We called and made reservation for 13 people without any problems. It was my godfather's 79th bday. They were incredible. The girl who took care if us was amazing (sorry, can't remember her name) but her attention to our table was excellent. We tasted it a little bit of everything. The flaming cheese as always was spectacular , the appetizers,... More

If you are in the mood for some delicious Greek food, you have to visit this restaurant. The food is absolutely amazing. Everything I tasted during my visit was rich and flavorful. The service was also attentive and friendly. Overall, we had a great dinner experience and would definitely return.

Being Greek myself I always try to support Greek restaurants when traveling. However this one was not to my liking at all. The only thing Greek about this place was the names on the menu. The food was tasteless and the moussaka was not fresh. Grilled octopus tasted like rubber.... We did however have a great waitress...

I've eaten here a few times in recent years, but the last visit was not as great as I expected. Hummus and pita were good, as was Saganaki. However the skewers were dry and tough. Probably won't return, as there are better Greek restaurants in Lauderdale.

My family and I met a group of friends there last Friday night. We had a nice group of tables inside. We ordered lots of different items including pita and hummus (delicious), pizzas (very tasty), meatballs (YUM), greek salads (large but needed extra dressing), and some nice cocktails. Overall the food was above average and cooked well. Even though we... More

We had drinks and dinner here July 4 and really enjoyed it. The restaurant has been redesigned and looks great. The food is very good and authentic. The staff was very attentive and we received great service. I highly recommend this restaurant if your in Lauderdale by the sea.

We always go to Athena when we visit Lauderdale. They give you free hummus and pita. I love their fried Zucchini sticks, Greek salad and homemade sangria. Portions are large and reasonay priced.

We came across this place and thought we would cool off on a corner table. The atmosphere was strange and the waitress very serious. Cannot comment on the food but it seemed expensive for a quick drink.

We read some good reviews about this restaurant and decided to try it during our last visit. May be we just had a hard luck that day because we didn't find this restaurant upto our expectations. Firstly, since it was raining when we visited this place so we couldn't sit outside but the inside was also nice and open but... More
