Nice decor, solid menu, quality food. A great place for a business or personal breakfast. I was staying at the hotel so it was super convenient but those that met me, found it easy to meet as well.

Horribly slow service and food, but a decent value for the lunch special, which offered a Baltimore classic, pit beef. I would also not recommend this restaurant for groups because I think this could be what slows them down. I went with a group of 8 and our lunch ended up taking 2 hours, and not because the group took... More

I have dined at the B&O American Brasserie a few times now. Not to say that this place is still not fantastic for the area, but unfortunately the more times I have gone the less appealing this place becomes. Let me explain, when you travel for work almost every week you eat out for every meal. After knowing the names... More

My husband and I dined here and enjoyed it. The restaurant is a lovely space, with a lively bar scene on the lower level and a quieter dining room on the mezzanine. As I was not very hungry, I had their crab salad, which was very good, with lots of crabmeat and a good dressing--just the right amount. My husband... More

An experience like no other... I think they need to work out some serious kinks. We were guests at The Kimpton, and have been contacted by management regarding our most unusual visits, both at lunch and breakfast. Recommend reading most recent reviews before choosing to dine at B&O.

Had a nice dinner here last evening. Seated right away. Host was very nice and the server super attentive. Menu, though brief, was very good. Mushroom Flatbread was an excellent choice for an appetizer - portion was perfect for four people and it was absolutely delicious. Food was consistent with a good american brasserie.

My wife and I ate dinner here on September 11, 2016. Excellent service and food. Our server, Analena, was lovely, friendly, and attentive. My wife and I shared the artisan cheese board and the steak frites, and the Manhattan torte. Her Queen Bee and my Cardamom Daiquiri cocktails were delicious. Eat and drink here.

Description
When you inherit a space as magical as the historic former Baltimore & Ohio Railroad headquarters, you've got to do it justice. We kept our building's most stunning architectural features intact while updating the space with contemporary design elements and nostalgic touches, like chairs and table lamps from original B&O dining cars. Our practices are distinctly 21st century, though, from selecting the best local produce at the farmer's market to serving cutting-edge craft cocktails to maintaining a steadfast commitment to sustainable business practices. If only train passengers from the early 1900s had it so good!
