It's About Thyme is a charming restaurant with a delicious menu. The pricing ranges from $15-$50/meal, and most meals are less than $25. The atmosphere is charming and the food was outstanding. We told our waitress to surprise us with a wine selection and it was on point. Definitely recommend.

From the time you walk in until you leave, John and his staff are very attentive to your needs. The staff is able to assist with great wine pairings for your dinner as well as a full service bar. Steaks are fresh and tender, seasoned ideally. Vegetables and salads are fresh. Homemade breads await you as you are seated. Fresh... More

Keep on moving down the street it you are on a stroll in charming downtown Culpeper, just pass-by Thyme and go to eat several doors down (at Foti). It's About Thyme is over-hyped, has frumpy food/menu, erratic service (we never knew who our server really was), oversized portions, too much creamy sauce and overcooked meat. Plus = something I hate:... More

As a reviewer I can recommend this restaurant upstairs party room that accommodated my family luncheon after my wife's funeral. We were welcomed August 2015 with the respected personnel at this solemn event . We are celebrating her anniversary dated August 2, 2016 with a one year memorial at this establishment August 5, 2016. The military cemetery is nearby and... More

I have eaten here many times . My first visit was 9 or 10 years ago and I really enjoyed my lunches at that time. In those days I was eating a lot heavier food than I eat now and unless you get a salad their lunch menu is extremely heavy. I tried it several times for dinner at that... More

You name it. They have it on the menu or on the shelf. Nothing ordinary about the experience whether you're a frequent visitor or a first-time tourist. Patrons are greeted by a large display of pastries ranging from delectable strussel to mouth-watering coconut cake. The chefs do it all from taking orders to operating the wood-fired (please pardon the intentional... More

This was our second time here and it just got better and better!! We showed up to a full restaurant and lots of reservations. We had our two year old who was a bit tired and no reservation (did not think it would be that full so late but obviously I know why) they took us next door to wait... More

This place really cares about the food they serve. Large potions and everything we had was very good. The rosemary bread is amazing.

Stopped for dinner on our way back from Monticello. They were running a prime rib special that evening in celebration of the restaurant's anniversary. It was outstanding!! Wait staff was very attentive. Definitely was a good choice in stopping here.
