    Celebrating our 25th Anniversary, upon arrival, the hostess and waiter wished us a happy 25th and treated us to a complimentary glass of sparkling rose. For starters, we shared the brussels sprouts, seared pork belly and pumpkin soup, all of which were wonderful (pork belly was our favorite). Our entrees were Chestnut Stuffed Chicken Roulade and Seared Tilefish. Once again, both were not only delicious but presented beautifully. We finished off our evening splitting the Frozen Pumpkin Mousse - wow! I almost forgot - the breads, sour dough and multi-grain, are made fresh daily and were to die for. Many thanks to the staff at Fleet Street Kitchen for making our silver anniversary a memorable one! We will definitely be back!

    We dined on a Saturday evening. Service was very slow and the poor timing put a damper on the evening. There was just not a lot of staff around. We had to flag down a manager for water and bread. At that point, you think the waiter would pay closer attention but my water glass went empty again without ever being refilled. Maybe they were short staffed for the evening. Whatever the reason, you expect better service for the prices charged.

    We went here on a living social coupon. They took the regular menu away from us and gave us the 'special' limited menu - not a good sign since the coupon wasn't a huge savings. Apps and entrees were very good, wine flight and desserts were average. It could be comfortably casual-elegant but instead it has a stuffy vibe from trying too hard.

    After entering the restaurant it took 10 minutes for the server to visit out table and he said "Did you need something?" rather than introducing himself. It was also our anniversary and the waiter didn't even acknowledge that. The food was decent, but not worth the money.

    We arrived a few minutes early and were asked to wait in the bar until our table was ready. We ordered a bottle of wine from an extensive list but wine only came about 15 minutes after we ordered and were ready to go to the table. Everyone was friendly, it just seemed disorganized. Once we were seated, our server took forever to show up to welcome us and then took a long time to return to take our orders. The food came out fairly quickly. We ordered 8 first and vegetable courses to share including scallops, pork belly, eggplant, and linguine. The food was OK but certainly not worth the price. Tomatoes were supposed to be in the linguine but there was only one cherry tomato in the dish. Dessert unspectacular too. We don't plan to return

    A friend from Atlanta was visiting this weekend. We are both foodies so I was pleased to give him an eating tour of our fine city. Fleet was our Saturday night selection and delivered beyond expectations again. Brussel Sprouts are simply amazing and the Halibut entree was superb. I am not sure how Chef does that to carrots but I want to eat them every day. Thankfully, you are close by. Service is always a pleasure to experience. I feel more than welcome, I feel like a guest celebrity. Literally everyone made my company feel like they were a visiting dignitary and I can't thank you enough.

    The menu is the star at Fleet Street Kitchen. Pork belly with maple glaze, chestnut-stuffed chicken with brussel sprouts, hand-cut fettuccine with garlic cream... all of it. Delicious. Cocktails were just as pleasant. Our server, on the other hand, paid us little mind and forgot my coffee (a must for me with dessert). Regardless of service, though, I'd come back for the food any time.

    Fleet Street Kitchen tries to be Woodberry, but doesn't quite get there. It is really loud because of the open kitchen--looks like fine dining; feels like you are eating in the kitchen. The salad was great, the eggplant was overcooked and dry, and the bread was cold. The best part of the meal was actually the miniature butternut squash filled cream puffs.

    We found a KEEPER. The staff, the service and the food were top drawer. The service in particular was among the best we have received in our travels. We loved the dining room so elegant but not off putting. The food, however, was the star. We could not fault anything in our selections. One of the things we liked the best was every plate gave the name of the place the selection came from, truly farm to table. Love it. I had tile fish from my home area, it was the best ever. We all liked the hand cut linguine with a roasted mushroom cream sauce, we were practically licking the plate. The other thing we liked was the attention to detail, free rosé upon sitting along with an amuse bouche, just so nice. All in all, we loved it.

    My husband and I had a fabulous time here. We went out on our "monthly" date night and enjoyed every minute of it. It was a nice surprise considering the month before we had gone to a more pricier steak house at the National Harbor and it was absolutely horrible. This experience was worth every penny and I am glad they took the time to make us feel special. We got the Chef's Tasting and enjoyed a very fabulous 7 course meal. The dishes served to us were all a surprise, which made the experience even more fun. If you are looking to go out for a nice intimate date night with good food and service, I highly recommend the Fleet Street Kitchen.

