Great service and great food!
Slow service, apparently due to an event.
Fantastic. Can’t wait to go back. The rosemary cocktail was delectable.
Good food, cocktails and excellent attentive service. This was our second visit before attending a concert/show, and we were seated, served in a timely fashion
A terrific pre-theatre dinner, delicious food! The French onion soup and the Wagyu burger are especially noteworthy
The host was amazingly friendly and funny, and our waitress sweet. But the food sadly let us down. The sweet potato gnocchi were tough, flavorless and arrived cold to our table. And the grilled shrimp too spicy and had a bizarre texture. Overall the food truly let us down, and I spent the majority of the night feeling ill.
Very nice food and outstanding service from the moment I came til I left.
We waited almost five minutes before being greeted by hostess. When we asked bartender about hostess, he gave an attitude of annoyance. Description stated that they had ample vegetarian options, not so! Flatbread was greasy with minimal toppings. Dry Caesar salad. Other entrees were enjoyable, including: spare rib (tender and tasty), gnocchi, wagyu burger and brazino. Signature cocktails were great! FYI the on line menu doesn't reflect current offerings. No complaints about service, nothing to rave about either. There was confusion as to valet payment process, and it's not customer friendly. A lady who appeared to be in a management position told us to go down to hostess stand. Host told us to go to bar, where we were told that our waitress should have taken care of it. Bartender did however complete the transaction. The back and forth was not a great way to end a mediocre night. Despite great ambiance and mostly good tasting food, we won't be returning.
I ordered fried oysters that don’t taste anything like oysters. My husband’s lamb shank was very salty. Too pricy for the quality of food.
The fillet was delicious, my favorite side was the sma
Came to B & O for brunch after the Marathon. While we were all starving, our brunch was delicious and the staff was very friendly and efficient!!!!
The staff was friendly, the food was great, and my cocktail was delicious!
I went here by myself the morning after a wedding and I was honestly not feeling great. The server was fabulous and brought me everything I needed (OJ, coffee, water) with a smile! He was very friendly and even though he seemed to be the only server, I never had to wait for anything! I had the Chesapeake omelet with home fries and a bagel. Will be back for sure :)
This is our first time at the B&O American Brasserie and will most certainly go back. The flat bread and Pork chops were delicious, the cocktails were unique and excellent, and the smashed potatoes with goat cheese were out of this world. To top of it all, our server, Soo, was extremely attentive and pleasant. It was just a great dining experience. It is also close to the Hippodrome should you be attending an event there.
Dominick was a great host and Patrick was a wondeful server! Overall a wonderful dinner and ambiance to enjoy an amazingly delicious dinner! I would recommend this place for a date night!
We were staying in the hotel, and are usually prepared for boring hotel food-- but this was a very good meal! Sunday night meatloaf special-- better than home! Great cocktails too. Service was friendly, attentive but not phoney. Same was true at breakfast. Thank you!
We made last minute reservations for a party of 8 and they were so friendly and accommodating! The food was tasty and the brunch bottomless mimosas were fun (although I’d prefer real juice). The house made donuts are a must!!!
Had business lunch. Food was good, service started out well but after lunch had to wait a long time to for the check.
Second visit to B&O. Met with an old friend. We both ordered steaks, medium rare, and both were cooked perfectly. Sides and drinks were also excellent. Eschewed dessert in favor of espresso, which was surprisingly good. Great service. Quiet venue, not too busy, though it was a Sunday. Would not hesitate to return.
The lobby in the Hotel Monaco is worth seeing, but the restaurant is not. Even though the food was good, the atmosphere of the restaurant and the service was disappointing. The place was empty and dark when we walked in. Definitely not an inviting atmosphere. Our server was personable, but she was hard to find. There are so many great restaurants in Baltimore, I was disappointed I chose to try this one.
This is my go-to place for brunch or dinner when I'm in Baltimore. You can't beat the food (they offered shirred eggs on the menu-- which I ordered and were delicious -- where do you find those in the US?) and the cocktail and wine program is outta sight. Oh, and a nice stable of local beers. Do yourself a favor and check out this place.
Food was a.bit underwhelming for the price. Good service nice ambiance
Great service and food choices. Very easy to substitute sides. Staff was friendly and enjoyable and the portions were perfect.
My family dined at B&O for my husbands 30th bday dinner and it was truly the perfect weekday dining experience. We had the entire upper floor to ourselves so it was nice and intimate. Our waiter, Pat was wonderful from start to finish. He was super helpful with offering menu suggestions, very friendly and accommodating to our little one. He made our dinner a wonderful experience. On top of the service offered by Pat, one of the hostess (or maybe manager) came up to check on us and she was also very friendly and personable. I’ve been to B&O a few times and would definitely return and recommend this place to others. The food was awesome! If you go, you must try the duck wings and the peach dessert!
