We drove into Chicago to try the Athenian Room. We were very dissappointed. The Kalamata chicken did not have real roasted greek potatoes. The small 1/2 chicken was served on french fries with greek dressing. My gyros sandwich was average and overpriced.

7 y/o son: It's good and MEAT! 13 y/o daughter: Enjoyed the outdoor seating and surplus of Tzatziki sauce and olives. Overall a good dining experience. 41 y/o wife/mother: Good value. I enjoyed the delicious slabs of Feta. 40 y/o father/son: I've had better Greek food, but the price was definitely right, the people were friendly, and the service was... More

This unassuming little Greek restaurant is in a fun neighborhood. Parking is a challenge but they have a valet. Food is great - bar adjacent if you would like wine with dinner. We used the valet parking, had a great lunch and when we went to get our car the valet had it waiting! Said he saw us standing up... More

I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food here. It's a quick walk from my apartment and I figured I would give it a try even though it honestly didn't look like anything special from the outside. I heard from a friend that they had great food and they did not disappoint. I love anything with tzatziki and... More

I am a sucker for a Greek restaurant, so this review is automatically biased. This place should be in a film with Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks meeting and failing in love while sharing a dish of Kalamata chicken. The food is what my body craves on a rainy cold Chicago evening. There is one dessert choice and after you... More

The Athenian Room just west of Halsted on Armitage has terrific Greek food, the chicken shish kebab over salad is refreshing on these balmy Summer nights. My husband and I drove through Greektown, tried to find parking there but were unsuccessful. We live in the Lincoln Park/Old Town area and so parking the car and walking was fine with us….especially... More

Outstanding value. The chicken kalamata is a precision roasted marinated half chicken served with a salad and fantastic Greek fries for a paltry $10.00. Perhaps the best bargain in Chicago. No liquor but adjoining bar lets you bring your drinks into the restaurant. The Gyro sandwiches and Greek salads also looked good. I will return

I have been going to this restaurant ever since I was a little girl living in the city. I moved to the suburbs, and every other weekend or so we take the train down to eat at the Athenian Room. It has great home made Greek food and amazing service. The atmosphere is cozy, especially in the winter time. The... More
