“Good dining choice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2014

We have been to Laskara's several times, the most recent with some friends. The service is always prompt and friendly. The menu has a nice wide variety of appetizers and entrees, so everyone is sure to find something that they like. Portion size is generous, some of the people in our party couldn't finish their meals. Great value for the price.

“Great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014

I have been here a few times. Each time the food and service is amazing. I have not tried something I did not like. The Greek food is the best around.

“Keeps getting better and better”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2013 via mobile

We had not eaten at Laskara's in well over a year. That was only because our friend,who used to live near it, moved. We live in another part of the state.
We always liked the food there and never felt that it needed improvement but it improved!
The bread was warmer. The shrimp dish was in less of a cheesy sauce. And the delicious rack of lamb ( which I consider the best in the state especially for the price) was perfection. The lamb had no fat, was seasoned perfectly, and was perfectly cooked. Previously one could only get the lamb with mashed potatoes which was fine. Now one has the choice of mashed or roasted potatoes or rice. The roasted potatoes I ordered accompanied the lamb beautifully.
The desserts were definitely more creative than they used to be. We ordered a delicious caramel apple
crème brûlée.
The service was excellent and was put to the test because every table was taken and a private party was going on in another room.
The atmosphere was still comfortable despite the full house.
My only regret is that this restaurant is so far from home.

“Really Nice Meal at Laskara”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 October 2013

Three of us ate dinner here recently. We shared our recent experiences with our recent wonderful trip to Greece. So why not Laskara, whose menu is reminiscent of the fine meals we had in Greece?

We had rack of lamb, which was among the best we've had- tender, lean, nicely grilled chops. Our friend enjoyed his Shrimp Santorini as well. We had glasses of fine Greek red wine with our lamb. Entrees come with a salad, served family style, that has lots of good ingredients. Service was friendly and professional, in spite of the fact that it was a full house that evening.

We'll make sure we return when in this area.

“Great food, great service, great value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 October 2013

I just made my first visit to Laskara's. Both the regular menu and Early Bird menu gave many tempting choices. The Early Bird Special gave me an appetizer, salad, entree, dessert, and coffee for $17.00. I tried moussaka for the first time. It was delicious, and was a more than ample serving. Every time we needed something, our server was right there, but he wasn't hovering or intrusive. The interior is not fancy and people were not particularly dressed up (at 5:00 o'clock) but I found it very comfortable and relaxing. If you are tired of chain restaurants, you need to give this little gem of a restaurant a try.
