Food was perfect. Recommend the Scallops and Salmon dishes. Spring roll were tasty. Baklava was flavorful but not too sweet (could be a complaint by some).

Our server Gerry was perfect. Was attentive but not overbearing.

The special guest appearance by Cal Ripken Jr. was a pleasant surprise!

Only complaint was music was too loud for a 7 pm dinner.

Everything was terrific. We were a party of six and we ordered almost every app they had and shared them family style. Main course everyone loved what they ordered. I had sea bass that melted in my mouth, fantastic! For desert we all had ouzo bar Barbagianni and introduced it our party that had never had ouzo and they loved with baklava and loukoumades to top off the night!! Perfect!

Very nice, modern looking restaurant, but noise level was high. Service was excellent. Our waitress was pleasant, informative and accommodating. Let us know that there was only one of a certain type of fish left, and asked that it be held for us until we made other decisions about our order. Grilled octopus appetizer was highly seasoned, sliced over a puree (not sure what it was, but my partner liked it) and my lamb ribs were tasty. Appetizer portions were rather small for the prices. Nice selection of whole fish from the grill, served a la carte. We ordered a side of grilled vegetables, which included broccolini, peppers, zucchini and yellow squash. My scallops were perfectly cooked, served over risotto. Overall, food was very good but a little pricey, as were many restaurants in the area.

Great service and food. Love the menu and wine selection! It’s a noisy place but the location is very central and it’s fun, somewhat a lounge more than a restaurant at night.

I was disappointed in the experience here. Although the food was pretty good, it was HIGHLY overpriced. We sat near the fire display in the back and I was nearly sweating it was so hot. Hey crammed as many people as possible in as well.

We had not been to Ouzo Bay in quite some time only because we do not get out as much as we used to and have been enjoying the newer Atlas restaurants. It was great to be back because they still have the best octopus anywhere, we like to order it with a little extra char. Additionally, I enjoyed the best scallops I’ve ever had as well. This place never disappoints.

The food is superb. For example the salmon was prepared to expectations and my request for medium grill. The accompanying dish of grilled asparagus was superb; I am very happy that the chef serves both the spears and the stalk, separately of course, as the entire asparagus is not only delicious but very healthy. I appreciate the good service and not being rushed to complete my meal. Bravo for Ouzo Bay!

Went at 5 pm on Sunday evening and was seated in the front window. It was very empty and therefore quiet when we arrived. By the time we left more customers arrived. Service was great and food was perfect as usual.

Ouzo Bay is our new favorite restaurant in Baltimore. Eduardo, our waiter, guided us well through the menu offering great advice with good humor. When we asked for advice on the wines from Greece, he went away to get the answers he didn’t have, returning with some good advice. Eric, the sommelier, soon arrived with what turned out to be a very nice bottle of wine and proceeded to educate us on Greek wine making and specifically the one we chose. Eric and Eduardo were interesting and engaging and we appreciated their passion for what they do. I can recommend the Octopus appetizer and Cioppino main course as excellent choices. My better half really liked the Lamb ribs appetizer and Scallops main course. We’re pretty sure there are plenty of other good choices too. Thank you for a memorable meal experience.

Wonderful recommendations from server on appetizers. However the fish ordered came with skin and head attached which wasn’t mentioned, nor very appetizing. Lamb was wonderful, scallops were gorgeously plated.

Reso was cancelled even though I checked in and told the host that I was going to enjoy at the bar, had to go back to host stand to reclarify. odd. Other than that, Excellent food. Amazing Ambiance. Sat at the bar on a Sunday PM. Service was good. Bartender was friendly.

Fresh, original take on Greek food and seafood. The Greek classics were prepared with a light touch. Extensive fresh seafood selection flown in from a number of worldwide locations, impeccably prepared. Service is attentive without hovering. Highly recommended for a special night out, with the caveat that the music from the bar area travels at sometimes annoying levels (especially the bass) to the dinining area.

Good, but expensive. It would be better if side dishes come with the main dishes charging for $38-$58 range that we ordered.
