    I have never eaten or had wine here but they make a nice latte. Almond is the best!

    Dinner staff is extremely attentive to all needs. Food is way above average with creative dishes, but get full portions since half sizes are more lunch appropriate. Sides can feed 2-3.

    Delicious food and great wines. Get the half portions of appetizers, they are huge. Recommend the mushroom couscous and fried brussell sprouts apps. Yummy.

    Outstanding picks: Fiddlehead and shaved asparagus salad, grilled ramps with aioli, lamb chop with sour cherry gastrique and fennel farro, and unexpectedly delicious coffee for an after-dinner treat.

    Grab a seat at the bar! Wonderful service, good wine selection, and equally good food.

    "Part-wine shop, part-retail store (cheese counter, coffee bar... and gourmet condiments) and part-restaurant, this Shirlington concept delivers food far superior that its casual, shop-here decor."

    Order a half portion of an entree, then add a side: about the same amount of food as a full order but more variety for a few $ less. Also: thoughtful beer selection.

    Best drip coffee in Shirlington. They also hand out free coffee in the mornings.

    Glass of Temperillo with fruit and cheese tray to die for.... Smoky Blue / Drunk in Goat and a special requested secret cheese. :-)

    Best staff! Wonderful food and healthy! Food and wine pairings! Eaten several times never felt rushed through meal or left bloated! EVERYTHING is delicious! Bon apetit!

    Food was okay but a bit overpriced. And the cook has horrible customer service skills

    The Vietnamese-spiced pork bolognese is just divine.

    "Most plates are available in full or half portions, with the latter generous enough for a meal. The waitstaff is sweet, quick with wine knowledge and happy to serve you." - November 2012 Issue

    "… the Curious Grape features a 10-seat wine bar, multiple dining rooms and a guide-like menu that matches each dish with wine tips." - October 2012 Issue

    Tried the scallops and loved every bite. Great food and wine selections. If you like a Chardonnay then you will not be disappointed.

  • Tasting Table

    Pair a pour of the 2010 Cherrier Les Cailloux with the scallops in vanilla beurre blanc over black rice, which is simmered in coconut water, giving the dish a tropical touch: Read more

    Try a pastry w/a selection from the coffee bar for breakfast! It's curiously great at the Curious Grape!

    The nicest wine bar and shop in Northern Virgina. Wine section is broad and the menu choices in the restaurant are excellent.

    @Curious Grape you can taste 2-3 wines FREE while shopping for someone of the world’s finest wines. Try the mild cheddar cheese with Blanc de Blancs Champagne.
