    What a fun place!! I really loved the cheese board and of course the cheese. Had the rose wine flight and enjoyed all 3 types.

    Love cheestique normally, but during this reservation - they were not able to honor my reservation because they were already booked even though open table confirmed my reservation. I do not blame cheesetique but better communication with open table would have been nice since i had driven out there thinking i had a confirmed reservation.

    It is a wonderful place with amazing cheeses and wines, as well as gluten free options. Because of the cost I can only recommend it for special events; Birthdays, anniversaries, graduations and such. There were four of us, our food and desert came to $100 before tip. If we had ordered wine it would have gone higher. Worth it, just not something we can do often.

    We probably enjoy dinner at Cheesetique once a month. The food is great, as are the wine flights. I've never paired the recommended wine with my meal on purpose, but when I've happened to pair via a wine flight, it is always spot on.

    Our group had a wonderful time here. Food, service and ambiance were great! My friend brought her baby and the restaurant was very accommodating. I thought the decor was cool and the place was very clean. My husband had the cheesesteak and I had shrimp and grits. High marks on both for taste (husband said it was one of the best sandwiches he’d ever had). I thought I should have had more than 4 shrimp for the price.

    Went for dinner on a Thursday night. Food was good, but service was a little odd. I think maybe they don't give the waitstaff sections? We would wait a very long time, and then three people would come and ask us the same question. I think next time we will go for drinks and nibbles at the bar.

    This was my second trip to this Cheesetique. The food quality was good, however, the service had declined quite a bit since my first visit. Took forever to get my flight of wine. We were done with nm our appetizers. Servers keep taking food to the wrong tables. Served us an extra soup and 5 minutes later when we got their attention they picked it up and took it to someone else.

    I love Cheesetique. This was a last minute late lunch. Wine was very good. You can never go wrong with the grown-up grilled cheese which I got. I love it. I could eat one now. My husband got the bbq chicken ma and cheese. He really liked it. I was jealous of the table by me. They had the fondue. It looked really good. Maybe next time.

Especially to receive great service from Justin or Anthony. Delicious food, great service, and cleanliness all through! Cannot think of a better place than this!

    Cheesetique - Mosaic - Permanently ClosedResponded on January 29, 2020Hello! I can't thank you enough for the kind words. I passed along your comments to our entire team at Cheesetique Mosaic (including Tony and Justin) so they can hear what great hospitality means to people. I'm very thankful you took the time to write... All the best, Jill (owner, Cheesetique)

    Went here for Sunday Brunch. The place was relatively quiet other than a large party celebrating the holidays. Considering that, our service was mediocre. The grilled cheese sandwiches were good. Will try this place again for the cheese plates.

    Cheesetique - Mosaic - Permanently ClosedResponded on January 29, 2020I'm so sorry the service was off when you visited us! Please do come again... I'm sure you'll have an awesome time. (The cheese boards are delicious, by the way.) Thank you for your feedback! Jill (owner, Cheesetique)

    I expected a lot more from the Mac and Cheese. It was was similar to instant mac you’d cook from a box and came out cold (think cheez wiz sauce). The cheese plate was decent but overpriced. The bottle of wine was well priced and waitress was good.

    I was very disappointed after someone highly recommended this restaurant (actually the one in Arlington and not Fairfax). Their cheese fondue appetizer did not come over a flame, but in a ceramic pot so it’s really just cheese spread. I added flank steak to my spinach salad, and instead of it being freshly cut steak, it was reheated steak so it was very salty and well done. My husband did not like the tomato soup and the bread he requested never came. It was way over priced for the quality of food and service provided.

    Fairly empty for a Saturday night in Mosaic. Lighting was/is a little too bright for our liking, but cute restaurant, fun simple menu. Overall food was tasty, husband ordered their special chicken sandwich, he said it was a little greasy, but tasty. My smash burger was also satisfying, not as juicy as I'd like, but as it was a special and not their normal fare was decent, but would opt for one of their menu staples next time. Service was at first great, but then petered out and our order was wrong. They compensated by giving us a little discount at the end of the night, which was kind and we appreciated. We will go back again if only to try the regular fare and not the specials.
