The food & service was excellent! The wine flights and varieties to choose from were also very nice. I was a little disappointed in the portion size of the swordfish entree, but we received a complimentary glass of champagne in recognition of our anniversary which was a nice touch. So, overall I recommend trying The Wine Kitchen!

What a wonderful dinner!
As a former (80s) white glove server, I’m a tough judge. Our server was spot on!
All three entrees were great: duck, yellowtail and short ribs. Wine and cocktail selection is terrific.
We were seated in the bar & felt distanced and safe. Decor is lovely.
We own/operate an AirBnB very close by & will recommend to our guests…

Food was excellent. Was given a sample of a drink because I couldn’t decide what I wanted with dessert. After the sample I immediately ordered a glass. It was delicious!

Such a wonderful place to spend with your loved one. We went for our 5 yr anniversary and started during happy hour and ended with dinner. Throughout the whole evening we felt pampered when needed, but also given space to enjoy the atmosphere and each other. The wine selection was exactly what we needed and the yellowfin tuna was amazing!

Great and innovative food. Had the venison tri-tip which was excellent.

Started with a charcuterie. The pate made of smoked celery was exceptional. Never thought a vegetarian alternative could taste so good.

Fresh oysters, sweet and briny with the right amount of mignonette. Diner for 2 - stuffed potatoes, ribs, creamed spinach - all delicious and presented well. Of course the drinks and wine accented the food.

Lovely atmosphere sitting by the Carroll Creek, the service provided by Jayden was attentive and friendly -- in a word, perfect. The tuna was with black rice was delicious as was the Wagyu burger. Finished the meal with salted brownie dessert, which had interesting pudding-like texture and nice chocolate taste.

We loved our dinner at The Wine Kitchen on the Creek. Although we were nervous to eat inside due to COVID, we were seated in a room with a few tables that were spread out and we were comfortable. The service was timely and friendly. We enjoyed our wine and food. They brought unique peppered bread to our table for starters which my husband loved as he is a pepper fanatic! We had some fried green tomatoes which were fine as well. I ordered the butternut "mignon"- it was terrific -what a unique item. My husband had the Wagyu beef burger and said it was the best burger he's had in a while. We wrapped up our meal with the trash cookie- delicious!

Fried green tomatoes appetizer and sauce that came with was very good. 4 big slices that although breaded and fried, were not too heavy. I had the 24hr braised short rib and my better half the filet w/ finished with gorgonzola butter for dinner. My wife is not a huge mashed potato fan but she raved about the Wine Kitchen version. Staff was very sweet and gave us a nice card and coupon for future visit as they knew we were celebrating our anniversary.

My husband and I love eating here. The food is always delicious and the cocktails are also inventive and taste great. Brunch, lunch, or dinner The Wine Kitchen always delivers. I think the staff and ambience really set this place apart from other great places in Frederick. Everyone is always very helpful and friendly and the location is beautiful. It's a particular treat whenever we're able to dine outside. Looking forward to many more wonderful meals here!
