    My grilled cheese with Asian pear and prosciutto was the best grilled cheese I have ever had--second place isn't even close. Service was prompt and courteous. My wife and I enjoyed our dinners and won't hesitate to go back the next time we are at Shirlington.

    We waited nearly 20 min to place our order. We were here for restaurant week with a fixed menu. After ordering our food we were told they were out of many of the items we ordered, including an entree and 2 desserts. We were not told the restaurant was out of anything before ordering our food. Overall we were rarely checked on and there was long periods of waiting. After our food came we had to ask the host for silver ware. The waiter promised us a discount because so many things we ordered were out, but in the end only took off a 9$ glass of wine.

    Went on a weekday for RW. The place was less than half full. It took 20 min for my goat cheese salad, which was decent. Good size if light on the goat cheese, which was the size of a tablespoon. Server highly recommended the lasagna which came out right after the salad was placed on the table. Most of the lasagna was burnt black and so hard it was inedible. The server never mentioned the lasagna came with a side salad. If she had I would have tried the other RW appetizer. I asked for a small box for the salad and the server said they would bring one right away. I didn’t see any staff for a long time and other tables wanted boxes and their checks too. They were not short staffed either, but I was towards the front. 20 min later I get up and ask someone else for my dessert to go, a box, and my check. I realized I was there almost 90 min and I didn’t even eat dessert there! Ate the dessert at home. Chocolate mousse was delicious, but I was disappointed the portion was the size of an egg. I won’t be back when there are so many other better places next door.

    Cheesetique - ShirlingtonResponded on January 28, 2023Hi there. Thank you for your feedback, though I'm so sorry to hear about this poor experience. We will use your review to teach our team on what to do and what NOT to do. I'm surprised about the portion sizes, and will speak with the kitchen. This is definitely not the typical Cheesetique experience and I hope you will consider giving us another chance. I'll reach out to you directly as well. Thank you! Jill (owner, Cheesetique)

    We went for Restaurant Week special menu but couldn’t resist our favorite—cheesesteak with super fresh salad greens. We had a glass of the Barolo on their reserve wine list and it was so good that we bought 6bottles with the 10% discount diners get in their wine shop. Plus we got another 10% off as a quantity discount. Very enjoyable dinner all around. But the Restaurant Week menu looked very good!!

    Cheesetique - ShirlingtonResponded on January 28, 2023Yay Cheesesteak! And I'm thrilled that you loved the Barolo (it's one of my absolute favorites). Come back to see us soon!

    Came here for restaurant week, enjoyed the starter (warm goat cheese and arugula salad) entree (truffle gnocchi) and dessert (chocolate mousse) selection. Food was great, I would go for the Mac n cheese or grilled cheese or sandwiches next time, wine was great albeit a little too overpriced when seeing the actual prices for a bottle on Vivino. I expect a decent markup on wine however an $85 bottle was actually $30 market price, so I switched to beer, which they had some decent local selections, they also have cocktails/mocktails. The ambience is good, better in the front than in the separate back area but still nice. It’s a cute date spot or special occasion place for me.

    Cheesetique - ShirlingtonResponded on January 28, 2023So glad you enjoyed your visit! Our wine list in the restaurant should be just $15 - $20 above our retail shop prices. If you send the wine you're referring to, I'd be happy to look into it. Again, thanks for visiting us and we hope to see you again soon! - Jill (owner, Cheesetique)

    We have been fans of Cheesetique for years. We enjoyed dining at the Merrifield location and mourned its closing. During the pandemic we participated in the virtual cheese tastings with friends and have shopped at the Shirlington location. However, our dinner before the theater fells short of expectations. Service was inconsistent. It started with the greeter who seemed indifferent to our arrival. Our server was cheerful and pleasant but often absent, leading to delays and certainly lost sales for the restaurant. Most disappointing was the lack of cheese as the centerpiece of the evening. We ordered warm olives and Manchego, which technically we got but there were approximately 40 olives and three sugar cube sized pieces of Manchego. Olives were clearly the overwhelming ingredient. They were bad, but we came to Cheesetique for the cheese and there was barely a taste in this appetizer. We ordered the Poutin and in this case the cheese was there but the sauce was somewhat off-putting and not what we have experienced with other Poutin dishes from Canada and the northern US. We ordered the short ribs, which were tender and flavorful, but the cheese infused mashed potatoes seemed absent of a cheese-like quality one would expect of a cheesemonger. I'll be back to by the cheese, but will think twice about dining there. Definitely a bummer on the evening.