    Booked through open table and even received confirmation call from restaurant day before asking if for special occasion which it was. Arrived at restaurant and young inexperienced hostesses attempted to seat us in casual pub style lower level (same price but zero ambiance) despite fact that upstairs was completely empty. Was ready to walk out when happened to speak to new manager who was FANTASTIC. He seated us at great table upstairs, gave us complimentary champagne for our trouble, and stopped by several times during evening to check on us. Food though was ok but not great: fois gras raw in middle, pork belly essentially cold slab of fat, charcuterie fatty cuts and either too bland or peppery, rib eye good. Wouldn't go back.

    I was so looking forward to trying FSK, and was terribly let down :( Bad from the start, the bartender was extremely snobby when I asked a simple question. The waitress had zero personality and would be gone for long stretches at a time even though the place was empty. When we ordered dinner we were told SORRY- we're out of the two things you wanted (pork belly and short ribs, small plates)! Any items not available should be mentioned when you're seated! The other appetizer I ordered (oxtail and carrot soup) never even arrived at the table!! My companion and I split the 30$ "roasted pork" entree since they were out of what we wanted, and it was so boring, tasteless, and overpriced. We left hungry, and actually ate pizza when we got home.

    My husband and I went here for our wedding anniversary. We had a living social deal for 3 courses and then added the optional wine pairings. We were greeted with a complimentary glass of champagne and a card from the chef and manager wishing us a happy anniversary. Our server was fabulous and the food incredible. They also are part of a national campaign to end childhood hunger and if you donate $3 or more to the cause you receive a card for a complimentary glass of wine or appetizer on your next visit. From start to finish the meal and experience was perfection!

    So my two friends and I picked this as a place we would love to try out since it opened up, but due to crazy schedules we finally made it. So well worth the wait! Our server, Mikaele (sp?) was FANTASTIC. Hands down one of the best server's I have had in a long time. He gave great feedback to our questions regarding the menu and wine selections were were contemplating. The food was unbelievable. I started with the seared foie gras which had great flavor and texture and the pairing it with the caramelized onion was a nice blend. We all had fish dishes, my one friend and I both had the rockfish, my other friend had the tilefish. Both dishes were unique in flavors and presentation. Both though were huge hits at the table. Can't wait to go back!

    We had the vegetarian tasting menu. The first few dishes were phenomenal, and while the last ones were good, the flavors weren't as complex. The only real complaint we had was that some of the servers didn't tell us about the dish they were bringing us (it was a blind tasting) and ran off before we could ask, so we had to chase down another server to tell us about the ingredients. However, it is worth noting that our assigned server was knowledgeable and lovely.

    I was so looking forward to returning to this spot while in Baltimore. I have to say, I was disappointed this time. I had booked a table for 2 and my other person cancelend last minute. The host was fine and cheery, but my server definitely had an attitude. When I asked for a fresh glass of water because there was an after taste, he made a face and said "Really" as if I was nuts. I'm not, but if I was, not the right way to treat a customer who is about to drop a nice chunk of change. I had the grouper, which in general I will never order outside Fl, but assumed since FS is high quality, I'd chance it. It was ok. Skin was not crisp-tough, spinach was soggy, completely forgettable. What a shame. My first time was so wonderful.

    My wife and I had dinner at Fleet st for the second time and found the food very good. We enjoyed the short rib starter that was generous for a starter and very tasty. I had the mushroom stew and my wife had a very good chicken dish. The wines were less than stellar but probably because we didn't pick well or ask to change. We are eager to go back and try the 7 course vegetarian menu.

    Avoid the gimlet. Three members of our party ordered the featured "FSK Gimlet." Possibly the worst gimlet we have ever had. It was like a tiny pool of sugar water. Other than that, the meal was terriffic. One disappointment in the food department: even though it was only 8:15, the kitchen was out of the two apps we wanted--the foie gras and the pork bellies. Offsetting these minor disappointments: outstanding food, service and a vibrant ambience. Would recommend this restaurant and would dine there again.

    I was in Baltimore to visit to visit a very important client. We see this client at least once a quarter and usually have dinner the night before our meetings. we've pretty much tapped out the Inner Harbor restaurant scene. The client requested that we try Fleet Street Kitchen as we hadn't been there yet. We beat the dinner rush and had a great meal. The food was delicious, it was quiet and perfect for a good working dinner. The whole experience helped improve our visit. I recommend to anyone needing to take a client to a solid dinner, even when the client is a foodie or health nut.
