The food was delicious and presentation good but the food portions were extremely small! I ordered scallops as my dinner entree and received 3 tiny scallops. They were accompanied by a side of 2 brussel sprouts. I enjoyed them but they felt like "tasting bites" and I left unsatisfied and hungry. At the $28-$45 range they are charging for entrees, they should at least offer a more reasonable dinner portion size!

The food was wonderful. The best part was the staff brought our 11 year old son back to the kitchen where they make all the desserts and let him try to copy the chef making the dessert. It was awesome!!

We had a delicious dinner and fabulous service. A lovely intimate restaurant with great attention to detail. The drinks, salads and entrees were very good. They encourage you to watch your dessert being made through a window which was a great idea.

I was there with the family to celebrate an anniversary. We're all vegetarians and there was plenty to choose from. Their flatbreads are wonderful - although they were not able to make the avocado ones for us on this visit. Really nice flavors. Their fries are excellent - nice play with spices and a dip that has a touch of chocolate. Their version of fried cauliflower was the favorite. We ordered three different flavors of their hot chocolate and each was excellent. They simply have the best desserts - you simply can't go wrong. My only criticism is the pricing of their scotch - truly double the price of other places of I've been to (wasn't an actual issue for me since I was there at lunch, but still).

Loved the concept and creativity of the menu. The drinks were amazing but the service was incredibly slow. It took nearly an hour to get our apatizer and another 40 for or main dishes. For a table of two in a restaurant that wasn’t packed it took us over 2 hours to eat. They also said that certain items weren’t available, such as the tasting menu, because they owner/head chef was not in and they didn’t feel that “the quality of food would be as acceptable.” If they can’t create consistent quality all time, then is it worth eating here without the owner present?

It was not the experience we were hoping for. We did not feel welcomed by the Hostess, waiter or even the GM that was just making drinks and never even gave so much as look or smile the whole time we were there in front of him. The food was just okay. Nothing making us say wow or making us wanting to come back again. As a mater of fact I got the chicken and waffles and the over cooked boneless thigh meat looked much different than the 2 orders that were served to the table behind us. Waiter didn't seem to care if we enjoyed it or not. Even when we asked for the bill with left over food and gristle from the chicken left on the plate. We were so excited to be charmed just a bit, but not in any aspect.

Had a wonderful meal with friends to celebrate my birthday last night. As usually the food is wonderful and the service top notch. Each dish was amazing. There deserts wonderful, we had a flaming chocolate dish that was so much fun, great to share. Conche is one of my favorite restaurants in Loudoun County. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

My husband and I rarely try new places, but if every ew restaurant we tried was as good as The Conche we would definitely be more apt to step outside our comfort zone! Every bite was a flavor explosion and we didn’t encounter one dish that didn’t dazzle. Highly recommend the pork belly buns as a first course, and the short rib melted in your mouth. Lamb was great, but I had entree envy of my husband’s short rib. Don’t skip the hot chocolate- it was easily one of the yummiest things I’ve ever drank... we look forward to trying new things again on our next visit!

Had a surprise fixed price menu to choose from (between 4-6) with great choices. Wonderful service. Halibut was cooked perfectly and friends both had steak done just like they wanted. Unbelievable desserts, real show stoppers. We're going back to try the lunch too! Looks very small from outside, but the restaurant is very tasteful and is quite large inside. Lots of space for diners, not crammed in.

The food was truly great. We had shrimp, butternut squash soup, scallops, salmon and desserts. All were wonderful.
Service was good.
I had a chocolate imperial stout that was a revelation.
Portions are modest. You should get to dessert -do it.
Share a bit.

The portion size of the braised short rib was a bit smaller than I was expecting. That is the only critique I have of the place. Everything was delicious! I ordered the Halibut as a second entree, Amazing. The wife loved the chocolate themed adult beverage and the dessert. I was totally impressed with the experience. We will be going back.

Conche is a good all-around experience, though a bit pricey for what you end up with. I really enjoyed where they incorporated chocolate into their meals, though want more of their entrees to have a chocolate component as quite a few of the listed entrees when I went had no listed chocolate components and it would have been really neat to see them incorporated. It would also be interesting to see if they could manage some more ornate cocktails with the chocolate theme than the expected (chocolate martini) and a few places where it just fits nicely (old fashion).

Overall, this is a place I will be back to, but not very often.

Worth a drive from NoVa to the outskirts of Leesburg. The service is great and the food always impresses us. The French fries and dipping sauces are so good and the desserts are incredible. Ivan was our waiter and was just delightful. Already can’t wait to go back and I recommend it to all my friends.

My friend and I used to go to Co Co Sala once a year to celebrate our "friendiversary" and were so sad to hear that it closed. Until....we learned that Chef Santosh Tiptur (from Co Co Sala) opened The Conche in Leesburg!! It was familiar bliss as we once again indulged in Chef Tiptur's beautiful chocolate creations. The atmosphere is refined yet relaxed. Looking forward to going back time and time again to share this culinary experience with friends and family. This is chocolate as it truly should be!
