The Wine Kitchen on the Creek Ratings and Reviews
Took a chance and followed the recommendation from reviews on-line. First visit Frederick, just to have dinner at The Wine Kitchen. It lived up to the excellent reviews. And the location was quite charming. Beautifully renovated area of town with a beautiful promenade along the creek thru the center of town.
Staff very friendly and accommodating, but could use a bit more education on the daily menu items. A dedicated bartender would help improve the service. Our waitress also made the drinks which meant that when her area of tables got busy, the drink orders took a while to fill (we sat in the bar area).
But the food was stellar and made up for the few imperfections. One of the best meals we have ever had. Will definitely be back.
We were late for our afternoon reservation and seriously pushing the lunch cutoff. The staff was generous to even seat us and they were kind and professional about it. They most certainly could have reasonably turned us away. I am so glad they were will to seat us. We had a lovely birthday celebration lunch. The entire experience was very positive.
unique dishes, loved the macaroni and cheese! Had a smoked taste to it. The halibut dish was also nice. We didn't try the wines since we don't drink alcohol, but they do have an extensive wine list and they tell you which wines pair with their specific dish. We will difinitely comeback to try the other dishes.
First the server was awesome. The appetizers (mussels and the cheesesteak fries) were good. The cheesesteak fries are a fraction as large as thy look on the website, but are still a fair value. The only negative is that the two steaks and one hamburger that were ordered were significantly overcooked. The steaks were quite expensive , so was a disappointment.
We dined at the Wine Kitchen on Mother's Day and the food and service were excellent! Highly recommend the pork belly app, short ribs, and tiramisu! Everyone enjoyed their meal and there were no complaints! It was also a great spot for pics along the creek afterwards😊
We dine here often and want to commend the restaurant for consistent good quality food and service. If anything goes wrong, which it rarely does, they do everything in their power to make it right. I'm impressed with how they handle the challenges of running a local small business and appreciate the great food and service they add to Frederick's restaurant scene. It's a very fun place and if you luck out with an outside table by the creek on a pretty day you will be charmed [and well fed]/
Best restaurant in Frederick! LOVE their dinner burger - everyone should have this burger.
You can't go wrong with any of their fresh, inventive, delicious plates. Amazing seafood, great vegetarian options, fantastic cocktails and the service is the best you can get!
I've been to the Wine Kitchen before and loved it. I was a bit disappointed this time because while the food was delicious as always, the wine service was incredibly slow. Normally, we like to do the wine flights and tastes of a lot of different wines but this time it seemed to take forever for the bar to fill our orders. For a place called the Wine Kitchen, it was amazing how long my wine glass was empty.
We arrived at 5:30 for our reservation, seated right away, ordered drinks and appetizers. We received our drinks at a good time along with our starter. Everything was delicious, the mule drink came out in a non mule cup which was strange. The wine flights are good and good price ranges. We ordered our main course but it took about an hour to get drinks/dinner, and had to leave to pick up our son so didnt really enjoy dinner :(. This was disappointing. Our waiter could sense we waited awhile and took off the last two drinks off our bill which made up for the slow service. All in all it was yummy and I will come back but probably sit at the bar.
We were seated at a table for two which was set in a busy location where servers were traveling past to the outdoor dining area. It was rather distracting. Another table near a window out of the way stayed empty for most of the evening. The special chicken dish was outstanding. We ordered smoked nuts with our drinks and they were a perfect complement with a smokey roasted flavor. The dessert with the flourless chocolate cake and banana ice cream was creamy and rich. A delicious end to a satisfying meal.
We were really looking forward to a nice anniversary dinner. We were crammed into a tiny table with barely enough room to get in. It was so loud we had to yell to hear each other. There was no privacy. Felt like I was dining with 4 total strangers. I even had requested a quiet table. Food was ok. Too bad it seemed like it was a great location!
Met my Brother in Law and wife for early drinks and appetizers. got a table outside on a brilliant, sunny day. Small plates were great for sharing along with wine flights. Hostess sat us promptly and our waiter was fun and knew his stuff. Great location for sitting along the creek, people watch and sharing a meal. Fills up outside so go early or be prepared to wait. Indoor bar was happening also so waiting isnt bad.
Everything it was hyped to be. Wine selection was great and especially like the flights selections we did sharing at the table to help confirm the glass we wanted with dinner. Our server, Tom was outstanding and made very good suggestions. Would recommend for any occasion.
Wonderful restaurant in downtown Frederick along Carroll Creek. Outside patio dining in warmer weather . Great addition to the area serving high quality , wonderfully prepared food . Excellent service provided by the wait staff . Highly recommend dining there !
The food and experience was really good! We would definitely return. There were a couple issues that kept this from being a top notch experience. First, my wife ordered the trout but was given salmon instead. Everything else about the dish was as described in the menu, so not sure what happened there. We should have asked but didn't. Second, I ordered my steak cooked medium but it came cooked more than that. It was definitely more like well done. Fortunately it still tasted delicious, so I just let it be.
Great wine selections and a wide ranging menu of very well prepared foods. The wine flights are a fun option. The staff is appropriately attentive and helpful in guiding you as to food or wine, if you need that. This is one of Frederick 's several premium dining experiences
