I really enjoy oysters and was excited to see a 1/2 deal on Monday nights! It would have been a 5-star experience, except for the fact that some of the oysters were poorly shucked, resulting in a little more grit than one expects. I loved the grilled octopus and the tres leches cake I chose for dessert.

What a wonderful restaurant with such great food. We had a very good waiter… I don’t think I caught his name… from Mongolia, and we made a new friend. Very attentive and cared about our experience. Saeed, the owner, is very welcoming. Even though our anniversary had passed and we really weren’t there for it, they celebrated it anyway. Very special. Great for a special occasion, but it’s also price pretty well for just a culinary night out. Highly recommend.

We made reservations on the recommendation of our daughter, who visited a few months ago for dessert. We arrived about a half hour early, but immediately got a table. Our waiter was fabulous and gave excellent advise on our meals, to the point we asked him to bring us his favorite dessert. It was delicious and perfect for sharing. We had a lovely evening and it reminded us of a similar night in Nice a few years ago. Thanks!

This is a world-class restaurant. The entire experience is perfection every time we go, from the greeting to the check, their entire team is on their A-game and you can tell every single person working there wants every customer to get the best experience possible. The food is absolutely incredible, everything cooked to perfection as you request it. I just cannot say enough good things about this place, we absolutely love eating here and taking friends & family here.

Such a great special event destination. The wait staff was attentive without being cloying or overbearing. Our party’s birthday was celebrated with nice details (hand-written card, confetti on the tablecloth, birthday candles on the desserts, birthday wishes written in chocolate on the dessert plate, and more). On top of all that, the food was delicious.

Our waiter was very nice, knowledgeable, and friendly! He also had a great smile! He was able to recommend some menu items (and we took his recommendation and was very happy). I got the fettuccini with truffle cream sauce (without meat) and others in my party got the spaghetti with ragu sauce and braised short rib ravioli. Our dishes were good but the buratta is incredible! All the fruits paired with the buratta make it so tasty and is definitely something everyone should try!

Located in Georgetown along the canal in a beautiful, old building. The interior is welcoming and worth a walk around to view its decor. We were there over the Christmas/New Years holidays and Filomena's is sure to impress with the holiday decorations as well. The food is Wonderful with Generous portions. "Doggie bags" are a must. Everything is homemade, fresh, mouthwatering, and delicious. Filomena's is reminiscent of going home to dine with an Italian family devoted to authentic regional cuisine served in a welcoming atmosphere. A wonderful experience and not to be missed ;)

Monacacy Crossing continues to put out great food and professional service. My wife had the Bolognese with pasta. She thinks it is the best ragu she has ever tried. In fact she keeps ordering it everytime. I had the tuna with coconut rice which was amazing. This is consistently one of the best places to dine in Frederick.
