How can a place go so downhill in just one year? My husband's dinner consisted of a mound of rice with 4 mathematically placed shrimp leaning against it, all gravied up with a pink sauce. It looked like horrible nursing home food. I had the sampler platter - it was an embarrassment. And the side dish of zucchini and potatoes.....greasy... More

Yum yum, I love lamb and Greek cuisine. Went here for Sunday Dinner, the atmosphere is great and so is the food. Will definitely return soon. It deserves more than 4 stars but it is not a 5 yet.

Melanthios - just do it. Of all the Greek places I've eaten, including highly rated, iconic Greek restaurants with a huge fan base, Melathios is THE BEST. Authentic, delicious, generous... I can't stop thinking about the meal! We split the pastitsio and the European gyro platter; it was plenty and the waitstaff was wonderful. Honestly, the best Greek meal I've... More

I'm in the city for a few days and a friend brought me here tonight for dinner and I must say the food was absolutely marvelous! Great Greek cuisine at a good price. I will be back!

Had been to this place a few times and enjoyed it, the staff were always friendly. Until last night. The waiter was unhelpful from the beginning, got the order wrong, would not give my nine year old daughter one chicken skewer instead of three saying 'we used to do that but we don't anymore', recommended the most expensive wine on...

My friend and I were excited to find fresh grilled fish in this Lakeview restaurant. We began our meal with a shared tzatziki appetizer (served with a loaf of fresh bread, $4) and we both ordered the grilled salmon ($26 each). The large filet of salmon was perfectly cooked and served with generous portions of grilled peppers, grilled asparagus and... More

John was friendly and helpful, making good recommendations based on what I told him. The lavraki was good and the vegetables went well and were very Greek in preparation. The coffee brought back fond memories of Greece. Atmosphere good and not too noisy so you can have a conversation. Worth a try if you want Greek for a change.
