Great Greek ... Enough said

Stopped here on the way home because of the outstanding reviews from others and was not disappointed. Saturday night at 7pm, which was crowded, but we got seated right away and the service and food was fantastic.

I had the pleasure of dining at the restaurant after my daughters wedding. The staff made us feel like we were the only people there. The service, the food, the people were truly amazing. I called ahead because we had a large party, everything was prepared upon our arrival, and things only got better and better. The appetizers came out... More

We go to Symeons, a Greek restaurant, several times a year. The food is always good. The menu is tried and true. I love the moussaka, and the fish wrapped in feta and phyllo dough. My favorite dessert is the baklava ice cream which comes on a cookie. The owner usually stops by to ask how our dinner is.

I like Greek food, I really do. But I don't like THIS Greek food. We have lunched twice at this restaurant and been profoundly disappointed two times. Why do locals like the restaurant so much? It's a mystery to me. The restaurant doesn't seem to have changed in years. The décor is tired and tawdry faux Mediterranean, with plastic all... More

If you're looking for some excellent Greek food, you can't go wrong here. The wife and I have been 2x now. We loved it both times.

If you're like me, you go to restaurants primarily for the experience. Food quality is always important, but I am fortunate to eat very well (quality, variety) at home. So, I always hope for a really great overall experience when I dine out. I look for the whole package, including: building quality, decor, accoutrements, staff professionalism, staff enthusiasm and commitment,... More

We have been going to Symeon's for years. We have never had a bad meal or poor service. It's a great place for family's, couples or friends. Our favorites are the Psari Sto Filo (fish baked in a pastry crust), the calamari (best ever), Thoracian chicken. Reasonable prices, lots of seating. Great for a date or a larger group. Ask... More

The New England Clam Chowder is some of the best in the area, and the Boston Baked Haddock is wonderful. Together it make a great meal. Get there early on Friday, some times the chowder is gone early.

The best Greek restaurant I've ever been to. The prices are reasonable, food it terrific and the owner normally stops by your table.

This is one of the restaurants on my mother's must do list. Great food to be found at Symeon's, however I have noticed that the waiting staff has been a little less than attentive to the needs of the patrons. This left us wondering what to do while we wait. There is always the crayon alternative and since there is... More
