We had 7:00 reservations and arrived on time, but WK was running behind. Although we were offered and given three glasses of cava, walking around the creek in 30 degree weather was less than ideal. We would have appreciated a phone call in advance rather than being told to wait outside. Additionally, it was one of our birthdays, and no service member acknowledged the occasion. Food was great, service just okay.

Cosmopolitan was too sweet. They tried 3 times to improve it but fell short. I ordered the half chicken which had a very sweet taste to it. Wasn’t a fan. I will stick to the braised beef tips.

It was a delightful day to sit outside and enjoy the fine food and service while listening to a harpist and seeing all the people strolling along the Carroll Creek. The food is always so creative and delicious.

Opted for the outside tent hence the downrating on ambience.

$13 lunches a very good value.

Wine Kitchen tries very hard to please in these trying times.

Service was good but the food was subpar. We first dined there a couple years ago and it was great . I’m not sure what happened but the food was awfully bad . Disappointed

First time for me, and will be back. Started off with an unfortunate 30+ min delay from our reservation time. Without a bar to spend time at, it seemed that much longer, but Laura the manager kept checking in with us and went out of her way to make things right for us. The charcuterie board was amazing (& filling), the salads crisp & flavorful, and the short rib entrée was one of the best I've ever had. And I thoroughly enjoyed my specialty cocktail. I wanted to try dessert, but there was just no room. Will definitely return, especially when it is warmer for outdoor seating

Actually a last minute reservation that turned out so well. Our server, Sam, was super-friendly and helpful with the menu and wine list. A limited lunch menu actually was great. When COVID-19 gives you limited business, do a few menu items really well. This is a very good restaurant that deserves lots of attention. Thank you!

The Wine Kitchen is a fabulous and safe restaurant. Every meal that the three of us ordered was exceptional. We went during happy hour and our server made sure our order got in before the 5:00 end to happy hour.

We felt safe in the heated and air controlled area in the tent and had a beautiful view of the boats that are still lit up on the creek.

I would recommend to everyone that The Wine Kitchen is a wonderful atmosphere for a delicious meal and comfortable get away!
