    I have been here before, typically it’s a fair to good place to eat. Ordered chicken sandwich, it was dry. Would not order again. Ordered Mediterranean martini, skimpy in size, glass was not full. Ask for drink to be filled adequately and bartender told me it is measured exactly by ounces. No extra. Poor appearance for a $13 drink. Plus when I got bill there was an up charge of a $1 for this martini! It was not worth it. Taste was good, but poor value. Food is fair, portion sizes small. Hostess was nice and checked on us. I suggest the size or price be adjust to increase drink value, customer satisfaction and encourage return customers. I may not return, just not worth it.

    We enjoyed a great lunch at the Gourmet. For a seafood restaurant, they make a great burger - highly recommend. The fish tacos, gumbo and shrimp salad were excellent as well. Our server was fantastic.

    I have some food allergies and sensitivities so I always let management know upon arrival. When I arrived (2nd visit in 2 months) and asked for the manager and as soon as he saw me HE TOLD ME MY ALLERGIES!! I feel very safe eating there. The food was amazing! Additionally, our server, Sebastian, was so engaging and attentive. Love this place and can’t wait to return.

    Gourmet is not the same restaurant when it opened which was outstanding. The last time we came for dinner I ordered the maple teriyaki-glazed salmon with udon noodles and stir fry vegetables. I had ordered it before and it was outstanding. This time salmon was not as flavorful. Instead of udon noodles, spaghetti was substituted. There could not been more than 4 or 5 pieces of stir fry. We decided to try again this past Friday. Again, the meal was not up to par. A Tuscan black bean and shrimp soup had a thick, gloppy base with a very few black beans and small canned shrimp. A cajun flatbread had the same canned shrimp with tasteless chicken pieces. It was supposed to have andouille sausage and I'd be damned if I found any. They have really cut back on the quality of their meals. The noise level is awful. Would recommend sitting in the upper section where the noise level is slightly reduced.

    I had the pleasure of having dinner for the first time with visiting family this past week. Hands down one of the best dining experiences ive had in Towson and I'm allergic to shellfish!! The menu has a bit of everything to suffice for all tastes from the Caribbean Moscow mule to the pistachio crusted salmon. Definitely worth the visit!

    Great experience w Mo as our server. Suggest that when you aren’t busy you put guests at more comfortable tables. Your two-tops frankly just suck, and the first one we were seated at didn’t have enough room to pull out a chair. We asked to be moved and were accommodated to a 4top in the 80% empty restaurant with no problem. We liked our food, and have been in at least a 1/2 dz times.

    The food was good but the ambience didn’t match the menu. It was very bright, kind of loud, and the seating was not great. The table was small, next to a wall. My wife had a door that opened directly behind her, causing a draft, and I had warm air from a vent blowing strongly down on me. Service was great, but the ambience made it hard to enjoy the food.

    I have severe allergies to raw tuna but when I saw sushi on the menu my mouth was watering. I haven’t been able to eat sushi since 2006!! When I asked if there was “any way” they could accommodate me (no cross contamination) they said “no problem “. I had 2 rolls that were DEVINE!!! And I had no reaction. 😊😊😊 I can’t wait to go back.

    The food was great but the service didn't match it. Our waiter was inexperienced, he placed our appetizer order but waited until we were finished to place our main course order which we discovered when he decided to ask us how we wanted the tuna cooked. Not only was the course late but the dish came out severely undercooked so we sent it back to the kitchen. When it came back out the tuna was perfect and the shrimp fried rice and stir fried veggies were delicious.

    Several service issues. Not attentive in general. Had to get our own ketchup and water. Biggest issue: Ordered strawberry salad with tuna bites. Tuna bites were charred and well done when ordered medium. Salad was soaked in dressing. Sent it back. After 15-20 minutes the other three in our party finished and no salad. We cancelled the dinner. We were asked if we wanted it boxed to go. Service at Frederick road location far superior. This location needs a lot more time.

    Great restaurant! Food is always fresh and delicious. Love the bread and the house salad. Always get the sun dried tomato dressing, so yummy. The halibut St Martin is my favorite entree and my husband loves the burger. The tiramisu is one of the best around. Server was friendly and efficient.

    we were there during their happy hour, and we found ordering off of that menu plus the specials menu was a great value. There was a piano player in the bar who was very good. However, it did add to the noise level.

    We had lighter meals including sandwiches, salads, quiche, and an appetizer. The green fried tomatoes with crab were delicious, as was all the food. I will definitely return and have a seafood dinner soon. There were many choices on the menu, so all tastes can be satisfied. The service was outstanding; our waiter was accommodating and courteous.

    We were celebrating our grandsons birthday and the staff could not have treated us better. The food was outstanding. The only reason I didn't taste ambiance higher is because we were seated right next to the kitchen door so we couldn't really experience the full effect. Our reservation was fairly early for a Sat night so not sure why we had to be seated at the back of the restaurant. Truly that was my only complaint. We will definitely be back.

    We had a great small birthday dinner for 12 people in the back room. Our server was very attentive, the manager could not have been nicer, met our needs, and was extremely accommodating. We had such a fun time and the entree portions from our pre-selected menu were huge. Bravo Gourmet at Kenilworth. I cannot wait to come back and have more tuna nachos, old bay wings, and all of the wonderful seafood!

    Food was good. Interesting menu options that included at least a few things for the vegetarian in our group. Server was excellent. Kitchen was incredibly slow, though, especially for a Tuesday at 6:30pm. It took us two hours to finish our meal, with no one opting for dessert. Our entrees were simple, too, but we waited an excessively long time for them.
