“Just Okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

Great selection but typical of a buffet style restaurant. Most of the food has been sitting in steam trays for a while so I would not call it fresh. Service was good but not outstanding and the building is starting to show it's age.

“Terrible Service! Terrible!Service!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

I was there on sunday, it costs a litle more around $14 usd. I was not really impresed with the food but must say it was ok. The ambience is good and gives the greek feeling. THE SERVICE WAS TERRIBLE! our waiter was the cashier, so we got screwed on service. I ask for iced tea and that is all i drink because only when we arrive i saw the waiter, ho sorry also to bring the check. There was only the cashier and one other waitress for the amount of people in the place was a little cheap on management to save on another waitress and sacrifice service. Not shure if i will go back because i really prefer to be treated right than to be ignored as we were in this place.

“Good Greek Buffet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

I've been here a few times for lunch and a couple of times for dinner. The buffet is done very well and has a large variety of Greek foods and desserts. The lamb is outstanding in all it's forms. And the large variety of desserts are delicious.

The evening was delightful with shots of Ouzo and the waiters get together and do Greek dancing.

Overall, Zorba's is worth the trip.

“Great Selection of Greek foods”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

This is a great location for lunch. They have a variety of hot & fresh Greek food items to choose from. They have chicken, lamb, beef, an fish dishes. The hummus/salad bar is great. Pita bread is always kept fresh/hot. The buffet is a great deal. There's also a dessert bar with fruits/cakes/puddings and cookies. The staff is very attentive and friendly. The atmosphere gets a bit loud when the restaurant is full. In the evenings, your treated to an awesome dancing show. Overall, this restaurant has great food and service.

“Nice place but not worth the price”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012 via mobile

Saw this place thought we would try it, my family of four ( me, bf, my 9yr old, and my 2 yr old). The food was average nothing stuck out pretty plain. Especially for over 12$ a plate, 10$ for my 9yr old, and 5$ for my 2yr old who doesn't eat off his own plate in the first place, the waitresses are rude and very short with customers. For greek food the only thing that had flavor was the mash potatoes that were so garlicky you could only stand about 2 bites before it started to burn. To sum this paying over 55 dollars for a tasteless buffet is not worth it ,
