“Nice intimate dinner for two”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2013

If you haven't given it a try...you have to! Had been at their wine bar before but 1st time for dinner. We each enjoyed a "flight" of wine....The Local Sample and The Pinor Noir flight. Our server Rachel was a delight and very knowledgeable about the wines and the menu items.....and the best...she had a wonderful attitude and provided just the "right" amount of service. Our entrees were very savory and was the perfect way to end the weekend. Definitely will be back...soon.

“Fabulous Frederick Food experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2013

We celebrated our "wedding anniversary eve" with dinner here - still great and right up there with Ayse Meze and Tasting Room as the Frederick top three restaurants. Service was extraordinary and the food was a real taste treat. We started with bacon biscuits (my wife) and PEI oysters (me) - excellent. I had the halibut (yes, really fresh halibut and no high methyl mercury tilefish or other substitute) over black rice with shitake mushrooms and a miso glaze - awesome flavors! My wife had the filet mignon - a perfect medium rare, accompanied by delicious mashed potatoes (without the seemingly obligatory garlic flavoring that so many places seem to add). We shared a mousse cake for dessert - not just any dessert, this was sweet potato mousse with huckleberries on top - it was delicious and light. We shared a bottle of a very smooth chianti (without the "liver and fava beans..."). This dinner was an absolute delight!

“"Flight" me away”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

Interesting menu, love the flights of wine, consistently good. Service is knowledgeable about wines (and they have pretty good cocktails, too). We usually try an appetizer or two with a flight of wine each, then maybe order entrees. Despite this leisurely approach, the staff never makes us feel rushed. This is our favorite spot in summer on the patio overlooking the creek. Give it a try!

“Overall a good experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013

Had dinner at The Wine Kitchen last night for my sister-in-law's birthday. We originally had intended to take advantage of the restaurant week menu, but unfortunately none of the dishes in which we were interested we included, so we opted not to do that. We each ordered a wine flight, which was good, and the write-ups included in the flight, that describe the wine, are quite amusing. I had the scallops, which were very good, and the other two in our party had steaks, which were amazing. All in all, a very nice experience. Would be five stars except that the waiter was fairly unfriendly and seemed annoyed that he had to wait on us at all. Also, it took a while for us to get drinks when we first sat down. I will go back again, however (just hopefully will have a different server!).
