    This place has a solid menu but failed to live up to it. We started with the tuna tartare which is fantastic, but ended with the crispy eggplant sandwich which was soggy and very disappointing. With other great foodie choices in Annapolis I am not sure we will try again.

    Wine list very limited. Our server found a decent bottle of Pinot Noir. Server was very good, she did everything she Could to make our dining experience pleasant. Food was creatively prepared and very tasty. Unfortunately both the Calamari app. and Bouillabaisse were room temperature at best. Had to ask for a spoon to eat my entree. Sunday night, restaurant is closed on Mon. First thing our server tells us is that three items on the menu were not available. Too bad, could have been a WOW experience.

    Been here twice, both disappointing. Last time, they were out of almost everything, tables were uneven, lighting was horrible, waitresd didn't know the menu and wasn't checking up on us frequently, steaks and fish were cooked too much and grits tasted like it was instant. Overall a bad experience; had the parents meeting my boyfriend's parents for the first time; needless to say they didn't like the food either. Also, floors needed to be vacuumed and tables cleaned and level. We really wanted to make this Resteraunt our fav, but it just didn't perform at all levels. Won't be returning.

    We had reservations for a Friday evening. Don't know how long we would have waited without one. The restaurant was full and had a vibrant crowd. Not necessarily the best place for intimacy, but it was comfortable and had a fun atmosphere. Our waiter was excellent - very attentive without being annoying. We had a calamari appetizer which we both agreed was the best we'd ever had. A very light batter and quick fry so that it was not greasy at all. For dinner we ordered the grilled scallops and the flat iron steak entrees and both were awesome. The potatoes that came with the steak were very good - almost like an au gratin but lighter. And the scallops were accompanied by a shredded leek slaw and butternut squash puree - both very nice.

    Great food and service. This was my second visit and I got the tuna tartare and side of truffle fries again despite all the other good options. They are both unique and ver well prepared. Top it off with a salad and glass of wine and its a perfect meal. The place has a nice vibe but the bar area is way too noisy for conversation at a table

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010

    It's because we love this restaurant that we wanted to have our Valentine's Day dinner there. Unfortunately there was nothing on their website about a fixed price holiday menu, so we didn't get to order our favorites from the usual menu, which was a little bit of a downer. The only course that was really outstanding was the filet for the main course. Also, regarding noise, we were just unlucky in having a loud gentleman standing and talking to the couple at the table right next to us. The tables at the restaurant aren't that spread out, so for a while my fiance and I could barely hear each other talk. We basically had to yell our conversation to hear over the booming laughter a foot away. We'll be back, just not for a romantic dinner.

    We had dinner before a show upstairs. The service in the restaurant was excellent, but once you got upstairs for the concert, there was little seating (we were too old to stand all night) and only one bartender trying to serve people 3 rows deep waiting. I never got a drink, found an uncomfortable chair in the corner, and listened to some great Indie music. I think they're going for a young, Indie crowd. Too bad they're not the ones who spend money. Good luck!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013

    Great farm-to-table restaurant concept with one of the best views in Annapolis from the huge rooftop deck! Lots of vegetarian options, which my husband tried and loved (the fig and goat cheese flatbread was a standout). I am a seafood lover and loved their take on fried oysters, served with a fennel cream that gave a lovely French note to the dish without taking it into frou-frou land. The lobster risotto was superb, a large portion, not to mention around $22.... a bargain on every level. Huge craft beer selection several of which we enjoyed immensely with our meal. We didn't have cocktails this time, but they were very unique and sounded delicious - we'll be coming back to try them and the rest of the menu very soon!

    The menu is eclectic, with many interesting choices, many of which are locally produced meats and vegetables from local farms. The prices are reasonable for the quality of the offerings. The size of portions are slightly on the small size. The restaurant has a peculiar design and is quite narrow and somewhat cramped. We got the rockfish, which was very good, albeit a small portion, and the devil's egg for starters , which was excellent.

    This was a very disappointing experience. Tables and menus were greasy and not cleaned properly. Although the crab cakes were very good, the steak frite was overcooked and the fries were burnt. The general appearance of the restaurant was so disappointing we thought we were in the wrong place when we walked in. It needs a facelift and thorough cleaning. Certainly not what we expected by reading other reviews!

    Delicious. Amazing autumn inspired cocktails, including one with pumpkin butter that would specifically make me a regular this season if I lived closer. Tried the Lamb Burger which was denser than I expected... think gyros in burger form. Tasty, but I was hard pressed to finish half after my salad and shared staple - Aged Cheddar Mac & Cheese (with bacon of course). Our server was attentive without hovering and offered great menu recommendations. Will absolutely return soon.
