Cafe Mezzanotte in Severna Park The atmosphere is elegant, the service is excellent, the owners are charming and the food is wonderful. I had one of my best birthday meals there. I plan to go back every year, along with many other times during the year! I recommend the fried calamari to start.

Hunan L'Rose in Odenton ~ The food is always perfect! The service is outstanding and the Owners visit every table every time to make sure that your experience is the best. We have gone there for just about every special occasion for years and Catarina the owner, has always offered to take our photo after the meal. We have years worth of family photos at Hunan L Rose. It's fun to see the progression over the years! I highly recommend the Hunan L Rose to everyone I meet!

My special occasion restaurant is The Sunset Restaurant in Glen Burnie, for it's great food, huge menu selections, service and atmosphere. Reminds me of Haussner's in Baltimore that closed several years ago. Definitely a Special Occasion place.

My favorite is Broadneck Grill here in Arnold. I also love the wine/dinners which they have once a month. You have to make reservations month ahead. Marion Keane

You will not find a better crab imperial, and anything with the imperial topping, than at the Sunset restaurant in Glen Burnie. The prime rib and cream of crab soup are also standouts. The service is top notch.

We always go to the Chart House in Annapolis for our anniversary. It's where my husband proposed to me. The menu has changed over the past 18 years, but the food is still awesome, the view is exceptional, and the chocolate souffle is a MUST.
