“Good Greek Food and Friendly Service in Park Slope”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

This is a really relaxing bistro with good Greek food and very friendly, excellent service. Our server Avram was particularly helpful, and the food came hot and promptly, with adeqaute time bewteen courses to digest. Never rushed. Avram's suggestions we also very hepful.

We came in ealry, at 6:30, on a Saturday night, but within a half hour, the place was full. This a popular place -- for good reason!

All the lamb dishes were nice, and so was the spanokita. A personal favorite of mine was the PEI mussels in garlic. Also the egglant appetizer.

The wine list was a bit pricey. I found a red from the island of Paros for $36 which worked. I think the house red might have been ok too. Avram was more than happy to let you sample different wines that were open. No pressure to upgdade or order more bottles. That's really nice!

I know there must have been a Greek in the kitchen because it was authentic Greek food in my opiinion, But I didn't meet any Greeks in the front of the house. That did not take away from the experience for me. Plus they all knew the menu insider and out. Thanks again Avram.

We are from Philly, but my daugher lives in Brooklyn. I would come back here on a future trip.

Excellent food and very good service after moving our daughter to Brooklyn. Will return in the near future. Used the opportunity to celebrate our anniversary at a Greek restaurant.

“Greece Comes to Brooklyn's Park Slope”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

Most diners seeking good Greek food think immediately of Astoria, Queens, but they can now also get to bustling 7th avenue in Brooklyn for very nice Greek cuisine at Faros. This small, attractive spot with a full bar and lovely rear garden, offers a full menu of Greek specialties. A nice tomato salad easily served two. Seafood is prepared simply--grilled with olive oil and lemon. The service is professional and pleasant, and the tab won't set you back. They are also very good with young children. Faros is definitely worth a visit.

“Great restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Very attentive service, good food, nice atmosphere. The Pikilia, a platter of 4 spreads, was delicious. The Spitikos Mousakas, a clay pot baked dish was also a good one if you're in the mood for comfort food.

“Nice Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Food is very good, as is the service (though they did have one off night).
I'll be back, as the food is good and they are very friendly!
