For some reason they did not have my Open Table reservation. This is the second time this has happened here. Waitress said she did not have access to Open Table info. Seems strange. Obviously someone knew we were there. Other than that will return.

The food, service, and environment exceeded my expectations. Will return upon my next business trip to Baltimore. Especially was that my wife and I were seated at a table in a cozy corner of the restaurant. Made the event particularly memorable. Service was A+.

It was pleasant. Wish the menu had just a little more to offer on the lighter side

We were staying in the hotel and had breakfast in the restaurant. Because we had a reservation we were given a cosy little room off the main dining room. Our server was SO friendly and helpful - really a lovely start to the day!

The Royal Sonesta Harbor Court never disappoints. I worked at the Harbor Court in its beginning days when Robert Taubman was the GM and Michael Rork was the Executive Chef. I was in Banquet Sales and enjoyed the many tastings we were asked to partake. This hotel is continued to keep up the tradition of Ambiance, Elegance, 5-Star Treatment, Superb Cuisine and Impeccable Service. This past Mother's Day Brunch was nothing short of amazing and palette-pleasing. There wasn't anything I could have wanted on the menu that the Explorer's Restaurant did not have. From Maryland's famous seafood creations of Snow Crab Legs and Crab Meat Benedict to carved delights of Turkey, Prime Rib and Ham, my guests and I were totally satisfied. Thank You !!!

George, the bartender makes the BEST Cosmo (real lime juice). The Crab flatbread is the Best ever and so is their Hamburger. Best kept secret. Try it some evening. :-)

Our waitress was friendly, accommodating and sweet. Perfect meal with two young children and she met every need. Would definitely go back again.

They seated us at a table for four in a cozy alcove overlooking the harbor--what could be better? My mother uses a large walker, which was easily accommodated, and the chairs were a good height so she didn't have to bend down. The staff was extremely helpful and pleasant. The food was carefully prepared and presented. This is a very pleasant place for a winter lunch.

Restaurant was empty on Jan 1. I know it's a bad day for restaurants but we were the only party there. Perhaps it was because the food was mediocre as was the service. The most positive thing was the view and the valet parking.

Although the food was excellent the wait was long for food to be brought out. The salad ordered was brought out with the main course and would have been better brought out earlier which would have bridged the gap between ordering and the meal.
