Years ago this was the Corner Bistro and they served Spanish tapas, which is why I went as often as I could. Now they serve small portions of whatever they can think of--tapas they ain't (at least not in the traditional sense), which is why I no longer eat here. The wine selection is wonderful; the atmosphere is fun (though the tables are so close that you have to actively ignore your neighbors' conversation). For the quality of food, which could be better, the prices are too high. Serving small portions and trying to get away with calling them tapas to keep the prices higher is insulting. For those who enjoy bragging about what they paid for the latest trend, this is great; otherwise, Boqueria (in DC) is much better in every way.

I went for lunch and had the calamari (crispy, but not much flavor and tougher than I have had other places), chicken kebab(very good, but served with couscous and not the hummus as listed on the menu), and shrimp in garlic sauce(I was expecting more of a scampi, but got a tomato sauce - OK but not great). Server never checked to see if everything was OK (restaurant was almost empty). When I finished my salad, the server put my used silverware back on the table for the next dish instead of giving me new utensils. I am not sure I would go back.

Great place is exactly what McLean needs. Has the feel of a cozy comfortable European Bistro. The food is excellent and the wine [select]ion is top notch. Hard to get seated on the weekend as it seems many other people feel the same way about this hidden gem.
