Ask for Sue, as a server! She took such good care of us on our anniversary! Ohh and the views were the cherry on top.

My husband and I came to celebrate our 1 year anniversary. The food was delicious, but service was a little slow. Totally understandable, given it was toward the end of brunch. One thing that did really annoy me was that our table basically didn’t fit us. At some point, the booths had been shifted and both my husband and I had very little room to move. The next table over had plenty of space. They might want to check on their booth spacing.

The meal was disappointing. My octopus was slimy and poorly prepared. The bread basket with the focaccia bread was stale. The hostess had a very cold demeanor and when I asked if I could have the empty table next to the window was rudely told that it was reserved. Throughout the whole evening, it was empty!!

Food was a major disappointment for the price, we had 4 different dishes among my group and no one enjoyed their meal, especially given the higher prices. Cocktails and apps were fine and ambiance was great

Limited menu but delicious and beautifully presented. Awesome views of Baltimore! Great drink menu and service. There’s no cappuccino and only one (yummy) dessert option - but a really nice dining experience overall!

Service was amazing, as always, food is incredible, as usual, no matter what you order. View is also the best in the city, which is only one of the reasons why I not only come back regularly with my other friends who are also regulars, but also bring any family and friends from out of town! Thank you for always providing a wonderful experience for us!

A nice place for Sunday lunch, great views, attentive staff and quick service, and a simple tasty brunch menu. I would definitely go again. Good place for tourists to see across to Butcher’s Hill.

Topside was incredible! We got there a little early, hoping to just have a drink at the bar, and we got seated right away. When you walk in to the dining room you’re immediately blown away by the view from every angle. The drinks were fantastic- my husband and I got the waiter’s recommendations, which were spot on. Our food came out promptly after we ordered and was amazingggg. Easily one of my top 5 meals. We hope to be back!

Ambiance with a view. Very accommodating given the difficult circumstance of no more than 6 to a table - we had 7. Menu was simple but, delicious.

We are guests at the hotel and went for brunch. The view is amazing and the food was great. The menu was limited due to them just reopening. Normal restaurant prices even though it's in a hotel.

We arrived at 1:45pm for our reservation only to be told that we only had 15 minutes until the end of brunch so we decided not to eat here. This needs to be made clear on the website or even during confirmation calls.

The overall experience was amazing. The food was delicious, our server was so nice and helpful, and the view was to die for! There was only 1 negative to my experience. I was allowed to make a reservation for 1:45 but the kitchen closed at 2:00. Giving a customer only 15 minutes to get settled and review the menu to order seems like a rush. The staff was extremely friendly and never pushy but I think the restaurant should not accept reservations so close to the closing of the kitchen. I would definitely dine here again but I think another look at the reservation policy is needed.
