Had both take out and in restaurant several times and always great. The octopus is fantastic and the lamb is tender and lean. Dips are fresh and plentiful.

I was there at 7 on Friday night. This place can get loud.. maybe because there isn't any soft furniture. The seats are comfortable but remind me of some kinda glass that you would see in an episode of Sex and the city. The service was great. Our waiter was a real professional, not some bozo local kid that doesn't... More

I have been eating at Greek City for years. Lunch or dinner it is always on spot. Only, I have such a struggle with which wonderful item to have. If you like fish , you must try the filet of Red Snapper, Bronzini, mixed seafood w/ pasta. The special lamb shank is tender and full of flavor. The grilled meats,... More

When I heard how good this place was, I was dubious, given its location in a strip mall. But it is so very delicious. Don't let the name and location fool you.

We had lamb kabob and a Greek salad. Both were delicious as were the bread and olives, and complementary cookie at the end of the meal. Our only complaint would be that we were seated next to a table for six that was very noisy. The restaurant was not full so we could have been seated in a quieter area.... More

Don't be fooled by the location (located near a pizza and Burger place in a strip mall like shopping area). The food is authentic Greek cuisine served by with knowledgeable servers and a nice interior. If you want quality Greek food this is the place to go.

the restaurant was recommended by a colleague. I was fooled by the outdoor appearance but once inside it was a pleasant surprise. The service was excellent and the variety of greek food is wonderful I usually have the greek salad as it is so good

Do not be fooled by the exterior or the location. The inside of the restaurant is beautiful and the food is delicious. I've been here for lunch twice and I am sure dinner must be even better. I recommend the fried calimari and the feta with olives for appetizers. They have a wide variety of gyros, salads and skewers for... More

We stopped in to Greek City for a late lunch the other day. I was pleasantly surprised by the interior. It is much nicer than it looks from the outside and has a nice atmosphere. We started with grilled octopus but it was very chewy and without much flavor. The wedges of feta were very good.The souvlaki platters were OK... More

My husband and I love this place. Shrimp with orzo, any fish dish, and the lemon potatoes, yum! We go here at least three times a year.
