Cinghiale Ratings and Reviews
We just had dinner there for our Anniversary. We have been to Charleston a few times and loved it so we wanted to try the other Cindy Wolf/Tony Foreman restaurant. The food was great, the service exceptional, and the wine list was one of the best we have ever seen. We will most definitely go back as soon as possible.
My absolute favorite in Baltimore
First class. Knowledgable wait staff
Sommelier present and fabulous
Ask for wine pairing with courses, they pick amazing ones you might not know exist . Broaden your pallet.
Charcuterie, fois gras, duck and lamb all freaking delicious and the service never wanting
Ty for a fab evening
I went to Cinghaile for my birthday and it was such a great experience. The staff was incredibly kind and welcoming. I opted for the 4 course menu with wine pairings and my fantastic waitress helped me choose from the many amazing-sounding options on the menu. I loved everything about my experience and hope to make this a new birthday tradition!
I was there to surprise my boyfriend with a one year anniversary dinner date. Every course was wonderful, even when it was something I would not normally order or try. I love Italian food and this place was perfect. And server was very knowledgeable of drink and food menu! Very helpful! We will be back.
We dined to celebrate my birthday and the meal was outstanding. The charcuterie was superior, the calamari is such a unique preparation that I must have each time we are there, and the pastas, chitarra with shrimp and gnocchi with ragu, were just plain out of this world. I was honored with a candle in our dessert and made to feel welcome. It was a splendid evening all around.
Amazing date night on the patio. We went with our dogs, and they must love fine dining because they were perfectly behaved.
The date night menu was perfect for us, and we enjoyed two $25 wine selections. Our server was kind and knowledgeable.
Overall a true win.
These days I am a fan of almost any fine restaurant that's designed to allow conversation without a raised voice. Cinghiale fills that bill with high ceilings and upscale accoutrements. Our waiter was very professional and really looked the part without being stiff or condescending. The bread, usually the first clue to the quality of the meal to follow, was warm and of several varieties to please varying palates. The frito misto appetizer competed successfully with the version I enjoyed some years ago in Ventimiglia. The saltimbocca was beautifully plated, moist and tender, the chicken not overwhelmed with too much prosciutto. I thought the place was reasonably priced.
We went to Cinghiale for the 1st time for my wife's birthday on a Saturday night. She is a foodie and Cinghiale has been on her list of restaurants to try. The night was wonderful. Everything was great. The service, the food, the wine.....it was a great night.
Cinghiale is my favorite restaurant in Baltimore, and my favorite of Cindy Wolf/Tony Foreman's holdings. The view of the water and the location in Harbor East are gorgeous, the decor is upscale yet casual luxury and the service is outstanding. We were on our way to see Wynton Marsalis at the Meyerhoff and the staff accommodated our short 1 1/2 hour dining time frame. I have been to Cinghiale with small groups, for professional dinners, and for couples' dining and have never been disappointed.
15 year anniversary. Not sure the point of putting down special occasions or anniversaries if nothing is really done. Me my wife and son all ordered dessert. Even if you didn't want to comp anything you should at least paint a plate in chocolate or something saying Happy Anniversary to at least acknowledge it otherwise there really isn't any point in asking your guest why they are dining with you beyond, food, service and ambiance.
This is my favorite place in Baltimore. Superb meals every time I come. Love the soft shell crabs. Wonderful ambiance and relaxing setting. A gem of a place in Baltimore! Great for special dinners or celebrations or dates or dinner meetings. Guests will be impressed.
We went here for my fiancée birthday. The food, wine and experience were all top-notch. We both had the four-course dinner with wine pairings, which all ended up being great choices. Our waiter took the time to write down all of the wines we had that evening and showed us the liquor store that they use for the restaurant so that we could buy them ourselves in the future. They even brought us a special dessert wine on the house in honor of my fiance's birthday at the end of the evening. Highly recommended for special occasions like anniversaries, birthdays, romantic dinners, etc.
We have been here several times! I love Italian and think Cindy wolf is a great chef but the pasta is always over salted! We got the date night meal which is a steal at 50 usd per couple which includes antipasti, 2 pasta plates, and cookies for dessert. However, when the pastas are so salty you can't eat it, it makes it hard to return to the restaurant. I had to beg my husband to come here and give it another chance and then I had to beg him to not return the pasta (I feel bad for wasting food and costing them money). I want these restaurants to succeed because I live nearby but I'm not sure if I'll be back again. After our third experience with it being so salty, I'm sad that we probably won't return unless I'm not with my husband.
Although it was the best prosciutto I've ever had in my entire foodie life, the overall experience was disappointing. The service was slow some of our food arrived cold and most was under seasoned. The service team apologized several times for delays.
We were underwhelmed.
