Good Greek Cuisine if you like Greek Food

Really nice place with great ambiance and very good service. Cuisine is authentic Greek. I did not like it very much but my friends loved it. Lots of vegetarian options. Food will be mostly cooked in olive oil and will also have a lot of herbs. Portions are very good - a single dish will very well... read more

This was the third time we purchased a groupon for this restaurant. Each time the food was excellent. However, this time we had a problem with the service. It took 3 hours for us to have dinner! I am not sure what the problem was. Our waiter seemed very knowledgable and didn't seem to be new. So not sure if... More

Went there last weekend everything is fantastic even if you don't like Greek food from the pork chops to the chicken to the saganaki and baklava finished off with Greek coffee. And of course you need a bottle of wine to go with your dinner. Especially great right before a Chicago Blackhawks game.

Really nice place with great ambiance and very good service. Cuisine is authentic Greek. I did not like it very much but my friends loved it. Lots of vegetarian options. Food will be mostly cooked in olive oil and will also have a lot of herbs. Portions are very good - a single dish will very well suffice two people.

A must for Greek food when I'm in chicago. The food is so delicious and authentic. I am a vegetarian and the vegetarian combination plate tastes so good and enough food to last 2 meals. Also, the flaming cheese appetizer is to die for. The service here is so great. I have never had a server that wasn't overly friendly... More

It couldn't have been better to have Greek food at Zomato foodie meet. Both were new to me and I am glad to have them .... Be it starters or dessert everything served was amazing. I personally liked Saganaki (it was a delightful experience to see cheese with flames) and egg lemon soup.. Greek salad was fresh with perfect seasoning..... More

In the heart of Greektown, the Parthenon has great food and service. Their roasted lamb and homemade gyros are terrific. We also ordered the combination plate, and the dolmades and mousaka were especially good, as well as the Greek-style peas. We didn't try anything too exotic, as we like the usual Greek fare. Our waiter suggested a nice white wine,... More

Worse of the bunch, place was dirty, service poor, food blah and cold or over cooked. I love Greek food but this was bad.

My wife bought a Groupon for this place and we used it on a Friday night after a show at the United Center - we took the bus so I have no idea how expensive valet parking is. We arrived early for our reservation but were seated pretty much at the exact time we reserved even though the place was... More

The saganaki is a MUST! Probably the best I have ever had! Crispy outside, gooey inside. Their fresh bread on the table is great too. EVERY dish I have had there is excellent. The only caveat is their Egg Lemon soup. Not a big fan. I think it's too watery. I like mine to be a little creamier. Otherwise, hands... More

Delicious classic Greek Food and friendly service make this a great location for groups and families. We had a work dinner, the family meal was almost too much food. Each course was well prepared and there was something for everyone, including vegetarians. I have enjoyed this restaurant for many years and it never disappoints.
