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

We went to Wit & Wisdom for Valentine's Day. There was a fixd price menu, but there were many options. The food was delicious. My husband and I both had a steak that was perfectly prepared. The waiter was attentive and the atmosphere was very romantic. I thought the music could have been turned down to be more background music. Overall, it was a locely evening.

We went for VDay, not knowing it was a preset meal with a $95 ticket per person. However, she deserved it so it was worth it. I will say that morally I felt bad, spending almost $300 on food in a country/city where people are starving!

They definitely packed us in, meaning we were sitting very close to another couple. Very close lol

Overall we had a great time and I'd do it again next year, with budget planning :-)

Disappointing meal. Came for Valentines Day which was a mistake on our behalf. The place was crowded and the staff seemed to be anxious and overwhelmed. The couple at the table next to us asked to have their food boxed up after their first course because they were so irritated and left. For a $500 check for two people I would expect a farrrr higher level of service and food. It came out cold and we had to ask to have our wine pairing brought over to us for our second and third courses and we were told that the 'som was just really busy' which I can understand but maybe just bring over the wine and she can come by later? At any rate we both left disappointed and ripped off.

Tables too close together...too noisy...and Valentine prix fixe menu only gave customer two choices of how you wanted beef cooked (medium rare or well). All of this for over $300 for a couple...bad deal!

I booked Wit and Wisdom for a Valentine’s Day dinner with my wife. We looked at the menu ahead of time and knew what we wanted. When we arrived for our reservation we were informed that there was a price fixe menu for the night...for $95 per person! There was no indication of this on the website or on the email confirmation. We certainly would not have gone had we known. We were expecting to spend $150-170, but instead spent $260! Overall, the food was good, but not $260 good! The plates were very small too! We left feeling a bit ripped off.

Always one of the finest dining experiences anywhere! There seafood appetizers are the freshest and abundant. Get two or three and share. All appetizers and entrees have perfect balance of multiple flavors and textures.
Service impeccable.

I recently booked a dinner date for my girlfriend for her birthday and I was worried because I actually live in Detroit so I had never seen this place being that I’m only in Baltimore to see her. She is really picky about everything but she was very happy with my choice. The whole mood was perfect from the table, view, waitress to the food. She thought it was really romantic so I scored some extra brownie points. I would suggest it to anyone that’s looking to have a classy night out with some good food and a great vibe.

This is by far the best brunch around. They have a large variety of food and everything is amazing!

Really outstanding meal and service; everything we ordered was distinctively tasty and prepared with outstanding attention to detail. Our server's recommendations were right on.

I personally found the background music -- which was techno-dance and overloud when the restaurant was not crowded -- a distraction. But maybe I'm just not hip enough.
