OMG, to use a millennial turn of the word! This place is well worth visiting and sampling all their offerings. No worries, carnivores and omnis, you too can eat well here. But this is a vegetarian's heaven! I am loath to recommend anything, because it's...More

Really friendly staff. The restaurant is very cozy and in the back of a small specialty store. The prices were a little on the high side for sandwiches. The macaroni and cheese was quite tasty. The sandwiches were above average. I would go back.

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
