This downtown Frederick icon is one of our favorites! We have been to the Tasting Room many times over the years, and in spite of changing ownership a few years ago, it has maintained its high standards of excellent menu choices, beautifully presented and delicious food, and excellent service. We enjoy going here for long, romantic dinners. Even when it is busy, the ambiance is soft and relaxing. They always have great bar drinks, and a good selection of liquors, as well as a great wine list. Be sure to try their amazing and decadent lobster bisque (my favorite anywhere!), and their lobster mashed potatoes. Also, their jumbo lump crab cakes are probably the best that you will ever eat in Maryland or anywhere else. We also enjoy just stopping off here for lunch, or for a few drinks and snacks at the bar. It is a really popular place, for good reason, so be sure to make a reservation, if you want to be seated at a table. Bar seating is open, but it stays pretty busy, so later in the evening or on weekends, you may have to wait a bit. Be sure to check this off your list if you visit Frederick, or try it out a few times when you are in the downtown area. You won’t be disappointed!!
Visited The Tasting Room for the first time last night and had an amazing experience. For a Tuesday it was busy, so I would definitely recommend making a reservation. The service was wonderful from start to finish. The drink menu is extensive, which includes some creative and quite delicious options - highly recommend "Green with Envy" and the "Black Martini." The dinner menu is slightly limited, but still offers something for every palate. The food is thoughtfully prepared and artistically plated with fresh and exciting ingredients. The portions are on the smaller side which leaves plenty of room to make it to dessert - do yourself a flavor and stick around for tiramisu or the rhubarb cheesecake! The only slight downfall was the restaurant is very loud making it difficult to hold a conversation, i might recommend outdoor seating if this would be a problem for you. Will definitely be coming back for more.
Great ambience and service. You should dress up for the ocasion but it is not mandatory. Paul was our Server today and he did a great job. The food is fantastic and really original. Good fine dining place. There is a parking lot to park your car in less that a block away and also many street parking spots. Easy to park I mean.
The food was great and the waiter was so sweet. The bar tender was also so sweet. The experience overall was a great one. I had the lobster bisque and the lobster omelette. I went for brunch. It is a little pricey, but I promise it is worth it. Even the salad was great.
Very welcoming atmosphere. Food was excellent. I'm from Cleveland and we stop for lunch amazing. The waitress greeters everyone so hospitable. Made sure food was hot drinks always on tap.
