“Very Dissappointed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2012

Went there on the 4th of July....place was empty, should have taken that as a sign. It was very warm in there, out side temp.100 degrees, must be tight with the air bill. Gave the man a restaurant.com certificate and he said " Not today new rule for me...its a holiday". No where on the the certificate does it say you can not use on a holiday. He said " Come back tomorrow use it then''. No thanks won't be going back even w/ a certificate. Food was bland and very small portions for the prices. Glasses were dirty and so was the carpeting. Go down the street to Basil's excellent food and atmosphere...should have went there in the first place. Live and learn. OPA!

“hidden treasure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2012

My husband and I first found this wonderful delight a few months ago, and go there at least twice a week now. The food is excellent, much like I remember having with family in Greece. They have a wonderful selection of main courses and fabulous appetizers. The owner is a true character, always joking with customers and basically trying to make people feel at home as well as have an enjoyable, flavorful and memorable time. Since we are there so often, I have tried all most everything on the menu at least once, but as with any restaurant, I have my favorites, but everything I have had there has had outstanding flavor, and the portions are large...always have to take a doggie bad home. It was hard to find the first time, but well worth looking for. This is one restaurant you shouldn't hesitate in trying. Once you try it, you will have to return again and again.

“Big disappointment”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2012

Went there last year and the food was fairly good. Went there tonight, the food was absolutely awful. The lamb was bland, the lemon sauce was anemic, the potatos were flat. I have had many many years of good Greek food (my favorite is the Greek Islands - Halsted Street). I had to send my first meal back, because it had so much pepper and the lamb was tough and overcooked. The salmon was OK, and the vegetables were OK, but very greasy. Our waiter was a kind, sweet young man who was trying so hard to please, but it wasn't his fault. Get a new cook! It was a Friday night, and the place was empty. That alone speaks for itself. If you are in the western suburbs, go to Basil's or Greek Islands West in Lombard. Stay away from this place, it is certainly not truly authentic Greek food. The only good thing was the Baklava!

“Awesome lamb stew...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2011

Small but very intimate Greek restaurant, maybe about 10 tables. The owner is very friendly and accomodating. When it comes to food, SUPERB... The lamb stew dish was very tender and has a mild taste to it, the spices they used are not overwhelming. I think we ordered the appetizer that icludes some olives and feta cheese. 4 stars for the service, 4 stars for the food, 4 stars for the price and 4 stars for the atmosphere. It's worth a try.
