  • Disappointing & would not go back

    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!

    This was our second trip to Fleet Street Kitchen. Our first attempt was good, but we were a tiny bit underwhelmed and wanted to give it another try. I'm glad we did. The food and service were both top notch. My only regret was not trying out the McNulty cocktail. Looking forward to our 3rd visit.

    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.

    My husband and I chose Fleet Street Kitchen for our anniversary dinner. From the moment we walked in the door, the service was outstanding. The host, our server, even the gal filling our bread plates and water glasses- superb service. The food was very good. If you love meat, make sure to try the charcuterie. The portions were generous but not overwhelming. I definitely recommend.

    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.

    My husband and I dine out frequently, and rarely find a truly fabulous restaurant. But this is one of them. From appetizers, to main courses, to dessert - we would rate each one a 10, on a 1 to 10 scale. In addition we enjoyed a wonderful and unusual bottle of Barbaresco. Finally the service was delightful - prompt, helpful, and courteous. Would make another trip to Baltimore just to have dinner here.

    We had a party of 6 for restaurant week. This was our third visit to Fleet Street Kitchen. We thoroughly enjoyed all three visits. The food was local, fresh, and perfectly prepared. The Rockfish was flaky and crispy on the outside and not over cooked, the sirloin was phenomenal, our only complaint was our pork chops was slightly dry. The wait staff was professional and the valet parking outside ($6) was very convenient! Another small suggestion is to not have the table for 6 so close to the walkway. Perhaps this is the only space they have for a table for 6, but you do feel a little like you are sitting halfway in a hallway. Overall, we highly recommend Fleet Street, you will not be disappointed!

    Maybe it was an off night but Valet is the worst. You park your car and go and get your ticket. The Valet guy stays at his station. Very Odd. Now for the rest of the evening. Fleet Street is good, not great. The Cunningham farm ingredients are overrated. I have been to Cunninghams and now Fleet Street and they are not memorable. There are better restaurants in the surrounding area. If you are looking for bland food and most of our meals were overcooked (just a bit) go to Fleet Street. Stay away from the short ribs. Mostly fat ( same at Cunningham's). I do go out a lot to dinner in Baltimore and this was not that great but what do I know?

    Highly recommend the Salmon for course one. Other guests at the table had the chicken and ratatouille soup. The chicken reminded me of nuggets from McDonald. The soup was good; chilled with a pinch of spice. Highly recommend the Rockfish or Steak for the second course. Both were cooked to perfection. Highly recommend the blueberry dessert. You are given a fair amount of blueberries and ice cream is included 😋😋😋😋. Lastly, I recommend you include the wine pairing with your meal. Enjoy 😃

    I had the squash salad, pork loin and blueberry dessert from the r.w. menu. I was really impressed with the attention to detail when it came to sauces and garnishes. They paired well with the main ingredient to create balanced dishes. Everything was seasoned well. The baby onion garnishes on the steak were memorable. The cooking was fairly light and I left the dinner feeling good. The wine pairings were excellent as well. Service was quick and without being intrusive.

Both our main courses were cooked perfectly. The chefs palate was on par with a five star restaurant. AWESOME! My only complaint is that the $40 bottle of wine was grossly overpriced for the quality.

    We came in to try the restaurant week menu. The pork was WAY overdone (they made us a new one, which was still overdone, but edible). The fish was also a bit overcooked, but the rest of the dish was delicious (the clam chowder jus was awesome)! The smoked salmon was also excellent. Holly was great behind the bar - professional, yet friendly. I find the wine list here has quite a few "trophy" bottles, but lacks a middle-range (~$60-120) if you just want a nice wine without going for broke on say, a Tuesday that isn't necessarily a special occasion. I've had great food here before (and our starters/desserts were good), so I'm assuming restaurant week just made for a slip-up or two.

    My wife and I went here for restaurant week and were delighted with how our dining experience went. Our server was unparalleled; super-friendly and extremely helpful in describing food items/making recommendations. We absolutely loved every one of our dishes. I got the chilled ratatouille and it is honestly one of my favorite small dishes of all time now. The chicken barbecue skewers were also excellent. For our main dishes, we got the crispy rockfish and the steak, both of which were seasoned and cooked to perfection! As it was my birthday, they gave me a complimentary flourless chocolate cake that was actually better than the two desserts we ordered (upside down blueberry cake with sweet corn ice cream and fromage blanc cheesecake).
