The food is absolutely outstanding. They don't have a huge menu and I think that works to their advantage, they focus on doing a moderate amount of items extremely well. The excellent taste of the food is reflected in the price though, so don't go in without expecting a hefty tab.

While Ouzo Bay (OB) is primarily known for its fish, I had the 8oz filet and it was beyond amazing. I've eaten at all major and many small, but well known, steakhouses throughout the Baltimore Metro Region and without a doubt, OB's put the competitor's to shame. It was literally bursting with flavor.

My dining companions each had fish, a Branzino and Chilean Sea Bass, respectively. Both were tasty an served in generous portions. The Branzino leaned toward the sweet side, the Sea Bass was a little more muted but flavorful.

I only had one critique of the evening and that was regarding the desert. I had a single scoop of chocolate ice cream while my companions decided to split the Mosaiko. While they both enjoyed the Mosaiko, I found the chocolate ice cream to be more like a fudge in consistency and a little off to my preference.

Depending on your personal comfort and tolerance level for the prices, Ouzo Bay is definitely a place to take a date or celebrate a special occasion. The ambiance is welcoming but a bit noisy. The decor is modern with a "Chic Greek" appearance. I very much recommend Ouzo Bay for a delicious meal.

On a personal note...please make the Lobster Bucatini a permanent addition to the menu and one of the most amazing dishes I've encountered in a restaurant in my life (it was a special when I had it in 2019).

It was date night for my wife and I. We had tickets to a jazz show across the street from the restaurant. The area is gorgeous where the restaurant is located adding to the charm.

The food was magnificent my wife had the sea bass and I had the Lobster. Excellent dinner worth the price.

I went with friends for brunch and it was delicious. Def try the avocado toast, French toast, and/or the Full Bay meal. This will def be one of my new go-to brunch spots.

We had Pinot Grigio, outstanding scallops with pumpkin risotto, excellent village salad, custom salmon, broccoli and cappuccino.

The manager checked at the end of the meal and took the salmon off our bill eleven my date said it was not to her taste (even though there was nothing wrong with it).

Raisin bread and a baguette with seaside olive oil replaced the usual pita. Vibe is very modern fur a Greek place, water views from some tables.

Great place to dine, food is excellent, service is good. Recommend using valet that way you don't have to figure out where to park. Also one of my favorite places to dine, go there and see for yourself.

The meals and drinks were very good. The only issue was the request I had for cooking the Chilean Sea Bass medium for the 3 meals. Only two were cooked properly and mine was over cooked.

Oh my goodness it was fabulous! My husband and I agree we need to eat at Ouzo Bay more frequently. It was Yummy. We eat out often , but it's location is just a bit off the beaten track.
We had Spanakopita which was the best I've ever had. My dinner was the Hokkaido Scallops from the Specialties of the Sea section, again they were really wonderful. I told the waiter they were better than those at Roy's.
The service was superb, we ate on the early side Saturday night. By the time we left the dining room was full and the wait staff seemed ample. I highly recommend Ouzo Bay, we'll be going back very shortly.

When we arrived the hostess tried to seat us at the bar even though we had reservations and there were tables available, so we had to ask for a regular table. The place has a nice atmosphere and our waiter was really nice but the food is way to expensive for what they are serving. If you are going to pay $50 for lobster risotto, you should have more than just two tiny pieces of lobster smaller than my thumb. The flavor was good though.

We had a great time. This was my first experience and truly enjoyed this spot. Food was great although we had to send something back due to it being undercook. That somewhat spoiled the celebration. However, management was quick to address the issue and offered me many choices to fix the situation. Overall, this is AMAZING! Great date night spot and a girls night out.

I went for Valentine’s Day with my loved one. Overall my experience was really good. My food was very well prepared. My only complaint is that it was too loud and the room I sat in was an enclosed patio I think so it was pretty chilly. I could hardly hear my partner and we were sitting directly in front of each other. I will definitely return though because the food was amazing!

Excellent food and service. However, Valentine's evening was quite a busy one for the restaurant. I think they overbooked the evening. Plus they ran out of Dover Sole, totally unacceptable! How do you run out of the most amazing fish on Valentine's night?

Excellent food and service! It’s pricey but if you are looking for a nice dinner you won’t be disappointed. The one negative was they did not have 4 of the listed entree items.
