    Great on paper, not so great in person. 6:30 reservation and dinner didn’t come til almost 9! Appetizer and wine okay, but overpriced for dinner. For a group of 12, only two people had “hot” food. One meal never made it out with the others. Bathrooms were shut down… It was an expensive evening that should have had a better finish. Surprised the manager never came to our table with all the food being sent back. Stay away from the avocado pasta - it comes out dry. Great ambiance, great appetizers and lack luster dinner.

    Smashing Grapes - AnnapolisResponded 1 day agoThank you-we are disappointed to learn that we were not able to offer you an excellent dining experience and that neither your food nor the service was top notch. We will use your feedback to address our team, as there is no excuse for this.

    I’m so disappointed with our experience at Smashing Grapes. The food and wine were phenomenal, however, the service was abysmal. We had a party of 8 with a 6:30pm reservation. Once the whole party was seated, we put in our first drink order (bottle of champagne for the table), a round of appetizers, and some entrées. Before we even got our drinks, the fire alarm started going off. After a few minutes, we were told everything was fine and that we didn’t need to evacuate. We sat back down, although the fire alarm was still going off. This went on for another half hour since they had to wait until the fire dept came. At this point, it was past 8:00 - our 1st round of drinks gone, no appetizers, and absolutely no communication from management on what’s happening. When our server came back, we ordered our 2nd round of drinks and a bottle of wine. She came back about 20 mins later with some of the drinks but they were out of the bottle I ordered, so I ordered another kind. It took another 15-20 minutes for her to come back and say they’re also out of the other bottle so I picked another one yet again. Thankfully 3rd time’s a charm and they had the bottle I asked for. By this time, it was close to 9:00 - I just got my 2nd drink, still no appetizers, and still no communication from management. We didn’t get our appetizers until after 9:30, 3 HOURS after we got there. Entrées were requested to be packed up to go because we were done. The entrées didn’t come until after 10:00 and even then, one of the orders came out raw. It wasn’t until we complained that we were told their kitchen was shut down due to the fire alarm. I understand things happen that’s beyond anyone’s control, but management failed to communicate this with us. Had they been transparent from the beginning, this whole ordeal could have been avoided. It’s unfortunate that our party spent several hundred dollars on a ruined night and the worst dining experience we’ve ever had.

    Took over an hour for a charcuterie board. They didn't have enough staff and should have accepted tables do accommodate. The place is beautiful but each time we go it gets worse.

    The ambiance and service are very good at Smashing Grapes. The food and drink are more of a mixed bag. The Agnolotti with duck confit was a terrific choice from the homemade pasta section. One of our dinner companions ordered the Avocado Tagliatelle and, while he enjoyed the taste very much, it was very different from what he expected. The avocado was barely noticeable, and the piece of chicken, which was supposed to be blackened, was seasoned differently. Another companion ordered the Rockfish, which came out overcooked. Our biggest disappointment was the wine list, which used to contain a lovely Riesling from the Finger Lakes but now has no Riesling at all and no wine from Upstate New York. Overall, it was a nice meal, and we will return. We'll just hope for more all-around satisfaction!

    Smashing Grapes - AnnapolisResponded on January 24, 2023Therese, thank you so much for sharing your review. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the atmosphere and service, but sorry to have disappointed with the food and the wine list. We will use your feedback to address our team and improve and we hope to see you again soon so we can offer you the 5-star dining experience we strive for and you deserve!

    I’ve dined at Smashing Grapes before which is why I was surprised by my experience during my recent visit. I ordered the shrimp Diablo and received a plate of raw shrimp. I sent it back complaining it wasn’t cooked, that the shrimp was still raw. I got back the same entree with the same shrimp that I bit only microwaved a bit more. I sent it back and requested it be taken off the bill. I got the impression that the restaurant was short staffed as I watched my waitress run back and forth but the customer service was still good nonetheless. I ordered the halibut for my entree, that wasn’t good either. The green beans side was half burnt and half uncooked and the fish was over cooked. I don’t think I’ll be going back

    Not very happy or impressed. It took 2hrs get our appetizer, then another 15 minutes to get our food. Then not even 20 minutes layers after receiving our food the wait staff was coming around to clear our table asking if we were finished. Had reservations for 7:30pm received our food at 9:35. They clearing the table at 9:55! Completely unacceptable and the manager wanted to give us gifts cards to come back as compensation for the bad service!!’ Why would we come back?? Just FYI we had reservations for 12 for graduation celebration. Not much of a celebration!!!!

