B&O American Brasserie - Hotel Monaco Ratings and Reviews

Yym and would go back!The pork cheeks was fabulous although would have been great to have slightly larger portions. Acorn squash had a surprising kick. We ordered the chicken sausage flatbread, which was filling but also tried the potato flatbread, which had subtle but potent spicy chilies. A nice treat including the Queen bee drink and the smooth hibiscus tea & lemonade

The service was excellent and enjoyable. Very personable young lady. The food was good, the meatloaf, pork and scallops were enjoyed and when different sides were requested, they happily offered substitutes. The only complaint was the onion rings. They were overly tough and doughy. Very disappointing for $8. We will return. Have dined there in the past and think Sunday is not their best day. Would recommend to others.

My brother and I came in for Thanksgiving dinner and had an amazing time.
We both ordered the pre fix menu and were not disappointed. Each course was well thought out and packed with flavor.
Our server was wonderful, and we even had the manager and Chef visit our table!
It was a beautiful evening filled with attentive staff and service. The ambiance was perfect and welcoming. The food and cocktails were flavorful, well balanced and beautifully executed.
I look forward to our next visit!!
Thanks for a great holiday!

We took a friend to B&O American Brasserie for Thanksgiving dinner. We had dined there three or four time in the past and had enjoyed the experience.
Our server was great and the cocktails ( The Queen Bee ) and dessert were terrific.
However, the dinner itself was really disappointing, dry, tasteless and very uninspired.
We were rather embarrassed that we brought our guest to such a mediocre meal for a holiday celebration. I doubt if we will return.

Truly a fantastic restaurant! I am a travel blogger and we visited over Thanksgiving. While staying at the Hotel Monaco, we ended up eating breakfast, lunch, and dinner at the B&O Brasserie and loved everything. The service was terrific and the food was delicious. Everything was fresh and beautifully presented. We really enjoyed their special Thanksgiving holiday meal. We'd definitely go back again and highly recommend it.

I stayed at the Kimpton Monaco Hotel Nov. 21-22, 2016 and had dinner at the restaurant two nights in a row. The first night I ordered soup and pizza that were good and roasted beets salad that I took to go and did not try until the following day. That salad had literally a pound of salt in it and was absolutely inedible. The next night I ate there again (ordered something different this time) and mentioned about too salty salad from the night before to my waitress, and her reaction was "oh yes we know, and the kitchen has been informed". No " I am sorry or we should offer a refund, or can I offer you a free appetizer or a free drink to compensate for a bad experience" - nothing. I did not escalate it to the manager, but I hope that she/he is reading it now and would train your employees to react better to a legitimate complaint. I don't think I am coming back to your restaurant.

Maybe they were just having an off night. Some of the dishes were delicious, some were just so-so. Our table was not served at the same time, one of our party had to wait almost 20 minutes after the rest of us were served and they forgot about the sides we ordered. Her dinner and the sides eventually came. They were very accommodating and apologetic for the mistakes and offered everyone free dessert, so that was very nice. The service was very good, I do not think the problems with the food had anything to do with the wait staff.

My boss is very sensitive to noise and we had a very loud table next to us talking about inappropriate things while we were conducting a business meeting.
The waitress tried her best, it was just unfortunate they didn't have another table that was more quiet, since we were spending quite a bit. Also the food was average.

The nine dollar very small bowl of butternut squash soup had whole cloves in it. It was not nice to bite into that. My friend's cobb salad was very small, not much to it at all. I do not like the new table and chairs, either. This is usually a very nice restaurant, but I feel as if it has gone down in the last month when I went there last. I can't even remember what I ordered.

Little in the way of ambience, especially if you expect something special in a historic spot. Hard surfaces, lots of clackety noise, and the "energetic" sound level and selection of music is not conducive to a nice date night for mature clients who are paying $100+ for two, and that with just a couple of draft beers.

This was the spot my and husband and I chose to celebrated our 22nd Anniversary. Hotel accommodations, food (dinner/breakfast), customer service, and atmosphere was a 5-star rating. We had a celebratory wonderful time!

The crab cake at dinner was amazing and other menu choices were intriguing. The cocktails were fun and tasty and the service was very good. Overall a very fun night.
Ate breakfast there the next day and that was a bit of a different feel. The wait staff seemed flustered, the food was good but not as warm as it should have been.

We had a wonderful waiter--a young man working on his doctorate at Peabody--who was intelligent, articulate, attentive and didn't try to upsell. My husband and I each had the swordfish entree, which was perfectly cooked and absolutely delicious, over smashed potatoes with peas and corn shoots.
My only complaint was the uncomfortable chairs, which had no lower back support. However, I understand that the restaurant would be getting new furniture this week, so hopefully that will mean more comfortable chairs.

Great potential and a cool space but staffing was not adequate. One server for our table of 9 + 2 other tables. Food took a long time to come out and by the time it was time to go the table still was not cleared. During another visit, I put in a to go order which were sliders and cheese plate ... It took 30 minutes

The restaurant lacks any decorative touch and was very loud. The food was good and the menu had lots of options for brunch. I was disappointed that they not have more drink options-e.g., chai tea. The service was slow and not very attentive. The maitre d, however, was excellent.

when I go to a restaurant for dinner, the portions must be enough so that I do not leave hungry. That is the cardinal rule. B&O failed here. The flavor was very good, the menu had lots of enticing choices. The portions were unacceptably small. Even after dessert (usually no more than a mouthful) I was not satisfied.

Food was very good. Service was fast. I ordered breakfast. My order was on the table within 5 minutes. A little pricey but okay. One thing this restaurant has going for it is parking across the street. Street parking is Baltimore is like trying to find snail's teeth. Luckily, right across the street, there is metered parking.

Had a nice dinner here last evening. Seated right away. Host was very nice and the server super attentive. Menu, though brief, was very good. Mushroom Flatbread was an excellent choice for an appetizer - portion was perfect for four people and it was absolutely delicious. Food was consistent with a good american brasserie. The decor was nice and somewhat unique - definitely added to the experience. Would visit again.

I happened upon this place while I was serving jury duty downtown. It's nice inside, and the staff are friendly and helpful. I had the brandade and the pappardelle, both of which were very good. I probably could have been full with just the entree also.

The boss was efficient and warm without being intrusive, helped a lot the quality of service, congratulations. Standard service. Good american food. Come-and-go ambiance, which is understandable since we are in an hotel.

The house made Jerky should not be missed. It was so amazing that we ordered a "to go" order. The crafted cocktails were amazing. Other favorites were the French fries and the Scallop entree. Service was amazing as well!!!!
