A little pricey but everything was top quality and very tasty. Need some non-Greek wines on the list to pair with the quality of the menu. Service was excellent.

Don't be fooled by the outside. Diven by hundreds of times and thought... Meh. Ate there on the recommendation of others - It did not disappoint! Appetisers (set dinner) was a wonderful four pieces and each a unique and good combination of tastes and textures. Had the lamb shank - perfectly cooked. Our server (and co-owner) help select a good quality wine that went well with the meal and was not overly priced. Yup - I would recommend Eugenia, and will now stop by more often myself with family and friends.

Always meets our expectations, and we have high standards. Appetizers are unique and very tasty. We had lamb and the trout special and both were exquisite. The lamb is always falling off the bone and bursting with flavor. Half-price wine bottle special on Wednesdays is a treat. And finally, the attentiveness of the wait staff rivals any 5-star restaurant.

Absolutely fantastic experience eating here. Everything we ordered was delicious, you really can't go wrong. The wine list is great, our waiter picked a white and red for us to try and we loved both. We definitely plan to go back as soon as possible! It was a bit loud, but the place was bustling so noise was to be expected. There were several families with kids there, so I do feel it was kid friendly, and that you'd be able to find things on the menu that kids would eat. Also a great date night spot!

Being new to the area and seeking out a great Greek - this was a fabulous find! I have not one bad thing to say about it. Our experience from start to finish was perfect! Service was professional and knowledgeable, wine suggestion was on point and food was above outstanding. Grilled octopus, grape leaves with meat, tatziki and hot feta dip appetizers to die for. Lamb chops, salmon and chicken all top notch. Cannot wait to go back!

We went for lunch to celebrate my son't birthday. The bread and the pita were excellent. The Greek green beans in tomato were excellent. Two people had moussaka. I tasted it. It was okay. I had the roast lamb special. Some pieces of the lamb would melt in your mouth. Others were too tough to chew. The potatoes were excellent. My husband had a good white wine from Santorini. They brought us some wonderful honey cookies afterward. The portions were generous.

We've been coming to Eugenia's since it opened with some frequency. It is a convenient neighborhood gem from which we live about 10 minutes. They always remember us and even remember some of our favorites (e.g., wines, taramosalata, grilled octopus, lamb chops, branzino). The quality of the food is as good as any fine restaurant in the DC area (and better in some cases) and is extremely consistent. The staff are friendly, helpful (explaining/suggesting dishes and specials), attentive, and a lot of fun. They make us (including our teenage kids) feel at home. Just can't say enough about how flavorful the food is (proteins and veggies!).

Sometimes we order small plate/apps and share for dinner, other times we each order our own entrees. Either way, its a great time and fantastic food. Fairly reasonably priced too considering the quality. Definitely suggest reservations, especially on the weekends.

We are becoming regulars, as there are so many exciting dishes to try that we have to keep coming back! The food is very fresh and nicely spiced (but not overly so), and the lamb is some of the best I've had in a restaurant. Service is always highly attentive and the wait staff are so very friendly and willing to 'teach' about the dishes and the wine. If they keep this high quality up, they'll have to take over the restaurant next door as well!
