    Had a delicious meal before attending a show at the Hippodrome. Had tasty craft cocktails and shared the garlic parm fries & duck wings appetizers and then a pork porterhouse with fingerling sweet potatoes with cooked peaches. Staff was attentive and courteous. Would go back.

    Our server, Dominic, was great! He was knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. The food was delicious. The only thing I would mention is that I emailed a question a few days in advance and never heard from anyone. I’m not sure anyone is checking the email. Other than that it was a great experience.

    The small number of overwhelmed staff worked very extremely hard to serve a good meal but the restaurant looks like it is partially closed and dying. The staff was remarkable given all the circumstances and the food was actually very good. Just a weird situation.

    The duck drummets were delicious. I had the pork porterhouse and loved it. My husband had the skate and also loved it. Desserts were also delicious. But the best part of our dinner was our server, Dominic. He was incredible! He was funny, easily answered any questions we had, made great recommendations, was attentive, and gave great conversation.

    Reserved for dinner ahead of event at Hippodrome theatre. Menu has been severely reduced since my last visit. Cocktails and burgers were fine. Would have liked to watched something other than ESPN but it appeared there were issues with broadcast stations.

    Calamari was terrible. So rubbery and chewy. Crab toast had lots of jumbo lump crab but was bland. Fries were okay. Crab soup was good! Salmon and chicken on the kale salads was not good. Menu was sooo tiny (burger, crab cake, fettuccine were the only entree choices!). We ordered a bottle of rosé which posed a challenge as they only had one type of bottle of rosé which was listed by the glass… this caused confusion for the server and apparently the bar. They agreed to “let” us buy the bottle for the price of 4x the glasses. Usually when you buy a bottle of wine it is less than the 4x glass cost! Overall really disappointing and nothing like pre-pandemic B&O experiences.

    Small menu ergo a lot of attention paid to each dish. All of the food was just wonderful, high quality ingredients, and fresh. Their crème brûlée was hands down the best I have ever had. The tiramisu gave it a run for its money.

    While the wait staff was very enthusiastic and helpful, I have to say that $18 for the burger I received was not a good value. The burger was very small and thin - like a burger from Five Guys or something. The toppings and the bun were great, but the burger itself got lost in the bun and toppings.

    Met a friend here for dinner. Had an excellent crab cake, almost no filler just big pieces of crab. Highly recommend the espresso crème brûlée it was outstanding. Nice ambience, although the music was loud and made it hard to carry on a conversation. Good service overall. Be prepared to pay $11 for valet parking if you decide to go that route.

    I truly enjoyed the mood here and and the service, however, the food could of been better. My friend ordered a steak meal and it looked very burnt. Not even appealing. She sent that back and they bought her out a crab cake meal but it was burnt. The crab cake meal I had was made just right. The appetizer was burnt as well. Overall the experience was nice. The server was very pleasant.

    I want to preface my review to say, I think they were short-staffed -- like every place these days. Really small menu -- again, probably because of staffing issues. There were four of us -- food came out at different times; two that had salads came out first; then 10 minutes later a sandwich; and then 10 minutes later my burger came out. Food was okay. I'd try it again, but not for a while.

    My issue is that the menu that is online does not match what is at the restaurant. We would not have even made the reservation had we known those menu items weren’t listed. It’s a very small menu and limited I understand the pandemic but menu should be updated online it’s false advertisement none of the items on the menu online are at the restaurant. The service was great that’s all I can really say. Management needs to fix that your setting the staff up for failure the waiter said that multiple customers brought up my issue as well. So why isn’t it fixed?

    Sadly, the menus online aren’t accurate at the moment. It’s presumably due to the pandemic, but it would’ve been nice to know in advance that their current menu is so limited. That being said, the crab cake sandwich was solid, and the caesar solid ROCKED. My cocktail was nice. It was pretty empty when we came in, but as it got later the dining room filled up, and service suffered from there. Not to say our server wasn’t friendly or anything, he just wasn’t around much.

    My daughter and I came for brunch before going to see “Wicked.” And I’d stayed at the Kimpton Monaco hotel in Seattle the week before; wanted to give the company my business. Everything about our experience was impeccable: The service was excellent and so was the food. Prices were extremely reasonable and the portions were huge! My daughter had a breakfast sandwich and I had the Chesapeake omelette which had crab, bacon, asparagus and cheese, topped with hollandaise. The roasted potatoes served with our meals were delicious. Even the toast that came with my omelette was over the top! We also enjoyed our Bloody Marys. I can’t wait to go back!!!

    Nice place to eat. Service was excellent. What was billed as a "filet mignon" special tasted more like a flank steak in slices, I believe. Still tasty. Crispy mushroom side is outstanding.

    Our server Dominic made this experience wonderful. He was very personable and knowledgeable about menu items and very welcoming and friendly. We had the charcuterie plate and on his recommendation I tried the catfish and grits which was melt-in-the-mouth flavorful just a hint of heat as he had extolled it. My dining companion had the steak frites and the steak was perfectly done with plenty of frites to go around. The raspberry sorbet was a perfect dessert to finish off with and bursting with raspberry flavor. We ate upstairs which was warmer and a bit quieter than the bar area downstairs

    Unremarkable brunch options at above-average prices. Service was pleasant but sparse. A bit of delay in getting seated at the time the table was reserved. The location is very convenient to the Baltimore Convention Center, though, making it a good option for anyone who doesn't want to take taxis long distances.

    My dinner was delicious but my wife had the Prime Rib and said it was cold. Plus, it took forever to get our food. Wonder if the kitchen was backed up. We arrived early for our reservation and were told our table would be ready but I think they forgot about us because our friends showed up and the hostess said we had already been seated. Not sure if I will go back. Too many hiccups. I put Yes that I would recommend but with reservations.

    Plan to spend 3 hours on dinner, not because you ordered 5 courses but because the service is extremely slow. Make sure you know what you want before the server comes or good luck getting him back. Food was good but not worth the wait.
