Immediately upon walking in I remember that this place was the old Mellies which I loved hands down. Having been to Puerto Rico recently for vacation I was expecting more flavorful dishes such as a variety of Mofongo or such. I had the Paella and it was under seasoned over cooked and underwhelming at best. Great waitress but the food was a let down and overpriced.
Second or third time here -- we have a group with food sensitivities, so this is a great choice. Sophisticated menu, delicious food, great service. One complaint -- and thankfully this was toward the end of our meal -- there was a private party downstairs and the microphone was so loud it killed any remaining conversation and we hurried to leave. The manager should have been on top of that buzz kill.
Delicious, creative cuisine. A gem for gluten free dining.
You allowed a reservation for 330 pm and closed the kitchen at 3pm. Had to find somewhere else to go. Don’t allow reservations for times they don’t serve food.
Very mixed. Great reviews by critics and friends. Perhaps it was a bad night. While our server was as accommodating as humanly possible the food was not as good as expected. A huge piece of charred tuna was nearly impossible to cut because of the mass of connective tissues. That dinner was comped when left uneaten. Meat empanadas has a good taste but appeared past their prime. We will try again but that meal was not a great experience.
While the food was absolutely delicious at points south Latin kitchen, the service left much to be desired. Waited 45 minutes for our raw appetizer to come out and was often found with an empty wine glass—I found myself ordering glasses of wine preemptively since they were taking so long to get another glass.
I found the food very good and tasty but short of excellent. Two of us had the steak which were correctly cooked. But it was a bit chewy. The steak and potatoes were on the greasy side. They need to drain the fried potatoes much more which made the entire plate greasy. Almost if they were spooned on the plate straight from a deep fryer.
Staff was attentive, but could have been more engaging and knowledgeable about the food and drink options. Food was prepared well and as expected. It's great to have restaurant with a solid gluten free menu, so thank you! overall it was a good experience.
Food and drinks were delicious! Beautiful restaurant. Awesome service. I appreciate the gluten free menu.
It was my first time eating at Point South. I was excited to eat there because my fiancee has celiac disease, so we usually have trouble finding a strict gluten-free menu. The food was great, but the service was slow due to the fact the drag brunch was going on below. In all fairness, they did call me ahead of time to let me know about the drag show and they did say it was going to be loud, but we didn't exactly know how loud. We could barely hear each other shouting over the music from downstairs. I would definitely go back there, but not on Sundays.
We waited for 2 hours for our meal and they still hadn't brought the main course. It wasn't just us. The table next to us had the same issue. The restaurant said that they were short in the kitchen. We had only made our reservation late the same afternoon. They should not have accepted our reservation or at least told us when we arrived of the issue. There was no excuse for the poor service we received. Also, the bathroom was flooded. We had been previously and had enjoyed our food. But this experience has ensured that we will never be back.
We went to Points South during restaurant week. We picked the restaurant based on the menu they had versus some of the other Latin cuisine restaurants. Each course was well presented and delicious. My husband and I both got different items off the fixed menu and everything was full of flavor and tender and juicy. For it being a busy night, we also had good, friendly service. The drinks were good and were described to us before we chose them. We will definitely go back.
The food was an adventure with some unique taste. My spouse mostly eats vegan and gluten free. They explained everything on the menu, had a variety that met her dietary needs. plus a couple of specials for restaurant week. The avocado salad was tasty with a vinaigrette twang and the Calamari was lightly battered and had the right crispness.Sorry I cannot name the spicy shrimp rice and seafood dish we had but it was not over seasoned and had a slight amount of kick to it. We ended the meal with ice cream and Mexican cheese cake that was just as tasty and just enough to put our stomach on full. Oh I forgot to mention the Yucca chips and salsa selection at the beginning of the meal. the avocado salsa was good but the chips made from the Yucca plant were the hit for me (taste like potato chips that were very thin crispy and seasoned)
My friends and I visited during Restaurant Week, August 2018. We were unable to reach restaurant staff via phone for two days to inquire about special Restaurant Week menus - mailbox was “full”. Our server was both friendly and knowledgeable. However, the service was extremely slow. Two of us had to leave to get back to work without eating. We requested that our meals be packaged for carry out. If you’re leisurely enjoying the day with no time restraints, this is a great place to dine. The food was really good!
AMAZING FOOD, AWESOME SERVICE! THE FOOD IS AWESOME! FROM THE YUCCA CHIPS TO THE SHRIMP CEVICHE, THE FISH AND STEAK WERE DELECTABLE!
I was pleasantly surprised with this restaurant. Being from Miami I didn't not have high expectations for a Latin restaurant in Baltimore but while some things may not have been very traditional the flavors were amazing and the food was well seasoned. The fact that it was gluten free was just such an added bonus. It was the best plan e we have eaten at while visiting the city.
