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

We get takeout here all the time, and the food is great. We came here with a Groupon (not sure if that had anything to do with this) and the waitress never smiled once. She forgot to bring some items to the table, and didn't clear between courses, so our table looked like a bomb hit it. And I noticed... More

This was our first visit to the Athenian Greek taverna rest. The rest. is a little hard to find being in the corner of a strip mall right off route 25 in Commack. The rest. has a nice homey feel to it and you are grated with a smile. The waitress was very helpful in explaining the different dishes. Overall... More

The food was really good and the portions were huge. We were 3 and able to share a groupon for 2. Unfortunately, the service was so so. Waitress was very pleasant but forgetful. Kept asking for servinig spoons n ended up having to take from other tables. Dirty dishes weren't removed from our table as each course was brought. When... More
