I have been eating at both the Vienna Amphora for over 30 years and the Herndon Amphora since they opened about 10 years ago. Both locations have excellent food of Mediterranean and American entree's. My favorite dishes include the Moussaka, Shepherds Pie and Chicken Marsala. You must try Amphora's amazing desserts, as they are created fresh daily with a wide... More

The staff was really friendly and informative and the food was great! Reasonably priced and they have some different items not found in other places. The menu is HUGE and they're open 24hrs. I much prefer them over a Denny's. It's worth the trip.

Open 24 hours which was nice for me at 530am on a Sunday. Wait staff was friendly and efficient, especially Mary. I had French toast which was unique on challah bread and Delicious. Excellent coffee.

Agreed to meet a friend for a late lunch and the Amphora was just right in terms of location and ambiance. Given the close to 1 Pm time, the place was less than full and we had a choice of booths or tables. The menu is very large and offers everything from breakfast to desserts. The portions were very generous... More

Went there for breakfast before flying out of Dulles. The facility is nice. The food was good but a simple omlette breakfast cost $ 17. There is an extensive menu here and this diner is open 24/7.

We were not in a mood for a restaurant, so we tried this deli. To our surprise, it was not your everyday old-fashioned deli, but rather a really nice place, with an extensive menu and great dessert selections (even though we did not order any).

We visit Herndon every year but have never tried this restaurant. WOW! The service was friendly and quick despite the crowd. But the food was absolutely amazing! I had the chicken Parmesan with pasta and salad. It was a large portion and just delicious. Before leaving we had to get cakes to go since they seem to be known for... More

We were sent here by their bakery and were disappointed. I walked into the diner thinking that the place would be like a 50s place and it is very swanky. The wait staff wear black bow ties and nicer table settings. We had a waitress that barely checked on us. The menu is a book. So much to choose from.... More
