Went there because in my opinion they have the best food in Greek town, the portions are nice size and the staff is quick, but take care of their customers. The flamed cheese taste good and great presentation table side . The wine is reasonable and a good range to choose from. Nice place for a summer night out.

Great Greek food. The flaming cheese is tasty and a great table side presentation. The lamb is tender and all the food is adequately seasoned and delicious. The Selection of Greek wines is better than most restaurants I've been at, the Reds and Roses are nice. I suggest getting the carafe. They served it in a tin cup and it's... More

We usually take out of town friends here when we want to visit Greektown (as we did last night). Very good food, well presented. And the service is friendly. Hard to go wrong here,

Their family dinners provided a lot of food. Plan to take some home. There appetizer of flamed cheese "Saganaki" is a must!!! The roasted pork was better than the lamb.

Ate at Parthenon tonight and although the food was a bit too salty for my palate , it tasted terrific. Very friendly atmosphere, great prices, good food. The roe appetizer was great as well as the garlic mashed potatoes. Terrific desserts, had to stuff them in.

Have been going to this restaurant for over thirty years. Lately the food has not been as good as in the past. My son read that they have failed two inspections for cleanliness. The pastitsio is terrible. The only dish I really like is the gyros.

We have been coming to the Parthenon since 1973. The saganaki, gyros, dolamades, roditas haven't changed. One of our very favorite restaurants of all times. We caught the 7:20am from Alton IL and came for lunch. Catching the 5:15pm train back home. Fun day!!
