Local food, local restaurant, and not a "trendy place". You want top quality - this is as close as Baltimore has gotten to 5 stars in food/service/drinks/experience. I've been many times and never failed to leave completely satisfied. Food may not always be to everyone's most preferred taste and thus you may feel you don't want to spend $$$$ -... More

The difference between true five-star restaurants and all the rest is they always rise to the occasion. And Charleston did exactly that on our recent visit. We arrived quite early for our 9:00 pm reservation after a long day at the Preakness and were quite happy to learn that we would be seated before 9p. But as we waited in... More

Found the cost ridiculous, almost embarrassing ... spend about $300.00 for a mall for 2. Everything was excellent, although portions were small. Presentation was lovely. Have been to other restaurants with nicer ambiance. Certainly with going once.

Be prepared to stay a while. Individualized attention. This is no chain-type restaurant experience. Each dish is prepared exquisitely and oh so yummy. A very special place to go.

I haven’t been back to this excellent restaurant for several years and I should kick myself. The setting is first rate - many tables have a Baltimore Harbor view. The service is always first rate - friendly and inviting. Most importantly the executive chef, Cindy Wolf, is a true master of her trade. I love the premise here of fixed... More

With high expectations we visited and enjoyed a four course selection from their extensive menu. Greeted graciously and without pretense, we sat at a lovely table with spacing between diners that kept distractions away. Back pillows were offered and tucked in comfortably. Rolls were of different variety and presented individually. Highlights were: Asparagus w hard boiled egg Fried oysters Fried... More

From the flawless service, to the great menu, to the super high quality food and wine, this was the best meal and selection of food items I have ever experienced. As I think back on other fine dinners this past year in Paris, Florence, Rome, and San Francisco, last night's dinner glows even brighter. Fried oysters with champagne are a... More

We found this restaurant last minute while spending the weekend in Baltimore. The service was excellent and the food was even better. We would travel to Baltimore just to dine at this exquisite restaurant.
