We've been with friends and always enjoy it. It's a great atmosphere, wonderful wine, and great food. It's quaint and there is a huge dining room past the main front room. You can enjoy a long time catching up with friends, or a quick drink before dinner.

So glad we found this place. The food was amazing! Worth fighting for parking spots for. Beautiful setting for a date night or night out with friends. The fried macaroni was out of this world. And there is a sandwich (cant remember the name) with bananas and it is a must try! When back in the area we will definitely... More

I have been to Cheesetique 3 times in the past 3 months. I would go more if I lived closer. I go when I am visiting a friend in Del Ray, and I have taken my friends who came in from out of state, they loved it! I am a big fan of the board. What is a 'board'? It... More

Have enjoyed Cheesetique since before the restaurant opened; good source for cheese trays for parties! But lunch is excellent. Fine choices, from grilled cheese to mac 'n cheese and wines to accompany.

I've passed this restaurant in Del Ray many times. Always thought it was just the sidewalk tables and a cheese shop. A friend wanted to go there for her birthday so I was introduced to the large back room. Nice room with lots of wine bottles lining the walls, white table clothes and black napkins. The service was excellent. I... More

We really like Cheestique or as our 4.5 year old daughter refers to it, "the grilled cheese restaurant." The grilled cheese options are great, and kid-friendly. We also enjoy the cheese boards. Server on our most recent visit was very thoughtful in terms of bringing out kids' meals first. Chocolate chips at the end are a nice touch.

Cheese shop with restaurant seating in back and a few seats on the sidewalk. I had the Billy Goat Mac. It was tasty but the chicken was a bit dry.

This was my 3rd time to eat here. Anytime I'm in town visiting my friend, we have to have a stop here. This time I had a grown up grilled cheese with mushrooms and some tomato soup. Amazing. Also the wine selection can't be beat! You won't regret eating here.

It is a cafe - that specializes in cheeses and salami - and will make small essentially taster plates and sell bottled drinks ... and there's coffee next door. So let's talk about what Cheestique IS - a wonderful experience for the Cheese-o-phile in you ... high turnover guarantees a quality product. You will find cheeses here you won't easily... More

Being from Wisconsin, my kids doubted my choice of a restaurant having a cheesy name. Hah! I showed them as it was fabulous. Service excellent! Wine pairings on menu welcomed. My teen said the flavors were "strong and refined." This meal was flawless and we would have taken cheese home if it was later in our travels. Respect that they... More