    Cheesetique - ShirlingtonResponded on January 28, 2023Hi there Andrew. I'm so sorry we gave you such a lackluster experience. My team and I will go through your feedback in detail and work with the team to improve. Thank you for being fans for so many years - I only hope that our history together will allow you to forgive this poor experience and give us another chance. I'll reach out to you directly as well. Thank you! Jill (owner, Cheesetique)

    The music was a little too loud making it hard to hear my dining companions. Also, two of us had the crab mac and there wasn't any visible crab meat. Crab seasoning yes, but crab meat, no. Otherwise, our server was friendly and attentive.

    Cheesetique - ShirlingtonResponded on January 28, 2023Hi there! I'll definitely pass along your feedback about the Crab Mac. There should have been lots of crab to enjoy. I appreciate you letting me know!

    The perfect place to grab a bite before seeing a show at the Signature Theater. The food is good (there's more to it than cheese), prices are reasonable, and parking in the nearby garages is free.

    Visited for restaurant week. 3 course meal for $35/person. Because it was restaurant week the offering was limited—the lasagna and pot pie were tasty, but nothing special. Wine list was limited, but not marked up leaving us feeling that we were not taken advantage of for a bottle of wine.

    I have been a customer for years, but today’s service was the worst service I have experienced in decades. The restaurant was not at all busy, yet it took them 15 minutes to even approach our table and offer water. It took even longer to get our drink order, and our server never asked if we wanted refills. After we were there for almost an hour (and had not received our starter), I politely approached the hostess, who blew me off and told me she could do nothing. When our meal finally did arrive (starter and main course arrived at the same time), they got my friend’s order wrong. It took another 15 minutes to fix that (it was a sandwich). The manager said that our server was brand new, but someone could have helped him, as there were employees standing around, doing nothing. And that doesn’t explain the poor behavior from the hostess. The unbelievably poor service ruined the whole experience. I have always loved Cheesetique, but I will never go back.

    Cheesetique - ShirlingtonResponded on January 28, 2023Hi there. We definitely dropped the ball on this visit and I sincerely apologize. I am sharing your feedback with our serving and management team so we can use this as a learning opportunity. I'm happy that you have supported Cheesetique for years and hope that our history together will allow you to forgive this poor experience and give us another chance.

    Restaurant was busy but had open tables. We sat waiting to be greeted for about 15 min and watched tables sat after us get greeted. We left after that without the waiter even acknowledging our presence, water provided or order taken. I've been there before and it was a great experience hence the attempt at a second visit. This time it was not and the hostess did not seem to care when we told her why were leaving.

    We had a big party and there was a lot of noise so it was hard to hear but that’s probably unavoidable on a Friday evening. They were out of Fondue which was a little odd and one of us had to send back our cocktail because it wasn’t made well. Otherwise it was a good experience!

    Service was disappointing. Took the server a while to come to the table. When we finally got drinks there was confusion on what was ordered. A second wine flight that wasn’t ordered came to our table and we felt the server was annoyed with us. Multiple times food came to our table that was not ordered and it seemed like it was everyone’s first day. We ordered four appetizers one came out and then a few minutes later a second one came but the other two didn’t come out until the entrees were being delivered. No one checked back and we had to flag down our server to order a second drink. It wasn’t busy so we didn’t understand what the poor service was about. Food wasn’t great but wasn’t bad.

    We had a family lunch of 9, and were given a table off the main area, quiet and just right for conversation. Our waiter Jeremiah was great, paid attention without being either absent for too long or hovering. Everyone loved the food, the cheese boards were demolished,the drinks delicious, including the non-alcoholic. We had a great experience at a very fair price for all of it. After we finished our daughter got good advice for a cheese board of her own, and in perusing the wine selections in the front my brother, a wine aficionado, was impressed by the selection and pricing. We recommend!

