NEW AND EXCELLENT!
We decided to try this new restaurant in Towson/Parkville – a little off the beaten path. They offered not a very extensive menu but the food is well worth it. They started us off with sweet potato rolls – yummy! The main courses were delicious and wonderful savory comfort food. BYOB is a plus. The beignets for dessert were awesome – light and fluffy! From start to finish, we had a completely enjoyable meal. Try Herb & Soul – we think you will like it.

Herb & Soul Great Experience
Excellent and creatively prepared foods. BYOB policy with minimal corkage. Our waiter was knowledgeable, friendly, prompt and let us enjoy ourselves.

Fresh, Healty and Unique
I love that there is a new restaurant in the area that isn't your typical burger, wings, pizza place! We were greeted by friendly attentive staff from the minute we walked into until we left. The server explained all the food and how it is prepared. They were more than willing to make accommodations. The menu has so many different dishes it s hard to choose. All of us agreed that the restaurant was a good choice, we really liked the cozy neighborhood atmosphere.
We went with the impression that "soul" food would be served ( cornbread, chicken, greens, etc) but found the food to be more of a fresh, healthy, vegan, gluten free assortment. A new dining experience with fresh local food, comfortable friendly atmosphere.

food was really good. I thought
food was really good. I thought that the mac n'cheese spring roll was overcooked, but everything else was pretty good. i had the blackened chicken sandwich and it was tasty. My colleague had asizeable crab cake sandwich that she said was excellent. The waiter was informative regarding the food, and was very attentive to our table.

Looks are deceiving
I chose this restaurant because of the foods on the menu. I pulled up and immediately my heart sunk to my feet. I was thinking to myself "what in the world have I gotten us into." We walked in and my heart jumped right back where it was suppose to be. We were greeted by a big smile and genuine "welcome." The place was nice and cozy. Our waiter Gabriel made us feel like we were at home. He was awesome taking very good care of us. The woman(can't remember her name) walked around to each table making sure everyone was ok and the chef did the same. Let me not forget the food. One word "excellent." Natural & scrumptious. The outside may scare you, but you'll be comforted on the inside. Up and coming restaurant that will be around for some time.

Think I'm in Love
Herb and Soul is a hidden gem. Although I should share it with the world, I'd selfishly like to keep it as my little foodie secret!

Herb & Soul bring both to Baltimore
There is no other restaurant that I know of in this area quite like Herb & Soul. It is obviously a work of love by all involved. Everyone in this small establishment brings passion for both the food and the customer to create a unique experience of excellent dining, -- with menu items new to some of us, like me, and wonderfully familiar to others -- Southern-style cuisine, easy comfort, and on the weekends, good entertainment! The chicken and waffles are a revelation: I'd never had them before, and wouldn't have tasted them, but a friend ordered them, and OMG! The greens are so full of flavor; the complimentary biscuits really do melt in your mouth. Ingredients are, as much as possible, locally soourced. Please patronize this little gem!

Shrimp and grits and comedy!
My date and I made reservations to come here because they were doing a comedy night. The comics were great and the atmosphere was awesome. The manager was very understanding when I called and told her we were going to be late. We got the crab Mac and cheese rolls and the shrimp and grits and both were delicious. We had such a great time and we will definitely be going back.

Great Vegetarian Fare
Great vegetarian fare....though only one vegetarian entree, sharing and mixing that with sides was more than we could eat and both entree and sides were great, flavorful and each was unique.
Super wait staff, attentive and offered good suggestions. Bonus on Saturday eve was a jazz trio that started as we were enjoying our dinner.
Don't miss the desserts.

The service was truly impeccable, each new dish arrived EXACTLY as we finished our current ones. And perhaps most importantly, the food was absolutely wonderful! I think the appetizers were really spectacular and although the ratio of grits to shrimp was a little off in our entrees, everything tasted great and the serving sizes were splendid. We also really appreciated how the live music didn't force us to talk louder, and the overall noise level was relatively tame. Great find, and look forward to visiting again sometime.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went on a Tuesday which happened to be comedy night... Free entertainment and fresh, delicious food. The chicken and waffle appetizer was delicious. I had shrimp and heirs which was ok... My date had the catfish which was easily the best I've ever tasted. Macaroni and cheese was cheesy and flavorful, and the greens were fresh and well prepared. It took a while to get our food, but it was well worth the wait.

Herb & Soul
The hostess/owner? was so nice, she is absolutely in the right business. We were slightly late for our reservation and with just a phone call where graciously accommodated. The food was very good and the decor was a vast improvement to the liquor store. The sweet potato biscuit was fabulous.

Herb & Soul is so special!
There may be other places in the Baltimore area that serve cuisine like Herb and Soul, but I sure don't know of them. Such creative cooking, such genuinely warm, attentive and gracious service -- this place really is a gem! Definitely Southern food, with quite the upscale twist, but without the prices at Charleston. This is a place to be comfortable and enjoy. This last time, the entertainment was a perfect addition -- really easy to listen to, not intrusive and fun. Please patronize Herb and Soul -- I want them to make it in this business!!

Wish I Could Eat Here Every Day
Herb and Soul has excellent food. I have eaten here several times and tried most of the items on the menu. I have never been disappointed. It is clear that the chef cares about each and every dish he plates. I also value the freshness of the ingredients.

