Cheesetique - Del Ray
We’re a specialty cheese and wine shop. We’re a comfortable, cheese-centric restaurant. We’re all things to all cheese lovers, so join us to shop, dine, or both!
The food? Amazing. The service? Top notch. The right amount of attention without it being too much. The cheese recommendations were great. The ambience was light but still classy. We had kids and they had choices for them as well but the location still kept it romantic for my partner and me. Order the Oink Old Fashioned!
Good wine selection that paired nicely with the food selection. Server recommendations were great and much appreciated. I will be back.
Service was more than slow. The waitress was apologetic when she did check in with us but would forget about requests for refills, etc. My sandwich came without my side salad. Overall disappointing.
Cozy neighborhood spot. My friend and I each had the Rye cocktail and thought it was delicious and well made. Warm olive appetizer was too much for 2 people but quite good. My grilled goat cheese sandwich was tasty but I was too full to finish it. Our server was fantastic; she kept an eye on our cocktails and timed our dinner to arrive after we were finished. This is a great place if you don't want to spend the $ at Evening Star but want a nice meal.
Great atmosphere and very quiet with delicious food. It was a great place to have lunch with family.
They were out of two things I tried to order, but otherwise everything was great!
Delicious! Totally decadent! Good atmosphere but the music was a tad too loud for me
One of our favorite places in Del Ray Alexandria. Great value, delicious food, friendly staff and thankfully, NO televisions!
I was not impressed with the world’s best Mac and cheese but everything else we ate was good. The cheesecake was fabulous. I would recommend this restaurant to others and return myself.
Did the special racketeering dinner. Enjoyable if a bit scant on the portion.
Amazing food and wine and great recommendations from the staff, will definitely be visiting again
We were two and were placed next to an etremely loud table of 12. Might reconfigure tables do all large groups are together fighting to hear their colleagues and two tops together for a more civilized experience.
Always delicious. I don’t think I’ve ever ordered my own beverage here. I always ask my server to pick a wine and have never been dissatisfied. They always pick a great pairing.
Delicious food, cozy and surprisingly spacious dining room in the back of the cheese shop. Whatever else you get, you have to order the cheese curds.
Wonderful atmosphere. Food was good but didn’t live up to atmosphere or expectations. Service was terrific and made us feel very welcome.
We will come back for the Raclette Party this week!!!
I love cheese and this is a favorite spot for them
Went for the raclette event, they were not ready for the event. The advertisements said one thing... the staff had no idea what was happening. We ended up waiting an hour after being seated for the restaurant to get it together... kind of a sad representation for something they advertised months in advance.
Cheesetique is always a favorite and excellent comfort food. Never a disappointment.
A nice evening out and an enjoyable return to a favorite place.
Awesome food and great wine. If you like cheese, this is the place to check out.
A great value for restaurant week- our server recommended an excellent wine. Next time we would definitely add a tomato soup to our order of Adult Grilled Cheese.
My 8 year old loves macaroni and cheese and has an adventurous palate. This seemed perfect for her birthday. We were there during restaurant week and the adults got the three course dinner. It was wonderful and I hope that they do that more often! I wish they would have offered something with a little more meat on it as part of the entree options. Unlike me, My husband does not live on cheese alone. But we added meat to the Mac and everything was delicious. Ambiance was lovely. Cheese/meat plate was divine. Parking was a cinch. Our server reminded us hat is was happy hour and we had wonderful reasonably price reds. I had the original Mac and it was truffle crusted gloriousness. I also tasted the Brie and pearchetta sandwich which was wonderfully satisfying. My only critique was the the kids Mac and cheese is a very small portion for $7 and does not include a drink or side. My kids each had to order a second kids meal to get filled up. Perhaps maybe some bread with the Mac and a slightly larger portion would be better- or a warning that it is only one small ramekin worth of Mac probably for kids under 5. When all was said and done I could have ordered the adult portion for the same price as two itty bitty kids portions. A small kids Mac and a side of tots was $12. But it was delicious! We all loved our food. They gave my birthday girl a complementary birthday mousse and it was chocolate heaven!! we will go back soon and bring our friends :)
Great service and great food.
Had a team lunch at Cheestique yesterday. Our team had a wonderful time. The food was wonderful - cheesy, comforting and creative. There were combinations of food (grilled cheese with brie, pears and honey) that were fabulous. They had great wine options. They even had food options for someone in our group who didn't like cheese.
I was surprised there weren't more people - but, we loved the quiet atmosphere.
I will definitely be going back.
This place is a lot bigger than meets the eye. They have a separate dining room behind the store and bar area. The menu is pretty extensive and cheesy! Great for a date night dinner.
Very cozy place with amazing cheese options and good wine.
The mimosa bucket and pear grill cheese, super yummy
This place was great! I would highly recommend it for both brunch and dinner. The cheese was incredible, the service was incredible, and a wine that was recommend has now become my absolute favorite.
A bit pricey but very good service with good food and cheese!
Had a lovely brunch - hardest part was deciding what to get! We loved everything we got although the grit cakes were just ok. Good service and quiet dining area made the meal very enjoyable.
My wife and I and our three daughters really liked it! The cocktails were excellent as well as the food. We were seated right away and when the place started getting pretty busy the service was still great. Will definitely eat here again.
Cheeseboard was kinda lackluster especially since it’s a specialty cheese shop. Wine list was fantastic and Brussels sprouts were on point.
The service was great even though there was a bar crawl going on at the same time. Food was delicious! I had the Arugula salad and Mac and Cheesetique.
A great location in Del Ray! The food and service were good. The wine, cheese and meat selection were great. This will continue to be one of our “go to” restaurants that we bring friends to for a great casual dining and wine experience.
We had a great experience at Cheesetique. The food and service were great and we could easily have a conversation across the table. We will be back.
Loved this place! It's cute and the staff was friendly. The cheese and wine pairings were delicious and staff was helpful and accommodated my allergies. Will definitely be going back.
As always, Cheesetique exceeds high expectations - great brunch menu (and was there for dinner the night before, too - equally great experience). Recommend this wonderful little restaurant to everyone.
My favorite place in Del Ray! The food and wine is delicious, the staff is lovely — the perfect date night!
