“Best tapas/wine bar around!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I have been frequenting The Wine Kitchen since we discovered them a couple years ago. The food is consistently delicious and creative, as well as beautifully presented. They have a wonderful wine selection with thoughtfully assembled flights. It's not unusual for us to buy a bottle or two to bring home with us. A quick note - They are in an adorable old building in historic Leesburg, but it is very small. Because of their size, they do not take reservations. (We have brought a group of 5-6 here before but not on a weekend.) I'd say they are best suited for an intimate meal between 2-4 people. Prepare to wait on a weekend, however the staff has always been very gracious and accommodating. Also, they have a great Sunday brunch with live music. Not to be missed!

“Wine Kitchen is our favorite!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013 via mobile

Whenever we go to Middleburg, Aldie or Sperryvile in Virginia, we always go through Old Leesburg just to dine at the Wine Kitchen! Their food is always prepared beautifully and the selections of wine are marvelous! The service is friendly and the servers are very knowledgeable. My husband and i also like the understated interior. This is a definite go-to place.

“Vibrant restaurant in Leesburg”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

We went to The Wine Kitchen Saturday night. Very busy with lots of energy. It took us an hour to get seated but the Host was very nice. The restaurant doesn't take reservations but their food is very good. There wine was a bit above average but they didn't have high end wines. We had the Coq au Vin which was prepared excellent. I recommend this restaurant when visiting Leesburg.

“Good food and wine but service well below average”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

Quaint restaurant with a lot of character. Food was good and so was the wine. Menu is small but what really left a bad taste in my mouth was the complete lack of service from the wait staff. Staff seemed like they were miserable. Not once did they smile or make an effort to make us feel welcome. Very very cold personalities.... The little things such as acknowledging a thank you with a "youre welcome" rather then out right ignoring it goes a long way. New York City or Leesburg?

“Best kept secret”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

My sweetheart and I were in the area and searched for a place to eat. Since this was rated #1 while we preferred the menu reading it from window of a place up the street we decided to stick with the rating of this restaurant. I am so glad we did, the food, wine, and service were excellent, I would strongly recommend as it is worth the trip
