“Basic Neighborhood Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

This is not a very fancy restaurant. It is a round the corner basic place where is the decent food but patchy service. The first time we went there, the food and service were great. Second time, service dropped a bit. The first time was for lunch and the second dinner.

They don't have too many vegetarian choices but do have some pleasant ones. Their soups are particularly good but do ensure that the stock they use is vegetarian, if you are one. Their Mexican choices are quite tasty. The seating booths are quite cramped for four people.

“Nice neighborhood eatery in Hyde Park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

Nothing fancy, just good eats in a family Greek atmosphere. The reuben is good. The lemon chicken soup maybe too thickened. Locals with us love the service and the cozy feeling of the place. A fair value and an asset to the area.

“Excellent Breakfast - Great Service - Worth a Stop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

While our daughter was studying at UChicago we ate at Salonica many times. It's a wonderful place for breakfast; there were so many choices. It was easy to see that both locals and visitors frequented this restaurant - always a good sign. Service was friendly. The place was always packed. We always left feeling full and satisfied.

“Not worth a stop...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

We wanted to this Greek Diner to be awesome, but it was only ok. The food was not so good and the service was slow. Try something else when you are in Hyde Park.
