The successor to Vienna’s popular Amphora Restaurant has arrived, bringing high-end cuisine and cocktails.

The Maple Room Restaurant and Lounge opened at 377 Maple Avenue on Sunday (Nov. 26), meeting its stated goal of a November launch. An employee confirmed the opening but declined to comment for now, as the restaurant is still getting settled in.

“Relax and unwind in our stylish lounge area, complete with cozy bar seating,” The Maple Room said in social media posts. “Pull up a chair at the bar and let our mixologists wow you with hand-crafted cocktails. Ready for the full experience? Book your reservations on Resy and join us for an unforgettable evening.”

For the time being, the restaurant is only operating during dinner hours, opening at 4 p.m. every day except for Mondays. It closes at 11 p.m. on Tuesday through Thursday, 1 a.m. on Friday and Saturday, and 10 p.m. on Sunday.

The Maple Room is encouraging diners to reserve a table online. The restaurant can seat 170 patrons inside and got the Town of Vienna’s approval last year for a 44-seat outdoor patio.

Coming from Mac St. Hospitality Group, a Sterling-based company that also runs the Greek eatery SouvlakiBar in Oakton, The Maple Room serves prime steak and other upscale American cuisine. A menu shared on Facebook features salads, charceuterie boards, lamb and pork chops, and seafood, including a grilled whole branzino and an $85 seafood tower with shrimp, oysters and lobster tail.

Mac St. Hospitality is affiliated with Sarantis Properties, a developer that bought the property from the families that owned Amphora in 2020. A 24-hour diner known for its extensive menu and all-day breakfast, Amphora closed in January 2021 after 44 years in Vienna.

The Amphora Diner Deluxe is still operating in Herndon (1151 Elden Street), along with a bakery and catering service.
