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.

I had been a shopper at the Curious Grape for several years when it was a wine and cheese shop, purchasing a wonderful 10-year-old Port on numerous occasions, frequently adding a couple of bottles of wine as well as cheese. I was, therefore, looking forward to the new and expanded location, a couple of blocks away from the original location,... More

I came here today with a friend after having lunch at another venue. We had coffee and dessert here and enjoyed both immensely. The desserts are sumptuous and reasonably priced! The service was slow here today and I really cannot make too much out of this since this was my first visit. The location in Shirlington near the Carlyle Grand... More

First time in this delightful restaurant worth the thirty miles round trip. We were immediately greeted at the door by the hostess and seated with a server ready to greet us and pour water. We shared a summer salad of heirloom tomatoes, mozzarella, nectarine chunks, plum pieces, and pine nuts in an almost creamy basil vinaigrette - very tasty! Our... More

Offers interesting seasonal menu and extensive wine offerings. Eclectic menu. If your a tad adventurous in your menu selections give a try. May not be the best choice for a meat and potatoes kind of guy

This place is a very good place to eat. However, I believe their are much better values around the corner! I will eat here again, but only if everything else in Shirlington is booked up!

If The Curious Grape were on the main street of Shirlington, it would be packed every night.But, it's just around the corner from the main "restaurant row". Last night was our third visit. Go now and get their seasonal appetizer- heirloom tomato and mozzarella salad with mint pesto. So fabulous!! Friendly, intelligent service. Nice menu with just enough choices. Great... More
