    Really enjoyed the food - especially the beef tartare. My only criticism was that the pace of the meal was a bit fast. For this price point you don’t want each course coming right on top of the prior course and finishing the meal in under an hour

    Dinner was very good and easy to share. I went for my girlfriend’s birthday where we split the beet carpaccio and meatballs for appetizers as well as the tagliatelle tartufo and skirt steak for entrees. The table area for seating is a little small and close quarters but it never felt overwhelming which was nice and never had to shout. The service was very friendly and emphasized they want to impress as the restaurant is new in the location. Overall the event was very enjoyable and I would go again.

    I was enjoyed my first experience here and I liked all the food. It would have been perfect but there was one thing that tainted it for me. The truffle Amish chicken has foie gras under the skin and there is nowhere on the menu that discloses that. We were not sure about the taste and didn’t know what it was so we asked the waitress and that was the only way we knew. I would never have knowingly ordered chicken that had duck liver on it. I just think it is wrong to not put that detail on the menu. Everything else was good. Pasta was delish the bread service was yummy and the service was great. More transparency would just be nice!!

    Their gnocchi was pasta not gnocchi which was never told to us if it was switched out. Service was good but felt she was told what to say as most expensive as her favorites. Happy to have a neighborhood place and will check it out again.

    Best dinner in Baltimore in quite a while. To give a glimpse of how good this place is, this is the first review for a restaurant I have made in 31 years of my life. Tuna canoli, meatballs, steak, duck ravioli. Everything is amazing. 10/10

    The only complaint is the incredible noise level Hard to gave a conversation. I wish restaurants would at least have a quiet table or 2 I have read that many patrons like the excitement of a loud place and that owners believe they sell more liquor in that environment but a strong negative for me as I enjoy table conversation

    What a fabulous dinner we enjoyed at Marta! From our start with Tuna Cannoli, followed by Tagliatelle and finishing with opera cake the only thing better than our delicious food was the excellent service provided by Morgan. What a perfect evening!

    We had such a great experience last week, that we immediately made reservations for this week. The meal and service were still top notch. The duck and foie gras ravioli was out of this world, the beef tartar was just as wonderful, and the butterscotch dessert was a nice finishing touch. We're already looking forward to our next visit. It's that good.

    This is not a run of the mill corner bar with all the regular bar food! The food here is exceptional and if you sit at the bar the two bearded bartenders offer jaunty conversation and have a deep understanding of the cocktails and the menu. When was the last time you saw Dover sole on a neighborhood menu? This was my 2nd visit and have tried numerous items on the menu....all were outstanding. There does get to be a bit of a din when the place is full but it is within an acceptable range.

    Everything we ordered was delicious, from cocktail through to entree. Recommend the caesar salad and any pasta they make. It's clear they're still figuring things out in the service department, it took awhile to get our drinks and our server forgot us for awhile, but I would still return for the food. Assuming they'll work out the kinks!

    This place is perfect and fills a niche that I didn’t even realize was missing in the neighborhood. I’m gonna have to go back so many times cause it was so hard to decide what to order and I want it all. I sat at a table and split a lot of things with a friend, but I can also see myself popping into the bar after work for a classic cocktail and an appetizer alone.

    Atmosphere is cozy and comfortable. Bar is nice and equally comfy and cocktails were impressive. The beef tartar was the best we had ever had-the combination with the beets is a winner, please don’t change it. Our entrees were outstanding-truffle tagliatelle looked heavy when it arrived but it was delicate and delicious. Steak was cooked perfectly and both portions were more than plentiful. We left full and happy and look forward to coming back.
