My husband and I really enjoyed our dinner at the Athenian Garden. Warm pita bread was served with herb infused oil. I had kleftiko; tender lamb with a basalmic reduction, cheese and greens was delicious. The moussaka was the best I have ever tasted. No rooom for dessert. The open kitchen... read more

After reading all the other reviews, we dined here on a Thursday night.. The food was fresh and flavorful but, way overpriced. I had 6 shrimp on a skewer with a teeny tiny skewer of veggies over a small portion of rice - $25.00; everyone enjoyed their meals but, felt the price tag should be lower . It is a... More

The open kitchen says good things about a restaurant. We'll be back.

The food was okay, but not what Yelp made it out to be. I will likely not go back. It was not worth the extra drive. BYOB if you're thirsty.

The staff was so nice seemed like a family business. Its byob. My wife has celiac so many options for her which isn't usually the case. I got the bass entrée she got a shrimp entree. Both were so good and fresh that we swapped dinners. We will be back. Such a great healthy choice!

After reading that this restaurant is family-owned and run, and that it is a BYOB, we decided to meet some friends for dinner, who had never eaten Greek food. As an introduction to Greek cuisine, we ordered the trio meze of skordalia, grilled eggplant and roasted peppers--classic enough not to offend. We also ordered the grilled octopus-- because we love... More

Was in the area for a retreat over President's Day weekend, and had been looking forward to a meal at Athenian Garden since the last trip. Friendly service, and great food. Will definitely go back if I'm in the area.

My husband and I had a romantic lunch the week between Christmas and New Years. BYOB made our meal even more reasonable. The waiter was so friendly and brought us two wine glasses and opened our bottle right after seating us. He made a few suggestions from the menu and the food was ready in no time. Everything we had... More

Awesome food and the place is run by a family. Mom and dad cook and the 2 sons wait tables. The Moussaka was out if this world and the chicken gyro was also great. The waiter was friendly and happily explained menu items to us. Can't wait to go back.

We were visiting from Ontario and happened upon this local Greek Restaurant. Best tasting food ever. Greek salad was awesome, every dish was full of flavour and the Baklava was to die for.
