Met a friend and since it was a nice night. Sat outside. The view is ok but nothing special. The served a wonderful baguette that we could not stop tasting. We both had the salmon and it was excellent. The service excellent as well. I would definitely return again.

This is a retail store AND restaurant - best of both worlds. VERY knowledgeable staff to guide you through a purchase of a bottle (or more) of wine to take home! Rotating selection of wines by the glass to keep frequent patrons coming back. Serves lunch and dinner 7 days a week, (reservations necessary for busy nights or you could... More

The Wine House is in a cute little courtyard plaza in the heart of Fairfax City. There is a public parking structure in the building, so parking is easy. The restaurant ambiance is haute industrial: lots of gleaming metal and wood. What I liked least was the seating. It's high bar stools and if you are a short person like... More

We dined at The Wine House on a Monday evening in August and took advantage of the "all-you-can eat" mussels. The restaurant offered three distinct and tasteful options. Each serving was ample and accompanied by a slice of crusty bread perfect for dunking. White wine from Virginia and California complemented our meal. We visit The Wine House several times a... More

My first impression was the stuffy atmosphere of this place. Our server had the personality of a prison guard 20 years form retirement. We had a comfortable table but we were asked to move so he could squeeze one more seat in for another empty table. They are clearly trying to be something they are not, such as, a classy... More

My wife and I come here regularly, alone and with friends. Always very helpful with wine selection and pairings. Food usually very good although the menu is limited. Their wine shop has a nice selection and I frequently stop to ask for wine suggestions when we entertain--their recommendations have always been excellent.

I came here today two other friends. I had a burger and my friends had Quiche Lorraine. The wine we selected was a good but not great Chardonnay. The one we first tasted but rejected was not very good. This place has hard floors and furniture. The service was friendly. I would not rush back here however because there is... More

This was our 3rd visit to the Wine House. Service was so slow, the hostess took our order, admitting that she was unfamiliar with some of the menu. She took note of my wife's allergies, one being to parsley. Another staff member stopped by to confirm that the allergies were noted. My wife ordered rack of lamb because of the... More

Ate here last night (a Monday) for the first time, and had a very nice evening with excellent food! Lovely, personalized service, and the wine was terrific! It wasn't crowded, but by other reviews it looks like later in the week it would be. My challenge -- I don't do well with "high" seats. Also found I fidgeted a lot,... More

My visit to The Wine House was solo, there is a bar area that if it is not crowded you may sit and enjoy your wine. The night I went was "Flight night" where you can taste a regions of the country or vintner's wine selection all for $20.00. You really got to like the wines or want to really... More
