Date Night with wife and we both enjoyed our evening with all the professional service provided... from the valet to the host and servers. Food & drinks were appetizing.
Double date night with another couple, and I cannot say enough about this meal. All four of us devoured our food. We will be back and plan to stay at the hotel—one of the best meals I have had in quite some time. Bravo!
I received a warm welcome from every staff member I encountered.
I put a note in my reservation about being gluten-free; my waiter was prepared to guide me through the menu. I was even able to enjoy a basket of gluten free bread!
I prefer my meat well-done. My NY strip was tender and delicious.
I cleaned every plate from appetizer to dessert. I look forward to going back soon.
This is an upper level restaurant, clearly one of Baltimore's few best, with prices to match. All preparations were of high level -- no complaints, or even quiet whines. Three of us had been guests there two weeks before, and our waitress remembered our pre dinner drinks and what she had served and to whom -- not necessary for good service, but it shows some attention and lends a point of amusement. We would highly recommend M, but warn those tempted to try it that they must be aware of the non-trivial cost.
Good food and good service.
Chef Scott’s food is delicious. Especially enjoyed our delicata squash and whitefish croquette appetizers. Our hand cut tagliatelle and pepper crusted venison entrees were very good. The squash casserole with the venison was excellent. Chef Scott is a master with vegetables.
The almond cake dessert was incredible and a great way to complete our anniversary dinner.
Andrew and the rest of the service staff were great as usual - warm, responsive and efficient. Andrew’s wine recommendations are always spot on.
Magdalena is our favorite restaurant and will continue to be with Chef Scott now at the helm.
I have known about Magdalena for a long time, but this was my first time there. I'll be back for sure.
The food was excellently paired and the service was great
Lovely atmosphere. Great music. Exceptional service.
Elegant restaurant with excellent food. Portions were small however.
Great romantic spot for anniversary
Exceeded our expectations! What a hidden gem in Baltimore!
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!
Cute place great food!
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!
