Very dissapointing ! 1 sever for the entire restaurant meant we didn’t get drinks for 20 minutes and didn’t even get to place an appetizer order for 30 minutes. Crab cakes were good, but not the best we had in Baltimore. The food was just mediocre; scallops had no sear whatsoever and no taste. Cioppino broth was wonderful but the seafood very bland . Not the quality of restaurant or food we expected.
Everything about the place was great from the bread in the beginning to entrees!
I was looking forward to dining at this restaurant because of a recommendation. I ordered the recommended smoked crab cake and found it tasty and full of lump. I have tasted better however. My husband ordered the lamb chop which came out with a sauce that had an off putting flavor. Unfortunately, it was on all of the chops. What we found difficult to ignore was when the chef/owner told a couple who changed there mind about eating after looking at the menu that they had to pay for her open table fee. What??!
Excellent, eclectic American menu with heavy seafood presence.
This is an eclectic choice. The food was also hit and miss. Soups were very good but my main dish came with uncooked rice and fish was too dry. My wife's shrimp and grits was better.
I love this place. Food is always excellent. This is the third time my book/show group has availed ourselves of the space to enjoy a great dinner and discuss our book/play.
We were fortunate to arrive later in the evening when the restaurant was almost empty so we got a lot of personal attention from both the chef/owner and the server/cook. Everything was fresh, cooked to order and delicious!
Friends from out of town
1st time at this restaurant, bit not the last. The food was very good and the service was excellent. Will definitely go back.
I must admit, we were a bit surprised there was no one else dining at 7:30 on a Thursday night, but it was worth trying after all. That being said, it started to get busy at 8:30-9:00 while we were finishing up dinner.
The menu was very creative and everything we tried was really good. The pumpkin pierogies in a gorgonzola cream sauce was the best menu item we had. The bread was excellent and we used some of it to sop up that great gorgonzola cream sauce left over in the pieriogi dish!
We had only two things that we felt needed attention. The restaurant inside smelled of heavy grease, most likely due to not enough ventilation. And they really need to do some upgrading as far as the interior is concerned, it was a bit rough around the edges. The exterior also could use some repairs as far as the windows and exterior of the building itself.
Plan to spend a few hours here. The small kitchen located in the rear of the dining room moves slower than larger kitchens. Do not skip dessert or the smoked crab cakes.
We really liked Pierpoint - new twist on crab cakes, good scotch selection, small and intimate. Our server was a dream. A bit strange to be pointed to our table when we walked in rather than being taken to our table but no biggie. A new place on my fabulous eating places in Fells Point. Highly recommend it.
Great smoked crab cakes! Fruit
Flies and undercooked fries ruined it for me. They took off a dollar.......
Mary and Brooke did an awesome job! Great service with a warm friendly way about them.
Amazing food in a cute local establishment!
When you first walk in you think hmmm... but once you starting eating you think WOW... definitely would go back in the future
Five of us headed to Pierpoint for dinner Friday - two for the first time. It did not disappoint! The chef came to our table to visit and shared some wonderful stories. The food was all locally sourced and DELICIOUS! The price for an appetizer, wine and dessert was very, very reasonable
The Chef at Pierpoint always hits it out of the park.
We have always enjoyed our meals here. Food is fresh and a nice friendly atmosphere.
My new favorite restaurant for crabcakes, I'm a Baltimore girl and like almost all types, but these are my new favorite. Chef Longo rocks!
Once we got past the "ambiance" we were glad that we stayed to eat. Needs a decor update, brighter lighting, just a general facelift, as the environment does not do justice to the good food served here.
The crab cake (smoked) was, as promised, delicious, and worth the visit all by itself. My scallops were very nicely done, and the accompanying pasta sides were very tasty, though a bit over sauced. Still, we left somewhat amazed that a tired and unassuming restaurant could serve such good food. Owner/chef was delightful and justifiably proud of her food.
The regular crab cakes are very good, but the smoked crab cakes are beyond. Everything we had was delicious, including the mixed nut tart for dessert. The server was just the right amount of attentive. Highly recommend!
