Nice Time

Took the wife out to Pano's last night for her birthday. We got there early,around 5:30 ,as it is a popular place and found lots of parking available. I opted for the Monsoon Salad which was very good. A little pricey at $18 but loaded with fresh greens, lots of fruits,coconut crusted chicken... read more

We love nyc diners where breakfast is served all day and you can order almost any type of food you want with many Greek restaurant favorites. That is what you get at Pano's. Good food, reasonably priced, always busy, good service, spacious with 2 floors. Only downside is that it has a very small parking lot and street parking is... More

This well known and popular restaurant is clean and attractively decorated, the food however, is average. A recent visit, the chicken souvlaki was ok, the chicken, not very flavorful and chewy, lettuce, etc can't really be messed with. Would I go back? No. We were with 2 other couples and the suggestion was theirs

Our first time there and we were not disappointed. Parking is at a premium, but we only parked half a block away. Food was excellent. Crab cakes were done nicely, not fishy tasting. Loved the salads, very fresh. We both had the scallop / fettuccine special and we loved it. Way to full for dessert. Waitress, Sydney, was pleasant and... More

We've eaten at Panos many time and have never been disappointed. Breakfast, lunch, diner or later night meal you will always fine something wonderful.

Have wanted to try this place for a long time as it always seems very busy. Waitress was awful, food mediocre, had to fill our own water, weren't made aware of brunch menu. Too many great choices in this area to warrant a second try.

This place reminding me of a typical Greek New York City diner but with a special Buffalo flair. To start the wait staff greeted us with a big smile and ready to help. The food was really good and the beer better! They had a pretty big selection of draft beers and the humus was delicious .

Long before Pano' s expanded, my friends and family frequent there for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The chefs are great! The make the food and make it well, yum :) We had a small issue with an order and it was fixed with no hassle. Which just encourages us to continue to dine there. I wish that they had more... More

Great place to go for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Best bang for your buck and food is always good. Good patio for dining in summer as right on active Elmwood strip that is great for people watching. Always has a crowd and does not take reservations so enjoy a cocktail at the bar while waiting.
