My husband and I had dinner there last night as our Anniversary dinner as we do every year. Amazing!! We ordered champagne to start and when after it was poured the server immediately got a fresh bottle stating there weren't enough bubbles. We hadn't even...More

Seating was too close where you could easily hear adjacent conversation. Frequent interruptions by server staff not paying attention as to when to interrupt conversation. Shouldn't have to ask three times for coffee. Food selection and flavor and presentation was great but pretentiously overpriced.

We ate at Charleston this last weekend while visiting Baltimore. It is conveniently located within walking distance of the Inner Harbor. Our son booked the reservation, and I didn't know what to expect. It was exceptional on nearly every measure. The restaurant is divided into...More

Best meal I think I have ever had. Definitely a special occasion place. Very expensive but worth it for a birthday or anniversary.

Local food, local restaurant, and not a "trendy place". You want top quality - this is as close as Baltimore has gotten to 5 stars in food/service/drinks/experience. I've been many times and never failed to leave completely satisfied. Food may not always be to everyone's...More

The difference between true five-star restaurants and all the rest is they always rise to the occasion. And Charleston did exactly that on our recent visit. We arrived quite early for our 9:00 pm reservation after a long day at the Preakness and were quite...More

Found the cost ridiculous, almost embarrassing ... spend about $300.00 for a mall for 2. Everything was excellent, although portions were small. Presentation was lovely. Have been to other restaurants with nicer ambiance. Certainly with going once.

The answers are all generally correct. Depending on the weather, your energy level, comfy shoes, and a good concierge, a walk using some elevated walkways is just a bit over a mile (23 minutes estimated). There is a ferry... More

Can a single dinner be accommodated for the tasting menu at the bar or in the restaurant since reservations not allowed on open table for one?

You can get the full dinner at the bar. We usually sit at the bar and get drinks and their unbelievable lobster bisque.
