Always good and a good time. My county friend love this “city slicker” spot! Lol
It was wonderful the waitress Gorge was a good help.
Delightful and will return. It was an upscale quiet diner feel with good brunch drinks and a relaxed vibe. This is an easy choice that would work for any crowd/ palette.
City Cafe was fantastic as always! It is easily the place to be and be seen! It is reliably outstanding and a Mt. Vernon mainstay!
It’s a favorite place to go to when in Mt Vernon.
I’m hoping this was just an off night, as I’ve generally like City Cafe. But, start to finish the service was inconsistent, the server messed up the order and, when it came, the food was mediocre. They’ve earned another chance based on my past experiences, but another meal like this one and I’ll go elsewhere.
5 in our group so the round table was perfect. Delicious appetizers: dumplings and Brussel sprouts.
A perfect light dinner before the theater. Service was excellent and wine selection was interesting. I ordered a Cobb salad and it was the BEST I’ve ever had; the lettuce was crisp and delicious and the other ingredients were fresh and crisp. There was just enough dressing for the salad and it was served in a cold salad bowl which was lovely. A perfect salad. My husband enjoyed every bite of his favorite Baltimore Club.
Great food! Even when our server was a little off co-worker and the manager stepped up to make for a great evening!
The waiter seemed quite confused. He never offered a second cup of coffee. He needs to learn a little PR among the clientele.
Food is good, but the service is not so great. We were left standing at the hostess stand for 10 minutes waiting to claim our reservation. Ignored by the waitress for a solid 15 minutes before she came to our table. 2 of 3 drinks arrived in a decent amount of time, but the third was much longer. Again, food is very nice, but the service is really slap dash. Certainly don't go if you're in a rush, but if you're at your leisure, you can decide how much of being ignored you can tolerate.
It was a great place for a quiet Sunday brunch with my family!
Had a lovely brunch with friends. Service was friendly and quick. The chef know the way around a kitchen. Our experience has been that the hosts get hassled if it is busy, but there was none of that. Everyone was quite pleasant.
Never lets us done. Best food and wait staff always
We frequently have dinner at City Cafe before attending the BSO. We have always enjoyed the food and appreciated the good service. We will keep coming back.
Always a great experience! My first time going for dinner (every previous visit was brunch is which is also amazing). The fried green tomatoes were delicious & really enjoyed the spaghetti & crab balls. The bread pudding, SO good! Will continue coming back.
Love City Cafe. It has everything I love: great food, service, value and music!
I've gone to City Cafe since it opened over 20 years ago - since it was a lil coffee shop next to the gay bookstore. Recently, I got to take my lil queer family, on a beautiful Winter night - & it was all I remembered and much more. Thank you for being a safe, lovely place for so long - to many more years!
Great brunch today. Started with French Toast points -- yummy. My son's omelette was huge, and I got the Latin Hash which was terrific. Lots going on there. I had to bring some home! Service was great, and the place was busy but you didn't feel it.
Everyone at our table was very pleased with their meal selections. Excellent food!
Food was good but a little pricey. No kids menu really drove up the cost.
A truly lovely experience. Our entrees were delicious, service was top notch and the atmosphere was charming. Probably the most stylish restaurant in Baltimore City. Whatever they are doing, please PLEASE keep it up
(Wine list is superb).
