“Very hungry”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014

If you want to feel a little bit of Mediterranean spirit and at the same time you love Greek food (Tzatziki, Gyros, Souvlaki), than Zorba's cafe is the place for you. The place was not crowded when we arrived ( Brunch time) , and we picked up our food very quickly. Food was delicious and at acceptable price. We defenetly recommend it.

“Good for a quick lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2013

If you want to go somewhere and get waited on, this is not the place. There is counter service where you order and then wait for them to call your number. It was very busy the day we went there, but the line moved pretty fast. The offerings were standard Greek lunch, nothing special. All of the food we had was very tasty and nobody at the table had any complaints. I definitely recommend this place for lunch, but I'm not sure about dinner, unless you just want something quick.

“Fun Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2013

I was part of a very large group that ate dinner at Zorbas. Since there were 44 in our group, they had prepared a buffet with a sampling of Greek foods just for us. They had a great selection of meats and Mediterranean foods already laid out for us when we arrived. I noticed the the salad, chicken, and meat was very quickly scooped up. As this was a group of college students (only a handful of us were older students) many of them were hesitant about trying Greek food, but I loved everything I had! They wouldn't even try the stuffed grape leaves, but I did and they were very good. Once a couple students tried the baklava and liked it, it was also quickly devoured. It was excellent. I would go back again if I were to visit D.C. with my husband.

“Where's the service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2013

We were looking forward to Greek food but felt foolish when we showed up at Zorba's, dressed up and expecting a fine dining experience. Instead we felt like we were at a mall food court. Having to order our food at an assembly-line counter was so disappointing and the food tasted factory-produced. Won't be back.
