“Highs and Lows”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

The server is the best thing about this restaurant. Next, the baklava.

I had mixed feelings about our meal. The octopus was a hit, it was lightly breaded, and the crab cakes were phenomenal. But the sorrowful moment of the meal was because they threw amazing appetizers at us, leading us to great expectations, yet it was an inconsistent story throughout: the soups were a downer, the pita bread pumped us back up, the spanakopita threw us back down, and then the entrees were fairly good, but not exquisite. The final baklava blew us away, so in the end, it was worth the highs and lows.

I can't say this was a memorable meal, but I appreciate it was clean food, and we were treated like royalty by the blonde waitress. Maybe I'm not a Greek fan....but this restaurant is still a winner. And it's easy on the pocketbook too.

“Wonderful food and service to match!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

Christo's is easily one of our favorite restaurants and we have been dining here for well over a decade now. The Greek food is terrific, and the lamb chops have always been prepared perfectly. They also have some of the best soups anywhere in town!

Excellent service, delicious food, including vegetarian mousaka. For dessert, try the Galatopoureko.

“Classic and well prepared Greek food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

The menu was varied and the dishes all well prepared. The moussaka was meaty and tasty and the salads were excellent. Staff was extremely helpful and friendly. The value was good and the restaurant is centrally located on Nicollet Ave, otherwise known as Eat Street for its many many choices. We eat Mediterranean food often at home and found this to be at a high level.
