“FABULOUS”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

While traveling to Kingston on business, I took a party of 8 people to Greco's on Princess St. Starting with the professional waiter who pointed-out all the specials for the evening and some of the best wines both red & white, we left completely satisfied and my guest were enthusiastic how an out-of-towner could find such a great restaurant in their city. Thank you Jimmy the owner for making our evening so special.. We'll see you our next time in Kingston. Jack Julian Oakville, ON.

“Great service, but the food was only okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

We were overwhelmed by the service, but after reading the other reviews of this popular restaurant we were a bit disappointed by the food.
The staff here were attentive and efficient. Our waiter was personable and always available to us, no matter what else he was doing.
The wine list was fine, but the selection of wines by the glass was limited.
We were underwhelmed by the food: our caesar salad was soggy; my rack of lamb was dry and overcooked; my partner's filet of sole was breaded and fried, not sautéed as the menu claimed.
We were disappointed by our experience at Grecos, but we're prepared to try it again when we return to Kingston.

“Wow”

Best Greek food in town, don't search any further. The portions are enormous, definitely leftovers the next day...and still delicious.

“Their excellence has made them arrogant”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

For all the obvious reasons, Greco's has been one of my favourite restaurants for years and a common place to go for celebrations. My son came from out of town this past weekend to celebrate my birthday. Knowing how popular the place would be on a Saturday night we booked reservations for 5 people well in advance, and even changed the time we wanted at the restaurant's request. When we arrived our party of 5 was crammed into a table for 4 with one of us seated at the end of the table sticking out in the only passage the serving staff had to walk - and not surprisingly, the staff kept bumping her in the back of the head and one nearly clocked her in the face with a pot of hot coffee. Our request for more appropriate seating was answered with rudeness and indifference. There were at least two tables for four with only two diners sitting at them and when we asked to be located to a larger table that had just come available they instead brought a table from the kitchen and tried to jam it beside the already too small table. The size of the table wasn't as much of a problem as sitting in the middle of the wait staff traffic was. We left and went somewhere with a much nicer atmosphere, great service, and where our patronage was demonstrably appreciated. Greco's has great food for sure but being popular seems to have made them feel that they can treat clients poorly. This really put a damper on a special occasion. Why on earth didn't they just decline the reservation?
