Comforting Vegan Soup

What a gem. Many signature dishes with a comforting feeling. We had a group of eight and we shared everything. I enjoyed every dish and will be coming back. I'm so happy someone introduced me to this place, will be coming back regularly.

Wife and I just ate dinner there to celebrate our anniversary. I've eaten there before, but always at lunch. Dinner was fantastic. Our waitress was perfect, charming, and full of information. I was talked into the special Greek dish of lamb shoulder and cracked wheat. Wow! Had the flaming cheese with fresh warm pita bread. My wife ordered the lemon-lamb... More

You can never go wrong with this wonderful Greek restaurant in NE. Everything is good, appetizers (particularly Skordalia and artichoke hearts), all the borekas, the gyros. The price is reasonable and the service friendly and responsive. Mythos beer also great.

After going to the Minneapolis Institute of Arts to see the Italian Style exhibit, a friend and I stopped at this restaurant where she had been before, but I visited for the first time. Arriving at 12:30 it was not easy to find an empty parking meter but we persevered. I didn't enjoy the 2 block walk in cold, windy... More

We attended my nephews rehearsal dinner at Gardens of Salonica Friday night and what a surprise find. We had not been at a Greek venue for a long time while visiting Minneapolis. We will now have it on our list to visit again. They are closed Monday, so keep that in mind. They handled a party of 60 with ease.... More

Anna is always cooking up some delightful food. Have you ever had stuffed pumpkin blossoms? Or stuff squid, one of Anna's signature dishes? Simply delicious. You can't go wrong with their chicken souvlaki, if you want something simpler. Great ambiance, great food and a great selection of wine/beer. I have been here for lunch and dinner and go monthly.

Nice little restaurant with decent atmosphere. Appetizers were better than the entrees, but service and overall food quality pretty good. Entrees were smaller than expected and didn't come with any sides which was disappointing. Would recommend ordering an assortment of the excellent appetizers and a bottle of Retsina.

Not your standard fare Greek food restaurant... Everything is fresh and interesting on the menu. But don't just stop on the menu. The chef is always experimenting with new ingredients and new techniques. She is one of the most creative chefs operating in the Minneapolis food scene. We;vw eaten here several times and have never had a bad meal or... More

Reservations are definitely suggested, especially on the weekends. Wonderful food selection, very nice, well paced service. Not your standard menu, I agree with several of the other reviews. The contemporary ambiance is clean, fresh, light & bright with some mammoth scuptured pieces. The adjoing room offers more tables and a full service bar. Greek Mythos beer is highly recommended.

Not your Greek diner fare (although there's certainly nothing wrong with that either), these dishes are elegantly seasoned and imaginatively presented. I particularly like the roasted lamb, the pastistio (sp?) and the mousaka. The mousaka has a wonderful aroma that you can appreciate from the next table!
