My daughters and I recently enjoyed a delightful dinner at Flamant. We greatly enjoyed our appetizers, entrees and desserts. The service was excellent, and the atmosphere was pleasant. We are certain to return.

Our third visit, more enjoyable due to the new space in the back with cathedral ceiling. Ramp entrance is appreciated. We will be back soon.

Food was innovative and very tasty. Beautiful presentation, creativity and most of all flavor. Drinks were good, although wine selection could be a bit bigger with moderately priced wines from about $40.00 - $60.00. The only challenge for the evening was the waitress who was very forgetful and not knowledgeable about drinks, liquor, etc. When asked what type of Scotch they had, she said she didn't know because she doesn't drink scotch. She was missing the point that you may need this information for your customers. She could have referred to the menu which had the list of Scotches. In addition, she forgot the drinks all together and it took reminding to get them to the table. But hey, good restaurants can suffer the plight of poor customer service, as well as any other business. Get it.

This was my second visit; first visit in 2018 was better. Kale salad was very good. Shrimp over frisée lettuce was average. Mushroom cappuccino also average. Side order of fries and dessert donut were great. Will come again but pay more attention to offerings.

Flamant is quite simply the best restaurant we have in Annapolis, and it's always a treat to go there. Dishes change seasonally and are always interesting and slightly off beat, which I love, like monkfish, or the cauliflower mousse inside a crispy morsel the other night --divine! The baked-in-house bread is outstanding, the staff is always attentive, and the setting is intimate and welcoming, especially in winter in the back room. To have a restaurant with a European sensibility in a town full of mediocre seafood dishes is one of the great joys of living here. Go for a special occasion --you won't be sorry!

The food is far superior to most restaurants in Annapolis, but that really does say much because the bar is so low in Annapolis. The food is excellent and on par with what I would expect to find in DC, Miami, or Charleston - all cities I visit regularly, all of which have vibrant restaurants.

The decor is very quaint and clean, which I like, but even on a slow night with very few tables, the noise level was higher than I would like. All of the surfaces in the space are hard, so the noise from the diners (trained to scream at each other by other local restaurants) echoes around and recycles itself.

The woman who greeted and showed us to our table and the server were lovely. Well mannered and soft spoken, they were true hospitality professionals.

Maybe the issue was a very loud Birthday party, but the back dining room was just loud over all. The food was very good and the service was excellent. The evening just wasn’t as enjoyable as our first experience. It seemed as though all of the patrons were together while the front areas were empty.

Surprisingly beautiful setting and memorable dishes. The mushroom cappuccino, farmers egg salad, and veal shank stood out, but every bite was delicious. I'd say the flan was a little more like budino than flan (not very jiggly) but we were still angling for the last spoonful. Looking forward to returning!

Food was great. Loved having the fire going in the back room, created a very homely feel to the experience. Food was outstanding. Would love to see maybe a mocktail or 2 on the drink list, for those who don't drink alcohol. With how creative they can be, I feel it would be a nice touch.

Service was excellent. Our waiter, on seeing that I hadn't drunk much of my (half price for Restaurant Week!) fancy cocktail, asked how it was. I admitted it was not really to my liking but it was worth trying. It was not a complaint. He offered to make me a different one and asked what I typically liked. I got a new, different cocktail at no extra charge.
Food is different and interesting. The fried kale salad was delicious. I would go back for that. My pork schnitzel entree was tender and tasty. DH enjoyed his salmon. Hi chicken liver pate appetizer was rich, a generous portion and came with good bread sticks. We shared a side of "Welsh fries" which were fine but not special. Chocolate mousse for dessert looked like just a dollop in a glass, but it was very rich so the portion was just right. The other dessert we shared was a sort of chocolate/vanilla sundae that was very good.

First visit during Restaurant Week and thoroughly pleased. Kale salad crisp and sweet with just the right amount of flavor from golden raisins. Salmon exceptional and a nice portion evenly cooked. We had a corner table in the front room which was cozy but could hear the neighbors conversation for business on one side and the lover's confessions on the other. Adds to the quaint charm of the restaurant in some aspects, but intrusive on others. Fireplace (back) room looks more appealing. Lovely spot and nice addition to the walk/jam/noisy crowd found in Eastport or along Main Street.

We have been here before and enjoyed the experience. This week is restaurant week and Flamant has a nice set menu with a wine pairings for the first two courses . This time we sat in the back room and it has a fireplace running this time of year. Very nice with the cold season. The things we tried were chicken liver mousse and figs and the ginger-carrot risotto appetizer both were generous portions and very good. The main dishes that we tried were a salmon dish and pork schnitzel . Again both very tasty. This is a foodie place with a casual atmosphere . A great addition to Annapolis restaurants!

We were warmly welcomed and were seated in the corner by the window. The cocktails were inventive and delicious. We had the table for the evening and were not hurried by the staff. The mussels were a generous serving and tender. Because it was a birthday celebration, we were given a complimentary dessert.

My husband & I are big foodies and dine out all over Annapolis. "Stroganoff" was a steak over potatoes (no sauce). I had seafood which was a few bland chunks over sauerkraut. We looked forward to trying this new place out but it was entire mediocre to not good. The bread was amazing & they have a nice firepit outside. We won't be going back.
