5 start restaurant. Exquisitely large menu and everything on the menu is fresh and well prepared. Best Lobster and fish dishes. Escargo, gralick shrimp and black bean soups. Freindly and super professional service. Everything perfect also for small banquets

We have been going to this restaurant for over fourty years and still have the same waiter. The food is fantastic and if you really want a treat ask for Oscar as your waiter. He makes one mean Spanish coffee.

This restaurant is a Baltimore institution. My husband and I last went there over 25 years ago and treasured the memory. Now facing the empty nest, we returned. It was disappointing in some ways. The service is impeccable-very old school white tablecloth. The food was...More

Great atmosphere, home made Sangaria and the Rockfish was outstanding. Romantic and charming. Located in downtown Baltimore near Peabody. Great service. I have nothing negative to say about this restaurant. I wish I lived closer!

Sorry, but I don't know. The chef, however, is very knowledgeable and friendly, and I suspect he can help you with your gluten questions.
