“Only Chicago has the best Greek restaurants”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

Fresh fish: they had it displayed as you walked in; so I shared one, one I wasn't familiar with; broiled so good; and a glass of a Greek chard which went perfectly well with the food. I don't know if I've ever been to their downtown restaurant because it's been a long time since I went to Greek Town; this was perfect. And the service: Supreme. I wish I could remember the name of the waiter; he was excellent too.

“Best in Chicago”
Reviewed 9 June 2014 via mobile

Take it from someone that is 100% Greek. This is the best and most authentic food and atmosphere around. Tremendous appetizers, meats, seafood and origin wines. If you don't know what to order, ask your waiter for guidance. Both Greek Town and Lombard locations are equally good.

“Fresh Greek Food”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

Was in the mood for Greek food so decided to give this place try. I was definitely pleased with the food. We ordered the saganaki for an appetizer and I got the lamb kabob special. Delicious! The waiter we had was a bit unenthused, but all in all I was pretty satisfied. They are also great at refilling water often, but I will say it would save them a lot of extra work if they just got larger water glasses.

“Authencity”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

if you want ethic Greek food this is the place. The gyro meat is not Kronkos it is lamb and quite different if you are use to fast food gyros. The Greek chicken was sooooooooooooooo good.
The staff was excellent with the large amount of friends and family at our visit.

“Fresh Fish”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

Fres fish flown in from Greece was quite a surprise. Eaten her 5 times and food never disappointed. Best dishes were actually the combo platters. Large parties accepted but don't ask for separate checks for parties of any size!
