    Our food was so good. The location is across from the harbor-a plus. Parking-a minus. The ambience is serene and light, with spiritually conscious decor, selenite, crystal quartz. We appreciated the intentionality of the whole experience.

    We need more fine dining vegan options like Liora! The staff was warm & efficient and their 5-course Thanksgiving meal felt traditional and novel at the same time. Only one citrus vinaigrette was shockingly sour—like, ripped off the roof of your mouth. We should have sent it back, but nobody wanted to complain when the staff were all all working Thanksgiving. Anyway, it was a very minor glitch in a delicious and indulgent meal.

    Service and ambiance very good with a nice view overlooking the inner harbor. The sound level was perfect for conversation. The wine list has some fun options, but per glass pricing is eye watering, while bottle pricing was comparable to other restaurants. The food is hit and miss. The "lobster" bisque and the Ceasar salad were excellent. The collard greens were not edible, the truffle udon felt like the truffle shavings were a waste of an expensive ingredient, since it was impossible to taste them, or any of the other ingredients over the heavy-handed use of cayenne in the bread crumbs. The rum cake was decent, though the coconut cream tasted and looked like coconut milk from a can as did the pineapple.

    The best plant based meal I have had ever on any continent I have traveled. Unbelievable food pairings, exquisite presentation, impeccable service. The crab sandwich is not to be believed it was so delicious. And for a Marylander who has tasted every crab cake sandwich I could have in 65 years, that’s astonishing. We went for brunch. The food was so amazing we each tasted each other’s plates. And dessert- just WOW! Definitely coming back with more family and friends. A GREAT place for any type of venue needs. And great beautiful adjoining plant based restaurant next door, called Double Zero. Bravo Liora!!

    OMG. Every bite was delicious. I loved the tiny bowl of herbed popcorn to nosh on while deciding what to order. I chose the barbacoa taco (delicious!), the autumnal apple salad (tasty), and the pumpkin sage risotto (yum!). I also ordered the mac & cheese and gem ceasar salad to go. They were both exceptional. The service was attentive and friendly. The restaurant was beautiful. If I lived in Baltimore I would be a regular!

    Had high hopes given all the hype, but we were very disappointed with both appetizers, both entrees, and the sides. For a place they specializes in vegetables (and charges a lot for it), they didn’t prepare any of them well. Felt like we were at an overpriced vegan food booth at a festival.

    Food wasn't terrible, and desert was actually quite good, but it was very expensive for what you got, even factoring in the fact that everything was vegan and house made. Seating in the bar area was extremely uncomfortable, especially since we were dining and were there for about an hour and a half.

    We were looking forward to a great vegan meal. Two of ordered the Cauliflower entree. It was undercooked and had uncooked flour in the florets. The flavor was ok but not great. None of us could eat it. My husband had the risotto. It was much better but the asparagus was over cooked and mush. We won’t be coming back. Very disappointed!

    Liora was fantastic. Physically the restaurant is beautiful with large floor-to-ceiling windows letting in plenty of natural light. The food was very flavorful and unique. Had the watermelon poke main dish, crab cakes, baby gem salad and smashed fingerling potatoes and a rum cake that was out of this world...very "rum forward" as our server informed us. The server was attentive and knowledgeable and personable. Can't wait to return. Thank you Liora

    Every visit to Liora is a memorable one. The management and staff are top notch and the swanky setting makes every meal there feel like a special occasion. The taco was a knock-out and we especially enjoyed the risotto. Oh! and the fig/melon seasonal salad - just delicious!

    I dined at Lioro Thursday evening on the advice of several Baltimore friends. As a business traveler, I dine solo quite often. And as most seasoned business travelers are, I am an 'efficient diner': usually sit in the bar...eat rather quickly since no companion or chat...and tip well (business accounts!). Most waiters or service staff with any experience know this and work to make my experiences pleasurable. Liora? Well, not so much. But I'll circle back to that. The cocktail menu? Really good. Diverse. Some known and lesser-known options. So kudos there. The food? Well, the crabcakes are excellent. The soy glazed carrots equally so (though I would order just a bowl of carrots next time without the side stuff...even though it was all good!). The market salad? Pretty good (though mine seemed to be missing the almond feta). The frozen banana/coconut pie for dessert? Amazing. The dining room? Beautiful, though duly noted that the design has a number of sightline impediments that make it challenging for service staff to see patrons. And the service? Well, Lioro could do better. I was seated in the bar. In plain view of both female bartenders. And yet...10 minutes after being seated and after repeated eye contact....nothing. No recognition...no table visit..nothing. (Though the blonde was--perhaps--'distracted' by the very engaged chat she was having with her 2 friends at the bar.) After almost 15 minutes, I almost left. instead, I snagged the hostess and floor manager who promptly worked to 'rescue' the really really really bad first impression that the bar staff had created. I was SO stoked to visit Liora and then...felt somewhat demeaned as a patron by being utterly ignored. The meal did 'rescue' the first impression but...I'm not sure I would return next time I'm in Baltimore. Sad, because I so wanted to have a lovely personal dinner.
