    We regularly eat here but no more. Both my husband and I had the veal milanese that was great but I started with the house salad that was mostly dressing making me wonder if there was a problem with the other ingredients that Liberatores was trying to hide by drenching the salad in dressing. The service was horrendous. Our waiter wanted us in and out. No sooner did we order than our salads came and as soon as we finished our plates were cleared so our main courses could be served. I got the distinct feeling that the restaurant didn't want us to linger over the food but wanted us out out out. experience. If I'd wanted fast food, I would've gone to a fast food restaurant and not have paid exorbitant prices for a fast food meal.

    Our dinner was great as usual. I like my drink a certain way and it came out perfect! Our waiter was OK but not outstanding. Our only disappointment was we tole the hostess that it was our friends birthday and they did nothing for them. Our friends didn't know we had tole them so at least they were not disappointed.

    We just had my mother's 75th birthday dinner here for 10 people. My mother and I are both transplants to Baltimore, and my New York-Italian family members are pretty picky about food. My brother arrived grumpy as usual saying he wasn't in the mood for Italian, but he had the shrimp scampi and actually commented that it was very good. I enjoyed my "endless summer salad." Everyone else seemed satisfied with their meals. The presentation was very nice as well. We brought a cake, and our server not only presented it with the candles, but also had it sliced and presented on plates with a chocolate drizzle underneath each slice. Such a nice extra touch I wasn't expecting. I think this will be our go-to place for family events from now on.

    I made reservations for an eight person birthday dinner plus infant requiring high chair at the last minute through Open Table based on reviews I had seen on Liberatore's on line. We were not disappointed!! Flowers were delivered and on the table when we arrived. The service was excellent, the wine was excellent, the food was outstanding. The restaurant is in the first floor of an office building next to a parking lot, but we did not need a view as everything delicious was happening inside and we loved it. Need I say more?

    My husband was entertaining a client from out of state and I was privileged to join them! The food was wonderful, our server could not have been more attentive and the ambience was very nice. My husband suggested a more casual dining environment, but I felt this was a special occasion and since it was raining we could not sit outside. I am looking forward to our next visit!

    The main restaurant was closed for a private party, so we sat in the Liquid Libs part. I had received a call earlier in the day to ask if that was okay. It is a less formal restaurant, but you can order from the menu from the main restaurant or order from Libs menu. We chose the main menu. Our party of 3 was pleased with their meals. Two had the shrimp scampi and I had the shrimp and veal marsala. All dishes were very good and had a nice flavor. The service was good and the atmosphere was very inviting. We would go back.

    First, not really sure what happened to ocurr for this dining experience to be a complete 360 from our recent August visit. Did the recipes change or was the kitchen staff replaced? Maybe they should have spent more time preparing the meals rather then standing outside the building. We shared a crab dip appetizer that literally had a few shreds of crabmeat. We pointed it out to our server who agreed, apologized and had it remade. Next, the Book Maker salad that was water soaked, limp and a much smaller portion than normal. The entree their signature dish Chicken Liberatore's which was amazing only a month ago was disappointingly chewy and bland. We will dine here again because our initial experience was great. Chalk it up to a bad night!

    My sister and I took our parents here for lunch when they visited the Baltimore area. It's in a sort of industrial/business area so doesn't look like much from the outside, but the interior is spacious, bright and comfortable. I would imagine this place is busier during the week, but there were only a few parties dining for a late Saturday lunch making for a quiet and relaxed dining experience. Our server was friendly and professional and went out of his way to meet our needs. The menu had a nice variety and the food was delicious. Crab soup is a must! They had a number of somewhat standard Italian dishes, but they were all prepared with an unexpected twist. We've added Liberatore's to our list!

    This must have been an off-night, because we usually have a great dining experience at Liberatore's. We had to send our mojitos back They were too tart and sour. We asked the waiter to bring a little more simple syrup to sweeten the drinks. He told us the bar does not have simple syrup. So how can they make a good mojito? We then substituted gin and tonic. That was also bitter...tasted like the tonic was bad. At that point, we did not want to complain again, so just left the drinks. Salad was like a soup...too much dressing. Our waiter was overwhelmed with too many tables...forgot part of our order. Coffee was cold...had to be exchanged. Our entrees were the best part of the meal.

    From entering the restaurant to the last bite of dessert, our meal and the service were perfect ! Our waitress was pleasant and could not have been more accommodating. The bread was warm and the olive oil tasty. My rigatoni in Vodka sauce was prepared as if I was in Italy. The Caesar salad was spot on and the double chocolate cake was dense but moist and tasty. The prices were very reasonable. I would return in a minute and would recommend this dining experiencecto friends and family!

    Had to wait for my friend so I took a seat at the bar. I had a sour apple martini--very good! The crab dip appetizer was creamy and crabby (if that's a word). Everything was delicious. From the Ceasar salad to the shrimp scampi to the coconut cake. We left there and went across the hall to Liquid Libs. I had the best orange creamcicle drink ever!! The entire night was wonderful and i will definitely be going back!

    I took my lady here for dinner and she loved it. her dish title I don't remember the name but she mentioned it was the best. it consisted of pasta, shrimp, and lobster. I scored major points for picking the location off the main road in a quiet location in timonium. we both recommend this location to others. and magoobys joke house is next door where we went next to laugh off a few calories. both are great spots!

    We had lunch at Liberatore's last weekend and thoroughly enjoyed it. I had the crab ravioli, and others were pleased with the cajun chicken salad, the veal piccata (even though it's not on the menu), and the New York strip steak sandwich. It was quiet, not very crowded, and the service was a little slower than desired, but still acceptable. I expect we will dine there again.

    Liberatore's was good not great for Mother's Day dinner. I will come back, but it does not live up to the hype of being such a terrific suburban Italian restaurant. Having said that, we enjoyed our dinners (people had soup, salad, pastas, veal and chicken), and indeed, the meals were prepared and presented nicely.
