This is one of the best places I have had Greek food. Having visited Greece on several occasions the food is authentic. The staff was fast and friendly. We enjoyed the food and we tried several things. I would strongly encourage you to try it.

This restaurant is located in the West Loop, a block from our hotel, the Crown Plaza Metro. The food was exceptional and the portions large. My husband had the combination plate and I had the salmon. We rounded out the meal with a baklava (large enough to share) and Greek coffee. The decor and music gave us the feeking we... More

After viewing the outstanding traveling exhibit on Ancient Greece, we dined at this very large restaurant in Greek Town on Sunday afternoon. The restaurant is broke into several medium sized rooms with fireplaces, stained glass scenes and a nice overall Greek decor. A large menu offers many Greek options from salads, lamb and chicken dishes, large quantity of seafood plus... More

Good to know there are still Greek restaurants that give lawyers the middle finger not afraid to lite their saganaki! Dolmades with beef and lamb! Outstanding lamb in tomato sauce. Equally excellent was the sea bass. Surprised by the lima bean appetizer. Calamari the only average plate. Excellent service. Order the baklava!

Few places are as good for a group dinner as Greek Islands. They prepare all the Greek classics exceptionally well -- cold and hot appetizers, meat and fish mains, and salads. They tout their lamb chops and it is fully justified -- flavorful, juicy, and grilled just right. The wine list is larger than in most Greek restaurants and reasonably... More

This place is Old School. Not trendy. Not flashy. The food is consistent and seems authentic. It's a friendly atmosphere for groups, dates, families and fun. Parking is complimentary - huge bonus. Good Chicago tradition when visiting or for the locals!

We went there with our kids(adults) for dinner, although we typically go on Sunday nights. We had tormosalata, saganaki,sea bass, white fish, grilled calamari, large house salad for the table and one baklava. Everything was fabulous, service by Victor was attentive and we washed it down with a bottle of red GREEK wine and a few glasses of roditis. This... More
