Nice Restaurant

After traveling all day I wanted a bite to eat that wasn't fast food. I got a cup of soup and a side of tabouli. The service was great, the food was ample and tasty and the venue was nice enough. I went at an odd hour so I was practically the only one there. I would like to go... read more

Wonderful as always. Attentive waiter. Never a bad experience. If you like desserts be sure to check out their selections. One of our Lincoln favorites.

We generally love this restaurant but tonight on New Years Eve opted for curbside carryout. Our orderer was slow and cold coming out. When got home they omitted the salad And the salmon portion was tiny. When I called they apologized and said they were really busy and would mail a coupon. That doesn't help me tonight. Don't order takeout... More

Went here with family during Christmas vacation and the food was fantastic. Moussaka with side of beets, trout with roasted squash and the spinach pie were all truly gourmet quality with a reasonable price. I try to come here whenever we are in town because it's always amazing.

I ate here with my wife and son last Monday before Thanksgiving. Due to the relatively high rating on TripAdvisor as well as things we had heard by word of mouth, we were expecting this to be a pretty good restaurant. We were wrong. When we arrived and before we ordered, I overheard some other diners saying that they always... More

I've been here many times and have yet to experience a less than stellar visit in all aspects. This place has become an easy winner when deciding on a spot to eat.

The food is exceptional, the deserts are even better, and the staff is knowledgeable and cater well to the needs of the client. They have a wonderful selection on the menu, and the daily features always impress. Enjoy!

Stuffed Squash special was good. Lemon Chicken soup was tasty. The deserts were nicely home-made and would be good stand alone, but sometime unnecessarily put in microwave and too sweet when drizzled with caramel and vanilla syrup (overkill).

Went to The Parthenon for lunch today. After eating at Alihans in Chicago a couple months ago, I was really looking forward to eating at another Greek restaurant. I ordered the Lamb Souvlaka which is what I got in Chicago. Food came out quickly, unfortunately, right away I could tell my lamb was overcooked. It was charred to crisp black... More
