"We stopped with friends for dinner at Stoney River following a Navy football game and we had a great experience. The service was exceptional. It was very busy and I was so glad that I had made reservations via Open Table. It is definitely a special occasion type of place because it is pricey. The food was very good - with some awesome little dinner rolls - that are hard to stop eating. My husband said his filet was terrific. I had the Asian salmon - very generous portion - fabulous flavor. Overall - it was outstanding and we would definitely return."

Established in 2006, Manoli Canoli is a family owned and operated, full-service, dining and carry-out restaurant. The proud owner, Stavros Manolakos, along with his wife’s culinary expertise, has perfected the menu to offer the best homemade, mouthwatering, Italian and Greek dishes. Combining old-world charm with some modern-day culinary masterpieces it is a truly unique dining experience for the whole family! Our friendly, experienced staff, with our quality Italian and Greek food, including wonderful gourmet hand tossed New York style pizza pies, scrumptious, hand- made daily mozzarella, imported olive oil and olives from the owner’s orchard in Sparta, Greece, has made Manoli Canoli a popular dining neighborhood destination in the Chevy Chase area .

"After reading several reviews, my husband and I stopped for dinner at Manoli Canoli - and we were not overly impressed. I think this place does more take out service than dine in - only about 10 tables in the place - pretty uncomfortable at that. If you are looking for a nice eat-in Italian experience - this would not fit your needs. While the food was good - it was not great - and overall we would not return."

"This was not my first time dining at Old Ebbitt Grill - but it may have been my last. I took a friend to celebrate their birthday - expecting a great experience. Unfortunately, our wait staff person did not provide timely attention and it appeared that we were more a disruption to her day than welcomed guests. Granted, this was lunch time in downtown D.C. and the restaurant was full - however, it took a very long time to get our meals. I had the Atlantic salmon and some type of vegetable mix. The salmon was very bland and the vegetable mix of zucchini, onions, olives, and grilled corn was minced small and was too oily and overcooked. The menu definitely needs to offer healthier options."

Why would a restaurant born and raised in Massachusetts open a location in Woodbridge, Virginia? Doesn’t seem like a path the average restaurant would be expected to take. But then, we’re not the average restaurant — something you might have guessed from our name. Now to answer the question. We chose Woodbridge because it’s a thriving community in a beautiful part of the country. Leesburg and Gaithersburg — the other two communities we’ve settled into outside of our native Massachusetts — both welcomed us warmly, so we think we’ll be at home in Woodbridge too. there are five breweries, three wineries and numerous farmer’s markets within a 20-mile radius of our soon-to-be home in Stonebridge at Potomac Town Center. That means we’ll have plenty to satisfy our preference for locally sourced ingredients. Our chef takes a creative approach to made-from-scratch food, where everything is prepared to order (aka, your way), where service is over the top and prices are not. That’s us.