Food and service was outstanding. I ordered a vodka drink straight up and it was served in a cordial glass. Other than that I loved the menu, the food and the service.
Terrific food, fried catfish sandwich was GOOD. Unlimited iced tea, great spot for business lunch mtg !
Great food, great service, a bit on the expensive side, but worth it
Food was delicious and service was excellent. Tried new cocktails and waiter was knowledgeable. But there was a problem with the air conditioning and they sat us upstairs, never said anything until we asked about it, after sitting hot and sweaty. Waiter apologized but no one offered to move us or compensate. So it was a bit of relief to leave.
CRAB CAKES, CRAB CAKES AND CRAB CAKES! OH DID I MENTION THE CRAB CAKES.
My wife and I spent the day in Baltimore for our anniversary. The cocktails were creative and delicious, I had salmon hush puppies with caviar and crab cakes for the main course. I order the 2 cakes but only really needed one. Services was excellent, the atmosphere was elegant.
Unfortunately, the food was just average. We had read a lot of positive reviews aboout the B & O and how special that it was. We went on a Saturday at 7:45 and were generally disappointed with our meal. The first time her wedge salad came out, the lettuce looked wilted. Also, her requests to exclude olives and to put the dressing on the side were not honored.
Pwrhaps we will give the restaurant a second chance, but with so many interesting and good restaurants in the Baltimore area we'll wait awhile before we return.
If you like mediocre food at 5 star prices that takes forever to be served, along with rude service this is the place for you. Based on reviews,our group of 6 were expecting an outstanding dining experience and were very disappointed. Our server took our drink orders and delivered them promptly. Our dinner orders were taken. Two oysters on the half shell and one salad appetizer, a couple flat bread entrees, a pasta entree and the daily special entree.
After waiting almost an hour for the appetizer course, I asked the waitress when we could expect our food. She, somewhat curtly replied, "They are shucking the oysters." When I replied that it had been almost an our since we placed the order she rudely said, "I'll get the manager." Everyone in our party was shocked at her attitude. I had not been nasty or rude when I asked about when we could expect to be served. Shortly thereafter the manager delivered our appetizers, and I told him about the issue with our server. To his credit, he immediately assigned another server to our table.
The oysters were great, but then it is hard to screw up raw oysters. When our entrees finally arrived, they were underwhelming. The pasta was dry and overwhelmingly smokey tasting, the flat breads so-so, and the entree special only fair.
The table was comped the appetizers and one entree, which I felt was warranted. However, it did not really make up for the overall negative experience. Oh, and did I mention that it was so noisy that we could barely carry on a conversation? Needless to say, we will not go back, nor will we recommend it to anyone. Quite the contrary, our advice is to avoid this place at all cost.
I cannot remember our waitress's name but she was awesome.
Great modern ambiance in classic building, awesome food presentation and creative flavor combinations, a little too salty this last visit.
Enjoyed a delayed anniversary dinner with friends during restaurant week. Everyone was extremely friendly including the manager who stopped by our table while we were dining. Courses were spaced perfectly and everything was so delicious. We are having our wedding here next year and wanted to check out the restaurants skills a little more and are so glad we did! Amazing!
We went for dinner, kitchen was having issues, limited menu. Flat breat and heriloom salad was great, gnocchi was terrible- and expensive, for lacking flavor, and being over cooked. Desert was lovely.
Service was a bit slow, never asked us if we would like another drink, even though we told hostess we would, just wasn’t going to happen I guess? Server walked off with pen, so we had to wait until she came back to process bill, and seemed annoyed that informed her she left with pen?
Maybe we will try it again if we end up visiting area again and Staying at the Monaco, but defiantly check to make sure if full menu is available.
I had the crab cake with fried green tomato and Tasso corn. It was delicious. Highly recommend!!
Everything was delicious for the most part. The duck wings were prefectly cooked, and the sauce on them was out of this world. For an entree I had the Friday night special ribs and they were delicious. Side potato wedges were well seasoned but slightly underdone and still chalky in the center. The peach crumb cake has a raspberry coulis that is so tart that it completely overpowers the cake. Made the whole thing taste like a lemon cake. Otherwise a great experience. Food came out quickly, waitress Yoon was present when needed but didn’t linger. Will definitely recommend to any friends should they come to Baltimore.
I can't wait to return. The Duck wings were delicious!
Great food! Interesting takes on everyday American cuisine. The service was outstanding, very attentive without being overbearing. It was not crowded at all when we went on a Friday night, but the sound carries easily with all the hard surfaces and a group of guys having a dinner made it very loud. They also had multiple items on the desert menu that were unavailable, so you had to remember what the waitress said while looking over an incomplete menu.
Great location, east access, really nice atmosphere. Loved the fresh shaved prosciutto at the bar and pizza oven. The duck wings and bacon jam burger are amazing!
