This wine store/French Bistro has been here for almost nine years. We have been regulars here since day one. The food is fantastic and the wine selection spectacular. They are very knowledgable and have never steered me wrong. They carry a wide variety of wines in all price ranges. Having a bottle with your meal is a real value. Only... More

We went on a Wed night and they had flight night. The wine, the service and the food were all phenomenal. The owner came over and spoke with us, the place was quiet and not very crowded. LOVED the place and plan to come back here often.

Plenty to choice from here if wine dictates your food choices. Monday night all you can eat mussels cannot be beat if you're a fan.

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
