    It was my wife’s birthday. As per usual, I booked a dinner with The Wine Kitchen. As per usual, we left satisfied and inspired. Everything was delicious and plating was beautiful. The attention to detail and delivery of excellent food is a reason we keep coming back.

    All-in-all, we would highly recommend The Wine Kitchen. We’ve eaten at some extraordinary restaurants in NYC, so perhaps our standards are a little unfair to compare against. The food, service, and ambiance were all very good.

    The wine kitchen was a fabulous experience for my birthday. Elevated dishes with fabulous service. The butcher’s steak flight was cooked to perfection and the Mac and cheese side was fabulously creamy and well seasoned. The salt flight that accompanied dinner was a unique and tasty edition to the table. The selection of drinks met all in our party’s palates. The servers were knowledgeable about all the items, friendly, and ensured we had a lovely meal. A definite repeat.

    I will preface this with not knowing if there is a staff shortage at this restaurant or not. The service has been noticeably less attentive the last 2 visits we have made. The food was good but did have to send the steak back for temperature....the steak was prepared properly after that but it seemed to take a bit of time for the server to come back to check on us when the entrees arrived. We were able to flag down a different server to initiate the return....normally used to be a go-to for us but not sure anymore......

    Out Reservation was 2:45pm, first time in Fredericks. The hostess (female) seemed friendly enough to but told us when seated that we had to hurry and make a selection the kitchen was closing. We ordered drinks, when I asked for a bottle of wine the male (another hostes) seemed put out about it. When he brought us the bottle he slammed the bottle down on the table, initially I thought it slipped but he left then came back with a metal cool for the bottle with no ice in it. Most would place the bottle in the cooler he just slammed the cool down and walked away. Soon our waiter came, he was wonderful, took our order and ensured we were happy before he took his break, before leaving he introduced us to a new waiter. After that it was fine. Not sure I would go back but gave the waiter a large tip.

    We went to The Wine Kitchen to celebrate our silver wedding anniversary (25 years). The meal was absolutely out of this world. The staff was friendly, and our waiter was a delightful young man. When making the reservation through Open Table we indicated that it was our anniversary. We were immediately presented with a thoughtful card, and also two glasses of wine on the house to celebrate our anniversary. Such lovely, thoughtful touches to the experience. Yes, I would highly recommend The Wine Kitchen and have numerous times.

We went for my boyfriends birthday and when we arrived we had a little birthday card handed to him with a $10 coupon for out next visit. Coupon aside it was a nice touch to have a card for him - was not expecting that at all!

    The Salad Nicoise had no tuna or anchovies, and the lettuce was wilted. The pastrami was tough and didn't taste much like pastrami. There was no rye bread or brown mustard. It was served on a croissant roll with cheese and red cabbage (in the sandwich). It was not hot. Garage parking is available nearby for $1/hr. The Wine Kitchen in Leesburg is much better.

    We enjoyed lunch outdoors on the patio. I chose a newly added summer appetizer, blueberry gazpacho, and shrimp salad roll. The gazpacho had a lemon and mild jalapeno flavor added to the blueberries with a touch of buttermilk. It was deliciously refreshing for a hot summer day. The shrimp salad roll from the $15 Lunch section of the menu was deliciously seasoned with fresh dill in a light dressing, accompanied by a side salad. My friend enjoyed the pear salad with plenty of mixed greens, red cabbage, walnuts and gorgonzola and later suggested to the server that it should be served in a larger bowl. The iced tea was an herbal infused black tea from a local tea purveyor and was quite refreshing. This restaurant is consistent with it's high quality of food and service both for lunch and dinner.

    I think the kitchen needs to consider changes to the Butternut Mignon dish. Rare for Wine Kitchen, but I didn't enjoy it. The butternut seemed undercooked (tough and not flavorfully unctious as expected). There didn't seemed to be a lot of flavor. At least several of the accompanying Trumpet Mushrooms were tough beyond belief. The dish sounded great as described on the menu (and usually at Wine Kitchen that means something super is coming), but, in this case, the execution of the dish left a lot to be desired. My wife's duck was incredible. Should have gone with real meat.

    This is a great place to get together with friends for lunch. There is something for everyone on the menu, and lunch prices are reasonable for such outstanding food. The restaurant staff members are upbeat, genuinely friendly and seem to really care that you have a fine experience at their restaurant. If it's hot, cold or rainy, you can sit by large windows and enjoy the view. In good weather, you can sit outside and enjoy the full splendor of Frederick's Carroll Creek. The Wine Kitchen is truly one of the Jewels of Frederick!

    My wife and I have regularly been visiting the WK for several years now on our anniversary. When we couldn't celebrate for two years in a row we decided to go halfway through the year during the summer. Although they had to reschedule my original reservation, they more than compensated us with their service. We were greeted by a "Happy Anniversary" card and sparkling wine flutes courtesy of the management. The food, as usual, was incredibly delicious and the wine flights are always a great. We recommend the WK to everyone!

    The octopus appetizer was overpriced- $17 for 2 very small pieces of octopus. But the slaw it was served with was delicious. Lobster bisque was nothing special. Short rib was nicely done. Carrots on the side were very good. Denver steak was gristly. Overall spent $175 (not including tip) for an ok meal and no dessert. I would normally expect excellent at that price.

    The combination of extraordinary achievement in the food, the wines, and the staff makes The Wine Kitchen Frederick’s foremost shining star of restaurants! When you are able to combine that with a beautiful day and dining out, overlooking the creek, all the better! Every single visit here is always an outstanding dining experience. Seafood, steak, and starters are all fantastic. The wine options are incredibly diverse, and the tasting options give you an opportunity to create your own customized wine flights.

    The Wine Kitchen thrives on service. It’s pricey, quality is good but not excellent, the selection is so-so. But what really shines is their attention to service . Upon arrival, we received two free glasses of champagne because it was our anniversary.I was pleased with the amount of time it took to get our meal, yet they offered us a complimentary flight of wine to make up for the delay. The atmosphere is great. Servers are professional and pleasant. Overall, I recommend it for any special occasion.
