La Calle was an unexpected surprise. It is a vibrant small restaurant. The service was excellent, the food was good, the drinks did not disappoint. What was especially noticeable was the care of the family in running the place, and ensuring the customers had all they needed. It made for a very pleasant evening, and we will definitely go back.

The food was awesome! The waiter was very polite and professional. I started off with Half and gals soup which was the Maryland Crab Soup and cream of crab mix. That was very delicious. I also had the crab cake sliders which were very tasteful. My husband enjoyed the Oysters Rockfeller and the Caribbean Roc fish. The ambiance was relaxed. More

Gordon Biersch is always a good experience. The menu has many options and the food is plentiful. Service is usually very good, but this particular visit it was clear they were short staffed. That said, our waiter was very pleasant....which is a credit to him as he was the only wait person in the large section of the restaurant. More

Steakhouse | Downtown, Baltimore

The manicotti was very dry, with no flavor. Just very bland. Very little Marinara sauce. Overall not cooked properly. The mozzarella cheese was not even brown and partially melted. The steak tasted excellent even though we asked for it well done and there were some red in it. We did love the music and videos being shown. We were looking forward to Karaoke but was told that did not start until 10pm. Overall so - so. More

Discover Downtown

The city of Baltimore knows crab, and a stop in the Downtown neighborhood wouldn't be complete without a visit to an authentic crab house. Crab is prepared nearly any way imaginable here, but if you have to pick just one, go for classic crab cakes, enjoyed with a pitcher of cold beer. If you're up for another seafood meal, try one of the many options for filets of fish, either blackened or sprinkled with Maryland's famous Old Bay seasoning. For a change from seafood, Downtown offers steakhouses aplenty. When the steaks are cut on-site, you know they're sure to be fresh. Elsewhere in this Baltimore neighborhood, farm-to-table meals with a strong emphasis on local vegetables will appeal to vegetarians and carnivores alike.
