Have been here many times before, but brought a few friends this visit. We ended up getting tapas for the six of us and it was fabulous! We had a round table in the corner, and couldn't be more perfect. Wait staff was great and...extremely helpful in helping with the selection of dishes. We were never rushed. Good time had by all!More

This is a terrific Greek restaurant located a block from Route 1A in Ipswich. The setting is nice, while the food and service are both excellent.

My husband and I took another couple to dinner - none of us had been here before. Start to finish, it was quite terrific. We had great appetizers: lamb lollipops, grilled octopus, oysters and (my favorite) baked feta....reminded me so much of our wonderful meals...in Greece. Two of us had the branzino (a special, not always on the menu) and two of us had the lamb shank. I loved my lamb shank: perfectly cooked, and atop delicious orzo with feta. Excellent wine, excellent coffee and baklava, excellent service. My only slight disappointment: next time we will request the dining room instead of the bar area, where we were this time. A great-looking bar, but we would prefer the quieter dining-room ambience. We will know for next time! The food is outstanding.More

My girlfriend and I had a fantastic time at Ithaki. Our server Chris was fun, energetic and knowledgeable. He made great wine and dessert suggestions and made the entire dining experience fun. The food was excellent, well flavored and prepared just right. Like many places...they have had trouble finding adequate staff, I feel fortunate for the service we received.More

It is unexpected to see such authentic and very good eating place with warm-hearted atmosphere in small town. But then we realized we are lucky since our reservation at 4pm and there were no seats if we came later. This is a very popular restaurant....Highlights were sardines, lamb skewer, shrimp scampi and beet salad. Chris our server was outstanding and recommended excellent Greek wines. In addition he maintained very informative discussion.More

We went to Ithaki on the recommendation of friends and it was even better than they said. We shared several Meze menu items - Vegetarian Dolma, Roast Lamb Sandwich, Avgolemono soup and zucchini balls with beet tzatziki, all perfectly done. An excellent Greek wine list...as well as others. Dessert was the lightest lemoncello cake we had ever had. Service was wonderful. We cannot recommend this restaurant enough! We have travelled in Greece annually for 40 years and this was an excellent dining experience. Outdoor dining available.More

This is an exceptional Greek restaurant. The food and service are exceptional, and the setting-the outdoor tent-is quiet and pleasant. Two recommendations: The Cod Plaki is the best cod dish I have ever had. Save room for the pistachio baklava, which is simply a great...dessert.More

Recommended by staff at the Inn at Castle Hill in nearby Essex. Across a street from a commuter rail stop. Parking lot and street parking. We had a bit of a wait because though somewhat later than usual it was crowded with happy people. If...I lived in the town where John Updike made his home I'd be a regular. we had a table in one of the dining rooms, and a great server, older, efficient, and knew what she was doing. Personality plus. We both enjoyed talking to her. Food was out of this world. I ordered some items that I'd never had before, all delicious. Had to take some home, and it kept well. The Greek cookies for dessert were a big hit with our visiting daughter when we got home. I'd go again gladly. Not a diner, a first class restaurant.More

Ithaki is the best Greek restaurant in eastern Massachusetts. The food is terrific, the cocktails are good, service is friendly and the setting is very nice. We ate outdoors, and I highly recommend Ithaki outdoors.

This is a terrific restaurant offering a large and varied menu. All of the appetizers are great, and the portions are ample. Service is good. We ate in the tent outdoors, and it was a very pleasant environment.

What a wonderful meal.  We ordered a range of dishes, all were wonderful and well sized.  The Gigantes (elephant beans) dish was especially tasty and filling.  Lamb lollipops were also delicious.  Be sure to visit for a delightful meal.

I would hate to be a part of the waitstaff, telling people it's on the menu but we don't have it. I was beyond disappointed when the first 2 entrees were sold out at 6pm. They oppen at 4. Poor buying and even more poor...planning. I will not be coming back nor would I recommend it to anyone.More

Hospitality amd service was everything during our 1st time at Ithaki. Fine dining, attentive/genuine service from the hostess to our server. Dinner was great. Beet salad was perfectly balanced. Spanakopita was good but the filling was a bit too creamy. A bit more acidity would...have been welcome. The crusted scalops were simply delicious. The salmon was nicely cooked but under seasoned. Our server recommended a dry, white wine from Greece). The wine was crisp and smooth. Overall, an enjoyable experience. We will return.More

Can't wait to come back to this spot! Met up with some family after a memorial service for my late uncle and it was, in a lot of ways, like coming "home." We were met with open arms upon our arrival, and the atmosphere was...abundant in warmth and good vibes. Our service was exceptional - first class, really; the food itself was to die for! There was so much to choose from and everything was so flavorful. I have a pretty simple palate in general and this was my first experience with full-on Mediterranean Cuisine - if you have a first-timer that you are trying to open up to new things, this is definitely the place to take them!! It always shows when a place has a Chef and staff that are passionate about what they do, and these guys for sure take pride in their work. Will definitely be back!More
