We enjoyed a lovely dinner with friends last Saturday, celebrating two birthdays. We loved everything about the restaurant. The interiors is warm and welcoming, our server was very personable and knowledgeable.

We had Chilean Sea Bass Lobster, Risotto, Salmon and a lovely steak for two. The Greek Salad, tossed at the table was delicious as were all of the deserts.

It is a bit pricey, so I will save this gem for another special occasion.

The food was fantastic but the service was beyond amazing. I had never been. It’s very pretty inside Somewhat of an outdoor feeling with lots of trees.
We had ordered the shrimp cocktails the beet salad and the ahi tuna tartar as appetizers. Absolutely fantastic. The shrimps were huge
I had the sea bass and my husband had the short ribs. The short ribs were great. The sea bass was a bit undercooked for my taste however the waitress herself took the charge off the tab without me complaining or saying anything. She simply asked my thoughts and i said it was good but a bit undercooked for my taste
It was also my birthday and they complimentary brought over 4 different desserts that were to die for
The service was beyond amazing. The manager came by our table to wish me a happy birthday and apologize for the fish which i swear was not necessary. I would highly highly recommend this place for the food, the ambiance and the service

We had a lovely dinner for a birthday celebration at Baltaire. We started off with 6 oysters and the crab cake. We also ordered the little gem Cesar salad and the grilled artichoke. The artichoke was stupendous! So yummy! The oysters were small, but flavorful. 2 Cesar salads were too much. For the main course, we split 2 of the filet tasting menus. The steaks were tender, the sauces complimented the meat very well. We got the lobster Mac and cheese. It was very rich and creamy and totally worth it. For vegetables, we got the charred broccolini and it added a nice balance. We skipped dessert in favor of a homemade cake. The wine, beer and mixed drinks were great!

Food was amazing but service was really disappointing for these prices. For $50+ a plate, there should be pretty outstanding service. We weren't even greeted for 15 min after arriving and drinks took another 20 minutes. Honestly, would not come back here for dinner, seems a little too hip for itself. After work drinks or brunch is probably best for this place.

I was disappointed that my tab at the bar had to be settled separately and could not be transferred to my table. As well, no one offered to carry our drinks to the table as I typically find in restaurants with great service.

Our server was attentive, made a good suggestion for wine. The food was good, but nothing that really jumped out at me especially given the prices.

I will probably go back, but not very often.

Great food and wait staff at restaurant. Had great birthday dinner party for wife. However, restaurant was understaffed, especially as nite wore on....waitresses serving tables in multiple parts of restaurant so service took longer than necessary. Management needs to plan staffing better.

My mom was visiting and always have a great time at Baltaire so I wanted to share that with her. The service and atmosphere, as always, was fantastic. Unfortunately my steak was not as good as it has been at previous visits - this time with the outside burnt and the center quite under what I think is usual for ‘medium’. Brussel sprouts were also quite burnt on the outside with bitter flavor, and frites soggy with oil. Our coffees at the end took long and were also a bit cold. I would definitely come back, but would just hope for a better night and perhaps reconsider our side choices.

We checked in when we arrived and confirmed our reservation. As we were early for the reservation, we had drinks in the bar (nice lounge, on the louder side). We were seated for dinner. Food, atmosphere and service were great. Received notification from the restaurant and Open Table that we were a no show. Obviously a mistake.

Our food was excellent. The lamb chops (actually a rack) were outstanding and cooked perfectly. Everything else was very good, except the croissant bread pudding, which won't remind anyone of Commander's Palace.

The service was well-intentioned but not very professional. My cappuccino was brought before dessert contrary to my request, but the waitress noticed the server bringing it and waved him off. When it was delivered after dessert, it wasn't hot enough to drink. When we told the waitress it wasn't hot, she first asked me if I'd tasted it (I had) and then touched the outside of the cup and proclaimed it hot. True, but the liquid was not. I persisted that it wasn't hot, and they got me a fresh drink which was fine. But it shouldn't have been questioned.

We arrived right on time for our 6 p.m. reservation. The dining room was virtually empty, except for one party of 6, including two very young children. The hostess led us to a table for two, right next to them. We objected and she went back to ask the maitre d' about another table for us. We were then seated at a more quiet table, wondering why we even had to ask.

Still, we would go back. It's close to home and everything tastes good.

I was in a party of six who went for a Sunday brunch. The restaurant is very nice, pretty, and inviting. But, the ambiance cannot save this place. Although the restaurant was far from full, the service was non-existent. Even after we spoke to several waiters and the manager, and were offered free desserts, the service remained abysmal. Further, while some meals were really quite good, mine was simply a lukewarm mush. That said, we did take the manager up on his offer of free desserts, and they were good.
