You will find (in no particular order) elegant surroundings, very helpful staff, quality china, glassware, etc.polite, informed servers. But the star is the food. Small plate portions are nicely sized. Three courses leave you room for bread (nice, warm, healthy choice of 3) and complimentary dessert. You have the option of such delicacies as fried oysters, lobster bisque (huge chunks... More

We mainly go to DC for dinner and rarely go to Baltimore. So when I arrived at Charleston restaurant for our anniversary dinner, I didn't know what to expect. I had read that it has been around for a number of years, and in some ways thought it might be a bit dated. I was so happily so wrong... I... More

This place is great for a VERY special occasion as it can be a bit pricey, but worth it. Highly recommend to go at least once because I believe it is a 5 * restaurant. Can't go wrong with any of the Cindy Wolf restaurants.

No matter the occasion, Charleston is the class of the Inner Harbor. Great formal atmosphere, impressive wine list, great food and service.

This is a very good restaurant serving new American fare. We enjoyed pretty much anything we ordered. The atmosphere was upper end but relaxed. The service was excellent......try the lobster curry soup.....

The overall quality of this restaurant is by far a 5 out of 5! If you arrive early they seat you in the lounge for light refreshments. The executive chef/owner is very personable with all of her guests and she provides excellent recommendations. We ate 10 different plates during our visit and I must admit I could not pick a...

This is one restaurant that lives up to its hype. The food and wine were delightful and were matched by friendly and attentive service. Be aware that their cheese tray is an extra. The place is VERY expensive but we enjoyed it and would return.

This was our first time at Charleston Restaurant and my wife and I absolutely loved it. The service was impeccable and the food was delicious! The entrees are on the small side but we actually enjoyed this aspect because we were able to taste several different dishes without being overstuffed. It is expensive but worth it, especially for a very... More

You'll be hard pressed to find a fancier, more expensive restaurant in Baltimore. Guys, wear at least a sport coat, or you'll feel very under dressed! Super attentive, highly trained staff and remarkably delicious food will not disappoint! Very expensive and the portions are quite small, but the flavors and presentation are superb! We've managed to try many many local... More
