“Great Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

The staff at Athena Pallas make sure that your dining experience is first rate. We have been coming here for years and enjoy the personal service, the quiet atmosphere (hard to find in the area) and the excellent food.

“Greek food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

A great "find" while walking around the neighborhood near our hotel (Residence Inn Pentagon City). The food was exceptional and well worth the "looks" we received from the regulars who clearly identified us as tourists!

“Great Greek food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

While visiting the DC area with friends we decided to have our last dinner at Athena Pallas. What a good decision that was! Great food, good service. Between us we had the lamb and mouossaka. Both were delicious. We will definitely return to this restaurant the next time we are in the area.

“Excellent choice for dining!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

We saw a lot of cars outside this restaurant so decided it must be worth trying. It was a wise choice! Wide variety of Greek food. Prompt service & pleasant servers. Meals were quite generous in amount and very tasty. My meal of veal casarole did not scrimp on the veal; my wife's spinach in filo roll was so large she had to take some along for later. Very reasonable prices. We highly recommend this restaurant!
