Donna's - Cross Keys Ratings and Reviews
Unfortunately did not have a great time. Strange the restaurant was practically empty yet we were sat right next to a large table with family members who were super loud the entire time. Kept hoping they were leaving soon. Even mentioned to the server if we could be moved so that we could hear each other and it was shrugged off. Tainted the experience. Ordered something we thought would come out quick but took awhile and avoided additional drinks, eats and dessert just to get the heck out of there. Shame, really wanted to like it. My date was awesome about the whole thing even though we had such limited time to be together, we made the best of it.
I used to frequent Donna's when I lived nearby and it was consistently excellent. Although it's been several years, the other night was no exception to this trend. The food was fantastic, it was quiet and not overly crowded, and our server was absolutely lovely. Not a thing could have been better.
Donna's doesn't disappoint! With Valentine's Day in the beginning of the week - we were happy to get a last minute reservation. We chose Donna's because we love the food. Fresh salads, scrumptious appetizers, bread and their homemade olive oil spread and scrumptious desserts.
They transformed an already cool space into a destination with strings of lights everywhere - it was really special for Valentine's Day and gave the restaurant a warm glow. Our hearts of artichoke salad was delectable. I had the most delicious Tuna surrounded by fresh vegetables that was indescribably good. Took half of it home (large portion) and it was great for dinner the next day as well, For dessert they were serving up giagantic portions of Red Velvet Cake which we declined (but our waiter brought us glasses of bubbly (on him) instead! Our waiter, Mark, hit all the right notes, he was personable, informative, enthusiastic and made us feel like cherished guests. At the end of the evening when the restaurant cleared out - he stayed on to chat a bit! It was a fabulous experience.
The food was/is - so good - we have to become regulars at Donna's!
Restaurant was quiet due to the weather. The food was excellent (has been consistently good on multiple visits) and staff was exceptionally friendly, attentive and helpful. One of our favorite places for a quiet, relaxing meal with excellent food at a reasonable price.
We had a great time spending Christmas Eve together and our experience was the best ever anywhere. We enjoyed the Italian traditional Seven Seas, 7 courses of fish. The chef did an amazing job and everything was delicious! Thank you for the outstanding service and enjoyment of celebrating Christmas.
We always enjoy going to Donna's in Cross Keys. The food is generally very fresh and tastes great. Often we will see some of our Baltimore acquaintances that are also enjoying a meal there.
In addition to very tasty and innovative meals, the restaurant is very pleasant to be in. The lovely decorations ae complemented by a waitstaff that is pleasant, knowledgeable and attentive. It's a treat for all of our senses!
Donna's continues to please: After living in Baltimore for 20 plus years, some of our favorite restaurants have gone or declined. Not Donna's! In fact, it has become better over the years. Following the current trend, Donna's now offers farm-to-table products, assuring fresh and "green" foods. We also appreciated the low volume ambience, allowing conversation without resultant laryngitis. Bon Appetite!
The steak salad, which I usually enjoy, was overloaded with too much salad dressing and not enough Romain to call it a salad. I felt the steak was fatty and tough. Not the usual for Donna's. The waiter never came back to refill the water glasses. We asked two times before somebody came to do it. It was a bit disappointing. It's not like the way it used to be.
