Delicious, authentic Greek

Wow, loved Greektown! This food was great and we had Greek wine for the first time which was great too. The server showed us a map of where Greek wines were made and we picked the one we wanted from the map. Delicious fresh tsaziki sauce and warm pita was the highlight.

This is a great Greek restaurant. I have been coming here since the seventies and have visited it many, many times, never disappointed! On several occasions, when I lived in Austin, Tx, I took the train up to Chicago, had lunch at The Parthenon, and took the next train back to Austin! A bit extreme, but that's how much I... More

Twenty year ago, the Parthenon use to be the only place I would eat in Greek town. We started branching out to other restaurants but recently decided to have our anniversary dinner at the Parthenon. As soon as we sat down the waiter was on us for our drink orders. I already knew which wine I wanted but he seemed... More

Excellent Greek food in downtown Chicago. Everything was fresh,well prepared and seasoned. Homemade Roditas is very good and sneaks up on you ! The restaurant is not fancy nor pretentious, casual dress. Lamb is king here, so if you like lamb, I don't think you will be disappointed. Service was attentive without smothering

Really nice people. Food was not great they did give discount because all the plates of the 7 people went back full. It's like all the food is reheated from the fridge.

This Classic Greek restaurant featured in a book on Route 66 so had to be sampled before we started our drive. We weren't disappointed. The flaming saganaki was a spectacular in its delivery and tasted lovely. Portions of braised lamb, chicken spanaki, spanakopita ad pork tigania were very generous, nicely cooked and tasty. Waitstaff were helpful and attentive.

We met friends from Chicago area who are regulars at the Parthenon for lunch on a Friday afternoon. It was a completely fun and delicious visit! We started off with Rodytis wine, which may not be everyone's cup of tea, but for us, it was very tasty with the meals to follow. We enjoyed the appetizers of saganacki and (pardon... More

Greek restaurants are plentiful along Halstead but there are some which stand out and this is one of them. Good service, food, ambiance, and plentiful portions. Not too busy Friday night during lent.
