The experience takes one back to the old world with foods that are creative and authentic. The host greeted us at the front door as if we we were dear friends that had traveled a long distance. The dining area is inviting with tables that overlook the busy shopping street. The menu is limited and does not follow the same... More

We had dinner here with friends and really enjoyed our evening at the restaurant. The staff was exceptionally nice and the food was delicious. Two menu highlights were the kavouropita (appetizer) and their dessert menu. Enjoy!

Nice restaurant sandwiched in a row of interesting restaurants and places near Dupont Circle. The food is superlative. I had the moussaka which was everything I had imagined it to be. My husband had chicken which he said was excellent, it came nestled innovatively next to a "nest" of fine strands with cheese buried in it and glazed with honey... More

This restaurant was SUPERB! Excellent, authentic Greek cuisine with an intimate atmosphere. Crispy phyllo pockets (appetizer - hortopitakia), brine cheese (kypriako haloumi me sousami) and the symposium spreads (especially the spicy hummus) were DIVINE! For desserts, Aspasia's Ecstasy may sound disgusting on the menu (strawberries with olives?!?), but it was a spectacular end to the meal!! Wait staff and host... More

Made a reservation here for 4 and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Staff were especially gracious; one in our party lives with diabetes and was beginning to feel low blood sugar after a very long day, so we asked for bread right away, before ordering drinks or anything else, and the waiter brought it immediately. Really good, hot, pita! We shared... More

Delicious food. The menu has a wide variety from traditional to modern takes on Greek food. The service was excellent and our server knowledgeable about the area as well as their menu. A great location street side, a treat to find such fine food in neighborhood restaurant.

I ate at Mourayo in 2012 and on a recent DC visit returned. Friendly service. Great grilled octopus. It's a meal on its own. The veggie platter is also excellent. I'll visit again.

Our favorite Greek restaurant in DC. Our apps were very good--meatballs with tzecki sauce and butternut squash balls with raisin puree. We split a grilled branzino, on the advice of Nick (our personable server), rather than the fish encrusted in salt. Outstanding. We finished the meal with a totally unusual and fabulous dessert--cheese with preserved walnuts and honey. Highly recommend.

After a week in Washington DC eating at many good restaurants we longed for a Greek restaurant that truly served the authentic cuisine. By inquiring from some locals it was recommended that we experience Mourayo. We were absolutely impressed. An intimate setting with a surprisingly wine list and full bar. My appetizer was fresh grilled sardines and my wife's appetizer... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants in the neighborhood. It almost feels as though you are in an Athens neighborhood. The seafood dishes are especially a sophisticated Greek rendition. If you are tired of the 14th street/U-Street hype, the lines, rushed service (where they have no idea who ordered what when they bring food and drinks to the table),... More
