The only thing is there is not enough seating/leg space for very tall people lie my husband, who is 6'6". Although we love dining here, it is a bit uncomfortable for him.

Although the atmosphere and food was good, it was not great. Many of the items listed for appertizers were very heavy and could have served as entrees. I had the blackened tilapia and it was tasty, but seasonings added at the end made it a little too salty, and the fish looked like the frozen filets you can purchase at Sam's Club. On the business side, I did not like the reservations only. Since I could not get a reservation for the weekend I wanted, I expected a full house. I think it hurts not to have some flexibility so that if you have no shows, you can still have a full house with the potential for walk ins.

The restaurant is cozy and clean. An unexpected surprise on Greenmount Ave. Reservations only help make you feel safe.

I always enjoy the environment and the meal each time I visit here. The service was very different this time than any other because my guest and I went quite a while without being checked on for refills on our water or tea. This was the first time though because I've been there at least 10 times.

From Our Editors

When 18-year old Casey Jenkins enrolled in the US Marine Corp, his only intention was to serve his country. After spending time as a line cook, however, he began a love affair with the culinary arts. When service ended, he took his skills to the next level by enrolling in the Culinary Institute of America. Over time, he honed his skills and eventually opened Darker Than Blue Cafe, known throughout Baltimore for its pairing of live jazz performances with low-country southern cuisine made from fresh, local ingredients.

The restaurant has garnered praise, voted Baltimore’s Best Soul Food by Voice Places. Diners sip peach-mango tea during all-you-can-eat Sunday jazz brunch, when live music fills the restaurant for a more melodious backdrop than a recording of Harvey Fierstein reading The Grapes of Wrath. They can also bring their own libations to enjoy with dinner, which features classics such as chicken and waffles topped with whipped cream, Cajun shrimp served over salmon cakes, and baby-back ribs.
