Date night with wifey and we couldn’t have picked a better place.

You have to appreciate service when they ask if you’re celebrating anything, and discuss the tempo of how you’d like to roll out your courses.

We had the calamari (10/10) for an appetizer, my wife ordered the sweet corn risotto (10/10) and I had the bone-in rib eye (10/10).

All of the Conche team were pleasant and looked out for all of the diners (refills on drinks, taking away plates, etc).

I’m outlining all of this because you’re truly getting value here, and we definitely will be back.

Memorable dinner, memorable food.

Food was good, but portions were so small I had to get a burger afterwards at the restaurant next door! The flatbreads leaved much to be desired, we really liked the fish. Also the short ribs dish tasted just like beef stew, nothing memorable about it. Just left me wanting for more.

The cocktail list is fantastic and we recommend some of their special cocktails with Catoctin Creek Rye. Food was delicious.

We had reservations for Sunday brunch. Arrived a few minutes early and were seated at a table for two by the window. Our server was excellent, attentive and responsive. We ordered Mimosa's and our brunch: eggs and hash for me; crab cake burger for my wife. Both were excellent and half of each went home for further consumption. We both had ice cream for dessert; I had the smoked chocolate scoops which was really good (the restaurant is chocolate-themed). We enjoyed our brunch there very much; I highly recommend The Conche

I would definitely recommend Conche to a friend, as we did that night when they took us to dinner there!...However, I would caution that the cocktails are good, but small. They seem to adhere to a shot glass when pouring drinks...and for the price of the drinks, I would like to have a more 'filled' glass, instead of a half filled glass. Other than that, we enjoyed everything else

Six month dating anniversary and The Conche did not disappoint. Our waiter Ivan was attentive without being intrusive. He was very knowledgeable about the menu and how each item was prepared and served. I've been there many times before but my date had not. We shared the compressed watermelon and grilled halloumi salad which was spectacular. Ivan brought is a sparkling rose' that paired perfectly. She had the rack of lamb and was cooked perfect at med-rare. I ordered the seared scallops which are always amazing. We watched the chocolatier make our dessert and that really made the evening special.

Had a wonderful dinner last night at the Conch. We’ve been here before and certainly will go again. My Wife had the Short Ribs and I had the Scallops. Both entrees were amazing! I have read reviews that indicate that service has been uneven, but that wasn’t our experience. Our waiter, Sharif, was attentive, personable, and knowledgeable. He recommended the perfect wine to go long with the Short Ribs. And of course nothing beats the dessert at the Conch. Chocolate Heaven.

We went for dessert and had made a 8:30 reservation online since it was a Friday night. The place was packed and glad that we reserved ahead of time. The staff was very friendly and attentive, the desserts were delicious, very beautifully displayed, and European portions-so don't go there if you are looking for a huge sundae or a giant slice of cake! We haven't tried the food from the main menu yet but am told it is amazing so will plan that for next time!

This place came highly recommended. My husband ordered the bacon Mac n cheese which was very good. My husband got the rack of lamb and i got the strip steak. My steak was a bit undercooked and the lamb was over cooked. We would have returned it but the service was spotty and we figured it would take too long. It was very noisy and they couldn’t process gift cards unless it was their own. Also, nothing was comped for the lamb issue. For the price point we expected better.

The service from the moment we arrived and Ivan’s waiting was excellent. The wine recommendation and absolute positive with bought two bottles of the Quilt. Food was delicious, the Catalonia shrimp and calamari delicious. The salmon and lobster pasta were good. I would add more lobster tale meat to the pasta. Dessert churros and the chocolate creme brulee were my favorites. We will be back.

We chose The Conche to celebrate our anniversary. Upon reservations, we requested for a nice quiet table & even called to maker sure that happened but when we got there, we were given the first table by the door with a lot of people traffic. Very disappointed, we spoke to two people and it was Nicholas and Ivan who moved us to a more romantic table. Thank you guys! From then, the even just got better and better. Ivan who attended to us was very enthusiastic, fun and accommodating. He was knowledgeable about the food too. The food was creative, tasty and just impressive. The Chef really knew how to make things right. Only suggestion is to put more crab meat on the crab cake rather than fillers. Everything else was very good, i.e. kale salad, lamb, flatbread and dessert. It was worth the hour drive from home and became a memorable evening.

Dessert was interesting and great. App highlights were the calamari and the poke. The cocktails were amazing but took 45 mins for everyone to get theirs in a large group. There were two versions of the cocktail menu which caused additional ordering confusion. The dinner was 3 hours and we were waiting on the person to come back to do the basics like bring app plates and order dinner. The food was good but the server was very inexperienced and didn't do simple things like take the menus after we ordered. Very mixed experience.

The chocolate theme is great. It’s disappointing when service fails. You watch your server take better care of others is disturbing. Please be consistent. Why do u pick up dirty plates from other tables & I had to place them on the end of the table hoping you’ll get the hint. Nope. Finally had to ask. Cmon. This is basics. Please try harder.

When I found out about The Conche, I was extremely ecstatic because some of the staff and dishes were from another restaurant my husband, my sister and myself loved. I decided to surprise my husband for our 10-year anniversary and I must say it was wonderful. The drink, appetizers, meal and desserts were outstanding and so delicious. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for uniquely tasting drinks and creative dishes that are delicious and would not be able to find it anywhere else. Something I learned was that about 48% of their meals (which may include their drinks) are made with chocolate. In addition, their chocolate sculptures looks amazing.


I would like to say thank you to Kristen, Semeth, Isabelle and other staff for making our 10-year anniversary dining experience special.


We will definitely be back and you will be seeing me in your drink and chocolate classes

A friend told my wife and I about "The Conche" and almost demanded we visit this restaurant. The friend stated the food was almost orgasmic. Lol Although not orgasmic, the food was absolutely phenomenal!!! I had the shrimp and grits and my wife devoured her New York Strip. Our waiter was loud but very knowledgeable of every dish. He made our dinning experience here great! We did not indulge in dessert but there was no room left in either of our belly's however; I did take several pieces of chocolates to the Cobb 12 Theatre and enjoyed each piece while watching Crawl. We highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys quality food. I spent less than $100 for my wife's and I meal btw. To the management of "The Conche", please keep the great work up! Love that the General Manager of the establishment was actively assisting his staff also.

Food and drinks were tasty. We ordered halibut and vegetarian risotto. Halibut was a thick cut of fish, buttery, and well seasoned. Risotto was very flavorful. Of course, desserts were a hit. I just wished the quantity was a little more. The menu lists what you expect to see on the dessert, so it's a bit deceiving when you see 5-10 different things under one dessert. After all, it's chocolate! Who doesn't want more chocolate?
