“Best After 10 PM”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

Best thing about Amphora is that it's open all the time. Otherwise, it's not exactly a destination restaurant. But if you want an acceptable dinner at midnight, or even just a piece of pie and coffee, then this is where to go. The service is uneven, probably because there is a lot of turnover. There are good standbys, like gyros and burgers, plus a Greek entrée or two, and the sweets can be good, too. It's often the first place I go to after picking up a friend at Dulles airport, arriving after a long, hungry flight.

“Okay but not great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

I'll tell you what turned me off to this place, is that the floors are not clean. The food is just average. However, I know a lot of people who really like it. Just not for me.

“Nice staff, yummy diner type food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2014

I stopped here with three 9 year olds for a quick bite that didn't require a drive thru. They have a children's menu with a large variety of entrees, drink included, and a huge cookie. Breakfast is offered all day which is awesome. My grilled chicken Cobb salad was good, more toppings than lettuce but still yummy. I will come back again to try one of their dinner specials and try to save room for dessert since they have a grand selection.

“Huge menu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2014

I came in for breakfast before a long hike. enjoyed an omelette and potatoes with toast. Good food reasonable prices. The menu includes a very wide variety of cuisine from multiple cultures and if breakfast was a clue it should all be quite good. Very impressive exterior. This is spposed to be the largest diner in the US.