    Cheesetique - ShirlingtonResponded on December 5, 2022Thank you so much for the kind words, Edie! I'm thrilled to hear that your family had fun at lunch. And thanks for the positive feedback about the wine selection! We hope to see you again soon. All the best, Jill (owner, Cheesetique)

Top kudos for Jeremiah who was attentive and very helpful. It was not super busy at the restaurant so… hope it’s improved if we come back. Consider this one and Del Ray little jewels. Used to be

    Great experience for my birthday. The wine was fantastic, the cheese delicious, and everyone said they loved what they had ordered. A friend had brought a cake for me, and the restaurant was kind enough to store the cake, then add the candles, light them and bring it out. There are suggested wine pairings for their meals directly on the menu, and I enjoyed the suggested wine for their pot pie so much that I purchased a bottle to take home with me. You get 10% off wine and cheese purchases when you dine in.

    Sadly we experienced poor service between the host seating us, our first server who left his shift and our second who was trying to pick up from the other. Our food came out haphazardly, they missed one entire meal. The food quality has declined - even the soups were not hot or tasty. I had company from outside the country and was very happy to take them there, I was slightly embarrassed and glad they understood the circumstances were out of my control. I frequent this location and would hate to not return, but our bill was over $160 which I would gladly play for food service and food - for what we experienced I can’t justify another visit.

    Cheesetique - ShirlingtonResponded on October 18, 2022I'm so sorry that your visit did not go well. To start, it seems there was confusion about your outdoor/indoor seating request. Then, with a person arriving and ordering later, we should have asked whether you wanted to hold all entrees until the last one was ready. I wish we had known so we could have fixed your concerns during your visit, but I'll reach out directly to make it right for next time We appreciate your long-time support and hope you'll come back! -Jill (owner, Cheesetique)

    The food was very tasty and worth the visit. The restaurant, like so many, seems to be suffering the effects of the pandemic in terms of service. We waited about 5 minutes before someone appeared at the host station to check us in and seat us. Then it took quite a long time to get water, glasses for the water, and silverware. The fried cheese curds were a revelation - surprisingly light and accompanied by 2 different sauces, tomato and aioli. Olives with manchego cubes also were tasty. The wine list was interesting and a good value, offering different sized pours. We each had a sandwich for our main - one of their signature grilled cheese and a roast beef sandwich. Both yummy. For dessert, we had the key lime bars and chocolate mousse. Both delicious. Only flaw for dessert -- no decaf coffee, let alone decaf espresso or cappucchino. Restaurant design is nice and we had a table by the window. Perfect date night setting.

    Best cheesesteak ever! Best chocolate mouse ever! Many other excellent menu items and nice wine menu. I always buy Parmesan and St Angel cheese here. Nice variety of crackers and other specialty items plus you get a discount if you dine-in. One of the best places in Arlington!

    Cheesetique - ShirlingtonResponded on September 25, 2022Many thanks! So glad you enjoyed both the restaurant and the shop. Come back soon... the Cheesesteak will be waiting!

    First of all the food was fantastic! Unfortunately, the service left much to be desired. They weren't unfriendly or anything like that. They just weren't very attentive. There were patrons at about 6 tables in the entire establishment when we arrived for our 6 pm reservation. We were seated right away but once we were able to finally order, our wine glasses sat empty for nearly 10 mins after finishing our first glass. Our appetizer dishes and dinner dishes weren't cleared in a timely manner meaning we sat having dinner conversation at a table crowded with dirty dishes. These truly aren't a big deal for us in the grand scheme of things but was ultimately a knock on the restaurant that wasn't very busy at all. Ended up preventing both of us from ordering a 3rd glass of wine or dessert. Would likely go back for a lunch meal but wouldn't recommend for date night on your anniversary.

    Cheesetique - ShirlingtonResponded on September 25, 2022Hi there, Tim. I'm sorry to hear that our service game was off when you visited, especially on such a special occasion! I'm going to reach out to you directly to make it right for next time. Best, Jill (owner, Cheesetique)

    It had been several years since my last visit, and I like the enlarged space and outdoor area.
