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!!

This was the most horrible greek "food" I have ever experienced. After this experience, I discovered that the place just reopened after having been closed for health department violations. It was disgusting. Be warned!

Have eaten here many times over the years. Typical Greek dishes, all very good- the lamb chops are especially excellent, tasty and tender. Portions are all good size. Apps are typically good for sharing. Have thouroughly enjoyed... More

Terrible service, unwelcoming server. Food is overpriced. Managers and servers all are impolite. The place failed the safety and hygiene test just few months ago

Only drawback was the egg lemon soup was a little salty, but the rest of the meal was great. Portion size was huge, so... More
