Unique and DeliciousCreative takes on Greek recipes and friendly knowledgeable service made a thoughtful fun evening5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMNice food and restaurantHad a dinner of 3 in the restaurant. Food is very good and relatively inexpensive. They ran out of 1 special right before we arrived, but overall it's very nice. It's not very loud, so if you want to have a conversation there, it is totally possible.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious Greek CuisineThe cuisine there is very very very good! Outstanding and very traditional, with some very unusual choices of ancient Greek recipes.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOUTSTANDING OCTOPUS!The grilled calamari had the tastiest sauce - I would recommend it in a heartbeat as an appetizer. Moussaka and grilled octopus with pureed fava beans - JUST OUTSTANDING!!! We love this restaurant because of the food, the service and the ambiance - and it is just around the corner from us when we are in DC :-)5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMMade dinner of the appetizers.Made dinner of the appetizers. Everything was superb. Fantastic service, too. And a nice quiet corner for conversation.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreek food as it should be served..This is the most original Greek food I have tasted outside the old country. Branzino in Salt Crust is the most succulent fish you can imagine, the octopus in it's own ink is as beautiful as it tastes and their signature dish of pork filets with manouri cheese and figs remains as exciting to the taste buds as when I first went to this restaurant years ago. They have since enlarged their dining room a little while ago and it is a bit quieter in the newer part than in the jam packed older part of the restaurant. Highly recommend this place if you truly want to sample a little piece of Greece. Needless to say, the wines are all from Greece and terrific!5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMOPA!Great Greek food, creative and flavorful. Knowledgeable staff to navigate the Greek wine list. Second visit for us.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMOnce again a pleasant experienceOnce again a pleasant experience in dining. We brought 2 other couples with us and they loved it as well!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMMourayo felt like a nice,Mourayo felt like a nice, cozy, neighborhood restaurant but with tastey Greek food and a wonderful location in Dupont. The lighting was dimmed a bit, and the total number of tables isn't that many, so it's a great place to go on a date or catch up with a friend. It is probably not a great fit for a more happening scene if you're looking to go out to the bars on a weekend!4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was a girlfriends birthday,It was a girlfriends birthday, and Mourayo was the perfect place to take her! She loved it!
It felt special.....and we were treated very well.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMA perfect choice for a filling mealMy fiance and I arrived at open on a Friday night, so the restaurant felt quiet and intimate. Service was prompt and courteous. Our waiter was very knowledgeable of the wines and made excellent recommendations to pair with the delicious entrees. You're best bet for dessert is the pirasmos; a sampling of several of the pastries surrounding a mound of yogurt and honey. Cost is on the pricey side but lower than comparable establishments in the Dupont Circle area; a good value for the quality of the food.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMA very nice dining experience.A very nice dining experience.

Watching the table side filet is mezmerizing!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had the fish specials sinceWe had the fish specials since it was Good Friday- salt cod was very good and the monkfish was good also.

Excellent quality seafood, very tasty and super service.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I took my godsonMy wife and I took my godson who was in town on business to Mourayo upon recommendation of a friend. The food and service were excellent. I had the lamb chops, my wife the lamb & orzo stew (looked more like a pasta dish) and my godson had the pork loin medallions.
I would highly recommend this restaurant and we will be back.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMStaff was very accommodatingStaff was very accommodating for our group when we had to add one additional diner and a baby stroller. They gave great recommendations on the menu. The Pythagoras “Theorema” - Pork loin medallions with figs was amazing as was the octopus appetizer.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Greek Food!I don't often eat genuine Greek food. This place was really good, service also! Would definitely recommend!3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMSecond time here for dinner.Second time here for dinner. Food is really very good and while not inexpensive it's a good value relative to a lot of higher end places. Not a lot of high-end greek restuarants so this is a nice place to go for upper tier dining and different from the more typical continental, italian, french, etc. Service was good; waiters recommendations on the menu and the wine were spot on. Wine list is short but provides an opportunity to try some greek wine which was quite good. After dinner liquours are different and interesting. Will definitely go back again.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dining experience!Excellent dining experience! Great service, great food and great variety to choose from. Really, my family really enjoyed our visit!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Greek in DCBest Greek for in DC. Excellent service and high-quality ingredients. Octopus was exceptionally good. portions are ample, and a single appetizer serves 2. Try the veg appetizer sampler, and it may be enough for dinner. Will be going back again and again. Important to have reservations (and stick to the time)--this place fills up quickly.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways an Outstanding mealThe Real deal of Greek dining.
