Food was exquisite. Everything was perfectly prepared and served. The service was wonderful. Highly recommended
Wonderful evening, with great food, perfect service and great drinks.
Wonderful service and food. The pickled dirty martini was amazing.
very nice place to dine easy axcess for handicap persons
Dotty was a very professional server who gave great descriptions of the food. She was efficient and prompt to refill drinks and bring the check to allow us to get to the theatre on time.
The food was presented artfully on the plate and tasted even better than it looked. Great seasonal produce and exceptional flavors.
We ate al fresco and when the lights came on the ambiance was delightful.
Magdalena is a GEM.
A little pricey, but very good and worth a visit. As with most restaurants, the food is a little saltier than we prefer, but very good. Interesting entree curation and excellent presentation. Good service, and a nice space.
Friendly professional staff that start at valet and go through all diner staff. Great place. Wonderful creative food that is so tasty and every bite enjoyable. An absolute favorite!
The outside dining area/garden was very relaxing . The staff was attentive but not overbearing nor did they rush us through our delicious meal. We had the venison and the lamb and both were delicious.
Great food. Service was a little slow but I think it was just because we ordered right after a larger party.
Bistro cuisine with fresh and seasonal ingredients, elevated to high art (e.g., crispy skin bass with red peas). Impeccable service, gorgeous setting.
Amazing food. Very romantic atmosphere. I can't wait to go back for my next special occasion.
Lovely restaurant. Delicious food. Excellent service. Can’t wait to return.
The entire experience from beginning to end was simply delightful. Service was friendly, warm, efficient. Food tickled my palate with exquisiteness. Chef Scott Bacon nailed every bite. The halibut and lamb and mixed vegetables- perfection. All the accents just added to the unique flavors!!! Lovely!! Music so refreshing while dining and created memories and conversation. Awesome experience. Thank you The Ivy. Next experience a room and spa!!! Can't wait!!!
The food was cooked to perfection.and the service was stellar! I'm looking forward to my next visit.
Everything was wonderful! From fried oyster appetizer, halibut and lamb dinner through dessert…Smith Island Cake and chocolate cake…all outstanding!
Dotty was a terrific server. She guided us through the menu and took great care of us.
I can't really get what this place is trying to be. The decor, food, and music, all feel like a mishmash of ideas with no real focus or theme. The staff were great the cocktails were great, but the food was average and unmemorable for the price point.
Left nothing wanting for a magical anniversary dinner. Staff is incredibly knowledgeable & happy to share with you the art of their skill. All around fantastic!
Food and ambience was great. Our server Andrew was attentive and polite. The music during dinner was all classic tunes. Great place.
A wonderful place for a latish (8:30) Friday date night. Terrific food, warm service, attractive ambiemce.
Except for slow service, it was great.
Awesome croquettes, Halibut, and Sangria! Smith Island cake was divine as well
The best meal I've had in the city for the past two years. Everything was terrific- cocktails, food, service, ambience. I wholeheartedly recommend!
Lovely romantic restaurant with beautiful decor and phenomenal food. 5 stars all around! Looking forward to dining there again.
My friends from out-of-state and I were thoroughly impressed with the whole dining experience at Magdalena's. We were still talking about it long after the meal was over. This will be a memory we will cherish in the years to come. Thank you for your excellencent service.
First time I have returned since the pandemic. The overall quality remains the same.
Our meal at Magdalena was extraordinary. My partner and I are both restaurant industry professionals and we were blown away by the quality of the food and service. The atmosphere was warm and elegant, our server was knowledgeable and followed steps of service impeccably, the menu offerings were complex but approachable. Magdalena is Baltimore fine dining at its best. No overblown glitz or glam necessary - the experience speaks for itself.
This was our third visit to Magdalena in the past three years- we really should be going much more frequently. The food is always amazing- fresh, creative, portioned properly, balanced and delicate flavors and sauces intertwined with the food but not overpowering. The wine list is one of the best- I have to think of a special occasion to sample their large award-winning 100 point offerings. The service is impeccable- anticipating your every need and question. Truly a gem for Baltimore!
Once more Magdalena offers beautiful food with impeccable service.
This was the best meal that I have enjoyed in a long time. Everything was very original and absolutely delicious. Our waiter was great; very courteous and efficient. It was a wonderful experience all around!
Hands down best in Baltimore. Food, Ambience & Service. Highest recommendation!
This is a place where you can dress up or opt for more casual. The food was exceptional but the gem of the evening was our server Dominick. Personable, well versed with the wine list as well as the history of the property. Ambiance was intimate, sophisticated and elegant. Their crafted cocktails were refreshingly original. We’ll be back for certain.
Fantastic food and excellent service at Magdalena.
The staff was so welcoming and accommodating. All of the items on the menu were top-notch, perfect summertime food. I think it might be a new menu for them. Either way, I highly recommended it.
Consistently delicious and varied menu; top notch service; interesting and comfortable venue with personal touch.
My husband and I came here to celebrate our anniversary. We really enjoyed our scallops and strip steak with a side of parmesan and truffle frites. Both dishes were phenomenal! We were surprised by the anniversary cake that was brought out. The service was also impeccable. We’ll be back soon!
Overall lovely experience. We had a wonderful time with our family. My husband and father-in-law really enjoyed their scotch tasting. Thank you!
Everything was amazing! My only comment would be there was a smell from the trash in the alley. But it was only when we first got out there. The food, ambiance and service were all 10/10.
Great food that is creative and unique. Great service as well.
It was the perfect place to celebrate a special occasion.
Magdalena is a lovely, elegant, and delicious spot for a quiet, romantic dinner or festive celebration. It's a lovely setting ( we sat outside), the food is upscale and delicious, and the wait staff is friendly but professional. It is expensive, but we thought worth it.
Highly recommend it for a special occasion.
