Who does that?! We arrived and they had special menu for the Cirque Du Soleil and It was absolutely delicious. I ordered the braised short ribs and polenta and the Chinese five spice brule and my guest had a Exotic beet salad fit for a king. The restaurant was packed and had this happy hour special til 8pm. What a convenient location for good food, great people and to be able to head to the concert next door. Our server Ronda? Was very sweet and personable. Anytime we visit the Arena, were our first stop will be here.

Convenient for all the attractions downtown. Near the harbor, near the First Marina, Hippodrome. Just very near everything.

Loved the Calamari and other Apps. Didnt have much time to enjoy the rest of the menu but, were not far from this restaurant. This Pineapple Upside down Martini they got going on is Crazy Good! And after reading the review here,, theyre right, the Food is spot on..Thanks.

We ate at the Balto Tavern and Tap before going to a show at the Hippodrome. We were seated at a table, and although this is the Sheraton's Bar, the room had a nice feel for dinner. The manager and server were friendly and pleasant to talk to. The server had good recommendations. We had beer, appetizer, and then burgers. Each burger was cooked perfectly. Dessert and freshly brewed coffee followed. We sat for a few minutes and then took the 5 minute walk to the theater. It was a perfect place to go after parking early downtown, having dinner and then casually walking to the show.

There was absolutely nothing wrong with our experience at Balto. The service was great, staff was friendly, and the food was good. We really enjoyed the corn and crab bisque, as well as the calamari. We were happy with the meal, just found other places we liked better while in Baltimore.

Unbelievable! Me and my girls wanted to do something different for dinner and we found the perfect place to do so. The restaurant was conservatively packed because of superbowl and happy hour lasted til 8pm. With a series of different drinks and food to meet your every pallet type, I was very impressed. The Salmon & Chimichurri was out of this world and our drinks we just delicious. Carlton was fantastic. Very attentive and made sure all of our needs we met. He even hauled us a taxi. This is a tavern that stands alone because they make sure to go to the next level. We visit baltimore often and Baltos will be a destination for us.

I come to this spot often just to simply relax on my laptop and to listen to the great music they offer. Any game you wanna see, they got it. My favorite is there Truffle fries. Unbelievably Delicious! Especially with my glass of Malbec. I get the Crabcake sandwich all the time and it never fails me. Staff is always fun and friendly. Keep it up

Despite reservations and few patrons (three other tables), service was incredibaly slow from arrival to billing. Service personnel had to be repeatedly sought out and during the long wait for the food, no offer was made to refresh drinks. While the food was good, 90 minutes for lunch was a bit much.

Happy Hour drinks and apps were great. We stayed for dinner. The fish tacos were amazing!! My husband had the bone-in cowboy steak and a side of broccolini with olive oil and lemon. It was cooked beautifully. Great cappuccino and local deserts. This hotel restaurant, that's open to the public is definitely a hidden treasure. We will be sure to come back soon. ;))
