We spent a weekend in Winchester, VA touring the vineyards and wineries. Went here for dinner our first night after an internet search. What a gem! It's run by one man who is owner, chef, and host. The night we were there his son was the waiter. We called for a reservation at the last minute and we had to... More

Wonderful dinner. Fantastic lamb chops. Excellent salad. Freshly made lemonade. Pleasant atmosphere, with nice tablecloths and napkins, yet still relaxed and casual. Looking forward to returning.

Had lunch there the other day. Food was great, service was terrific! We wanted to hang and talk, and the staff/owner let us relax! Had the La Nicoise salad which had an amazing dressing. Just the perfect amount of food. Nice and light. Then was able to finish it off with a Grand Marnier creme brulee. Perfectly crusted and rich... More

Traveling from southern Virginia to Pennsylvania, my husband and I stopped in Winchester for dinner at La Nicoise Cafe, a charming, intimate French restaurant with exceptional food and service. Both of our fish dishes (I had swordfish and my husband had snapper) were even better than we expected. Portion size was just right: enough to leave us satisfied but ready... More

Met some folks for a business lunch after we all agreed on this spot at a distance since none of us were familar with the area. The owner/chef was at our table answering questions and making recommendations. It's a sign of pride that he was very concerned that I didn't finish my soup! It was excellent; I simply had more...

I brought my wife, my mom and her husband as a surprise. The ambiance was inviting with French traditional music playing in the background. Crystal was our waitress. She was perfect! Everyone had wine or sangria for drinks. The frog leg appetizer was delicious. Our meals were prepared to perfection. Desserts with coffee topped off the entire meal. The evening... More

I appreciated the quality of the perfectly spiced merguez (sausages from the Maghreb) as well as the superb cheesecake I had for dessert. The chef Frederick was very friendly and skilled and the servers: his daughter and his girlfriend were very attentive to all our needs. Overall a great experience and great atmosphere.
