We dined at Gunther and Company with another couple who had not been there before. They were pleasantly surprised and we were not disappointed. As always, the food was simply delicious and our waitress was terrific! I highly recommend the Thai Seafood Hotpot. That is my all-time favorite dish at G&Co. I've eaten it several times and it is simply wonderful. It was actually the reason I booked the reservation. I was truly craving this dish. My brother also tried the hot pot on my recommendation and he totally loved it. He is a chef and thought it offered wonderful textures and complex flavors. My husband and sister-in-law both ordered the scallops over risotto and both said they were delicious. We ordered raspberry point oysters, grilled octopus, cream of tomato/shrimp soup, and the Gunther salad as our first courses. Everyone to a person enjoyed what they ordered and most of us shared and sampled just about everything. All were simply delicious. My sister- in-law remarked that her soup was the best tomato soup she had ever even and she was very happy.

Gunther is one of my favorite restaurants!! I come to the restaurant all the time for brunch and dinner! I have never had a bad experience here! My boyfriend is a chef so it’s always hard to find a place to eat that he likes. He has never complained once! Most of the time we sit at the bar with the bartender Zack! He’s great!

Our entire experience at Gunther & Co was fantastic! The food, decor, service, cleanliness - all 5 star! The host showed us the back dining room and spent time telling us about the owners and the various evening specials. He could not have been nicer. The space is stunningly beautiful. I only wish I had known about Gunther & Co since 2016 when I moved to Baltimore! I will definitely be back. Highly recommend!

Shrimp and grits to die for. If you're brunching, go for the Bloody Gunther. The tomato juice base is almost a meal in itself.

Food was good but not blown away for the price. Great place for a happy hour as they had extensive wine list and fantastic ambience. Also, we were sitting way to close to the couple next to use - made it hard for us to have a conversation.

First time there—birthday with old friends. Gracious service that struck just the right note. My salad was exceptionally fresh with a great mix of textures and the burrata splendid. The birthday girl loved the banana cake. Highly recommend, and not too noisy!

We went for Sunday brunch during the Winter Baltimore Restaurant Week. I ordered cheddar cheese grits, house-made brioche French toast and my husband ordered the lemon ricotta doughnuts, Gould shrimp and cheddar grits.

Everything was great! The especially loved the grits.

Waitresses were very attentive and friendly. Would gladly go back to try more of their dishes and highly recommend.

Excellent service from start to finish. The restaurant is beautiful and well laid out. Food was outstanding though I would have liked to have seen slightly larger portions. Our server was very attentive but gave us enough space to not feel smothered. The only opportunity we had was the length of time between courses. Plates were bussed quickly and cleanly. But it consistently felt like the timing was off between the kitchen and service.

I really enjoy this place. The food is great and the service is exceptional. This is my second time eating here and once again I was not disappointed. Although the portions are not huge, the food is very well prepared and the presentation is wonderful. It’s a great date night destination. I would highly recommend giving this place a try.

Server was lovely. Restaurant is aesthetically beautiful. Food was not great. The burrata mozzarella was overly complicated, the bread was served cold, the side of vegetables had no taste and were totally undercooked.

It was our first time here for dinner and it was incredible. The food was amazing and the service was completely extraordinary. We ordered a bottle of wine and the duck confit spring rolls to start, which we loved. Then my husband got the special Wagyu steak while I got the special tuna entree and both were just amazing. We finished with creme brûlée and daily ice cream special and everything was fantastic. Although I’d prefer tables farther apart, we will certainly be returning for a special date night!

This restaurant has great potential, but the service and flexibility of the waitstaff are deficient. The chef is superb, but with so many options for excellent food in the area, I feel no need to return to Guenther & Co. I was one of five people, and the restaurant was probably not even half-full on a Friday night at 8:00pm. Yet, they were completely unaccommodating (would not even remove scallops, of which there were only 2, from a dish). With a happier, more personable wait staff and a more flexible kitchen, I am sure this place would be packed because the food is delicious.

Excellent food and service. The menu was smaller on the holiday, but everything was delicious. The French fries in the grouper fish and chips were ridiculously good. Ravioli were creatively made and sauced. I expect to return.

This was to be a family New Years brunch. Unfortunately the waitress must have been suffering the after effects of the holiday. (1). We asked for help with gluten free choices and she told us to read the menu. (2) We were a pasty of 10 — 6 adults and 4 five and six year olds. The waitress insisted on taking orders by going around the table - unwilling to allow an adult to order for themselves and the child. (3). We waited over an hour - despite asking that they bring the children’s food as soon as it was ready. When it finally arrived, it was cold.

So unpleasant and so disappointing.

It was New Year’s Eve and this is what sticks with me the most.....it was 1150pm when we finished dinner. Our server invited us into the bar to watch the ball drop. Someone was pouring glasses of champagne. The ball dropped and my friend asked for a glass for the 4 of us. A worker said no, it was just for the staff. Are you kidding me? We just spent almost $800 on dinner for 4 people. It might not mean that much to the restaurant, but this means an awful lot to me, & will influence my decision to ever go back.

Ok, now for dinner. It was a price fixe menu at $85pp. Meal started out great with our oyster selection. That was an addl $10pp, then with the wine paring is added another $35pp. Next course was the lobster bisque it was only warm & very bland. In fact we had to ask for salt. I NEVER ADD ADDITIONAL SALT TO FOOD AFTER ITS COOKED. This meal desperately needed it. Our reservations was 915pm. Restaurant was busy when we got there, but by 1030 it had started to empty. Yet our service was slow. The server was very nice & kept apologizing, even someone in charge came over & apologized. No need to continue you get the idea.

We have been to G&Co before but not for New Years. It was an excellent experience, they didn’t overbook the place and so it never felt crowded. The set menu was great and had several options meat, fish and vegetarian
