It took us 3 attempts to get into the CD Cafe, due to it's popularity it gets very busy and unfortunately they don't do bookings(!), and it is a small place with only about 8 tables but we were very glad we persevered as the food was excellent. As with most restaurants around this areas seafood is the prime menu... More

Loved it for a special dinner out but after so many years it's about the same type of food. It seems like they put a lot of spices things on the menu and for me it's not something I can eat anymore. So, maybe if you feel like an intimate dinner and enjoy a kick in the food with a... More

Very cute little place, split in two. Small dining room with smaller bar in front. Walk down the hallway and come to the second half, the Lounge. Smaller dining room, bigger (slightly) bar. Menu is the same both places. Food and service are both very, very good. Try the Tenderloin Neopolitan appetizer. Nice wine by the glass selection. Prices are... More

Limited seating in this restaurant. Went for dinner on a Monday so not very busy - I think Friday and Saturday would be a long wait for a table. Spouse had tenderloin steak au poivre with a crab cake, asparagus, and garlic mashed potatoes. The sauce over the steak was great. Very pleased with his meal. I wanted something light... More

The dining room was full so the hostess suggested we go to the bar area.....next door to the main restaurant. It was not just a bar, it was a less formal version of main dining room with large tables and the same seasonal menu. Perfect for us. We ordered the Savory Cheesecake..yummy. Not sweet, unique. The two specials we ordered... More

We had a wonderful anniversary dinner here! The food and service is top notch. Very small dining room and they don't take reservations, so going early is recommended if you don't want to wait. They do have a nice lounge for pre-dinner drinks if you don't mind waiting.

I go to Solomons every year but had just never made my way into this restaurant until this October. Many of the other local restaurants are closing for various reasons so I decided I had better find a new place to enjoy. The main dining room was still full and a bit noisy when we got there but one of... More
