This restaurant is a go to destination for Greek food in a hurry. The food is fresh - they have great turnover. The tuna dish can be dicey but all other dishes including the grilled salmon are good. Lots of options, reasonable prices, casual diner style dining.

Is it Greek-like? Sure. Is it like eating in Santorini? No, more like a gyro cart in NYC with prime sidewalk seating. No ambiance, no liquor, no novel dishes...it's an all Greek food diner. Every time I've visited the waiter has been a sad old man, never a female, not even once! The place isn't cheerful, no music and it's... More

Every time we've eaten here the food is OK, but not special. The tables are tight...too tight. Feel like you're eating with surrounding guests. Prefer the one in Fort Lee

The four of us left the office to experience some Greek food and were not disappointed. The cold appetizer platter is huge and enough for four as an appetizer. Lunch specials, including lamb, chicken and seafood, were terrific. Service is good and the restaurant is very cheerful. The BYO policy saves money, so that's another plus. Will definitely return.

Came with some friends for lunch but was not impressed. Typical fast food Greek style. Just your middle of the road food. I ordered Greek salad but it was not crisp fresh and the feta cheese tasted old. Their chicken souvlaki was dry. Service was a little slow even though they knew we had limited time.

Pretty close to the real thing, good quality, a little noisy, a bit casual but yet tasty food with plenty of options in the menu

Love the greek salads at Greek To Me. The small size is huge and very filling. Great tasting pita, olives and bean salad. The grilled chicken over spinach is an excellent choice.

Whenever I go to a greek restaurant the first thing I look for is grilled octopus. Their dish was very good and inexpensive.

Very good, authentic menu. Excellent service. We had gyros, Greek salads, spanakopitas (spinach pies), stuffed grape leaves, and lamb burgers. A reasonable wait for freshly prepared and cooked food. I had really been missing Greek food in my new hometown and this was a great lunch with friends!
