Wine & Cheese...what's better?

Always a home run if you are looking for a cozy table and a broad choice of wine and cheese. The grilled sandwich selection is hard to beat. Lobster Mac and cheese? Yes please!

Cheesetique was one of my favorite stores for the years before our move to the Shenandoah Valley to care for an elderly aunt. It used to be the kind of place you would linger a while to discuss what was for dinner and which items to pick for the wrap-up cheese course for a major dinner party. But in our... More

Wow - I am so sorry you had such a chaotic experience on your recent visit. We do our absolute best to staff for volume but sometimes it just doesn't work out as we planned and it can result in longer waits. I assure you that it doesn't have anything to do with our restaurant - it has been in... More

Went out to Del Ray to celebrate anniversary and decided to have a later wine/cheese romantic "dinner". Ordered the cheese and charcuterie platter with a bottle of red. 4 cheeses and 3 meats were fantastic. Bread good, crackers really not a solid addition - stick to the bread. Ask for butter - it's the real deal from France - Echire... More

I recently visited Cheesetique on a Friday night as a double date to celebrate a birthday. I had been to Cheestique once before, and I was very happy to come back. We didn't have reservations and were very surprised to be seated right away. The hostess was very nice and didn't even blink when we said we didn't have reservations.... More

It's a cheese shop turned restaurant and wine bar. Their crazy knowledge of cheese is evident not only in their collection under the cheese counter, but in the restaurant's food. The grilled cheese sandwich is a wondrously grown-up version of your childhood favorite and perfectly paired with grown-up tomato soup. The super friendly staff are happy to help you pair... More
