Food was great. Service was a little slow at first but got better. We went for a romantic dinner, but bar was way too loud. Little disappointing.

It was a beautiful Mothers Day. One issue that is note worthy. In my profile, I ask not to be seated by bathrooms, and waiter stations. We were seated behind what I would call the waiter station. There was a register, dishes, cutlery, water pictures, and way to much conversation. So, my badd, next time I will be sure to ask to be moved... ut I also feel as though the restaurants need to focus on the profiles of their guest, the option to indicate is there for a reason.

For the coat of food it would have been great if the waitress had checked on our table after the food was served. Coffee and water not get refilled as no one came back despite being at one of ten tables filled. Disappointing.

Service was great, very thoughtful for having a toddler. The food however could use some improvements. The pasta dishes we got were under cooked. Overall too salty for the side dishes and main dishes. Brocolli Rabe was burnt and too salty.

loved the vibe here! great place to come as a group or on a date. We were sat promptly, service was great, and they had a good selection of wine. For an app I had the yellowfin crudo and shared a crab cake with my fiancé both of which were excellent. He ordered the pea soup, and thought it was really lacking in flavor. I don’t eat pea soup so I can’t really offer an opinion on that. For my main course I ordered the scallops with mushrooms and Swiss chard, he ordered spaghetti with pomodoro sauce and meatballs . The sides were great and the scallops were cooked perfectly. He loved his meal, but from someone who grew up on homemade sauce from scratch I didn’t think it was very palatable. Kind of reminded me of tomato soup. I would definitely dine here again and recommend to friends.

Very disappointed. Very limited Easter brunch menu. Highly overpriced for quality received. Waited at bar for our table to be ready and my husband and I ordered ONE Bloody Mary and ONE mimosa...bar tab was $40!! Get over yourselves Sagamore Pendry.. the drinks weren’t that special. Our server was an absolute sweetheart and it truly is a beautiful place...just thought it would be much better than somewhat average.

We went there for easter brunch. I had the crab cakes benedict. they were very good but did they justify the price, I am not sure? Bottomline: we would come back but we would not recommend to all of our friends.

Place is beautiful and the staff is very accommodating. Mannie was our waiter and was awesome. I gave the food four stars only because my steak had to be sent back because the first cut was extremely fatty I was unable to eat it but sometimes rib eyes are like that. They tried to rush another one in time so I could eat with my table but it came out cold in the center. It was removed from the check and with all of the other food I left perfectly full.

Some of the food was outstanding. Filets, trout and pastas. Salads and rockfish were mediocre. Also breakfast was great. Some of the service was exemplary but our dinner waiter was pushy and never checked on whether the food came out the way we wanted. Never had the opportunity to correct anything. The staff at the hotel and in the restaurant are generally extremely well trained and can’t do enough for you. It was a shame that our great meal wasn’t deserving of 5 stars.

The new Sagamore hotel is a stunning example of how to preserve history while making the space cool and hip, and the restaurant is no outlier. The space opens to a wall of windows and the table seating can be cozy (booth) or open (table). Both arrangements allow you to take in the high ceilings, huge brass light fixtures and historic detailing down to the bar stools. Most importantly, the food is to die-for -- scratch pastas, aged steaks and everything in between. Each dish was better than the next. Be sure to order the Blue Crab linguini - if nothing else, share it for the table. It is amazing!!!

The Pendry is a wonderful new addition to Fell's Point ands to Baltimore. The atmosphere and the room in which the restaurant is located is better than outstanding and the service is great. I just wish the menu was more interesting, It is very good, but not spectacular or special to match the atmosphere. The entree's are pretty standard steak and seafood. And standard preparation. It is a good meal, but a spectacular chef and meal at a place like this would make it so much better.

Disappointing experience. The pasta was undercooked and the lamb was almost nonexistent.
The open room was too sterile and lacking any intimate or private setting.

My wife, two grown sons and I ate here for Sunday brunch. The service was excellent. I wanted a steak. The waitress said there weren't any on the brunch menu, then brought the manager over who said he would ask the chef. Chef agreed and I ended up with an excellent rib eye steak. The brunch items my family had were all wonderful. Ambiance was quite pleasing; moderately but not deafeningly loud. Very good coffee. We will definitely be returning.
