Server was really good and attentive to our needs, food unfortunately was average. Ordered the Brussels sprouts for appetizer and they were extremely over cooked, couldn’t really eat them. Lunch entrees just ok, nothing that will want me to come back. I do love the location, hope the menu improve by spring, as will be nice to dine outside by the water

This was first visit to The Waterfront Kitchen, and we enjoyed it. The only challenge was that we went during restaurant week and didn't have the option of ordering off the main menu like other places offer during restaurant week. Besides that, every item ordered was delicious, the wait staff was attentive, and the view was good eye candy. I would recommend this restaurant.

I had a reservation for 3 on a very cold night so we were nearly the only people in the restaurant! The food was wonderful and had plenty of time to enjoy our meal and drinks. Wonderful place for a special occasion, in this case a Christmas gift!

The place was nearly empty for a Saturday night, but the food was delicious and service was great. Still kind of curious why there were so few people, as the rest of Fell's was incredibly busy!

Have been here regularly but something was way off this past Friday.

Having one big group seemed to distract the servers who were embarrassingly slow and inattentive to our small business group.

My halibut was over cooked.

Disappointing evening.

Very nice experience! My girl friend works right in the area and had been to every other restaraunt around there except this one, and she thoroughly enjoyed it, as did I. A little stingy with the bread LOL, but otherwise everything was great!

As much as we have enjoyed the Waterfront Kitchen on our past visits, we had a somewhat disappointing dinner experience. The evening view is spectacular if you manage to get seated on the outside deck area. However, we weren't thrilled with the meal itself. The crab dip and
the entrees were very salty. Also, the greens did not seem to be rinsed off enough or maybe at all, making them gritty (and a bit scary) to chew. My advice would be to tone down the salt a bit and spend some time rinsing off the greens.
Hopefully, our experience was an anomaly, as we have had great dinners there in the past.

We were served tardily and sloppily, and received entrees with ingredients different from those on the menu. Scallops were raw and apple cobbler came in black metal pans that the paint had leached into the dessert. After eating paint we insisted that the dinner be comped. The restaurant complied but that doesn’t make up for ingesting paint.

We liked the idea that the produce is locally grown and they use local youth to keep the garden but two of the three meals at our table were very oversalted. Atmosphere is nice and the waterfront view is beautiful but our waiter also appeared to have too many tables and run off his feet working the inside and the patio.

The food was overly salty (calamari and crab cake entree) and overly priced for what you receive.

We were looking for a quiet Sunday brunch spot far enough away from the crazy bar crowd before the Ravens/Steelers football game and found this hidden waterfront dining gem. Fabulous food and service! You can sit outside right next to the water or grab an indoor dining table with spectacular waterfront views while sipping your brunch cocktail. This is a $6 cab ride from the stadium, but well worth the trip. I will be back.

Most importantly, although it definitely felt like a "nicer" place, my kids felt very welcome!!!

Ambiance was wonderful. On the water. $9 - 5 oz wine... ode to Baltimore dessert was incredible so between that and being on the water, it was a wonderful evening! Menu was limited and Caesar salad and crab pasta dish (w/o chili spice) ok; neither very flavorful.

Everything about this restaurant was fabulous, from the food down to the service. The appetizers, main course, and the desserts were delicious. Our waiter was informative, casual, and friendly. The chef even stopped by to say hello. My group is looking forward to returning to see what will be different on the menu.

The food was delicious! Fresh and innovative cuisine. The problem was the service...when we arrived no one was at the front desk to assist...it took about 5 minutes. Since there was no outside seating at that time they offered us a table by the window...which would have been nice but instead it was close to the windows and door to the outside. But the weakest part was the service...slow and the only part of the menu the server really was excited about and knew was the desserts. We would go back because of the food...hoping the service will be better so then we will feel comfortable bringing friends.

So disappointed in this restaurant. Our service was lackluster at best. We would go through long periods of no one coming to our table and then all of sudden three people would stop and ask if we needed anything. It took a long time between our appetizers and entrees and the food was described better than it actually tasted.

Our party of three enjoyed a quiet dinner here on a Tuesday evening. Due to the bad weather the restaurant was almost empty, but the service was efficient and pleasant. Most of the entrees were fish or shellfish, however, I had a wonderful Chicken Marsala. Our adult son enjoyed a soft-shelled crab offering and my wife liked her tuna dinner. Food was delicious. Plenty of parking nearby at reasonable rates and the view of the harbor is terrific. Will look forward to returning.

I brought a friend from our of town because I knew the location was terrific. Food was very good. I had scallops and she had salmon both perfectly and beautifully prepared. The waterfront was beautiful just before sunset. My friend was very impressed with the food and view although the service was slow. The partnership with Living Classrooms for both greenhouse food production and job training is a bonus feel good. Surprised more people don't seem to know about this gem.

We had the best time at waterfront kitchen. We went for our 2 year anniversary and we got there right before a storm rolled in. The view was amazing, we got to watch right on the water and the cozy atmosphere inside was perfect. The drinks and food were also delicious. You can’t go wrong with anything on their menu!
