Diner Reviews
  • "We had a great dinner on July 1st! We had never been to this restaurant but had heard about it and had read good reviews on it. We sat outside and had a bottle of greek wine and had the mezze platter as an appetizer. It was very tasty but quite pricey given the serving size. For entrees we had the lamb shank, lobster, sea bass and a whole fish special. All were delicious and well seasoned. We did not get dessert but they had some tempting dessert items listed. The service was excellent and our waitress was well versed on the menu and how the dishes were prepared. Parking was about average for Baltimore as we had to park a few blocks away from the restaurant although they did offer valet parking."

  • "Everything was great, the service, the venue, the apps, the cocktails and most of the food I tried was divine. I would definitely recommend the Achilles Heel cocktail and the octopus appetizer. Having tried the lamb chops, halibut, and sea bass, all were amazing. I could not recommend the lamb shank. Although cooked to perfection, falling off the bone, the flavor lacked any kind of distinguishing character. All-in-all it was a great evening and I will be going back. I would definitely like to hit their happy hour."

  • "What a gem! With a great harbor setting and postmodern design, Ouzo Bay is comfortable and attractive. The service is top-notch. And the food was delicious. We had outstanding grilled calamari and perfectly prepared sea bass. Looking forward to returning and trying more menu items."

  • "Had heard before we went that it was great and it lived up to that reputation. Unique Greek food served in a unique decor made for a really pleasant and enjoyable dinner. Wine list was broad and there were a lot of choices at reasonable prices. Food was really very tasty and serviced wife had the Salmon and I had the Chilean Sea Bass. Great! Service was attentive and not over done. will be going back that's for sure."

  • "Coming from a Greek family it is hard dining out at a Greek restaurant as you end up comparing everything to your Nona's cooking and usually end up disappointed. I wouldn't tell her but this passed the test. Everything was delicious. The wait staff was quick and attentive and the ambiance was nice. The restaurant itself is very clean and modern. My only criticism would be noise levels. This place would do well to add some sound isolation to at least a section of the main restaurant for those that want a slightly more intimate vibe. With all the openness and metal surfaces it tended to be on the loud side. Wonderful restaurant though."

  • "Everything was great...we arrived a LOT early for our reservation and was still seated promptly. We originally requested a table for four but realized other guests would be arriving and was immediately accommodated with a larger table, much to my chagrin our guest arrived so late that they did not eat dinner, my son, also in the service industry, said that can be a bit of a turn-off for some waiters when they're expecting a larger check, hence a larger tip...we never felt slighted...overall great experience:)!"

  • "Went to Ouzo Bay on a Sat evening in early July. Weather was warm but breezy, so we ate outside. Service was attentive without being overbearing. We split the spinach pie and fried calamari. The calamari was lightly breaded and with a perfect texture. The spinach pie was deep dish and had a pungent and flavorful feta. My wife had the halibut and I had two langoustines. The halibut was cooked perfectly, although she may have enjoyed less sauce. The langoustines were grilled to perfection and lightly flavored, allowing their natural sweetness to show through. An expensive dinner, but well worth it!"

  • "Food was mediocre at best, service was efficient if not knowledgeable about menu items and noise level was so high you could not hear across the table. Only the sommelier was worthy of this over priced over rated restaurant."

  • "I loved Ouzo Bay as ann overal experince. I do feel that after having gone twice, the grlled seafood items tend to be over cooked, and thus too dry. Ambiance is spectacular!!"

  • "We went to Ouzo Bay on the suggestion by a friend. Our outdoor table was lovely and the place had a great vibe. We were in no rush, but waited an hour and still did not receive our appetizer, a bowl of olives (which we ordered because it looked like dinner was going to take a while). Our entrees suddenly arrived with little sign of our waitress. She finally checked in on us and we asked about our appetizer and she seemed very non-concerned. We proceeded to cancel the "olive order" and she seemed miffed. We spent a lot of money, yet really didn't feel that the staff was friendly. Wouldn't go back. There are other places with better service."

  • "Ouzo bay is a lovely restaurant but is designed poorly. the end of the bar, the restrooms,and the kitchen exit all come together at a certain point and it is almost impossible to get thru. I can only imagine it is a night mare for the servers with people in their way all the time..also the server started off good but fizzled out as the night went on. The flaming Saganaki was terrible and hard as a rock...the by the glass wine list has very limited selections. I would not go back."

  • "The food and the servers we had were both amazing. I got the lamb chops they were great we sat outside and had a great time. The place is pricey, but worth it."

  • "We had a lovely, lovely evening. Our server was knowledgeable and honest. He also was attentive without being pushy. The food 100% lived up to the hype. While I think that the noise level was a bit overwhelming at times, I must commend the management for putting us at a quiet table where we could enjoy ourselves. It was our 10th anniversary and really was a great spot. I can't wait to go back on another special occasion."

  • "Greek cuisine and not just! With plenty of outdoor seating for these summer nights and a view of the water OuzoBay is perfect for all occasions. Professional and attentive staff, perfect ambience and a vibrant bar scene. 5Stars all around from this picky foodie."

  • "We had the most delightful evening here celebrating our special anniversary. Given a heads-up when we made the reservation, they gave us a special table, a very attentive waiter, and the kid glove treatment. The food was wonderful, but the experience was superb."

