Hubby and I went to the Dancing Greek last week. I was craving saganaki (flaming cheese) so searched Greek restaurants in London to see what might be new. I loved that it is located in a plaza with lots of parking. It is beside the Huron House and has its own sign, but is in the back of house when you walk in. You have to walk past the bar area and a rather ugly front room to get to the hostess area. Once there the restaurant itself is nice enough with candles on the table but if I remember correctly they had a paper placemat type thing like Jack Astors that seemed out of place.
We ordered saganaki which was very good and served with the traditional flare and flame. The bread served at the table was thick and focaccia like and more was provided as the first serving went fast. I had the marinated chicken skewer, rice, potatoes and vegetables which was very good. Hubby had the Mediterranean pasta and we shared a dessert which was pastry and cream filling (I forget what it was called) that was a good portion perfect for sharing. We also enjoyed a half carafe of the house red wine which was very good and served with large red wine glasses which I prefer.
The service was excellent. The server was friendly, very accomodating and professional while another staff person ensured our water glasses were filled etc. The atmosphere was casual but nice and the price was reasonable. With appetizer, wine, entrees, dessert and tip we were in and out for $75.
I'd recommend it if you are looking for something casual and unassuming.
