I have visited there several times in the past and really liked the food and friendly service. My kids (13 and 7) love the flaming cheese, so we went today just for that. We decided to each get our own and were looking at the menu for something else we could share that was vegetarian (since I am vegetarian) that... More

I know what you're thinking, "Why on earth would you look for a Greek Restaurant in Colorado?" but that's what we felt like eating, and when I googled "Best Greek Restaurant in Denver", I got the Athenian. So it's like the ONLY Greek restaurant in Denver -- in the parking lot of a suburban mall. Pros: friendly wait staff, good... More

Always ask about the specials and hope they have either a rack of lamb, Captains plate (shrimp, steak, fish) or lamb shank...all are huge meals and wonderful. Mediterranean pasta is... More

I love this place so much. Being owned an operated by Greeks, the decor is spot on and when you walk in the door you feel like you're walking into a small piece of Greece. The food is always consistently great, the service is attentive and friendly, and it's just an all around great place. The only downside is the... More

Great little family owned restaurant. Authentic Greek staff who were very friendly and attentive. Food was awesome and served family style. A small platter is more than enough for three people. We had a great time.
