“Cheers!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013 via mobile

I really like this place. It is the perfect place to meet up with a friend and have a glass of wine and simply talk and catch up! It is small and can get crowded quickly but the staff handles that well. When the weather is nice you can sit outside and enjoy the weather and people watch. Very reasonable and a very nice selection of wines!

“Surprise tasting experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

My husband and I had just driven and needed to get our barring in Reston as we were trying to figure out our plans for the next few days as we drove south. We found this place and they had a special that evening for a wine tasting. Six glasses for $5. We decided to try it over a cheese plate. The cheese plate was good serving size and offered humboldt fog cheese (which I love). We could have easily shared the plate with two other people. Our wine was 2oz each and we had a really nice server who let us figure out the region, varietal and year as part of our tasting quiz. We really enjoyed the break from driving, relaxing our minds from navigating the highways and traffic that we really enjoyed this place. Our bill was $28 plus tip when all was said and one and we would look to go here for a simple break again.

“pleasant place for a glass of wine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

The Tasting Room is a pleasant place in Reston to sit and have a glass or two of wine. It is a marketing effort of the Boxwood Winery, so much of their selection of wines is from Boxwood. If you're looking for a wide selection of wines, you might be disappointed, but they carry everything Boxwood offers, and a representative sampling of other wines.

I ordered an Italian panini, which, especially with the fries, was a pretty large portion.

The staff on both occasions I've visited was pleasant and attentive.

Both times I've gone at less busy hours. I suspect that the room could be pretty noisy on an active Friday night.

They offer the Boxwood wines at "$10 off the listed price," i.e., off the prices in the room's list--which are about $10 more than the prices direct from the winery. That was irritating to discover.

“small selection”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

For a place that only serves wine, their wine list is tiny and needs to update their white wine selection.

“okie dokie”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

It was a fun night with the novelty of wine dispensing machines and great apps. Service was good but they could have used some more servers the n ight we were in there.
