My girlfriend and I stopped here for lunch while were in the Del Ray area. Since this place was highly recommended on TripAdvisor, we decided to give it a try. We both had the Grilled Cheese with Tomato Soup. Boy, was it delicious. The grilled cheese was made with white cheddar on a scrumptious non chewy bread that was grilled... More

How can you not like a restaurant whose primary offerings are plates with cheese? While the food is a little on the pricey side, they have a great lunch special with a soup and sandwich for $10. Worth it! And the soup and sandwich were both extremely delicious. They had an extensive menu and it seems like it would be... More

Went there for lunch based upon reviews. Overwhelmed with cheese options but since it was a cold day, we did not eat outside but were seated in the back room. Cozy atmosphere with empty wine bottles lining the walks like a library, dark and "club like". I didn't care for the fried/cooking smells emanating from the kitchen. Maybe I'm overly... More

I don't know what I loved the best about this place -- the cozy ambiance, the awesome cheeses, the whimsical twist on home fare or what. Friends took me to dinner here while visiting the area. The restaurant specializes in mac and cheese, and grilled cheese sandwiches. Normally that would have been disappointing due to not being able to eat... More

Perfect place to get a light, delicious meal that includes cheese in the ingredients - nice selection of wines to accompany your choice of dishes and friendly service. Just a few tables outside at this location but if you can get one on a beautiful day, the experience is even better.

Great cheeses, of course, nice wines and a lovely atmosphere makes Cheesetique a go-to place for a light-isn meal. The grilled pimento cheese sandwich is one of the greatest sandwiches you'll ever have. A nice surprise because it has a lovely pepper kick that makes it special. The meats and cheese boards cannot be beat. The wine selection is broad... More

Friendly, wonderful restaurant with great food and cheese. We had a group of 10 women and no reservation and they cleared a display area to make room for all of us

If you're ever in a mood for wine, cheese, and some good food this is your place! I don't remember anything about outdoor seating...

Cheesetique - when it first opened it was really great - they have taken a couple of items off the menu (quiche was one which was very disappointing) the dining experience is nice in the warm weather where you can sit outside, however, the atmosphere in the inside leaves a bit to desire - Great for a nice glass of...

About once every six months since this shop expanded now seven years ago, I've found myself walking in to pick up some cheese, grab a quick bottle of wine or order dinner for take away. Each time I hope for a better experience and for Cheesetique to live up to expectations and the reviews. I want this shop and its... More
