"How excellence is maintained/sustained is no mystery here - from the front door, to the waiters and into the kitchen, we've been treated like royalty as have our palettes. What's wonderful is the quality & bravura visited upon seafood, not to mention meat dishes, like lamb. A starter of grilled octopus is second to none and the Chilean seabass is always buttery with a hint of crisp on the outside; mesogiaki (bean salad) a consistent treat, brings smiles while the wine list delights, whether it's the notorious blue bottle (Santorini) or the wonderful red, Amethystos..
With the preponderance of seafood restaurants, this one is a stand out because it covers not only surf so well, but also turf, to the nines. Congrats, kudos, thanks, G & K"

"Really. There is a certain magic about this place, from the hosts, to the bar, through the many dining rooms, to the wait staff: among them, Evan, Phil and Gerard. It pervades the food and to be honest, we consider it one of Washington's finest seafood restaurants, for the grilled octopus to the perfectly cooked Chilean sea bass with its 'slightly' crispy texture over a fish that's buttery and soft; for the red meat hardcore, there's always lamb in a variety of variations from braised to roasted to grilled, all exceptionally finished to perfection,
If you can't get reservations in the restaurant, don't hesitate to hit the bar and and eat there as well, Augustino's the barkeep and he knows his stuff and the unique Greek wines!"
