Maggie's (just like when it was Chameleon Cafe) never fails. Great food, great service. Great specialty cocktails. What more is there to say?
Maggie's farm does have outdoor dining, but the restaurant was slow this summer evening, so rather than being the only diners there,we opted for the bustling dining room, pleasant but a little cramped. In the interest of full disclosure: we normally avoid meat, but at Maggie's that's not easy: They really like their pork, in various disguises. So we thoroughly enjoyed the crispy Brussels sprouts -- sans bacon, but still cooked in pork fat. And the red trout came with chunks of chorizo as part of the mixed veggies. Both it and the black-tipped shark special were very tasty, though, with ingenious use of seasonal vegetables and reductions. Service was attentive, prices reasonable, so we'll be back.
My dinner at Maggie's Farm was probably one of the best I've had in the US. Everything about it, from the fried green tomatoes to the yummy chocolate pudding dessert, was outstanding. I highly recommend this restaurant.
I went here first for restaurant week and had a wonderful experience. The food still makes my mouth water when I think about it and the staff was very attentive and friendly. I am very excited to have discovered this place and plan to make many more visits.
Service was fantastic with great suggestions, every single dish was incredible, and the drinks were creative. One thing we loved was that every dish had some sort of interesting but not overpowering twist to it. So the brussel sprouts had guanciale instead of bacon and a few sliced grapes for contrast. The pork milanese had a salami bolognese sauce under it and local corn. The bouillabaisse had small crunchy slices of fennel and spring onions. Nothing that would take away focus on the main ingredient, but just enough to add a new depth to the dish and to surprise us foodies. The room itself is a little boring, but certainly pleasant, and who cares about the lighting or decorations? Foodies and locavores: this is the place you want.
Amazing and creative drinks. The food is lick your plate clean good.
We took advantage of the Baltimore Restaurant Week menu - I had the fried green tomatoes, the butcher's steak and the affogato (salted caramel ice cream with espresso and biscotti) and my husband had the crispy brussels sprouts, pork milanese and the local berry pound cake. We were disappointed that the dark chocolate puddin cake wasn't available. Everything was just excellent, but the volume was a little loud, especially from the large table of birthday revelers directly behind my husband, which seemed to have the loudest guy sitting in a "hot spot" that just amplified his voice louder than anyone else's. That was our only quibble with the place. Service was great. We'll be back!
Had a great dinner at Maggie's Farm. Menu is creative & the food is outstanding. Service is also outstanding--Matthew took very good care of us!
Excellent service. Adventurous, delicious food. Wouldn't recommend to a vegetarian. Definitely a meat lovers paradise.
Been there three times now. Loved almost everything each time, except I prefer hard ice cream. Am I being picky? Brunch was seriously great!
Took advantage of Baltimore Restaurant Week to finally visit Maggie's Farm. The food and drinks were both excellent, with highlights being the fried green tomatoes for me and the butcher's steak for one of my dining companions. Everything was thoughtful and flavorful, and the service was at a nice calm pace. We loved it, and will definitely be returning.
Wife and I dined here for our 3rd anniversary. The food was excellent. This was one of the best dinners I've had in a long time. You must visit this place if you haven't yet.
The AC was on full blast---perhaps for the wait staff who were rushing around busily. I was cold despite my tee shirt, a tennis shirt on top, then a casual cotton dress shirt & finally wearing a velour sweat jacket. This distracted from my dining experience.
I did that Baltimore Week special, & they cut down the appetizer from the normal two fried oyster bun to one----booo! The entrée of the salmon was OK & the eldente vegetables on the same plate were tasty. Again a fairly small portion. The desert was just OK. For Baltimore week experience a place should shine---not scrimp!
My husband and I liked the Chameleon and have very much enjoyed Maggie's Farm since its inception. This most recent visit was especially good. We like to sit outside, even if the view is Harford Rd and/or Safeway; their outdoor dining area is attractive and comfortable. Both our meals were particularly good, highlighted by a salad of a variety of delicious heirloom tomatoes, well and simply dressed. The salad was the epitome of fine farm to table dining! We also have always appreciated the birthday "gift" they send.
Went for restaurant week; service spotty at best; felt rushed. food ok nothing to rave about and was recommended by a Baltimore chef
