The service was great and the view was wonderful. The food was not worth the price unfortunately.
We had an excellent seat outside with a beautiful view of the harbor. We ordered the octopus, fried green tomatoes and entrees - Hook and Line (sea bass) and cauliflower tacos. The portion sizes were hearty but not too big. We left full but not “couldn’t walk full”. The octopus had great flavor and seasoning along with side potatoes. The tacos had a soft tortilla on the outside and a hard taco on the inside. Good texture and complemented the crunchy cauliflower. Cocktails included Peach Bellini and old fashioned. Would go back.
My partner and I came to celebrate our anniversary and this will be my final time dining at Ampersea. From my salad coming out with “cotton” on it; to being told they do not offer replates when an item comes from the kitchen very visibly contaminated; to the extremely dirty plate my lobster roll was set upon and the manager being rude. I was extremely disappointed in the service I received at what used to be a great place to dine. Not to mention this month is a highlight to the food and safety standards all restaurants should be upholding day to day; I was very dismayed that an establishment I once raved over would even conduct themselves in such a manner. The only saving grace of the evening was the bartender whose service was amazing despite the shortcomings of the manager.
Food was delicious, setting was beautiful, service was decent!
If going for a waterfront view, can’t beat the outdoor dining here! Food was not to our taste. Pricey but quality is there.
Outstanding food and the ambiance is perfectly serene sitting on the water. Perfect for girls brunch, date lunch/brunch. High recommend
Ampersea was amazing! We went for my bf’s birthday and it was a great choice! The view was beautiful and the food was great! The drinks are a little overpriced, but overall the experience was lovely!
Awesome ambiance, we say by the water and it was so relaxing and fulfilling. The food came out and stayed hot the entire time. The server was attentive, which was appreciated. Bring a empty stomach and a full wallet cuz you'll need it!
The Sea Bass entre had to be one of the very best fish dinners I’ve ever had.
Overall I enjoyed myself..The food was ok and so is the restaurant itself. There's not a lot on the menu. I got the crab cake and it wasn't horrible and it wasn't the best I've had.The server was nice. The dining are seems rather small and the decor was just plain. BUT I would recommend this place to at least try
Good food and service at a great location.
The food here was really subpar but the view is excellent
Loved the friendly atmosphere and the food was absolutely amazing! I enjoyed the food presentation as well. Definitely coming back in the future!
Good service and good food. Loved the view from the outdoor seating
I love the location and restaurant but the food needs more seasoning.
Never been treated so rude. I will not go back. We called ahead to tell them we had 2 reservations because open table would not let us book any table larger then 4 people and we were a party of 6 celebrating a family birthday. We requested to be seated together. The man on the phone said he could not do that we may have to seat us on other sides of the resturant. When someone in the background said he won't seat us together. He starts yelling at me won't is a dirty word. .we arrive 5 min later at the resturant and the place is almost empty only 2 tables inside and 3 table outside were occupied. Hostess refuses to seat us together saying it will cost the resturant money to push two tables together. My sister points out the resturant is almost empty . Hostess says outside tables may have more people later in the morning. We never requested to sit outside. Finally as were going to walk away my sister points out a table for 2 and a table for 4 right next to each other and we allowed to sit at those table. The entire time we were there only four tables were occupied inside the resturant. The waiter was good and the food good.
Had an amazing time!! Food was good drinks was on point!!
Great great great
Drunks were horrible had to send back 2 times.Bteakfast burrito was all egg just a little piece of meat.They should call it a egg burrito. Not impressed at all.
Wonderful place will be back again soon ! Awesome time
The servers were the best polite professional and was always available at hand
Great restaurant. The food and service was excellent. The location was amazing.
Great service. Good food, friendly staff, enjoyed myself
Went here for date night on a Thursday. The food and the ambiance was perfect. Or server was nice too but took a long time to wait on us.
Fried green tomato appetizer and lobster roll are must haves!!
Service and Food was great!
My husband and I loved this place. The weather was beautiful and the atmosphere was gorgeous and the Service was great. The food was tasty but the beef was over marinated so I sent it back for the scallops dish and I ate it the next day. The scallops were gritty taste like dirt or stones were on them and the rice was over cooked. I would come back for cocktails and maybe a appetizer but not dinner. Maybe. I called the restaurant and as to speak with a manager and he told me their is nothing he can do about the food but if we come back again he could give us a free round of drinks or appetizer. He said this without asking my name or any information about me. He also said, both meals were very popular and he never had a problem with them before. My husband and I sent over $200 and this is the way we were treated. Go at your own risk.
Wonderful service, very nice ambiance especially sitting outdoors. Great view and delicious meal. Will definitely return!
Went for Brunch and sat right along the pier. There are random people walking by so keep that in mind if you request the seating on the lower level. The food was good; the Maryland Half & Half was by far my favorite. The wings are awesome. Staff is friendly and attentive.
The best seafood anywhere! Seafood dinner (crab cakes, scallops, salmon) simply could not be beat. The Sunday brunch (seafood omelette, salmon BLT wrap) just as delicious. Sat outdoors on the patio both times and the view of the inner harbor was amazing. Our favorite place by far in Baltimore's Inner Harbor... our go-to place when friends visit.
If you're looking for great ambiance and good food this is a place to put on your list. Sits on the water so you get a great view across the Patapsco River with passing boats
I love this place. The food has always been great and the service is great. We went for brunch yesterday and I had the chicken and waffles. It was not good. The chicken breast needed seasoning and really was thick. It was not crispy at all.
Looking for waterfront but deluge drove us inside. Food and service excellent, staff very friendly. Prices fair.
Our experience at Ampersea was excellent! My sister and I were only in Baltimore for one night and so glad we chose this restaurant for our only meal. The drinks were delicious and the food was amazing. It was raining so we had to sit inside but the full glass wall made it feel like we were still outside and could enjoy the amazing view of the harbor. Will definitely be back if I am ever back in Baltimore!
The food and service was great. The server was attentive. The ambiance was cool. I just wish it wasn't raining so we could have sat outside
The atmosphere is great and the location could not be better. The food was not good. I certainly will not be returning any time soon. The next time I come I think I will just have a cocktail.
We took our twin grandchildren to dinner to celebrate their 21st birthday and bid them farewell as they head back to their Senior years in college. We dined on the back patio on a warm, rainy evening, dry under the canopy as a rainbow appeared over Fells and the water taxi quietly plied the harbor's gently lapping waters. We introduced them to a Tuscan red and tuna tartare, then enjoyed mains of Boh's mussels and melt-in-your-mouth short ribs. Topped off with two luscious desserts, the evening was everything we wanted it to be for the four of us. Thank you, Ampersea.
The location is fabulous. The food was well prepared but nothing distinctive and the use of sauce overpowered the main ingredient. The service was attentive but the servers didn't seem to have a lot of knowledge about each dish or their wine list.
My server Ja took the best care of us. Even though the place was clearly understaffed
