The moment we stepped in the smell of cheese took us back to Europe. The display of cheeses and cold meats was beautiful, and they even had Crème Fraîche for sale! Overall a good assortment of specialty cheese to choose from. Upon arriving we asked the hostess for a table. We kindly waited by the bar and wete later sat... More

I live near Cheesetique and what I love is that it's great for whatever you need. A drop by meal for $10 with tomato soup and gourmet grilled cheese? Check! A stop to pick up some special wine and cheese to take home for an impromptu meal? Check! A night out with charcuterie and cheese board with wine pairings? Check.... More

Found this wonderful cheese shop in Alexandria while out Christmas shopping. We actually went to grab a bite to eat and left with a full stomach and great memories. I ate the steak and cheese and must say is the best I've ever eaten! !! Oh, the flavor was amazing! !! My wife had the macaroni and cheese which is... More

I love this place and they have a hidden favorite wine bar in the back with lite cheese related fare. The staff are friendly and very knowledgeable about cheeses and they always have a great selection. But my favorite part is the back area wine bar.

What a great place for lunch. Can't wait to return for dinner. This cheese and wine shop also boasts a terrific, small restaurant with a bit more formal, but still casual dining room in the rear of the establishment. Friendly and helpful waitstaff. For lunch, don't miss the soups, Lobster Mac and Cheese, and the Southern Chicken Fillet sandwich. The... More

Six girlfriends and I went here on a Wednesday evening, and the place was packed. (All but 3 in the restaurant were women). We left the selection of the cheeses for our cheese board to our server, and what she brought us was great. We all opted for that evening's featured $5/glass wine, and it, too, was great. We all...

This is awesome little place in Del Ray. But! My fav bit is that when they have too little of a cheese left to sell whole, they cut it into bits and sell the tiny bits which are perfect size for snacks. So instead of boring apple...super awesome cheese!

My wife selected this restaurant as she had passed it several times and heard good things about. I noted that it had the # 1 rating of all 643 restaurants in Alexandria and was frankly skeptical. As you enter the establishment it looks like a cheese shop (which it is as well) and it appears there are only a few... More

My husband was the very first customer at Cheesetique's Del Ray store. At that time it was only a cheese, pate, wine, beer etc. specialty shop but has since expanded to a new location and has become a very nice wine and cheese, etc., restaurant. The staff is pleasant and the food terrific.
