Overpriced, underwhelmed

My standard of comparison with other Greek restaurants is the Mousakka. Their version came out looking impressive (heaping portion). But it was very heavy on the meat and sauce, very light on the eggplant. The other ingredients were overwhelmed by the meat/sauce/brown oil (balsamic?). Also... read more

I am always looking for some good greek food to try, and was told this place was the best around. I have determined that is a lie. Pastisio is my favorite greek dish to order out, because it's time consuming and messy to make at home. The topping was almost non existent, the meat was flavorless, and the ziti was... More

Chicken livers used to be on the regular menu, but not any more. Nevertheless, twice when I have been there, I requested chicken livers -- and got them! Just really great food and great staff. Never too crowded either. Why not? Should be.

This is my 2nd review I've written about the family owned and operated Athens restaurant. I've eaten the lamb chops at the famous Chalet Suisse in Aruba, and I can truly say the lamb chops at the Athens are just as good, twice the size, and half the price. 38 years ago, the Athens was the place to go, filled...

Went here on a Friday night. The staff was extremely nice and went over the top to make sure we were satisfied with everything. Everyone that works there is family and they are extremely friendly and professional. They talked to us about their restaurant and ho everything is made fresh in the kitchen. They even buy the entire lamb and... More

If you're looking for authentic Greek ethnic food, Athens Restaurant is the place for you. The food here is the absolute best. My husband and I have been coming to this family-owned restaurant for years and we've always raved about the quality and quantity of the food. Their lamb chops are to die for as are the Greek meatballs. One... More

Athens is tucked on a side street not far from the Verizon Center. Going there is like going back in time...family owned, local wait staff, old fashioned décor...just charming! Great Greek menu, large portions, specials every day (we especially like the Sunday specials). The lamb is to die for! If you haven't been there, you must try it!

Last Saturday we went out to dinner and let our friends pick the place. As we entered the restaurant at 530 pm I became a little skeptical because there was only one other party eating dinner. Boy, my first impression was totally off base. The menu was very resonably priced. My dinner was the lamb chops which they butterfly giving... More
