We only learned about Athenian because of a Groupon but were very pleased that we went. The portions are large and the food is authentic Greek. I had the grilled Octopus which was tender and tasty. The lamb kebob was not as good. A bit tough and gamey. The Tzatziki was incredibly great and they sell it to go in... More

This place has the best Greek salad ever!!! We have tried every other Greek restaurant in the area and this is the only place that makes a really delicious Greek salad. We get ours topped with chunks of grilled chicken. So good. Do yourself a favor and get yourself a real Greek meal from here.

The appetizers were overpriced and prepared ahead of time. The meat was tough and very chewy. The potatoes seemed had been refrigerated and reheated.

Been here on a date with my boyfriend and then returned with my name sons for a family dinner. Everything was great. Delicious gyros, Greek salad, mixed meat platter, rice, soup and more. It was a little more expensive than other Greek restaurants I have eaten at, but the portions were large and everything tasted delicious.

Lemon soup was awful, chicken was very, very dry. Service was terrible. Would definitely not eat there again. Souvlaki Palace is much better.

Solid Greek food in an otherwise non-descript shopping center on the north side of Jericho Turnpike (adjacent to the bowling alley). I went with my father, using a recently-purchased Groupon, and we both very much enjoyed the experience and would return. We ordered the Saganaki appetizer (a somewhat oily cheese served on fire in a small pan with tomatoes) -... More
