Wonderful place! My husband and I went there for our anniversary, they greeted us with a card from the chef and when we were seated 2 glasses of wine on the house! Food is wonderful. Environment is warm. They are also taking amazing measures during Covid-19.

The Wine Kitchen is one of my very favorite restaurant for several reasons. First and foremost the service is always excellent. The food is fantastic and their menu changes once in a while so makes it interesting to come back and try new things. The food is always excellent and the ambience whether indoor or outdoor is always extremely pleasant. I highly recommend it.

This was our first time dining out since we started quarantining 5 months ago. I was nervous at first. But the staff was so friendly and responsibly I felt at was instantly. The food was delicious, the staff was fabulous, and their attention to detail when it comes to health and safety was excellent. Thank you for a great first entry back into the outside world.

Great place to eat. I'm a very picky .eat and potatoes kind of guy. My girlfriend had been and when I suggested it she asked if I looked at the menu. Lol. The short ribs were amazing. The crabcake was good but not the best I've ever had. It was very spaced out and they we cleaning thoroughly. Then the walk around Carrol Creek summed it up

Great experience at the Wine Kitchen! I had booked a table inside, but once I got there, it was too hot to stay out, so I got a table inside. It was actually much better: there were very few other people inside, I didn't feel concerned about people breathing out too close to me. The food was outstanding. The smoked salmon eggs benedict were delicious. The *only* tiny thing that was missing was perhaps a bed of lettuce to go along with it. The glazed pecan French toast was superb as well. My bloody Mary was amazing and just spicy enough. I'll definitely be back if dining in Frederick again.

Food was not as excellent as usual (? missing ingredients due to supplies), but the table outside was sent up in an excellent fashion for covid protection and service was excellent as well.

When making the reservation for Father's Day, they were beyond accommodating with everything going on with COVID and did everything to make the experience enjoyable. The food was amazing and the décor/vibe of the restaurant was very nice! Would 10/10 recommend. We also came with 2 young kids and was worried it wasn't going to be family friendly but it most definitely was!

We went amidst the COVID-19 reopening. Due to the drastically reduced seating capacity, we were lucky to enjoy some very private moment in a very popular restaurant. We both ordered the Wagyu beef burger which were simply wonderful with tenderness and intense beef taste. The wine by the glass is some of the best in this business. Mine did not disappoint.
