apropoe's Ratings and Reviews
I recently hosted my book club's meeting at Apropoe. The service and food were both excellent. Our server, Mustapha, was very attentive and accommodating. One of my guests, a vegetarian, unknowingly ordered a grilled cheese sandwich which had bacon jam on it. When she mentioned this, the chef replaced her sandwich with a bacon-free substitution. Another one of my guests was bothered by the sun in her eyes while she was dining. The restaurant staff graciously remedied this problem by lowering the electronically-operated shade. In addition, even though I had made a reservation for 8, I had ten guests show up, and the restaurant staff accommodated us by adding additional chairs. I would definitely give Apropoe high marks for customer service!
I was really hoping the crab cakes would be worthy of their location, but they were a bit bland. They skimped on the aioli and the corn relish, so this main plate was lacking in diversity of flavors and textures. Pineapple upside down cake was unremarkable. Overall, I was expecting better tasting food at this price point.
This supposedly Poe-themed restaurant had nothing Poe related to be found, so that was a let down there. The restaurant has a combination of tables and lounge areas, so you can take your pick of seating. The room was dark and quiet enough to have easy conversations at our table.
Went here for a business breakfast. I had the egg white frittata which was pretty healthy and delicious. I would have appreciated a side of potatoes, fruit or something else with it.
Fantastic service and a great atmosphere. I loved the seating arrangements with the bench.
We both ordered the soup (crab/corn chowder and red pepper) and they were good. We had the pasta with bolognaise sauce and it was good, but left a vinegar-like after taste. We ordered the crab pizza and it was just OK -nothing to rave about. Overall the food was good - but I wish we would have tried another place as many other restaurants had spectacular reviews. This restaurant was selected for convenience.
Service was slow. We waited 15 minutes before we had to ask someone to assist us to take our order then it took another 5 minutes. Initially the waffle was cold and hash brown were very oily. The waffle was warmed in the microwave brought back to us flipped over as it was a newly made waffle. Finally, I talked to person who worked in the kitchen and he had them to make another waffle. Very dissatisfied. The manager Katie wasn't very helpful either. She never checked to see if everything was alright.
Very cool location and ambiance, but the food was not good at all. The overly expensive hamburger was just a meatball of low grade beef that looked grey and had no flavor at all. The ravioli was nothing special and was bland. The tomato soup boasted a Parmesan cheese "puff" which was nothing more than an airy bread stick, while the soup was like Campbell's. Overall a very expensive place with very lack luster food.
It was very convenient to dine here as we were going to a Pier 6 concert. We were surprised at the cost. We had wine, cup of soup and small salads to keep the cost down. Felt like a lobby, not a separate restaurant. Our waiter was fantastic and made the dining experience special.
Went for Baltimore Restaurant Week. $30 app/entree/dessert was a steal! The chilled cucumber yogurt soup with crab salad sounded interesting and turned out phenomenal. I got the pan seared strip loin as my entree cooked medium and it was one of the best pieces of steak I think I've ever had. And for dessert, the angel food cake with grilled peaches and vanilla ice cream was perfect. The place had a chill vibe with some lounge chairs and couch areas, and the dining tables had bigger comfy chairs. It wasn't too loud for our group of 6 to have nice conversation, it would probably be great for a date as well as the lights were dimmed a little and the I could see the setting being romantic. Will definitely return and recommend to friends.
Let me start with some positive feedback. Six friends met at Apropoes for Restaurant week. We were seated fairly quickly and the food was a hit! The mix green salad, pan seared strip, and key lime cheesecake were fantastic! Everyone was pleased with their food selections.
Now about the service. There were five African Americans and one Caucasian in our group. The waiter was a Caucasian male. The waiter did not introduce himself by name nor greet the table with any pleasantries. His attitude was very standoffish as if he did not want to service our table. The appetizers, entrees, drinks and deserts took a very long time to come to our table. We noticed that other guests who arrived after us were being tended to more frequently and their food arrived before ours. After waiting for over 15 minutes for the waiter to come back after we finally received our drinks, I solicited assistance from another service staff to speak with the manager. The original waiter never came back to our table. I spoke with the manager about this situation and she apologized for his behavior. I asked the manager did the waiter have an issue with our race because we noticed how he tended to other tables that were Caucasian but neglected ours. The manager responded that race was not an issue, but considering the circumstances it makes you wonder.
I will not come back to this establishment just because I didn't leave feeling that my business was welcomed. I cannot overlook the fact that the food was delicious and I must give kudos to the chef. Unfortunately poor service always trumps the quality of the food in my opinion.
