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

Flavorful Greek dishes, friendly and attentive service, in a unique venue. Railroad and/or history buffs will appreciate a look around the renovated Union Station. We especially enjoyed the lamb shank - huge portions yet extremely tender. Very reasonably-priced entrees.

This restaurant is a true find and jewel in St Paul. Unique, good and really reasonable. The Union Depot has just been renovated and is returning as a true train, transit and event destination. The facility is spectacular, a mini Grand Central, but in the center is a restaurant that is surprisingly good. Christos is well known as one of... More

Very high quality food and service at the lunch buffet. The gyros was one of the best i've ever had. Lots of veggie, hummus, and other items too. Fantastic authentic Greek coffee! I look forward to going back.

Went with family and friends to see the "new" Christo's in the Union Depot. Re-construction of Union Depot caused the restaurant to temporarily close but they are open for business again. Food is still very good and the renovations make for very beautiful surroundings. Try the "Iliad" combo to get a taste of quite a few things (gyro, spanikopita, stuffed... More

Located in the old St. Paul rail station which I thought created a nice atmosphere. Menu included a wide variety of dinner selections, I enjoyed the braised lamb shank which was nicely prepared. Very limited and low end wine selection and when the wine was served, it was poured into a small square, stemless glass, similar to a Mexican beer... More

Recently 6 of us, 4 adults and 2 children ate at Christo's in Union Station. This was the second time we've eaten there and we were, once again, very happy with the food and service. The restaurant itself is impressive and service is very good. We ordered a variety of items and the quantities were enormous. We began with the... More

The St. Paul Christos is located in the lobby of St. Paul's downtown train station. It's a beautiful setting, and the food is terrific. Several family members and I recently enjoyed a weekday lunch. Food was excellent, not just good. You can order either from the menu or enjoy the buffet. We loved the buffet. And of course, it's very... More

Our group of four first visited Christos two years ago, before the depot was renovated. There have been many changes, most of them favorable. The food seemed better, and the portions were even larger than before. Gone is the raised platform that the tables were on, but the floor-level seating is attractive and allows the huge room to be used... More
