    We enjoyed the food. Our waitress was very nice but we had to wait quite a while for the food to come to our table. Thus if you have and want time for conversation this will work out. (not so if you are in a hurry). Windows were open and an occasional bus or loud car speeding by interrupting the conversation. One burger was not cooked as requested, no problem as it was immediately addressed and replaced to satisfaction. Likely I will return to this as I really liked the lamb burger. .

    We made a reservation for a group of 8 which was confirmed by Maisy's. We consequently had two other groups of 8 we knew that were dining there around the same time as there was an event in the city we were attending. Each group of 8 had confirmed reservations. When we arrived, the restaurant was full, and we were told by the host that there were no tables and he would see what he could do. Meanwhile, the two other groups that had reservations before us were all cramped at the bar waiting to sit 30 minutes past their reservation time. There were not enough seats at the bar for all to dine, and the host returned to say that he still could not seat us (or any other group) for at least 30-45 minutes. One group then left as did we.

    Don't go out of your way to eat here, but if you happen by, order pizza. The Saturday night we dined was severely understaffed with large party in downstairs dining room. One waiter was harried and took half an hour just to order.

    I should have known better to order alligator gumbo at a glorified neighborhood bar, but it was really quite poor. It tasted as if the chef completely forgot to season the gumbo, the portion was very small for a pricey dish, and overall it was disappointing. Nice waitstaff and very lively atmosphere since it was happy hour on a workday, but there are too many good choices for restaurants in Baltimore to go back here.

    We went on a quiet night just before Thanksgiving with our 10 month-old daughter and felt very welcomed by the waitress. The restaurant mood was neat and relaxed. The menu had many enticing options. We got the smoked duck nachos and falafel pizza and both were very tasty. There was enough for us to take home too. We had a lovely dinner and will most certainly be back.

    Great intentions ,BUT their online menu does not reflect their printed menu, they were out of half their stated menu items by 730 on a Saturday night , and they have a very limited drink menu. The wait staff was pedestrian and the hipster searing left slot to be desired Don't charge $$-$$$ should provide that service and experience!

    We found Maisys because it's close to the theater and it was a great find. We were a little pressed for time and our server adjusted to it perfectly without taking anything away from the experience. Food was very good and the wine selection better than most. I will return the next time I am in Baltimore.

    Dined on 8/30/2013
    The food was great, bu tThe wait staff fell short. It took at least 10 minutes to be seated despite making a reservation. Additionally, there was only one drink menu and it was missing. The waitress said there is a full bar so they can make anything. We found a drink list online, and when we chose off that, we were told that it was outdated and they couldn't make what we wanted. After asking several times what drinks were on the AWOL drink menu, she was able to only recall one. With how much money the place could make off of alcohol sales, I was surprised that nothing was advertised to us. If I would have been there with a different group of friends, I would not have ordered a beverage at all.

    A lively and interesting bar scene, comfortable seating, and cool ambiance and some of the best brick oven pizza in Baltimore. They even make their own mozzarealla in-house. Superb service by Nicolette. Try the other stuff on the menu as well. The mussels appetizer comes in a really interesting broth. Heartily recommended and excellent price/value relationship.

    I had the short rib eggrolls and crab fondue. They eggrolls had more connective tissue than meat and were loaded with oil. the Crab fondue with "house bread" was overloaded with Oldbay and barely any crab. I was disappointed. My server was very nice. But you go to a restaurant to eat, not for a nice server.

    You know how difficult it is to please a whole group? Well, this place did a great job. It had different price options, different diet restriction options, and the service was top notch. The ambiance was warm and lovely and the food was tasty. Pizza was their specialty and it showed (the crust, yum!) but other options were fine.

    Server was good. Yet, i ordered a NY Strip Steak. That was horrible. Lets just say, no seasoning or Steak sauce. The manager did try to make sure i was happy and i wants thankful. I know now i need to ask if the food is seasoned and if there are condiments to go along with what is offered on the menu.

    The food is not the problem at this restaurant. While it's nothing to write home about, (the preparation and flavor was ok), the real issue here is the terrible service. From waiting 25 minutes for one drink(a pour and serve beer) to not being told of the specials to waiting forever for any other inquiry of food, refills, to-go boxes or the check, the service was the worst I think we had ever experienced. The icing on the cake was our rude server who attempted to serve up lame excuses for his behavior. We weren't excited about going in the first place and we surely will never go back.

    I had the buffalo chicken pizza. It was great, however, my wife had the shrimp/pasta dish and it tasted nice but it had way too much sauce. They seemed to be understaffed on a Saturday night because the table next to us waited a long time for their entree,and i believe they were a few minutes away from walking out, and they only had chicken pasta dish, which doesn't take long to prepare. Lastly, they really need to recover the banquette seats because one could surmise that if the interior is shoddy, well perhaps the food is too. Ultimately, its not a bad place. They just need to fine tune their seating, service and tighten up on the dish my wife had. That said, i would return for a few brews, Monday Night Football, wings, etc...

    Maisy's is one of the best kept secrets in Baltimore. It is a smaller sized bistro on North St. Charles, convenient to the baseball and football stadium as well as the concert halls (Lyric Opera House, etc.) Given this great location, it becomes a MUST STOP for anyone before or after the game or theatre. The food is about the best in the city. Don't miss any item with short ribs in it. And the cost is very reasonable given the quality and uniqueness of the menu. Their crab entrees are superperb and the local items/specials are always worth ordering. I have eaten there over one dozen times andhave never been disappointed with anything I have ordered.

We ordered simple burgers and they were overdone and so salty. We will not visit again. They need to make some major improvements on the food to fill that restaurant for dinner. What a shame!

    The first time I went, I was favorably impressed; however, this time, Maisy's sort of fell flat. My wings were not very good and my wife's dish wasn't particularly memorable. It was likely an off day and we were in there early in order to make a performance so I'll give them the benefit of the doubt.
