Very tasty!

We ate here a couple of times during this trip, and also on previous trips to the area. The food is excellent! My husband says it's exactly like the food when he traveled to Greece. The owners are very very nice. The prices seem slightly high, but that's true of most restaurants. Overall... read more

Had a wonderful meal as we always do at Athenian Garden. Love the fact that it is BYOB. When the osso bucco is on special, you must order. Falafel plate is plenty for sharing as an appetizer. Noise level a bit too loud making it hard to hear anyone at the far end of the table. Maybe putting sound panels... More

Food is always fresh and tasty. The establishment is clean and the service is good. It's a family owned establishment and you can feel that they take pride in it. The place needs a little updating but if you just want great food, just go here..

Although we dined relatively early the restaurant was quite busy and had quite a number of local diners which is normally a good sign. The owner's wife was very friendly and we enjoyed the food. I particularly liked the moussaka.

I had the Half Chicken Oreganato. It was flavorful and cooked just right. I really enjoyed it. My dinner companion had the lamb - Kleftiko and the Chicken Florinis which they also enjoyed. The staff was pleasant. Looking forward to a return trip.

had some mezze and gyro platter. Was very tasty. The desserts were even better. They are a warm family owned place. Enjoy!

They have good food for sure. Nothing extraordinary, but good, home-style Greek food. Service was excellent when we were there twice. I had gyro and some other things I can't remember nor know how to pronounce, but I like them all. If it weren't for a little expensive price tag, I would go back more often for its Greek food.

Not only was the wait for food unbearably long but the service was totally indifferent to our table. The server did not mention any specials( I guess you are supposed to read them on the way in)and was visibly uninterested.Our entrees finally came after a 40 min wait and the server quickly set them down and walked away leaving us...

Pleasant atmosphere, very fresh, expertly prepared Greek food. Garden behind restaurant supplies some of the produce and herbs. Generous portions. Reasonable price for quality of food. Some great vegeterian choices. Very good service from family run staff.

If you enjoy greek food come here if you're in the area. It's a short drive from AC, NJ The food is freshly prepared and the wait staff is great. A plus is it's BYOD so bring a good bottle of greek wine to compliment the meal.
