Service
 
"Swimmingly fresh" fish is whisked from the ice display to be "prepared simply and beautifully" in the "delectable Greek style" before being filleted tableside at this "authentic" Fells Point Hellenic seafood specialist; "knowledgeable" servers and an "elegant, relaxed atmosphere" help make it a "perennial favorite" for those "willing to pay" the "heavy price tag."

Excellent food in a marvelous atmosphere. Everything I tasted was wonderful including ceviche, fish soup, broiled bronzini trimmed at the table, and lamb shank in a marvelous brown gravy. Well I suppose not everything was great. The deserts leave much to be desired. Baklava ice cream seems like a cheap shot. And cobbler was some odd combination of fruit and dough and ice cream.

Black Olive used to be my favorite and "go-to" restaurant in Baltimore. This last visit, however, was most disappointing. The fish selection was limited - and the service was very, very slow. Almost inattentive. My friend's salmon was not seasoned properly. Nor was my lamb. My glass of wine was from a bottle that had been opened at least two days earlier, as it was "musty". I never thought I would submit a bad review about the Black Olive.

We went here for restaurant week and it was a treat. The atmosphere is quiet, staff was friendly and knowledgeable. A few menu items were unavailable but multiple options were offered in place. They offer quite an extensive wine list. Did I mention the food was delicious. I had a flavorful and fresh Greek salad, rockfish filet was nicely cooked and the carrot cake was out of this world. I hope we have a chance to return soon.
