    We had Thanksgiving dinner yesterday at B&O Brasserie. It was one of the few non- chain restaurants open, and the only one I found with a Thanksgiving menu. The meal was delicious and the service impeccable. This is definitely going to become one of our “go to” places when we’re in the city!

    What service! A Sunday morning in a city hotel. Great greeting & wonderful service from the beginning. We were a group of friends connecting & it was perfect. Blueberry muffins were amazing! We love this hotel for many reasons but enjoyed breakfast/brunch without staying there.

    Menu is not what it used to be. Service was okay but had to wait a while for someone to come to us on our anniversary. Disappointed. Used to be so good and now it is subpar at best

    We were looking forward to a great meal but the menu was beyond disappointing -- it consisted of 3 salads, 2 chicken entrees, a burger and a tuna steak, plus some pizzas and pastas. Menu has apparently been cut way back recently -- all those beautiful pix on their website of scallops, veal chops, lamb shank, lobster, beet salad, octopus, crabcakes, something with a squash blossom on top...yeah, none of that is on the menu any longer. FALSE ADVERTISING, people. I asked if they'd put a crabcake (from the HH menu -- there are *no* crabcakes on the regular menu) on the caesar salad for me and the manager told the waiter no. Ultimately I had a salad, which was fine (greens were fresh, dressing a tad watery) and hubby had a burger, also fine. We felt badly for our waiter, who was just back from being out for a knee injury for the past month and got assigned to the tables in the loft area...meaning that in the hour we were there, he had to walk up and down the steps about 15 times.

    We were traveling in from out of town to see a show at the Hippodrome, and ended up being quite late to our reservation due to traffic. We explained to the hostess and server who were both very understanding and accommodating. We were able to order and eat quickly. The food was great, and we were in time for our show.

    The restaurant was not busy when we arrived which seemed like a bad sign but we were immediately at ease due to great service and wonderful food. The Chesapeake Omelet is absolutely filled with crab and delicious. We also had chicken and waffles and the French toast. We at every last bite. It's a bit pricey but we'd go back in a heartbeat.

    I made a reservation for 11:30 AM thru this app. I arrived at the restaurant at 11:30 AM and was told it doesn’t open until 4 PM. A staff member called me at 11:30 AM while I was standing in front of the restaurant to let me know they could not accept my reservation because they were closed. Please update your hours of operation.

    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.
