“Consistently the best!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014

We live in Portland and have enjoyed trying her many restaurants. It is a great treat to have such a wide variety to choose from. However, we always return to Emilitsa's for special occasions or when we're taking family out to dinner. There just isn't anything better.

Last Friday, I had the duck; my wife had the lamb... both were done to perfection. Lovely wines.

We love just being there. It's as if we've found a little restaurant in the Plaka... a trip to Greece without the jet lag! Can't recommend it enough.

“Modern Greek”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2014

Dinner at Emilitsa over Memorial Day weekend was indeed memorable. The server made great wine suggestions and answered all of our questions about the menu. She even filleted the whole daurade at the table. Every dish was light, flavorful and fresh. We will be back!

“great food, service, and atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

We tried a few spots in Portland, and this was the best food - imaginative and interesting without being crazy experimental. The staff gave good service, portion sizes reasonable for the price and quality, and we had plenty of time between courses to catch up with the friends we were with. By 9:30 we were the last people in the place and the staff were still gracious and friendly. I recommend it!

“Superior in every respect.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

Dined with special friends. All of us agree that the cuisine was authentic Greek at the highest level of quality and presentation.
Excellent service and very nice wine list. It will be our first choice in Portland Me.

“A Portland Favorite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

Living in Portland, I have lots of great options for good restaurants but Emilitsa is one of my top 2 or 3 favorites. Great atmosphere and food that isn't overthought. They take simple, fresh ingredients and combine them in ways that keep me wanting to come back (and also make me want to visit Greece).
