"I arrived in Baltimore late at almost 10:00 PM. The front desk at the Holiday Inn told me that Luna Del Sea was open late. Cold night in the Charm City (24 degrees) but the restaurant was open and very inviting to a traveler. Was graciously greeted by Kevin and Lindsay (bartender) and ordered a Makers Mark Manhattan. Lindsay makes a great Manhattan and put bitters in it as it should have! I ordered a Crab Cake appetizer and the Oyster Duo (2 Rockefeller and 2 stuffed with crab meat). Food was hot and perfect, probably the crabbiest crab cake I ever had! Oysters were fantastic. Music and interaction with the staff was awesome. I felt like I was at home! East Liberty Mike was there also (GO STEELERS !). I definitely will go back tomorrow for dinner! Anyone that complains about this restaurant is a TOOL and should eat at home !"
"I am born and raised in Baltimore. Land of the crab cake. This place...hands down. The best crab cakes around...it wasn't cheap...but the best never is... a nice place to treat yourself to...my girl is still talking about how good her ribeye and lobster tail dinner was."
"We happened upon this place on the last day of a conference. The ambiance is eclectic and the signed pictures on the wall were interesting. The prices seemed a little high, but not much higher than other places in the area. I got the crab dip and crab cakes. I absolutely loved them. The dip was thick and had giant lumps of crab. The crab cake was awesome!"
"Luna del Sea is by far one of my favorite places to indulge when downtown! The food is always fresh and cooked just right. The staff is friendly and hardworking, and the setting is very soothing and intimate for one on one time, but also good when you just wanna have a light lunch or a few drinks at the bar with some friends. Its also nice location. My family has done it a few times when we take a day trip around the harbor and camden yards, then end it off with dinner at Luna del Sea since it is right there within walking distance. I would definately reccommned it."
"It is always nice to stop by and try a place that you have walked by a million times. Baltimore has a lot of these restaurants...stand alone places that are on the way to the Convention Center, or the Arena, or the Orioles or the Ravens. On the occasion of the Ravens next to last preseason game, my wife and I took the occasion to avoid stadium food and to linger on Pratt Street. We found Luna Del Sea. Dinner time seems to be when this place starts to roll, so we ordered various appetizers as we were rushed for time. We left stuffed. The Wedge Salad and Stuffed Portobello Mushroom were delicious and tasty, and the crab dip was perfect. The beers were priced just right, and the pregame meal went off with timely service and nice conversation with the wait staff. All appeared to be seasoned vets of Baltimore dining and were helpful when ordering. Now that we have experienced a nice new find, we can plan to return and enjoy the seafood and pasta dishes that the place is known for, as we people watch on the sidewalk tables."
"In visiting Baltimore, I told myself I had to try some local flavor, and crab cakes seemed to be the best idea. Luna del Sea's crab cakes were so amazing, I'm not certain I can ever eat them anywhere else. (The ratatouille was quite excellent as well.) I felt the price was absolutely worth it. It's a nice little place, very convenient to the convention center, and with a lovely outdoor eating area great for cooler nights. I also had a little emergency related to my visit and the staff were both compassionate and understanding. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a fine dining experience and good seafood."

"Luna Del Sea Bistro is hands-down one of my favorite restaurants in Baltimore! The food there is fantastic. I recommend anything from the seafood list, but there are so many other menu options as well! The servers are the friendliest I've encountered in my years in Baltimore and the location is so convenient - right across from Camden Yards and so close to the inner harbor. Also, at night, Luna Del Sea is a really fun bar to visit - great music, indoor AND outdoor sections, awesome bartenders, and fun people to meet."
"My husband and I travel to Baltimore every year and always stop here for a quick bite at the bar. The service has always been pleasant. The food is great. Today we had the cream of crab soup and the appetizer crab cake. Both delightful. We enjoyed meeting the owner, Tony, who went out of his way to introduce himself and give us his business card for future visits."

"I was in Baltimore last week for a conference and this restaurant was not far from where I was staying. When in Baltimore you have to have a crab cake, so that's exactly what I decided to order. The first thing I noticed was the the amount of lump meat used to make the crab cake, and I was impressed! One of my biggest peeves about crab cakes are that no matter how much you spend wherever I go there is a least a few shells. It doesn't turn me off, but it prevents me from devouring it the way I would like to. Anyways that was not the case with this crab cake, not a single shell!!! It was delicious. I'd have to say this is by far one of the best crab cakes I've ever had. Next time I'm in town I won't hesitate to eat here again."
"Seriously they have the best crabcakes in town! They owner greeted us at the door and even had a conversation with us at the table, and not many do that anymore. They also offer a shuttle back and forth from your hotel. It makes it easy to have a nice meal when you dont know your way around."

"I have been going to Luna Del Sea for years. The food is consistently great. Their crabcakes are some of the best in Baltimore. All crabmeat, no fillers. They are awesome! I love the crab trio dishes and the service is always good. Tony treats us like family and we appreciate the extra mile they always go to make us feel at home. We live in Philadelphia, but have been know to drive down to Luna for a meal and then come back home. Kudos!"

"We went for lunch and were not going to get the crab cake because we were probably going to have that for dinner that night. The waitress suggested we try one as an appetizer because they don't use any filler; it's all crab. Wow, we're glad we tried it. Fantastic! I had the shrimp salad which was huge and awesome. My husband had a burger that was also very good. The staff was extremely friendly and attentive.
We were there for drinks the evening before and also found the wait staff and management to be exceptionally friendly.
Try it, you won't be disappointed!"

"I wanted to express my deepest appreciation to your server known as "Jay." I enjoyed a late lunch at your restaurant on 5/29/2013 and had one of my best dining experiences ever! Not only were the crab cakes out-of-this-world delicious, the salad was too. But, since the lunch rush had come and gone, the best part was the conversation I enjoyed with Jay. Please extend my gratitude to him. And, if at all possible, please let me know if it would be OK for me to send him a book in order to further express my appreciation. Given the conversation we had, I believe it's something he'd enjoy... Either way, I'll be sure to visit your restaurant the next time I'm in Baltimore! Thanks again.

"I only went once, but it was so good. We had oysters - which I don't usually eat but tried them and they were fresh, not fishy, perfect cool temp, served on ice and the server brought out habanero Tabasco sauce (so freakin good, flavorful and hot, I will buy it for at home use when I can find it) - not the green one, by the way - but these oysters were so good I had two (which is big for me) and they were delish!!!
"We also had the crab and shrimp (I think) omelette this was very yummy too! Perfectly cooked, perfectly seasoned. I would def get that again. And last but certainly not least, we ordered the stuffed mushrooms. They were stuffed with crab and they were SO damn good!!! Oh my goodness! They were creamy. And crabby! And yummy! Try them. Seriously. Ambiance was nice. Classy. Expensive looking. But then again it was expensive so I guess they matched up nicely. Service was an laid back then it seemed it would be. It wasn't as stuffy and hawty tawty as the outside had me assume. And for me, that's a good thing."

"We took the recommendation from the hotel for dinner. We were looking for great seafood for our final dinner in Baltimore. They picked us up for dinner at our hotel (Royal Sonesta) and took us back afterward which was a wonderful service. Dinner was wonderful! Seafood was fresh and VERY well prepared! The crab cakes were the BEST we had had during our week long trip. You should try it - you will NOT be disappointed!"
"Gentlemen my hat is off to you and I salute the best Crab Cake I have ever had and the quality remains the same on each and every return visit."James Underwood
