Nice Place with a great ambienceOuzo Bay is a great addition to Baltimore's restaurant and bar scene. I've been twice and only had seafood, which I judge as fair. My friends have had meat and assure me that it's superb. The service (my waiter both times has been Howard) is efficient and with a smile, the drinks are healthy in size and price, but overall the price is reasonable for a top restaurant.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat AmbienceI would highly recommend this restaurant. The ambience, food and service were excellent; no expense spared in opening this restaurant; even the plates that the food were served on were beautiful. We went for Mother's Day Brunch and we will definitely be returning without the kids for a romantic dinner.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMTasty Mother's Day!Took my wife and college aged daughter to Ouzo Bay for the first time on Mother's Day and we were all very pleased with the quality, presentation and taste of our food. We shared the spanakopita, lamb meat balls and cheese stuffed calamari as appetizers and they were all very good. My wife ordered the lamb shank and it was excellent, while my daughter ordered the seafood pasta, which was loaded with fresh shellfish and scallops.
We will be back, especially when the weather warms up to dine on their outdoor patio.
Howard, our server, was attentive and very friendly.
Thanks for a great end to a beautiful Mother's Day,
D5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding NightWe paired a night at the Hippodrome with a late dinner at Ouzo. Truly a wonderful night - outstanding food and service. Already making plans to do this again.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dining experienceFood was fantastic, service was excellent! My thanks to Jerry who waited on us - great recommendations, always there at the right time, he made for a really enjoyable experience. Perfect!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great time. However,We had a great time. However, be careful when you call for a reservation to ask to be seated at a normal size table. We arrived and all they had was a small round table with low chairs. Its more for drinks and an appetizer rather than having four dinner plates doing a balancing act on the table.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMClose to a Taverna in GreeceThe mezze and fresh fish are done to perfection - the roasted octopus is a must! Nice location on the water so outside dining is pleasant in the evening. Try the Trojan Horse cocktail or a wide assortment of Ouzo.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMFood selection was OK. Food,Food selection was OK. Food, such as spinach pie, was not as good as other Greek restaurants, I have been. Seating is horrible! The main seating, everody is so close together, that does not lead to an enjoyable experience.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMHighly recommend Ouzo Bay.Highly recommend Ouzo Bay.

The ambiance was wonderful and the service was great. I will be coming back.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe can attest to the BaltimoreWe can attest to the Baltimore Magazine rating of Ouzo Bay as their number one restaurant for 2012! Fabulous food, great service, and super ambiance....felt like we were in Rhodes, Greece.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAll of our food was great.All of our food was great. The hot items need to be hotter as if they weren't actually served when ready. It was a gourmet version of Greek food. Presentation was amazing, great flavors. Appetizer and Dessert portions were smaller than expected,but really good.
Very noisey inside. I will definitely go again, but try for the outdoor seating is available.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMterrific food, a tad noisyThe food was truly excellent and there was a great selection of drinks and wines. The service could have been a bit speedier, especially at the beginning when we had to wait a bit long for someone to take our drink order, but things picked up after that. It is a lovely place, but like many new restaurants a bit too loud (this seems to be some sort of trend). It is certainly a good place to go with a group, but perhaps not for a nice quiet evening, or for anyone who is hearing impaired.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved it both times!Excellent food with great service. Love the wines! Love the prawns and the octopus and the fresh fish. Superb! Sides are yummy. Pricey but worth it! It is very noisy though which may bother some, but not us!3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWent for a birthday dinner.Went for a birthday dinner. The food was wonderful and the service was fantastic.

It was bright and upscale. I loved the Greek dining tables and chairs...very comfortable. The food was exquisite. The waiter was knowledgeable and attentive. The view was nice!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMFood wand service were outstanding.Food wand service were outstanding. Was a great evening.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently good foodWe dined with another couple who had never been there and it was a success! We all enjoyed our whole fish meals. They were beautifully presented and tasted fresh and flavorful. The wait staff was attentive to water and to our wine without overpouring the wine. The bread was delicious. We decided to go with Greek wine and loved the Tempernillo/Cab blend that didn't break the bank but was a perfect complement to our meals. We will definitely go back when the doors are open and the outdoor seating is available.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was really good, especiallyFood was really good, especially the fish. Pick out your own. Cooked to order. Lovely. Our server, Andrew, was like part of the family in moments. We had a wonderful time.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMOctopus was amazing. QuailOctopus was amazing. Quail not so much. Everything else good to very good.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my second time atThis was my second time at Ouzo Bay. The first time we sat outside and it was delightful. This was when they first opened and weren't yet as popular. The second time we went on a Saturday night. They were a bit overwhelmed with their new success. No place for people to wait for tables, ours wasn't ready etc. But it's a great restaurant and we had a great time. I look forward to returning when the weather warms up.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWe really enjoyed the food.We really enjoyed the food. We dine out frequently and this would be a do again. There were 6 of of us and the restaurant is not very large so there were few large tables. The evening only would have one negative was that we were at a table just inside the door basically in the coat rack. Too small a space for this size table. Although they attempted to not be disruptive, everytime someone needed a coat we were bumped or interupted. Perhaps this area should only have a smaller table and another location identified for a larger table.3/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experience. Had cocktailsGreat experience. Had cocktails - perfectly balanced, happy hour appetizers - best meatballs ever, great grilled calamari. Bar staff very accommodating.
Deliciously and simply prepared fresh seafood - not to be missed. Service attentive and well trained. Good bargains on the wine list and attentive wine service (not something you usually get in restaurants these days). We will definitively go back very soon.1/10/2013 12:00:00 AMThe atmosphere at Ouzo BayThe atmosphere at Ouzo Bay was very lively. Our table for dinner was in the bar area, which was hopping all night. The clientele at the restaurant were very posh and fancy -- I saw many men in suits throughout the night. The food and service were good. My only complaint was about the bronzino. I know it was prepared Meditteranean style which was basically deboned and then flavored with salt and pepper but it was very boring. I should have got the steak.11/23/2012 12:00:00 AM
