Great views and a lively feel, calamari appetizer was outstanding. Both seafood entrees were overpriced and undersized. We'd return for drinks and apps.

Menu had good choices but perhaps might have offered more than one fish/seafood dish for the main course. But everything we had was delicious.

The food wasn't good. Mushroom room had too much pepper. Squash was too hard. However, the views, atmosphere, and service was excellent!!

Outing with coworkers. The drinks were amazing but the portion size compared to price paid is ridiculous. I ordered the scallop pasta, it was very tasty but the portion size was very small. It felt like an appetizer rather than a dinner portion. I will perhaps return for the ambience and drinks only, but never for dinner! Also, the service was poor. I actually had to waive down concierge to ask for our waiter to come back to our table after serving us water only.

Date night with great ambiance, music and service. Sat in a booth with beautiful view of Baltimore lit up on a fall night. Ordered delicious cocktails and bottle of wine for fair price (not exactly a steal either). Would come back again!

Food was great, restaurant is beautiful. But they charge a fee for 6 people or more in a group and was not made aware of this until the bill came

Good food, Terrible ambiance, Way too loud.

Music played by the restaurant made it worse, as patrons had to shout over it.

Some of the best food I have ever eaten. The combination of flavors and textures for each dish were wonderful and unique. We ordered the Tuna tataki, scallop pasta, mushroom soup, Chilean sea bass, and short rib for dinner and the Napoleon for dessert. Everything was excellent!

Delicious drinks, food, and superb ambiance. Quite the treat for our-of-town friends. A little too loud for deep conversation, but would be great for a date night. From appetizers to entrees, drinks to dessert and coffee, the combination of flavors and presentation were worth every penny! (The sorbet was a bit too solid/frozen to have any flavor, but they replaced it for us).

Seafood (octopus, calamari, branzino), meats (short rib, chicken), and salad were all excellent. Compliments to the Chef! Staff was exceptionally courteous and helpful! HIGHLY recommend! Must-visit site while in Bmore!

My husband and I came to celebrate our 1 year anniversary. The food was delicious, but service was a little slow. Totally understandable, given it was toward the end of brunch. One thing that did really annoy me was that our table basically didn’t fit us. At some point, the booths had been shifted and both my husband and I had very little room to move. The next table over had plenty of space. They might want to check on their booth spacing.

The meal was disappointing. My octopus was slimy and poorly prepared. The bread basket with the focaccia bread was stale. The hostess had a very cold demeanor and when I asked if I could have the empty table next to the window was rudely told that it was reserved. Throughout the whole evening, it was empty!!
