Perfect neighborhood spot to get a glass of wine and create your own charcuterie and cheese board, with GREAT cheeses to choose from. They also offer seasonal fare like a "grown up" grilled cheese with tomato soup in the fall. I also build great gift baskets from their crackers, honeys, sausages, pate, cheese boards, and many other munchies.

I'm not the type to sit for cheese and wine (and other associated light fare) but am impressed that Cheesetique is able to provide such services in conjunction with their excellent spread that can be purchased for take out. When I've visited to purchase cheese as gifts for aficionados, their staff has always provided great advice. The only reason I... More

Best for lunch or a light supper. Right in the heart of Del Ray with delicious cheese and wine choices. Let the wait staff help you decide. Very knowledgeable.

I love both locations of this place in Arlington and Alexandria. The sandwiches are just amazingly melty and the Mac and cheeses are the star of this place. I also love that I can shop after lunch or dinner. A must try for anyone in the area.

I spontaneously dropped in to pick up a picnic dinner and a bottle of wine to surprise my sweetheart and I was so happy I did! The very nice hostess made some menu recommendations and I chose the lobster mac and cheese and a blue cheese grilled cheese sandwich with potato salad. The lobster mac was loaded with succulent lobster... More

We recently enjoyed a pre-theater bite at Cheesetique! Very close proximity to the Signature Theater in Shirlington. We had several cheese options on our plate to share and the waiter was able to make excellent recommendations about wine pairings!

Great menu and wonderful variations of the traditional grilled cheese. They have a great selection of products, wine, cheese, crackers, spreads, olives, etc. to create a gift basket. Wine selection was good and you can purchase a bottle right then to drink with your meal.