Even though the restaurant was completely empty we had very poor service and the food quality for a Marriot was quite pitiful... This is Baltimore where crab is king and we were served a soft shell appetizer where the crab hadn't even been cleaned. There were lungs on the soft shell!! Our server replied "that they come in that way" which is absolutely ridiculous. My son ate half of the soft shell not realizing and could have become very sick. We also ordered a bottle of wine and instead of pouring a taste to make sure our bottle was good he proceeded to fill both our glasses not giving us the opportunity to see if it was corked or not. There were many other issues including overcooked burgers, etc... but, after the soft shell disaster and the lack of wine presentation I clearly knew that I would never return. I can't believe this restaurant is still open with the vast amount of options in the area. Maybe the hotel breakfast crowd keeps this operational...
I have not been here in a few years and it was under different ownership. I was here due to mother's day, but not for the mother's day bunch. I had a very dried up vegetable omelet and dry french toast. Everything was very over cost down to the mimosas. I really didn't appreciate the quality of service we received. I feel like we were being rushed. I will not be recommending the place to no one.
it's a nice location on the Inner Harbor. The service was top notch - especially since we wanted a quiet dinner to visit and catch up. The presentations were nice, but the menu is nothing exciting. It is a hotel coffee shop with a better view than most - so not surprising that we were the only people there at 6:30
We had a group of 4 adults and two children for a Sunday Brunch after staying overnight. apropoe's offers a great brunch menu but the buffet won us all over and we're so glad we chose it. There were options for every eater, including two picky kid's and both kids and adults with allergies. Offerings such as made-to-order omelets and waffles, to regular eggs and breakfast meat options, buscuits and gravy, even cereal and milk. The food was really delicious, especially for a buffet, and our server was awesome. Will definitely be back!
I was in the Marriott attending a business seminar. I arrived earlier then my colleagues with their meal selections. The waitress was friendly and above accommodating. She planned the food order to come out at exactly my meeting time. She also provided me with a beverage not normally served in their restaurant. The food was all good and the service was above standard. Great place to go for a business lunch.
The only thing Apropoe's has going for it is their location. I truly believe that is the only reason this poor excuse for a restaurant is still in business. When I checked in for the reservation, I said that it was a reservation for six, but would now be five. They had to set the table, even though there were plenty of tables, and I mean PLENTY around that were set and empty. They set the table for six, we didn't think anything of it. We ended up waiting for 20 minutes to order food because our waiter thought the sixth person was coming, even though we also told him that it was just the five of us.
The food was nothing special. Applebee's food is better. During our meal it took FOREVER to get to our table. I got the crab pizza. My friend asked for the burger to be cooked medium, and it came well done. Another friend got one of the soups and it came out cold, when she asked for the soup to be warmed up, it took over 10 minutes for the soup to come back and it was barely warm. It's things like these where you know the entire operation is run by amateurs.
It was a very slow meal. We ended up having to grab another waiter and ask for our checks because our waiter barely came to check up on us. When we wanted to leave, the waiter asked if we wanted separate checks and when we said yes, he stood there for a moment and just stared at us. Needless to say, he didn't get that great of a tip. Very rarely do I not tip at least 18-20%. I don't think I even tipped 15% for this meal. I know some of the issues were not his fault, but many of them were as well. My friends were even less than understanding, leaving about 10% tip.
He took our books as we were still sitting at the table, tips in them and all, and gave us dirty looks while putting in the tips.
We came here for our first time as part of restaurant week and I was sadly disappointed. It wasn't the food or the atmosphere that was disappointing, it was the level of service. We had a waiter that barely spoke English, never asked us if we wants drinks (the hostess filled our water glasses) food came out of order. Waited 20 minutes for dessert it was just a bad experience. The food was some of the best I've had in the city but because of the service we received I don't see myself returning.
Well, both good and bad. The menu that we were given was different than online which was bad for me as a vegetarian. Not a lot of options. I had pizza (so-so) and caesar salad (meh). My husband's meal was much better. Crab cake dinner (full of crab), crab and corn chowder and wedge salad were both great, he says.
We were greeted warmly and had friendly but casual service. The view is lovely and the ambiance is mixed because the restaurant is not so separate from the bar and hotel entrance area.
We won't be going back but I have to say I'd probably send a friend here to check it out.
The crab cakes and crab chowder were delicious and well worth the cost! Possibly the best I've ever tasted. Service was a little tricky and slow, perhaps they were understaffed for the evening? Dessert was good, but the pecan pie tart was premade and had a really thick crust that was a little overpowering. I'd recommend making reservations as it just made seating easier since they seemed disorganized.
We went to apropoe's on a Saturday evening, making a last-minute Open Table reservation. The food sounded interesting and it was very close to our hotel (it is located inside the Marriott). Figuring out how to enter the restaurant is a little confusing because of the bar area, but we received a table of our choice and the service was attentive.
The food was very good--the burger and fries were quite good examples of the genre and the crab pizza (with a kale pesto) was filling and had a crust that was neither too think nor too thin.
The lemon creme brulee was a nice twist and cooked well.
The only down side was noise level. I'm open to the idea that a Saturday during college football season is perhaps not the best time for a quiet meal, but it wasn't clear from the description how much the hubub in the bar would spill over into the dining room (they aren't separated particularly).
