    After reading the menu I expected a fabulous fare. There were 2 of us. We ordered the COLD TRIO for two. [48.00] The shrimp/crab/TINY half piece of lobster were flavorless and served with cocktail sauce. Butter arrived after our plates have been removed. My guests entree was Salmon Oscar [42.00] The salmon was prepared nicely as was the sauce however it was surrounded by 2 large steamed hunks of broccoli. I ordered Jumbo shrimp grilled.[17.00] It arrived Cajun style and the shrimp were anything but jumbo. This was supposed to be a celebration evening and I was terribly disappointment. NOTE: it was quiet because there was only 1 other table on a Saturday night..

    My husband and I were staying at the Days Inn Inner Harbor, and were looking for something close by. After searching on Trip Advisor, I found Luna Del Sea. The service was exceptional! The wine list was great as was their choice of beer. My husband ordered a blackened seafood combo along with crab bisque. I tried his bisque and we both agreed that it's probably the best we've ever had. He enjoyed his entrée. I ordered the crabcakes and a salad. The crabcakes were good. The bread was really good. It was nice to be able to hear each other.

    Our second night at the Inner Harbor took us to Luna Del Sea. It's away from the Harbor proper, just a short walk down Pratt Street. There is outdoor dining, both on the sidewalk and in a lot between Luna and the building next to it. We chose the lot as it was a comfortable 72 degree evening. Luna has a much more "local" feel than the restaurants right on the Inner Harbor which puts it high on the list if you want to avoid the "touristy" establishments. Drinks and wine were not up to what we experienced at Phillips down the street the night before but definitely did not disappoint. Menu selections were extensive, and the King Seafood Trio, while pricey, offered the seafood lover quite a spread (hot cajun spice on the shrimp!). Menu on line.

    Had not eaten at Luna in about 5 years, and unfortunately chose to renew my acquaintance. Very poor and inattentive service; repeatedly had to ask for water and status of appetizers and then meals, which were severely delayed. Food was mediocre at best; pasta w/ shrimp dishes OK; blackened scallops undercooked and covered in very salty sauce that destroyed crispness of blackening. Rockfish portion was miniscule. Food was poor at any price, and particularly irritating at upscale prices charged ($30-$40).

    Friday night, Yankees game, tall ships in town, president in town. Need I say more. Very crowded when we arrived. Seated quickly, then waited for some time for service. Waiter, once he had time, was as quick as he could be and we did finish in time for the theater, 7:45. Restaurant empty by that time. Food was very good, though one clam dish had " three clams", one of which was empty shell, no clam. Location is very convenient to downtown, inner harbor, stadiums.

    Our dining experience was delightful. We had reservations to take my mother in law out for her 88th birthday. Since we went early we had the restaurant to ourselves! We were greeted as soon as we approached the restaurant. Everyone was very attentive and she was treated to a birthday cake. Very nice restaurant, food and staff!

    I ordered a crab cake which taste like it came from a processed can that lost it's shelf life. I sent that back for shrimp salad which was overcooked and loaded with mayo and celery seeds. Crab cake dip was okay if you don't mind more cream cheese than crab meat. Also, it's too dark during the lunch hour making their photo gallery wall less appealing. But I must say that the service was very good and the atmosphere is really nice.

    My wife had the Crab Cakes entree (she liked them a lot - of course she is an aficionada of crab cakes and has tried them at dozens of restaurants here in the MD/DC/VA area) and I had the Blackened Seafood Combo (which was awesome). We each enjoyed a glass of the House white wine (which was perfect for the meals we had selected) and we split the lemon cake for dessert (YUMMY). Our server, Sarah, was perfect - she left us alone for most of the meal, but was quick to refill water or anything else we needed. Overall a wonderful dinner.

    Hostess was smoking at stand outside...should have been hint. "Fresh shucked oysters" were dry and old. No cocktail or horseradish only ketchup. One oyster was so past it's time it smelled. Paid tab and left. Did not order dinner. Was never asked why didn't eat or if could substitute or take off bill. Waste of time and money. The oyster I did eat sent me to the bathroom the bulk of the night and next day.

    According to opentable, and other online sources, they open at 10:30am. We made reservations for 11am. At 11am, not a soul was around. No one contacted us to say the reservations needed to be moved, or to apologized for the confusion. We called and called... finally got ahold of someone who was irritated with us for asking. They finally opened at 11:30, long after our reservations were over, and after we had finished eating elsewhere.

