The Wine Kitchen never disappoints! As usual the cocktails and food were incredible! The service was great! The atmosphere is wonderful. This is truly one of our favorite spots in downtown Frederick.
Although they have a great wine selection the food definitely fell short of my expectations. My dinner lacked the complexity I would expect from a restaurant in this price range.
The swordfish was fishy and part of it was raw. I asked the waiter if it was safe to eat and he said yes. The raw and strong fishy smell ruined this meal. My wife would not send it back. On the otherhand, my food was excellent
Have visited with my husband a little while ago and really enjoyed our dinner and the service. Went with a friend a fee days ago and was again very pleased with our dinner. The server was friendly and knowledgeable. Wish the prices were a bit lower, but I would still recommend this lovely restaurant.
Very nice restaurant seating overlooking the canal.
The food great.Would eat here again.
We had two wonderful meals here, and the people working there were fantastic! We will definately be going back next time we are in Frederick.
Wine Kitchen is our "go to" place in Frederick. We are never disappointed in chef Jeff's menu (which changes seasonally based on what he can get from local farmers), and the general manager, John, runs a great service team and keeps the wine list fun, interesting, and approachable. You can find everything from a value-driven Malbec to a single vineyard "blow your socks off" Barolo that might be the best wine you've ever tasted. Wine Kitchen gets bonus points because the servers take the time to get to you know you, and know us by name whenever we come. We'll be back very soon, thanks for another wonderful dinner!
Food overall was pretty good, but dinner came out cold so I sent it back and it came back cold again. Wasn't going to send it back once more so I just kept it moving since it didn't taste bad it was just cold. Manager gave a free dessert because of the mistake so that was nice.
We’ve been many times and really enjoy this restaurant. Unfortunately this experience wasn’t quite up to par compared to our other dining experiences.
Eat here. Mussels were fantastic. Duck breast dish was really tasty. Pumpkin pie outstanding. Service was excellent. We'll be back.
We've been coming to this Wine Kitchen location since it first opened and have never, ever been disappointed with the food and service. In fact, this is our true "Go To" spot in the Frederick area both for ourselves and when we have friends in town.
First off, the food is always creative and delicious without being overly fussy. The Wine list is ever changing but there is always something that goes with the food we order. An example would be two nights ago when dining here with friends and the food ordering crossed many different styles (Vegetarian, chicken fish and beef) and we still had no difficulty finding a bottle that went well with each dish. Kudos to a great wine program.
Finally, service has always been very good to outstanding. Although we are obviously 'regulars" we can't always count on a given server knowing us by sight. Yet, we have never had any issues.
Again, this place is well worth the visit. I can't imagine anyone being anything other than impressed. Bravo!
A lovely evening with friends and a terrific staff (kitchen and front). I wish the noise level was a bit more controlled. Maybe some decorations that absorb sound would help?
Birthday dinner for the boyfriend. Incredible food even better service. Our table was perfect and everything was timed perfectly and we were never rushed. We did pick six, delicious! Grilled octopus which was outrageous and the butcher flight which the birthday boy loved. Topped it off with the triple bubbly flight and the red carpet flight for a perfect evening.
Super dinner. Super environment. Super service. A wonderful evening.
Visited with a guest while in the area for a wedding. The staff was knowledgeable, professional, and responsive. There was something on the menu for everyone- vegetarian, seafood, beef, chicken all offeres with flavorful sides.
Great bday meal at one of our favorite restaurants! Never disappoints! Our server Hadden was amazing!
This was about the fifth time I've had lunch at The Wine Kitchen, but today was the first time I selected their daily special, which was cioppino. This seafood stew contained shrimp, mussels, halibut, and swordfish, seasoned delicately with white wine, tomato, and fennel that were identifiable. What made this stew sublime though is a mystery to me. It is by far the finest example of cioppino I've ever had. The chef deserves good notice for such an entry! Needless to say, I'll be going back again.
Great hospitality, cocktails
Really nice outdoor seating area. We arrived planning to eat dinner and have some wine. However after sitting there for more than 40 minutes we had only been offered wine and we decided to pay our check and walk to our favorite restaurant downtown, Firestone’s, and eat dinner there. The food is much better at Firestone’s and the service always reliable unlike the wine kitchen.
I have been to wine kitchen several times. On this visit, the food wasn’t as good as in the past. It was kind of disappointing. The waitress and drinks were amazing.
The food is outstanding and the wine fabulous. The service is excellent and we can’t wait to return. We live close to 2 hours away so we have to plan an occasion to coincide but it is well worth the effort.
The food was awesome as always, but the bar service is very slow. Our food came before the wine we ordered again!
We were thoroughly delighted with our experience at the Wine Kitchen. The restaurant even satisfied our San Francisco visitors, which is high praise!
The manager brought complimentary glasses of champagne to honor our Anniversary. Very classy.
I had the best burger and drink at The Wine Kitchen!
