Very average food at a high price. Steak was poor quality, and the scallops we ordered had a funny taste. The only thing I would recommend is dessert. There are multiple restaurants in the neighborhood, and many in the city, that are far superior.

We went there for Easter Brunch and were surprised and delighted with the vast array of dishes and the creative way that the restaurant arranged the food. All of the items were fresh and the staff was very attentive to ensuring that there was never a empty item on the table. For those items that were made to order, the staff were very friendly and courteous, they were ready to engage the customers in conversation so that while you were waiting for your particular request to be created, the wait was not long or boring. We had an excellent wait staff who was prompt to fill our drinks or to remove the empty plates. I would heartily recommend the restaurant to anyone, a little pricy but the attention and service give is top marks.

If our table was not next to a couple who were fighting at a volume clearly audible to anyone within 30 feet, it would have been a perfect meal and experience. When we questioned the hostess about moving she had no suitable options (yet the restaurant was only 1/2 full. Thank goodness our waiter got involved.
Excellent food
Very nice wine list
Great view.
Needs a hostess with greater instinct for problem solving.

Pricey, but with great food. The great service is a little too fast with the food.
Sadly, an uninspired dessert menu that you'll probably skip.

Delicious and reasonably priced lunch buffet with salad, tomato bisque, salmon, muffeletta, and desserts. Crabcake was also good. Service was lovely but not particularly special. Would definitely return.

We took our granddaughter to celebrate her 18th birthday and enjoyed Old Bay chips and dip followed by three delicious lunches. An extra surprise was the tiny mousse topped with ice cream, a lighted candle and Happy Birthday written on her plate. A must stop place for lunch if you're shopping or strolling in Harbor East!

We went for Sunday brunch. Really nice. Good variety. Friendly service. The restaurant is closing soon as Mina is not going to renew but the four seasons is taking it over but my guess is they will still have a brunch. Get a table by the window. Nice harbor view.

Food was excellent. Was there alone on business, but waitstaff was wonderful. Other tables were very loud, so took away from fine dining.

this was the first time I did not have a good experience at Wit and Wisdom. the Hostess lost my dining partner--said she sat her at the bar and couldn't find her for about 30 minutes. then recalled she seated her at the table. Very rowdiy group next to us made hearing very difficult for this business meeting. Rockfish was poorly cooked--completely raw in some places. Glass of wine was very bitter but sommelier was hesitant to take it back. Other than that, the seating by the window was very nice, waitress was fine. Usually I have found it to be a great place to dine. This time, the high prices simply were not justifiable given te experience.

Very mediocre experience. Restaurant is located next to the hotel bar, with loud annoying music. Not all the items on the menu were available. Service is ok, food is ok. If you are staying in the hotel, are tired and dont want to out, this is the place for you.

So loud we couldn’t eat there. Music was horrible so loud and inappropriate. We were seated and not attended to promptly. Also two vegetarians. And very little to offer that had no meat. We finally left after sitting for 20min couldn’t even ask if he’d could accommodate us. But the music and noise level made it unbearable
