Reviewed 22 June 2014

Last stop on city west neighbourhood tour. Best Greek food out of Greece ever. Opt for combo platter to start, little taste of everything

“Over Cooked Food”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

We have been going to this restaurant for a least 20 years. The last few visits were the same. Great service and atmosphere, BUT Cold overcooked food. Whole Sea bass pre-made and Mushy, Spinach from steamtable and cold. all side vegges not even warm.
We would not go back. Tired of complaining. They just can't get it right..

“Great food in the center of town (Chicago)”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

There was a great selection of food and drinks. There was five of us and we each had something different. All of us were very happy with our selections. Price was reasonable, especially for Chicago, and it was within walking distance of our hotel. The restaurant had outdoor and indoor seating, and, with its marvelous waterfall, it was just beautiful. There also was an additional section that was outdoors, but had a sliding roof that could be closed in inclement weather. Service was outstanding and the waiters were very helpful when we asked for recommendations.
We would definitely come back again.

“Great patio!”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

They have an awesome patio that has a retractible roof. I think it is one of the best patios in Chicago. Food is very good, expecially the riblets and kikonisto (braised lamb). It gets crowded on weekend evenings.

“You'll think you're on a Greek island”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

Not that other restaurant, but a real Greek island. Athena's outdoor patio and waterfall offer the closest experience to my fantasy of a visit to a Greek island -- sunny and warm with fine food. I have been here both in winter and summer and can't decide which is a better time - in the winter the patio is a glass-covered paradise and in the summer, it's fresh open air, waterfall sounds and umbrellas. You will find all of your favorite Greek foods. Our waiter was very accommodating in letting us taste 2-3 wines before deciding. Both the wine and food menus are extensive - you will find something you'll love. The service is professional and friendly.
