Great atmosphere! Chill Music! Food and service were pretty great. We came during a Tuesday night so it may be busy during the weekend but I enjoyed our visit very much.
Beautiful space, not loud, choice of indoor, bar, or outdoor seating. The outdoor space seemed more lively, if that's what you're looking for. We sat inside. Meat and cheese boards are build you own, with each choice priced separately. We ordered prosciutto, goat cheese and gouda, and it came with candied figs, olives, orange marmalade and crostini. Everything was good. Entrees were burrata salad and sea scallops. Both were good, but seemed a bit pricey. If we were to go back, we'd probably just go for drinks and snacks.
A fantastic and fun temple to gin. A great place to connect with friends.
Dutch Courage consistently delivers: great cocktails, great service, tasty treats. It's become one of my top go-to spots in Baltimore
Great outdoor courtyard. Loved the duck wings and deviled eggs + gin drinks.
Great service and everything from cocktail to meal to dessert was wonderful.
Had to go with a 3 stars for food as it truly was the best and the not so great. Pickled deviled eggs were not good but the duck wings were fantastic. The mushroom cheesesteak was seriously one of the best things I’ve ever eaten but the forbidden rice ramen was bland and extremely disappointing. Plus forbidden rice is black in color. I assumed what I’d ordered was going to be black rice “ramen style” with broth and veggies but it was just regular noodles. Same with the cocktails - the Eleanor, Hanky Panky, and 9 Lives were amazing. But the final drink in our foursome - Che Vuoi - be warned… it contains Italian spices and parsley and tastes like you are drinking
Lovely ambiance. Tasty fancy food. Amazing drink menu (will have to come back to try other gin drinks -- so many to choose from). A little loud for our taste and the menu could have a larger more accessible font for the visually impaired, but we had a wonderful visit and will be back.
Both dinners at Dutch Courage have been memorable for the delightful cocktails, ambience, and service. The dinner menu isn’t exhaustive but you can put together a tasty cheese, meat & seafood board a la carte. Their cocktails are all amazing. And when I went for a friend’s birthday last night, our waiter brought out champagne as we sat down. This is the place I’d want to take friends to for special events.
Excellent service. So energetic and attentive. Delicious cocktails and the pastrami melts are so good! The fact that you can make a reservation for outdoor seating is so nice!
I keep coming back to Dutch Courage and introducing friends to this wonderful spot not only because the cocktails are great, but consistently some of the best service in Baltimore. The server and staff went above and beyond to make us feel welcomed
The food and drinks were incredible (we got beef carpaccio, duck wings, and scallops), and our server was so kind and considerate! It was a very special meal and we look forward to coming back to Dutch Courage again.
Dutch Courage is a cool spot on the cusp of Station North and Charles Village. It's a beautifully restored large rowhouse/brownstone building with curious objects decorating the interior and a beautiful outdoor patio in the back. The specialty is gin, with over 100! and the cocktails are creative and well prepared. The food was excellent, though a somewhat small selection (2 main courses, 3 sandwiches, and several small plates). We tried 7 dishes and enjoyed them all. The only room for improvement was the service. The waitstaff was polite, but did not present the menu, and the dishes all came out at once despite us requesting them to be coursed. Probably just growing pains of an excellent new restaurant!
Our new favorite place! Can’t wait to go back and enjoy the outdoor seating and flights available on their menu.
My first time at Dutch Courage was great. My friends and I were impressed by the breadth of the cocktail and liquor menus. We got a flight of gins and especially loved the 'Earl Grey' Corgi.
We had 2 cocktails, the lepentauer cheese, Beef carpaccio, sardine bread and some prosciutto. All were great, but the carpaccio was the winner.
Great place. Amazing drinks. Food is beyond incredible. Bartenders are the best. Get seats at the bar, you won’t be disappointed.
This place never disappoints!!! The food, service and drinks are right on!
Went for a cocktail while waiting for my train to come in; the bar staff was hospitable, and the cocktails were complex and tastyyyy
A Baltimore must. Top of the line cocktails and great food.
Outstanding spirits and drinks menu. Really enjoyed all 4 of the beverages that my husband and I ordered.
The food menu needs to be expanded a little - all of the dishes are expensive and the number of selections is very small. I liked my entree, but didn't find anything that I really was enthusiastic about ordering.
Gorgeous patio and indoor seating.
Best bar/restaurant in all of Baltimore!
Great cocktails, very good snacks. Minimal dinner choices but the cocktail list makes up for it.
What a wonderful cool unique find! Very fun. Bravo DC
Great unique drinks, good food and outstanding service.
As usual, superb ambience and service! Was a little disappointed that the "bun" Ban Mi envisioned as a sort of large dumpling turned out to be a huge sub sandwich -- too much bread, but otherwise everything was delicious and served promptly and graciously! With mask etiquette firmly observed! Thank you!!!
I was not surprised by the high quality of the cocktails as I have heard so many things going in. However, the food was absolutely delicious. Do yourself a favor and order the Duck wings.
Great drinks! Food is a little pricey for what it is.
Friendly hostess seated us right away. Very busy server came right to the table and answered our questions. Our drinks came out quickly. We placed a food order and it arrived surprisingly fast. Dutch Courage was busier than I've ever seen and the quality of drink, food and service did not disappoint. Highly recommend the Duck wings.
Grilled cheese and Talley Man drink were well worth it. Bartender was great. We were only allowed at the bar, which is weird because several tables/seats were open all evening and I know it wasn’t for social distancing measures. Overall, I’d definitely recommend. 🤩
Was seated at a bad table outdoors by the entrance even though so many tables were available, which ruined the experience
Terrific. I wanted to try a Ramos Gin Fizz and it wasn't a disappointment. I'm not a hard liquor drinker but I want to know what to drink when I do. Brennan, one of the owners, suggested we try Bolls genever. It was perfect. Now if I want to drink gin, that's what I'll order.
It was a great experience, the drinks and food were amazing. The staff and ambiance are both charming. Very much recommend for a chill place with nice vibes and upscale yet welcoming drinks.
Drinks are amazing!!!!! They made us special drinks all based on our likes and dislikes. They really know there stuff!!!
Dutch Courage is the best!! Eric, Brendan, Kim and the rest of the staff never fail to take care of us in an excellent manner. Outstanding drinks and food.
Had a great evening celebrating a friend's birthday! We had lots of great snacks and cocktails. The cocktail menu is always well-curated and the food options are fun!
We made a reservation for the Dutch Courage patio, as it was raining when we spontaneously decided on a date night. Dutch Courage is one of the few Baltimore City restaurants with a fully covered patio in the event of rain, and we felt more comfortable eating/drinking outside given the pandemic. The drinks were amazing, the bar snacks were good. We loved chatting with Kim, our server, about the menu. We even asked if the bar staff could make a custom tequila cocktail based off of another rum-based drink on the menu -- and Dutch Courage delivered. Highly recommend for grabbing drinks - Happy Hour, pre-dinner drinks, nightcap. It's clear the team knows what they're doing and provides a level of service to match.
Well crafted cocktails, attentive service and just the right amount of food for a light supper. The courtyard felt quite safe, covid-wise.
Love this place! Their cocktails are always on point!!
Loved the visit. Converted from a classic large townhouse in Baltimore the minimalist decor combined with touches of vintage elements made for a fun and very “Baltimore” eclectic atmosphere with an open and airy feel. The staff was helpful and the food and drinks were great. I appreciate that our server was able to help us build from our initial order with drink suggestions and food suggestions that helped us expand our experiences. I look forward to returning.
