    Casa Carmen produces terrific wines, right here in Kent County MD! And the small plates are the best - very full of flavor and curated ingredients.

    This is a gem of a place with fantastic wine by the glass or bottle and a small menu of nibbles to pair them with. My partner and I shared a lovely bottle of Gruner Veltliner and had cheese and meat selections, boquerones and pickled veggie skewers. Our server was very pleasant. The cozy atmosphere can’t be beat. It appears they took away the outdoor seating I enjoyed last year and only have a few tables out on the front porch.

    As a recent transplant to the area I am thrilled to have this gem in Chestertown. My husband and I were transported back to Spain for those couple of hours. Perfect spot in the alley table was friendly but also intimate. Delicious and unique takes on Latin food.

    We had a really good time and the food and wine were all delicious. My only problem was with the service. The service was slow and I got my octopus way ahead of everyone else. I was totally finished plus more time before everyone else got their food. Also had to wait for seconds on wine. I understand that it seemed you were short handed. We would definitely try again.

    Such a cute little place. Delicious wine, not drenched in sugar like a lot of wineries. Employees were friendly and informative about wines and the town. Food was so fresh and delicious. I can't say enough good thing about it. We can't wait to go back in March. It's a definite must see. Make a reservation. Note that it's a tasting room, not a winery but it was just adorable and we loved it!

    Loved the wine and atmosphere. Fare is very light so it is not really a "dinner" experience. It was enough for us, but may not be for all diners. Otherwise there are no complaints! We had a great time. Staff was knowledgeable of the wines.

    We LOVED both the food and wine here. There wasn't a single thing we ordered that we didn't like - and we pretty much ordered everything on the menu. My wife and I were pleasantly surprised with this place and the owners are very friendly. If you like this sort of cuisine I would recommend this place over anywhere else in Chestertown. Thanks for a great experience, we'll be back when we're in town!

    We started with roasted olives and garlic, followed by a 5 choice board, paired with a Gruner Vetliner that may have been the ideal companion. We followed with two tins, the smoked trout and calamari, with (oops, a bottle) of their Rose. Brilliant. Sara was a delightful host with a great sense of timing. It was a gentle and comfortable re-entry into the world of dining indoors!
