As a north-easterner who moved to VA in the early 90's, I still miss all the great diners in NYC and NJ that are open 24 hours. Amphora compared to the north-east is on par, and true to form, the menu is very large and...More

This restaurant was started many years years ago by Greeks. For many years it had excellent food. For the last few years, however, its food is pretty bad. I ordered Pastichio today, and that was served was a mushy concoction that reeked garlic (which has...More

Way above all other Virginia diners...but not quite as good as many Jersey diners. Now, residents of Eastern Loudoun and Western Fairfax don't have to drive to Amphora's flagship restaurant in Vienna. If you've never been to an Amphora, do go. Try the Gyro Sandwich...yummm!More

I love diners and wanted to love Amphora, but I don't. The servers and management are indifferent/uninterested and the food is less than average. A large menu of wildly different items is the first tip-off that many items are not prepared fresh daily. A diner...More
