Luna Del Sea is our families favorite restaurant in Baltimore. They really have the best crab cakes as well as great steak and other seafood options.

For the price listed the portion was very small. We ordered the stuffed shrimp with crab.

Drove down to Baltimore for the wknd for seafood. Went to Luna del Sea because I went a few yrs ago. Remember the ambiance to be a little better that last night. We got there sort of late (10:30) and we sat down and noticed that there was food on the floor that hadn't been picked up or swept up. Chairs were mix matched and it really didnt have an identity. We ordered shrimp and crab imperial and crab imperial which was very tasty. Lump crab meat was excellent but the only downfall to the meal was I was spitting out shells the entire meal. They need to do a better job cleaning the crab meat before serving the food to customers.

Overall I would go back and get it again. Nice location and sits right on the harbor with outdoor seating if it's nice out.

I would recommend this place for the food not the indoor ambiance.

Wouldn't split the check for our business group, which is annoying for a restaurant across from the convention center. Food quality was uneven--some items were excellent, while others were mediocre. The crab cakes were huge and tasted good but were full of shell fragments. Biggest issue was that entire restaurant was dirty. The floor, the bathroom, everything looked like it hadn't been cleaned and left me worrying how clean the kitchen could possibly be.

Restaurant was not crowded when we arrived (with a reservation) but everyone from the person who "greeted" us after we waited a few minutes for her to put away her cell phone to our waitress made us feel like we were an unwelcome intrusion. The server was clearly annoyed by any questions and took our food to the wrong table despite the fact that the other patrons were trying to tell her it wasn't their order. Crab cakes were fine but overall the food quality did not match the price.

This was our 2nd visit here and our last. The server was not very friendly and the main entree food was terrible. The only thing good was the hot crab dip appetizer. My filet was awful and the seafood bisque was average at best. I hate reviews like this and fortunately I don't write many, but I had to this time.

Nice people but poor food and only passable interior. They’re trying to be upscale, but it just didn’t work. My Fettuccini Shrimp Scampi was like a little shrimp in chicken gravy. Not at all like a scampi. One friend had meatballs, looked like the frozen kind from the grocery store, Mama Mia maybe? We won’t be going back. The way my husband described it “a dump.” Too bad...

Lots to like here. Great location, good food, ample portions, good friendly service. You pay a premium for the location though. We were there on a Saturday night - chose it because it was walk-able from our hotel. Was not very busy which made it quite enough and helped the service level. Good alternative to the chain places.

We were sat immediately. Our waiter was fantastic at greeting us quickly and was ready to answer any questions. The food seemed to come out fast as we were preoccupied with the good times we were having. The crab cakes were the size of a large baseball. It was made of lump crab meat holding hands. The wings, bruschetta, pasta, Crab Imperial, and lasagna were all equally amazing! I heard that Luna Del Sea has the best crab cakes in Maryland; now I know it to be true! Will definitely be back with more friends and family, now that I’ve got the hook-up for the BEST crab cakes in Maryland! Thanks again for a good times and great food!!

We had a bad feeling as soon as we walked in. It was loud and not a lot of tables full but a lot of staff. The manager greeted us in a sweatshirt. Our waitress took her time getting to us and was impolite and preoccupied. The wine was sour - as if it had been open a while. The meal, fettucini with shrimp was about 8 oz of pasta, a light yet bland sauce and four shrimp for $23. We tried letting the waitress know we had theater tickets and were giving her our timeline (75 minutes) as our salad arrived and she said: "not much I can do about that.....you'll probably be fine." No need to return to this place - dinner for 2 and two glasses of wine, $100.

It was Valentine's Day. Not too busy however, there was a private party in the back, so our service was super slow. Reservation at 8:45p. Seated at 8:45 pm. Received my appetizer soup at 9:40pm. Waiter was super nice and accommodating, but she just kept getting lost!

Overpriced food. I’ve had better elsewhere and cheaper. Once we were seated, several waitresses and waiters walked past the table without stopping to see if we have been helped. Took about 20 minutes for someone to recognize us. Bread wasn’t brought out until after our appetizer. Small portions of food but priced as if they’re large.

I set a reservation for my family and I to celebrate that night out together. I had heard good reviews from a colleague at work. It was a mixed atmosphere and that the front was more of a bar casual setting and the back was more of the restaurant. Our server disappeared after the appetizers to smoke out back. Our food came out half cold. The side dish of broccoli that I ordered came out cold, on a hot plate, with a large chunk cut out as if the broccoli had been in bad shape and they tried to make it look better. I sent the broccoli back, and again came out cold, on a hot plate and now with butter on it. I was so angry that I stopped asking for anything other than the bill. It was a Friday night, so you'd think they would have their A-team working. Also, have way through the meal, there was someone jack hammering behind the wall. I was so disappointed. What I had hoped would be a celebration was a TERRIBLE experience and my family and I will never go back.

I was given an out of date menu with prices marked lower. When I questioned the prices, I was given the new menu. The food was ok, but very expensive for what you got. Paid $4.00 for a piece of broccoli. We were dining before a show and were very disappointed in the food and the prices. Don’t plan on returning.
