With so many restaurants not making things in house this place is a breath of fresh air. The food is excellent, the service is always good. Get over the disposable plates and plastic silverware it is just one of the quirky things that makes this place a hidden gem. Note the very reasonable prices also do not make the chef... More

There are two dishes that I love to get at Divine Foods: Spanakopita or Moussaka. Both are very delicious and fulfill my need for Greek! My husband loves the Beef Tenderloin Kabobs, so that is another good choice. Like many other posts...The plastic silverware and salad leave something to be desired. But the service is always friendly and the food... More

Pretty authentic and tasty Greek right in the middle of Columbia. Only disappointment was the plastic cutlery and 3 compartment styrofoam plates and plastic drink glasses. Made the place feel like a works cafeteria instead of a restaurant. Spoilt the " nice dinner on a Saturday night feel that most people are looking for when they go out on the... More

I had the Gyros (very good) with Greek salad and added Greek potatoes (over the top delicious!). My only complaint was the strangely anemic "Greek" salad. It consisted of iceberg lettuce only, 2 cucumber slices, a few pieces of julienned carrots, feta cheese and house dressing (nothing to rave about). It did not contain kalamata olives, onions, pepperoncini or tomatoes.... More

This is a small ma and pa restaurant that is not the easiest to find. Parking is available across the street, but nobody seems to notice because of the hedges. The servers are very friendly and the food is good. The cheesecake dessert is amazing, whichever one you choose.

I had the Pork Souvlaki Dinner which included a Greek Salad. The salad lacked Kalamata olives and Pepperoncini peppers. The Souvlaki lacked enough tazazeki. Overall good but not DEVINE. Slightly better than average. I was hoping for more. The Baklava needed more honey poured over it and warmed up then it would have been a GREAT desert.

The best Greek food in Columbia, SC. The owners are super friendly and the food is to die for! Casual eating place. You cannot go wrong with any item on the menu or the specials. They have the best cookies! The best little gem in Columbia.

Very passable Greek food tucked away on Devine St. It's easy to miss, I passed it the first time. Pros....good menu, nice servers, great deserts Cons...chef is so crazy grumpy...he is always barking at the staff. Parking is horrible. The beer and wine list is very very limited.

I ordered the Spanakopita. The portion was okay, but i/m/o, had too many onions. The side salad that came with it was just decent. Nothing spectacular. However, I would eat there again, and try something different.
