“Authentic Diner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

Friendly diner with the traditional menu with a slightly mediterranean twist. The decor is dated but authentic. This is a great diner where you can partake in a meal alone or with friends and not feel rushed to leave. You are bound to find something on the menu that you will love.
Note, bring your own herbal tea bag if you don't like Lipton.

“Outstanding service at Amphora in Vienna, VA”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

Visited Amphora today with a group of friends after a bike ride today in Vienna, VA and the service was truly excellent. From the front desk to our waiter to staff that stopped by our table to check on us, everyone was genuinely friendly and made our breakfast very enjoyable. A big thank you to the wonderful staff who truly seem to care about their customers. If you like friendly service, stop by Amphora for a meal soon.

“Luxury diner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012 via mobile

Both locations are fabulous. We have only tried breakfast and the selections are great. Light and delicious pancakes and a wonderful salmon omelet . The coffee beats any bistro. Take home one of their outstanding pies to make the experience last for days

“Late night breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

The Amphora is a 24 hour restaurant. The only times I have eaten there, were after 'all-night' grad parties for the kids of a very good friend and I helped man some of the game tables. Each time we would roll in about 3:00 A.M. and have breakfast. Service was quick and the food was good. Prices were reasonable. What more could one ask at that time of day?

“In Vienna, not as good as it once was.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

We have frequented the Amphora for many years. Sorry to say it is not what it once was. Seems to be suffering from neglect. Food is so so, upkeep leaves much to be desired. But what can you say it is there all the time and has a large menu
