The Wine Kitchen on the Creek Ratings and Reviews
We had not been to the Wine Kitchen for sometime, actually had forgotten it as a regular dining choice in Frederick. This was a pleasant surprise and we will be more regular guests. The food was excellent and well presented with a respectable list of accompanying wines to choose from of varying price points.
We had a fantastic dinner and our waiter was the best. He was spot on with his food and wine recommendations, he was very attentive but not intrusive. The food was delicious, creative, but not fussy! Although not usually a fan of chocolate desserts; I highly recommend the S’mores dessert....creative genius!
So I came back 2 days later with both sons and my older son’s girlfriend. The butternut squash mignon was a huge hit tried by all! Loved by all! Salads burgers and rockfish were equally enjoyed! Drinks great! Entertained by the descriptions on the cards. Company was phenomenal of course. Laura came by our table to check on us again. She is fantastic and truly makes our experience worth the drive from out of state enjoyed by all! We will be back soon!!
Our food was quite tasty and the service was excellent. My only complaint would be the martini I ordered was awful (to me) due to the “local” gin they suggested. I complained and they immediately corrected the bill and brought me another drink.
All in all, I would have No hesitation in recommending this restaurant to anyone.
My son and I had such an amazing dinner! Best restaurant in Frederick. We started with the Butternut squash medallion main as an appetizer. Truly sensational! I had the rockfish and my son had the swordfish. So tasty and because the meal took so long they brought us a free round of drinks! We were so taken by their service. Again, best restaurant in Frederick from food to unsurpassed service!
We requested to be seated at a corner table, but were told it was a reserved four top. Not so, since a couple arrived 5 minutes later and were seated at the table we requested. We informed the server that we were disappointed in being misinformed. To her credit she relayed our message to the manager who apologized and brought us complimentary dessert and port wine after dinner. Good business decision to keep the customers satisfaction first and address a problem in a positive manner.
Our second time to the Wine Kitchen on the Creek. The food was excellent then and was on this visit as well. We went for our anniversary and thought it to be an excellent choice. If you are looking for a quiet and private restaurant, this is not the place for you as the tables are arranged rather close together and it is a little loud as you would expect at a place with a bar and small lounging area to enjoy wine from their long list of choices. They also have great outdoor seating overlooking Carroll Creek when the weather is warm.
This was my first brunch and as usual, the Wine Kitchen delivered! I had an open-faced hamburger on a half of a crispy brioche, with an over-easy egg on top of it. HOLY COW! It was beyond flavorful. My friend got the quiche of the day which was literally 3 inches tall and light as a feather. We had the aperol spritz which was as good as my first one - had that in Florence! The view, the food, the service - top notch experience...the Wine Kitchen just delivers!
The food was overpriced but decent tasting, or we were just that hungry. What was most upsetting is that they nickel and dime you on the drinks. We had three vodka sodas and they charged $1.00 per drink for the splash of soda water!!! A martini was $14! News flash - it's Frederick MD, not New York City!
Not sure but they probably charged us for the ketchup and use of napkins! Ridiculous! Will NEVER go back and would not recommend.
What a wonderful experience! This is the second time I've dined at The Wine Kitchen and once again I've left impressed. On our open table reservation I put that a guest had celiac and we were celebrating her birthday. Then once we got to the restaurant the waiter noted the gluten free items and said happy birthday when we sat down! Little things like that make all the difference. Food was perfect, drinks were great, and service was amazing. If you're reading this, go to the wine kitchen!
Went to restaurant for an anniversary dinner. Was warmly welcomed upon arrival. On our table was a card from the restaurant congratulating us on our anniversary. The assistant manager brought us two drinks on the house. Nice touch and much appreciated. The meal was outstanding, everything came out hot and perfectly prepared. Absolutely going to go back!
Fantastic experience. Exe Chef visited our table and point out some unique abilities of the restaurant. We got a great discount on a bottle of wine to take home that we were able to try with our dinner. Food was exceptional and we love exploring every course.
I have added the The Wine kitchen on the Creek to my short list of great restaurants I have tried.
The Wine Kitchen never disappoints. Our wonderful waiter Shane took very good care of our table for four. We were seated right away (did make an early reservation) and served in a timely fashion. Everyone was in agreement that the wine flights, food, and dessert were perfect. We'll be back.
Another lovely evening at The Wine Kitchen. The food is not only delicious, creative, fresh and interesting; it actually transports you. The Duck Breast was done differently this time (various dishes do change seasonally) but always great. The Beet Salad, a stellar performance.
