Great service. Panos has come a long way from when I was at Buff State. It was a little building(still there, its a pizza place now). Enjoying the chicjen slovaki salad ( still as good as when I was in college). Kids enjoyed their burger and chicken fingers.

Service was a little slow. The Spanakopita was delicious but the Greek potatoes were a little strong. Prices were fair and the atmosphere nice.

I have been visiting Panos for 20+ years. The food is consistently good, the atmosphere is lively, and the prices are fair. I LOVE their chicken souvlaki with the dill dipping sauce.o to Panos- you won't be sorry!

I really love the location of this restaurant in the Elmwood Village and the outdoor patio. The service has been friendly and fairly efficient. The only problem is the quality of food. I feel like the food is not always fresh and usually leave not feeling great. I don't think I will come back unless it's for dessert because I... More

I have eaten at Pano's for years and watched it expand from a small restaurant to its current size. The food is dependably good and the prices are utterly fair. The convenient parking lot is a great asset; must get there early to get a spot. My favorite breakfast is their granola with fruit and great Greek yogurt. Portions are... More

We stopped here for lunch on a Saturday afternoon and were told there would be a 30 min. wait. That was fine and we were content to wait out front in the sun watching people go up and down the street. To our surprise, we were called after 10 min. and taken to a table upstairs. The restaurant is larger... More

A sure thing breakfast, lunch or dinner...Always busy, parking tight, and now reservations. The food and extensive menu will make everyone at the table happy. There is of course a Greek flair to the meals, but not overpowering. Rack of lamb, and seared scollops we hits last evening.

With two stories of dining areas, brunch, lunch and dinner have never disappointed and we've eaten there often. Only complaints are limited parking during lunch hour and height of dinner time, and they don't have a full bar. But at least I can get a mimosa! Great omelettes and salads. Even if the parking lot is full, we've never had... More

Don't let the title of my review give you the wrong impression. I was addicted to Pano's (pre-expansion). I loved their breakfasts and their delicately breaded tempura shrimp. Sadly, the tempura shrimp is only a lingering memory because it is no longer on the menu. But, I digress.The expansion did little to improve the crowdedness of this restaurant. Despite the... More
