The menu is full of wonderful choices and creative variations, from appetizers, wine pairings , entrees to desserts! The staff is friendly and informative. The food, Fantastic! The atmosphere is very Mediterranean and clean, do be prepared for the occasional throwing and breaking of a plate or two with the famous "Ompaa" with certain traditional dishes being served. We left... More

Being a Chicago native and having enjoyed authentic Greek food for several years, I was genuinely excited when a couple that I was visiting in Tucson recently suggested that we have dinner at this restaurant. We had reservations and were seated immediately, and there were still several tables that were empty. We ordered a bottle of wine, a serving of... More

Thank you for your review. As you can see from the large number of 5-star reviews we typically receive, your experience was not consistent with the high quality of food and service we provide to our customers. As the owner I take 100% responsibility for your very bad experience. I remember this evening all too well, and everything was going... More

The food was excellent. Greek specialties: a light supper featuring Spanakopita, Greek salad, Greek mini-chicken kabobs and Greek spreads on pita bread. We heard nothing but raves about the delicious food! And the presentation was so very nice. It was great Owner Jeff Bridge to be there serving and make sure everything was just right--which it was!

We have been to this restaurant many times over the past 3 years. Saturday night was the worst service and food I have experienced at a restaurant at this price point. The evening began with us placing an order for a bottle of wine and the flaming cheese appetizer. Water came quickly, but nothing more for what seemed like forever.... More

The service you received and excuses you were given are unacceptable to us and that issue is being rectified. Poor service does not stem from who is in the kitchen. We know that service is affected by the people who serve our customers and how well they handle busy situations. Unfortunately, you were on the receiving end of a poor... More

Six of us went for dinner and it was an enjoyable evening from start to finish. We received a warm greeting at the front door and our waiter was professional, smiling and gave us very attentive service. We had 4 different entrees from the Gyros Plate to their weekend scallops. Every meal was perfectly done, including the scallops. Good food,... More

Before current ownership the meals were excellent and traditional...now the recipes have been modified and the Greek meals have a tendency to have Italian sauces, rather than the traditional sauces they used before. The strong Italian sauces familiar to the now current Italian owner, are not suitable for the subtleness of the Greek food...think about Roast Lamb Shank with an... More

Jeff B, Owner at It's Greek to Me, responded to this review

We are sorry you did not enjoy your experience. But even after 3.5 years since the original owner left, we still use the original recipes from Greece. What we have changed is the cans and processed items to fresh items. The subtle nuances and tastes of fresh food cannot always mimic what you have tasted before. The shanks have always... More

This is by far my favorite restaurant in all of Arizona. The food is awesome. The chefs are awesome. The servers are awesome. All staff is awesome. The owners are awesome. Jeff, Amber and Rick are awesome. My favorite dish is Octopus and the Greek coffee. What else can I say. It's just awesome. Thank you, Ed Mandler

We had an incredible dinner ... everything was, well actually, perfect. From the wait staff to our substitutions to a perfect presentation and preparation. We absolutely loved it and highly recommend "It's Greek to Me"!! Go there, if you at all can!

Stopped in on a trip from Mesa to Tucson for a different kind of lunch. Tired of the same old fast food burgers, tacos and fried chicken this was the perfect place. I had The Jimmy sandwich, loaded with Mediterranean meats; and my wife had the Gyro, agian, packed with lamb. Service was adequate, but another server would have improved... More
