This little restaurant in a strip mall is not at all what I expected from its facade. It is lovely inside and the food was quite good. The service was efficient. The complimentary olive bowl was a nice touch. My daughters loved that. The prices were higher than I anticipated but the food was better than expected so it made... More

My wife and I have been going to Greek City for a few years now, and we have brought many friends to enjoy what is in our opinion the best Greek Restaurant in the area. Teddy and Jimmy are very accommodating especially to their "regulars" like us. The Grilled Octapodi and Calamari appetizer is a must! We have had this... More

Don't let the aging strip mall location between a pizza joint and Five Guys fool you. Behind the plain exterior, a beautifully decorated restaurant serving excellently prepared Greek food awaits. The service was attentive and everything we ordered was delicious, especially the items from the grill. The lamb chops and Biftecki were particularly good. Only the lemon potatoes were not... More

My wife and I had dinner at Greek City. This was the second time we have eaten here. The food is very good. The lemon chicken soup is good but not nearly as good as my wife's. I had lamb souvlaki and my wife had chicken souvlaki. The food was well prepared. The lamb and the chicken were very tender.... More

I went here with nine friends on a Sunday night. We were seated promptly at a very nice round table which made our conversations during dinner much nicer than being at a rectangular table. Service was very good. The waiter was very knowledgeable and friendly. All nine of us enjoyed a variety of appetizers, entrees and desserts. A bonus was... More

Food is consistently fine in this out of the way shopping mall off Rt. 17. My husband and I come every few weeks for lunch ( portions are so generous we often bring home enough for another meal). We love the lamb souvlaki, lamb shanks, fresh fish, casseroles such as youvetsi. Friends have joined us some evenings and are always... More

This was a bad experience from start to finish. After being seated, the waiter came over immediately and asked if we were ready to order. Really? Then when we asked about menu items, he looked annoyed and didn't really have answers. Awkward. We ordered. When we got there it was empty but quickly filled up, and I heard wait staff... More

Located in the Kohl's shopping center in Ramsey. It is open for lunch and dinner 7 days a week. Also, it is a BYOB. It has become very popular, so reservations are recommended for Friday and Saturday nights. We have been coming here for several years. The food is consistently good whether for lunch or dinner. The taziki appetizer is... More
