Really was not attractive from the outside. The greeter was kind I was there for a conference. The place was not filled on a Thursday but the waitress Mercedes was on her game. I ordered the Salmon and shrimp salad. I decided to get that on the side. It was served on Nappa cabbage and was delicious with just lemon.... More

Heard about this place from a friend whose parents live in Tempe. Had lunch on 12/26, so was quiet and good service. Food was just okay. Pita Gyro, a little dry. The Aegean Club is HUGE. Real chicken breast, a bit thick and dry. Fettuccini alfredo was also just run of the mill. Flaming cheese was great. But with just... More

Something seems to have changed at this place. The place was usually packed, and the food good. We went there for dinner and the place was empty. The flaming saganaki was really bad: there was almost nothing on the plate, and what was there could not be scraped off the plate. The mousaka was also bad -- it was undercooked... More

I was looking for a quick lunch during a day of conferences and found this restaurant amongst a street of many. The service was friendly. I have tacos which were amazing - shame I had a 'coffee' as I didn't realise it was going to be as strong as it was - my fault at not knowing what a 'greek'... More

Everything we ordered was cooked to our liking. No complaints about the food. After we ordered and received our waters we didn't see the server again until the food came. The water tasted awful. Terrible tap water. It could've taken less time for a basic lunch but I wouldn't go back because of the service or lack there of.
