Nick's Taverna has a wide variety of greek food. Everything I have had to eat there has been delicious. I wish they were open for lunch through out the week.

Nick's Taverna is sort like our local hang out. The food is excellent, and everything tastes homemade. Even the hummus, which is offered for free as an appetizer (like salsa and chips in a Mexican restaurant) i is the best I have ever had. And they have a unique Greek salad that has all sorts of vegetables and feta in... More

We've been to Nick's multiple times since it opened -- through it's various iteration of names -- and always had a good experience. Always reliable and always good food. We returned a few nights ago and everything just "clicked up a notch." From the moment we walked in, and were greeted by a lovely young blonde girl, who couldn't have... More

Nick's Taverna, Ashburn, VA - What a find! In the mood for really good Mediterranean food? Check out Nick's. Great gyros, tabouli was delicious and call ahead take-out service was fast and efficient. Food was just what we were looking for and really hit the spot!

Full bar and many Microbrews to choose from. Had the dolmades and Lamb shank with chili green beens and pita Ate at the bar and was served by Romeo. He went out of his way to explain the menu and point out his favorite dishes. Services was excellent and the food passes the authenticity test. Give it a try!

We are here early on a Friday night and the service was atrocious. The restaurant was half empty, but it took over an hour for our food to arrive. The food itself was only mediocre at best. We were told that the restaurant was in the middle of changing it's menu, but that should not be an excuse for bad... More

I just went again last weekend (Jan 31 2016) and was rather disappointed. Apparently, the restaurant has changed hands or changed staff and, unfortunately, although they are very nice and tried to be accommodating, the staff did not know about Greek food very well. And for some reason they took taramasalata off the menu. That's a cold appetizer made with... More

Wonderful restaurant! I love that they seat you quickly and immediately bring out some authentic hummus and pita chips prior to ordering. They treat you like family here and the food is both delicious and authentic. The pita chips are very unique... nothing you can buy anywhere. I LOVE the saganaki hot appetizer... it's fried cheese fresh from the skillet... More

Based on a friend's recommendation I randomly decided to drop in here on a Saturday night and stumbled on a live one-man acoustic gig. The secret must have been out because droves of people swarmed in as soon as the music began to play. The Greek salad was a 'bit rough, similar to what you'd expect in a bar, I... More

This is a Greek restaurant and I love the food there. It's good Greek food! And the portions are generous. Check before you go, however, as weekdays it does not open until 4:00 pm, and Friday and, I assume, weekends it opens for lunch and later. Anyway, check before you go. You'll love the food!

Nick first opened its doors in March 2007 with owners, Nick Samiotis and his daughter, Eviania Davey, who are no strangers to the restaurant industry. Nick has been a restauranteur for over 35 years, owning and operating multiple restaurants throughout the Northern Virginia region. Eviania grew up in the family restaurants, understanding the business from the bottom up. In July of 2012, Nick and Eviania decided that the Brambleton area, in which Nick's Corner Grill is located, needed something differnet. They decided to close the restaurant for three week, in order to start theses changes. With a completely new cuisine, decor and atmosphere, Nick and Eviania created and re-opened a restaurant that was authentic to Nick's homeland of Greece. Since re-opening, Nick and Eviania couldn't be more happier with the tremendous support and feedback and would like everyone to feel as though their "home" is the customer's home as well.
