Blue Hill Tavern is a great neighborhood restaurant! Our waitress was friendly and professional. Even though she had a number of large groups, she was very attentive to our needs and served our meals at a comfortable pace. We enjoyed our calamari appetizers! Both the fried and sauteed were very tender. The salads and entrees were delicious, as well. Beef was perfectly done to each diner's liking. We can't wait to come back here again!

They were able to accommodate 9 of us on short notice, but initially had us sit under an A/C vent that was pushing out very cold air. We tried to tough it up but eventually asked to be moved, and they were nice enough to move us into a private room. The food was good, but not exceptional. There are a lot of options for you to choose, though, so it's good if you have a lot of people to please. Apps: fried pickles were good, but spicy, and the crab dip looked like it had a good bit of crab. Entrees: Brick oven pizza is passable if you don't like anything else, but seafood is the better option. Crispy calamari (salad) was lightly fried and very good. The salmon was cooked nicely and not overdone. I had the pork cheeks special, which although well cooked wasn't filling enough for me (and the reason I tried all the above from others). For dessert, the Candy Bar tasted like a Snickers bar and we all liked it, but the banana pudding. The ambiance inside is relatively upscale and would make for a good date night. I personally think there are better places in the area for particular food, but this place gives you a broad range of options and lots of space to host your bigger parties, with a nice deck and some patio seating for the nicer days.

Blue Hill Tavern is one of our favorite restaurants in Baltimore. From the cocktails to dessert (particularly the brioche bread pudding), this restaurant does not disappoint. The food is consistently extremely tasty and the service has always been good.

Great experience at Blue Hill Tavern for NYE. Plenty of options to choose from their holiday menu at a competitive price in town. Each course was delicious. If you’re looking for a nice crab cake meal I would recommend it! Filet was great too. Kelsey was our waitress and she was very friendly.

I have been here twice before and it was becoming my 'go to' place for special occasions. Unfortunately, not a good experience this time. Duck Empanadas were hard and dry and Rack of Lamb were overcooked and dry. The service was almost non existent. My girlfriend's bowl of ice cream looked almost like soup when it arrived.
Not sure I'm done with Blue Hill, but I will look elsewhere first.

We loved our server Judy! However, the food was lacking in portions and taste. Brussel sprouts were covered in sweet dressing, there were only 3 gnocchi in my mushroom gnocchi, and all of our steaks were well past medium.

Outstanding quality and preparation of creative (as well as comfort) foods. Sous vide-prepared veal with Brussels Sprouts was beyond belief. Best sprouts I can remember - most intense and flavorful preparation. Scallops on a salad were a surprise treat, and the outstanding service handled splitting that as an entree with aplomb.

We usually love Blue Hill Tavern... however, this visit, the food was awful. My steak was severally over cooked and the duck pizza was greasy. Not a great experience. Not sure if kitchen staff has changed. We may not be back for awhile.

We've always enjoyed our visits to BlueHill Tavern. Our server recommended the Calamari and Cauliflower and they were excellent. Unfortunately, all of the entrees were dry and overcooked. Lets hope the kitchen was having an off night.

We have enjoyed Blue Hill Tavern for years. The food and service is consistently good. This visit we were there on Thanksgiving. The food and the selection were way beyond the usual Thanksgiving menus and it was a fixed price. Our party of six enjoyed our different choices. Due to unavoidable traffic tie-ups, we called to say we would be late for our reservation. They were accommodating and we were the last party to leave the restaurant, but we were not rushed.

Disappointed in the food on Thanksgiving. The atmosphere was great, service was wonderful but the food was only ok. The turkey was heavily salted, the vegetables were hard, the mashed potatoes tasted like instant. It was very noisy. Not a quiet place for good conversation. We probably won't go again as the food needs improvement.

Jake was great! Very nice, professional. Just a mishap when processing the check where our card was swiped for another tables check. I’m sure it was an honest mistake, just not fond of having to wait a few days for a “pending” transaction of $213 to drop off our account.

Food was great as expected. We enjoyed our impromptu date night with the perfect scenery.

Waitress was great. However I have never felt so rushed. The bus person kept reaching over me to clear the table while I was still eating. I would never speak harshly to a server or buser but I was so aggravated, I snapped at her. We are just moving in to the neighborhood, 901 S Eaton and trying the local fare. Needless to say, I won’t be returning. Nice restaurant. Really too bad.
