Conveniently located near Dupont Circle, a quiet, elegant (white tablecloth) and authentic Greek restaurant with a range of appetizers and entrees, with an emphasis on seafood and fish. The sardine appetizer and lamb stew entree were delicious and portions were generous. The only downside was the terrible (to my palate) "authentic" white wine/liquor on special. I couldn't drink it but... More

Ate here last night, what a great place. We ordered off the summer menu, my date got the Mousakas “Stymfalis” and I got the Kotopoulo “Kataifi” - Fabulous. And the wine: 2012 Mitravelas Estate Agiorgitiko Red on Black - WOW! Was it ever good. Nice quiet dinner, service was excellent, everything was perfect. Will be back.

I ate dinner here on a quiet Sunday night and the food was delicious, filling, and reasonably priced. I had their special 3 course summer menu option. The staff was very friendly, and so were the other patrons I spoke to. The decor is very sleek and modern, it doesn't go in for the kitschy Greek decorations that so many... More

Honestly you must try the houlumi, duck mousakka and sardines, black shrimp Ravioli was amazing. Might not be a typical Greek menu but my word they can cook. Ignore the bad reviews this place is exceptional.

We were able to get a last minute reservation and were pleasantly surprised by the nice ambiance, excellent service and delicious food. Interesting Greek wine list; not just the usual retsina. Very solicitous service and qa nice menu selection. Worth a visit.

My wife and I walked past this restaurant for two days before deciding to try it on our last night in Washington DC. We were the first customers in for dinner and such a treat it was! They brought out a basket of flatbread that was nicely speckled with oregano and ent great with the olive oil on the table.... More

An elegant but unpretentious Greek restaurant a short walk from the Churchill Hotel, the Mourayo offers pleasant service and tasty fare, including some yummy vegetarian appetizers (the eggplant is lovely) and a nice selection of wines. We went there for dinner both nights of our recent stay in Washington.

While the food did not meet my expectations, the ambiance and the staff were really good. The waiters worked as a team, so there was never an empty glass in our table, and they were constantly checking up on us to make sure we had everything we needed.
