Cinghiale Ratings and Reviews
As always, our meal at Cinghiale was excellent. The menu was creative as ever but still very traditional Northern Italian. A great wine list at very reasonable prices . Impeccable service. The staff from the Manager Ingrid to the bussers are very friendly and always ready to please. We come here often and its well worth our 45 minute trip.
Everything was perfect from beginning to end. They have complementary valet. They had read my note and wished us a happy anniversary as soon as we arrived. The bread they bring out is homemade and delicious. Service is very attentive and great fine dining experience. We got the crab risotto and it was to die for how perfectly creamy it was. We each got duck and veal tenderloin and both were cooked to perfection. The suggested Italian wine was great with our entrees. They had an extensive wine list that was authentic. The dessert was decadent but delicious. We absolutely loved the lemon tart! For our anniversary they gave us complementary dessert wines with our two desserts. It was raining when we went out to get our car and the valet gave us an umbrella. I would definitely love to go back and would recommend to all for their amazing food. I can't wait to come back and try the homemade pastas!
Exquisite experience . We went during restaurant week and we're not disappointed. The food was good . I ordered a fish dish. The cod was good but blend . I would have liked an aioli sauce or pesto to go with it, but it was well presented. The interieur is elegant, the staff was sophisticated and discreet while watchful . I loved the white linen on the tables. It reminded me of famous French restaurants like Le Grand Vefour or l'Arpège. The wine list was long and impressive with all Italian wines from different regions. I know we will be back! This restaurant has nothing to envy from Top European restaurants. It plays on the same league! Buon apetito!
Superb attention to every detail from the moment we walked in the door. Service was impeccable. Highly recommend the wine pairings. They were delightful and perfectly selected to complement each freshly prepared al a carte dish. Both the duck and cod were exquisite in freshness and not overpowered with sauces or added flavors, but simply enhanced by herbs, broth and fruits. The risotto was the best I've had this side of Vienna. You'll want to leave room for the tangy sorbets. I recommend the one accompanied by a tableside splash of espresso on top. Extra kudos for asking if I preferred decaf. Thanks for a memorable evening waterside in Harbor East Baltimore.
Fabulous Dining experience. We all tried things we've never eaten before. The Foie Gras, Cinghalie Strip Loin and Duck Breast were favorites of the table. We were also very much in love with the Grilled Calamari. We will be back for many more meals with this outstanding team.
Overall we enjoyed this restaurant. The majority of the food was very good, however the Cod was not good. My girlfriend has allergies for dairy and eggs which made it harder then normal to find options, however the server was very accommodating and helpful.
If you are vegan this is not the restaurant for you!
The outdoor seating is very nice. Right on the water with great views. The servers and everybody working there were extraordinarily helpful.
I would absolutely recommend this restaurant for a business meal or date.
Went here for restaurant week. They had a great selection on the restaurant week menu and the portions were normal size (some restaurants give you smaller portions from their restaurant week menu) Service was great. We actually did the restaurant week menu and added another appetizer. We have added Cinghiale to our list of go to restaurants.
The saltimboca was delicious but it was heavy on the salt, sea salt I think. The kale was beautiful to look at but it was overly salted or peppered. It was hard to tell is was kale. The polenta was beautiful. I don't think that such beautiful ingredients need that much exterior flavoring.
I was slightly disappointed by the restaurant week menu choices. The food was good but I have eaten here before and there are much better choices on the menu that highlight what I liked when I visited before.
Service was excellent and the cocktails were excellent as well.
We have been to Cinghiale several times and have really liked it. This time (Rest. Wk) it was OK, but not nearly what we were used to. Expecting a crowd, we booked at 6:00. Nobody, absolutely nobody was in the restaurant. Our server was very nice, but "forgot" our wine pairings even after we asked and the MIC had to bring them (and did comp them -- a good move). Our pre-dinner drinks were served about 5 min. apart, so mine sat with ice melting until my spouse's arrived. The main courses (chicken saltimboca and skate) were almost inedible for the salt. My husband does not like to send things back, so he ate a few bites and then existed on salad and dessert. Speaking of dessert, one of the two offerings (which we were going to order) was unavailable ("the chef did not make enough"), but redemption was at hand - the MIC told us to order anything off the regular menu. We had a scrumptious chocolate dessert . Staff was very gracious (if absent minded). When we left, there still was nobody else there. The valet said he didn't have any change for a tip (we asked since we only had a twenty) and told us to go look for an ATM!I am so sad as I really had enjoyed Cinghiale, but I doubt we will go back soon. (And we drove from Annapolis!) Sigh.
Elegant and excellent restaurant in the Harbor East area of Baltimore. Very quiet on the night we went with excellent service and very extensive Italian wine list at relatively reasonable prices. The prix fixe dinner was also reasonable (a bit on the high side, but worth it based on the food and service) and was just the right amount of food. The food was excellent as well. Highly recommended
Disappointed by one of our favorite restaurants. Stopped by on a Beautiful evening on the patio for a light meal that dragged on for over two hours. Crab frisée salad, when it finally arrived, seemed undressed -- flavorless. Our server, though nice, disappeared for long stretches. So unusual for this place. What happened?
This business dinner was to welcome a couple that has decided on a Baltimore position from Seattle. It took one hour from our first course to our main. What? yep. They didn't even seem full. Pretty inexcusable. They comped a couple of glasses of wine to say sorry.
We liked these people we were meeting but we all did not want this long drawn out dinner.
This usually outstanding restaurant was a great disappoint at a recent Sunday brunch. both the service and the food were well below what we had come to expect from this restaurant. Sincerely hope this was just a particularly "bad day" and not the new norm for this restaurant.
