My friends and I had a reservation for brunch. 5/6 of our orders were completely wrong. The Chef substituted items from the menu with a replacement of his / her choice without informing us or our waitress. The 'Classic Ham Benedict' were prepared with bacon instead of ham. The traditional Hollaindais sauce was an orange, ketchupy Remolaide. The 'Hangover Cure' was served with a seeded hamburger bun instead of a croissant. Shall I go on? The waffles were mushy, the fried food was overcooked and soggy. The bloody mary's were simply tomato juice w/a splash of vodka - no hot sauce, horseradish, olives - nothing! This was a major disappointment - most of us barely touched our food. And to the Chef.....To quote Sebastian Maniscalco "He's gonna make you whatever the hell he wants."

Brunch was great! Service was awesome too. The server gave us some great recommendations to do around the city since we were just visiting the city. Love the endless mimosas and bloody Mary’s.

We had a party of 11 and planned brunch at Fells Point Tavern for the advertised $12.95 bottomless drinks and the brunch special menu. All of this is still posted online and on Open Table. We got there and learned none of it was available. We were offered dinner menus at 1:00 pm. The waitress accommodated us as best as she could by going back and forth to the manager or chef to ask for other menu options and anything else to please us. It wasn’t her fault and she was very nice. I thought the manager would come by the table by now. We had too many people to leave to go somewhere else so we stayed. The food was very good. We were disappointed however with the false advertising and were surprised that the restaurant was so empty considering they called to confirm twice.

Heat was off. Food was meh.
Service was amazing.
I am hoping it was just a one time issue, since I had been there before and it was okay.

Fells Point Tavern had the gall to cancel my open table reservation with no reason when I announced myself at the hostess stand. I did not realize it until I got to my computer late in the day. Therefore i would never go back or recommend the restaurant to anyone

This used to be Cali's Court. It is totally changed from an urban high-end, white cloth, Mediterranean cuisine, chic restaurant, to a laid back, urban, tavern style, beer and live music joint. We knew all of that going in and we had a great time for our 30th wedding anniversary with our kids (25 & 21). Would highly recommend the FPT just because of the front court yard tables and the fun vibe. There are some kinks that the management needs to iron out with the staff and how food comes out. The kinks we ran into were the length of time to get refills and our food - everyone there was having the same issue, I believe. The manager came over without any complaints from us, apologized, and comped a round of drinks and passed around $10 off coupons for our next visit. Our waitress was more than friendly and pleasant - just had an off night or was just too new to handle the full-house. Bottom line is that the FPT is a really an awesome place to chill, people watch, and get some great tasting pub grub style food. The band was inside and we sat outside making the music level perfect for carrying on conversations and listening to music without yelling. Great location and we will definitely return for more fun.

Upon arrival, I was immediately greeted by Seth standing behind the bar. The background music was a culmination of 70's to 80's era of Beetles, Rolling Stones, etc... There appeared to be a 2-top and a 5-top already seated so I asked for the remaining window booth in the sunshine.

Since I came from work where I skipped lunch, I grilled Seth about his favorite menu items; I went w/the "scrumptious" shrimp po' boy and sweet potatoes fries. (I added the word, "scrumptious" because, truthfully, it really was. Well, minus the tomatoes).

Prior to this, I requested guacamole & chips for $8.95. Had I known tomatoes were a part of their guacamole recipe, I would have spared my $9.00. Nonetheless, I removed all the tomatoes and was extremely hungry so I inhaled the guacamole and left a majority of the chips.

All feedback is essential to an establishment's success. I had the good fortune to acknowledge my concern about tomatoes in the guacamole. While I totally appreciated the offer to remove the item from my bill, I felt such an extreme was unnecessarily punishing the establishment especially after having eaten a fair share and over a matter of opinion.

My point is: I rather enjoyed my dining experience, Seth's service, and the establishment.

The shrimp po' boy was phenomenal. I bet you'd think so too!

The menu is sparse and they ran out of some of the food items by 8:00 pm. The food service(kitchen) was very poor/slow, however the server was ok. The mussels were good, the nachos were fair and skimpy and the duck sliders were dry. Save your money and go somewhere else.... Sorry FPT, it was not good. Even the complimentary round of drinks didn't help.

We will not be back.

Great food but really slow service. We had to ask for the same items a few times And even then, it never arrived. Hoping this is just growing pains and it gets better because the food was yummy.

Yikes, do NOT eat here. Hands down worst dining experience I've had in the last three years. We waited 30 minutes at the bar for a table to open up, and we were seated at a table that was open when we had arrived. After being seated, we waited 30 minutes before finally going up to the "manager" and telling him no one had come to our table. He grabbed the nearest waiter (who was waiting on tables both upstairs and downstairs) to take our orders. 20 minutes after our orders were taken, our drinks came out. Another 20 minutes after that, 2 appetizers and 2 entrees came out at the same time. We were still missing 2 entrees. Some of the food was cold because it had clearly been sitting there for a while since our waiter was supposed to only be serving the upstairs. Finally, 50 minutes after our orders were taken, a different waiter came by to check if everything was ok. We were still missing two entrees. 10 minutes later our 3rd entree came. We ordered another round of drinks which took another 20 minutes to get, and the drinks we did get were pretty terrible (and we will drink almost anything, we aren't picky). When our original waiter came back around, we told him we still hadn't received our 4th entree. 15 minutes later our final entree came out, as it clearly had to be made/re-made.

The food was mediocre at best. If we had a great experience, we would still be on the fence about going back. Throughout all of this, the manager was looking around & setting place settings at empty tables. Never once noticed us or came over to check on our food since the restaurant was clearly under staffed. When we received the bill at the end, we wanted to talk to the manager as we did not feel we should have to pay the full bill for such a horrible experience, & two waiters had to physically push him over to our table to talk to us. Felt really bad for the waitstaff, as it was clearly not their fault, just a horribly managed restaurant.

TL;DR - food was meh, service was horrendous.

Lousy Service. The kitchen messed up one of our entrees twice. Would not return for dining.

Foods is good, some interesting like duck sliders some staples like nachos, mussels, calamari (staples in Fells Point) --solid execution. Service was much less impressive - 2x out of 2 consistently bad. The only reason we went back was because the first time service was so bad the restaurant gave us a gift certificate to try it again. Though food was good not special enough to endure another meal there. There are plenty of places in this neighborhood to spend my money and have the wait staff be attentive

From the apps to our main meal the food tasted great (highly recommend the Pear & Gorgonzola flatbread), the service on the other hand needs work.
