Tasty, Plentiful Greek Food

This is an old-time Greek restaurant, very well established in the Greek Town section of Chicago, IL. The waiters are of Greek descent and very proper. Bus boys are very efficient. The ambiance is very nice. They've several rooms and a banquet room and a bar. Restrooms clean. Very pretty inside. We... read more

Great food, cooked in the traditional style. Pleasant wait staff. Lovely ambience. Not our first choice, but definitely our second.

I am Greek and eat regularly in Chicago's Greek Town neighborhood. It had been quite some time since I had visited the Parthenon which I have always viewed as very touristy and only average in food quality. My recent visit did not change my opinion. The first bad sign was that the bread brought to our table was not fresh,... More

Reasonable clean place. Good service and good food. Beer and wine beer prices were high for the quality. Service at our table was friendly, prompt and polite

In anticipation, three of us trudged from The Loop to South Halsted Greektown to try this restaurant. We are of Greek-Canadian heritage and were looking forward to something tasty. The Parthenon was just about the WORST Greek food we've ever had! Service was reasonably prompt. Once seated at the table, we order the set dinner for three. The appetizers came... More

I've been to the Parthenon several times, and now when I am in Chicago I always head here for a meal. The food and wine are delicious, the service has always been excellent, and you always have a great time because the atmosphere is fun and light-hearted. Also, the prices are surprisingly affordable for how excellent the food/service/atmosphere are. Two... More

We visit Parthenon at least 2-3 times a year to have dinner and have always found it to be excellent. This past Saturday was one of the most awful experiences we have had at ANY restaurant, and will not go back (you know it is bad when your waiter agrees with you that the place has gone downhill). First was... More

I cannot say enough good things about is place. My coworker (a Chicago native) says this is the only Place in Greektown and I can see why! We ordered the smallest family-style meal, which fed 12 people with enough leftovers for 3-4 more. We had the octopus, greek salad, flaming cheese and gyro appetizers. Redcina white wine is delish but... More

On a recent visit to Chicago I was taken by friends to a traditional favorite Greek restaurant in Logan Square or "Greektown". We where greeted by a friendly staff that seated us immediately since we had made reservations. Ordered one of my favs Flaming Cheese for an appetizer which they light up right by the table and it was delicious.... More

We were in the mood to explore a real neighborhood, and a friend had recommended the Parthenon, in Greektown. The portions were very large, and some of the dishes were first-rate, especially the spanakopita appetizer. The service was friendly and prompt. And Greektown (just west of downtown Chicago) is a great starting place for a walk north through some lovely... More
