    My family had an amazing meal at Water for Chocolate on a Saturday night. The service was attentive, friendly, and helpful. The venue is intimate and the open kitchen and friendly service made the night feel like an evening with a personal chef. The food was extraordinary. Our family favorites were the nitro shrimp, a halibut special, and the sweet potato bread pudding. The server thoughtfully removed cilantro from my daughter's food after she mentioned that she doesn't like it. This restaurant is really something special and a perfect spot for a long meal with lots of conversation and exceptional food.

    Overall, the food experience was great. It was only one waiter for the entire restaurant, which made getting our food challenging. The chef is very personable

    Carlos was an excellent server. Food was among the best in Baltimore. Pleasant venue. One wish: a menu that doesn’t require smartphone. For so many reasons.

    Warm and quaint space, friendly staff and amazing food. I even had the opportunity to thank the owner for our French Toast order, which was not only delicious, it was the last of the day.

    We’ve been to WFC a few times and never a disappointment. However, this was the first time we had brunch. The French Toast is heavenly! The shrimp and grits, amazing!!! Keep in mind that this is all made by the hands of one Chef. We will continue to come back for special occasions ❤️

    This was one of the best dining experiences I ever had and I fine dine very often. The most delectable food I’ve had in recent memory. It was incredible! Can’t believe they’ve been there for 17 years and this was my first time going. The portions were generous as well. Baltimore’s best kept secret! I’ll definitely be a regular moving forward.

    I didn’t know what to expect, and we kind of picked this restaurant randomly based on some of the reviews and feedback. From the time we walked through the door, we were greeted warmly. The waiter warned us that it was a lot of food in our experience was right, but not only was there a high quantity of food, but the quality was great too. You could see everyone was enjoying themselves. We were never rushed through our meal and had a wonderful time. If you enjoy good food, service, and atmosphere put this on your list.
