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. The wait... More

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

From appetizers with fresh herbs and seasoning to main courses like rabbit with pasta - all of it was delicious and service was attentive and gracious. Lots of liquor choices from local DC area beer to Greek wine, we tried it all and had a great time. Families and couples enjoyed the restaurant, cozy and conveniently located.

There is a lovely bar with a mute tv playing. Inside, there are two small dining areas. The whole fish special and the regular whole fish were just delicious and worth the price ($25 and $28). The pita bread came in regular and whole wheat and was wonderfully grilled. We also liked the red peppers and zucchini appetizer and the... More

Right near the DC Hilton on Connecticut Ave is an amazing Greek restaurant which has some truly fine cuisine! We strolled two blocks from the hotel, went to Mourayo and lingered for about 90 minutes. The maitre d' was gracious and the food was just sublime! You won't go wrong!

Mourayo is the best Greek restaurant I've eaten in outside of Crete. The Greek wine served here is excellent and with good reason you wont find Retsina on the wine list. The lamb dishes are my favorite along with the vegetarian appetizer platter which includes beets, beans, grilled vegetables and tzatziki. Mourayo is also one of the few restaurants where... More
