Great food and service. It will be totally awesome once the construction next door is finished. But don't let that hold you back from giving it a try.

Very disappointed with the recommended fish entree. Had to use the capers to make it somewhat edible.
Had it removed from the bill.
Unfortunately the date night was not that easy rectifiable.
Worst fish ever from a high end fish joint or any other place.
Not sure why this place is still in business.
I am just sorry that my experience was very sub par hope you heed my warning.

Ouzo Bay never disappoints. The food is wonderful, the service is always spot on. The front-of—the-house staff is very warm and friendly. We are regulars and we love dining at Ouzo Bay.

THIS WAS NOT THE FIRST TIME WE'VE BEEN TO OUZO BAY. The minute we walked in the door to the minute we left the staff was SPOT ON. Service was impeccable, the food even better, and the ambiance was perfect.
I can't tell you how wonderful things were.
All the the Atlas Group Restaurants are the same. PERFECTLY RUN, with wonderful food.

We were there for my husband's birthday. While Ouzo Bay is not a restaurant we can afford on an everyday occasion, it made a celebration very special. He doesn't eat meat and neither do I so the seafood selections are wonderful. The complimentary dessert was lovely. We both had a good time. He is such a good cook that it can be challenging to take him out as he isn't often impressed but he was at Ouzo Bay. We had a lovely time.

this restaurant is not for vegetarians, even with advance notice. i indicated my food preference when i made the rez. i was dining with 3 non-vegetarians and was told by other veg friends that they could make me a vegetarian entree if i asked. what i received was so boring and unimaginative-- linguini mostly with hard barely-cooked carrots in a thin tomato sauce that had too much cinnamon. clearly my request was a nuisance and given little if no thought. then they had the gall to charge $18 for it. i can't speak for the quality of my companions' meals, but "way overpriced" came up once or twice in the conversation. we all agreed that none of us needed to dine at ouzo bay again.

Far and away the best spot in Baltimore. The high energy compliments the best fresh seafood in town. Superb wine list that enhances the menu to a tee. We will be back. Hopefully the construction will be finished soon at the outdoor seating will be an option again.

I visited Ouzo Bay on a chilly wet night and was greeted warmly by both the hostess and a terrific bowl of Maryland crab soup. I received excellent advice on both wine and portion size and restaurant favorites. The branzino was excellent; the fish was perfectly cooked sitting atop a wonderful assortment of vegetables and potato with a delicious broth. I'm glad I took my server's advice on portion size as the fish was a generous serving, but I still saved room for Galataboureko. I love this dessert, but Ouzo Bay put its own spin on it and it was the best I've ever had.

Found Ouzo Bay about 2 years ago and have become regulars because the food is absolutely outstanding. The noise level can sometimes be a little louder than you would expect for a restaurant like this but it certainly isn't too much. The service is always excellent, they give you plenty of time to enjoy your drink, browse the menu, order some apps, then serve your dinner, and order desert. They in no way rush you, are always quick to refill your water and are very attentive. The food may be a bit pricey for some but it is absolutely worth it. Have tried several of the fish dishes along with the lamb, everything has been cooked and made to perfection. For desert, the Baclava is INSANE!!! Its a must if you like Baclava even a little. They also have an extensive selection of hard liquor, wine, and cocktails. If you like Old Fashions, try the Typhon, you'll be hooked.

I'll start with the two issues and then I can only praise our experience. The acoustics are pretty poor. It is very noisy and have a nice conversation with one's date. The other is completely out of the establishment's hands. Construction... :-(
Now... The service top notch! The staff was friendly, on top of their game and clearly customer focused. It was great to see and hear from the staff that they enjoy working at/for Ouzo. The food, again, was awesome! I have Celiac Disease and if I found something that wasn't already Gluten Free, they did everything they could to modify the offering to not just fit the bill but make the offering very appetizing! Very successful! My date also praised everything as well. The wine selection is also very nice. I strongly recommend Ouzo, hands down!

My first experience at Ouzo Bay, and first of many! Fun, upscale ambiance reminding you of the beautiful Greek countryside. Loved the Greek inspired menu. There were several entrees we wanted to try and the dishes passing by to nearby tables tempted us even more. My husband is gluten-free and had no problem finding options to choose from on the menu. Highly recommend to starting out with the grilled octopus and smoked eggplant salad. Although the zucchini chips looked delicious too! Service was attentive, and we were not rushed. We enjoyed a bottle of wine and a relaxing meal. Worth every penny!

The food quality was inconsistent. The fish while delicious was still full of bones. The baklava had a soggy crust, while lower priced baklava elsewhere can maintain a crispy crust. There were plenty of waitstaff, the restaurant was not full, and yet we had to request water, our plates cleared, etc. The mezza was the best part of the meal, but the hot items were room temperature at best.Lacked the attention to detail that would have made this a great experience.
