Pros: Great food, great menu, great ambiance. Very good drink selection. Overall great dinner enjoyed by all parties.

Cons: Restaurant was empty and we were seated between two couples when there were multiple tables that were free and never were filled while we were there. Ordered a glass of wine and a beer and it took > 15 minutes for it to arrive.

The food was very good but it took over 2 hours to get our entrees and we saw tables seated after us get their food first. When I complained to the waitress she said the kitchen was running slow, but that should not be my problem. Enough other great restaurants in Baltimore that I will not return to this one.

It’s an incredible place, beautiful and exactly what our night needed. However, we spent over 2 hours there. Our food took an hour to come to our table, our waitress did not care about us and continued (almost aggressively) to try and up-sell us.
It was actually uncomfortable.

Food was great and service started off very good. Then our server disappeared and the person who took over was not attentive. I’ve never waited so long to get my check. Had to walk my card up to the server.

The restaurant itself is very pretty but the service wasn’t great. We had gotten our appetizers and were about to order dinner and realized we never even gotten our drinks. It took about 15 minutes between the time we ordered a drink to then get it. Seemed like the host was bussing tables and delivering drinks. The most upsetting part about dinner was when I went to order something and asked for it on the side. The chef refused to remove the item from on top of the main protein since it was a “composed dish” and I was basically told to either suck it up or order something else. All dinner item cannot be changed or altered, so if you have picky eaters, do not come here. It was extremely rude and bizarre and I will not be going back.

I can't say enough about how awesome this place turned out to be. The food is great and unpretentious, the wine, beer, and liquor lists are VERY impressive (think five of every kind of wine and 10 or more of certain types of liquor!), the staff are friendly, and the building itself is so freaking quaint! I highly recommend the octopus app and the scallops entree. I did not get the oysters but they also had an impressive oyster list. The scallops were quite possibly the best I've ever had - I would never have thought to pair them with a gumbo sauce but it added a bit of salt and spice that was perfect against the sweet scallops. What I loved best about this place is I see it as a perfect spot for friends, family, colleagues, young, old, first dates, anniversaries - there's something for everyone (from fancy cheese plates to just really good old fashioned well done french fries). I cannot wait to go back.

Good for drinks and appetizers. Oysters were delicious . Would not order a salad as one had too much vinegar and the other bland. Burger was small. Expensive for what you get. The waiter insisted we order everything at once according to the chefs wishes which was not our choice

This was our second visit and like the first, we were quite impressed with the food, the service and the choices offered. Instead of a huge menu, they keep the choices down but the variety up. Plus we were celebrating a birthday and were served a delicious baked Alaska gratis. We can't wait to return and sit on their special patio.

Always a treat to dine at Gunther. The drive from Towson can be a deterrent, but once we arrive and look at the menu, it reminds us why this is definitely one of the top 5 restaurants in Baltimore. Few places cook fish better. There is also a vast range of flavors / spices on offer. My only complaint is the wine list is a bit limited and prices are pretty rich in terms of mark up. We will be back.

Was called by the restaurant two hours before reservation to confirm time and my requested accommodations. I appreciated it

Excellent staff. I use my water glass to measure staff attentiveness. It only went empty once and it was brief. My glass was refilled by two different team members showing they collectively are paying attention to all the customers. I also never pick my meal in an effort to ensure I try new things. When I presented the task the the waiter he wasn't the least bit daunted which was a pleasent surprise.

The food was above average to excellent. They have multiple menus, we experienced the Sunday supper menu. We had scallops and pork chops. I was skeptical about the porkchop (accompanied by excellent collard greens) since it was a thick slab about portions being dry. I was relieved to find out that wasn't the case. The scallops (accompanied with rice and a flavorful sauce) where seared excellently on one side creating a flaky texture while the flesh remained tender and fresh.

The layout is intriguing and has highlights throughout. The front area is a bar, large glass windows and stone counters with accents of exposed brick decorations. It was bright and inviting. We were seated in the rear. There were low top tables to seat two or four and a long row of two seaters which had one wooden chair and one portion of a long comfortable blue couch. The accent lighting was nice, glass laser etched and placed in front of a light source which dangled overhead. But the room was mostly ambient lighting. The kitchen was in view from this area, stainless steel was shuffled behind by the kitchen staff adorned in all white. Again there was exposed brick and an accent wall that had live plants that surrounded a large clock as well as wall mounted wine at the top of a staircase thst led to the upper seating area. They have an outdoor area as well. Which I requested but it wasn't available yet. It was a very good looking restaurant.

On a lovely Saturday evening I decided to take my husband to dinner to continue the celebration of his birthday. I used open table to make a reservation at Gunther and Co. I noted in the comments section that it was his birthday and any acknowledgement of it during our visit would be fab! We were greeting by a friendly and charming hostess and escorted to our table. Our server diligently reviewed the menu with us and was attentive throughout our dining experience. The ambiance was warm and inviting. The noise level was not too loud and although the area where we were seated was next to other patrons we could still easily talk and laugh with one another. The food was delightful especially the Brussel sprouts! Our cocktails were cute and crafty. The restaurant even acknowledged my husbands birthday with a dessert option and the words Happy Birthday written on the plate along with a plated candle. Thank you Gunther and Co for a lovely evening.

I took my mom here for her birthday dinner, and everything we had was delicious! From the oyster sampler to the steak frites, and of course the complimentary birthday dessert, I can't say enough good things about our experience. Though we're not Baltimore residents, I'm sure we'll be back! The space itself is bright, airy, and gorgeous.
