    Another great experience for us as returning customers and a first time for friends of ours! Food was excellent, cocktails were great and we never felt rushed like I have at other reservation-based restaurants. Can’t wait to go back!

    I am thrilled that the Wine Kitchen is back to its Stellar Service and Meal Preparation. Food presentation was excellent and fresh. The Servers were very attentive too. The new dress is very smart, as well. My quest was thrilled with her first visit. Kudos to management and the Team! See you soon!

    What an outstanding restaurant. Our server, Jen, was fantastic. Offered great recommendations which we ordered and enjoyed. Drink menu was awesome, we never find a restaurant with an Albariño or Chenin Blanc on the by the glass menu, so that was such a nice surprise. It was our 13th wedding anniversary and there was a hand written card at our table when we sat down - very nice touch, so classy. We had the best experience and cannot wait to come back!

    This place is clearly very popular and has great reviews, but the atmosphere was just ok and the food was pretty underwhelming (except for the dessert which was excellent). Both our meals felt overpriced for the quality of the food.

    Exceptional cocktails expertly made. Delicious, locally-sourced and house-made menu items. Knowledgeable, friendly and attentive staff. A unique wine list with a variety of wine flights that allow you to pair wine with your food. Nothing was rushed, everything came out at a comfortable pace. An excellent dining experience.

    We were celebrating our anniversary.We were given an anniversary card and complementary sparking wine. Very nice touch! We shared two appetizers-guacamole and citrus chips and empanadas were so good . The angus rib dinner for two was delicious-plenty of food. We ended the night with an ice cream flight. We had outstanding service-the waitress checked on us regularly, but not invasive. It was our first time at the Wine Kitchen. We’ll be back. Thank you so much for a lovely dinner.

    First time back in a few years. Best beet salad my wife ever had. Entrees were great. They knew how to make a great Boulevardier. Would have liked a little lower lighting but they did dim it later. Music was odd, some kind of hip rock, didnt fit the venue but not objectionable.

    We always enjoy the Wine Kitchen. It is our favorite restaurant in Frederick. Everything is stellar. The drinks, the oysters, and the entrees: short ribs and salmon were excellent, just delicious! The server was so pleasant and attentive. The atmosphere is lovely. It was a bit noisier than usual because it was prime time 7 pm dinner crowd, the place was packed but not to the point of being annoying, it was just vibrant. During the warmer months you can sit outside (first come, first served), and we really enjoy that. We stop for lunch often and then always have creative delicious options. You must go!

    I have a hearing impairment and I’ve been to this restaurant enough times to know where it’s noisy and to make a special effort in the reservation to note that I have a hearing impairment. When we arrived they gave me two options of a table both on the noisiest areas. They are well aware that the quietest tables aren’t in either of those areas. Those were the only two and it seemed like they were unwilling to make any other accommodation for my disability even though I had specifically requested it in advance and it was as simple as a different table. I’ll probably go back one more time and be a lot more forceful about being unwilling to have bad service and no accommodation for my hearing loss. The only good thing is that I wasn’t wearing my hearing aids last night or I would have had to take them out because it would have been painfully loud.

    Wine flights are always fun to try out new wines and they had quite a few to offer besides wines by the glass and other drinks and cocktails. The food was good, small lunch menu. I have some current dietary restrictions so I was limited in what I could eat. I had the Vichyssoise which was delicious paired with some yummy lightly toasted bread with a touch of olive oil. My husband has the chicken sandwich with fries and he said it was good. We were fortunate to get a table by the window so we could look out on the “creek.” If I find myself in Frederick again I’d go back.

    I love this restaurant. They always treat my husband and I so well. The food is very good. On this visit, my medium steak was slightly overcooked but even so the flavor was amazing. Our waiter, Anthony, was very personable and professional but seemed a little overwhelmed by the number of tables he had, I assume. In my view, the Wine Kitchen is the best restaurant in Frederick.

    Our server (our table was in the partly enclosed area) was excellent - very attentive and knowledgeable about the food and wine. The appetizer (tuna mini tacos) and main food (ribs for two) was very good (as usual). Old fashioned - super. The wine (from Paso Robles) went very well with our food.
