Cosy, animated atmosphere, good service

Perfect place to get a light, delicious meal that includes cheese in the ingredients - nice selection of wines to accompany your choice of dishes and friendly service. Just a few tables outside at this location but if you can get one on a beautiful day, the experience is even better.

Great cheeses, of course, nice wines and a lovely atmosphere makes Cheesetique a go-to place for a light-isn meal. The grilled pimento cheese sandwich is one of the greatest sandwiches you'll ever have. A nice surprise because it has a lovely pepper kick that makes it special. The meats and cheese boards cannot be beat. The wine selection is broad... More

Friendly, wonderful restaurant with great food and cheese. We had a group of 10 women and no reservation and they cleared a display area to make room for all of us

Cheesetique - when it first opened it was really great - they have taken a couple of items off the menu (quiche was one which was very disappointing) the dining experience is nice in the warm weather where you can sit outside, however, the atmosphere in the inside leaves a bit to desire - Great for a nice glass of...

About once every six months since this shop expanded now seven years ago, I've found myself walking in to pick up some cheese, grab a quick bottle of wine or order dinner for take away. Each time I hope for a better experience and for Cheesetique to live up to expectations and the reviews. I want this shop and its... More

I had lunch at Cheesetique in Alexandria at about 1:30 on a Thursday, accompanied by my four year old daughter, who wants to go back often. If our budget and schedule supported it, I would be there weekly. This is a good spot for a parent at home to have a delicious, civilized break midday. The space one can see... More

Found this on Tripadvisor and decided to give it a try on a recent visit to Old Town Alexandria. It was well worth the short detour. The front part of the shop is a cheese and wine market. While we waited, we got to sample some wines at a free in-shop wine tasting. We then were seated at a table... More

I live in the neighborhood and have visited many times. The food is uniformly very good and the wine selection is excellent. Grown up grilled cheese is a standby, charcuterie is always a favorite. Fellas, this is a great place to take a date. Women love it, so you can't go wrong. And if you're single, the odds are definitely... More
