Anyone eaten at Robert Oliver Seafood across from the Meyerhoff recently?
My parents and I have series tickets to the BSO and like to have dinner afterwards. For years we were regular customers of Spike & Charlies, and then La Tesso Tano. Were never happy with the various places that succeeded Spike & Charlie's; and Abacrombie wasn't open late enough (i.e, after the concert).
So we're interested in trying Robert Oliver Seafood, but I would like to hear opinions first. Thanks very much.
I ate there when it first opened a couple of times, and enjoyed the food and the atmosphere; it's been more than 6months, so I honestly can't remember what we ate but there was a group of about 8 and everyone was happy with their meal and the service. Unfortunately, since then the opening Executive Chef left, as did some of the management team, and i've not had a chance to get back since. I'm not even sure who's running their kitchen now? Anyone know?
They closed in August 08 & just reopened last weekend (I know this post is 10 months later than this thread, sorry) ....there's a brand new menu & Chef (Josh Hill from Tabrizi's, Night of the Cookers, etc) & the grand re-opening is in October, but I recommend stopping by during the week b/c it gets a bit hectic on concert nights. If you go before or after a show, make a reservation and definitely let your server know in advance that you have a time limit! :)
We ate there earlier this year, and I remember it being pleasant - nothing bad, nothing special.
Looking at menu...
I remember having the tuna tartar: so-so.
The salad with the fig vinaigrette was good.
She had the crabcake, and liked it.
I had the salmon and it was fine.
We enjoyed the concert more than the meal, but we'd definitely go back.
