Food was delicious, staff was attentive.
The Covid precautions were well done. Masks were required when you move through the restaurant or when interacting with the staff; table distancing was six feet apart or more and sanitization processes were evident.
We felt comfortable and safe in the environment.

First visit back after COVID shutdown. Oysters were awesome. Our salmon came out luke warm and undercooked. Brought back to the table without apology. Tables for two were in back of restaurant with the explanation that the window tables were “reserved for groups of four or more”. It was a quiet Tuesday evening and more than half the widow tables remained empty while we were there. Left disappointed. Hoping things turn around as it one of our favorites.

Firestone's was okay. Portion sizes were quite small/modest. Not so sure about value for the money at Firestone's. But, I appreciated an opportunity to be out and about. :)

We had an excellent meal here. There were ample gluten-free options (essential for me) and even a few gluten-free desserts. The server and bartender were able to answer our questions about possible cross-contamination. Most importantly, though, the food was great.

We really enjoyed over looking downtown Frederick while we ate. We had grilled salmon as one of the choices for restaurant week. The food was delicious and reasonably priced for the portion sizes during restaurant week. Service was friendly and efficient. Would definitely recommend to everyone looking for a date night dinner.

Enjoyed the lobster/shrimp roll but didn’t think the roll was anything special
The side salad was just onion and lettuce- could use some color and maybe dressing on the side
We had a great table

My husband and I dined here for our anniversary and the food and the service was exceptional. It wasn’t as romantic as I had imagined it to be, but the dinner and sitting in the upper floor window was in itself was a quaint little surprise. We will definitely be coming back here, our experience was impeccable.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in downtown Frederick. It always has amazing food and service. Dinner during restaurant week was great. Only 4 out of 5 for food because they under seasoned the meat. Adding salt after just doesn’t taste the same as when properly seasoned while cooking. Soup was a bland as well. Still my favorite place, and will continue to go for meals.

My wife and I had a top notch experience at this restaurant. The food was excellent. Our filets were both cooked to our requested temperatures. The presentation was exquisite. Service was also top drawer. There were several helpers who were attentive to refilling water glasses, removing empty plates, and handling our every request. We highly recommend this restaurant for a fine dining experience.

There was one small negative to this restaurant. When it gets busy and the bar area fills up, it can get fairly loud. However, because we ate upstairs, it did not negatively affect our particular dining experience. If noise bothers you, ask to be seated upstairs for dining during the busy times.

Seated on the upper level at a very nice table , service was professionally attentive without being intrusive . The food stole the show started with oysters that were some of best I ever had followed by a Lamb shank that was fall off the bone tender and the steaks were cooked as ordered. .

Our meal was fantastic! The food was thoughtful/creative and well balanced in flavors.
Besides excellent food, they had some nice touches such as a complimentary bisque to start, and the palate cleanser between the appetizers and the main course.
The ambiance is relaxing, warm, and inviting. The tin ceiling, while low in the upper balcony, adds architectural interest and a feeling of age to the building.
It was actually quieter in the building than I expected, with the dining area full as well as the bar. The conversations created a nice hum in the background without making us have to raise our voices to be heard at our table.
The wait staff was pleasant and attentive. The various courses came out very quickly.
The main dining area is upstairs, so plan ahead if you have mobility issues.

If you like pastrami, this is the place to go. It will knock your socks off. From the pastrami hash on the brunch menu to the pastrami sandwich. You will not be disappointed.
