I cant say this was the best greek food I've had in Chicago but it was a very enjoyable experience. The octopus was quite fresh. All their salads are great, very good appetizers.

With it's popular festive atmosphere, Greek Islands has been a place to go with family and friends for many years, especially for celebrations. Over time I am sad to see that they have become less attentive to the details that make a dining experience memorable, especially the food itself. Some items were great - the saganaki with it's OPAA!, mousaka,... More

My partner and I fancied Greek food and as this restaurant was rated so highly we decided to go here. We can't understand how this restaurant has such high/positive ratings. Firstly, the venue is huge and they seem to work on a 'get people in and out as fast as possible' rule. The decor/setting etc is ok, but the food... More

With so many terrific places to eat in Chicago this place was a major disappointment. On their web site there is a positive blurb by Fodor's & Rachel Ray, the concierge said we couldn't go wrong with any of the places in the Greek area, our Greek cab driver said he had eaten there the previous night & had a...

It's their fault to get me addicted to their food, I had no choice but to keep on coming. Brought customers from Japan, China and Europe and they cannot stop to praise it.

My husband and I ate here for lunch on a Friday when we visited chicago for the weekend. The flaming cheese was yummy a definite must have. My husband loved the gyro which was soo much food we probably could have shared it. I had the shrimp appetizer which was tasty.

The reviews were true. Went to Greek Islands while in Chicago. Wonderful service! Food came quickly! Flaming cheese was tasty! dolmades and lamb plus a side of artichokes in a lemon sauce were some of the best I have eaten! Dessert and Greek coffee were a perfect finish! If you love Greek food, you must go here!

Because I am Greek, I am always hesitant of Greek restaurants. I can honestly say, though, that this was Greek food like my mom makes. The portions were very large --- enough to share, in fact, and it was all good. From the tzatziki, skordalia, and keftedakia appetizers to the gyro, spanakopita, and baked chicken entrees, we were impressed. We... More
