Still tasty Greek food!

It has been quite a few years since we've been to Christo's, so decided to check it out again. The food remains very tasty. I ordered the tomato basil soup and spanakopita. My husband had the garden salad and peppered pork chops. The salad was unremarkable - the typical pale red tomato slices. The... read more

Their lunch buffet has all of the Greek favorites and baklava for desert. I am a fan of lamb gyros and the ones in the buffet do not disappoint. The location is inside Union Depot which I also enjoy.

Christo's lunch buffet is a treat for the senses. Situated inside the newly-restored, historic Union Depot, and completely accessible by skyway (a huge plus for winter months), Christo's offers a remarkable array of choices for lunch-goers. My wife and I truly appreciate the clear descriptions of ingredients--including meat and non-meat-based broths--on all of their buffet options. Tomato basil soup with... More

We met friends for cocktails and drinks at Christo's before an art exhibit. Christo's is located inside the Depot in downtown St. Paul, a space that has been updated and beyond its original splendor! Who cares what we ate or drank the setting was stupendous! The staff was very friendly, prompt and knowledgeable. Drinks and dinner were very reasonable. And... More

Was excited to try this location as we have had good experience at the Minneapolis restaurant over the years. This was a mini adventure for my partner’s birthday. We took the new metro Green Line light rail from Minneapolis to St. Paul to arrive at the beautiful Union Depot. The train was fun and it was interesting to experience the... More

We lucked into finding Christo's, and I'm so glad we did. Here's the short list of what you need know: Location: It's in the old Union Depot building. Gorgeous interior and really fun to be by the Amtrak station. The tables restaurant is in the huge entry hall area. It's so spacious and the ceilings are so high, it's almost... More

Six friends met for dinner and all of us totally enjoyed our dinner. Great variety of Greek Food... service was excellent. Happy hour wine was good. Our waiter was very helpful, making suggestions, stopping back to check on us without being annoying. Can't wait to go back!

If you like Greek food don't miss Christos in the Union Depot down town St. Paul. Lunch buffet has Greek salad bar,chicken, soup, gyros, and so much more. For is always fresh and favorable. Reasonable prices on buffet and entrees. This was our 5 th visit to eat here and one of our favorites.

Lunch Buffett was amazing. $10.95 and every item was great. Baklava for dessert comes with it. Coffee was excellent. Great service. Hidden in the union square building without signage. But what a gem!

I recently went to lunch at Christo's in St. Paul's downtown Union Depot. The buffet was one of the best I have ever been to. The carrot soup was delicious and the meat for the gyros was very tender and the seasoning was great. The baklava served for desert was a great ending to the meal. Staff was very friendly... More
