We celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary during restaurant week. Sat outside on a beautiful summer night overlooking Carroll Creek.
The restaurant week menu was great and we shared each course. The food was amazing. I love the sparkling wine flight and my husband’s favorite wine was Chateau LaCroix De La Martinique, Cadillac - Semillon.
The Wine Kitchen also gave us a card and a glass of champagne. We live in downtown Frederick and The Wine Kitchen is our favorite!

Excellent dining experience sitting out on the patio overlooking the creek. We had the duck breast and mediterranean grilled chicken. The tomato tartate salad also was excellent. Service was very great. It's really a nice restaurant especially if you can sit outside.

Great service, nice place and good food. Only negative … the food had a monumental amount of salt. We don’t have health issues but can’t imagine someone with hight blood pressure eating the food. I hope if next time we request less salt be added while cooking they comply.

Excellent choice for our 24th anniversary dinner and first time at the wine kitchen. Nice little touches like a card and champagne to start. Then just great food and service. Sat outside and it was a perfect night for that along the creek. Will be back!

We had a reservation for 3 people at 11:15, ordered our food at 11:25, didn’t receive our meal until 12:30. I’m not sure what the delay was. Our food was great, wait staff super nice but our regular waitress was barely present most of our visit.

We had an amazing dining experience at The Wine Kitchen and would highly recommend it. We sat outside which overlooks beautiful Carroll Creek Park. Our waiter Hayden was excellent and recommended the short rib dinner for two with Mac and cheese and twice baked potatoes. We loved it. The short ribs were very tender and cooked to perfection. The Mac and cheese and potatoes were delicious. And I can’t forget to mention the wine we ordered for dinner was the perfect pairing for the ribs. All in all we really enjoyed our dinner and will be back.

My friend and I had a wonderful lunch last Saturday! Our server Hayden was very helpful with selections and overall service. Our food was delicious (burger for me, and trout for her, plus a delish chocolate dessert we both shared) and we had a nice view. The restaurant manager stopped by our table to make sure everything was as we expected, which it was, and then some. It was a lovely time and we agreed that we will be back again soon!

The food and experience was fine, but for the price I would like to see a higher quality meal. For years the Wine Kitchen has been my go to for a nice meal. However the last few time the quality of the food has been declining. I also don’t like that they eliminated the wine room and are using it as just regular dining now. That has impacted the ambiance of the restaurant. Perhaps this is the impact of covid, but I hope we see some improvements as things return to normal.

Lovely evening to dine outside. Food is very good. Excellent service. Portion sizes are just too small for the mussels and tuna tartare. Literally two bites and one taco gone. For the prices charged you need to increase the salad size and the small plates or cut the price. Same for the charcuterie board. Wine prices are good. Not sure we will return

Sam was our server and he was excellent! The only reservation available was at 8:30pm so we had low expectations as we would be one of the last customers. But the food, the service, and the ambiance more than exceeded our expectation! We will be back!
