We go to this restaurant frequently during the year. Our friend went there the first night it opened years ago. It is family owned and they greet you like family. Service is superb. The Saganaki (fried cheese) is wonderful and draws attention to your table because of the flames. Prices are reasonable. We always get the mixed meat platters and... More

We first visited Athenian when we moved from Europe back in 2005. We had just left a summer vacation in Greece and were missing the food. When we found Athenian, it was a must visit. We felt we were in a good position to determine how good Athenian's food was compared to what we had only a short time prior.... More

Family owned business that has authentic Greek cuisine as we were treated to an excellent dinner with appetizers & drinks with superb quality lamb chops not to mention the desert to go was made from scratch and fresh. A must for Greek lovers..

Went here for lunch. Restaurant was pretty empty, but even so the service was pretty slow. Waitress forgot several items. When the food arrived it was OK. Gyro meat was excellent, pastitsio was very good, lamb chops were great, but the salads and avgolemono soup were quite bad. Overall, there are definitely better Greek restaurants in the Denver area.!

I met a long time friend here for breakfast and I was a bit taken back when I walked through the doors. I am not sure why I had never visited this place before. It's so close to my house and now after going once I will return. The atmosphere is quite unique. The decorations that adorn the walls are... More

If you are in the Aurora area for breakfast stop by the Athenian. Tom, the owner makes the best pancakes. Bloody Marys are yummy. My favorite entree is the vegetarian skillet, very, very good. A family oriented restaurant. Kids menu has funny face pancakes-cute. Opa!!

We had the pleasure of eating here with a group of seven. We ordered the saganaki (flaming cheese) and it was delicious! We all had the chicken orzo soup and loved its creaminess. We ordered and shared from two giant platters offered, and everything we had was outstanding. We were treated like family and really enjoyed the complimentary ouzo at... More

Amazing little restaurant with a true Greek style and menu. If you like Greek food, this is a must stop. Waitresses are great and make the experience even better. 4 of us went, all had different items, all great, we sampled each other's. Save room for dessert, there great.
