    Dined on 8/1/2014
    Apropoe was terrible starting with our child waiter serving us the wrong wine in glasses thicker than airplane windows who proceeded to ask us every 3 minutes if we were ready to order (even before bringing our wine or telling us of any specials). There was actually a plastic container labeled "nasal drip" filled with sugar on the counter walking to our table. Gross! We ended up losing our appetite from the waiter, wine and vibe and left our unfinished wine...ended up having the meal of our lives at the Charleston just two blocks away.

    The ambiance and decor are amazing. And our server Jesus was a gem. I enjoyed the brunch buffet, though I wish there had been pancakes or waffles. That being said, there were very very few options for the two vegan members of our party. The meal that was specially prepared for them--their only option--was so-so and pretty pricey. There should be more vegetarian/vegan options as part of the brunch buffet spread.

    My group was very disappointed that the restaurant no longer offered Sunday brunch with unlimited mimosas; there is simply a buffet with an additional cost for EACH mimosa. I will be looking for another Sunday brunch spot.

    We had guests from out of town staying at the Marriott Waterfront in from Florida for our son to propose to their daughter. This dinner was a meet and greet for the parents. It was casual enough and special enough for the first meeting of the parents. We enjoyed the food and the water view from the dining room. Would go there again.

    The Marriott has done a great job updating this restaurant/bar space. The menu is full of tempting options and we enjoyed our meal. In early April they still seem to be ironing out some kinks but it is worth a visit. The pork shank was delightful, big enough to share. We also liked the roasted beet salad. Congratulations on a great facelift.

    The food was alright, but I thought it was overpriced for the quality. Since I was staying at the hotel and it was rather chilly outside, it was convenient, but I don't think I would go out of my way to eat here for dinner. Their brunch, though, was pretty good, but still a bit overpriced.

    So this is in a non-luxury hotel but I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. When I walked in I did not expect to enjoy my meal, and I absolutely did! The service was great, the food was great... but I had trouble shaking the image of people eating continental breakfasts in the same space earlier in the day. I didn't mind though... the service made up for it.

    Not a great experience, but not a terrible one either. Went for brunch and had a nice time - food was great, but some of the fruit was past its prime. Buffet selection was impressive. Hostess cancelled our reservation instead of marking it seated, creating a situation where I needed to ensure my OpenTable account was credited points properly, but all was fixed promptly by the OpenTable staff. Experience was nice, but it's not a "must see" restaurant.

    Dined on 8/3/2008
    As we walked into Grille 700 we noticed that it was quite empty. We did not take that as a bad sign and decided to sit down. The waiter was very friendly, however, after waiting 30minutes for our appetizer to arrive we became frustrated. When the appetizers did arrive (it was restaurant week) the soup has a thick film overtop as if it has been sitting for a while. Once I found the manager to discuss our lack of service it then took him another five minutes to go "see what was the deal." By the time he came back we packed up our bags and left enough money for our drinks. We will NEVER go back.

    We went to Grill 700 for pre-concert dinner during the Baltimore Restaurant Week. Pre-fix menue selections were very decent. food was very good, and service was quick and personable. As we went before concert, I had to leave my doggy bag at the restaurant (could bear to part with the huge and very good crabcake) and then retrieve it around 11 pm. My box was lables, refrigerated and waiting for me when I cam back and staff was very nice and accomodating. My only complain is parking costs: it is $8 for the restaurant patrons but the time limit is only 3 hours... We were 1 hour over the limit and were charged full night price, $24... Kind of steep price, even for downtown parking...

    Grille 700 was OK, but not one of my favorites. With all the other restaurants in the area, I would probably make this a luncheon stop. I must admit you get plenty to eat. And if you have the opportunity to sit by a window (as we did) the scenery is really nice.

    You never know what to expect with a Hotel Restaurant. Grill 700 was seriously excellent. The food was delicious. I ordered the filet. It was grilled perfectly and extremely tender. My friend ordered Crab Cakes. They were two baseball sized all lump cakes and they were delicious! Loved the corn and crab chowder. Our waiter was prompt and friendly. The chef brought our dinners to us. The maitre'd came over to check on us and was very gracious. I can't say enought about it. AND we live in Baltimore and weren't staying at the hotel, we just chose to dine there and are so happy we did!

    I have dined here before and the food is good, nothing outstanding. Our server was attentive to our party of five. My problem on this particular evening was the lack of attention to detail in properly recording my open table reservation. It was recorded as a "no show" and of course I had to do the extra work to assure it was properly recorded as "honored". Other than this issue, I would probably dine here again if I could not secure a reservation elsewhere on a Saturday night, as was the case with this particular reservation.
