We were in town for work and found Loche. The food is outstanding and I highly recommend the crab dip along with yellow tail tuna! I will definitely visit them again the next trip out here!!

As always, the food was great and the atmosphere was outstanding. The live band was really good. It took a little while to get our drink and food order but the staff was very apologetic.

So loud you can’t hear people at your own table. There was something wrong with the dimmer lights. It would get really bright then really dark. For our whole visit.

We love Lochbar! We have been several times and we brought 2 people who had never been before. The both loved it and can’t wait to come back. We were lucky enough to come the day after the Frosé drink was put back on the menu...lucky us! We had a fantastic experience as always.

We have dined at Loch Bar over the past couple of years. Love the venue and service. However, the past two occasions we have been very disappointed in the seafood, We ordered the giant prawns. They were well presented but tasted soggy and tasteless. I also ordered the lobster roll. One of my favorites. Very disappointing. The roll was poorly prepared and somewhat cold and the lobster was missing. I probably had a couple of knuckles and a couple of very small claw pieces.
Won't go back!

Loch bar was a delight. Kyle was our waiter and he brought such good energy to us. He recommended some great choices and we ordered them and had no regrets of course. I was taken back by the ambience simply because it felt like an elevated version of a diner. Not what I expected but it was still very nice and the view was nice to look at as well. I will return for happy hour at the bar next time.

Perfection, as always! I had only made the reservation an hour or so before but the hostess remembered my favorite table and already reserved it. Very thoughtful touch! The Chopped Cobb salad is perfect for lunch with any of the seafood options.

great food, period. we ordered raw oyster (4 different kinds) fried oyster (so succulent and soft it melts in your mouth), cream of crab soup (super good with hint of spiciness) and french onion soup (properly made just in paris). for entree, we got Maine diver scallop, rock fish and filet mignon (of course! why would you come to the place like this and not order the best cut of the beef?) all were just simply excellent. both my husband and i have been to some of the best steak houses in the country and around the world, we were both impressed with the cooking here. service was attentive and no fuss. the only thing i think they could have done better was 1) offer some dinner rolls free... really, for the $300 dinner, you can afford to give your guest some dinner breads like all the other good steak houses (capital grille, del fresco) 2) we were there for early dinner, and it is happy hour. half price draft was offered but only if you sit by the bar. why?! you'd rather cater to people who do not spend as much money? again, not what i have typically experienced in a high end place. maybe it is just baltimore. not that i care about $4 which comes about 1% of my total bill. but when you are a pricy place, you need to act more like real posh establishment as opposed to just being pricy. and this is most definitely NOT a place for "value". it is for indulgence! lol

The menu is impeccable, especially for seafood lovers. The service was great and our waiter was very good. The prices are unreasonable, $4+ for an oyster is outrageous. I likely will not return because of the prices.

Food and service was amazing! However, we definitely felt rushed. This is a fairly pricey restaurant and they had us in and out in an hour (appetizer included). That was a little disappointing as we were celebrating a special occasion and would have liked to enjoyed our experience a little more.

Very nice, but pricey, place to have s meal. The only sour note was the space itself - if you go, do not take a table in the rear. Sadly. We did and only to find it's basically a service area with waiters and food runners standing next to the tables hovering over you. There is a constant stream of people, mostly staff, in and out the noisy back door making it feel like a your table is in their way. The lighting and decor give the impression that this is just overflow and service space. It spoiled what could have been a very nice evening.
