If you haven’t been to this location before, it’s surprisingly big. In addition to the seating out front and in the back of the store area, there’s another room behind that. Amongst us, we split the Tot Poutine, Roman Holiday salad, Iberico Bellota (Lomo Sandwich),...More

The place is not too big, and quite expensive, but it's a nice stop for a quick meeting with a friend, or for drinks before dinner! The wine selection is not too extensive, but the wines that are offered are pretty decent.

Yes! They have Wensleydale, but this is so much more than a fine wine and cheese shop. Since it opened in this cute little northern VA neighborhood (they now have 2 other locations), it has grown to include a bar/restaurant and some first-rate cheese classes...More

Arlington is such a great reason not to go to DC. Cheesetique was a pleasant find for us. We needed a place to unwind from the snarl of DC traffic and parades. If the weather allows, you can side outside and take in the beauty...More

Cheese to go and all the accoutrements, excellent but infrequent tasting...More

A charming neighborhood location with a store in front and several tables in the rear. Not large, so a reservation is a good idea. A bucket of Mimosas is $25 and has a bottle of bubbly and a carafe of OJ. A good deal. Lobster...More

How can you not love the apple squash soup when it arrives all jazzed up! This is a winter bring-em-back item. Unique taste, not sweet at all. Only thing better would be a bigger bowl!
