    Food was delicious. Beet salad wasn’t as good as I’ve had in the past from here, but it is always my go to. The oysters had sand and pieces of shells in them and the onions were tough. Meaning sometimes you don’t cut enough off the putter most of the onion and you get true tough skin layer. The duck was on point. The mussels were good, but could have been balanced better with a little more acidity.

    I had a reservation for 12:15 today. I checked in and was asked if I would like I door or outdoor seating. I said outdoor. The hostess pointed to a line outside and said there is a line. I explained I had recently had surgery and couldn’t stand for very long if I could get a table please, she said you will have to get in line. We waited at least 15 minutes to be seated. I had to sit on the brick light post while we waited. Even though I had a reservation. I just thought it was very rude and unaccommodating. We try to visit Wine Kitchen at least once a month supporting local restaurants. Today I was not impressed. Daisy Price

    This was one of my favorite places. Not any more. It seems they are trying too hard. Too many components on a dish that just don’t go together or are completely superfluous. The wine list is just ok, nothing that one would expect from an establishment that had wine in its name.

    When we made a Saturday 1 pm reservation we anticipated it may be busy. It was! Our server Marcus nonetheless took very good care of us. The kitchen had a bit of a delay but he kept us informed and happy. Simple kindness goes a long way. Well done. Our food was outstanding. We had a lovely meal and always felt welcome. That's what a great restaurant does. We have visited before, and we will be back - SOON!

    Over priced for portions received. Charged for a "special" appetizer that we did not order/receive. Unfortunately did not notice until I fully reviewed receipt today. Wine pour very weak - barely one quarter of the glass. Food was good but definitely not great.

    It had been 4 years since we’d seen our friends. During that time the 4 of us had dealt with retirement, relocation, job loss, new job, cancer, a pandemic, and more. We had so much to catch up on, and the Wine Kitchen was the perfect place! I had the tiny tacos. Highly recommend!! Perfect little bites with the right amount of flavorful crisp! The cocktails were delish. A generous pour with just enough flavor. A marvelous evening and I look forward to going back!

    I was really impressed by the style and atmosphere of the restaurant. I was even more impressed by the excellent service and the concept of wine and liquor flights that they've integrated into their menu. But the food was not good. I got the Denver steak with a twice baked potato... I suffered through an extremely fatty, very chewy meat that didn't have much flavor, and the potato was cooked in a muffin pan (?!?!) vs. just baked as a potato, and the onion/chive flavor was too strong. Given the restaurant's proximity to my office I might come back and try one of their more basic menu items, but the $50 steaks are an absolute pass.

    We enjoyed a lovely meal at the Wine Kitchen; we had friends visiting from out of town and wanted to show them one of the culinary stars of downtown Frederick. We had a variety of entrees, one each of chicken, steak, duck and vegetarian, and everyone's meal was yummy. It was too cool to be outside, but we were still able to enjoy the view of the creek. A wonderful evening!

    Three of us for a special occasion had luncheon appetizers, entrées, wine and dessert. Appetizers were outstanding. Two of the three entrées were superb. The shrimp and grits was best in class. The wine lovers appreciated the wine menu and their choices. Dessert was good but it was disappointing that the brownies were cold in the center. Super service and value.

    We ended up being seated behind a 4 top that had 5 people. This was also done at the next table down. We ended up moving on our own because one of the people in our party had a man that was an inch from her chair. He and his party were paying zero attention and it was ridiculous. While I understand that people are having issues with enough wait staff I still think that the restaurant should ensure a positive dining experience.
