Outstanding meal once again. We focused on the specials and very much enjoyed the green-lipped mussels and the scallops.

Solid French menu. Staff could have been more attentive. I would have liked assistance choosing wine, but they were preoccupied. The restaurant wasn't busy so they should have noticed I wanted help.

The menu has nice selection of items to please many tastes, and huge wine selection. Preparation and presentation is spot-on and the service is swift, pleasant and unobtrusive. It was a very pleasant evening for my wife and I and our out-of-town guests.

Incredible food, wonderful selection of wine. What a great discovery. Although we have been dining in the vicinity and throughout the area for years, we just found The Wine House. And without a doubt this is one of the best restaurants in Northern Virginia. The food is amazing, the servers are friendly and helpful, the restaurant is cozy and intimate. Will be back soon.

My husband & I were there for Fairfax restaurant week. The special menu had a good selection of items to chose from. I had the smoked salmon appetizer - enjoyed that. Then had the flat iron steak - was okay. Next time I'll order something else. The pork entrée my husband had was very good. Our table was not in the best location since it was right behind the check in podium. Will come here again.

Wonderful experience and excellent food!
The Wine House has been a favorite local restaurant for the past few years. It has consistently served delicious food and wine in a charming and lively atmosphere. The service is always friendly and efficient.
You can have a wonderful dinner here but you can also just stop in for a glass of wine and small plates. Great find!

Interesting restaurant in the Wine House. Lots of wine on the shelves and the food was amazing! I took my fiance here for Valentine's based on the reviews I had read and very glad I did. The service was impeccable and everything was perfect! It was a wonderful evening and we will definitely come back.

We keep coming back to this local gem. As always, the food is well-prepared and delicious and the service was attentive but not intrusive. This was our first time trying “Steak Night” and we were not disappointed. And we love that we can choose a bottle of wine from the retail shelves or off the wine list. This time it was a Terra Barossa that perfectly complimented our meal. Looking forward to our next visit to the Wine House.

We went for dinner on New Year's Eve and thoroughly enjoyed the meal. Our food came out hot and tasted great. There was a nice sparkling Rose served with the appetizers. As expected there is a large selection of wine to choose from. Service was ok, not great. We waited a while after being seated and it was busy but not overly so. Our overall experience was very good and I would recommend this restaurant and we do plan on returning.

The Wine House is a special place for us and our best friends. We always enjoy the food, service and atmosphere. The owner is normally there to greet the table at some point during the evening and he’s very kind. The last two visits left our clothes smelling of fried food/grease that required dry cleaning. Never had that happen before. It’s a unique restaurant / wine store,

Artfully and deliciously prepared food paired with fine wine. Delightful selection of food, so many top wines from all over the world it was difficult to choose one, not to mention the champagne as aperitif...

Great farm to table menu. First time on Steak Night (Thursday). Strip was excellent and they even had the duck confit as a special (my favorite dish - there). The wine selection is fantastic and you can’t beat the in-restaurant wine pricing.

If you like great wine and good food, the Wine House is THE place to go. The wine list is extensive; including any wine they have on their wall racks for sale, and the kitchen is first rate. Whatever you order, be sure to ask for a side of their french fries if they don't come with the meal; they are absolutely the best I've ever tasted! Their sauces are exquisite, and they will make substitutions to satisfy any food allergies or intolerance you might have. Bottom line: if you've not yet been to the Wine House, you are missing something great!

Excellent wine selection and options. Waitress was knowledgeable about wines and presented several selections to choose from with information about each one. Bottled prices were moderately priced. Very good menu options and food was excellent. Service was just attentive enough without being disruptive. I think I found a new favorite restaurant.
