My husband and I went to The Tasting Room to celebrate our 47th anniversary. It was early in the week but it seemed to be rather full. It is a small restaurant on a busy intersection in downtown Frederick MD. The people watching was fabulous! However, the noise level was horrible and my husband had a difficult time hearing when we conversed. Our appetizer of the fois gras was fantastic, our salads were very good, but the entrees (we both had fish) were just okay, nothing special. Our waiter was very nice and polite which we both appreciated. It had been a couple of years since the last time we were there and I think it will be a couple more unless they do something for noise abatement.
