Our waitress was wonderful; she clearly recognized we hated the soup & tried to replace it for us (um, no thank you). Salads were okay. All 4 of us ordered different entrees & none were any good. Spent way too much money on an awful meal our last night of vacation.

Bouts of speechlessness (or writer's block) are rare for me, but when it comes to Zaharias, all I can say is No. The (poor) level of service coupled with the bleh, blah and bland menu and poor food quality equals No. Greek Restaurant? Hardly. Greek Salad? Maybe. Our server (Susan, Zusanah, Zuzan, Zuzzanah?) was actually confrontational when I asked for... More

This authentic Greek restaurant is delightful. Everything on the menu is superb, prices are terrific and they treat you like family. The spinach pie is the best on the planet. You'll love absolutely everything about This restaurant and you will come back again and again!

The food was good not great. The outdoor seating was nice. I was not overly impressed with this place but it was nice for something different to do.

Greek salad was delicious but spanakopita was a little too dense. Tzatzik sauce tastes like sour cream and my friend's daughter agreed. I actually squeezed the lemon from my water into it to give it a bite. Gyro was ok as was Chicken Parm. Maybe it was an off night.

Had dinner with friends recently at this restaurant and can honestly say it was one of the worst meals I've ever had in a restaurant. The Greek salad that came with the Seafood Kabob was the only halfway decent tasting part of the meal, in spite of the fact that it had only two small olives and about a teaspoon... More

We went to Zaharias on July 3rd for dinner. We waited for 5+ minutes for a table. When we were seated it was not crowded at all! Our server was Mallory and she was not happy to be there, never once through the evening smiled or showed any kind of "glad you are here" service. Our food was below average... More

Landscaping looks like crap from outside but we decided to try it since we've been years ago. Slowly being updated, and I overheard their getting new booths which is a definite need. Food was okay but not exactly what we ordered. I asked for sausage in my omlet instead of ham and the server said she'd have to charge extra... More

We went, hoping this place would be good!. Nope, it didn't impress us at all. We ordered from the chef special, and there was nothing special it in its preparation. Country fried steak with gravy, mash potatoes and gravy. It looked liked it came out of a box, and popped it into the microwave oven. If it had better days?... More
