I ate at Mourayo in 2012 and on a recent DC visit returned. Friendly service. Great grilled octopus. It's a meal on its own. The veggie platter is also excellent. I'll visit again.

Our favorite Greek restaurant in DC. Our apps were very good--meatballs with tzecki sauce and butternut squash balls with raisin puree. We split a grilled branzino, on the advice of Nick (our personable server), rather than the fish encrusted in salt. Outstanding. We finished the meal with a totally unusual and fabulous dessert--cheese with preserved walnuts and honey. Highly recommend.

After a week in Washington DC eating at many good restaurants we longed for a Greek restaurant that truly served the authentic cuisine. By inquiring from some locals it was recommended that we experience Mourayo. We were absolutely impressed. An intimate setting with a surprisingly wine list and full bar. My appetizer was fresh grilled sardines and my wife's appetizer... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants in the neighborhood. It almost feels as though you are in an Athens neighborhood. The seafood dishes are especially a sophisticated Greek rendition. If you are tired of the 14th street/U-Street hype, the lines, rushed service (where they have no idea who ordered what when they bring food and drinks to the table),... More

A simple restaurant with good Greek food. I had crabmeat in a phyllo for starter and it was ok...A bit too much cheese. For the main course had their "signature " dish of duck moussaka. It was tasty but slightly over cooked and dry. Limited choices for wine by the glass and even more limited choices of beer.

I rated this restaurant average due a server loudly cussing at the bartender. After traveling all over the world and working in a restaurant as a teenager, I have never seen restaurant employees exhibiting such unprofessional behavior. The food was very good, but the atmosphere was ruined by the staff. You can't even enjoy a meal today with witnessing the... More

We went to Mourayo at the recommendation of a friend of my business partner. Our experience was outstanding in every respect. The service was prompt and very helpful. The menu included an attractive array of choices, all of which were prepared with fresh ingredients and tasted great. We had an octopus appetizer and a special fresh fish entree that was... More

Really great Greek food, upscale approach, but service is quite slow. Unusually good for Greek food.

We had just flown in from the UK so we're not looking for anything special but this was special. Try the Pythagoras pork, delicious! The wine we had was so so though
