The staff were great. The food was excellent. The services were superior. The ambience and seating needs some help to reflect the Greek culture, but over all I highly recommend the place.

Four of us dropped in after the 4th Avenue Street Fair on a Friday evening. We were surprised to have the pick of a table and we very pleased we choose this restaurant. Hadn't been in a while. The service and food were fabulous. Nice red wine choices and the Tiri Saganaki was wonderful - flamed table-side - always a... More

We had come into the 4th Avenue district to eat at a nearby restaurant. However, it was closed on Monday nights. Athens on 4th Avenue happened to be close by, also with good Trip Advisor reviews. Long story short, we were not disappointed. The place was staffed appropriately for a Monday. Service pace was brisk, but unhurried. Fortunately, patron arrivals... More

The food is delicious, but the service is sub par. We were a group of 6. We had reservations, so they should have been expecting us. We came in at 5:45PM for dinner as we were going to a nearby show afterwards. They didn't have enough clean silverware to provide us all until 1/2 hour later, and were out of... More

My wife and I both had the lunch salads, hers was chicken and mine shrimp. The only negative is the waiter struggled with the no gluten and no cow dairy request. The waiter should have asked the chef what he could do for me. I have gotten some really good meals when the chef can be creative. For lunch the... More

We love the excellent restaurants Tucson has to offer, and this one is no exception. Did the 'opah' cheese thing which was great and the quality of the entrees was top notch. We had the grilled squid and Pasta Mussels dish, and had enough for another meal the following night! These kind of dishes could have been easily destroyed by... More

4 of us dined at Athen on 4th Avenue. We had a delicious appetizer that was a sampling. If I could correctly spell pikalia , but I hope you understand. Then we decided to have 3 entres for 4 people. The restaurant was willing to accommodate our request even by putting 2 tables together for adequate room. The food was... More

My friend and I are no strangers to Greek restaurants. Being from the Chicago area with their multiple excellent Greek restaurants on Halsted St have set the bar pretty high . Also having gone to Greece with stops in Athens and various Greek islands doesn't hurt either. Which brings me to our stop at Athens on Fourth in Tucson. I... More
