Food was amazing as well ad service. Will be going back again. The ribeye was delicious and I know it’s kind of nonsense to order fries at a nice restaurant like this, but the garlic parmesan fries was amazing, we ordered two servings! For drinks, I had to get the moussetache, really good!! And the allure was really good to, champagne like. For dessert, I shared the manjari, if you enjoy intense chocolate, it’s definitely worth it

This is one of our favorite "special" restaurants in the area. It feels like a restaurant you'd have to travel to D.C. to visit, but it's great to have a place that's this unique and delicious so close to home.

Had dinner here for my birthday. Excellent cocktails, food and service. It is a small space so it was a little cramped.

Every dish incorporates chocolate in some way. The chocolate is not overpowering. Very light touch with it which I was happy about. My scallops were encrusted with cocoa nibs which gave a nutty flavor to the dish. The cauliflower purée also incorporated white chocolate which just gave the purée a creamier texture. My husband’s short ribs had a chocolate rub and were so tender they fell apart as soon as the fork hit them. All the food was divine. Of course the desserts were delectable as well, as expected for a place known for their chocolate.

Food was excellent

My only real complaint is the very noisy environment. Lots of hard surfaces and creating a din Having a fine meal in a noisy restaurant takes away from the experience. Maybe they can get someone to help deaden the sound

Great food and service. Didn't know something like this existed in Leesburg. The rack of lamb and shrimp and grits were delicious. The waiter was awesome and the overall experience was great. We will be coming back.

The service on our first visit was excellent. This time our party of four got our meals about ten minutes apart. The Caesar salad was delicious. The short ribs over cooked with a gravy that was overwhelming.

Food was delicious but very small portions. Service was very slow when we went- not the waiters fault. They just didn’t expect a crowd. Taste was amazing though.

Excellent meal. Food was very good. Dessert was small in portion size but also excellent. Would like to get a small bit of bread with the meal - only suggestion for this restaurant. We went for restaurant week so the value was good for the 3 course meal.

The food quality and presentation is excellent. Cocktails are a work of art. If you live within range you should definitely visit The Conche. A DC quality dining experience, but found locally.

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.

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.
