Description: We are located in the historic 'moses building' just across from the downtown courthouse in Ocala Fl. Our location has a lot to offer in the form of character from the large brick and marble white colors that adorn the walls, to the rich wood that frames the inside of the building and the large staircase that reminds visitors of their favorite scene from, 'Gone With The Wind'. Seating is available outside, inside, near a bar, or upstairs, and all of which offers a unique view of either downtown, or the interior of the building. Truly this building carries a lot of character and (we hope) only adds to the ambiance while enjoying your meal.

“Average But Pricey”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

We take the several hour drive to Tarpon Springs once in a while for Greek food so we were excited about Feta in Ocala. It was "ok" but not stellar. I had a sampler plate. A friend of ours makes this kind of food from scratch and that is of course the gold standard. It doesn't look or taste as if this is home made...more like freezer section grocery store variety? The Greek salad was good although I am partial to the Tarpon Springs version with potato salad in it! We sat upstairs and the atmosphere is a bit white and pale. Needs a few more pictures...and do we really need a fire extinguisher in front of our table?! For Ocala Feta is a bit pricey. $18 for the sampler platter. The didn't have any soda pop in stock (huh?) so we opted for a $3 glass of green tea. $3? Really? We will probably go again as Ocala doesn't have much of this kind of fare at all, but my overall rating is still just "average." Either that or just wait for the Greek Fest.

“Feta's in Ocala, FL”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Mmmmm ... "Excellent" ... it is a new restaurant and they are still "making it pretty". A beautiful mural downstairs when you arrive is being painted by an award-winning artist. We sat downstairs because we can't maneuver stairs ... but the server was very attentive and the chef explained different dishes and ingredients. And I can't say enough about the food. This small restaurant should be rated a FIVE STAR restaurant. Try it! You'll not only "like" it ... you'll LOVE it!!

“Feta Mediterranean Cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

We have now eaten at Feta twice, and both experiences were quite good!

The good:
The food is excellent. My wife and I are Greek food snobs (having dined at an outstanding Greek restaurant in Phoenix). The food at feta is very authentic, cooked and seasoned well. Try the Bouyourdi. Last visit the chef told us that this was his Granmothers recipe...

The bad:
This is a very new restaurant, and they are still working out the kinks. Some of the wait staf are excellent, some not so much. Recently, they rearranged the dining room, and I believe it is an improvement. There is a mural going on the wall, and if you look close there is a hdden treat.

“Disappointing experience”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

Our worst culinary experience since moving to Ocala. Waiter got the order wrong and the main courses were not served at the same time. Two members of our party had to wait to receive their food for at least 5 minutes after others were served. We are from NYC and expected the service and quality of food to be better. The only positive statement that we can make is about the quality of the feta cheese. They need more fish on the menu.

“Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Very nice place. Food was well prepared and delicious. Service was great.
We've been for dinner and want to go back for lunch (different menu offerings).
A definite "go to" place when in town running errands.
