    Get the roasted carrots! Amazing. The grilled calamari not so much - the spices made it taste bitter. All the views are wonderful - but the noise level got pretty high as the place filled up.

    The views are amazing and the food is fresh, locally-sourced, and delicious. I would honestly go back for the roasted carrots- that's how good they were. The grilled calamari and fresh strawberry sorbet were other highlights. My husband loved the squid ink scallop pasta. The drinks are also bomb.

    I was overcharged more than what I should pay for. I contacted the restaurant and no answer. I have to contact my credit card to dispute the small amount. It's the principle, I don't want to pay more than I should. Now I have a pending charge, I don't know why my card is being used unauthorized. I have to call again my credit card, what a waste of time. The restaurant didn't care to give attention to this. I have been here before; the service was great the first time and even the food. This time, it's just okay. The passion fruit tastes a little tart, not good than the first time. Overall, the food is good but overpriced. The waitress that we have has a little weird attitude, not very pleasant. I can go somewhere, where my credit card is safe.

    Topside RestaurantResponded on March 25, 2022Hi, Thank you for visiting with us and I do apologize for any inconvenience we might have caused you. Please email me, achraf.iraqui@jdvhotelscom, the receipt and I will personally make sure to fix any potential discrepancy. Thank you for your feedback, it is very important for us to hear from our guests. We are working very hard to improve everyday. We would hope that we get the chance to serve you again and leave a better impression. We are looking forward to hearing from you.

    My husband and I visited Baltimore recently with another couple and stayed at the Revival hotel, so booking at Topside was a no-brainer. We made reservations for a Saturday night and was thankful we did; the wait was over an hour when we went so highly recommend booking in advance! We ordered a variety of small plates and two entrees to share and every single dish was beautifully plated, so flavorful and fresh. I'm vegan and their vegan entree was hands-down one of the most sophisticated plate I've had on the East Coast. Our server Susan was absolutely wonderful and probably the most kind, up-beat waitress I've ever had. Would definitely go back!

    This restaurant is worth going just for the view honestly, drinks were good, service was also good and dessert. Entrées we’re not great sad to say at least the ones we had were bland and not great consistency. I would go again for drinks and dessert though.

    We visited topside to see for ourselves what all the buzz was about. A visit during Restaurant week seemed like the perfect idea. We are so glad we did. We arrived just in time for the magnificent sunset. Honestly, there is no better place to watch the Earth move than here in Baltimore. Absolutely beautiful. We then started the meal with wonderful cocktails. We all then partook within the Restaurant Week specials. I personally had the squid ink pasta and scallops. YUMMY!!! The salad and dessert courses were also wonderful. Pulling it all together, of course, was a stellar team of servers that made certain everything we needed was provided promptly and with great care. We look forward to our next visit and even envision some special events there. I know we'll have a great evening - whenever it happens.
