The food was superb, the server excellent, and the drinks generous. Monocacy Crossing is not cheap, but quality never is. I appreciated that they gave us a corner table as I have hearing issues. In general, I was impressed with the moderate noise level. In most restaurants, patrons immediately start talking loudly - I don't know why - but that hasn't been the case the three times I've eaten at Monocacy. (There was a wailing baby, but luckily that stopped.) I recommend Monocacy Crossing enthusiastically.

It was the best! There was a large party next to us that were very loud. However everything else was wonderful! Best food ever.

Our 2nd time there. Food is exceptional and creative but not super foodie level so the average person looking for a great meal with items they know with unique combonations of flavors can experience a great meal.

My wife have found a unique combo of two appetizers: get the hush puppies (a must) and the scallops (also awesome), use the leftover bacon an sauteed sweet onions over the hush puppies... its really works.

The beef medallions for dinner are an A+.

YOU MUST HAVE THE WARM COCONUT CAKE FOR DESSERT!

If you don't get alcohol you can get out for under $100 for two with 2 apps, 2 meal and 2 desserts. It is the desserts that are on the pricey side but the apps are on the low side so pick you choices.

We will be back again.

Monocacy crossing is advertised as a historic fine-dining venue. Unfortunately, I took my girlfriend here for dinner to celebrate our 3 year anniversary. I found that it was very loud, far from romantic and the food was very sub-par for the price of "upscale" dining (coming from two non-picky eaters). 60%+ of the guests were obviously drunk and under dressed for the advertised establishment.

Always a treat and great place to meet friends. The fried chicken is special.

We ate at Monocacy for our anniversary because we love this restaurant. It was very busy the night we went and so a little on the slow side, but the food was totally worth the wait and the waitress was pretty good about letting us know what was up. The atmosphere is always nice but relaxed and it is always friendly. I had the pork tenderloin, which is excellent and my husband had the filet, which he also said was excellent, both served with sugar snap peas that were very good. My entree had scalloped potatoes, which are the reason I get that entree.

As I was traveling for work on Valentine’s Day we decide to head to Monocacy Crossing. While the Shrimp and Scallop tagliatelle was fine, we ordered the Surf and Turf special that was well past it’s prime. My guess is that they didn’t move enough Filet and Lobster tails on Wednesday so they were left out until Friday. The filet was tough and flavorless bedsides for the undisclosed (nearly tartar) sauce on top of it and the lobster tail. Also not mentioned by our waitress was that the Lobster tail would be deep fried and smothered by the same sauce as on the steak.

Very good meal, including the lamb shank and the filet mignon. Great service also, especially for Valentine’s Day.
