This has the look of a classic French bistro. The food is good, but for me, I find that the proximity of the tables to the windows and therefore the street, is not ideal for being IN the restaurant. The look of the interior is very handsome and the tables have crisp white clothes on them Again, if you don't... More

When in Frederick we try to make a visit to the Tasting Room. The food is always excellent, and the wait staff is very attentive. Yes the room is open and a bit noisy, however the meal and service by far exceeds the sound. Fun place to join friends.

The lamb burger and fish and chips were prepared properly. The alcohol free cocktail of the day was excellent. A bit pricy but very fast and excellent service.

We went on a Sunday night and the restaurant was less than half full. Despite that, it was very noisy. Not good for quiet conversation. But the food was great and the waiter's recommendations excellent. My husband had the duck main course and didn't even give me a bite, it was that good. I had the seared ahi tuna, also... More

Four of us made a return trip to the Tasting Room after a 5 year absence, not knowing what to expect but hoping to find the same wonderful restaurant we remembered. We were not disappointed. A true test of a restaurant is often when things don't go perfectly. We had such a test the night we were there. While all... More

During our visit to friends in Frederick, we had the pleasure of having dinner at TR. We arrived a little early and made our way to the bar - a little crowded but the staff was fast and friendly. Once our table was ready we were seated. Our friends told us that TR was famous for their Filet Mignon -... More

I have been hearing about how wonderful The Tasting Room is from friends, so when my husband asked where I wanted to go for my birthday dinner, I suggested it. It was the BEST decision I could have made! We made reservations, since it was a Saturday night, and we arrived on time at 6:30 -- we wondered if we... More

This is a quaint restaurant in the heart of downtown Frederick. The waitress was very pleasant. The starters were delicious. We had foi gras and the bacon. Lordy that bacon was delicious! For meals we had the scallops, duck, and rack of lamb. All were very good but the lamb was the best. The spices and flavor was superb. The... More

Enjoyed a wonderful lunch. Very good cauliflower soup and tasty house salad. The crispy chicken sandwich was delicious as were the salmon cakes. The chocolate sorbet was yummy...better than the mango ice cream. We will be back.

I have been to this restaurant several times. Each time, I was fortunate to be in the private room in the back. The staff is very friendly and knowledgable. The food selection is good, and the food has always been fresh, hot, and tasted great. This restaurant does not disappoint!
