Great find

We found this little gem traveling home after a weekend trip. It's a bit hidden in a shopping center but do not be deterred by the location. Once inside, you'll find a nice looking restaurant with fairly upscale decor. It's BYOB which keeps your bill down but be prepared if you want wine or beer... read more

While I enjoyed the meal and service I don't feel Greek City is as good as many other Greek restaurants in the area. We ordered this spinach pie to start, which was good. Our entrees were the lamb souvlaki platter which was somewhat dry and the Greek salad with gyro meat. In this case the gyro meat was also somewhat... More

Was going to go to get pizza but I saw this Greek restaurant and I thought I would give it a try. The service was really good. The prices were not bad for the quality of the food. I had the grilled octous it was so tender. I would definetly try this place if you are in the Ramsey area.

Greek City always provides tasty and authentic Greek food. The seafood is always fresh and moist. The tzatziki and fried zuchhini sticks are favorites. Try it.

After a trip to Bottle King my wife and I found this little gem. Reviews were good so we stopped. The place was busy but we were seated fast. Service was great. My wife has the moussaka and I had the lamb shank special. Both were huge portions and very good. Also had one of our bottles of wine as... More

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
