About the restaurant
It all began with a love story and a dream. Linwood, a chef, and Ellen, a reporter, met 36 years ago in a restaurant of course! They married and began to envision that someday they would open a restaurant of their own. The restaurant’s first business plan was written at their dining room table on an electric typewriter. In 1988 Linwoods opened its doors, and it has been a labour of love for more than thirty years.

Linwoods’ cuisine consists of the freshest ingredients, and inventive preparation. Our service is warm and attentive. We have developed a reputation for consistency an attention to detail. These qualities are key to our catering business as well. Our team has worked hard to connect to our community, and we value our customers. These values have been central to Ellen and Linwood’s vision, and we hope are felt by our customers each day.

Every little thing was perfect. Linwoods has very high standards and they meet it every time we eat here. Linwoods is the perfect place for a celebratory occasion. The sea bass entree is one of the best dishes we've ever had. This place and its people are a treasure.

About the restaurant
18th & 21st brings something fresh and classic to Columbia, Maryland. Named after the Constitutional Amendment that enacted Prohibition and then subsequent Amendment that repealed it, 18th & 21st promises to bring back a bygone era through an elevated, tailored evening experience. Our food and cocktails reflect the feel of prohibition supper clubs. This not to say we're stuck in the past, but rather that we try and emulate the style of that era. That means beautiful presentation, careful crafting, and perfect pairings to keep your night on beat. Combined with live music, this creates an unparalleled experience for the discerning and adventurous looking for a sophisticated evening. Due to the nature of the experience at 18th & 21st we request that all diners be over the age of eighteen.

Great time as usual. We were fortunate to have Angel as our server again; she wasn't supposed to be there but was covering for someone. We did not try the specials, but our starters and entrees from the regular menu were perfectly prepared. The musical guest made for the perfect accompaniment to the meal. Finally, first time coming in on a Sunday night and pleasantly surprised the place was nearly packed and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.

Our six course Chef's menu at Tersiguel's is a combination of authentic French-style cooking and rustic country fare reminiscent of cuisine found in Tersiguel's original home of Brittany, France. Tersiguel's cuisine is reflective of the seasons, with a garden that produces lettuces, herbs, vegetables, fruits and edible flowers. Tersiguel's is quintessential French Country "from the farm to your plate" cooking. Chef Tersiguel describes his food as "French soul food". The Tersiguel family has operated one of the regions best restaurants for over 45 years and continues this tradition with annual ratings of "Best French Restaurant" from the Zagat and Baltimore Magazine.

Returning customers. We were pleased to have Liam as our server once again: really enjoy his energy and expertise. The tables in the lounge/wine store area are quieter with a little more “elbow room”, so that was great as well. It was very nice to have a relaxing dinner at our pace accompanied by good food and wine. We had the staple NY Strip and the Lamb Chops, which were prepared perfectly.

About the restaurant
In May 2021, this 40year-old-neighborhood gem on a hill underwent a full renovation. Venetian Palace is now sporting new digs with crisp modern decor and an expanded wine list. The impetus for the revamp was new ownership. Yes, the rumors are true... Valentino’s Restaurant Group which began in NE Baltimore city has now come to Harford County!

The food is better than ever, with highlights being the seafood pasta, the jumbo lump crab cakes, the grilled lamb chops, artisan handhelds, and the breakfast choices served all day.  Whether you are dining in or picking up carry-out do not forget the dessert!

Come as you are, the staff is knowledgeable and ready to serve.  We also offer our entire menu for carryout.  For your convenience, The Venetian Italian Eatery has teamed with Doordash, GrubHub & Uber Eats.  

Buon appetito!