What a gem!
The food was fantastic, the place quite quant and the staff impeccable. I can't wait to go back and tell all my friends about it.

diamond in the rough
One of the 5 best dining experiences I've had in the last 2 years.
From the moment we received some of the most delicious fresh baked bread and rolls I have ever had in my life (yes they were that good), I knew we were in for a treat.
We had the shrimp and grits which had great flavor and presentation (not a bunch of tiny shrimp swimming in a sea of grits like most places) and the old bay fried chicken which was moist, crispy and accompanied the creamy baked mac and cheese very well.
We ordered beignets and a red velvet waffle for dessert. Both were incredibly delicious.
Oh how I wish we had something even remotely like this in my hometown of boston!
The place wasn't terribly packed but I'm sure it will be as word spreads.

Don't be put off from the
Don't be put off from the oustside: this is a romantic place with knowledgeable, personable service. Live music on Saturdays at no extra cost, a culinary trained chef serving a mix of New Orleans, southern and modern foods from local farms, and BYOB, which I like. Cajun shrimp with grits-- huge shrimp and tasty grits. Old Bay fried chicken: crunchy on the oustside and tender inside. Very fresh spicy catfish, blackened brussell sprouts. And have you ever heard of red velvet cake waffles? You HAVE to try it-- I could hardly stop my tablemates from wolfing it down.
Before you get your heart set on a particular dish, ask what is not available: this is their one fault. I have visited several times, and always had a delightful time.

This is my second visit to Herb and Soul and once again I was pleased. We were seated promptly and when I asked if Gabriel was our waiter, we were told no. The hostess quickly solved that problem and Gabriel waited on us. The food was excellence!! My mother had the short ribs and I had the rosemary chicken. You will not be disappointed with this restaurant. As I mentioned before, the outside could use some fixing up and may even scare you away. Don't allow it, the inside is warm and welcoming.

Friendly staff, good food and music, most enjoyable evening. Perfect for those with special food needs. Food comes from local farmers. I think this place is great.....

Couldn't be more pleased!
Herb & Soul was my choice for a romantic night to celebrate my recent raise and I could not have picked a better place to dine. The staff was all courteous and insanely helpful, the food was beyond fantastic (I had the 5 scallop entree special - amazing!), and everyone that spoke to us that evening made us feel like we were being welcomed as family. Plus - gluten-free desserts that tasted better than any full-gluten dessert I've ever made at home?? This is our new go-to for special occasion dining!

Food for the Soul
Herb & Soul is a neighborhood gem! Warm and relaxing with a mellow vibe, Cass greets you like an old friend, adding to the comfortable ambience of this unexpected find. The art/decor is eclectic, and kept us looking around the place to see what else would catch our eyes. The live jazz (saturday night) was most enjoyable and provided pretty much up until closing. The place is not huge (definitely need a reservation), but that just adds to the intimacy and feel of Herb & Soul! The service was wonderful--kudos to the Chef! As a health conscious foodie, the fact that this restaurant is a farm to table venue with tasty, fresh and beautifully presented organic selections was amazing! So much to try; we will be returning--definitely!

Delicious Farm to Table Restaurant
This is a great restaurant in a almost tucked away corner of Loch Raven Blvd. The food was very yummy.
11/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
This restaurant has great food. My favorite was the fried fish, it had just enough seasoning and the color of the breading was nicely browned. Also the sweet potato biscuits were really good, we ordered extra. You can dine in or carry-out which is good. I highly recommend Herb and Soul, more people should know about it.

The Rumors are True
Prior to visiting this establishment I've ONLY heard great things and now post visit... The saga continues!
Within 2 minutes of arrival, the manger introduced herself to us and made us feel welcome.
The food was absolutely delicious!
The ambience was very unique and the staff members are very attentive to perfecting consumer orders and requests.
I will definitely revisit :)

loved it all except the fried chick & waffle- too much rosemary & dont like chicken strips, the music was great, the sweet potato biscuts & the fish stew were wonderful.

The sweet potato biscuits
The sweet potato biscuits with molasses/honey butter were out of this world. Our dinners were delicious. We enjoyed the live performers who were very talented. We will be back.

Home cooked gourmet.
Yum, the sweet potato rolls were wonderful. I had the rosemary chicken . So moist and flavorful. I will be back to try something else!

Creative Farm to Table & BYOB
We enjoyed a Saturday night dinner with live, smooth jazz guitar, eclectic comfort food and a friendly staff. Our second time back with consistent notes, this time with friends. We'll be back again!

Once bitten...Can't stop biting
I have never had anything but excellent service and phenomenal food at Herb & Soul. If you're looking for large menu with unlimited options of average food, this is not the place for you. However, if you're looking for a refined and selective foodie experience with flavors to delight your pallet then this is the place to be.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
don't let the exterior fool you!
I moved to maryland 7 yrs ago from los angeles n this is by far the best food iv had since I've been here. The herb n soul rolls were the best..had me wanting to lick my fingers n the plate!..the staff was very nice, prices are great for the portions ur served.. the food was fresh n we didnt have to wait long. I will be back this week to expose more friends to this hidden gem!

GOOO people GOOO!
Our first visit tonight and have already picked out what to order next time! Make a reservation for Baltimore County Restaurant Week and you too will soon become a regular! From the creative small plates to the entrees with sides that stand up on their own AND complement the main---A-MA-ZING! We ordered three desserts as we could not choose and all are our favorites. Decor is warm and they take food very seriously---free range chicken, FRESH farm ingredients, vegan and gluten free friendly and flavor-packed seasonings!
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had dinner with friends on a Tuesday which was comedy night. Fabulous food and the stand up comedy was really entertaining! Will definitely do it again! :-)
