It was our first time visiting The Wine House but it won’t be our last! We had an excellent meal and our waitress helped us to pick out a bottle of wine that we both enjoyed.
Whether we come for lunch or dinner it is excellent as per usual.
nice bistro tucked in a upscale open shopping mall in downtown Fairfax, a hidden gem!
Great food; all dishes were great. The special lunch menu was of tremendous value.The service was fantastic, server was friendly and understanding. The ambience was great. I had a visitor from California, she loved it!
We absolutely love the wine house! Always consistent great food! Would love to see additional appetizers on the menu.
Great food and great service. Free public parking is adjacent to the restaurant. In nice weather they also have a nice outdoor dining area.
The food is consistently good. The kitchen struggled to keep up with orders, but the restaurant did the right thing by comping some food after a very long delay.
The food was great. The service was outstanding. Our guests were highly impressed. Another excuse to go back. 😊
Food was way below average on this visit. I ordered the lamb chops and it was not as good as previous times. Definitely looks like the lamb was microwaved to cook fast then threw on the grill afterward. Lamb did not taste like it was grilled like previous visits. Very disappointed in the food on this visit. The service and everything else were good.
Hi Mike, my father was a sheep and cattle farmer on a 7,000 acre farm in New Zealand, as was his father. The New Zealand lamb on the menu has never and will never go in a microwave, in-fact in our 13th year we have never had a microwave in the kitchen and will never. We have the same lamb product and the gentleman who cooked it has been cooking that lamb for 13 years in the kitchen. The only thing I can think of is that it was plated straight out of the oven and not given time to rest.
Great experience. It is my new go to for a sit down lunch with friends.
Our food was very good as well as the atmosphere. I enjoyed my meal of short ribs & a glass of Cotes du Rhone. My husband & I do come fairly often.
Awesome food and ambiance! Really enjoyed the organic burger and wine.
We always have a great time at Wine House. The service is fantastic. The food and wine are amazing. Love it there!
Always a great experience at The Wine House! My go to place.
A perfect outside dinner with great wine, food and service.
Always a wonderful experience. Delicious meal, great wine selection and attentive and knowledgeable staff.
This is the third time I have celebrated my birthday here. Service was a little slow but they are probably understaffed like everyone else these days. And it wasn’t bad, just a little slow. Very friendly. The food was excellent as always. I had the shrimp and grits and my husband had the burger. Everything was delicious. We have also been for mussels on Mondays and those are excellent too. A favorite spot for sure.
We both had seafood; cod for me; salmon for my wife. Both meals very good. My wine ( Sancere) was excellent. Service was prompt and friendly. A good place to dine and a neighborhood gem.
We had an outstanding experience at The Wine Shop and enjoyed great food, service, and an informative wine sampling class. You really can't go wrong for brunch at this establishment.
The whole lunch was lovely. We selected from the pre fixed menu. There were a lot of choices. We will be back.
Great wine, cuisine and ambiance! I’m going back again!
Excellent restaurant, food outstanding, great choices of wine.
Although I am puzzled that when I made the reservation they ask if it is for a special occasion and I answered yes “anniversary”, yet know one even mentioned or said anything about our anniversary? So why ask at all to begin with?
Service is good, but could be a little more friendly.
Delicious food and great service.
Outdoor patio seating with attentive service. We will return!
My husband and I absolutely loved The Wine House. I brought him there as a surprise to celebrate his new job. I had hoped to get an “I like this place; I would come back.” from my husband but I got so much more. The food was delicious, the flight was generous, our waitress Shannon was a sweetheart, and Kevin, the Master Sommelier, reawakened my husband’s interest in learning more about wine. We look forward to our next visit.
We always have a great time at Wine House. Great food, great wine, great people!
Best brunch in the area. Fixed price or ala carte options.
Food was excellent! Lots of wine choices to order and to buy to take home. Will definitely go again.
Great service, good was amazing and a great price combo for lunch! Was given a wonderful suggestion for wine and enjoyed ourselves all afternoon.
Beautiful intimate space allowed a wonderful time with my girls. Food was amazing! The ahi tuna appetizer was wonderful as well as the shrimp appetizer. My girl’s cod was wonderful plated and tasted amazing. And the toasted baguette with the spreads was a great treat. But the wine! My goodness! Definitely will be a regular meet up spot with the ladies!
An absolutely amazing experience! Everything is curated for the perfect wine-fueled evening. Kevin had exceptional recommendations to accompany our unique tastes and dishes. It was my first time there, and I'm looking forward to several visits in the future.
Theresa - our favorite waitress was WONDERFUL, as always! Such a NICE host for the restaurant, always cheerful and upbeat!
Food was awesome too!
Wonderful seafood, salads and charcuterie. Excellent wine selection.
Great outdoor seating.
My favorite place to go for wine and food. Great service and good people.
Our server Tyler was great. Friendly, quick, knowledgeable. It was a beautiful night, the food was perfectly done and creative, and we enjoyed that we were able to take home what little of the Bordeaux was left at the end of our meal. Ambiance only gets a 3/5 because our conversation was interrupted multiple times by outbursts from an intoxicated guest at another table. Otherwise it was pretty much perfect.
Wine Flight night is always fun and informative. The food and service are excellent as always!
We had to wait about 10 minutes past our reservation time for a table but that's not too bad for a Saturday night. Our server was excellent, knowledgeable and attentive. All our food was very good from starters to entree's to dessert.
As usual the food, wine and accommodations are excellent.
We were told that the kitchen was overwhelmed and our food would be late. But that was not an issue for me as I did not think they were late. The albarino wine seemed to have been opened a while back and was acidic.
The crostini that came with the gazpacho soup was burnt and I had to cut the burnt piece off with force and break other pieces and put it in the soup so that it would soften -- but the taste of what was on the crostini was gone. I think the crostini was made beforehand and when got to the table it was old and in poor condition and it was like a cardboard.
The filet mignon was ok, but lacked flavor. However, the quality of meat was good. The asparagus was good but a tiny bit overcooked.
The bread pudding would have been good, if the top part was not burnt.
There were limited wine selection by the glass for a place that calls itself Winehouse.
I like to think that this was a one off. But for the price they charge, it was not worth it and I could do better elsewhere.
