“Don't Miss This Restaurant!!!!!!!!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

Even before you place your order for dinner, you have the wonderful opportunity to select a flight of wines to accompany it...............oh, yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!! Just the way to start a great evening at this restaurant.... and I guarantee that you WILL have just that!

The meals are wonderful & well-priced, as are the flights of wines. More offerings of wine flights than we have ever seen in one restaurant!

For our meals, we selected a 24 Hour-Glazed Beef Short Rib, a Grilled Swordfish, a Long Island Duck with Huckleberries (Yes, when was the last time that you saw huckleberries anywhere on the menu???), and a Petite Filet Mignon w/ Pistachio Foie Gras Butter--------to die for!!!! All members of our party were extremely happy with their meals.

Kudos to Laura, our server. She was very helpful when needed and disappeared when not. We were also lucky to have John, one of the two managers of The Wine Kitchen, stop by our table.

One bit of a down note..........because of the hardwood flooring and open areas, this is not a quiet restaurant. Noise could affect your experience here, but my advice would be to try to go beyond it. If you do, I am sure that you will have a VERY enjoyable experience.

“8 thumbs up!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

Four of us had dinner here on a recent visit to Frederick, and we all left happy! The contemporary but casual atmosphere, with views to the kitchen area, adds to the happy vibe here. The waitress was really friendly and gave us just the right amount of attention. We each chose a different wine flight to go with our meals - swordfish, duck with lingonberrries, a filet mignon and a beef short rib. Everyone declared their entrees delicious! Three of us had perfectly prepared fresh green beans as our veggie. I like the fact that the beef is locally raised and hormone-free.
Prices are not bad for the high quality and the quantity of the excellent food and wine. If we get back to Frederick, we'll return here for sure.

“Always fun to go”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

This is always a great bet when in Frederick - whether for lunch or dinner. Service is friendly and informative. Last time we were there, it was for lunch at 4pm! This did not faze our waiter, who was perfectly charming about a group of giggly friends have a light meal in teh middle of the afternoon. Everybody at our table had the Tuna Tartare - soyummy!

“Very Pleasant Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

We enjoyed "finding" this restaurant in Frederick. It is actually on a Creek and can imagine that it would be a very pleasant dining experience in the spring/summer as well. We enjoyed a glass of wine before dinner. Although mine was quite enjoyable, it did leave a good amount of sediment in the glass and on the finish, which was disappointing. We were told that is normal for Spanish blend wines. As a result, I selected another wine for dinner. I had the NY strip which was prepared perfectly as requested. The table has a choice a three salts; however, the steak was seasoned properly and it did not need any additional salt. My husband wanted their hamburger which looked quite tasty as they passed us by; however, they sold out of hamburgers at 8 p.m., which was a disappointment. He selected the short rib and enjoyed. The wait staff are most pleasant and the owner was very attentive. He packaged my left over steak in a first class way, which reminds us that patrons remember the "little things" which make up the dining experience. We will definitely return for another experience of the casual but classy environment, good service and food.
