Fine Dining Redefined

at the Ivy Hotel & Magdalena Restaurant


Magdalena, a fine-dining bistro, is both informal and thrilling, a culinary jewel of Baltimore. The cross-cultural menu is built upon the finest local ingredients, and changes with the seasons and the inspiration of the chef.

There are five different dining areas at Magdalena: the Garden Room, which looks out onto The Ivy’s walled Courtyard; the intimate, romantic Treasury - where sterling and crystal were once kept under lock and key, and where welcoming tables now stand under pools of lamplight; the vaulted, brick-floored Wine Cellar; Tasting Room; and the handsome, convivial Bar. And of course diners are welcome to enjoy drinks at the Bar before moving to their table.

Magdalena is open for dinner Tuesday through Saturday.  Reservations are suggested. You may reach us by telephone (410) 514-0303.

Tuesday-Thursday: 5:30 - 9:30 p.m.
Friday: 5:30 p.m. - 10:00 p.m.
Saturday: 5:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m.
