We had a wonderful meal with friends from out of town, one of whom lived in Greece for several years and declared the dinner perfectly Greek! Our server was helpful and obliging as were all the staff who came to our table. The grilled whole bronzino was as delicious as usual, the lamb chops succulent (although a couple were overly fatty with not a lot of meat), and the salads and dips fresh and generous. We have eaten here at least a dozen times over the past couple of years and enjoy every visit.

Wonderful Greek and Mediterranean food in downtown Rockville. Portions are quite generous, and the servers do their best to keep you happy. It is fun seeing the flaming cheese Saganaki being prepared, even for another table.

We were there at 6 PM on a Saturday night, one of the first few in. By 7 PM it was getting crowded and the noise level increased. If you are sensitive to the noise level, it is better to eat earlier or on a less popular night.

Trapezaria is my favorite Greek restaurant. I've been coming here since it opened. Definitely worth the visit. It's not a quick restaurant so sit down, enjoy the ambiance and delicious food, and slow down for a meal. It's worth it.

We decided to try this restaurant for the 1st time with another couple for Valentine's Day. We were disappointed upon our arrival to find that they were serving only a fixed price 4 course menu rather than their normal menu for $45 per person. No one, including open table, provided this information when the reservation was made.
Before our cocktails were brought to the table, our waitress brought the 1st 2 courses of the meal which included hummus and a small side salad. The hummus course proved to be the best dish of the night . The salad was room temperature and bland.
The entrees were the only available choice for the meal and consisted of 5 options. We tried 4 of the different options between us and all were disappointed with everyone. Each and every entree included soggy tasteless green beans and under cooked potatoes. Dessert was a soggy philo dough with a custard filling
It was bad. To add the final insult to injury, an 18% gratuity was included when we were simply a table of 4. Furthermore, the wait staff decided to clean up the rest of the restaurant while our table and two others completed their meal service. I'm not in the habit of writing bad reviews but I will never go back to this restaurant.

Horrible service with undercooked food - not a winning combo. On the plus side, you may not need to make a reservation as this place was nearly empty on an early Sunday afternoon, so every cloud...

No thank you on going back.

The food was quite good as was the value. The restaurant used to serve their bread along a tray of olives, hummus and I believe an olive oil mix. Missed that much. We had a good time but wish we could have stayed longer but the restaurant was extremely cold.

I've had some good dinners at Trapezaria and some average ones. The service is always great and they seem to be very appreciative of the patronage, but sometimes the food will miss the mark. For instance, we dined there with friends and had some of the dips for appetizers- excellent. The wine came out right on time and was great. I had ordered the lamb shank over orzo pasta which was excellent. However, two people in our group ordered the vegetarian dream entree which arrived at room temperature. Another one of our group had ordered a special that was suppose to be shrimp, mussels and scallops in a tomato based sauce over fettuccine pasta but when it arrived it had no mussels and it was over spaghetti pasta. Still good, but not exactly as advertised. Both of those were kitchen mistakes and not the server's fault. If the kitchen starts to run out of the ingredients for a special, eighty-six the thing and tell the servers- don't try to "make do." For these reasons, I reluctantly gave them only a "good" on the food. Hopefully, the kitchen will get their act together for the next time I go to have dinner there.

We had reservations on a Friday and arrived early following a movie. It wasn't crowded and we were seated immediately. Had a couple of Zeos Dark beers that very tasty along with a soup and octopus tentacle appetizer. Fantastic, not chewy and great with the hummus and diced veggies. Very tender. Main meal included the Bronzini that was served whole and was tender, flaky and not dry. The Greek lasagna was OK, but there wasn't much meat and the noodles included macaroni in the layers. Very starch heavy but tasted good overall. You will be treated to bread wedges and our server, who may have also been the manager/owner (we did not ask) brought us a desert and shots at the end of the meal. This is very nice place to eat and easy to hold a personal conversation without feeling like you need to be very quiet. Service was fast and spot on. My wife asked for lemon for her fish and it was delivered in triple seconds later. We will go back to sample some of the other menu items.

The waitress was cleaning the table & droped a soiled fork on my husbands hat, picked it up, saying nothing & walked away. His hat had food on it from the fork. When I took it to her she said “I’ll clean it off”. Isaid to the owner who was sitting there how disappointing I was that she had originally not said a word. He said “ she was a good person & had a good heart”. That of course has nothing to do with it. She obviously should have apologized and taken the hat to clean it off. The owner considered himself right. We will not go back.

Trapezaria is one of our favorites. They have convenient, "FREE" parking in the rear. Their trio of dips is terrific. We shared a nice bottle of Greek wine. We teased them about having more raisins in their rice pudding dessert. All in all, a very pleasant experience.

With the wonderful Manny at the helm, a more memorable evening could not be had!

From the delicious dolomades to crisp Greek meatballs to the authentic salad with generous feta and olives, everything coming from the kitchen was carefully- even lovingly- prepared. The moussaka was just as great as usual in this family run restaurant. The retsina wine was unusually fruity and light and perfectly chilled as it should be.

And don’t forget the desserts. Luscious!!!

Lovely dinner - I got the Greek Margarita and the Vegetarian Dream as an entree, both were really delicious and flavorful. The service was great - our waiter was friendly and attentive, and two other higher level staff checked in on us over the course of our time there to make sure we had everything we needed. The dining area was appealingly decorated and surprisingly spacious (a lot of restaurants cramp tables together so that you barely have space between groups, but this restaurant had a very nice, more open layout that provided for a more intimate dining experience). All in all will be back, and highly recommend for people interested in trying traditional Greek and other Mediterranean dishes.

The setting is nice enough, and the service was pleasant, but the food was disappointing, to say the least. We shared several small plates, none of which was particularly tasty. For example, the plate of beets with goat cheese and walnuts was just that—some slices of beet sprinkled with walnuts and goat cheese. Nothing really tied it together or elevated it beyond its separate ingredients. In fairness, we didn’t order main dishes, and perhaps that’s where this kitchen shines. But I’ve had wonderful small plates at many other Greek restaurants, and I was expecting much better.
