This little place looked very interesting so stopped in for dinner. What a treat! Good food done uniquely, lovely cheeses and wine to go with. Waitress we had was very knowledgeable and friendly. Can't remember her name, but she was born in Germany!

We stopped by for an after dinner glass of wine. The have a nice variety of wines from many regions and offer cheese boards with meats, olives & breads. They also have a nice bistro menu for those looking for a meal complete with salad, sandwiches, entrees and desserts. They offer (generously poured) flights of wine and you can pick... More

Really enjoyed the various options of meat and cheese combinations. The options are 3,5,10 combos of meat and cheese. The addition of fresh vegetables and dried fruit add to eats appeal. My favorite meat is the duck. My favorite cheese is the Batch 11.

We visited in December 2015 and again in January 2017. Both visits involved a large selection of meats and cheeses, glasses of wine, knowledgeable staff, and a great vibe. I highly recommend the roasted olives as an additional option to complement the flavors of the meats and cheeses. Bon appétit!

This small Paris style café serves cheese, wine and other food options. We had lunch on a Friday and enjoyed some rose wine, a cheese plate, a sandwich and salads. Our Bill approached $250 which was astounding for a lunch for five people. But that included two bottles of wine. The server was helpful and attentive. Right on King Street... More

So many places in Old Town are just OK since they mainly serve tourists who are only here for a short time and may never return. La Fromagerie is the exception and has many loyal local followers. It is worth your time to go to this gem. It is right on King Street - the main drag - in between... More

This is a top-notch restaurant. This was some of the best cheese and charcuterie I've had in the US. As a European, I crave this type of food and so really enjoyed stumbling across this gem. The portions may not be massive, but you pay for quality here. The source farms are listed so you know your meal has come... More

In Alexandria on business and decided I wanted something light for dinner. After walking up and down King Street, stumbled upon La Fromagerie and took a chance. Outstanding is the only way to describe the experience. Arrived during Happy Hours and sat at the bar. Was served a very nice French Red Blend (House) priced at $5.00. Ordered the Whole... More

Small and intimate. My best friend and I go for lunch almost once a month. Summer, winter, it does not matter. Soups, salads, wine, and the best baguette around.
