We had Sunday lunch at the Parthenon today and were completely happy with our meal. We started out with Mimosas, which were huge and delicious! I ordered a thin crust Chios Pizza and added the Greek sausage, with a side Greek salad. My friend had the Spanakopita with baked acorn squash. We split a dish of Baklava ice cream for... More

Our family of 14 members enjoyed a great Greek meal at the Parthenon. They have a separate party room to cater to big groups like ours. The food was great. We all enjoyed the Flaming Cheese appetizer. We had a variety of different dishes from Grape Leaves to special dishes for children. Service was good and ambiance was as well.

Stopped here with some colleagues and not only was the food and atmosphere great, but is was quiet enough at lunch time to have a good conversation. The special for that day was also great!

We ordered the Calamari, Mousaka and Pastitsio. There was so much food that we could not eat all of it. The food was good, the atmosphere was nice and the waitress was good. The desserts we ordered were to go and they were bland. We have been ruined by the older ladies at the Greek church!

Visited a week ago with my sister for lunch on our way through 1.) They carry Hinas, a very wonderful Greek Beer 2.) Tztaki sauce + RRPH are wonderful. Good portion sizes on the Pita Bread 3.) Veggies were great, Gyro was exactly what i expected. 4.) Desserts were to die for (NAPOLEON!) Overall, great experience. Would recommend to friends.

A first class culinary experience. Their menu's depth leaves every other Greek Restaurant behind we've ever dined at. Flavorful Greek Salads, dozens of dessert offerings, robust specialty drink listings, impeccable service, and the willingness of management, kitchen and wait staff to adapt their offerings are remarkable. We brought along my wife's 88 year old uncle who had rarely tried Greek... More

The server's apron was so crusty and gross I really didn't want her touching my plate. If I go there again and her apron is filthy I won't go back in to eat. The food was good, with interesting flavors. We ate a whole range of items from the lunch and side menus. But, I ordered a glass of wine... More

I enjoy trying unique ethnic places. The menu offered good Greek choices. I tried the Dolemathes Platter. The meat mixture was wrapped in actual grape leaves giving it a enjoyable flavor. My friend raved about the Santorini pizza. The decor is getting a bit weary, but I'll definitely be back.
