The food was fantastic. We got the steak frites and the scallop dishes as mains and some cheeses and Brussels sprouts as appetizers and I'd recommend them all. Our server was very nice and knowledgeable of the restaurant and its menu. Looking forward to going back!

The food was delicious; we started with the oyster sampler, which all of them were great! The complimentary bread is fresh and just the right amount of crunch. My favorite drink was La Hermosa Mariposa, and it's visually stunning and delicious! The Lamb Shank was fall off the bone moist, my husband had the sirloin, and it was deliciously medium-rare. We had the "tart," which had a lot of espresso crunch, which kinda overpowered it but still delicious. Our only complaint was how tiny the poke bowl was for the price; everything else was worth the bill and more! We definitely will be putting this on our list for special occasions!

We had a great table, amazing cocktail and stellar brunch. I will definitely order the quiche, grits and biscuit again! The coffee tart was even better than the chocolate pave that I fell in love with last time. We’ll be back!!

I was impressed by the food but in addition to that our server was so knowledgeable and friendly. I’m currently in a walking boot and even the hostess made sure to seat me close to the bathroom so I didn’t have to walk very far. I would definitely return for the food and service.

This was our first visit but it definitely won't be our last. Our waiter was helpful and warm, the food was interesting (a couple of items that were not your every day menu fare) and very tasty, portion sizes were perfect. We really enjoyed our evening.

Went there with my teenager while visiting John Hopkins University for a college tour. Did my research and found this restaurant. We met up with local friends and the restaurant was excellent!

Food and feel in Gunthers is outstanding. The service is polite, personable and accurate but not always as timely as would merit outstanding. Brunch: Pastry basket a gotta have, french toast and quiche very fine, burger just what the Dr ordered, flatbread good not great. Coffee better than average. Will go back and try other interesting things.

Outstanding service and an incredible meal. We mentioned in our reservation that it was our anniversary, and the staff we encountered all wished us Happy Anniversary, which would have been plenty. They also gave us a complimentary dessert with "Happy Anniversary" written on the plate, which was very kind. Our server was Savannah, and she was extremely personable, knowledgeable and efficient. I think this restaurant is underrated on the local scene and deserves to be mentioned with the top restaurants in Baltimore. We will definitely be back!

We joined another couple for dinner on a Saturday evening. We were seated right away in the large dining room toward the back of the restaurant, which is very comfortable and cozy although it is a huge open space. Lots of menu options, with a dinner menu, an "all day" menu and some specials. We ordered oysters and a parsnip and sweet potato soup for starters. A wide variety of oysters were offered. Our selections were large and nicely presented. The soup was fantastic - very creamy and flavorful. For entrees, we ordered a burger, a lentil dish, and pear, blue cheese and beet salads- one with chicken and one with steak. Everything was delicious. Portions are large. Our server was helpful and knowledgeable but a little bit too involved in our conversations. At the end of the meal, we received our bill plus the bill for another table. While our drinks and starters were served promptly, there was a fairly long wait between the starters and the main course. No huge issues, just little things that were noticeable. Overall a very nice meal, and we would return.

The new fall menu full of amazing additions. We had the New Zealand Venison and Lamb Shank which were amazing! Started with a snapper ceviche' all recommended by Chef Jerry at the Chef's Counter. Make a point of getting in this fall...

First time and enjoyed the meal. The dishes could have been seasoned slightly more to bring out the flavor. Impressed by the surroundings and size of the facility. A good meal but nothing exceptional. Will return at some point but not likely to be a regular spot.

Excellent food and excellent service. The only thing that was unsatisfactory was the seating. We were sat in half booth half table basically crammed in between people. That type of seating was so absolutely unfitting for such a a great restaurant. It really took away from the experience

Amazing food, great server (wish I caught her name). My drink was good and even though the drinks seem expensive, they hook it up. Very impressed! Wasn’t packed at all (bar seemed a little full). Server was on point and kind. Might bring my family back here!!

The food was good but not great. The drinks were better looking than they were tasting. The ambiance was cool and the desserts were amazing, however for the price it was disappointing.

An incredible spot that is very unassuming when you first walk in (although a beautiful bar area) but the dining room is very impressive with high ceilings and an open kitchen. The food was delicious and the service was on point. Definitely will be back

The staff was the friendliest and most adorable!! Our waiter (Manhattan College student) was excellent. We loved our sea scallop and roasted chicken dishes. The complimentary bread and warm olives were delicious. The 10/11/19 host and hostess made us feel so welcomed and were absolutely charming. Both the dining room (green wall) and bar were worthy of comebacks. All good!!!!

Gunther & Co. is beautiful and very welcoming. The details of the decor were well thought out and it is a beautiful place to dine, inside and out. However, service left MUCH to be desired. Our waitress was awkward every time she approached our table and never seemed to be available when we needed something. After she served our main dishes, we never saw her again. We had to go to the bar and request our check. She dropped the check, picked it up and returned for the signed credit card slip and never asked how our meal was, if we needed anything else or if we would like more water. Will absolutely return, but will ask to sit elsewhere if we end up with her again!

Great ambiance in either of the three dining rooms, although if it's nice weather the patio is hard to beat!
