The Tasting Room
The food, lobster chowder, crab cakes, octopus, was outstanding. Cocktails were perfection, and the service excellent. We are never disappointed here.
Loved celebrating our anniversary at The Tasting Room. Fantastic food, awesome service, romantic ambience and very safe dining experience with COVID. Always a 5 star experience.
Really enjoyed the atmosphere and the bartender was very knowledgeable.
The service, drinks and food were all amazing. Blew away all expectations
Food and service were on point.
Our food was excellent as always, but the service by the waitress was not stellar, the rest of the wait staff otherwise was exceptional. When you commit to the expense of a upscale restaurant it should not matter where you sit, but the only reservation available was at the high tables. I will not do that again as the constant back and forth of carry out deliveries was a detriment to our dining experience. Still our go to for special diners though!
Love it here as always ! Best drinks and happy hour is a steal.
Had a wonderful dinner. Jeff did a great job with service. Perfect spot to celebrate the holidays for a nice but not overly fancy dinner. Great wine selections and cocktails too!
Wonderful food and service. My wife and I drive from Bethesda to Frederick every now and then just to come to the Tasting Room.
Amazing server impeccable service along with the food drink menu for the holidays was very unique and all over incredible experience as always especially during the pandemic felt safe and had an incredible meal
First time dining here since ownership change but found the menu, service and food to still be outstanding as it was in the past!
Wonderful food and service!
Went for brunch. Drove all the way from DC as a one day trip. Still a good place.
Always the best! Everything was perfect.
AMAZING FOOD AND STAFF! I would definitely be back to try the rest of the menu!
Everything we ate was delicious but one of us left a bit hungry. Service was adequate but nothing special. The gin and juice cocktail wasn’t great either.
awesome food and great service. the food came out fast and was outstanding
Braised rib, scallops, rockfish all fantastic. Creme brulee awesome, butter cake slightly dry but flavor still spot on. Server seemed new, but we managed just fine. Handle gluten free needs with ease for our celiac. Cocktails average, but come here for the food. Really great restaurant.
Top-rank food, top-rank service
Great food and service. It’s our third time there in 6 months. Only wish is that the menu would change
The food and service were both exceptional. When the new owner took over I felt like the service and food were a bit shaky but we were also in the thick of covid. We haven’t been in a few months and I can say that both the food and service are back up to the standard they were at before with the previous owner. Tasting room is one of the best restaurants in frederick!
Sitting at the high table, watching the people of Frederick go by, was such a treat. The food was wonderful, as always. But don't miss the Rare Manhattan as an opening of the meal. And you must have the Molten Lemon Cake. It is to die for. My husband is not a dessert fan, and he always orders it.
For special occasions - perfect place - great food/wine and great service
Had another great meal, desert and cocktails at TR. Jason chose some good wine to go with the food. He's talented at this; and this wasn't the first time.
The food and waitress were excellent but on my reservation I indicated that it was my girlfriend's birthday and was surprised that it was not even acknowledged. I even ordered dessert in hopes that it would receive some recognition but no.
Great cocktails and the food, spare rib and rockfish dinners were delicious. Very nice, fresh salads and the Panko shrimp app was perfect. Our waiter, Jeff was terrific. Outstanding meal and service.
Always great food, great service, and great time. Thanks!
Menu had lots of choices but we had was wonderful.
Megan was a great server. Food and Wine was fantastic. Will definitely be back.
Great service, great food, the restaurant itself is elegant but has some modern look. Waitresses were attentive but not overbearing. The food, quality and portions were perfect. Not a trough of food, but not small bites.
Our favorite restaurant in Frederick. The scallops were delicious. The service was wonderful too.
The food and service was phenomenal! My husband and I ordered something from each section of the menu and ordered the wine the bold red and fruity red flights. Our server was able to answer any question that we had regarding food and wine. We will definitely be going back someday soon!
Excellent filet mignon and scalloped potatoes. The Tasting Room is one of our favorites.
An excellent choice in Frederick. Lots of strict observation of social distancing. Fried green tomatoes, Caesar salad, scallops , Lobster pasta amazing.
Scallops a wonderful fall dish. Fried green tomatoes amazing and I used to live in NOLA!!
Great atmosphere . For 2, I would recommend the high tops with a view outside located in the bar.
Excellent atmosphere and great food/drink. Will be eating here again for sure.
Wonderful experience all around. Are waiter was terrific. From the minute we walked in until we left a certifiable 10 out of 10 the experience.
Never disappointed for a lovely dinner out. We celebrated my husbands birthday. Everything was perfect!
The food was great. Everything we had was delicious
*Crab Dip is creamy and perfectly seasoned.
*Braised Octopus is just out of this world amazing! The texture was a pleasant surprise along with the sauce and couscous mix.
*Roasted Duck with collards, celeriac puree and pickled shallots was out of this world. The only thing about this dish I was not happy about was the serving size of the duck confit. We felt as though the portion could have been more.
*Filet Mignon served with au gratin along with sauce béarnaise. We thoroughly enjoyed this meal. The only issue with this was that I asked for medium well and got a well done Filet Mignon.
We also enjoyed some Passion Apple cocktails, I am not sure If I have the name of this correct but this drink is just perfect. The cocktail has a nice balance of sweet and sour with a beautiful edible apple crisp clipped on the side of the drink. I had 2 myself lol. We will be back again.
