My husband and I have been coming to Greek Islands for over 15 years. We even had our wedding rehearsal dinner there in 2005 (very close to Old St. Pat's). We love the festive atmosphere and we love their food. It's a great escape on the rare occasions that I take an extended lunch with my husband. It's also convenient... More

We found this great Greek place on Tripadvisor & it was a lucky find. We had flambeed cheese as an appetizer & it was tasty. For entrees, I had a pork combo & wife had Spartan chicken we both enjoyed our choices. The portions were generous so we both had leftovers to bring home. Server Estaban & busboy Leonidas (I...

No visit is complete for me without at rip to this restaurant. Awesome authentic Greek food with many types of food choices. From the popular gyros, mousaka, pastitsio to fresh fish soups and salads. Very good wine selection and very attentive service. You must try the soups. I have been here many times and the food has always been great.... More

Brought friends and colleagues here for dinner and the food was delicious, & the service was above excellent! Would highly recommend this restaurant. Check it out! Greektown felt like the suburbs of Athens! Love it and will be back.

This is one of our favorites and tonight we fell in, after having been in the burbs for a birthday party. We went to the bar with our ringer for about 15 minutes and were successfully seated outside. The tormosalata was fresh and delectable. A house salad was split and my wife enjoyed the grilled octopus appetizer while I savored... More

It was good but not impressive for the price. The food was average. I wouldn't go back. For the amount of money you could find a better street Greek vendor. The atmosphere is a bit sterile inside of the restaurant.

Came here with a friend, shared the flaming cheese and the sampler for appetizers, I had the spanikopita and gyros mix plate and it was very good. House white wine was tasty too. Good coffee and baklava for dessert. It was a good night.

Met a friend that works in West Loop. Free valet parking is great. Food was great. Had grilled octopus appetizer and Moussaka for lunch. My friend had a combo plate that included stuffed grape leaves.

Happened by this place (was staying near by) and popped in for a meal. I had med chicken; lovely meal although it was a little greasy but I didn't mind. Rice was some kind of rice cooked with oil, but again I didn't mind so much. Everyone had decent meals and was full; we had to take away left overs.... More

This is my favorite restaurant so far in Chicago. It is consistently excellent every time we have been here, and today was no exception. Starting with the fresh crusty bread, and the soup of the day,( a fresh fish chowder called Psarosoupa), which was outstanding, all that was missing was the view of the Mediterranean. We followed this with a... More
