Group of 8 arrived on time for 7:00 reservation on a Saturday night. Restaurant was packed. After about 5 minutes we were seated in the requested area. About 15 minutes later we got water and waitress took our drink and food orders. One hour after arrival, we still didn't have our wine, despite several requests. They didn't come until we... More

Six of us had dinner at the Curious Grape. The menu has a nice range of options, with a few unusual offerings. All the food was very tasty and nicely prepared. The presentation on all dishes was excellent. The service was friendly, but inefficient and it took asking more than once to get some things. Quite a surprise for such... More

Went to this restaurant with a Groupon as it looked interesting. Lovely location, though parking was difficult. The food was excellent - the flavors paired together so well. I will definitely go back. It would have had a 5/5 but I feel it is a little pricey. Excellent service too - great place.

If you're tired of eating the same ole same ole at Sunday brunch, go to Curious Grape in Shirlington. A group gathered there on Sunday to celebrate a birthday and the food and service were excellent! We were placed in a semi-private area so we wouldn't disturb or be disturbed. The menu choices make selection tough, so we all decided... More

This is one of those restaurants that spends a lot of time writing the menu, very descriptive and enticing. For the most part the food lives up to the menu, interesting and exotic. The presentation is very good as is the waitstaff. Can't figure out why the restaurant isn't busier, we were there on a Saturday at lunch, but it... More

We have been to CG numerous times since we live nearby. While it is kind of pricy, it is a great place to go for a treat. If you like Brussels sprouts, theirs are to die for. We get them each time. Also like the salads and the amazing desserts. My husband is really into wine and likes it a... More

I love this place because they have amazing fair prices wines. Menu changes regularly so you will always be surprised with something new. I do have to say that from my Food and Beverage perspective this place lacks in management presence and quality of china. All wine glasses were served to me and my party unpolished and very dirty.

First time here for dinner, have enjoyed coffee and pastries and lunch. We were greeted warmly, seated at nice table, and our waiter immediately appeared. The service here is wonderful and some of the bigger name restaurants could take lessons. My companion dropped a knife and it was immediately replaced without asking. The food is fresh, creative and delicious. We... More

Delicious food, excellent wine and fantastic customer service. They offer small plates which is nice since we got there late for dinner. It was a wonderful experience and we'll be back.