    The host seated us immediately and made accommodations for our senior citizen in a wheelchair. Thank you! The restaurant was not very busy but we sat for a very long time before our server took drink orders. He returned with the drinks promptly but then vanished for an extended period. After finally taking our meal order, we again waited for quite sometime. By the time we were served our entrees, my meal was lukewarm. It tasted fine but had obviously sat for a while. With a menu as pricey as theirs I would have expected at least adequate service. We frequent many Baltimore Inner Harbor restaurants but will not be returning here.

    I selected this restaurant online through Open Table sight unseen for a staff reunion dinner at a conference because of its proximity to the convention center and hotel. From the moment we arrived we felt like family and despite the large group the waiter did a great job focusing on the individual tastes of each person in our party. The food was wonderful and the atmosphere was perfect for an intimate feel.

    Our server didn't seem like he really cared if we enjoyed our food. It took multiple times to get his attention to get a drink order. When asked about his preference of meals he acted as though it was a bother to answer those questions. Our tips was automatically included in the check. Lucky for him. If it was up to us he wouldn't have gotten anything. The food was pretty good but over priced. Overall, I'll never be back. Also, because of the service I had advised people who asked how my birthday dinner was, to never step foot in this restaurant.

    The food was good but due to poor service I would not recommend as a place to dine. I had to wait 20 minutes for a diet coke refill after I reminded the waitress twice. For dessert I ordered coffee and again waited almost twenty minutes as the waitress forgot aboutthe ccoffee. The place was busy but not packed so I cannot state she was overly busy to be so poor with her customers. I will state that I did witness the three other wait staff handle their tables well and seemed to be very attentive to their clients.

    The food was amazing. Classic Maryland seafood dishes as well as pasta and a great steak. I had a ribeye cooked perfectly with a single crab cake. The crab cake was the best I have had in many years. No shells and all jumbo lump meat. My wife had seafood pasta with Alfredo sauce. It was a large portion that was amazing even the next day. The service was attentive without being pushy. The manager was present and had a fun personality. We will definitely be back soon.

    This restaurant lost our reservation through Open Table. I had printed out a confirmation and showed it to them. They told us to wait while the set up the "Ballroom" for us. They sat us in a back room by ourselves with stacks of chairs and other stored items. Our food took an hour an a half to arrive. When it did, they did not have one of our entrees. We waited another 15 minutes for our missing entrée. Our waitress was very apologetic. They deducted 20% off of our bill for all of the issues. Still, we will not return.

    I stopped in for a quick lunch this past weekend. When my server, Pearson, asked me what I'd like to drink I asked if they made fresh lemonade?! She said "no, but I'll make it for you." She then proceeded to squeeze out lemons to make my drink. I was remarkably impressed as she could have simply said no and that'd be the end of it. I can very much appreciate good customer service! For lunch I had the chicken salad sandwich which was good but not great. Price was reasonable for what I received. Bottom line I'd return to try other things on the menu.

    We choose Luna Del Sea for a business dinner before an Orioles game. Our waiter was knowledgeable, helpful and accommodating. We had 1 in the party who did not eat seafood and she offered her the ability to create the pasta meal of her choice. We had a several appetizers and they were arranged beautifully on a platter. Our entrees were all great. I had the crab cake, scallops and shrimp and was very pleased. It was a perfect start to our night. Thank you Luna Del Sea!

    I made a reservation a month ahead since it was Sat evening on the night of before the Baltimore Grandprix. To my surprise the place was pretty much empty at 7:30pm. I ordered a $60 bottle of wine. After 30 min wait, the bottle came already opened in the kitchen. I ordered a seafood pasta. The taste was so plain and pasta overcooked, spagetti I buy together with my take out pizza at my local pizza shop was better. Total price of $230 incluidng tip (2 adults and 2 kids) was ridiculous. Next day I tried to look for a different place, but I had a very difficult time finding any reasonable restaurant in Baltimore.

    The food was ok. We ordered two different dishes but based on the seasoning they put on top of everything we couldn't taste a real difference. Even with that we would've been ok but the service was even worse! Never have I had a server tell me no so many times during a visit. He was rude, he disappeared often, bad mouthed the other server for answering our questions during his long disappearance and an nonchalant attitude all around. We are NEVER going back here.

    The location and its initial look and feel had me to believe that I was in for a great experience. Waiting for my dinner companion, I went to the bar. The bartender had to look up my request (which I thought was a pretty standard drink). His first experiment failed. After his second attempt, it was something I could live with. The service was fair at best. The server had no personality or interest (at least as it appeared). He came to the table as I was finishing up and after touching my plate, asked if I were done. The food itself was OK but the portions in relationship to the price was off in my opinion.
