Service
 
Cindy Wolf remains "at the top of her game" , applying "world-class technique" to "Lowcountry" cuisine to create "phenomenal" New American masterpieces at her Harbor East "destination" ; "no detail goes unnoticed" by the "superlative" staffers, who "spoil" guests with selections from co-owner Tony Foreman's "epic" wine list in a "stunningly beautiful" space; just "be prepared" for the multicourse menu's "sticker shock" – for many, it's a "once-every-few-years kind of place."

Great fancy place if you want to treat yourself or your loved ones to something really special. Food is absolutely amazing. I can recommend the Lobster Curry (seasonal), the Roasted Veal Sweetbread and the Lamb Chops. Also I would recommend wine pairing with the courses. If you don't like that, the wine list is enormous. We had the four courses plus dessert (that comes with the menu) and left the place with our bellies full of deliciousness. Even the dessert was outstanding considering that neither me nor my partner have a sweet tooth.

This is the finest restaurant in Baltimore, hands down. Perhaps in the Mid-Atlantic. The service is always impeccable, and the food!! Gah! Don't miss the rich lobster soup with curry (with the wine pairing!) but really you can't go wrong.

I must say that this was one of the most uninspired meals I have ever eaten. The service was also an unmitigated train wreck. Our waiter (sorry, no inflated titles from me) was insistent that we move our baby seat, which was tucked away under the table and in a corner of the restaurant. After, we failed to see the importance of removing what was essentially a non-obstacle, HRH Ms Wolf herself came to inform us that she was "not at all comfortable" with a baby seat positioned (sans baby) at the corner of our table. When I politely asked her what would be her solution to the issue, she replied: "I don't know, I don't have children." My niece and nephew made the trip from London to join me for my birthday - Charleston was NOT my choice from the beginning - food is a HUGE YAWN, but I regrettably relented. Thanks for serving utterly unremarkable food in a profoundly pretentious setting. This is thankfully the last time I will be dragged to this awful place. The solo star is the mandatory rating to even post this warning to the uninitiated. My true rating is -5.
