    I love Phaze 10! I will give them a try over and over...mainly because it's homegrown and Black-owed. but unfortunately I haven't seen them "get it right" just yet. Their food is really good and the ambiance is nice too...but their service...it still needs improving. The food may be brought out in a timely manner, but the guests are not well attended to or "checked on." If you need assistance, your server is usually no where eyesight or he or she is attending to other patrons. I'll keep trying though, because I know they are trying and sometimes it takes a little longer for some than others.

    The food here is very good -- flavorful, fresh and well presented. We had an unfortunate glitch with our dessert with the first item reported back as unavailable and a long wait for the replacement. But they comped us on the dessert due to the wait. The service was friendly with some lapses in attentiveness. Will definitely go back.

    Went for what I thought was going to be a Gospel Brunch. I was so excited I invited a few friends along. The website said it began at 11-3pm. The waiter was very young but attentive. We asked for a side of chicken wings as an appetizer and was told they were not on the brunch menu and couldn't be prepared without the managers approval, who of course wasn't there. We looked over at a table and saw a couple with fish and greens which I didn't see on the brunch menu. After about an hour, we noticed there was no music playing so we asked when the gospel would begin, 'oh, around 1:30' was what we were told. I was so disappointed that I wasn't able to enjoy the gospel while dining. As we were leaving out the door was when the music began.

    Our waiter Christian was very knowledgeable about the menu. The drinks were delicious and the food wad prepared great. The band was outstanding and the atmosphere made for a wonderful evening. I was disappointed there was no valet that night but thankfully we did not have far to walk and the parking lot was cheaper than valet.

    I booked a reservation at Phaze 10 for my wife and I's 12th year anniversary. This was our first visit and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The food, service, and music was great! My only complaint is that there was an issue with valet parking this evening so we had to find our own parking in an unfamiliar city. Overall we had an outstanding experience and will definitely be spreading the word about this gem! ☺

    I scheduled a reservation at Phaze 10 for a group. We arrived on time for our 12:30 pm reservation. We waited for food and watched other groups near us receive their food before us. At 2 pm we were finally told that our food was just being cooked in the kitchen because different orders were mixed up. During our wait, our drinks were not skillfully made and we had to wait longer than usual for water because our waiter was dealing with complaints from another table. We understand mistakes happen, but the communication to our table about what was going on in the restaurant was poor. We had to ask the waiter and manager for an explanation rather than them being proactive and coming to us to inform us of issues going on.

    My wife and I were celebrating our fifth year wedding anniversary, and I choose Phaze 10 in the hopes to enjoy great food and some nice relaxing live jazz. The set up for the restaurant is not for those who want to see the band. The seating in 90% of the restaurant made it impossible to see the band, and we were told that the camera to show the band on the big screen monitors was broken. I have to admit the food was very good and the drinks were nice. But the service was very poor and the customer chatter was so loud that we could not even hear the band well from our seats. After a birthday party of twenty was seated near us, we called it a night and went back to our hotel.

    We went for brunch. First they sat us in the bar where the music was loud and people were watching the game. The people were rowdy, the waitress couldn't remember our order even though she wrote it down. Then the food came out and my steak was overcooked so I told them I didn't want it I'd just eat my appetizer... They sent out the chef and didn't credit my tab for the horrible steak. Never again.

    I love this place. It is so energetic ... as soon as you walk in you hear the band. The front desk is very friendly. My waitress kept checking on me to make sure that I was ok. The food was hot and delicious. They serve good Moscato (Bartenura blue bottle). The owner gave his personal touch by making us feel special and checked on us. The DJ was upstairs and everyone was dancing. It is a hot spot if you just want to chill and have dinner, or a hot spot of you want to dance that food off. I know Baltimore seems far to some in the DMV area, but it is definitely worth the trip for something different and fun. No cover charge ... wowwwwwwwww. Come on DMV ... let's support this great HOT SPOT!!!!! Ba

    This restaurant is wonderful. The live jazz adds a nice touch while eating your dinner. This restaurant is elegant and lively. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The service at this restaurant is great. The food and drinks are amazing. The menu has many tasty items to select from. For my appetizer, I had crab dip with pita bread. It was so good. And for my main course, I had the BBQ Salmon with asparagus and mac and cheese. It was great. For dessert I had the sweet potato pie. Overall, I give this restaurant a 10!!! I can't wait to eat here again.

    We arrived at about 830 and ordered drinks. Food and drinks did not come out until 1030. The waiter had to look for silverware and was not focusing too much at our table. We had to call her over to get service. The band was great. I felt that we were close to the bathrooms in which they only had two and one of which was a single stale but the kitchen. The food was ok. I just thought the service could have been alittle better. If I do go back, it will be for drinks only.

    We came here before a lecture at the Meyerhoff on a Tuesday and were impressed with the food and the service. The building is a great old Baltimore building with tons of character in the staircase, the leaded glass partition between the dining room and the bar, etc. Our food was excellent, starting with the cornbread starter and the home made chicken tenders and scrumptious crab dip. Our server was friendly and helpful. We walked by after the lecture and the bar was hopping with a crowd that looked like it was having a great time.

    I went to Phaze 10 on a date. The atmosphere was pretty nice although very loud, and not just from the band. While the food was excellent... the service not so much. The waitress was really pleasant but slow. We had to keep reminding her about our drinks and condiments we asked for. The other diners were for lack of a better word a little "ghetto"; taking selfies, group photos etc at their tables. The band was just OK for me. Overall I'd probably dine at Phaze 10 again since the food was so good. It just wouldn't be the first place that would come to mind.

    I booked the reservation to celebrate my Fiance's birthday. We immediately noticed it was extremely loud we found ourselves constantly leaning in to hold conversation. Starters - cornbread & crab dip were great. Cocktails- were average mine was originally served to me in a dirty glass. Entrees- He said his Fried catfish was some of the best he ever had. I did not enjoy the BBQ salmon entree and picked at it and finally just decided to not eat any of it. When the server came over and noticed she apologized and removed my plate. No one offered me an alternate choice or anything to keep me from having to basically pinch off cornbread and still leave hungry. I recommend this restaurant for parties/ singles mingling, not a romantic atmosphere.

    My first visit was the Sunday brunch, which I was not impressed the limited brunch menu. My second visit to Phaze 10 was Friday 9/18. The seating arrangement is really awkward. You can only see the jazz artist if you're sitting at the bar. For people who are visual, If you sit any place outside of the bar you will NOT see the entertainer, which may not be so bad if you can hear them. The noise level is so HIGH you can hardly hear the band. It's very loud in this place I though the noise level would decrease - NOT, it got worse. I have given this place two chances, but I won't be going back there.

    The only concern I had while dining at Phaze 10 is my table was next to the vent on the first floor and the vent needed to be dusted, the TV screen kept loosing its signal so you couldn't see the band all though they had an awesome sound and we didn't get our corn bread until we were getting ready to leave. I do plan on returning to phaze 10.

    In a nutshell...there were 8 of us only 3 of us received our correct order in a timely manner. The other 5 sent theirs back due to being cold or not what they ordered. Our server Kay was great!!! She was wearing many hats, but managed to keep a smile while running around like a chicken with her head cut off. Jay, I believe is his name, came over to hear the numerous problems and was very nice. I will return here again, only because the last 2 times I was here the food was great. We appreciated the chef coming out and hearing our concerns as well.
