This was my fourth trip there and it did NOT disappoint. Highly recommend. Everything was delicious, but the desserts were sublime.

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!

Loved this restaurant. Very innovative. Our daughter and son in law live nearby and frequent this restaurant. We met there for a very special evening. Expensive but worth it.

Only negative is that the tables for two are small and are placed very close together, which makes it feel very crowded.

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.

We went for my daughter's Birthday and had great food and drinks. The unique flavor combinations woke up my palette from appetizers to dessert. The lamb was flavorful and perfectly cooked. I am already thinking about going back for more.

As always, an excellent place to bring friends for a fine meal. Conversing was a bit difficult this time, as the music volume was a bit louder than normal. The food took a while longer to arrive than usual, but overall, 8 out of 10.

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!

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.

The food was left something to be desired. The $70 desert that has an incredible description online came out and was nothing as stated on the menu. We asked the waiter and he stated “that is differs slightly each night”. They seem to add any bits and pieces of whatever is leftover at the end of the night to a big bowl and charge you $70 for it 😡
