Consistently delicious Greek food

I've been here many times. The service is prompt and friendly, and the food is consistently good. I always have the lemon soup.

This is authentic Greek and you can order dishes in all sorts of price and size range. We had a half dozen appetizers, 1 meal and 2 deserts for four of us and it was way too much. White table cloths adorned the tables and the staff was very prompt and accommodating. There is wine and beer here but no... More

Having enjoyed Greek food from coast to coast in the U.S. and in Greece this restaurant disappointed. My companion had moussaka that was advertised to have a bechamel sauce But did not have any sauce and the moussaka was tasteless. My Greek salad with gyros was priced 40% higher than other restaurants for a plate of greens, a few tomato... More

This review is for the Minnetonka location on MN-7, just off I-494 North. It looks like a nice place with, what might be described as, a quiet elegance. The menu is fairly extensive, but we had gone there for dinner with just one menu item in mind---the lamb shank! After having tasted excellent lamb shank dinners in Dearborn, Michigan, and... More

First visit to this restaurant for a birthday dinner. Very casual and comfortable atmosphere. The waiter was very helpful with all our questions about the menu. The meal was very good and priced well. Everyone enjoyed their food and we will be back!

this place has been my family's staple for a Sunday movie followed by dinner. There are no dishes you can go wrong with. There is never a bad time to go. Easily one of my favorites in the Twin Cities.

After visiting the Hapsburg Exhibit at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts on Tuesday, a friend and I decided to visit Cristo's since it had been awhile since both of us had been there. Although we did not have reservations, our wait was short. . . only about five minutes despite the busy time of day. I've never been to Greece... More

Second visit last night, first with family. We just really appreciated the attentive service and non-pretentious atmosphere. The food is phenomenal, a great variety of classics and special items, and the pricing reasonable. The rack of lamb was...wow. Great place to enjoy a leisurely, relaxing meal. This restaurant will be joining our regular rotation, without a doubt! (One possible downside... More

This was one of the best meals we have had ever, We had the rack of lamb special. The lamb was cooked to perfection. The service was exemplary. The baklava was the best I have had since I left Pittsburgh and my Greek neighbor used to make it for us.There was not one thing that I could find wrong with... More

This is the original of what are now several Christos' restaurants in the Twin Cities. We had an Illiad - which is an amazing amount of terrific food for $32 - plenty for two people. Lamb, sausage, soup, salad, potatoes, mousaka, tasiki. REALLY good. Also had appetizer with pita bread and several spreads. We took more than half the food... More
