We usually end up here for bruch or lunch. It reminds me of the New Jersey diners. The menu is page after page after page. Everything from classic American dishes to Greek and Italian. My favorite is the classic club sandwich with FF.

Amphora is our go-to restaurant for breakfast. The service is excellent and the food is wonderful. Business people tend to meet in the restaurant also. It has a nice atmosphere. We have tried lunch with our little grandson and it was a hit. I recommend Amphora.

You have to love the story of Louis Cholakis and George Bilidas. It's the American Dream. Emigrate from Greece in the 1950's. No money. Work washing dishes in a restaurant so you get at least one meal a day. Then save up and open up your own place in 1962. Now you own several restaurants, bakeries, real estate - it's... More

What a great surprise. Our waitress Jackie was fantastic! Friendly and helpful she served us a great brunch. The poached eggs in the eggs Halifax were perfectly cooked and the smoked salmon wasn't overly salted. The French Toast was sweet without being a sledgehammer of sugar. Also couldn't be brunch without some amazing homemade corned beef hash. This was my... More

This "diner" has been a favorite for many years. As a "local" I ate there regularly. Now, whenever I am visiting NOVA, it is a place to have a good meal.

I have enjoyed this restaurant on three different levels, all excellent. As a Herndon Rotarian, I have eaten there once a week for over four years. I have also dined there on several occasions. Third, the restaurant recently catered a social function. The service has been wonderful. The food excellent. The environment friendly. I strongly recommend the catering service! I... More

We heard great reviews and recommendations about this place. The menu was very large and they have everything you might want. We were there for breakfast and I had the French toast. It was a little over cooked on the outside and under cooked on the inside. Service was fast and friendly. I just wished the food was as good... More

I stopped by for a late dinner at this Greek-American restaurant. The place had a modern wood-themed decor, was clean, and the waitstaff were extremely attentive, friendly, and helpful with the menu. I had the Caesar salad, which was delicious. They brought special biscuits to the table, and these were baked with a unique, delicious taste. The meatloaf I ordered... More

I left extra early for a pickup at Dulles and went for breakfast at Amphora Diner in Herndon. I was here before 5AM. There were only a few of us here. It's a large but well decorated restaurant. The service was good and the menu extensive. I had the less than healthy Fried Chicken Steak with eggs, toast and hash... More

The food was great--my first experience with Greek food. The service was slow, and the waiter seemed a little disinterested. Overall, I would go back.
