We love this place! Brian and the team pair wonderful wines with delicious food in a quaint wine shop atmosphere. I’ve never once been disappointed with my in-restaurant or take-home wine selections - they really know their wines and curate them well. Many are lesser known names which means you pay for true wine quality rather than name recognition. The addition of the Bistro added a great restaurant to Oakton. Genuine food that tastes delicious and goes well with the wines and beers in the shop. We go frequently and, again, are never disappointed. It’s always spot-on with friendly and knowledgeable service, food, and drink. BTW, my wife’s favorite dish is salmon Wellington and she loves it so much she almost always orders it. I love it too but alternate through the whole menu. Go here - you’ll be happy you did.

I had a wonderful lunch with a friend at the Oakton Wine Shop and took my husband there for dinner on a Friday night. We had outstanding service, delicious food and fabulous wines. Fine wines were available by the glass so we were able to try some wonderful new things. I highly recommend this place for the food, the service and very special wine.

We happened to be in this part of town and found this restaurant by chance. The food was fresh and well prepared and the service was knowledgeable, attentive and excellent. The wines were outstanding (as expected) but the food was also very good. A true neighborhood gem.

Tried out two new dishes on their new summer menu. The Beet and Goat Cheese Salad was wonderful with the addition of a Blood Orange Miso sauce and the Shrimp Skewers were a tasty follow up. The wine pairing --- perfect .... Forester FMC Chenin Blanc.

Wine samplers were wonderful. We both had three excellent Cabernet Sauvingnons from California. Food was OK and I believe the Wine House in Fairfax has better entrees. Staff was highly knowledgeable about the wines and we enjoyed talking about lesser know wines and wineries.

The wine was really awesome. The food was too expensive in my opinion because you didn't even get that much. The cheese was $4 and we only got three slices. I think regular adults may think this is fair but my boyfriend and I are young college kids and we paid way more than we could afford. in the future I'll probably only get wine and then go over to chipotle to eat and save $60. the wine was awesome tho and the restaurant is a great place to take cute couple pics! Also the wait staff was incredible!

OWS is a neighborhood gem. My husband and I love going there, getting a bottle of wine from the wall and enjoying a delicious bite to eat. The wine selection is amazing, which you can enjoy without the normal restaurant mark-up. It's a nice respite from the crowded world of northern Virginia.

Starting with the rich and scrumptious corn and crab chowder, we went on to enjoy the flavorful crab tower and Prince Edward Island (PEI) mussels with prosciutto. A member of the staff paired our food with a wonderful and refreshing white wine from the Barcelona region of Spain. Service was excellent, and the atmosphere very friendly.

Everything we had was pretty good, but the mussels were sold out by 7 pm, and 2 of the desserts were no longer available as well. We'd go again; it was a good value and very close to home.

A quiet little gem in Oakton. The waitress was very knowledgeable and the manager took the time to come over and talk with us about the wines and the menu. Some in our party did the wine flights and they did say they could customize wine flights based on our preferences. Our entrees included the salmon wellington special which was deemed to be very good by those that ordered it as well as the scallops which were good but a bit peppery. We will definitely be back.

This was our first dining experience at this cozy neighborhood bistro. We loved the service and the concept. The food was reasonably priced and had great flavors. The steak was perfectly cooked and we had a great time. We already signed up for a wine dinner and will be bringing our friends.
