Special occasions with wife. Always more special here at Charleston.
Memorable food experience. We went for a special birthday, and the meal lived up to the hype and the price. They pay attention to details and you feel special about being in the beautiful place eating gorgeous and delicious food.
I've been here twice for special occasions and absolutely love it. The food is spectacular and the service is outstanding. Completely worth it.
Cindy Wolf's oldest is still her best and food shines at Charleston
Cindy Wolf knows how to run a restaurant. Charleston has been renovated since it's inception but there was never a time the food wasn't top notch. Innovate and delicious.
Some of the finest food and service in the area. The best sauces and selections of foods. Super wine list and pairings. High quality everything.
Great restaurant wonderful food and service never had a bad meal.
Baltimore's finest restaurant. Every detail is perfect, from the drinks, food, service, and decor. Pricy but worth a visit.
It has been several years since I ate there but it remains the best restaurant/meal/evening I have had to date.
Definitely a special occasion spot, never disappointed, exceptional food and service.
So here's the thing. The food wasn't bad. It was good. It just wasn't $500+ for two people good. My husband and I have been to exceptional Michelin star/bib gourmand restaurants in the United states, UK, and elsewhere. These places provide you with an excellent experience and fantastic food that we feel are worth the amount they charge. The bottom line for us was the service was nice, the food was good, but it was absolutely not worth how much we paid especially when compared to world class restaurants that charge nearly HALF the price for an unforgettable experience. Not for us.
The portions were very small and very rich. I ordered a filet mignon medium and got rare, The cheesecake for dessert was the size of an ice cube. The service was outstanding. Overall, it was nice; but I did not consider it a good value.
We hadn't been to the Charleston for many years. We were not disappointed. It was a wonderful experience. The food was great and the service was superb.
Baltimore institution. Wine bar with most delicious food in the world.
Fantastic private dinner for 16. I will return whenever I'm in Baltimore.
A top notch experience from start to finish!
Best Restaurant ever!! Wonderful experience all around!!! A must when visiting Baltimore.
One of my favorite restaurants! My wife and I frequent Charleston celebrating many momentous occasions and the New Year's menu is always extra special. Charleston is one the best restaurants in the United States. Everything is perfection. I have had the pleasure of dining here many times and it always amazes. The lamb I had here recently was the best preparation I have ever eaten. The truffle soup with foie gras I had recently is something I'll be thinking about for many months. Quiet honestly you just have to eat try the diversity of the menu to experience it. No review could describe quality and taste of food or does justice to all the flavors. You just have to eat it! A true culinary experience. The service is truly professional and friendly. No better way to start a new year.
Imho the only destination in Baltimore for true fine dining. Opt for the pairing menu to get the most out of most food and wine.
Dinner was outstanding from start to finish. Great service and great food.
Charleston is my favorite restaurant. My husband and I go at least three times a year. If available, I get the fried oysters (2 orders). The branzino fish was delicious and my husband enjoyed the black sea bass. I love the way the menu is listed and you just select what you want, no specified appetizers, entrees etc. The chef Cindy Wolf is a culinary genius and she makes sure she greets all of her guests. She knows my husband and I always come the Saturday before Christmas or the last Saturday of the year. The service is outstanding and you will have an excellent dining experience.
I was celebrating my 60th birthday and you made me feel so welcomed! Our meal was incredible and the staff really first rate!
Superlative in every respect
Food was amazing!!
It was my birthday and it was the most wonderful evening in every way. From the greeting when we walked in the door, to the service and of course the food. It was all fabulous.
Excellent as usual. I was not happy about paying $25.00 a piece for 2 glasses of champagne. I know I didn't ask for the price before I ordered it, but if I had i wouldn't have ordered it.
Creative menu artfully prepared, wonderful and knowledgeable servers, creative cocktails, spot-on service all the way start to finish!
For us, on a limited income, this restaurant is a bit expensive but worth it for our wedding anniversaries.
My wife celebrated her birthday and loved the restaurant, in all respects. The noise level was slightly high to due the proximity to a "group" event next door.
Wonderful as always
After trying many times to get a reservation we finally succeeded. It was well worth the wait, and we could tell why it was so difficult to get the reservation. The food is amazing, as is the wine list, the service, and the space. The reviews that say Charleston is one of the best restaurants in Maryland are correct.
As expected, all of the courses were superb. The small artichoke soup starter was splendid with its lemon accent. Cornmeal fried oysters were amazingly tender and tasty, as were the scallops and duck breast. The artichoke salad was creative and seasonal.
Perfect as always, and the wine pairings are a must!
What a great experience and amazing food. Would highly recommend.
Wonderful meal again! Many new items such as fried turbot, veal medallions, pasta with white truffles, and quail. All executed to perfection. Also the preparation of the foie gras with butternut squash and apples was the best I have ever had. Foie gras done perfectly and a complete harmony of flavours.
Service as actually better than usual, and it is usually excellent. However the staff were very attentive and friendly despite it being a busy Saturday night with a Christmas party going on in one of the rooms (which you wouldn't know if you hadn't been told).
The food was amazing, especially the lobster soup and smoked Norwegian salmon. The servers were extremely attentive and helpful. Loved the slow pace of the prix fixe menu. Will definitely splurge and go again.
We always enjoy dining at the Charleston. The cuisine and service are impeccable.
The atmosphere is awesome. The staff was very helpful. They explained every course. There wine recommendation was right on point. Free valet parking was an absolute pleasant surprise.
What a lovely restaurant! The food was amazing, the service attentive without being intrusive, and the wine pairings a treat.
Exceptional food with exceptional service. Was expensive but worth every dollar spent. Highly recommend the lobster soup and the seared sea scallop. The only part of my meal that wasn't quite perfect was the apple tart dessert but everything else was perfect and I say this after halving eaten at several michelin starred restaurants across the world.
