Delicious, ample food, great wine pairings, nice ambiance. Owner came to our table. We were delighted to find high quality close to home in a local Virginia restaurant. Will come again, with friends.

We happened to stumble upon this place as we were looking for a dinner spot. It was a lovely night and we chose to sit outside. Attentive service. Nice selection of wines by the glass. We enjoyed our charcuterie plate of meats and cheeses. The East Bank Bordeaux was a perfect match. Our dinners were delicious. The lamb was perfectly... More

To be honest, this review is based solely on experience and not on dining. My husband and I decided to take a trip to Northern Virginia to celebrate our anniversary. We chose the Wine House based on the reviews we read and the fact we love this type of restaurant. My husband made reservations at the restaurant a few days... More

Today was our first visit to the Wine House and we are kicking ourselves that we had not tried it before. Four of us dined leisurely for lunch, and we all decided to take advantage of the prix fix offering offered each day. What a fabulous value! First, we chose wine from their tremendous selections offered by the glass. Beautiful... More

We are never disappointed dining at The Wine House. The staff is friendly and a well versed sommelier is nearly always there during dinner times. Even some of the wait staff are well versed in wines. The food is great. Favorites include their Crab Cakes, Short Ribs and Steak Frites. Monday Night Mussels is a great value and the variety... More

Part wine bar paired with a french style restaurant equals an amazing dining experience. The Wine House has over 600 different varietals of wine and their menu has gems - Cassoulet with Duck, Sausage and Pork belly, Mussels with Saffron Cream and Spinach. Not familiar with the wine selections - well, they can pair a glass to make the dinner... More

Monday night may not be a night to shine, but for this couple it would have been appreciated. We were trying to end our weekend vacation on a special note and it was just OK. We started with a Happy Hour bottle of wine, a cheese plate and some asparagus soup. All were very good. The service was very attentive... More

I had high hopes for the Wine House, but the food & service has been disappointing--it's erratic, at best. I think it remains crowded on wine tasting nights because there's nowhere else in the city offering the same. There is a good selection of wine to purchase, but don't expect any savings there.

Thank 24tripper44
