Our party of 6 arrived at 8 p.m. The restaurant was packed but lively. We were seated immediately and our wait staff was immediately present. Drinks were immediately served as were our appetizers. Each of us ordered a different entree. The food arrived about 15 minutes later. It arrived hot... read more

We eat here fairly often and generally love the food, but salads are uniformly disappointing because the lettuce is always sitting in a puddle of water. Perhaps they store it that way. When you add a vinaigrette dressing, it's almost like eating soup. On our most recent visit the Greek salad included greens with stems several inches long and lettuce... More

A friendly greeter opened the door making it easy on me with my mother's wheelchair. We sat by a huge display case of Greek desserts. Being both calorie and nutrient conscious I was surprised at the variety of items for all ages and desires and our waitor, Josh, patiently answered our questions about the large number of Greek items. It... More

If you are looking for a great meal in Lincoln, NE, you won't go wrong picking the Parthenon. This Greek restaurant is one of those spots where they take the time to make things from scratch and truly care about the dining experience of their customers. The fish is superb--it is flown in fresh daily--and the ribeye may well be... More

We love the Parthenon! The eggplant feta, the baklava, the tzatziki and pita, the bananas foster, oh my, the list of amazing dishes is too long! They also have a really fun Fat Tuesday celebration!

I went to one of the wine dinners. Made the mistake of assuming that they would group people together. Don't go alone unless you don't mind sitting alone during one of these events. I prefer sitting with others so I can discuss the wine/food. However even with that bummer, the food and wine were delicious. I would highly recommend going... More

We stopped in for lunch one day because other restaurants nearby had a wait. I am very pleased we stopped and we will definitely be back. Very impressive wine list from what I remember. We weren't drinking wine, so didn't spend a lot of time examining. Plenty of options for food, server was very knowledgeable, and even checked on dietary... More

We've been to The Parthenon several times but hadn't been there for a couple years as there seemed to always be somewhere else we needed to be while in town. We made the decision to make a special trip to Lincoln just to eat at The Parthenon. We invited our son, daughter-in-law and 2 year old granddaughter to join us.... More

We had tried to eat at another restaurant earlier but didn't want to wait for the 1 1/2 hrs we were greeted with. We just happened to see this place not far from our original destination. We are so glad we found it. In one word....AWESOME!. Not only was this Greek food wonderfully prepared and seasoned, it was delicious no... More
