The Tasting Room is my favorite restaurant and has been our go-to place for date nights. However, our last visit was less than spectacular, especially considering the price. The salmon in my organic salmon entree with pea puree and heirloom carrots was average at best and quite salty, although the carrots were buttery and flavorful and definitely the best part... More

I've not been a fan of the Tasting Room's food or dining experience for years. My wife loves it. She also loves beef which I don't eat at all. The steaks at the Tasting Room are "over the top" according to her and everyone else. So if that's your choice, this is the place - perhaps the best in Frederick.... More

We went for the crab and The Tasting Room delivered. T/R Crab Dip for appetizers and T/R Crab cakes for dinner. Delectable! The waiter advised that having the lobster bisque might be too much (and we're big guys), and he was right. I'm sorry we couldn't handle it however. Next time. We did manage desert, the praline something, served in... More

We were seated immediately but it took some time for the server to arrive. Following this hiccup the service was excellent and the filet mignon as good as ever. The cheese plate is always a treat and did not disappoint. I must say, I missed the white table coverings and this seemed to add to the noise in the dining... More

Have wanted to try the Tasting Room for many years. Came with friends on a Saturday night, making reservation well in advance. We tried three different appetizers and four different fish entrees- Halibut, Tuna, Scallops and Crabcakes. All were excellent. Was disappointed with one of the wines on the flight and it was replaced immediately. We were lucky to be... More

We hoped to try most of the restaurants along market but only ended up trying three. This was the best meal we enjoyed on our trip. This was a Tuesday night so it was not too busy and we literally walked in and we seated in five minutes. My date and I selected a nice Rhone wine and had seafood... More

It's been a few years since our last visit to TR. This was our first time for lunch. I would have liked to see more lunch type options on the menu rather than smaller portions of dinner plates. The service was friendly but terribly slow even though there were only a few tables to be served. It took 30 minutes... More

The staff was courteous, the service was great and the attention received was excellent. the food was impeccable, delicious, and utterly amazing. Four different dishes and each was incredible in its own right. Even the crab dip, which can be iffy at best at most paces was the best crab dip I have ever had.

We brought relatives up from Bethesda and they are used to fine restaurants. We all felt it was a great meal. Filets were cooked superbly. Service was terrific
