Great Restaurant in Upper DuPont

A delightful surprise on Valentine's Day. Cozy interior, great service, good appetizers (try the clam and chicken soup). Steak and Scallop entrees were uniformly delicious. Strongly recommend for lunch or dinner.

Unusual, but very good food. Attentive service. Everything served was fresh and the menu changes frequently to take advantage of seasonal specialties.

Might be strange to highlight the beers, but when we went for lunch we really felt like having a good beer. Lo and behold the owner reeled off a long list of bottled craft beers. I had a great chewy stout - fabulous. The Greek dishes were great too. One large lamb dish and a pork one (although mine a... More

We came here for date night recently and while he thoroughly enjoyed his meal, I rather disliked mine. The wine selection is very limited and our waitress seemed untrained in hospital service. Overall, we still managed to have a good time!

Lovely Greek restaurant with delicious food and some interesting wines from Greek. I thought the menu is a bit of a fusion or American interpretation Greek flair:) The chicken dish was delectable

we were looking forward to this dinner. There were some highs and some lows. The place was busy on the Friday night that we were there. We ordered a bunch of starters and mains as well as desert. Food is presented well and there is attention to plating. Highlights were the pork loin and squash. The crab in phyllo did... More

One of a few greek restaurants in the states that offers authentic greek cuisine beyond the Americanized version from cocktails to apps and dessert. Great service and romantic bar. On of the city's gems.

Tucked away in NW Washington in an unpretentious frontage, this restaurant serves some of the best Greek foods without any pretentiousness. Horta served in pastry was a great balance for the cocktails and the sardines (unusually filleted), the traditional Greek salad and the grilled octopus were classic dishes selected with care, prepared with love and served with flair.

Lovely restaurant with excellent service and food--the restaurant is very comfortable and pleasant--we enjoyed the lamb chops and vegetarian appetizers among the several dishes we tried. The Greek wine was also a pleasant experience.

What a treat this restaurant is! The wait staff is superb, the food very good, and the atmosphere clean and modern. I always appreciate the ability of waiters to make sure my water glass is always full without even noticing their presence. They weren't overly friendly, but they professional and competent. While my main course was only slightly above average,... More