  • "We had heard great things about this restaurant and decided to spend our anniversary dinner dining at Ouzo. Everything was great. We were seated exactly at our reservation time despite the crowds. The waiter was fantastic and the food delicious especially the halibut entree we split. I would go back for sure. Many good things to try on the menu. Atmosphere was fun. Tables are on top of one another so privacy is not something you will likely have if you need it."

  • "We went to Ouzo Bay on a Wednesday night with an 8pm reservation and weren't seated until 8:45. The restaurant was extremely loud until about 10, when it slowed down about. That being said, the food was absolutely delicious and definitely worth the wait."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "I can't begin to explain how fantastic this place is. Between the knowledgeable waiters, the amazing food, and extensive wine list, the whole experience was perfect. I was tasked at finding a restaurant to take my very particular employer and I was told Ouzo Bay was the place to go! That was exactly right. My whole party, including my boss was very impressed. They also fit my party in the day before when they were booked with no open reservation. I would recommend Ouzo Bay to anyone and everyone, even the most critical foodie."

  • "This was my 4th visit to Ouzo Bay, so obviously we have had previous good experiences. The drinks still were wonderful - there is some capable mixology going on there. The food was uneven: great octopus and sea bass, capable albeit tame lamb, and tasteless and slightly tough tuna...and too much lemon on everything - yes, it's Greek, but the other flavors get masked. In past visits all of the fish has been excellent, so maybe this was a one-off. Service was very cursory. Drinks came quickly but never were offered replenishment, and table visits were minimal. The noise level continues to be a challenge for inside dining; my small party had trouble conversing. So, still a fun spot for drinks, but not as steady on food and service."

  • " I was with a group of 5 women who dine out regularly and this was our second time at Ouzo Bay. On this occasion, it was a beautiful, breezy night, on which to dine outside, celebrate a birthday and begin the summer. The soft shell crabs that we all had were the absolute best - large and succulent. The sides of either roasted potatoes or ouzo were pleasing and the baked feta with tomato and eggplant puree appetizer was fantastic. Our Server was helpful with the wine, amiable and attentive to our needs without hovering. We loved the wine and liked him. Can't wait to return with my husband and out of town friends."

  • "Our first time here. There were 4 of us. Went on a Sunday afternoon around 4:00 after a show at the Hippadrome. It was a fantastic meal. My wife is Greek so we don't take Grrek fare lightly and Ouzo Bay did not disappoint. My only complaint is the cost. This is not an everyday kind of place, at least not for us, but rather one I would keep for special occasions. Nothing but positive things to say about every plate that was served from taste to presentation. Service was fantastic, very attentive but not pushy. Valet parking for $8 with a validated ticket for dinners."

  • "The waiter we had was very friendly and knowledgeable about the dishes. The lamb chops and calamari was to die for even the drinks and desserts were good. Nice romantic setting and you can hear yourself talk I love it and will be back."

  • "As a Greek that's grown up almost exclusively on Greek food, I have a certain idea in my head when it comes to what Greek food should be and how it should be made. Ouzo Bay comes close to that, as well as getting very close to the kind of Greek food you'll have in Greece. Now I don't think Ouzo Bay is as much trying to be 100% authentic Greek food as it's trying to be Greek with a twist. Ouzo Bay is a great restaurant and probably THE spot I would take someone for a special occasion or a nicer dinner. It's not as formal as Cinghiale, which is perfectly fine because it's more youthful and fun. This is my favorite restaurant in Baltimore along with Adela's, and I'm really picky when it comes to my favorites! Try it out, trust me."

  • "Had the opportunity to dine here for the 3rd time in celebration of Father's Day. While our party would say that the appetizers are fantastic, the entrees are only good. They are simply prepared, without the chef taking a lot of chances with spices. Our waitperson (this time) was Excellent, not so much previous times. Lovely view, and a vibrant bar scene!"

  • "The food quality and presentation was excellent. Prices are a bit high for appetizers, but appropriate for mains. Cocktails were pricey but well made. Overall, our compliments to the chef and bar staff. The restaurant is well located and beautifully designed. The service, however, was poor. The server seemed scattered. Sometimes nice and sometimes vacant. There were long waits; Poor seating choices for a party of two. We were seated outside initially, but when it rained there was no accomodation made for this. We then came in and had to wait over 20 minutes for a table. No attempts were made by the restaurant to make the situation better. We had a nice time, but it could have been so much better...."

  • "First of all, our server, Russ was outstanding! He was always ready to assist, without being pushy or in the way. Great recommendations, really wonderful service. The ambiance was spectacular - with the sea breeze flowing through the open doors, and the simple yet elegant decor. The food was fabulous - we had the grilled calamari, olives, saganaki and mussels for appetizers, Lobster tail was the entree for two, the King Prawns for my husband and I had the Halibut. Wine great, chocolate ice cream for dessert, espresso and capuccino to end the meal. Only negative (a small one, because quality is not inexpensive) is that you should expect to pay $100 per person to eat here"

  • "We celebrated my husbands birthday with another couple, who also like good food. None of us had dined at ouzo bay before, other than hearing that it was good, we had no idea what to expect, our waiter was very helpful in navigating the menu and wine list, he offered suggestions where they were needed. Appetizers for the table were grilled octopus ( highly recommend ) and zucchini chips (mostly for the tzatziki). Dinner was 2 of us having fish from the whole fish selections which was extensive, lamb chops and scallops, we also ordered sides of grilled veggies and orzo lobster and cheese. There was not a complaint from anyone in our party, although it's too expensive for a regular night out we will find more special occasions to go back."
