Celebrated my husbands birthday. Well worth the money and fantastic food. Great service from everyone in the restaurant. Only concern was it did get a little too loud at the bar midway through our meal. There was a special event in the shopping area, which may have contributed to this. You won’t be disappointed and a great kids menu too

We had brunch there on a Sunday with reservations. Service was good. All of the food choices sounded good. We tried the brunch burger and the fried chicken and waffles. Both were very good. Our daughter had the bacon mac and cheese. She liked it a lot and she's a very picky eater. Noise level was a little high but not too bad.

Dined during restaurant week which was a great value. Included all the fav's from menu plus those lovely desserts. Had the salmon and steak from special menu. Salmon was excellent but steak was a bit disappointing. Had it before several times and it was wonderful. Hope it was just because of rush in kitchen on a more busy than usual night. Tried all three of desserts offered and they were outstanding. Couldn't chose a favorite. Have to go back and try again!!

It was truly a transcending experience! We got the Spiced Lamb Flatbread, Chocolate-rubbed Steak and Shrimp and Grits and all were equally delicious. We wrapped up the meal with 3 different desserts that were incomparable especially the passion fruit chocolate. I can't wait to go back for lunch and brunch. The service was also excellent.

Maybe that’s how it is, but food and drinks took along time. We got the wake up calls and server said we had to wait for the espresso to cool down ..... why don’t you guys make espressos in the morning and chill them in the fridge ?

Had brunch there on first time visit. friendly staff, knowledgeable about the menu. Interesting food that tasted great. Desserts were unique, scrumptious, and beautiful. Owner (manager?) noticed everything and was quick to respond when he saw me struggling with a bad knee. Looking forward to going back for Wednesday wine night to taste the dinner menu.

Our server was very knowledgeable about all menu items and provided great recommendations. The desserts are to die for and very cleverly presented. BTW if you like chocolate you’ll love this place.

Food was was very good and prepared with some unique combinations and flair.
Wine list is limited but with some interesting choices that aren't the same cut and paste you see at many restaurants these days. Cocktails and desserts are the real stars here. Many desserts are suitable for sharing and are an excellent combination of flavors, textures and styles. Had a fair amount of Virginia wines listed which is always nice to see.

I came here with 3 of my friends to celebrate a birthday. My initial thoughts of this place were quite negative when we waited to be seated at 7:30 pm with a 7 pm reservation. We first arrived at the small, crowded entrance with no one asking to help us. When I told them we had a 7 pm reservation, we waited and were told that the table was going to be ready soon. Another 15 minutes or so and the same thing. What made it worse was that the front entry way was small and to serve the outside, the server had to go through the front door (I do understand that the design is no fault of the restaurant). After waiting in a somewhat crowded area for half an hour made it more annoying. However, when we were finally seated, it was acknowledged that we had to wait and we were served a complimentary appetizer. The rest of the dinner went well as the food and drinks were excellent as we hoped (we came here because we expected the food and drinks to be of the same quality of Coco Sala, which had closed in DC). Despite the rocky start of meal, we had an overall good experience.

The Conche is my go-to for dinner out- friends, special occasions, or a family meal. It has excellent options for kids, and they take special care for anyone with dietary needs or allergies. The waitstaff is professional and genuinely nice. The food is expertly crafted and delicious. Nice range of food and prices.

Be sure to try a cocktail! There is even a cocktail class that is fun and informative. Oh, and then there are the famous desserts! Save room for some chocolate!

This restaurant is hands down one of my favorite restaurants in Northern VA.

You absolutely must try the following:

Short rib entree that started out as appetizer and graduated to an entree in the last few months.

Lamb flatbread that is bursting with flavor & spices

Dessert: Opalys or Manjari

I had high expectations but was slightly disappointed. Ambiance was nice and the food was good but too many layers of ingredients...it was overkill. We ordered the braised short ribs and rib eye and the meal came smothered in so much sauce and presentation the food was an afterthought. Same with the desert. The waiter announced every ingredient (so unnecessary as it was listed on the menu and besides we could not hear him over the noise level). I hope they can take the feedback and tone done the presentation and just let good food speak for itself. Sometimes less is best.
