We will not try to have dinner with friends on a Friday night during happy hour again...a small bar, but VERY loud.

Wonderful restaurant! Made reservations for my husband's birthday and we had a great experience from start to finish. When we arrived, there was a thoughtful, handwritten note to welcome us and wish my husband a happy birthday! Service was top notch; friendly and knowledgeable. The food was absolutely delicious and there were so many unique choices...and the wine flights are a lot of fun! We will definitely be back soon!

We had a great meal and service was excellent. Raw oysters, Venison Ossa Bucco, and Filet Mignon were all prepared perfectly. Drinks were good too. Excellent service and relaxed atmosphere.

This was our first visit and boy did brunch impress us! Yum! The Sea Buscuit (a lobster biscuit smothered in lobster-bisque-like gravy and scrambled eggs was decadent. The Maryland Benedict was equally as good - we took advantage of the 3 for $26 brunch and it was a bargain! We’ll be back!

Our service was seriously slow. Our server rarely stopped by our table, so our drinks were empty often. We had to ask her to tell us the specials and for a dessert menu. I may have enjoyed it more also if the tables weren’t so crammed in next to each other. At one point the lady at the table next to us basically was in our conversation bc we were almost touching elbows. The flights of wines and spirits were unique and enjoyable though. The duck was amazing, but for the price point I’d rather have a quieter dinner elsewhere with better service and more personal space.

This was my third visit to the Wine Kitchen. Everything was great. My only complaint is the acoustics. Hard to carry on a private conversation because of noise level and seating arrangements. Don't really like sitting so close to others.

We've been here twice for dinner and once for brunch. Fantastic food and service every time! Anyone that gives The Wine Kitchen a bad review is probably just a miserable person anyway.

Decided on this restaurant based on friends commenting on the plethora of vegetarian options... Not so. Now, the menu could have been a special menu due to the holiday... But vegetarian spouses still want to be taken out for special occasions /holidays. One vegetarian entree... I stopped counting carnivore meals after I hit 20 options. Food however was excellent.

Service by the waitstaff was below average if you expect exceptional service for high dollar /high end cuisine. I do. Especially when you've paid over $70/person...that's not including tip. For about the same price per person, go to Founding Farmers. Exceptional service, food, and a nice relaxed ambience.

We love going to Wine Kitchen... we've been a few times now from dates to just meeting up with friends. Unfortunately, our waitress just didn't do it for us. She was rude and very pushy. It just brought down the whole experience. Not sure if we'll be back for a while after this.

Not too big or too small of a restaurant; just right. Vast selection of wines. The wine flights are really great. Also, I finally found a bourbon cocktail I liked and they call it “Ol’ Smokey”. Yum. Very popular location. We saw many “walk-ins” walk away because the placed was booked full. We were surprised at the noise level. I wouldn’t call it romantic because it was way too noisy and crowded. The food was very good and the selections were reasonable; not too many or too few choices. We will definitely return. We want to check it out during a non-holiday occasion.

We got the lunch special— a steak sandwich— which was flavorful but the steak pieces were too thick. The pavlova dessert was wonderful.

We enjoyed the menu and wine pairings. The Beet salad starter was very good. The Pappardelle and mushrooms was a bit salty.
The lobster entree was exceptional and the truffles with Port and Vin Santo was a very enjoyable dessert

This is our favorite restaurant for Sunday brunch, since it’s a good distance from where we live we generally don’t go during the week. This past Sunday, the chef’s creativity really showed with his quiche creation. My wife thought she had tasted it all but he whipped up a Super Bowl inspired nacho quiche..... unbelievably good! Their quiche is probably the best we’ve tasted, anywhere. I had my usual Cobb Salad, Tuna Tartar Tacos and then added the Steak and Eggs. The first two are my staples then I usually mix up the entree. We would highly recommend Wine Kitchen on the Creek, you can’t go wrong with the food, the staff and the wine selection or the bar.,.. great place
