My Fiance and I had dinner at Jack's Bistro in the Canton section of Baltimore this Saturday night. I had read many positive things here about them and the Baltimore Sun article made it sound like an interesting place, so we decided to give it a try. The decor was really hip and cute. Everything looked very clean, neat and well thought out. The lighting was slightly dim for atmosphere, the walls were freshly painted pretty colors and the pictures were all tasteful. The bathrooms were even neat, clean and tastefully decorated. The dining room was a little loud, but I think it might have been that the people on the other side of the dining room were very loud. The lamp shades in the other room at the booths were very cute. Our Waitress was wonderful. She never left things on the table that we did not want and was one of those Waitresses who does not make you feel intimidated and she was always there when you needed her. She did a very good job explaining things and making recomendations. I understand that she worked with the Chef previously at Red Fish. It says something for the Chef/Owner that he can keep someone of this high caliber. Other staff members were very friendly and helpful as well. We shared an appetizer - avocados with crab meat from the Caribbean menu. It was pretty good. I ordered salmon as my entree and had them cook it well done. It was good and the mashed potatoes were excellent. My Fiance had a wonderful cut of steak in, what I think was a wine or Jack Daniels sauce. The steak was wonderful because you could cut it pretty easily with a butter knife. We did not order wine - we just weren't in the mood - we just drank soda. We shared smores for desert - my Fiance thought they were "just ok" and I thought they were one of the best things I had ever eaten in my life. I had one of those fancy, "drink" coffees which unfortunately wasn't hot enough but was good. The bill was around $70. All in all it was a good experience.
