Thank you for always providing great service and food/drink. It’s our favorite Frederick restaurant.
Celebrating a birthday.
Definitely recommend!!! We will be visiting again!
The food was good as usual. 4 stars due to the size of the crab cake entree. This was our first time ordering it and unfortunately we were disappointed with the size for the price (more like tasting size) . Our waiter Jason was great!
I owe Open Table a huge debt of gratitude because I had never heard of The Tasting Room until they sent me an email about restaurants that had started using their service. I don't know how I missed them. We live in upper Montgomery, not Frederick, county, but I'm usually pretty knowledgeable about the restaurants there.
We had a superior meal there on Friday. Knowing I couldn't eat my dinner if I had an appetizer, I went without, but my husband got an excellent lobster chowder which put most lobster bisques to shame. I got a very good rack of lamb, but the star of the evening was definitely the crab cakes. Now, I was born and raised in Baltimore where we are very picky about our state dish, but my husband is a DC native, and he'll order crab cakes almost anywhere. (shudder) However, I hereby testify that the crab cakes at the Tasting Room are some of the best I've ever had, and probably the best I've had in many years. They weren't huge, mind you, but the two cakes were easily sufficient with the side dishes to satisfy my husband's large appetite. They were sweet, full of large chunks of backfin crab meat, and, whatever they use for filler was unnoticeable in both the taste and texture. We will definitely go back and, even with the limits for quarantining, we will not be going alone.
All vegetables were cold.
For the price, we hoped food portions were larger.
Wonderful meal as always!
The hostess was not very friendly the waitress was excellent the door says they open at eleven but they will not let you in until 11:30 the food is expensive but not outstanding the crab dip is good but the bread served with it is too hard French toast was ok main dishes took a little while overall I wouldn’t go back the parking is a headache you have to pay and walk a bit will try another place for the price
This restaurant is clean and the staff is very hospitable. The food is excellent every time we visit! On this occasion we learned the owner is a sommelier, the drinks are magnificent! We were celebrating our 11th yr anniversary, the staff provided complementary drinks (antique prosecco). I'm not a prosecco girl but after that experience, I am. You won't be disappointed this place is a gem.
What can i say, there is nothing there that is less then fabulous!!! Another delicious meal!
We made a reservation. The restaurant called to confirm that day around noon. We get to the restaurant and are seated. We gave our name and stated we had a reservation. 30 minutes later the restaurant called my cell phone asking where we were! I said seated in the restaurant. They did not apologise until I walked up front to talk with them. On the positive side wine flights were 3 ounce pours of 3 wines and the prime rib was excellent. Our server was top notch.
Great experience all around
The online menu was outdated. I chose this restaurant specifically for the menu that’s was advertised on open table. The high top stools are very uncomfortable.
Another amazing meal and service. Was able to get wine recommendations from the owner who took the time to explain how the wines we ordered would compliment our entrees. Half price Wednesday allows you to try some premium wines at an attractive price point. This restaurant never disappoints, top shelf!
The service was prompt and attentive, the cocktails were all delicious, and every menu item we ordered came out excellent. Absolutely recommend this restaurant, and you can't go wrong by choosing anything on the menu.
It was our anniversary dinner and we enjoyed ourselves with the lobster chowder and grilled octopus,
We went for a business lunch and the food and service was excellent.
Went for brunch for the first time. Thoroughly enjoyed the Chesapeake Benedict! Thought our server was attentive to our table.
Wine list was excellent. My wife had filet which was great. I had cod that was served lukewarm. Service was just ok. Hear great things about this restaurant - so I was disappointed. I have had much better dining experiences next door at Firestone.
We come each year for our anniversary (tenth time?) and it has always been wonderful.
We enjoyed a lovely Saturday afternoon sitting outside and eating lunch at the Tasting Room recently. The food was delicious - the three of us shared 3 appetizers, tried the wonderful craft cocktails, and shared a couple of salads. The waiter was attentive, careful, efficient, and great. It was such a nice time, and as usual, we had a great time dining at The Tasting Room.
As always, a wonderful meal. Excellent food, great service. Couldn't ask for more.
Food was outstanding as always- great fried tomatoes!
There were no specials, the menu had more than enough on it. Food was fantastic: Berkshire pork chop with a side of potatoes au gratin, veal ossobuco with a side of lobster whipped potatoes, 2 side salads (Caesar), and a bottle of Pinot noir.
Ambiance was superb. Service very attentive and courteous.
My wife and I celebrated our 17 year anniversary at The Tasting Room on recommendation from friends. Boy did they hit it out the park! Great location! Great ambiance! Great food! Gave us complimentary glasses of champagne...5 star all the way! My wife is an awesome cook so she knows her food. She was impressed. Will definitely visit again.
This restaurant was a home run. Steak, crabcakes and Short rib Bolognese were delicious. Great wine list. Dinner comes with a salad too. Service was great too, nice pace.
The Tasting Room is our place to go for our anniversary and it never disappoints. Food was amazing, and I love my blood orange martinis.
Such a great experience , everything was perfect. And For a Monday.. it was just what we needed .
The food was excellent and our server, Marnie, was fantastic!!
3rd time’s the charm - It was our best experience there! Happy to see and hear some of the old Volt staff now work here, and the restaurant seems to be all the better for it! Stan is super accommodating, responsive, knowledgeable, and is so patient with his customers! The entire staff and our waitress were professionally friendly. We couldn’t stop eating the bread, it was so fresh! The Filet was fantastically delicious! The house made noodle was perfect! Must admit, both dishes were slightly on the saltier side; but nonetheless very yummy! The drinks were delicious and they took care of the one that didn’t sit well. I can’t wait to try timer mocktails one day! Thank you for the wonderful experience, and loved the birthday sorbet!
Amazing food. Fancy cocktails. Beautiful space and a helpful, friendly staff!
Currently the best service I've experienced in Frederick. The food has always been very good. The sauce with the mushroom ravioli was incredible! With there'd been more lobster in the omelet but the Lobster chowder made up for it. Poached eggs with crab was spectacular. Good desserts and Friendly wine list, too!
Such a great experience! The atmosphere at the tasting room is so relaxing. The service, food, and drinks are great! The lobster chowder is a must have!
Service and food are always outstanding
Food, beverages and service were all outstanding.
Always a great meal and service here! We had the prime rib eye and rack of lamb, both were exceptional
TR is consistently 1 of my top 3 favorite restaurants in all of downtown. Great food, great drinks and great service. I don't think I ever even had to pour my own wine from the bottle we had at the table. Our server, passing servers and even the owner stopped by to do so for us. Just always top-notch, all around.
Always a treat to dine at The Tasting Room! Great food + great service = great time! Thank you again for an excellent dining experience!
