Sitting at the high table, watching the people of Frederick go by, was such a treat. The food was wonderful, as always. But don't miss the Rare Manhattan as an opening of the meal. And you must have the Molten Lemon Cake. It is to die for. My husband is not a dessert fan, and he always orders it.
For special occasions - perfect place - great food/wine and great service
Had another great meal, desert and cocktails at TR. Jason chose some good wine to go with the food. He's talented at this; and this wasn't the first time.
The food and waitress were excellent but on my reservation I indicated that it was my girlfriend's birthday and was surprised that it was not even acknowledged. I even ordered dessert in hopes that it would receive some recognition but no.
Great cocktails and the food, spare rib and rockfish dinners were delicious. Very nice, fresh salads and the Panko shrimp app was perfect. Our waiter, Jeff was terrific. Outstanding meal and service.
Always great food, great service, and great time. Thanks!
Menu had lots of choices but we had was wonderful.
Megan was a great server. Food and Wine was fantastic. Will definitely be back.
Great service, great food, the restaurant itself is elegant but has some modern look. Waitresses were attentive but not overbearing. The food, quality and portions were perfect. Not a trough of food, but not small bites.
Our favorite restaurant in Frederick. The scallops were delicious. The service was wonderful too.
The food and service was phenomenal! My husband and I ordered something from each section of the menu and ordered the wine the bold red and fruity red flights. Our server was able to answer any question that we had regarding food and wine. We will definitely be going back someday soon!
Excellent filet mignon and scalloped potatoes. The Tasting Room is one of our favorites.
An excellent choice in Frederick. Lots of strict observation of social distancing. Fried green tomatoes, Caesar salad, scallops , Lobster pasta amazing.
Scallops a wonderful fall dish. Fried green tomatoes amazing and I used to live in NOLA!!
Great atmosphere . For 2, I would recommend the high tops with a view outside located in the bar.
Excellent atmosphere and great food/drink. Will be eating here again for sure.
Wonderful experience all around. Are waiter was terrific. From the minute we walked in until we left a certifiable 10 out of 10 the experience.
Never disappointed for a lovely dinner out. We celebrated my husbands birthday. Everything was perfect!
The food was great. Everything we had was delicious
*Crab Dip is creamy and perfectly seasoned.
*Braised Octopus is just out of this world amazing! The texture was a pleasant surprise along with the sauce and couscous mix.
*Roasted Duck with collards, celeriac puree and pickled shallots was out of this world. The only thing about this dish I was not happy about was the serving size of the duck confit. We felt as though the portion could have been more.
*Filet Mignon served with au gratin along with sauce béarnaise. We thoroughly enjoyed this meal. The only issue with this was that I asked for medium well and got a well done Filet Mignon.
We also enjoyed some Passion Apple cocktails, I am not sure If I have the name of this correct but this drink is just perfect. The cocktail has a nice balance of sweet and sour with a beautiful edible apple crisp clipped on the side of the drink. I had 2 myself lol. We will be back again.
The cocktails were delightful and our apps were delicious! We'll definitely be back.
Always fantastic. Had Short Ribs and Scallop entrees. Both were amazing. Best wine selection in town.
Waitress was perfectly attentive food couldn’t have been better!! Wonderful!!
Everything was delicious and the service was spectacular
Service was very good and we loved the waitress who worked with us. We were a little bummed the half bottle of wine we wanted to order was unavailable, but we quickly found another suitable drink. The lamb dish was not very good. When we first received it, it was literally cold and the meat was glistening. After sending it back, it was returned in good condition to be sure. Still, the sauce was thin and very uninspired. I would not recommend this dish to anyone. On the other hand, my partner's lobster pasta dish was fantastic. The crème brûlée and bread pudding desserts were outstanding. Overall, a good dining experience.
Let me start by saying for several years this has been our favorite place to go in Frederick.
The Beef Carpaccio was bland and uninteresting.
The Caesar salads that came with the entree were tasteless... essentially Romain with grated cheese (no discernible dressing) my wife’s included brown lettuce.
The entree was good... Sea scallops with pork belly.
The speciality cocktails were very good.
Sever was good, however didn’t question us sending the salads away after one bite, I’m sure it hadn’t been the first time she’s had that reaction.
Over-all very disappointing, this is the 2nd disappointing visit we’ve had in a row at the Tasting Room, it will be a long time before we try again.
Service outstanding !! Food was absolutely spot on...
Fantastic experience. Tasty food and great service.
Went here for my Anniversary dinner and the food was amazing, our server Amanda was very professional and accommodating. They didn’t have cocktail sauce for the Panko Shrimp and we asked for ketchup and horseradish and they delivered!! We are definitely coming back!
Had a wonderful meal on a Friday night. Had to wait a bit for our table but it was no problem at all and totally understandable, given the reduced indoor dining. Staff was very attentive throughout. Food was great and uniquely done. Drinks were yum.
A nice slice of sophistication in downtown Frederick. The quality of food and service is unmatched.
What a wonderful experience! Everything was excellent! From the Crab Ravioli to my Sea Scallops and my son's Braised Short Rib! The sparkling Blanc de Blancs & the Pinot Noir from Oregon were both amazing! Cynthia was delightful and took really good care of us. We will be back soon!
very nice restaurant, had a very good time and the staff was very professional and personably
Really excellent meal, each course is to be savored. Flavors are layered and so satisfying. The staff service is excellent, very knowledgeable, anticipate needs and friendly. Highly recommend!
Went for lunch, which was excellent. We will be back next for dinner!
Our go to in Frederick especially for special occasions. Great food, amazing service and wine list. Always good to make a reservation- they had champagne ready for us when we arrived for our anniversary. Great place to support especially during this time!
It is a very nice place! The drinks are really good!
Outstanding service and food. We met the owner and enjoyed talking with him. This is our new go to in Frederick