    Let me start by saying this was for Thanksgiving Buffet dinner at 5pm. I appreciate the restaurant being open so I didn’t have to cook however now I am sorry we didn’t stay home. When we arrived we stood at the check in for 8 minutes waiting to even be checked in. We then sat on the bench waiting to be seated. I watched as other parties arrive after us and get seated before us. We were sitting for 10 minutes when I went up to the hostess stand and asked if we could at least get some water as no one had been to our table. When we saw who our waiter was we realized he had been socializing with friends at the table next to us the whole time we were waiting at the table, who was seated right after us. As for the food - disappointing is an understatement. Half of the food was empty on the buffet, some substitutes were there but almost everything hot ( except the carving station ) was barely room temperature. Cold congealed Mac & cheese, green bean casserole and sauce on salmon was disgusting. I wound up eating the only edible items which I had to go back for multiple times since they were empty - mashed potatoes and salad. Eventually a few oysters came out and were gone just as quickly, dark turkey meat finally came out and was the best thing there. I asked a young lady about refilling the missing food and she snapped back quite rudely and told me they had been busy all day and it would come out when it was done. For desert the pumpkin and apple pies were still frozen in the middle, the bread pudding was empty except and layer of burnt bread. I did however see a manager handing out to go boxes to customers who were loading them up with what was left on the buffet. Not enough food to feed those of us there but they were handing out to go boxes ?? After flagging down the waiter, who we saw once for water and once for our drinks- we asked for the check so we could leave. An 18% gratuity was added already - waste of $175!!

    RE: Thanksgiving buffet. Poorly timed food availability. Waited for both oysters and desserts to be brought out. Seating on 1-hour intervals might even out the demand. Soup was poor. Cranberry sauce inedible tart. Turkey gravy was runny. Wine was astoundingly over-priced. 18% tip is a lot for someone basically cleared plates and who brought our wine after we had finished our salads. And we had to go get our own salads. Meats, oysters and stuffing were excellent. Blueberry bread pudding and Brussels sprouts also very good.

    Smashing Grapes - AnnapolisResponded on December 1, 2022Allan, we'd like to thank you for dining with us for our Thanksgiving Buffet. We are ecstatic to have celebrated the holiday with you. While we are pleased to know that our carving station and other items were satisfactory, we are apologetic that some of the other buffet items were not up to standard. We appreciate your feedback, and we extend our apologies that your holiday celebration was not up to the caliber it should have been. We hope to have another chance to win you over in the future.

    We went for Thanksgiving and were the first seating. The buffet was very small for $42/pp, the beef was overcooked/dry, food was mostly bland, and small details like whipped cream for the desserts, horseradish for the beef, etc were missing. It may have been worth $29 a person. I would have expected more, honestly.

    Smashing Grapes - AnnapolisResponded on December 1, 2022Kris, we'd like to thank you for dining with us at Smashing Grapes. We are honored to have been part of your Thanksgiving celebration. We are regretful, however, that our buffet offerings fell short and failed to impress you. We'd like to extend our sincerest apologies for your experience, and we hope to have another opportunity to provide you with the excellent experience you should have received.

    On the expensive side for the quality of the food. It's not bad, just overpriced, and maybe word has gotten around, because it was empty for a Thursday night in Annapolis. What really bothered us , though was a fee to use a credit card. This is the first restaurant that we've been to that has started this practice. Hoping it's not a trend ...

    Very high priced. NYC prices near the Annapolis Mall. I had duck confit agnolotti pasta. The sauce was watery and gross.

    Smashing Grapes - AnnapolisResponded on November 15, 2022SusanJ, we'd like to thank you for visiting us at Smashing Grapes and for taking the time to share your honest thoughts. While we appreciate your positive ratings on our customer service and ambiance, we are regretful to learn that our housemade Agnolotti was unable to earn your favor. We hope that you might return and give some of our other pasta dishes a try in the future.

    Our server Emma was super! There were 6 of us (3 couples) dining on a Friday evening - we had reservations but were surprised that there were many empty seats. This is a very nice & clean restaurant with a great ambience. The noise level was perfect - we could talk easily without having music too loud. A live band started mid-way through our meal & it was perfect - the vibe was great & still not loud. We had the most enjoyable time! Everyone’s food came out quickly. It was fantastic to have a vegan OR a gluten-free menu (though I would have preferred to see both since I need BOTH options). I had to send our waitress back to ask questions twice because it was not clear on the menu if some of the vegan items were also gluten free (and vice-versa). After confirming the portobello mushroom was also vegan, I ordered that for my meal. However, when it arrived there were 4 large “scoops” of something that looked like a butter cream. I asked the waitress to please verify that this dish was indeed vegan (i.e. with no dairy/cream) and when she came back she apologized and said it was NOT vegan and there was butter in that. I was glad I asked. She took the dish away and said they would prepare a new one for me immediately. I was surprised then how quickly the “new” dish arrived and as I suspected, they had just merely scraped off the 4 large cream dollops. It was obvious as I saw cream remnants in those original spots. I didn’t want to hold up the group and sending a dish back for a 2nd time is risky, so I scraped it off - I am vegan by choice, not because of a dairy allergy. I didn’t have any allergic reaction to be concerned with, but for others with an allergy or sensitivity, that would not have been an appropriate resolution. I hope they can make their menus more clear and ensure that if a meal is communicated to be vegan (and/or gluten free) it comes out that way!