We ordered halibut fish and my husband asked if he could exchange it and the manager/chef started yelling at the waitress. All our appetizers were great. The four of us ordered main course meals as well. Out of 4 appetizers and 4 meals , we asked to exchange one meal that had no flavor and the owner went crazy. She started going on and on about how expensive that fish was. It was an embarrassing and exhausting experience. We will never return. Our server was extremely kind and kept apologizing for the owners behavior
Crab cakes were delicious and I am not a huge crab cake fan.
Felt like our own private dining room, wasn't very busy for a Saturday evening.
Decor is a little tired but a great dinner and prepared by Nancy Longo, not many owners/chefs cook the entrees anymore.
Bread is delicious. Balto
I love Pierpoint and especially Nancy. I haven't been there in a year. I live in north Baltimore, but I just love it when opportunity rises. We went to the FPCT and Pierpoint is so close by. Plus they have parking. We were early and sat at the bar and Nancy poured out the wine. I called another friend who joined us since we had to wait until the official opening at 5 to be seated. My lamb chops were mouthwatering delicious ad OMG the potatoes! One friend had the rockfish which she loved and the other, the braised short ribs with pasta. No trouble scoffing them up. I have to sign up one of these days for the cooking lessons. They also honored my $10 coupon.
Best meal I had in Baltimore while there for many months
Loved it! Food was fantastic! Server was hilarious and gave us perfect attention! Loved trying some unique things on the menu!! Definitely worth it!!!!
Very disappointed. This used to be our go-to restaurant in Baltimore, but that was some time ago. Things just ain't what they used to be. I hope it was just an off night, otherwise what a shame.
It was a rainy night, and we used taxi service to get to the restaurant from the hotel. I had traveled from NJ to Baltimore for the crab cakes as featured in the Coastal Living Magazine.
We arrived to a dark closed restaurant. We were not notified of the closure even though we had reservations. So disappointed.
Fantastic food. You have to wait a bit (not a bad thing) given the skeleton staff, but the food is ALWAYS really good here.
As always, an excellent meal. Never otherwise in Nancy Longo's under-appreciated gem.
Food was excellent and wait staff was very friendly. This is a small place and we were one of only a handful of customers on a Sunday evening. The chef made the rounds several times and spoke with all of the customers. Very relaxed atmosphere.
We LOVED this restaurant! Not sure why we have never tried it before since we lived right down the street! Absolutely wonderful food, wine and service!! We will definitely be frequenting Pier Point more often--thanks for a great evening!
Crabcakes were fabulous. The smoked crabcakes were a unique variation to a traditional item.
The curry mussels are always fantastic! I've looked for duplicates but no one has come close...
This is my third time at Pierpoint. We had our book club here after seeing the play at Fells Point Corner Theater. It never disappoints. All seven of us raved about our meals. I got the lamb chops and they were delicious--medium rare. They opened just because we had reserved 7 seats on Open Table. It was Superbowl Sunday. We had a lively discussion of our book and the play over a wonderful dinner. Couldn't ask for more.
We really enjoyed our dinner for two at Pierpoint. The food was excellent, our wine was memorable and the ability to have a conversation over dinner was refreshing. Overall its a place we have added to our list of places to go back to.
saturday night, 6:30, 3 of us. as usual, the food quality was very good, and somehow, the place was not full; this is a good thing for me, because the food comes faster~! well, not that fast, but this ain't McDonald's either.
the server, Annie was great. and the chef (not Nancy but someone who we have seen there in other visits) came to every table to ask how everything was. and the flavors were good, let there be no doubt.
my only complaint, especially considering that the place was essentially empty (only one other table at all times), is that my food was pretty much lukewarm/room temp. i don't appreciate very hot (or cold) food anyway, but it was too cool even for me. my point is of course that everything needs to come out at the same time (it did), and at the appropriate temp (it did not). this did not happen, but it wasn't a disaster, and it won't stop me from coming back, or recommending the place, but it was a little disappointing.
this restaurant is not inexpensive, at all, so having a black cod dish come out room temp, and of course continuing to cool even more while eating, is as I said a disappointment.
We went on New Years Eve for dinner, it was one of the few places left in the city that we were able to get a reservation at. Luckily we were in no hurry. Service altho friendly was extremely slow, and there was no reason- there were only about 3 other tables filled. For a prime location on New year's Eve that speaks volumes. The smoked crab cake appetizer was excellent, but that was about it. The rest of the food, which took probably a full hour after ordering to come out, was marginal, not bad but certainly not great. We will not return.
