“Too much food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

We wanted to eat at a good Greek restaurant in Greektown and our taxi driver recommended this restaurant. We weren't disappointed. The service was great despite it being extremely busy and the food delicious. As there were three of us, we ordered the family dinner. There was so much food that we ended up taking the left-overs back to our hotel. I'd definitely go there again.

“Great Greek Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

Went with my wife and 2 kids after a long day visiting downtown Chicago. It is the top-rated Greek restaurant in Chicago for a reason. Very extensive menu, good prices, and the food didn't disappoint. Wife and I did the family style dinner for 2 because we wanted to sample some different items. It was more food than we could handle and well worth it. Kids enjoyed their spaghetti. Will go back next time we are in Chicago!!

“Perfect meal, perfect service, perfect night in the big city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

We stumbled upon this restaurant by accident while heading in for a concert and what a delight! The food was fantastic - beet salad, olives, unbelievably good pork (special) and a fine bottle of wine, recommended by our waiter. We sat outside on a perfect Fri night in the big city - and from start to finish the meal was absolutely lovely. Our waiter, Jose, was attentive and helpful without being intrusive. His suggestions were A+, and afterwards, his creativity in creating a makeshift "ice chest" so that we could take our leftovers along was above and beyond. To top it off, the prices are not out of this world, especially for Chicago. Definitely a great experience and I would go back (and hope to!) anytime. One regret - we were too full to try any of the desserts!
