Off night.

Dined on April 21, 2016

Have been there many times and will return. Only disappointment: our preferred server was not working that night. The server we had was at best, adequate. He completely forgot our salads and brought the main course 45 minutes later. When we inquired about the salads his response was "oh yeah." He took back our entrees and then brought the salads. This probably was an unusual night. Normally, and with our preferred waiter, we have a most pleasant evening with no snafus.

Mykonos Grill - solid player no pretention

Dined on April 17, 2016

Just a very good local Greek restaurant. Dinning room is nicely decorated (Greek Island feel). Servis a little abrupt (but responsive and helpful) and that is part of the appeal (kind of like the old Jewish delis in NYC). Food was great - our table had lamb, fish and chicken dishes - all very well prepared and presented. Appetizer plate for the table was excellent. Baklava for desert was very good. Just a perfect place for a solid Greek meal, local if you live in the area with easy parking.

Mykonos Grill

vip
Dined on April 3, 2016

We have dined at Mykonos Grill many times and have never been disappointed. From the staff to the food all things are excellent. The staff is courteous and has excellent knowledge of the menu and wine list. We are partial to the fish entrees with a Greek sauvignon blanc. The restaurant itself is warm with white blue coloring. The noise level is one where normal conversation is easy to maintain. TRY IT YOU'LL LIKE IT.

Nice Atmosphere, Great Food

Dined on April 1, 2016

Given the modest location, on a side street next to an ordinary suburban shopping center, I expected the food to be OK but nothing special. It was WONDERFUL! Way better than expected. Our group was especially impressed by appetizers and small plates (we shared a lot of them).

Perfect as usual

Dined on March 27, 2016

For me finding the perfect dining experience means it's consistently good. We tend to frequent places we love because who has time to waste on a terrible meal? I am Greek which means I am very critical of Greek cooking. The cooking and preparation of the food at Mykonos is always superb. Whether you want comfort food, authentic cuisine or to impress your date this is the place to come. Family owned and operated, you will never be disappointed with your meal at Mykonos!!! PS the bread is so gooooood. If just the bread is good than you can imagine how wonderful everything else will be.

Good Greek Food

Dined on March 23, 2016

This is a very good local restaurant, . The only slight negative is when the restaurant is full or close to full, it can be noisy and you need to speak in a raised voice. the service was ok, but not great.

Excellent Greek Restaurant

Dined on March 13, 2016

Mykonos has maintained its quality over many years, providing excellent and consistently reliable Greek cuisine. I--and many others--look forward to the wonderful bread and seasoned olive oil, before anything else. The avgolemono soup is wonderful, the lamb is succulent, and the many typical Greek specialties are delicious. I have been there many times over the years, and always look forward to returning.

Very Good Food, But too Much Salt

Dined on March 5, 2016

The food at the Mykonos Grill was very good, but it had far too much salt, as we discovered the next morning. My lamb was excellent, but others in the party felt that the food did not taste "Greek enough." I also found the tables to be too close together and the noise level to be rather high.

Mykonos Grill is one of favorite spots for our weekly Wednesday date night dinners. The food is always great and so is the service. We always have a delightful dinner and once in awhile I've been their for lunch with work colleagues. When we are in the mood for Greek we think of Mykonos.

Took a while for waiter to show up to our table, despite the fact that there were [including us] only four parties in the entire restaurant at the time. Complimentary bread had rock hard crust. Split Tzatziki for appetizer; delicious. Husband ordered Kreatomezes; he liked it. I ordered Roasted Leg of Lamb; I liked it (FYI, it comes with green beans and potatoes; for some reason, the sides for this dish aren't listed on the menu). Split Rice Pudding for dessert; delicious. Small, quiet restaurant with decent food and service.

A great bottle of Retsina, fantastic olive oil and good bread -- followed up by an assortment of entrees, all delicious. Some of us were Greek by heritage and others by adoption, so we knew what Greek food should be. We were not disappointed.

Greek Valentine Day

vip
Dined on February 15, 2016

We went to our favorite restaurant on Valentine's Day and had a wonderful time. We are bias but, since the restaurant was crowded with people waiting, we were not alone in our feelings. The restaurant offered three fixed price offerings from appetizers to desert. The choices were enough to satisfy anyone. On top that the service was outstanding. A Greek restaurant not to be missed.

is hard to find. However, they did a nice job with 3 fixed price menus to choose from that were not terribly pricey for the large amount of food. Rockfish and branzino were both prepared well. Appetizers were good. Salad was adequate. Apple cake for dessert was too much for one person, but quite tasty. Overall a very good meal, especially for Valentine's Day.

Professional

Dined on February 15, 2016

These folks are seasoned pros. From the greeting at the door to the round of drinks through dessert, everything is easy, stress-free and delicious. For me, the quality of the gin martini says a lot, and theirs was excellent. The waiter's advice was on target for the food as well as helpful toward us saving money ordering a certain way. The owner was a watchful presence and that always is reassuring. And the lamb is the best around.

Superb Greek cuisine, authentic, great service!

Dined on February 14, 2016

As a Greek-American who grew up in Crete and Athens, it's tough finding Greek food that reminds me of my grandmother's (GiaGia's) dishes of my youth. Mykonos Grill has the best and most authentic Greek cuisine in the Washington DC area. The tzatziki is thick, creamy, with a heavy garlic dill flavor. The country salad (horiatiki) is simple with tomatoes, cucumbers, onions and feta. The lamb rigonato (tender roasted lamb with oregano) served w/ lamb-basted potatoes and green beans (fasolada) with tomato was excellent. My wife had the seafood youvetsi (orzo pasta) with a light tomato sauce; also execellent. Dessert was a warm piece of galactoboureko (it was actually bogatsa, for those who have been to Hraklion and the famous "3-Lions Plaza" just up the street from the ferry boat landing) - dusted with powdered sugar and lightly drizzled with honey. The food was only bested by the personal attention paid by the owner and wait staff. Our server was a young Greek man, here studying at the Univ of MD, who was both friendly and efficient with our service. We will go again, and would highly recommend the Mykonos Grill if you want to experience what Greek food should taste like. - Manny and Aimee Kokotakis

food prep

Dined on February 13, 2016

I ordered the rock fish, as always. It is my go to dish. Not anymore. The fish was filled with bones, I nearly swallowed them a few times. Once I finished picking out the bones, the fish was mutilated, but I ate it any way. Why didn't I return it? Because after it was served, the waiter never came back until it was time to sell dessert. SMH. This neighborhood gem, was disappointing.
