“Light Lunch, live band & wine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

My weekend destination before heading to Leesburg Outlet, "Wine and Kitchen" for light lunch (portion is not big but absolutely tasty) with live band & wine tasting. Got charcuterie, Bacon Steak, Creole mussels with crawfish & grit. Weekend free parking at Town Hall public garage next to the restaurant and walk to Market st.

“Super Specials every night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

This is a very friendly wine bar with very nicely done meals. I had a sea bass that was excellent. Need to get here by 6 if you don't want to wait. Wine tasting selection is great and cleverly done. A little better ventilation would help with kitchen oil at bit in the air. Went in twice in a week, second time temperature inside was almost insufferable. Left after eating as quickly as possible

“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.
