    This is the third time I have met friends here when I’ve come into town. Food is good, service is great, and the ambiance is pleasing. We always have a good time and in fact yesterday we closed the place down. The diablos shrimp and calamari are my favorites. Am unable to drink wine but the list is extensive and the bar service was good as well. Brian was our waiter and was very attentive. Will continue to patronize this establishment.

    Dear ACGreene, What a pleasure to receive your high praise and score! We cannot think of a higher compliment than a return visit, and we are honored to know we have become your go-to dining spot when you are in town. We agree that our Diablos shrimp and calamari are must-haves, and Brian will be glad to know he enhanced your most recent visit with friends. We look forward to seeing you again soon!

    The service is always impeccable. Friendly, discrete but always available when you need something. The food and drinks are fresh and delicious. The table spacing makes you feel like you have privacy and you can actually talk to your table mates without yelling over too much noise or music. Love that they have vegan and gluten free options, there's something for everyone. Can't recommend enough.

    Hello BeaB, Thank you for allowing us to serve you with the attentive yet noninvasive touch we are known for here at Smashing Grapes.

    Dined for a last minute lunch for graduation celebration. Brunch was being served and the selection of food and drink was wonderful. The atmosphere was very nice with soothing music and cool temperatures from the sweltering heat. Our server was spot on with suggestions, friendliness, and attention to our needs. Will definitely return.

    Meh. As a wine lover, I enjoy the concept of Smashing Grapes and have visited many times to enjoy its well-curated menu and wine choices (albeit given the proximity, they could stand to adopt more of the award-winning VA wines). Nonetheless, the Sunday brunch missed the mark for me. Coming out of a pandemic, we embraced the self-serve brunch concept with hesitation and unfortunately, some of our cleanliness concerns were founded. I found a hair on my cake and somehow we ended up with several ants on our table. In addition, the food on the buffet line was just not very good. Their flavor and presentation were lacking and they needed to be refreshed more often. I added extra points for the impeccable service by our server, Seneca, and the amazing work of the chefs at the pasta/omelette station. If I were to return, I would likely only order from there and maybe grab some shrimp cocktail from the raw bar.

    Smashing Grapes - GambrillsResponded 3 days ago

    Dear Kay, We appreciate your thoughtful and thorough review. We value your opinion as a wine lover and thank you for joining us on so many occasions. Thank you for taking a chance on our brunch buffet, and we take your concerns to heart. Seneca will learn of your kind words as well as our talent at our paste and omelet station. We hope to welcome you back through our doors soon. Warm regards, The Leadership Team at Smashing Grapes Gambrills

    I've been to other locations and enjoyed my meal. However, all 4 of us were highly disappointed in our food/experience. Right from the beginning the waitress greeted us with "let me tell you what we don't have"! At 8pm on Saturday several key dishes were not available. Then when we received the food we did order it was poorly prepared. The branzino was overcooked and crispy, the calamari had four actual pieces of calamari surrounded by onion straws, the crostinis were completely burnt on the bottom and the broccolini was under cooked with no flavor. I'm posting this review because after all of this the manager came to our table and made excuses instead of offering a solution. The highlights were the live jazz, the fries and smashing wings!

    Dear guest, Thank you for sharing your candid feedback with us. What you describe is not on par with a Smashing Grapes experience, and we hope you can accept our apologies.

    The food was great but the service was a bit slow. It was packed so I understand that might have something to do with that. My only dissatisfaction was being charged $5 for 2 hard boiled eggs that my daughter requested. Overall, the food and drinks was great.

    We had the Sunday buffet. The service was good. The cost of the brunch in comparison to other restaurants was way too expensive. The food was good—a nice temperature—but it wasn’t great. There was no “specialty” food items that one would say that they have to go back to Smashing Grapes to try again. The tongs used were stiff and hard to use. We would not go back to this restaurant for the brunch again.

    The food was DELICIOUS. Even being big eaters, though, we don’t feel we ate enough to justify $55/pp. If the $55 included basic mimosas or anything other than water, it would be an amazing value. 10/10 would go again, though- only for special occasions.

    To our surprise, the day we visited was the first day that the Gambrills location was offering a Sunday brunch. There was a pretty nice selection of menu options, however, what was missing was a Belgian waffle station! Also, their website needs to be updated to reflect the brunch pricing. I wasn't expecting to pay $55+tax but it was well worth it!

    I have been to this location so many times. However on this night (my birthday) the food wasn’t what I know them to be. My guest didn’t enjoy their meals, drinks were not even 4 Oz but masked with so much ice. My food edible…I had to send it back to have the master chef redo my order, the taste was the same the presentation much better. I will say mgt attempted to resolve my issues, so that I truly appreciated. I’ll give them a few months to work out their kinks, because this was one of my favorite spots.

    We were greeted and seated in good time as soon as we arrived. The host recommended great drinks and our waiter took our drink orders right away along with our appetizer order. The food recommendations from the waiter were on point and he was very pleasant the whole time. The food to us in good time and was delicious. I can say the same about the dessert, too. It was a great time and I’d love to go back.

    This place was great! The food and portions were right on point, and our server Ryan was excellent in giving us all kinds of information about the resturant, the flare to the menu, and provided us with some of the best service we had in the area!! We have a new favorite spot!!

    Food was delicious although I feel it’s a little overpriced for the area.

    I have given this place (both locations) plenty of chances, and the only thing consistent about them is an overwhelming sense of disappointment. It starts with arrival - if you have a reservation, you shouldn’t be made to wait 10-15 minutes while they prepare your table. Maybe at a high end venue, but not at a casual place in a strip mall. There is also significant disconnect between the kitchen and the bar. I have visited pre-, mid-, and post- COVID, and I have NEVER gotten my food and my drinks at the same time. The kitchen seems to be operating at rapid fire pace, while the bar just doesn’t seem to care. I’ve had to ask a “management-type” person numerous times to check on my drink order. As a wine bar, you’d think they would want to optimize your drinking (and drink choice) experience, but apparently not. The wait staff is lackadaisical at best, which is really dumb, since a good bar bill usually translates to a good tip. As for the food, it is mediocre at best. Overcooked (I shouldn’t need a steak knife to eat a piece of very stiff salmon), under impressive, and too cute for its own good. Since you’re parched from not having your drink, it’s overall not a very pleasant experience.

    We had reservations for 5:15. Sat by 5:40. No big deal except once sat at 5:40 we weren’t even waited on till close to 6. Then we were brought bread, we asked for silverware and then finally got our drinks and silverware at 6:20. After all that our waitress seemed to redeem herself and was fine but it was definitely a rough start
