Have not eaten here since after the pandemic. Before, we ate at Bluestone pretty often--food and service are usually quite good.

The food was not up to standard. The firecracker salmon smelled a bit ripe, as did the crab fried rice that accompanied the two way tuna. And the two way tuna was really not good. A good piece of tuna, when served rare, is delicious. This tuna was tough, tendony, and was not pleasant to eat.

Not sure I would recommend bluestone to a friend. The old bluestone, definitely. The bluestone from Tuesday night? No.

The food and the service was superb. We were seated quickly for our reservations. We greeted quickly by our wait staff. They were friendly and attentive. We ordered the seafood medley with pita chips and fried green tomatoes. Both were delicious. For our entrees we had the lamb shank and crab cakes. The lamb shank was well prepared and extremely delicious. And the crab cakes were a good size for the price. We were pleasantly pleased by our overall experience and will definitely be back.

I've been to Blue Stone several times and the food had always been delicious. Today I ordered the crab cake with shrimp and scallops. It came with 2 extremely small scallops and a few very small shrimp. For Blue Stone I was very surprised to see this. The crab cake was very good as usual and so was everyone else's dish. My daughter had the scallop entrée and they were small for her as well. The service and appetizers were very good. Very crowded, more than I'd seen even before Covid.

Good experience. Calamari was good just too many tentacles :/. Fish and chips were great! Great breading and the trout sauce with was delicious.

No more espresso machine. They should figure out how to get that back on the menu. Coffee wasn’t that great either.

The three of us who ordered the Crisfield stew agreed it was delicious, arriving at our table piping hot and a bit spicy. The other two that ordered the fish and chips found it mediocre at best. The arrival of our meals after ordering seemed long.

Sunday night special 3 course dinners brought a very big crowd. We waited a while before our server showed up, and the first thing she said was to please be patient, her whole section had all been seated at the same time. Not a good start. She encouraged us to order our first course along with our drink orders. Our drinks arrived after the salads. Then a table of four near us stood and left. Our server was very distracted by this and left us wondering if she was going to come back for our entree orders. We made the best of the delays, but overall the service was not up to par.
The food had problems as well. One drink had a different brand of bourbon than what was requested. The salad dressing overwhelmed the Bluestone salad. The filet mignonette were overcooked and dry. We had to request steak knives. The crab and cream of crab were fine, and our friends had no complaints about their entrees.
By the time we finished our dinners, the restaurant was empty, as we had been there for three hours!

We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at Bluestone, especially since this was our first restaurant outing post-pandemic shutdown. We arrived 30 minutes early and still were seated immediately. Our server, Alexis, was quite pleasant, accommodating and attentive to our desires as we were celebrating two birthdays. We never once felt rushed; in fact, we stayed longer than we intended because of the welcoming, relaxed atmosphere. Our food was plentiful, well prepared and absolutely scrumptious!! Of course, this was not our first time patronizing Bluestone, so my sisters and I will definitely return, again.

Food is always excellent. Room we were seated in was crowded which made me feel uncomfortable due to COVID especially when a group of six were seated right next to us. Our servers were good but seemed rushed due to high volume of diners.

We were in a room with limited tables so noise level was okay. In other areas it was so loud we couldn’t hear each other. We have to remember to ask for a specific room.

Asked for a quiet booth, got a cold noisy room, we had an early reservation! Music loud and next to a door that had a huge draft
Manager or hostess can’t lift their head to talk to you.
Wonderful that staff “wearing masks”but it would be better if they wore them over their noses!
Usually a nice visit but tonight early Eve was off.

Server was outstanding. Very friendly and efficient. The Hanger Steak Frites were absolutely delicious! Our only observation was that many staff members, in addition to the server, asked (sometimes more than once) if everything was fine. It was starting to feel a bit interruptive and intrusive. We would have preferred only once or twice throughout the duration of our meal. Otherwise, everything was very nice.

Bluestone never fails to raise the bar. The Crisfield Stew is my favorite entree in Baltimore and I will most definitely keep coming back. I am a New Yorker. I know a first rate restaurant . Our lovely server was polite, attentive and charming.
