Stumbled upon...

Decided to go on a whim and was very pleased. The food, service, atmosphere, and amenities were excellent. Some of the best Greek food I've had the pleasure of eating. Highly recommend.

Ate here as part of a group of office workers. When they told me where we would eat, I almost groaned, I thought it would be something dreadful. Imagine my surprise when I walked in and it was like stepping from one world into another. Don't be fooled by the outside and the area, the inside of the restaurant is... More

I've been meaning to go in here ever since peeking inside while walking past. I did not expect such a nice looking restaurant to be located in such a seedy part of downtown. I invited myself along with a group of singers rehearsing at the Winspear, and had a delightful lunch. Friendly, attentive service. Tasty food. Good portions. Everyone was... More

This restaurant is a bit of a hidden jem on 97 Street. I have always enjoyed the rustic feel of the restaurant and overall, the food is decent and tasty. There is certainly lots of selections on the menu to keep both particular and adventurous eaters very happy. The only slight downside to my meal was that I thought the... More

We went there for lunch so they had some specials for a good price. Everything tasted great -fresh and just off the grill-yammm! I do recommend this place to everyone. Nice vintage interior, deem lights:-), good food! Even fancy restaurants cannot beat that! I guess nowadays people go more for looks, what a shame.

I went to the Oil Lamp last night before heading off to the symphony. I would definitely go back. I was there around 6 and it wasn't very busy. The service was great. One woman was serving about 6 or 7 tables but you'd never know. She was friendly and personable and answered all the questions we had. She even... More

We went to this restaurant primarily because it was within walking distance of the hotel and we all (family of five) like Greek food; we are so glad we did. The food was excellent, better than at our favourite Greek at home! We were a bit nervous at first as the neighbourhood was deserted and seemed almost run down, and... More

A few of us went out for lunch because of a going away and we choose the Oil Lamp. It was an interesting experience. I had the roast beef melt which included potatoes and veggies. Very tasty and the portions were good. The price of around $11 was reasonable. Others in my group had a variety of other dishes that... More
