“Rude Service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013 via mobile

Went to buy some cheese. A lady tried to push wine with the purchase as if we didnt how it worked. After we purchased the cheese we sat in the front of the place designated for their customers when a guy came out in a stern voice during our last remaining bite of cheese and said that these tables were not for "bulk cheese eaters". We purchased a half pound of Manchego for three persons and no one was sat at any of the tables. He embarrassed me in front of my out of town family members. Would it really have mattered to have let us finish a few bites of cheese rather than make a scene for us to leave while we were consuming our last bite?

I'm sorry, we should have been more specific, bulk cheese is to only to go. To go does not mean to go to a table and eat it. We are a restaurant and tables are reserved for table service. I thought it was pretty clear, if there was some confusion, I apologize.

“Great wine & cheese”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

Love the wine & cheese here, nice owners, very friendly, great service. Seats do fill out quickly, so get there early if you can. Lots of foodies come here to hang out to enjoy great wine and cheese. Reasonable prices for Las Olas blvd.

“Take the cheese tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

this Las olas gem is small but well worth it. I've tried the croque Monsieur grilled sandwich with raclette cheese and ham and the sandwich had the perfect proportion of cheese without being soggy. They offer a set menu of sandwiches and salads but you can also compose your own. service is prompt especially when the owner is around as he is meticulous about everything. Finally a fort Lauderdale place with young servers who are not bimbos! They also have a good selection of wines to choose from. the only minus is the accompanying salad with the sandwiches can at times have mushy lettuce.

“Enjoyed wine and cheese pairing class”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Went to their wine and cheese pairing class at 7:30 pm. Owners were knowledgeable about both. 14 people sat at a bar while owners presented 6 cheeses and 4 wines and explained how important it was to eat the cheese and wine together to enhance the flavors of both. They were right. It really made a difference in how you could enjoy both. Did not stay and eat afterward but totally enjoyed the class. Learned what I came for. Used a coupon which cut $45 price to BOGO. It was worth it.

“Excellent service and wonderful food - "Cheese Heaven"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

After seeing many great reviews on tripadvisor, we decided to visit during a recent trip to Fort Lauderdale. Tiffany provided us with excellent service and great advice on the choices we were making re. pairing wine and cheese together. Of course we had to try the famous ultimate grilled cheese sandwich, which did not disappoint.

We only wish we lived closer as Cheese Culture would definitely be a regular haunt, but rest assured, we will visit again next time we're passing through town.
