Excellent food

Food is excellent. The lobster ravioli is to for for. Very small place so it is quaint. Wine selection is good. A little pricey on some items in my opinion but others are comparable to others in the area

I found It's about Thyme while showing at Commonwealth park years ago. I had no clue what to expect as I was unfamiliar with Culpeper. I cant even put into words how I felt after my first dining experience at Thyme. Lets just say I ended up moving to Culpeper less than 6 months later and still eat here on... More

First and foremost our meals looked and tasted wonderful. Veal Chop, Prime Rib and Filet all were cooked to perfection! The portion size was large. I was okay with the $38 prices. The restaurant was very cozy and comfortable. We ordered appetizers which again were excellent (Duck pate & pork belly). What I didn't care for was the constant asking... More

When it comes to a great dining experience it's more than just about the food. You'll find five star food here, that's for sure, but what impresses me the most is the total overall experience. From the moment you're greeted at the front door to the time your empty coffee cup is removed from the table, everything is executed perfectly.... More

The food is always well presented with large servings perfectly cooked and within budget. The service is excellent, but the noise level precludes romance or intimate conversation.

We met for a ladies night dinner and the bread was delicious- service was ok - the food was priced a bit out of my budget - even for a nice restaurant - what I ordered - pasta - I didn't really care for.

We ate lunch here since it was much cheaper than dinner. The service was great. They were very busy so obviously they have a good reputation. The server told me they are always busy. I had the puff pastry with ham and white cheddar with white cheddar sauce and a house salad. My husband had roast pork with scalloped potatoes... More

Downtown Culpeper is a hidden jewel of Virginia. The town is a great place to walk around, visit the shops and the restaurants. We celebrated out 5th wedding anniversary at It’s About Thyme. What an amazing restaurant, based largely on a French Theme. The staff went out of their way to make our experience. Visit the website and you will... More

Two friends in Richmond recommended this restaurant when I was going to be in Culpeper to visit a friend, and she also recommended it. I enjoyed the food--I had salad with grilled tuna; she had hamburger; we got a side of au gratin potatoes that she adored but didn't find on the menu, they were happy to oblige; iced tea... More

My wife and I stopped in after visiting Montpelier. The spot is located in old Culpepper, street parking out front. Inside decorations include murals on all walls, tin ceiling, quaintly worn tabletops. We read that it was a family run place, and some of the wait staff resemble the proprietor, so it may be true. Service is absolutely wonderful, with... More
