Diner Reviews
  • "Read a review and wanted to try it. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful. We soon discovered that we could barely hear one another and asked if we could sit at an outside table. Everyone was so kind; our waiter helped bring our food out, and the manager offered us free drinks and insisted on giving us free desserts. We felt this was amazing customer service. As for the food, the selections were great and dinners were delicious( especially the gazpacho)"

  • "We came to support a great local artist, Darla Luke, because she was showing her work. The food and drink were a bonus! All the soups were fresh and delicious, but the Gazpacho was outstanding. The sandwiches had terrific fresh baguettes, homemade chips and wonderful fillings; recommend the pork & chicken curry!!"

  • "Great food and service at By Degrees Cafe! Planning to return really soon! There were 7 of us in the group and we had a really nice experience at this restaurant! Each of us ordered the various salads that were offered and we loved them all! Also ordered the various sandwiches from Curried Chicken Salad sandwich to Grilled Cheese sandwich and we had the chocolate mousse and caramel bread pudding with salted caramel ice cream for dessert...everything was exceptionally delicious!!"

  • "We went to this restaurant on a Friday night and were underwhelmed from the minute we set foot in the door. It has a very cold, austere feel to it and was much smalle than we had expected. The menu was fine, but the beer choices were very limited. My husband ordered the Manhattan, which was one of their featured drinks, and said that it was just glorified orange juice. On a positive note, our food came in a timely fashion and the fish sandwich was delicious, as was the beef brisket. We won't be back, though, because it just felt like we were eating in a warehouse with tables."

  • "What a great find! Menu is deep and interesting. Food is presented beautifully and with a light touch. I got the feeling the salad greens were pulled out of the garden just before hitting the plate. Staff is pleasant and professional, welcoming and gracious. We lingered over the coffee and bread pudding, just quiet enough for conversation and people watching. The staff seem willing to do whatever it takes to make everything perfect for you. I was there for lunch, and will definitely return for dinner."

  • "I had the pan-roasted chicken, and it was really nice and tender. It's a very friendly and low-key atmosphere. The restaurant is close to where I live, so it's very convenient for us to pop in for lunch. Wish it were open on Sunday."

  • "Ideal place for lunch, easy parking directly on Central Avenue. A location that is close to Fells Point, Harbor East, and Little Italy. Our server was attentive and helpful; overall a delightful meal. The menu was suitable for all tastes, we really enjoyed our salads, perfectly dressed and our sandwiches were excellent, no room for dessert, maybe next time."
