Donna's - Cross Keys Ratings and Reviews
I always enjoy eating at Donnas. Yje food is generally excellent and all of the people who serve you are pleasant and very informative.
I love the variety of dishes that are offered and the thoughtful way the ingredients and the combination of the vegetables and main courses are put together. It's always nice seeing either Alan or Donna because they great each customer with warmth and gratitude for eating at their restaurant.
Our Valentine's day meal was extremely good. We look forward to eating there in the future!
I was meeting an old friend who I hadn’t seen in years. Donna's offered us the perfect place to catch up. The server was patient and not intrusive. Once he figured out we were going to be slow, he let us be but was there when we needed something. Really excellent. The food was, as always very good, with the tomato bisque eliciting an “ooh, this is good” from my New York friend. Donna (and staff), you hit it out of the ballpark!
We got together with old friends we haven’t seen in years. The menu was great as everyone chose very different things. All the meals were absolutely delicious and everyone was happy with what they had selected.
The server was phenomenal: very pleasant, knowledgeable, and attentive and friendly.
We had a great evening with great food in a friendly and comfortable surrounding.
Used Opentable to reserve a table for 6 at Donna's. I had never been there before so I looked up the address on Google maps and got the basic idea of how to get there. It was chilly that evening but found the place with little trouble and there was plenty of parking available right outside the door. The main entrance has a double door vestibule so that the cold air didn't rush into the restaurant every time the door was opened. I was greeted warmly by the hostess and shown to our table which was prepared and waiting. Our waiter was Griffin and he went over the specials for the night and retrieved drinks for the table. I ordered off of the specials menu and had the mushroom soup and the blackened catfish linguine which was very good with a little cajun kick. Didn't care quite as much for the mushroom soup but it was fine. The atmosphere was on the dressy side of casual but didn't feel out of place with nice jeans and a button down shirt.
Overall I enjoyed the evening with my family very much. I had a table near the door but never felt drafty. The noise level was very acceptable for family conversation.
The Sunday brunch was amazingly wonderful. I’m vegan and had several options to eat off the brunch buffet. The wait staff was attentive and friendly. The space was very tight and it was bit cumbersome to go back and forth to the buffet. I would definitely visit again when back in the area!
The food was very good. The service was outstanding, the person waiting on us listened and executed all my requests. Beer selection could be better, the wine was fine. It was a very cold Saturday night, but the restaurant was very warm and cozy. The noise level is a little high for a romantic dinner or conversation, but it was fine for us. The location is perfect, safe and having parking is a wonderful advantage. Will return
We went here for a traditional Feast of the 7 Fishes on Xmas eve. There were not many choices in the Balt. area, and the other restaurants I looked into were a lot more expensive, and had poor reviews. Donnas offered a 6 course meal for $55 per person. Every course was outstanding and I feel like we got an unbelievable value for the money. I hope they continue to offer this every year, because this will be my new tradition.
We used to love Donna's back in the 90s early 2000s but haven't lived near one since. We were in the area and looking for something yummy and low-key and we found this Donna's. We were wondering if it was still just as good and it still is! The host was friendly and our waitress was attentive and fantastic! Great food with great prices!
Donnas exceeded our expectation. We went with 2 families (4 adults, 4 kids). Seating was great. Appetizers were very good - mezzo plate and friend calamari. Kids all got burgers and were very happy. The chicken dishes were good as well and they have an extensive wine/drink menu. All in all good choice.
Everything was delicious! Our server very pleasant. I wish all servers in every restaurant would stop adding "you guys" at the end of every sentence. It's so easy to ask "What can I get you from the bar? " or "Do any of you have any questions?" Instead of saying "What can I get you guys?" etc. you can be plural!
Pleasant atmosphere and tasty, creative food choices. Wait staff is attentive and friendly. The outside dining ambience is a rarity in Baltimore City because many other Baltimore restaurants are closer to city street traffic noise. This restaurant is a neighborhood gem. Donna's Cosima also offers a lovely outside venue.
