    The food was good for the most part, but it seems that they re-used the kitchen oil for too long; the food was overly greasy and we all felt uncomfortable after our dinner. One example, the biscuits were great but the whipped butter was probably margarine, it had no flavor. The watermelon gazpacho had so much oil added to it, I tasted oil more than watermelon. I had really hoped it would be a good replacement for the lost Family Meal, but I can't imagine going back.

    Food, cocktails, and beer selection were great. Many standard restaurant options had been updated and were more interesting than the norm, because of newer, fresher ingredients. Our server, Leonard was attentive, but didn't intrude. We indicated we were not in a rush and he respected our needs to sit and chat, while we were dining. I was visiting Frederick for a week and after having a very satisfying Sunday brunch there, I returned with guests for dinner.

    ShowroomResponded on September 17, 2022Thank you so much for you amazing review. We are thrilled you had an amazing experience! Please join us again for another meal soon.

    Terrible and disappointing. The burger was tasteless and the so called duck fat fries were plain. The waiter disagreed with us that he had brought us those fries- surprising, since I have ordered that item before. The hostess was not at her post upon entering, we waited 2 minutes- no one was at the front. I requested a booth and she placed us at the back- my chair was against a door- did not understand as there were many other booths open and not used while we dined. My friend was really surprised that adding salmon to a salad was $12.00, making the salad $24- the entree was $26 with salmon. The bread pudding was average, seemed old. I do always enjoy having DC region beers on tap, and I enjoyed that again, the only saving grace for the evening. To finalize the evening as we departed we had many workers say good evening- was surprised . But as I opened the door 5 busboys were near the exit said good night and one shouted duck fat fries. Is it possible that the busboy overhead my conversation with my friend complaining of the fries and chose to mock me on my departure? I have gone many times to this place, but it is not consistent, and always seems overpriced. But after last night’s experience I won’t return. I would not be surprised if they go out of business as they have done before.

    Arriving for our 8:30am reservation for the outdoor patio we had a less than warm welcome. Our waiter was wonderful and made up for the unpleasant welcome. The service was outstanding and cheerful. It is a shame because the outdoor patio is a wonderful place to enjoy a meal and good company.

    It seems to have fallen from grace. Where once it was hoppin’ on a week night and the food was delicious and reasonably priced, especially for how good it tasted, those things are no longer true. The place was empty when we arrived. We ordered a grilled cheese for the kids $10 each. Chicken sandwich (w/o fries) was another $13. Grilled chicken Caesar…$12 for the lettuce and $10 for the chicken. I asked for an additional chicken, unaware of the cost, so $32 for lettuce and chicken. It would’ve been helpful if staff politely pointed that out. The meal was ok and cost nearly $100 after tip. Doubt we’ll ever go back.

    Great food, Great service. We ordered off the special "Beer Week" menu that featured beer pairing with the appetizer and entrée. The meal was excellent and the beer was tasty! I had the Watermelon Gazpacho appetizer and the Meatloaf entrée, both excellent. Definitely order the biscuits, so good!

    We were visiting our son and always look forward to trying “new” restaurants. Showroom server, Val was great...watermelon gazpacho was yummy, burger was juicy but felt for price it would have been nice to include fries, shrimp and grits very good and fish and chips; the fish was good but fries were a disappointment. I thought the pour of wine should have been more. All in all we would recommend for a fun place!

    Lunch came to our table hot, fresh, and delicious—fried chicken for me and fish and chips for my friend. There was enough on my platter (a large chicken-shaped bowl— quite delightful) to provide dinner the next night. Our server was extremely pleasant and helpful (for example, getting us each an extra container of strawberry jam to accompany the biscuits we couldn’t finish and had packed to go). Since we are both still very Covid-conscious, we were pleased that the outdoor dining area was comfortable and spacious. It is e identify heated in cooler weather, so don’t let the season stop you from coming here if you too are still careful about Covid. Great cocktails too—we recommend the pomegranate spritz and cider Bellini.

    Food was great! Service was good but annoying. Someone was at our table every couple mins to ask if we needed something or if they could take something off our table. Very nice staff but we would've liked to have a nice dinner without being interrupted every couple mins. Atmosphere is decent. Very open.

    ShowroomResponded on August 21, 2022Hello Chastity, Thank you for dining at Showroom! We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your meal. Sounds like we might have swung the pendulum in to the overbearing side of the dial, I will speak with the team to find the proper balance attentive and annoying.

    We requested outdoor seating so the noise level was a little higher. Food was good. Got the salmon and requested the sauce on the side which did not come but the salmon was good without it so we didn't ask about the sauce. The braised greens were very good. Wine drink pours are on the short side, but Ok. Service was good. No complaints and will visit again soon.

    Living near Frederick, Bryan Voltaggio's restaurants never fail to disappoint. His ventures in the area range from upscale culinary experiences with Thacher & Rye down to the casual-yet-sophisticated Showroom where we enjoyed a delicious brunch made with fresh and well-treated ingredients. The cheddar chive biscuits were fluffy and moist, the chicken and waffle I ordered was out of this world, with the chicken being fried to perfection, easily shredding with a fork. Everything is made fresh and with care, leading to an out of this world experience.

    ShowroomResponded on August 6, 2022Thank you for the amazing review! We hope to see you again soon.
