Description: Nick first opened its doors in March 2007 with owners, Nick Samiotis and his daughter, Eviania Davey, who are no strangers to the restaurant industry. Nick has been a restauranteur for over 35 years, owning and operating multiple restaurants throughout the Northern Virginia region. Eviania grew up in the family restaurants, understanding the business from the bottom up. In July of 2012, Nick and Eviania decided that the Brambleton area, in which Nick's Corner Grill is located, needed something differnet. They decided to close the restaurant for three week, in order to start theses changes. With a completely new cuisine, decor and atmosphere, Nick and Eviania created and re-opened a restaurant that was authentic to Nick's homeland of Greece. Since re-opening, Nick and Eviania couldn't be more happier with the tremendous support and feedback and would like everyone to feel as though their "home" is the customer's home as well.

Tried Nick's for the first time recently for lunch. Good variety on the menu, very helpful staff. I'm no expert on Greek/Mediterranean food, but the menu appeared well balanced and extensive. Both lunch meals were well prepared and tasty. We'd go again.

Nick's Taverna has a wide variety of greek food. Everything I have had to eat there has been delicious. I wish they were open for lunch through out the week.

Nick's Taverna is sort like our local hang out. The food is excellent, and everything tastes homemade. Even the hummus, which is offered for free as an appetizer (like salsa and chips in a Mexican restaurant) i is the best I have ever had. And they have a unique Greek salad that has all sorts of vegetables and feta in it - and no lettuce. A bowl full of goodness, like olives, cucumbers, dolmades, feta and perfectly seasoned greek dressing. It's a nice atmosphere - comfy. And always very good service.

We've been to Nick's multiple times since it opened -- through it's various iteration of names -- and always had a good experience. Always reliable and always good food. We returned a few nights ago and everything just "clicked up a notch." From the moment we walked in, and were greeted by a lovely young blonde girl, who couldn't have been nicer in accommodating our request for a specific table. The place was doing a brisk pace of business at the bar, which included a steady stream of people picking up take-out (always a good sign), which fewer than half the tables were occupied during our visit. Our waiter (sorry, I've forgotten his name) was always there yet never intrusive. This is a casual place, but we never felt ignored or intruded upon.

The food was, as always good. In particular, the hummus and chips (very thin and crispy) they put on each table are worth visiting in their own right. We tried the saganaki appetizer for the first time (after jealously watching it being lit at a neighboring table), and it will now be our "go-to" appetizer.

Another great thing about Nick's, which is getting lost in the sea of chain places hitting Loudoun, is that it is a singleton, family-owned place, and it shows. Enjoyed this visit so much I had to write it up, and we'll be back.

Nick's Taverna, Ashburn, VA - What a find! In the mood for really good Mediterranean food? Check out Nick's. Great gyros, tabouli was delicious and call ahead take-out service was fast and efficient. Food was just what we were looking for and really hit the spot!
