the most beautiful resturaunt in baltimore – my wife and i had dinner for 2 on friday night. she took me for our 15th anniversery. to keep it short it was the best anniversery dinner we ever had. the staff was very friendly food was original and tasty. all in all not expensive either. the great part about the resturaunt is that after afew cocktails and a nice meal you can head upstairs to a nice lounge with leather chairs, fishtanks, beautiful cocktail waitress and good music, to say the least id highly recommend it for any important date.
There is nothing like this in Baltimore!!! Look out South Beach! – You would never know, it is like walking into an oasis. I stumbled on to it buy suprise, I was in the area, Had such a great time I booked a holiday party. We were amazed!! The food is great I had the Chesapeak sampler, Filet, Rockfish & Crab cake, Three entrees on the same plate with individuale sides and all, really cool. It looked awsome and ate 5 stars. It is definetly a spot for the up and comming professional. All of the sofistication of great restaurants and lounges with out being stuffy. It has that layed back sofisticated feel like Miami. The drinks are priced right to keep out the "run of the mill" croud very top shelf, from the bar to the food, and soooo much fun.
"Security" ruins otherwise 'par' club experience – Slow service, interesting food selection (they had a lot of different appetizers with dipping sauces, etc.), but the most rude and unnecessarily physical bouncers/"security officers" I have ever encountered in 2 years at bars and clubs in Baltimore. There is a *required* $3 coat check, you are not allowed to take your coat upstairs, and if you accidentally walk upstairs with your coat there is a decent chance a 200-pound security guard missing some teeth will literally pick you up while yelling at you and carry you downstairs. Also, I arrived with a group of around 40 and they let only 5 people in at a time (so the entrance with the mandatory $3 coat check wasn't too full) and forced everyone else to stand outside in the cold. Upstairs, the bartenders were not particularly personable and the drinks were not very good - my date got a lemon drop martini that came half full and tasted like water, and the only drink I got that tasted good (in a $50 tab) was scotch--which only requires a glass and some scotch, but I wouldn't put it past them to screw it up.
Bottom line: the only good thing was the music.
