Fantastic food; Terrible Noise

I've eaten here at least five times. The food and the service is excellent; most of the staff have been there for many years and the teamwork shows itself in swift, efficient service that never makes you feel rushed. My only quibble with the service is that if you order a bottle of wine, they... read more

My wife and I went to dinner here last night. Food was one of the best meals ever, with fine service to boot. Loud? Yes. Too loud? No. Just everyone in the place having a good, relaxed time. We will be back - for certain.

A lovely place to have a well executed, well plated, well delivered, table served experience. It is very popular with the local beaujoire and enjoyed also by tourists, and that is fine, BUT the ownership/management sucks the positive energy out of the place. Too many servers appear to be working under an unfortunate regime of pretense. Alas, the leadership sets... More

I went to a business dinner here. The restaurant is very charming and the service was excellent. I had the rotisserie chicken. The bread served before the meal was delicious. The portions are very large. The chicken was just OK. Overall a decent experience in a lovely atmosphere.

Whether for lunch or dinner, the food is superb. I have tried most everything on the menu and it is all delicious. Even better is that the service is fantastic. Your water glass is refilled even before its empty. Dishes are cleared quickly. Meals for everyone are served simultaneously. Location is right in the middle of the shopping district. Go... More

You can't really miss if you choose It's About Thyme. You can cruise in and have a solo meal, take the family out, do a business lunch (it was a bit loud for a real meeting) or entertain your french foreign exchange student's family from Bordeaux and everyone will be satisfied. The food is always excellent, and with enough range... More

Boyfriend and I took his grandmother last September and were incredibly impressed: stellar, friendly service and outstanding food. Last night, we went together for impromptu date night and wondered what happened? Man who seated us pushed to take our drink order right away...I didn't even have my coat off yet! Cosmo I ordered tasted like straight, cheap alcohol; I barely... More

Great dining experience. You will not be disappointed. Service is on point and daily specials can be remarkable. A definite higher end restaurant in Culpeper, yet comfortable and laid-back.

At It's About Thyme, it is all about the food. The menu is fantastic and each dish is carefully crafted from the freshest ingredients. Soups, puff pastry, fresh fish and daily specials along with rich favorites like the Open Faced Ham Sandwich served with an elegant side salad, the food is simply to die for. Warm fresh baked bread with... More

We had talked about eating here for a while and today we finally made it. The food was very good but the service caused us to pause. The manager, John, made it right. The soups were very good and the pork roast was delicious.
