Love this place! High-end Greek food reminiscent of similar restaurants in San Francisco and New York. Excellent service and nice ambiance. So glad it’s in Howard County!

Great experience. We sat outside and it was windy but patio heaters were provided. Dinner service took some time - recommend ordering an appetizer but the food and service was amazing. Definitely worth the wait. Boris provided great service and was quite knowledgeable. First time but definitely not the last. A definite for a special occasion.

Wonderful food, prepared well with delicious flavors. Whole Bronzini was very moist with capers, lemon and olive oil. Moussaka was really well spiced and flavorful. Keep the herbs and spices flowing!!!
Beautiful decor and ambiance.

Desserts were delicious as well.

Can't believe that we just discovered this fabulous restaurant in Columbia, Md seeing as it has been open for a year. As all remark, the atmosphere is cutting edge cool, the lighting and decor. The service was impeccable, professional and good humored. The food was excellent, the lamb shank tender and generous and there is a reason why others have recommended the Chilean sea bass (perfect). Don't miss the baklava.

This is the second time we've been ( in 2 weeks) and the place is great!
My ONLY COMPLAINT is that we weren't told of all the specials on Sat night. I overheard the waited at the table next to us mention 2 things that we were not told about that I may have been interested in ordering. I really had my eye set on the Lamb Shank so that's what I ordered. IT WAS FABULOUS! FINALLY, a restaurant that takes away all the bad memories of Greystone Grill!

I find Xenia to be a beautiful restaurant aesthetically… But feel as though for the price the food could be of better quality. While the ambience reads a five-star restaurant, the food lacks in comparison.

The food and ambiance was excellent. This is our 3rd time going there, but first time during COVID. The outside dining area was pleasant.
I think our server may have been new. He didn't offer us any information before we ordered - we found out about a few specials from another server at another table. Make sure to ask for Happy hour info and daily specials.
This a great date night place. We also went there for dinner on New Year's Eve and really liked it.

Authentic Greek food in my back yard! Boris was our waiter and was fabulous. The calamari with feta cheese, spinach pie and lamb sliders were amazing. Staff was friendly and the overall experience was top notch. Choice of indoor or outside seating. Surprise complimentary doughnuts filled with honey was the perfect end to our meal. Will definitely make several return visits. Do yourself a favor and reserve your table now!

Food and service were great! I splurged and ordered the lobster pasta while my other half got the grilled redfish. The warm pita and olives as starters and the little fried doughnuts at the end sealed the deal. We will definitely be back.

Quite simply the best Greek food I've had in any restaurant, including in Greece. We're Greek, so we're quite picky when it comes to Greek food. Exemplary in all aspects, food, service and atmosphere.

Awful service, server forgot to put order in for entrees and after an hour the apology was “ sorry typed in for desert”. Waited an hour for the food, no apologies, I had to ask for big Concession as manager wouldn’t have offered, barely an apology, then an attitude for asking for more off the check when our wait continued to be almost 2 hours, and when we ordered lava cake waiter didn’t tell us it would take 10 minutes to cook.
Terrible, atrocious experience with Management who could have cared less.

Bronzino fish perfectly textured, flavored and cooked, perfect with . Greek spreads appetizer seemed the best traditional spreads I have ever had in Greek restaurants, including carefully seasoned and lightly toasted pita. Given that is was our wedding anniversary, Xenia gifted us excellent desserts of baklava, ice cream and mini doughnuts. The baklava had (to me, who make it from scratch at home) a different take which I welcomed, not as sweet and without the lemony flavor I add to the syrup of mine, and an intense focus on the quality flavors of its nutty filling. Our wines, a Greek chardonnay and a New Zealand sauvignon blanc, were excellent. The atmosphere is beautiful and cozy, the good jazzy music was at a volume perfect to provide privacy and permit easy conversation, and our server, Boris, was perfect in his pace of service and attentions. For me, it was worth the $106 bill (plus tip).

The food was excellent. I got the lamb giovetsi!! Delicious!! The orzo was just a bit only a bit salty for me. The avgolemono soup was wonderful and the fried kalamari was so tender and tasty. The desserts were out of this world. We ordered coconut cake and cheesecake. We were also served mini loukoumades and baklava with ice cream. It was a wonderful experience!