The flexibility of the staff as our guest list grew, the variety of appetizer, entree and dessert items, the wine and wine cards and the incredible service are all amazing. It is our go to place for almost anything!
Great meal and great service. The Chief is very creative and accommodating. Each course at the Wine Kitchen is done exquisitely.
It's very loud. Not great for a date night.
Pear gazpacho with crab was superb.
Tuna tacos were tasty.
Salmon was overcooked.
Pear dessert was super creative, stuffed with dates complemented by goat cheese and honey.
Always love the French press coffee.
Great, very creative cuisine and outstanding staff. We dined outside and and it couldn’t have been nicer.
Great food, excellent service. A bit pricey, but not ridiculous. The spare, modern decor is fine, but lack of sound absorbing elements does create an echo chamber so it is noisier than is necessary, even on less busy nights. Still, the slight drawbacks are completely smashed by some of the best food and service we have experienced in years! Highly recommend.
We had dinner at the WIne Kitchen last night to celebrate our anniversary, and it was amazing!! I made reservations on OpenTable, and it allows you select a special occasion if applicable, so I did. When we got to the restaurant, there was small card for us to wish us a Happy Anniversary, and our waiter brought a small celebratory drink for us to enjoy. Just a little gesture, but we were both very impressed with the attention to detail.
We've been here before, so we knew the food is amazing and their selection of wines and cocktails is always interesting. We had the halibut and the butchers flight of steaks, plus of course a couple of wonderful desserts, and everything was really just perfect. Our waiter was very easy going and clearly knowledgeable about the menus (we had a hard time narrowing down our selections!).
Thank you to the Wine Kitchen for an amazing, relaxed dinner. I promise we will be back!
Wonderful place for many occasions but we love having brunch here, especially at a shaded outside table overlooking Carroll Creek. So enjoyable.
It was not our best experience- a series of unfortunate events:
The host greeted us immediately but made us wait 25-30 mins to be seated w/a reservation. There were few empty prepped tables. At first we didn’t get too upset bc it was a bit busy and believed she was getting us ready. Well that didn’t happen. When we got seated it was at one of those empty tables we watched: it wasn’t touched since we arrived - so of course you can understand how upset we felt after bc that was unnecessary and uncalled for.
My spouse was starving and unwell/injured to begin with. Then the manager accidentally elbows my spouse in the head while he was talking to the table behind him. Of course a sorry was said & we get it was unintentional, but it doesn’t take the salt off the wound.
And worse yet, my spouse’s wagu steak was served raw! RAW (order was for medium)! The waiter was apologetic and was in disbelief. The manager attempted to “make up” for it by bringing ahi tuna when all spouse wanted was to leave - that was not well thought out bc ahi tuna is raw. Literally a second ago the complaint was your customer doesn’t eat raw food ... we were astounded. I didn’t have a problem with ahi tacos bc I eat sushi where he doesn’t. So after a back and forth we kept it and I ate it while my spouse continued to starve - imagine my guilt. Another steak was brought out cooked later, but it wasn’t the same steak. Not sure what they served as a replacement.
The manager attempted, but wasn’t listening. He downplay the raw steak making it seem like a preference issue & made unwanted solutions. Although he apologized, i can tell he was annoyed his offers were rejected but he continued anyways. He should’ve discounted our bill or offer credit for next time- but that isn’t occur.
Only good thing was my filet was perfect! I had no personal complaint regarding my food. And at least manager didn’t charge us for the raw steak/tacos.
It is unfortunate, the wine kitchen is one of our favorite restaurants. We asked the waiter if there was a change to cooking staff or chef. The food is usually outstanding and both and my wife and did not complete our meals where we usually finish desiring more as we leave. Not to say we won't give our restaurant another opportunity but last night was disappointing.
Great food and great service! I would definitely come back!
Wine Kitchen is my go to restaurant in FREDERICK. Always great
Been going here for years. The Wine Kitchen is a great treat for a special occasion or a night out. Great wine with quirky descriptions, and delicious food.
The service was a bit slow for a place that wasn't fully occupied. Maybe half of the dining room was full. And they were out of entrees and ingredients for beverages on a Sunday mid-afternoon. First they didn't have all the ingredients for the Island Punch drinks. Then after the waiter placed our order, he came back to tell us that the rib tips weren't available. Not sure if I will be back if this is the standard. Also, the ambiance is a bit plain. We sat in a larger booth in the back and didn't feel cozy or inviting - would be great if they added some artwork and/or colored cushioning to that area. The starter portions are really small and doesn't cater for a large group (we were a group of 8) so will have to order several of the same item to accommodate. Other than that the food was really good, especially the mac and cheese, sirloin steak and lamb. I would also recommend sitting out on the patio as it has an excellent view of the creek.
We went on a beautiful Sunday afternoon and enjoyed the outdoor seating along the water. Our waiter was only somewhat attentive. The food was very good, but the portion size was small and overpriced.
