Incredible! I wasn’t expecting such a varied menu. Our server, Debbie was great and so pleasant. Everything was perfect. We will definitely be back.

The creme brûlée was less than average, and the silverware was tacky. But the entrees were good. And the service was professional.

The food was good - but not as good as several times I have been there before. The service was good. Worst part - the entire restaurant smelled like a sewer. Not terribly appetizing. Not sure if I will make the trip again.

I took my wife to Restaurant 213 for a date night. We had both been before, but not together. It was a very nice dinner and our waiter was outstanding. He paired our wine flight with our meals, rockfish and tenderloin, and he was extremely polite. The food was outstanding. The only downside was a couple that was seated across the dining room, who started to have a loud conversation with the chef. It involved a lot of loud talking and some cursing, so hearing all of that while we were enjoying our dessert put a slight damper on the night. Aside from that, it was the perfect date and we would highly recommend Restaurant 213!

Extremely high profit margin on wine. I buy bottles of La Crema all the time for 22.00 a bottle and they charge 70.00. Too much. The food was great. The chairs were cheap auditorium style chairs with a cover on them. The wait staff was very attentive. For a Saturday night there were only 3 other couples there. The food was amazing but expect to drop 200.00 on dinner.

Fine dining on the shore is hard to find and Restuarant 213 hits that catgeory! We've been here before and as with the first time, consistency is there. The ambiance, a great bottle of wine and excellent meal prepared by Chef Jim Huges made our night! Well worth the visit if you enjoy a quality meal and don't forget to save room for "Breakfast".

This establishment continues to offer wonderfully prepared food in spite of the economic challenges they must be facing. Fine dining, apparently a dying art, still can be found at 213.

We come to Easton yearly for the waterfowl festival. We come a day early to stay in Fruitland, md. (Right out of Salisbury) just to eat at this special place! Jim Hughes, the chef/owner of 213 is a most talented chef, he was chef in the Reagan White House!!!! You won't be disappointed! Hubs had lobster in butter, I had shrimp and grits, YUMMY!!!

Tonight was our second visit and it was a poor experience. Crabcakes were cold, when redone they were raw and lacked any crab. But to us the worst part was that the chef/owner would not come out and talk to us about all that was going on, and intended to still charge for inedible food. Left a very bad taste, thats for sure.....

The food and service were outstanding. The food is on par with L'Auberge in Great Falls VA.
We have lived on the Eastern Shore for 2 years now and this was by far the best fine dining experience we have had to date. Worth the 1 hour drive!
The flavor of the food was awesome.

Went for my annual birthday dinner there. Always a nice place to go. Chef created an awesome vegetarian pasta dish for me and my husband loved his rockfish 213.
Our waiter was friendly and attentive without being intrusive.
Love this place.
They seemed to be a bit off the night we went, as I ordered a Vodka and grapefruit juice cocktail and they didn't have grapefruit juice. I needed a "to-go" box and they were out of them, so the waiter wrapped the leftovers in plastic, then foil. And, lastly, I love getting the scones to take home for the next morning, and they didn't have them. Oh well.

This is our second time at Restaurant 213 and I can tell you our experience is just as good as our first. Service, food, ambiance are outstanding. We will certainly go back again & again & again...... We will also make sure we entertain family, friends and guests at Restaurant 213. Wine list is impeccable and food is just about the freshest I've ever tasted.

We greatly enjoyed our time. The food, service and drinks were all outstanding. We especially enjoyed the carrot soup, the small sipping soup, the lemon sorbet intermezzo (between courses) and the oysters. My 98 year old mother-in-law especially enjoyed being able to have just a soup and to split a meal. She also enjoyed the slice of cake for her birthday that we received as we were leaving.

What a surprise to find a restaurant of this quality on our drive home from the beach. The food was spectacularly fresh and imaginatively prepared, from the seared scallops on lobster risotto to the banana beignets (lucious tempura fried banana pieces with vanilla ice cream and caramel dipping sauce). Fresh halibut. Rose from Provence. Even a tiny ball of lime sorbet between courses. After a week of so-so beach food, Restaurant 213 was a delight.
