I visit The Tasting Room fairly frequently. This past visit was for a friend's birthday and they nailed it again. (I had literally just been there the night before.) The food is always good, drinks are delicious and service matches. I know that if I need a night out with great food, I can count on Tasting Room.

While other chefs may get more attention Frederick' own Michael Tauraso has earned his stripes with consistent and creative food. He basically founded the finer dining scene in Frederick and for over 10 years he has set the bar for consistently good food, good wine and great service. It is a cool place to see and be seen. The menu... More

The Tasting Room has some if the most delicious food I have ever eaten. The filet mignon is the finest I have had and my family agrees, much better than the high-end chains in the big cities. All of the other food we've eaten there is incredibly good. The lobster mashed potatoes are amazing but filling. The menu changes frequently,... More

Went here for a romantic night out. I had the steak which was ordered as medium but came out well done. The food was over priced for the quality. Go to Volt.

Eaten here many tmes, particularly for lunch. Great food, terrific service every time. Notables: lobster bisque is fantastic but rich! Nice chunks of lobster on top. Steak salad is fantastic. Best I've had. Grilled salmon, shrimp and grits, filet, and local beef cheeseburger all terrific.

Without a doubt, the Filet at The Tasting Room is one of if not the best I have had. The quality of the meal and presentation is top notch and never fails to please. Though a bit noisy, it seems to disappear as one settles in and is distracted by the great service and top notch preparation, and presentation of... More

As a life long resident of this area, one thing you can count on the The Tasting Room. The food is top quality as is the service. You can't go wrong with the filet, crab cakes, and the ever changing daily specials. Come early for drinks. The bartenders are great.

We lunch in Frederick quite often and felt we like we were getting in a rut always choosing the same two restaurants, so we went to the Tasting Room for the first time. On the corner with its big windows, TR is great for people watching but that is not all. They had a selection of mixed drinks that were... More

Although not an expansive selection on the menu, everything on the menu is done to perfection! Lovely wines and drink selection. The only drawback is the loud acoustics on a busy night.

Lunch here today with friends, very nice room (a touch noisy), delicious menu. Two of us had the 3 course lunch for $18 and it was terrific. I thought it would be small plates but the portions were hearty and the calimari was tender and crispy. The chopped chicken salad was very lightly dressed which is a nice change from... More
