Arrived at noon on a thursday for lunch. Ordered moussaka. Greek salad included. The salad was exceptionally well prepared with more feta than usually found with greek salads. The ripe greek olives were perfect. The lettuce was pre-tossed with the dressing so that every bit of it was drenched in. heavenly mix of vinegar and oil. I fully enjoyed the... More

This is the go to restaurant for special occasions and birthday celebrations. Great family style meals served with grilled Greek season meat, lemon potatoes, Greek salad, home made bread and vegetables. The Greek salad alone is enough to fill up on. Traditional Greek appetizers like grape leaves and meat balls. Very nice attentive wait staff. During the week at dinner... More

The atmosphere can be loud at times, but the food will definitely curb your appetite. Really enjoy the lamb gyros. So delicious!

Great service and very authentic! Great lunch place but went for dinner and was let down by some of the food. A better explanation by the server might have help a lot.

Returned to Athena Taverna off Stratford in Winston Salem for a delightful lunch yesterday and found the cuisine so savory I ordered another entree and appetizer for our dinner to great raves at home. Love their grilled & marinated chicken plate--an ample serving--so delicate & succulent. Sometimes I have the Octopus and my wife always looks forwards to take home... More

... I hope the food is as good as it is at Athena Greek Taverna. Portions are generous, everything is fresh, and the flavors are unique and delicious. The menu offers a nice variety of entrees, salads, and appetizers. And, yes, there is even a hamburger. The wait staff knows the menu, the preparation, and they can teach you how... More

When we entered the restaurant I noticed right away the horrible conditions of the restaurant. The floor was dirty and the tables as well. The lamps were covered with dust. We ordered three Greek Salads and grilled octopus and shrimps. The Greek salads were not good. They were full of vinegar, and I couldn't finish mine. The shrimps and the... More
