The crab cakes were superb. The sole was very good too. For Restaurant Week, the value was excellent.

We were wonderfully served by Alejandro. He was attentive and had great recommendations. The crab cakes were very very good. I recommend this place for any type of occasion. It is a little pricier than the chains at the center of the inner harbor but well worth it.

Overall the food and service was fantastic! The bar moved a bit a slow and we waited quite sometime for our drinks, but that would not deter me from returning. The waiter made a deduction on our bill to compensate for the inconvenience. I will return and highly recommend this restaurant .

The booths were very uncomfortable. I still have backache. Temperature was to warm in the restaurant. The fried sole was tasteless.

Waiters and staff were very friendly and professional. The calamari was exceptional-I would go again just to eat that.

They spoilt us with a complimentary baked Alaska for a birthday celebration.

In the past my wife and I would go here I would say often...but have not been in a couple yrs. So for our Anniversary I decided a great go to spot....not...the meal for what we paid was unimpressive and granted I've had dinner parties at Oceanaire where I've spent on one occasion close to $1k and another about $800 and did not have a regret because the food and service was impeccable. But on this outing for the what we paid we wish we had made ourselves like something on the Restaurant Week menu. As we were waiting for our car out front two women also waiting for their vehicle were saying the same exact thing. Then to make matters worse when the guy bought my truck around all we smelled was WEED...the dude smelled like weed and so did my truck all the way home we made to ride with the windows down to air it out. Thats my last visit.

Overall great dinning experience from start to finish. I say this for the fact that the food and service were both excellent. I want to personally thank our waiter Richard. He throughly reviewed the menu offerings with my wife and I and made some great suggestions. I would credit him for making our experience one I would recommend to friends and family so they visit this great restaurant. Quality of the seafood was top notch and the food was delicious. Thank you for giving my wife and me a wonderful date night experience.

Absolutely some of the best food I've ever had anywhere! Crab cakes, wagyu steak, crabmeat, halibut, creme brûlée - all delicious! Perfect place for date night or a special occasion. Dress nice, but you don't have to feel uncomfortable in shorts with a nice shirt. Server, Adam, was superb!

Everything was great !! The only thing that was bothersome was how warm it was in there. The air conditioner must of been working too hard. We were in the middle of a heat wave. Great Place ! I will return.

I simply cannot fathom why this place has such high reviews? Sunday night at 7:30 and the place was nearly empty while near by places were busy...should have been our clue. Two of our entree choices were unavailable. After sorting that out, and $350 later, we got a cold unseasoned steak, small chunks of king crab served in a cereal bowl, undercooked salmon, and greasy au gratin potatoes. The fried calamari was good, the MD crab soup was OK. Service was inexperienced and not as professional as one would expect at this price level.

We were their to celebrating my Mother's 71 Birthday I booked online, when we got there the greeters was so welcoming they lead us directly to our table. The hostess and mangers all greeted her and wished her Happy Birthday and made her feel like a real VIP they even made a custom menu wishing her a Happy 71's Birthday along with an free desert cake. Our experience here was truly priceless our waiter Howard took very good care of us and kept a smile on my mothers face. I will be back!

Thank You

We had reservations but they seated us in the bar. Several items we ordered never came out and we weren’t comped anything. Fish had burnt taste. Used to love this place but it’s gone downhill.

The food was excellent.
The wine list was a little disappointing
Our waited tried to hard to interest us in ordering crabs and was not too knowledgeable about the available single malts. Rather than give us a single malt list he guessed and only batted one for two.
