared the crab cake sliders...also delicious. I thought the pricing was right on par and the service was also very good.

“Best Lunch Downtown”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

Since I worked only a block away from Sascha's, it was only natural to initially drop by to sample the restaurant which had grown from a catering business that went ballistic. The restaurant is just as good with a real difference in styles between daytime and evening dining.

During the day, Sascha's serves cafeteria-style from a long curving buffet that offers fabulous sandwiches made from a lot of homemade ingredients (like an incredible spicy shrimp salad or a chicken salad with grapes and almonds) and even a daily list of paninis that are always inventive and juicy! One day there might be a Cuban-style panini complete with pickle inside, another day it could be a reuben or another day Danish ham with wonderful cheese and mustard, all of them on great bread!

There are the chopped salads with a plethora of choices for your own ingredients - you get to choose a meat and several other elements as well, as your own kind of dressing. It all goes into a large bowl where it is tossed and then dumped on a huge cutting board where a big curved knife chops it into bites of mixed goodness and delivers it into a large ceramic bowl to your table.

In addition, there is always a hot main lunch course as well where you can choose your own side dishes - this can vary from a curry to chicken and dumplings to a stew, or maybe an Asian dish or a chili. There is no end to the imagination of Sascha Wollhandler and her husband Steve who are often there to help with serving, making, anything that needs doing. And friendliness? Through the roof! The clientele is very eclectic with a lot of tourists from the art museum across the street and musicians from the conservatory a half block away. Always an interesting conversation on which to eavesdrop!!

In the evenings, Sacha's becomes a full service restaurant with flowers on the tables, an attentive wait staff and a menu that features the same variety as the daytime offerings, but of course with many more full entrees and small plates. You can go crazy with an Indian appetizer, an Italian salad an an Asian entree!!! The food is very well prepared under Sascha's constant supervision and diverse palate.

I have never walked out disappointed, whether it was a pre-concert dinner or a lunch with colleagues or clients. One of the bright stars in the firmament of Baltimore's best restaurants!!

“Nice lunch in a gorgeous space”
Reviewed April 6, 2012

I had a great lunch here on 4/2/12: the Angus sliders with fries, pickle and cole slaw. The sliders were done quite rare (they didn't ask me how I wanted them) but they were delicious, and surprisingly not that expensive given the high-quality beef. I can't really comment on the service, as it's more or less cafeteria-style for lunch. Everyone seemed friendly enough, though. The restaurant is beautiful inside and out, and is a lovely place to chill for a bit with some food and drink.
