My boyfriend and I ate at Phillips during Baltimore Restaurant Week. We were very disappointed with portions of our meal. My boyfriend’s steak was rare, even though he asked for medium. And the rolls and chocolate cake were very stale.

Phillips is overpriced .
If your going to have an overpriced menu the menu should match.
I went with my family they wanted crab cakes
I don’t eat them
There is very limited selection
And nothing that was worth the price.

The server was very attentive to us which is rare these days. He is the only reason I chose to not give zero stars. This was an anniversary dinner for my wife and I and we were hoping for some really awesome food. The atmosphere was pretty quiet and nice for the occasion. We ordered the crab dip as an appetizer which was pretty good. I ordered a Bloody Mary from the bar which was $12. The drink itself was not bad but the garnish on the drink was almost rancid. It included a shrimp, olive, jalapeño, cheese cube and maybe some salami. The cheese tasted awful, the salami had a white color to it and the shrimp was disgusting. I did order another one and the garnish was equally bad but the drink itself was ok. For our entree, we had the bake for two. It had zero seasoning on it so I assumed the kitchen staff just steamed it. My lobster was cold to the touch and the snow crab cluster I got was bad. The legs looked big but the meat inside was very small and didn’t have a good taste to it. I tried my wife’s cluster and it was very good and had the sweet taste that it should. We did use the valet parking at the restaurant and honestly, after spending $220 in the restaurant including the tip. I would expect them to validate the parking completely and not just give discounted valet parking. I don’t mind paying for good food and good service but the food was not remotely good for the money I spent. Next time, I will go to Cheesecake Factory or Stoney River.

I had the Ultimate Crab Cake and my wife had the Broiled Seafood Platter Deluxe. The food was a little pricey but very good. My crab cake and crab mac and cheese was excellent! Our only disappointment was the fish on the Broiled Platter; it had a bland flavor. We will return the next time we're in Baltimore.

This place was a complete disappointment. The drinks are overpriced and quite unsatifying. The food was at best average and not worth expense. My steak which I ordered well done, came to me medium. To make matters worse, waiter took it back three times but not done correctly. Needless to say, we won’t be back.

My husband and I went to Philips because it was recommended to us. We were a little taken back because of the prices but thought to just go with it. We ordered the crab mac and cheese and crab cake and it was amazing! Definitely worth the price you pay. I tried a cheaper crab mac and cheese at a different place and it was not as good. Spend the extra money and get good food.

We went to Phillips for our anniversary. I thought (my mistake) the restaurant was more upscale than it is, although the food was good. My wife and I were dressed up and she expected something more fancy (we were visiting, although I lived in Baltimore 35 years ago). In my opinion, the crab cakes were well prepared, but somewhat underseasoned.

OK and very expensive. I'm not sure why I had high expectations but I did. I ordered the 2nd cheapest thing on the entree menu, a salad and a glass of regular wine and still ended up with $50 for one person. While fine, the $10 wedge salad was small, the Shrimp, while cooked well, tasted just like the fries, and the by the glass wine list was totally pedestrian and included exactly the same wines I'd find at Applebe's. Phillips should be better than that. My server was excellent and working hard.

Went because they had a gluten free crab cake, which they do, and they seem knowledgeable about gluten allergies. However, our crab cakes had a lot of shell (one gluten free, one regular), and the roast potatoes were undercooked. The mash potatoes were really good, and the creme brûlée was good too. We also had the deviled eggs as an appetizer, and they were great. All in all, we expected more from a famous restaurant like this.
