      When I first came to northern Virginia last year, a good friend took me to Amphora for dinner, and I was hooked. I have been to the Vienna location at least a dozen times, with friends and family from out of town, and to the Herndon location as well. My favorite waiter in Vienna is Anup, and whenever I have gone there I have been treated like family. The food is always wonderful, the portions large, and the staff are all professional, but very friendly. I don't think you can go wrong by eating at Amphora!

      My 5 star rating is based upon this being a "Diner" as opposed to a restaurant. Amphora is probably the best diner I've eaten at. I've eaten there numerous times over the years and they were always alright. In the last year or so I have seen some major positive changes.

      The servers are very attentive and the food is excellent! The vegetables and salads are always very fresh. Entrees are cooked to perfection and well seasoned. Oh, and entrees arrive hot, like they are supposed to (one of my pet peeves that to many restaurants fail at). Even their higher-end dishes are good. Last week I brought my parents(who live near Amphora) to show them the positive changes and I ordered the Steak Diane. My parents were very impressed with the overall flavor and texture. They were also very pleasantly surprised at the salad that came with the meal (for $1 extra you can upgrade to a greek or caesar salad). They got Mousaka and the grilled vegetable platter. Bothe were very pleased with their meals.

      The decor does need to be updated, but they are slowly undergoing renovations. The main thing is that the owners want to elevate Amphora to a new level and they are taking the necessary steps and trying really hard. The effort shows in everything they do. Even the mashed potatoes are impressively home-made. Food is always tasty, but never greasy or fatty.

      A friend of mine took me for lunch today at Amphora Restaurant at Vienna, Virginia. She is a regular customer of Amphora and was bragging about delicious meals, good selection of food and customer service.I must stay after our lunch the experience I had at Amphora was impressive from the attentiveness of the staff, friendly atmosphere, good food presentation and delicious meal. It was a 5-star experience. I would definitely recommend Amphora to my friends and will visit them soon.

      I have been going to the Amphora restaurant for years. The food is always very good, the menu is very extensive, just about everyone will find something they like, the service is very good. The combination of quality and price can not be beat.

      We have been going to Amphora's at least once a month for almost 15 years. Prices are reasonable, the service is very good, the food selection extensive, and food quality is outstanding. I love the Prime Rib special ($17.95 includes soup, salad, veggies & side). And the burgers are OUTSTANDING.

      The only down side is that the interior appears a bit dated, although they are (albeit slowly) renovating the Vienna location, hopefully to make it appear more like the very sharp-looking Herndon location.

      All-in-all, Amphora is an excellent choice for a regular family meal.

      They have never let us down for breakfast and their Eggs Benedict are wonderful. They have the best cakes that you can call ahead and order and decorated as you wish.

      The first and best thing about amphora is the friendliness. As soon as you walk in, you are greeted with a big smile and help with anything you need. The atmosphere of the restaurant alone is great. A group of my co-workers and I go there often after work to hang out, grab a bite to eat or a few drinks. Amphora has always been associated with good food, good times, and good prices.

      A friend of mine suggested going to dinner at Amphora, a Greek restaurant. I read reviews on other websites and was, as a result, a little scared to go to Amphora. BUT I had a good experience at the restaurant. The Greek quesadillas, salmon, lamb, and two desserts tasted good. Our waiter also did a good job. Although a guest of ours failed to show up and caused us to sit there for 30 minutes before ordering, our waiter was understanding. He was friendly and served us promptly (although he dropped dishes and silverware twice). I would return to Amphora, as they have some good items on their menu, and the service is good. Also, the restaurant looks old-fashioned but is not dirty or in poor condition. The restaurant had sufficient parking and is accessible via bus routes.

      I love going to Amphora's. Their bakery is AMAZING and makes excellent birthday cakes. They have a wide selection of Greek food (my mom's favorite is the moussaka) and I love the Mediterranean Trio appetizer. Highly recommended! It's a cute diner although the service is not always super.

      What the heck happened to this once fabulous diner????

      When you see a once bustling restaurant with nobody in it at 6pm on a Saturday or Sunday evening, you know something is wrong.

      Our salad was sadly wilted, tiny and not great. Greek food tasted like leftovers, not a large assortment of desserts in the evening when diners would naturally want dessert (duh)!
      -Food took 45 minutes to come to the table, (when it was not busy at all)
      Russian speaking waitresses rude & uncaring- both times we tried this restaurant recently 8 months apart. (we used to be regular patrons of this restaurant 2-3x per month). We tipped generously anyway (20%) because we felt sorry for the Waitress -she looked so miserable with her job.

      PROS: The Amphora bakery next door, to take home pastries. -Come early though because the best ones are gone by noon on the weekends!
      CONS: The food, & the wait staff is more interested in hanging out with each other speaking Russian, and sitting in the booths that attending to their customers.

      Please rate this guide helpful if you liked it. Thanks!

      Amphora's has always been the place where my husband and I go for a late at night dinner. The location is convenient to our house and Wolf Trap (where we volunteer). The food is good and there are plenty of options, whether you want breakfast food, vegetarian dishes, typical Greek fare, etc. The only negative I have to say is that, if you eat your food there, expect to be sitting for a long time. It takes awhile to get your food. I don't know why it takes so long; if you phone ahead, you can have your food ready in 10 minutes, compared to the 20-30 you'll find if you eat there.
