Still the best in the business! Some neat new items on the menu. The artichoke appetizer is beautiful to see, fun to eat and delicious. What more could you ask? Not sure how long the crispy oysters will be around but they are really, really good and I will be sad when they go. The lentil soup was not just flavorful but the flavor was layered which is great in a soup. I just love the new salmon prep. I love salmon and am sometimes disappointed in the prep. This sweet chili glaze kicks it out of the ballpark. I didn't get the wasabi peas that are on the menu because i am not a big fan of super hot. Because Linwoods wants happy diners, I could have garlic mashed potatoes. Great meal, great cocktails, wrapped up with a bowl of fresh berries and warm chocolate sauce. Great way to enjoy a Saturday night

Everything about our dinner for two was delightful! Our food was delicious! We each ordered an appetizer, both were appealing and inventive. Clever chefs!
We shared one entree (no extra charge) which was plenty of food for us.
And, oh, the Manhattan that I drank was superb!
Our waiter, Alex, was courteous and professional and pleasant. Just right!
We want to go back again, as our dinner Thurs
day night was perfect in every way.

Linwoods is consistently great. "Al" was an exceptional server. My only complaint is that the restaurant still hasn't switched to a better ice cream such as Taharka's.

Everything was good as usual (except pomme frites were cold and hard) but I kind of feel that Linwood's is slipping a bit in terms of service. Our server didn't seem as professional as he could have been. He didn't ask if we wanted another glass of wine. I had to call to him as he was walking away. He wanted to take my plate while my husband was still eating. Our meal was finished about 55 min after we sat down and we had the check 5 min later and 5 min later as I was finishing my wine the server asked if everything was in order on the check. In other words we felt we were getting the bums rush for no reason. We sure do miss Carrie, the consummate professional!

I heard about this restaurant from Baltimore's Best Magazines. It had good reviews and I wanted to dine somewhere new for my husbands birthday. I made a reservation and when we arrived we were seated right away. I felt confident that Linwood's was a great restaurant to dine because it was crowded on a Wednesday evening which to me that's always a good sign. This was the first thing that amazed me. I ordered the Spinach salad and the Sea bass which was topped with crab salad, Potatoes and Haricot Verts.
My husband ordered the Crab soup, Caesar salad and Steak Au Poivre, Creamed Spinach and Pommes Frites. That's the 2nd thing that amazed me the sides were included with the entree. everywhere we dine we pay ala carte. The food was very good and the servers were very attentive. We will be dining with Linwood's again soon.

WOW what a beautiful night!!!! Can you say "5 Start treatment!" This is the place if you want to be treated like a Queen. Just ask for Anni. She will be our forever waitress as she greeted us with a smile and a personality that simply made you feel like you were receiving a SPA Treatment. She glided through the dining room with precision not missing a beat. She handled many tables with the most profession friendly service I've ever seen. She was "ON POINT"!! Kaitlyn the manger followed minutes behind making sure we were completely taken care of. Needless to say YES WE WERE!!! Above and beyond service. We can't wait to come back... Thanks Linwood's for making our Anniversary dinner a night we will never forget. See you soon!!

Linwoods is a regular spot for my husband and I. I love the lobster tempura but this time it was salty. I had the crab cake dinner and Linwoods crab cakes are among the best. My husband loved his selection from the seasonal fixed menu selections, beef tenderloins. The beef was tender and seasoned to perfection. Claudia the waitress was great and attended to our every need or want. It was a great evening ending with their delicious chocolate sundae. We will go back next month.

Still my favorite after 20 years. Get together with long time friends from out of town. Loads of sharing - appetizers of crab tacos, brussel sprout caesar, tuna tartare, oysters. All delish. Crab cake for our friends, sea bass for us.

Casual and elegant at the same time. If there was to be a criticism, could use more wines in a reasonable price range.

This is a GREAT restaurant and well worth the time and money.

Linwood's has been a Baltimore favorite for about a quarter century and it continues to be excellent in every way. The menu is always fresh with new and seasonal dishes. On this occasion, the caesar-influenced grilled brussel sprouts, done as a vegan dish, proved to be a wildly popular appetizer. We know because we saw this diszh on numerous other tables. Among the entres, the shrimp and grits was flavorful and filled with perfectly cooked shrimp, creamy grits and a creamy remoulade that was a delight. I purposely saved half of it and enjoyed the leftovers as lunch the next day. Grilled salmon was another well-received entree. Desserts were wonderful. My wife and I split the peanut butter crunch and wondered how one person could possibly eat the whole thing. The service and ambiance matched the food as always. Linwood's has been top notch for its entire history and there's no reason to change!

We traveld to Linwood's the other evening to celebrate my brother's birthday and bring my Dad from Hanover, PA to one of his very favorite places. As always, our service was superb but the food was not the quality that we are used to. Perhaps, it was because it was a Sunday...not sure. My Dad loves the french fries - they are always hot and crisp and flavorful. This time something was very different - they were soggy, and tasted as though some sort of gravy had been poured over them. Our calamari, which is another of our favorites, was lukewarm in temperature and my asparagus was sadly cool and overcooked. Per my Dad's request, I/we refrained from saying anything that evening given he did not want to be "displeasing". Needless to say, we will be back again but wanted to offer this feedback as an opportunity for ongoing quality review/improvement.
