Service a little slow. Hostess looked liked she rolled out of bed. Bathrooms not clean. Food was good.

Reservations was at 9:15, was rushed because they closed at 10pm. Waiter was not attentive and left for long periods of time only returning to remind us of closing time. Salmon was undercooked and had to be sent back! Not at all what we expected!

My server Rob was so amazing and helpful I never once had to wait or go looking for him. He went above and beyond. From my event planner Darcy being helpful and making it easy I was glad I celebrated my Mother In Law birthday there.

Server was fantastic and only redeeming factor. The food was just okay. Not alot of option and nothing special, most especially for the price. Oysters 2.50-3.00 each and no discount for order by dozen, etc. Also found several pea crabs in them which is a turn off and should be cleaned out per standard by restaurants. First time I have experienced pea crabs at a nicer resturant! Left with $400 dollar bill (4 people with a 3 rounds of drinks, apps, entrees) which is fine but say ALL still hungry!!!

We dined here after visiting the Baltimore National Aquarium. It’s a perfect walking distance away (even walking in rain). We sat in the bar area & had Shakira as our server. She was fantastic! Incredibly personable and honest with menu recommendations. We started with the oysters which were priced very reasonable, displayed well and tasted great! Then we had the wings and saffron risotto. And the chicken Brie flatbread. The drinks were equally great. For a rainy Baltimore sad type feel of a day, this restaurant and Shakira perked us up!

The food was amazing. I ordered the short rib entree with mashed potatoes and veggies and it was very filling. It was seasoned and moist. No complaints at all!

Hostess did not want to seat us at 715, said they were only taking their reservations bc they had a busy day (restaurant was fairly open) tried to sit at bar instead and they wouldn't seat us bc of COVID restrictions. As we were leaving I made a reservation online, turned around and walked back in and said I had a reservation and the same hostess reluctantly sat us while rolling her eyes. Upon sitting our waiter told us about how busy they have been yet was happy to make money. We ordered wine and apps, the waiter dropped the wine on the table and zoomed off without any sort of wine service. Was not starting out well, but he was attentive and nice. The food however saved this experience. Everything was delicious and the prices were good. Just a bizarre start to this dining experience.

The hostess was rude and did not communicate well. We were waiting to be seated when we had a reservation for a good 20 minutes. When all she had to say was were short staffed please bare with us. But instead she tried to ignore us. Once we sat down our waitress was great, very nice, accommodating and apologized for the wait. Took forever to get our food, but I can appreciate good customer service. I’ll be back and hopefully I have a better experience.

We were able to get a table very quickly after we arrived. There was a slight issue with open table's reservations: we were able to reserve a time fifteen minutes in advance and the restaurant did not have a table open at first; however, the host was very professional and kind. She got us a table in a timely manner. The food here was quite possibly the best meal I have ever. Jezell was our bartender/server. He was very quick, professional, and personable. Despite having multiple guests in the bar area, he provided superb service. This was our first time in Baltimore and we will definitely return to Blackwall Hitch if we are in the area. They are doing some great things!

Worst dining experience I’ve had in a long time. Hostess was rude and inattentive. I had reservations but was told I could sit in the bar while we wait since we were early. She placed us at a high top. She didn’t give us menus or anything but we waited for a server. Well there is no server. The bartenders wait the high tops. Well they were staring at us and made no effort to greet us or take our drink orders. I decided I’d rather just wait for our table, so I go back to the hostess who said she checked me in at the high top, sound away with my table reservation. Huh? I didn’t tell you to do that! So she says I will have to wait til the reservation time if she reinstated it. I say fine, meanwhile there are SIX tables that would seat six people that haven’t been cleaned just sitting there. Two parties waiting (to include mine) and six empty tables and we are still waiting. Long story short, the hostess was nastier each time I asked for an update. I spoke to the manager and he didn’t acknowledge the poor service. The tables weren’t turned quick at all. When we finally got seated, the table across from us still had dirty plates, glasses and napkins. What a view. Ambiance? Yeah right. Food and drinks took forever. There were THREE private parties I later found out which is why we got the poor, slow service. Our server was nice. She did the best she could given the incompetent front house and management, hence the one star. I would never dine here again or recommend it. Food was on par with TGI Fridays. Way overpriced for the quality. Don’t waste your time, money, or craving for good food on this place.

Everything was really good! It was our first time coming to this restaurant and for the most part, had a great time. One thing that was very odd was that they charge you if you get a refill of water. I paid the same amount for a beer that I did for a refill of water. What kind of rule is that?

My friend and I got brunch here for her birthday. I liked the ambience of the restaurant; from the design of the establishment to the music that played, the vibe was great. The menu was not bad; however, I personally wanted an omelette which was an item that wasn't on the menu. I was told from our waiter that changes couldn't be made in regards to having items made there were not on the menu. Speaking of our waiter, we were waited by Wolfgang, and he provided excellent service. We enjoyed his candor and kindness as well as general banter in our brief interaction with him. Overall, I liked the place a lot, and would definitely come back again. I do not regret my decision in the slightest to choose that place to eat for my friend's birthday. Lastly, I appreciate the ease provided for reserving a table at this restaurant via Open table as it created a smooth process for arriving and being seated within a reasonable time unlike other places where walk-in may be the only option.

Great food, but seemed like there weren’t enough servers for outside seating. Also loud by the street when many groups of motorcycles went by that night (which probably does not happen often). Would definitely come again!

Great restaurant! This was my first time visiting Baltimore and people raved about this restaurant on social media so I had to try it. I am allergic to seafood and got the Bayou Penne without shrimp... it was delicious!!

The ambiance was great with how they designed the space! I can't recall the exact name, but I had the trident broiler, which was good, but a bit expensive for the taste. The pesto salmon was not flavorful, given that it was coupled with a bed of mashed potatoes. However, the crab cake and remoulade sauce were amazing. I'd highly recommend the crab cake dish coupled with the crab drip and their drinks.

Overall, I would recommend anyone that's visiting Baltimore Harbor to stop by!
