The buffet was amazing. Everything was fresh and so tasty that I actually went for seconds! The Greek salad was so fresh and delicious. What a great value as well. I am not usually a buffet person but this one had something for everyone. I will definitely go back and have already recommended it!

Food and value are always excellent. We ate from the buffet, so service was neither good nor bad (although the waiter did come to check that all was fine and was friendly). The ambience is fine but the room is large and was noisy. No problem for younger patrons, I am sure!

When we arrived, we had no idea that there was a dinner buffet being served. The value and quality was excellent and so glad we all decided to take advantage of the buffet. Gave us the variety we needed at a great price. Excellent food, hot, and variety to please anyone from the meats to seafood, salads, and side dishes. We watched the care taken to keep the buffet line clean and well stocked. If I hadn't started a diet plan, I would be dining there more often.

I really can’t review the place because my party was never seated. After more than half an hour of waiting, we sad “the hell with it” and went somewhere else.

We had a very tasty and ample dinner during our first visiti to Trapezaria. Especially enjoyed the Domades Yialanzi (just right amount of lemon, oil, freshness), Paidakia (grilled marinated lamb chops, perfection) and Keftedakia (greek meatballs with tzatziki). Dips were yummy too. The atmosphere was casual and too brightly lit, and the service was very good but without a smile, but with the gregarious host, the fireplace going and the wonderful meal, we will be back.

Fresh, delicious brunch buffet with something for everyone. My favorites were the stuffed chicken in lemon sauce, the Caesar salad, and the couscous salad. But there is much, much more. Service here is always friendly and good.

Most pleasant way to spend Christmas Eve with friends and family. Buffet selections were outstanding and always kept fresh. Staff was most hospitable and pleasant without being intrusive. We have dined many times at Trapezia, often introducing friends who had not been there before and we all tend to return.

Trapezaria never disappoints! As always, dinner was delicious from our avgolemono and imam bayildi appetizers to our branzino and roasted chicken entrees to our after-dinner coffee, and the service was excellent (water glasses were always at least half-full)!

Our go to Greek restaurant. And we drive from DC and fight traffic on the Pike, so that's saying a lot. Food is plentiful, and consistently great. Only bumps were the amateur bartender, and my dish delivered lukewarm. Nevertheless, we'll return.

The Arni Youvetsi had mostly bones and little meat. When I complained they give me a 15% discount! Usually the food is very good. My wife had the sampler which was very good.

All the food I tried were amazing. My favorite was the pork kabobs, my least favorite was the pork sausage.

They definitely had varieties of food to choose from. I also like their made to order pancake station and omelette station. I tried their bottomless $5 mimosa but I felt it was forgotten because it was only refilled twice.

The staff were friendly but they weren't as attentive. I don't think we were ignored but we definitely felt like we were left alone and had to catch someone's attention to get some service.

Other than that....my experience was great and for their affordable brunch price...I will definitely go back again.

The food was fine(not great) but the service was truly lacking.

The owners were “owners” and not interested in making costumers feel welcome. Waiters didn’t know the names of the dishes and the staff haven’t been properly trained.

One time was enough.

First must point out our server was GREAT! She was lovely and the food was brought to us promptly. But this visit to Trapezaria was very disappointing. Have been there more than a dozen times over the past five years and we used to really enjoy the food. This time is was a big let down. The quality of the food has greatly diminished. Fish was not as fresh and flavorful, the roasted potatoes were cold and had been cooked long ago, and the string beans seemed waxy and not cooked enough. They forgot to peel the cucumbers, and the pita was warm but soggy. Sorry Trapezaria, we used to be big fans of your restaurant. Perhaps the management and the chef have left!

The food was sooo good. I had grilled octopus with potatoes in a lemon sauce. Really tender, but not squishy. I loved ot and had leftovers for lunch. It came with a generous salad that had best feta I can ever remember having. Husband had calamari with a sauce. He was not anxious to share.
Galaktobourico ? was delicious.

I love the look and feel of this restaurant, especially sitting by the big windows, and I love their food. But on this trip the service was irritating. They obviously want everyone to have their lunch buffet, and were reluctant to bring us lunch menus, which we asked for, along with a drinks menu. Finally the waiter slapped down lunch menus, saying Let me know if you want something to drink besides water, and walked away. No drinks menu, so we had to call him back, got the menu, and finally were able to order wine/beer. We did have the buffet, which is a lot of food for the price ($14.95), including my favorite Imam Bayildi and several vegetables and a nice Greek salad. We were given a basket of spanakopita with no explanation, which was complimentary and good. Although the beginning of our lunch had an irritating edge—as if the waiter were in a bad mood—we were left in peace to linger over our meal at the end. I’d also mention that the back entrance from the parking lot is flat and easy to use if the front steps are a problem.

Excellent experience overall. Only real downside was water refills were few and far between, which is a majority of the service at a buffet.

Brunch had very few breakfast choices, but the lunch choices were excellent as were the few breakfast choices. Lamb was amazing.

The biggest problem with our meal was the noise and wind created when the air conditioning kicked in, which was frequently. It made the meal considerably less pleasant since conversation was more difficult and it became breezy and cool. Th food was good and plentiful and the service reasonably attentive.

We are frequent diners at Trapezaria. Our house guest chose dinner here on Saturday. We learned that there have been some management changes, which have resulted in menu changes. We dined on small plates from the Mezze selection, together with dips and a delicious salad. Our dinner was completed with plenty of pita and a dessert we took home. Perfect Saturday evening dinner that we would highly recommend. Can't wait to go back.

Very nice evening celebrating the kickoff of Memorial Day weekend. We reserved a table outside through Open Table but when we arrived they had nothing left. We had to wait just a little bit for someone to finish up but we ordered drinks at the bar. When we went to go settle the tab they said that round was on them to make up for our wait. Food was very good and service was very hospitable. Everything was great. We’ll be back again.

Love this brunch, but I was shocked to make the reservation on one table and nothing was written or said online or in the restaurant that they automatically added 20% gratuity for a party of 7 for buffet brunch. I would have liked to be told before,from one table as well as restaurant. I would have left 20% but would like to be given a choice.
