We loved the atmosphere, steak and potatoes, and complementary anniversary dessert. The creamed spinach had so much nutmeg that we couldn’t eat it. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner!

This restaurant came as a recommendation for a surprise birthday dinner. Upon arriving the staff played along - stating the table was for two people - vs. the actual four. The other diners were situated in such a way that the guest of honor did not see them until the last possible moment. The staff was wonderful and attentive.

The food and wine were amazing

I can't wait to go back when it's much warmer outside.

No complaints. My wife and I was seated in the upper back area next to a family with kids. When they finished the round table was filled with two couples and 4 kids. Overall the youngsters were well behaved.

I assumed when you go to dinner at a fine restaurant like this restaurant the hostess could make better judgment on where to seat people based on the company they bring with them.

What a gem! I was in Annapolis for business and “discovered” Lewnes. Some of the best steak I have had in a steakhouse. Amazing wine list. Absolutely fantastic service. Warm, friendly and professional. I will now be looking for reasons to get back to Annapolis.

Service and food was what you expect from a high end steak house. Great food and attentive and knowledgeable waiter. The downside was no parking within several blocks of the restaurant and a table too close to the exit door. The draft made me put a coat on my legs. Not sure if I would return.

Our steaks were all excellently prepared and presented. The side dishes were good. The Greek salad was said to be a specialty, buy it wasn't really anything special. Service was attentive and while our server forgot several items, once reminded they were bought and we weren't charged for them. Dessert was a serious disappointment. But the steaks were wonderful.

For a high quality and renowned steakhouse, it is hard to believe that a porterhouse and a filet were both so grossly undercooked. Ordered medium and both served absolutely rare. Sent back the filet and it was returned maybe medium rare at best.
Loud and foul mouthed couple at the table across from us further diminished the experience.
I understand that it is difficult to control an obnoxious couple, but you should be able to prepare a steak and deliver as ordered.
Anniversary dinner. Second bad experience in a row.

We had a truly wonderful evening! Excellent service, ambiance and some of the BEST steaks we have ever had! Quiet enough to have wonderful conversations. The server suggested an excellent wine to pair with our dinner. They quickly accommodated us to a first floor table very discreetly when they realized one of our party couldn't maneuver stairs. Pure class!

Great food. Slow service. Loud. We were upstairs in a cozy room. The group next to us was very loud. It took 1.5 hrs. To get our meals. We were a table of six. Maybe that’s why it took so long. Server recommended lobster, then found out there was none left.

Lewnes is probably my favorite spot in Annapolis for a special occasion dinner. It's ideal for any occasion that calls for a touch of the old school charm and a little extra class. The food is excellent, so you're not just paying for the atmosphere and the attentive staff, either!

My husband and I had a mini-vacation in Annapolis and our tour guide from Urban Adventures recommended Lewnes for our anniversary dinner. We were very pleased with the delicious food and generous portions, all on the pricey side, but worth it for this special dinner. We started with a delicious shrimp cocktail with very large, tasty shrimp. I had the Greek salad, also delicious but too large to finish so I took it home. My husband ordered Filet Mignon and he said it may have been the best piece of meat he's ever eaten. I had the Broiled Atlantic Salmon Filet and it was perfectly seasoned and cooked as I requested it, done all the way through. It was fabulous, and too large a portion to finish. We shared an order of Sauteed Mushrooms (very tasty; I also brought some of those home) and we shared a huge baked potato with sour cream and butter. I had the Greek salad, salmon, potato and mushrooms for a wonderful lunch the next day. Our cocktails were also perfect, generous and tasty. The meal cost just over $200. with a tip, but it was worth it. The atmosphere is dark and quiet, which was fine for this romantic dinner. The servers were very responsive, but I would have enjoyed a little more formality for such a pricey place. We would definitely return.
