Dined at The Wine Kitchen on a spring Saturday evening. We're from Philadelphia and picked this restaurant based on tripadvisor reviews. It was a good choice. Warm greeting from the hostess and while there was no room at the bar for a pre-dinner cocktail, we were seated quickly and before our scheduled reservation. The staff on the whole was friendly, well-informed and not at all pretentious. The menu is nicely varied and fairly priced. Prices for wine by the bottle were surprisingly reasonable. Our meals were both outstanding. Flavorful and pleasingly presented. When in Frederick, we'd highly recommend The Wine Kitchen.
