We dined at 208 Talbot recently and the meal was exceptional. The service was very very good. We could not decide on a starter, so we just ordered 5 or 6 and made that our dinner. Good choices include the calamari and the spring roll.

We were staying 30 minutes away in Cambridge, MD, but decided to swing over to St. Michael's to experience its offerings. We went to 208 Talbot on a recommendation from friends who recently went there.

The restaurant is in a beautiful old building. Great wine list and knowledgeable service staff. We got the ahi tuna served on crab fried rice with snow peas. So delicious. The crab fried rice and the soy reduction made this a standout dish. The peach studded bread pudding was amazing as well.

If you're anywhere in the vicinity, be sure to drop in!

I really don't need to write a review for this establishment. I will agree with everyone else and just simply say, "Perfect"! Absolutely Perfect!

This restaurant was everything the other reviewers said. It deserves to be number one. The food was great, the service excellent. We shared the spring rolls which were amazing. They were very cooperative about changing a side dish and the Scottish salmon was delicious. I had Yukon gold mashed potatoes instead of the grits. They were great. My husband had soft shell crabs. He loved them. The server recommended the bread pudding. It was superb.

If you have to choose one fine dining restaurant in St. Michaels, 208 Talbot should be it. We live locally and this is our favorite restaurant in town. Meals are always beautifully prepared and delicious. The wait staff is well trained and professional - they add to the dining experience. Last time we were there I started with the watermelon, feta salad - it came with a bed of fresh greens with just a touch of mint - and that took the dish from good to exceptional. I followed it with the salmon - perfectly cooked with yummy complementary sides. My husband had the crab spring rolls (his favorite) followed by a beautiful tuna entree. The only negative is that the back room tables are a bit close together, so if you can, ask to be seated in the main room. Try it once and I guarantee you will want to return.
