we had an early dinner. the service was good, but the food was excellent. we had fava bean puree with caramelized onions for an appetizer followed by pork medallions with fig sauce and yoghurt. it was seriously one of the best flavor combinations i have experienced. our waiter was very helpful.

Enjoyed an amazing dinner at Mourayo while visiting DC last month. There are so many great options in this area, it is hard to choose but we were not disappointed by this choice. Started with a plate of my absolute favorite - a plate of hummus and other spreads along with warm pita bread and tasty whole grain bread. We had duck, scallops, lamb and filet mignon dishes, all very good. Ended with a plate of baklava and other bites of sweet cake served with greek yogurt and honey. The baklava with the yogurt and honey was heavenly. Wines by the glass were very good and service throughout was terrific - we had a very patient, friendly and helpful server (she seemed genuinely concerned that we enjoyed our selections) and other staff were efficient without hovering.

Would recommend for business dinner or dinner/lunch with friends.

Every time I go to this restaurant I leave amazed at both the quality of the food and its creativity. I have never had a bad meal here and the service is wonderful. The atmosphere is great to take clients and good friends and the menu is varied and delicious. I could easily list the series of wonderful things that we had but look at the menu and try anything. You will not be disappointed.

It's no wonder that Mourayo has won a 2009 Washingtonian.com "100 Very Best Restaurants" award. The food is wonderful, the restaurant decor is clean, and the prices are moderate. We had the beet salad and grilled zucchini appetizers, each for about $8.00. Each was fairly large, and on their own, would be a suitable appetizer to share between two or even lunch for one.

For the main meals, we had the beef souvlaki and monk fish, about $16 each. Both were delicious and creative. There's a beer, wine and ouzo menu.

If you want to eat there while there are fewer people, try a weekday late lunch.

The appetizers are excellent, the main dishes very good.
If the tables were not as closely packed it would have been much better. The wine selection is also quite updated.
