The wait staff seemed overwhelmed and the service was a bit spotty, but the food was very good. We will go back again for another try.

This place was just too expensive for what it was. I was last here years ago and the prices have gone up. It used to be barely worth the value, now it seems the portion sizes are smaller and the price has increased. The food was good (not fantastic) and the drink selection is very good.

Disappointed:

This is actually a review for the "new" Laurapinn, now known as Lagom. The new owner seems to be using the old Open Table account. Bad form. When we arrived, we wondered if we would have reservations or if they were lost in the ether. What is Lagom? Dear restauranteur: If I can't pronounce it and you have to explain the name, you've already lost me.

I booked this night as a special occasion for my wife and girls. Laurapinn used to be our favorite HdG restaurant. NOTE: Past tense. The prior short menus always hit the mark. Now it's more lengthy but uninspired. Okay, I've never seen fried chicken served on a cornbread waffle before but I don't look for waffles for dinner either.

I went for the pork chop. I was immediately suspicious when the waiter did not ask me how I wanted it cooked (medium well, thx). It was served with grilled asparagus (nice) & ON TOP OF a large bed of mashed sweet potatoes so sugared-up to be dessert-like; not to my liking. The pile of potatoes was so large that there wasn't room for cutting the meat. I pressed my knife into the chop and potatoes squished out toward the plate's edge. Then I almost tossed the slice onto my daughter's lap because the meat was too well done such that I couldn't get the fork out of it. Not tough but close.

BUT the food wasn't as bad as the service. We were seated in the quieter and quaint back room, where there are only about 8 tables. They had 3 wait staff serving customers. Two were attentive. Ours? I think he was hanging out at the bar. He poured water and walked away without asking if we'd like anything else. He came back 10 minutes later only to say he'd be back soon for our order. 5-10 minutes later we ordered, including a beer for me. It never came. Our water glasses weren't refilled until after the food arrived. Maybe he forgot the beer? Nope. It was on my bill; I had to ask him to deduct it. Needless to say, I didn't leave a nice tip.

While recently rebranded from the Laurrapin Grille to LAGOM the atmosphere, food, drinks and service were the same as always: outstanding. I have never had any complaints about this amazing restaurant and bar and I don't think I ever will. Thank you again for such a great experience!

First time going since new ownership and name change to Lagom. Was very impressed. Menu and Wine List expanded, with some of our old favorites (like lamb shank), but with a lot of new dishes, appetizers and expanded wine list. Went on Thursday night for 1/2 price bottles, and it was a bargain for the quality wine we had. Food was outstanding, as was our waiter whom kept us updated and made just the right amount of appearances at the table checking on us. Will be back again!

We always choose Laurrapin for dinner, especially when out of town friends come to visit. We consider it a place where the food is always great, menu creative and service on the spot. HOWEVER our New Year's Eve dinner was far from any of those things. The crab cakes were dry and served with cardboard french fries, really? My Kale salad was awful. The kale had been cooked somewhat, was not raw, and was tough to cut and chew and a little slimy as if it had been sitting all day. I expected crisp raw kale. The beets on the salad were RAW, so I don't know who put this together. Our guests had the lamb Bosso bucco, and although the lamb shank was delicious and tender, the accompanying vegetables were mush. What is going on? Sadly we will have to think twice before going to Laurrapin again....... Probably will, as it has always been a standout, but I'll be cautious.

Disappointing since being under new ownership. Mussels were bad. Drink orders were messed up. Zero effort went into the presentation of the entrees, both of which had their meat temps messed up... They’ve started allowing local artists to hang their artwork on the walls, and offer the work for sale, price tags and all... it’s bad art and it gives what was once a nice restaurant a shifty thrift store/bad coffee house vibe. Desserts were made by the legendary pastry chef Little Debbie, I’m nearly positive. Absolutely not worth the money.

Whole experience was disappointing. We had eaten here a few years ago and loved it. Menu was very limited and the crab cake should not be sold in Maryland. Tasted like the grill and was mushy.

Upon entering the restaurant, it reeked like an unclean restroom. Service was slow. Prime rib was 60% fat. When I asked for some au jus, the waiter had no idea what I was speaking of and brought me a small container of pan fat. We waited 10 minutes for the waiter to return to the table to take my credit card. Very disappointed birthday celebration for my wife.

Great birthday brunch/lunch event at Larrapin Grill. Food was great as was the service with knowledgeable staff offering spot-on recommendations when asked for same. Would recommend adding your lunch menu to the websites as some of our party were dubious about whether or not there would be lunch offerings when we made the reservation.

I was here on a business dinner with clients and I was embarrassed at the service and the food! We arrived at 6:15PM and received our first half hour later. We received only of the 2 appetizers we put in which was very unappetizing. Or dinner entrees arrived shortly thereafter which was probably 15 min after the order was placed and they came in COLD! My table order two Prime rib and the server came back saying they ran out and had only one. My table switched the order to rib eye and 2 of the 3 steaks at the table came in cold, blue and all the side were ice cold. We sent them back but came back rubbery over done and not the same sides as ordered. I will not return or take any more clients there. It was way too embarrassing!

It was packed the night we were there..and our server was a bit too busy and preoccupied. The food was good. Our table was near the kitchen...so combined with an already very loud restaurant...we heard the kitchen staff yelling out what they were cooking the entire time we were dining. It was fine...but we were, overall, disappointed.

Ours was a pre-theater dinner and our first time at the Laurrapin Grille. The menu selections were interesting and we shared a bowl of PEI mussels in a lemon garlic sauce for our appetizer. While the mussels were on the small side, they were very tasty and plenty for the both of us. My wife ordered their specialty burger and even though it was cooked more than she ordered, she was delighted with it. After my taste of it completely agreed. I was trying to make up my mind between three dishes and our waiter asked if I would trust him to make the selection for me. I said yes and was happy when he delivered a grilled salmon dish. It was perfectly cooked and the sweet mustard glaze was tremendous. It was served with roasted Brussels sprouts and vegetable rice. We didn't have room to order dessert and we will definitely return.
