Despite being in a strip mall (a couple of doors down from a 5 Guys), the inside of the restaurant is elegant and the authentic Greek food is outstanding. The fresh grilled fish of the day particularly the Branzino is always a good choice. When crowded, the room can be a bit noisy due to the hard surfaces reflecting sound.One... More

You have to look for Greek City as it's easy to miss. Greek City is located in the Kohl's shopping center on route 17 north in Ramsey, NJ. Once inside the restaurant you will most lightly he greeted by the owner, a friendly & handsome gentleman. The restaurant is lovely with understated attractive decor. The staff is friendly & service... More

This is a reliable and good BYOB Greek storefront that always has excellent food and a variety of good specials. The service can be spotty at times-some servers are open and gregarious and others quiet and going through the motions. Fun with a group and the desserts are very good as well.

Tucked away in a mall anchored by a Staples and Kohl's is the greatest surprise in Ramsey, NJ. Once in the door of Greek City you are transported to a dining experience you might expect in Athens. Decor, service and most importantly the food was outstanding. Having driven past this stretch of route 17 for years, I now know there... More

I have been here several times. The food is always excellent. Last time I had the calamari stuffed with feta and spinach which was to die for. Entrees included grilled shrimp and a spinach and bok choy combination that was fantastic. The word is out on this place, so if you want to sit in a booth definitely make a... More

This is the second time at this restaurant. The first time we sat in a booth. It helped reduce the noise but the booths are not vey comfortable. This time we sat at a table against the wall. The noise level was high and it was hard to talk at the table. But if the food is more important to... More

This restaurant can get busy but they always welcome you and get you in. The greek chips are to die for, they always have fresh fish and your standards all fresh and delicious! The staff works hard! BYOB

Fabulous moussaka, bronzini and of course, lamb. This is a place you can go to regularly, be comfortable and enjoy good food.

The food here is average, nothing great, nothing terrible. However, when dining out to a BYOB place, I expect to have a nice and friendly staff wait on me. This place lacked that. The staff pretty much stared my friend and I down to the point where it was uncomfortable. Then, the owner had the nerve to make a comment... More

I went here for a work lunch. The resturant is unassuming from the outside. The inside is really beautiful! The service was very attentive. I got a greek salad with grilled calamari. The salad was pretty much what I would expect and was on point. The calamari were yummy! They were cooked just right and plentiful. One tip: Try to... More
