    Two of us went here for a casual dinner on a Wednesday evening. We both had appetizers (Grilled Octopus and Mussels) and entrees (Lamb Shank and one of the white fishes). Overall the food was just ok. The broth for the mussels did not have a good taste/smell. This broth is fairly easy to make, thus I am surprised at how bad it was. The grilled octopus wasn't anything special. The entrees were better, but also nothing to rave about. We had cocktails throughout the night. They were hit and miss. One of them (their version of an Old Fashioned) was so bad (it has a VERY strong cinnamon taste) that I had to send it back. I wasn't impressed. The desert menu wasn't very appealing so we decided to forego desert. Throughout the night, much in the same manner as the food, the service was just ok. The server did not go out of her way to recommend any dishes and she did not do a very good job of introducing/explaining what each dish we asked about entailed. It almost felt like a diner where she simply showed up and was like, "what will you have hon?". I would give the experience a 2.5 stars out of 5 and not recommend this place to others as there are many other better dining options in Baltimore.

    I went past Ouzo Bay on a trip to Baltimore before and it’s ambiance intrigued me from the outside. The next time I came to Baltimore, I made a point of trying it. I was on a trip to celebrate my birthday was looking forward to trying a new restaurant in a city that I have grown up visiting. From the start, the manager was very welcoming and presented me with a birthday card on behalf of the staff. I was also given my seating preference from the reservation. This restaurant has a lovely ambiance with modern fixtures and lively but controlled music. The menu here is very expansive and mixes Mediterranean classics with some unique dishes. This began as early as the complementary bread that was served. My favorite dishes were the chargrilled calamari, the goat cheese spread with dates, and the flaming saganaki cheese, which is set on fire table side. Throughout the whole experience, my sever, Chicas, the server assistants, and the manager were all very attentive, even more so than staff at restaurants more upscale than this one. They came over repeatedly to check on how everything was, which was much appreciated. Overall, as someone who appreciates restaurants, quality food and service, as well as someone who works in the industry myself, I would highly recommend Ouzo Bay if you are visiting the city or have not tried it yet. I will definitely be back in the future!

    Food is always great, and atmosphere is energetic. Prices were on the high side, but not unexpected. What was a surprise was how slow the service was the entire night, from the delay in getting water and menus, to taking our order, to getting our entrees. Perhaps a staffing issue for the night, but entertaining friends from out of town, it was a bit embarrassing.

    My friend and I had an amazing catch up dinner date. The food was great, but could of had a bit more seasoning. I ordered the red snapper and it likes the robust seasoning aside from the capers that were drizzled on top. My friend is a frequent visitor, I was new and neither of us found the outdoor smoking whiffing through the restaurant periodically to be pleasant. We preferred outdoors but they accommodated us indoors with social distance seating. The atmosphere was amazing and we sat next to the live booth and loved jamming to the music!

    We’ve been here before we were really shocked by the prices I know inflation is real but this was ridiculous. My companions enjoyed their meals but I had a lamb shank that was so full of cayenne pepper I could hardly eat it. I didn’t think Greek food was known for this kind of spice it was over the top or a mistake

    Last night had all the elements of a perfect dinner. Waterfront location. Impeccable restaurant. Idyllic temps. It's great that Ouzo Bay survived the pandemic. They're not 100 percent back yet. The bar emptied out. Tables were set for lunch. A party of eight bet on who could come closest to their total tab. The sun set. The air chilled. All of this happened in the inordinate amount of time it took to receive roast snapper with a side of asparagus. Luckily I ordered mussels for a first course. I left nearly two hours after I arrived. It's great that in person meetings are back with massive tables. Good for the restaurant. Good for tips. Not so good for trying to have a nice dinner on a work night.

    Everything was great. The only weird part was that they told my friend they would comp her dessert since it was her birthday. So when they came and asked for dessert she ordered the Galaktoboureko. Well they brought what she ordered (which was DELICIOUS!) as well as a brownie/ice cream with a candle, then when we got the bill they charged us for the dessert she ordered and $5 for the birthday brownie. We laughed about it but the communication was poor so if you’re going for a birthday just double check first as we only wanted one dessert not two. Also, we stopped by the Ouzo Beach bar afterwards and it was a great spot to have a final drink!

    My first time visiting the restaurant I was very excited for the experience. Don't waste your time food is alright but service is terrible. The server was very inattentive, the restaurant was not very busy. She didn't greet our table for about 15-20minutes then waited an additional 30-40 minutes to get our first drink and put in our food order. Food was okay for the most part, the bronzino was overly fishy and tasted off. Not pleased I was hoping to have a better experience.

    Our server tried his best - but the drinks and dinner were below average. This restaurant used to be very dependable - always a great cocktail and meal. Not anymore. The vibe was also lack luster and the noise from the street and smell of marijuana was off putting. Will head to Columbia to Xenia next time. Too bad.

    We enjoyed a delicious dinner at Ouzo Bay. The open-air design of the restaurant was perfect on a warm summer evening, with a light breeze coming off the water. Highly recommend a selection from the Fish Market. Simply grilled, with just the right touch of seasoning/herbs, the Red Snapper was wonderful. Service was excellent and our server, Anna, was terrific.

    The restaurant had nice menu options but I expected more from the food. The food was substandard for a high end restaurant. We had the lamb shank, red snapper, roasted veggies and potatoes. The Potatoes were prepared like fast food wedge potatoes, the red snapper presentation and preparation was both disappointing. The lamb shank was prepared in advance (came out in about 10 minutes), very tender, but lacked in taste and presentation. Over all I would not recommend this restaurant, their food need to improve.

    Great seafood restaurant with Greek specialties. We had the Saganaki hot cheese appetizer, swordfish and dover sole mains, and a Greek dessert (philo dough with cream cheese). Everything was terrific with huge fish portions. We drink a lot of wine but didn’t know Greek wines, so asked them to recommend a white and a bottle of red. Both were very good. Excellent service; all in all a great dining experience.

    Noel, our waitress was great. Cocktails, excellent. The hostess had a very nasty attitude when I wanted to sit by the window, and management was there to witness it. The food was OK, ask for less salt if you order any of the fish dishes. I would go back knowing what to order.

    Food is outstanding but they were out of two of our primary choices. Service wasn’t what I would expect of a restaurant this caliber and it was a slow night. Manager seemed to be useless and not engaged at all. Hopefully just a bad night, too good of a restaurant to have that continue.
