La Fromagerie's Bistro is the perfect place to enjoy a cheese and meat plate with a glass of wine in a relaxed, intimate atmosphere. Owner and Chef Sebastien Tavel bases his elegant, light fare menu around fresh seasonal food available from local farmers, particularly the heirloom and forageable produce that help support the biodiversity of our area.

Great Place to relax and enjoy conversation.

Did not have a formal meal here but stopped in mid afternoon to relax, enjoy some great wine and conversation. They offer excellent cheese and meat selections and great wine flights for you to sample multiple vintages. Prices are appropriate and the staff is quite helpful with suggestions.

My girlfriend and I went here for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. Since we are both cheese fans, we knew we were at the right spot. It's a very cozy place with a welcoming atmosphere. Our waiter was VERY knowledgeable of the vast cheese menu and took his time to explain EVERY cheese! I was highly impressed by that. We... More

Great place for wine, cheese & meat pairings, wine flights, or a nice glass of vino. Excellent wine and cheese selections. Highly recommend the "Hummingbird" soft cheese! So many mouth-watering choices...would've liked to try the Aged Gouda or Bleu Mont Cheddar and the Sopressata salami. All plates around me seemed to have generous portions of delectable delights. Also highly recommend... More

As the name implies, they are a quaint wine and cheese bar with French influence. However, they are much more. As you walk in the door, you are greeted by a good sized selection of wine bottles for sell. Not too expensive, good selection of wine. I was very pleased by the wine by the glass list. It was interesting,... More

We enjoyed an engaging and delicious dinner at La Fromagerie last weekend. Friends suggested that we go and, frankly, my expectations were not high. I was wrong! We were greeted by friendly and knowledgeable wait staff and welcomed with champagne as part of a Valentine's Day special. It was followed by oysters on the half shell and, then, a wonderful...

Popped in out of the rain to enjoy a lovely treat. Staff recommendation of the melted pimento small plate did not disappoint, just enough of a kick to keep it interesting. Topped it off with their soup. Nice vibe in a clean space.

We live locally in Alexandria and visit this place at least twice a month. The menu changes seasonally and everything is fresh, beautifully prepared and top quality. It tends to be a smaller menu--which we love because you can always try what's new! Spectacular wine and cheese list. The service is warm and friendly. And they know their wine and... More
