Hubby and I Celebrated our 23rd anniversary here, which happened to be during restaurant week. Beautiful space, love the view from upstairs and live music. Appealing menu options for meat and fish lovers, expertly paired with wines. Arugula salad with peaches was the standout! Only one thing brought it down a notch: server claimed “this is our gift to you” when presenting our final round of dessert wine. Would have worked well with a glass of bubbly at the beginning of the meal!
First visit after long courting the idea to try. The overall it was a positive experience and will be on our short list to revisit and recommend to friends. We visited on Saturday afternoon during Baltimore Restaurant Week: reservations hard to find. My wife ordered from regular menu while I opted for restaurant week - fix price menu. All food was excellent with hanger steak being highlighted item ordered; extraordinary cooked, probably the best I have tried around. Surprised to find that is one of the properties of Foreman-Wolf group, which owns other restaurants in Baltimore we do return without hesitation and are always top-five choices. Glad we did have the chance to try Bar Vasquez; will be added to the other two Foreman-Wolf's properties (Cinghiale and Petit Luis). The ambiance is architecturally beautiful, minimalist chic, open space recovered from an old warehouse located in Baltimore downtown.
Lovely. This was our first visit. The atmosphere is wonderful and our server Susannah was fabulous. We found the food and drinks to be delicious and we would definitely recommend. It is very pricey for us so next time we may just try the happy hour in the bar.
Thank goodness for Baltimore Restaurant Week, or I would never have thought to visit this spot. In a word? Perfect!!! It’s a beautiful and obscured destination for amazing drinks and dinner. I’ll most definitely be back.
Food and service were great. An unexpected deluge occurred the day we were there and it was difficult to exit the restaurant due to flooding on the street. Fortunately, staff aided us in exiting from a spot where the water was less deep. Staff very friendly and helpful. Definite return visit planned.
We went for Baltimore Restaurant Week - what a treat! Food was delicious, and the service was so attentive. The dessert (chocolate flan) was amazing.
Lovely restaurant, great service, amazing food and ambiance.
Worm was found in the salad!!! But neither the servant nor the chef had ever said anything about it. They just took off the plate and gave us another one.
Overall, the food was good. The chocolate flan and the peach ice cream were great. However, all appetizers were really salty, and you need water and bread.
The service was okay.
This was my first, but definitely not my last, time at Bar Vasquez. The openness and vibe of the space is great - soaring ceilings, beautiful wrought iron, impressive wooden beams. The service was impeccable - just the right amount of attention and care to ensure we had a great experience without being overbearing. The menu was inventive and the food was prepared perfectly. Couldn’t ask for more.
Excellent service ...
The food was amazing and the ambience was simply gorgeous! I will return!
One of most impressive dining spaces anywhere and excellent food. Live music is a nice touch. Beautiful bar and lounge area.
What a wonderful experience all the way around. I shared a cheese empanada, salad, strip steak, cauliflower and chocolate flan with my dining companion and it was more than enough food. The chef split the plates in the kitchen, which is always a nice touch. The bartender made a great, fruity mocktail which I appreciated. The food was delish and the service outstanding -- attentive but not circling like a helicopter. I would definitely recommend it. Even my mom, who is first to offer a snarky comment, had none to share.
Ambiance was beautiful and food was delish
Dinner before a show. Server very accomodating. We ordered tapas style. Started with ceviche and lengua, next with empanadas, followed by octupus and ended with the caballero steak. Definitely enough food for all 4 of us and filling. Everything was great but the pork empanadas and the steak sticks out.
For the first and only time dining in your restaurant the NY strip was very bad with much gristle and much fat making it difficult to eat in reality. All other visits have been great with good selections of beef as well as all other items we often order. But this one time only the beef was terrible .
Very nice evening. Great waiter and good food and nice music.
Excellent, attentive service. The staff was extremely polite and friendly. The food ( we had the flank steak) was okay - good just not special.
Excellent service. Love the attention by our server and our hostess. Thank you for making it wonderful.
Top of the line dining experience. The service was outstanding. Excellent Argentenian wines.
The food, drinks, and ambiance were amazing! Will be back very soon!
We celebrated our Anniversary in Baltimore and I saw very good reviews before I made the reservation.
So happy we celebrated at your restaurant! The food was delicious, service excellent and the ambiance was beautiful. We had a table overlooking the restaurant and it was a perfect night.
Great ambience and delicious food. Very attentive service.
We had a wonderful experience at Bar Vasquez celebrating our anniversary. The restaurant is beautiful and the food was delicious. Our server was very attentive and kind. We will absolutely be back!
We went for our anniversary and it was spectacular. As soon as we walked in we were taken to our table and the service from there was top notch. The complimentary desert was the icing on the cake.
Excellent food and the restaurant design is top notch!
We were overdue for a date night and Bar Vasquez exceeded our expectations. The food was amazing!!! And our server, Octavio, was beyond perfect. He really made the night very special! Thank you so much for a great night out!
Had a wonderful meal. Food was delicious. The service was incredible. Had guest from out of town and they were very happy and very impressed with everything.
My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary. We loved the place and the attention was good. We hope to return.
Sat at the bar, bartender was great, chatted at length about their cocktails. Lighting was very dim (maybe a bit too dim). Food was very tasty with a lot of vegetarian options. Service was quick and attentive (although the restaurant wasn't very busy while I was there).
Overall great experience from beginning to end.
Value of using open-table is disappointing. Less useful than before since they have changed the reward process
Our first time here and the food was amazing! Well worth the price. Beautiful atmosphere, service was great. Overall wonderful experience. Our friends from out-of-town raved about the restaurant. We'll definitely return.
Come for the ambiance and the service, stay for the drinks, and the ceviche! :)
Fabulous food, lovely ambience. Great service. Good for date night and special occasion.
Wonderful experience overall. Getting the food out was a little on the slower side but everything else was 5 stars all around. Live, soft music and the overall aesthetics were amazing. Food and drinks/wine were all exceptional. Service was extremely friendly, including the hostesses and back servers/bussers. And noise level was perfect. We had a two year old and between the music and chatter throughout restaurant, it wasn’t over bearing but it was enough to drown out any real noise. I’d give it a 4.9/5.
From the moment we walked in the door we knew it would be a special experience. The atmosphere was instantly relaxing and welcoming, and the staff were very friendly. We sat upstairs and we're treated to a view of the main level as we dined. I had the NY strip, and my girlfriend had the duck for main courses. Both dishes were prepared perfectly, and left us speechless. We will definitely be coming back in the future.
Utterly stunned by the incredible dining experience we had. The food was phenomenal, the ambiance perfect. We had no idea dining in Baltimore could be so fine!
