This is our favorite restaurant anywhere. We've been there perhaps a hundred times. The food is always excellent and freshly prepared. It is authentic Greek fare. The wines are perfect and the service is unparalleled. The ambiance, whether a quiet table indoors, or a patio table watching the sunset, is unique. Greek music is always playing softly. The staff and... More

Everything at the Parthenon is amazing. I would rather go here than any other place in Lincoln. A wide variety on the menu so people who are not sure about Greek will have plenty to try.

Went with friends and the Parthenon was great. Excellent food and good service. The atmosphere was perfect for sitting and chatting with friends over dinner. Never felt rushed to eat and go.

By far the best food in Lincoln. George and his crew put out a fantastic meal using only the best ingredients. The staff is well trained and helpful with some of the more difficult to pronounce Greek words. The desert menu is out of this world! So many different well made treats that you will not be able to choose.... More

Our food was delicious! We enjoyed our drinks and our time there. Our server was not up to par, but the food made up for it. Baklava was a great dessert!

Nice place, good food, good location, pleasant staff, decent prices. A good place to bring family, friends or a date! Anytime that I have ever had any problems, the staff have always taken fast action to fix the problem. I can recommend the Parthenon, and have eaten there for many years.

Love this place greatly. My own Greek family loves to visit when they are in town visiting. My father enjoys talking about how it reminds him of his own grandmothers cooking in the kitchen. If you're a dessert lover the one I recommend is the baklava cheesecake. Absolutely THE BEST.

This was our first trip to the Parthenon and was on an early Sunday evening. We found the Parthenon on Trip Advisor and took the relatively high rating to heart and decided to give it a try. We typically enjoy Greek food and were not disappointed in the dishes we were served here. Our main course was the leg of... More

Visited by parents and adults kids. Have visited several times and enjoyed all. Began meal with shots of ouzo. A must! Then Saganaki (pan-seared cheese appetizer), pita bread, and Tzatziki. Hubby had the Pork Souvlaki. Two had the Gyro Platter. Another a pizza. Another the Athenian Salad. I had the Herb Crusted Salmon Greek Salad (see photo). A shared piece... More
