Always an excellent meal, service and ambiance. It's difficult to get a reservation on the weekend unless you call several days in advance so this time we dined on a Wednesday to celebrate a birthday. However, Alex, one on the owners, advised us that it usually available after 8 PM on weekends. We look forward to our next visit.

Very friendly and competent service. First class drinks.
Our appetizers were wonderful- eggplant with a flavorful sauce and light, crispy calarmari ( not the dense rubbery bands you so often find)
Everyone’s entre’ was well received- branzino , shrimp, octopus, and the server’s wine suggestion was excellent (and not too pricey).
Desert was worth all the calories!! Ice cream over crumbled baklava elegantly served in a martini glass. Can’t wait to go back again.

We had high expectations based on reviews that were not met by the food or the overall experience. The waiter assured us that the lamb burgers were always cooked medium-rare (which is hubby's preference), but it came out medium-well done. We didn't send it back because we had waited an excessively long time for our meals on a Tuesday night when the dining room had only a few tables occupied. My branzino fish entree was bland and tasted like it was a previously frozen filet. It needed more herbs, lemon or something to make it interesting. Even the feta cheese was bland. The restaurant decor is OK, but seems dated.

Thank you for visiting us Mrs. Nancy Kackley. We respectfully disagree with your assessment of the food and timeliness. Your server was attentive and your meal was paced accordingly. You were seated promptly at 6:55PM. The check was presented upon request at 7:45PM. You departed shortly thereafter. The meal included a salad, a spread, two entrees, along with two glasses of wine and an iced tea with no ice. The burger was ordered medium. Had you informed us, we would have prepared another one.

The fixed-price limited menu allowed the staff to focus on food quality and excellent service. Will definitely return to sample more options from the full menu. :)

We love this restaurant! This was the most recent visit to the restaurant. I was a little disappointed in the prefix menu. Not because of the food that appeared on the menu but because when the food arrived at the table more often than not it was Room temperature or colder. Our spanikopita was as if it came out of the refrigerator. However, the taste of our food and the over all experience is still awesome! I would recommend this restaurant to anyone

Huge let down in service

It started poorly and went downhill from the moment we sat down.

We had been here before and really liked it - authentic Greek cuisine and well prepared. This visit, however, turned out very different. It was on a Tuesday night when the dining room had only a few tables occupied. Despite overly dry lamb burgers and the under-cooked french fries that we sent back and which came back over-fried at the very end of the meal, the real problem was the poor service. The "waiter" seemed uninterested in even taking our order. When we complained about not getting our beverages or bread, he seemed to care less. We asked to see the Manager and he informed us that he was the manager! To add the final insult to injury, the Owner stopped by at the very end with a free dessert to make up for our obvious dissatisfaction. It was too late We declined and left.

I am hesitant to write this review after noticing that the owner keeps replying with excuses to other Opentable patrons’ complaints rather than offering apologies. If the owner considers himself to be in the right all the time, then you can be mistreated at his restaurant for no reason because he is in charge of the reviews as well. Beware!

In our case, instead of taking responsibility and striving to improve the customer experience, he instead resorted to intimidation as to what else could he do at the end of our meal when he should have done “something” at the beginning of our visit!

We love Mom Eugenia's and frequent this restaurant often. Easter dinner was amazing and the desert galactobourouko was probably the best we've had in the DC area. Waiters are always knowledgeable and very efficient. I would definitely recommend visiting but make a reservation as there is always a high demand and a long line for those without a reservation!

Stellar meal, Very Friendly Staff, and having Skinos Mastiha liqueur in stock for an after-dinner tipple was much appreciated. 'Twas our first time, so we stuck to the Greek basics - Three spreads, Flaming Brandy Saganaki, Keftedakia, Paidakia Lamb Chops for me, and Fisherman's Catch for my Cutie. She said the lightly-battered extra crispy Cod was possibly the best fried fish she ever had. YAY, Kitchen! Lamb Chops were a perfect hot-pink center. Server Nicole made excellent recommendations and was attentive and responsive. Big, open dining room was full, but noise-level was low enough to have a conversation. Don't miss the home-made Apple Cake dessert w/ice cream. WHOA! It's DEE- Lish-Uss. We even requested a bath-tub full of its caramel sauce to go, but alas, none was available in the requested volume :-)
