romantic dinner in Baltimore

sidesjf Apr 1, 2013 11:11 AM

My husband and I are going to the Everyman theater for a matinee performance on Saturday. I want to go to dinner afterwards, somehwere with great food and a romantic atmosphere where we can talk. I have a reservation at Cinghiale which I hear is great, but not necessarily worth the price. We like all types of food. I have also been thinking about the Market, the corner byob, and fork and wrench. I know these are all trendy and I don't necessarily need that. Am I overlooking some great places?

    Cinghiale is great and worth the price, IMHO. Sit on the osteria side, ask for a banquette with a view of the water and enjoy. Even if you disagree, you will have a beautiful romantic dinner.

      We were psyched up for Cinghiale for my birthday last August. Wanted to go to Charleston but it was a Sunday. Some parts were quite lovely but I wasn't blown away. I don't know if I would bill it as romantic by any means however.

        I am sticking with Cingular. Thanks for the advice about where to sit.

          Woodberry's Kitchen was great.

            What about the Olive Room? Delicious yet reasonably priced greek food, and lovely atmosphere. I also love Mezze, which is also so delicious and affordable (but ask to be in the main upstairs dining room, which has the atmosphere you're looking for). Have fun!!!

              Is the Olive Room still open? The hotel that housed it was recently in foreclosure.

              I would stick with the Cinghale idea - I love it. We've found it can be a great value considering the quality.

                Cinghiale was great. I had the best mushroom soup of my life, fried sand eels with homemade mayonnaise, and excellent tortellini. And after all of that I was too full for an entree so I got another app of fish with citrus.
