Grille 700 at the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront
Great FoodThe atmosphere was quite comfortable, a family setting. The food was good and the service from the staff was great.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's DayThis was my first time at the Grille. I made reservations early, to avoid the Mother's Day rush. I was promptly seated and attended to. The food was not only excellent, but it came in a timely manner. I will recommend the grille to all my family and friends. I can't wait to return. I must add the service was impeccable. I was a little disappointed that only valet parking is validated, inspite of that, my family and I had a wonderful experience.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was excellent. WeThe food was excellent. We had the ribeye and scallop chef special. The prices were very reasonable for the location and amount of food. Our table overlooked the water so was a beautiful view as well. I would recommend it to everyone!4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMNotably great appetizers & serviceI can't wait for an excuse to go back to Grille 700. Two of us split the calamari appetizer (large portions, excellent flavor profile); squash, peanut, and arugula salad (simple and delicious flavors, great mix of textures); smoked pork flat bread (large and packed full of flavor); & the halibut entree with saffron clam sauce and cauliflower risotto (the halibut was cooked perfectly, the saffron sauce was a bit too salty even for this salt lover). We could not finish this huge meal, though we tried. We complemented this with a flight of 4 wines, all excellent recommendations from Greg, our waiter. The service was attentive, communicative, helpful, & even entertaining. The whole staff really worked as a team to make our dinner delightful.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMPricey. Weird environmentPricey. Weird environment - it was a super classy restaurant but there were plenty of people super dressed down - eating with their families.
My boyfriend and I each got the steak, which was fabulous. Still - cooked medium instead of medium rare. The bread had some sweet honey butter which was delicious, and the calamari also rocked. The waiters were weird at times - one spilled water and made a huge production of covering it. It would've been fine if he had given us some space.
Also, even though there were tons of seats open, the staff kept putting more people next to my boyfriend and I. The space is very open, and super quiet, so it was hard to have a private conversation with people so close to us. We could hear their every w4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a wonderful EasterWe had a wonderful Easter Brunch here yesterday. Everyone in my party was impressed with the selections. The only downside was that there was no fruit on the buffet. In the past, the Marriott has had bountiful displays of fresh berries. Yesterday, the only berries were strawberries in the mimosas, or some berries that were in the cheese wheels (which then had the chesse all over them). Service was outstanding, and we never wanted for a drink, or a refill. All-in-all, it was great!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThere was an initial problemThere was an initial problem with my Open Table reservation, as there was no indication regarding time of the special Easter brunch. My reservation was for 10:45. The restaurant called to confirm, and asked if I had wanted the brunch. They informed me that the brunch didn't start until noon, and they had no available reservations. They took my number, and called back within 10 minutes, as the manager accommodated us for a noon seating. We had a lovely brunch, and our only regret was that we couldn't manage to taste everything, due to so many wonderful offerings! We would definitely recommend this brunch to others.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMHighly RecommendedMy son and I ate at Grille 700 for Easter Brunch and it was great. The crab cakes were "fabulous". There was a nice variety of foods - and not all your ordinary buffet choices. We made it a point to each try something we'd never had before. The attention to every detail was wonderful.Our server was very attentive. We had a great view at the window overlooking the Inner Harbor. Couldn't have been better.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Easter Buffet is stupendous.The Easter Buffet is stupendous.
