B&O American Brasserie - Hotel Monaco Ratings and Reviews
I brought my clients here for dinner only because I was staying in the hotel and I assumed, based on my experience in other cities, a Monaco Hotel restaurant has to have its stuff together. I was dead wrong. Awful service which included a comment from our stressed-out-looking waitress (who looked like she was just handed a tray without training); "We have a big group upstairs so, I have no idea when your drinks or dinner will be ready. I have no control over the bar or the kitchen". Wow!! Really??
The food is decent for a quick bite and upstairs bar is perfect for an obnoxiously loud office staff happy hour.
Otherwise, avoid at all cost if your goal is to have a sophisticated dinner with a business associate.
The server was barely present. We were a party of 7. 2 of my friends came about 10 minutes after we were seated and it took them 30 minutes to get water and utensils. After the server came over to take our order (30+ minutes), it took over 45 minutes for our food to come out. In the meantime, the server never came over to see how we were doing or explain the wait. My friend had to find her and inquire about the order twice! Highly disappointed in the service and the food didn't wow any of us. I expected more.
We enjoyed this restaurant. Love that it is in a historic building. The atmosphere is lovely. Our food was good ,but not as good as it should have been for the price. $30 entries. Great place for specialty drinks. Service was also good. Not my favorite Baltimore restaurant, yet glad we tried it.
My daughter and I went to Easter brunch this past Sunday. They advertised as it being something special because of the holiday. The atmosphere was nothing special. It felt like a typical Sunday eating out. I would suggest offering a band or something holiday oriented to set the meal/experience apart from just another Sunday. Especially since the price was $40 per person for brunch.
The food was good and the service was good. Make B&O stand out! :-)
Looking for convenient and memorable dinner experience while visiting Baltimore's inner harbor for the evening. The choices in inner harbor were limited for us-too crowded with long wait times so this place seemed a better option. It's a short walk but worth it! Excellent food and service. The menu is limited for non-red meat eaters but kitchen is accommodating. We chose the flatbread with chicken sausage and the crab cake entree-plenty of food to share and excellent. Attention to detail, with delicious sauces. Loved it! Although we didn't drink any alcohol, the wine list is extensive and excellent. Mixed drinks sounded delicious! Would definitely come back!
food was very good. crab cake was excellent. the other people in my group all loved their food as well. My big issue was the ambience of the restaurant. No atmosphere what so ever. It was a Sunday night so it wasn't that busy but we all felt that the place looked run down and needed some upgrades . tables looked shabby. I hadn't been in several years but I've always felt that the food was good but the atmosphere was never quite right. They need to pay more attention to the actual restaurant.
Our group of 6 all enjoyed the food and drinks. We shared two small plates and got a flatbread pizza for an appetizer and then everyone tried different things from the menu for entree. Everyone was pleased with their meals. I had the scallops which were cooked perfectly and surrounded by root vegetables that were a really nice accompaniment. The Queen B cocktail was refreshing and was the perfect start. The servers were attentive, knew the menu and made good recommendations.
We were late for our 730 reservation. They held the table, but were slow at the time. Arrival experience very good, host friendly and helpful, friendly but not very attentive for a slow night. Wine list short and uninspired. Menu offerings very creative, ribeye tasty but not great quality. Sunday special meatloaf good, but not great. Key lime pie average at best, but pot de creme very good.
The food was good but not great, our server seemed like she was trying to rush us, and the decor of the restaurant was super outdated. I felt like I was out at a restaurant that was really cool like 15 years ago. I can think of a lot of other places that are way more worth the money.
A very popular bar/restaurant located in an elegant, historic building in center city Baltimore. It was very busy on the Thursday night I went there for dinner, but the staff was able to seat me quickly. I got butternut squash soup and french fries and a glass of wine; all delicious and reasonably priced. The waitress had to be reminded to bring my glass of wine, but in general the dinner went smoothly & I would certainly eat there again. Probably a bit noisy if you're wanting quiet conversation.
Based on our experience, I'd recommend making a reservation for dinner, in order to avoid a long wait, and avoiding the brunch altogether.
Regarding the "panning" of the brunch: The food was okay, but the service was incredibly slow. It was more than 45 minutes before we got anything besides orange juice and coffee (not even ice water). Our server forgot things, every time we asked, and had to be reminded. Probably not the server's fault, however, because it was clear that basic preparation had not been taken care of. For example, there was no salt/pepper on any of the tables.
There were no such problems during the dinner service. The difference was, as they say, "like night and day." The only problem with their dinner menu is the notable limitation of menu choices.
They comped us for the brunch, which was a nice gesture. So someone "backstage" must have been aware of whatever problems had been causing the delays. These problems are unknown to us. We speculated as to whether the server had simply forgotten to enter our order. At any rate, until they can get their act together, the brunch (at least on Saturdays) is not a positive feature of the Hotel Monaco experience.
Was looking for a restaurant in the area of Royal Farms Arena and we chose the B&O. We are glad because the food and service ( Caroline was our server) was outstanding. Home made pappardelle noodles and scallops were awesome. Nothing to not like about our dinner. Valet parked for dinner and the show, so conveniently located.
This is the kind of place where everything on the menu sounds good, but the serving sizes are tiny... The atmosphere is great, love the historic building and the amazing cocktails. But I'm not sure it's the most filling. The prices aren't bad for a nice date night, but keep in mind you'll probably need to add on an appetizer and/or dessert.
