    A lovely day to sit outside. It is nice to have a place that takes reservations for outside seating because one of our party does not eat inside due to health issues. Our waiter was attentive and took good care of us. The food and the drinks were delicious.

    Outstanding place for a great meal! Service is excellent! Outside patio dining area is excellent! Any meal on the menu is off the charts delicious! Wife and I have dined there multiple times and have never been disappointed! I highly recommend Monocacy Crossing restaurant for anybody looking for a great place to eat in the Frederick Maryland area.

    The crabby egg appetizer is always a winner. This is the first time I ordered the mussels. Bad choice. The broth had little taste, but worse was that they didn't deliver the bowls for the shells and the seafood fork until I was almost done with the mussels. And I had to prompt the server for one of the guests second glass of wine which had been forgotten. The grilled steak salad was not at all as good as it was the last time I ordered it. The meat was barely warm and many pieces were full of fat. The server herself was great; however... not all aspects of service were acceptable. I am going to say I wouldn't recommend this time. There isn't an option for "meh".

    Excellent Food! I have never had an item I didn't enjoy yet. Would have loved to have sat outside on the lovely patio, but it was booked. One of the few places that accept reservations for outside. Nonetheless, the dining room was quiet and enjoyable!

    We were there for lunch. My main issue is the lunch menu which is handed to the customer on a sheet of paper. There was a good selection but absolutely no details and no mention of sides being a part of the meal. I ordered the fish tacos. The fish was Seared Ahi Tuna, which, of course is raw. The waiter did mention it after I ordered so I thought I would try it. I was not told that the toppings contained cilantro, which I do not like. Worse than that, it came with beans and rice. I don’t eat either! The desserts, which, I believe we’re good, but again had no description. My daughter ordered the chocolate truffle. We expected a plate with several truffles but got a dense chocolate cake. This is a nice restaurant and has a good reputation but I know I’ll think twice before I go there again.

    My friends and I have been having lunch at Monocacy Crossing for about 25 years. We've loved every moment. With the exception of the Covid years, we ate there 9 or 10 times per year. I drive for 2 1/2 hours from Elizabethtown, PA. They drive about 45 minutes from Reston and Loudon County, VA. We are in the process of getting back on schedule this year. We invariably get the sauteed scallops entree. Or the quiche of the day, on rare occasions. But everything we've sampled has been marvelous and creative. Be sure to save room for the poundcake dessert -- or any other!

    A very pleasant evening. Wait staff was scrambling to cover and they ran out of wine glasses on wine special night. But the food was great, wine was wonderful, and we had a very nice outdoor dining experience

    The patio is a delight and comfortable place to sit... unless it is a 90+ degree day, the sun is shining and you don't get one of the tables in the shade. We did NOT let that stop us from enjoying the vibe, food, or outdoor venue.

    What a pleasant surprise to find this little gem of a restaurant. We added it to our day trip to the Monocacy Battlefield. The Reuben and the Chicken Cobb Salad were both super. Our server, Sara, was pleasant and very attentive. Such a lovely place.

    Waitress was fantastic. When we arrived it was quite noisy and we had to yell to hear each other talk. But after a few particular tables left, the ambiance was much quieter. Overall, we loved it and are looking forward to going again. The food was exquisite!

    The food was outstanding. The depth of flavor in the broth of the seafood pappardelle was amazing. The pasta was perfectly done, as was the seafood. The coconut pound cake is not to be missed and make sure to add the homemade vanilla ice cream. I wish the wine list was a bit more expansive. The only negative was that our main course was served prior to the used appetizer dishes being removed. I think the staff that presented the main course should have cleared the plates at that time. Otherwise, I would certainly recommend Monocacy Crossing and will definitely be back.

    We ate outside on the patio on a Friday night and had a wonderful experience. Our server, Josie, was incredibly knowledgeable about the wine selections and menu, and everything was delicious. The patio is so relaxing and the live acoustic music was great. I would highly recommend Monocacy Crossing!