Excellent service and wonderful food. I had their signature cocktail which was to die for. I will be back
Our waitress was awesome and she was prepped about the food allergies at the table.
The atmosphere was good but the restaurant was empty. The food selection was very limited and very expensive. Service was not attentive and the server slapped the desert menu down before 2 people were finished eating.
Their strengths are definitely the service and the atmosphere. The food is okay to good, though not quite great. They also have a good amount of outdoor dining spaces for that neighborhood.
Points South makes gluten free easy, fun and tasty!
Brunch was awesome!
We had a delicious dinner.
We come here often for all of the great food and drinks. It’s great to be able to get a bunch of small plates or a full entree. We’ve liked every dish we’ve tried, but our favorites are the Peruvian Potatoes, the Beef Tartare and the fish tacos. We always love the Margaritas with mezcal too! My girlfriend has Celiac so the entire restaurant being gluten free is a huge plus for us, there are very few places we can go and feel safe like we can here.
I’ve been a few times to Points South and have always left impressed and satisfied with the food, service and overall experience. The entire restaurant is gluten-free, including some delicious desserts like the chocolate volcano cake with caramel ice cream! The restaurant also hosts some really fun events.
We went for the drag mother's day brunch. Me and my mom had an amazing time. The crowd was live and energetic. The ladies/performers were amazing. The good was great. The only problem was we were seated at the end by the buffet and the performers didn't pay our section too much attention. We had to get up and stand In front of another table to see the performance or to give our money. Other than that it was amazing. The ladies were polite. Beyonce was amazing. She was so nice and made sure she gave us a performance while we were in the corner. We took plenty of pics with the ladies. The vibe was amazing. Looking forward to bingo night.
Great restaurant with fantastic food! Cocktails are killer.
The food was okay. There were some high points like the crispy fresch cheese and the lamb ribs. The rest was okay. The mojito was way too sweet.
This was our first visit. Valet is a little schizophrenic. Everything we ordered was appetizing and very tasty. We were adjacent to a very energetic and precise server. Would come back here on a better weather night.
A rare, gluten free menu, that celiacs and everyone else can enjoy. Plus, celiacs can share everything on the menu which is extremely unusual.
We live in Fells Point and have many dining options. Point South is our favorite restaurant for taking out of town guests. The dishes are unique and delicious and the service is great.
Excellent, inventive food combined with attentive service and a nice atmosphere. I'm still thinking about the seared tuna served over yucca gnocchi. It was amazing.
The food was excellent, we were just disappointed in the noise level, in such small quarters of the room. It was very disruptive & took away from the ambiance & enjoying dinner. Service was a little slow. The server, on a couple occasions told us she was bringing us our drink & when she returned, she was tending others & realized we were waiting. It was our anniversary weekend & wanted something a little different. Too bad it came with quite a bit of rowdiness.
The restaurant was loud, tacos were not offered on the dinner menu, New York strip was sold out, and the kitchen was very backed up. That said, the food was quite good. The manager acknowledged that the food was slow, so they took good care of us in the end.
We went there this past Saturday and were so disappointed. The service was terrible. Our waitress kept forgetting to put items in but would blame "the backed up bar"...meanwhile we saw every other table around us getting drinks. She also forgot to put our children's order in despite us ordering theirs early as a preemptive measure to increase their ability to sit still. Our children's fries were limp and greasy. Their papusas while tasty, were also dripping with grease from the cheese. The crab and avocado salad tasted like tuna fish and was way overpriced at $18. My queso fundido had a film on it. My husband said that his shrimp was good but that it wasn't anything special. All the plates came out steaming hot as if they had been under the warmers forever prior to them being delivered to us. It was a busy night and they did not seem to be appropriately staffed for a Saturday when a festival was happening. There were 3 hosts but they were in desperate need of more wait staff. Overall, I am very disappointed in our meal. We were excited to try some place new but we will not be back again.
We all had a great time. The food was outstanding, especially the beautiful whole red snapper and the grilled octopus. The service was friendly and attentive. The ginger pear bourbon cocktail was a hit! This is a not-to-be-missed restaurant.
Food, once served was great. Service took longer than expected. Restaurant was not packed but we waited over 40 minutes for our entrees.
There was a private party downstairs last night and it was pretty loud. It was difficult to get to and from the restrooms as nobody could hear you. The food and drinks were still very good
It's a gem: great service, food, drinks and ambience. Creative and delicious food, and you would never even realize it's all gluten free because the chefs have done such an amazing job with the menu.
This place was absolutely delicious. Everything we order was so good. We had noted on our reservations that it was someone's birthday and when we arrived there was a sign on our table wishing the birthday person a happy birthday! They also put a candle on the dessert for the birthday girl and wrote in chocolate Feliz compleanos which was a cute little way to help us celebrate. Would definitely recommend trying this adorable Latin restaurant in the heart of Fells Point.
