Clean place and fairly comfortable seating. But the the food portions were a bit small for adults. Taste of food average to above average at best. Friendly staff tries to get you to order more items so that you spend more $$$$$. Not really worth it.

Last night my husband and I were in the mood for Greek food, so we headed to Athena in Park Slope. We have been there several times over the years, but it had been a while since our last visit. It’s a small restaurant on a quiet stretch of Sixth Avenue and the corner of 14th Street. Athena is family... More

There were beans on plate with a few sprigs of lettuce but i didn't order beans, i ordered octopus. He also stated other places charge... More

We were only in Brooklyn for a week, but ate dinner here twice - this has to be the friendliest, most gracious Greek restaurant in New York City. The owners treat everyone like long lost friends and serve imaginative, interesting food. The roast lamb was fork tender and nicely pink. Grilled whole red snapper was perfect. Appetizers like stuffed mushrooms... More

We were staying in Brooklyn for a few days and saw this restaurant on trip advisor. We're all pretty big fans of Mediterranean food so we decided to give it a try on a Monday night. We got there and we were literally the only customers. It's a small room and there were no employees to be found. This kind... More

With my husband and eldest son we ventured over to Athena the Sunday before Halloween. Although there was a big party being held, we were not neglected. The staff acknowledged us as we arrived and apologized and we were seated a few minutes after our reservation time. The atmosphere was good, the wait staff pleasant and we each enjoyed our... More

It was a rainy day and we were famished in Park Slope looking for a place to park so we could find a place to eat. We happened upon Athena by chance and we plan to go back there again and again. Although we were the only ones dining, the food, service and ambience were memorably delightful. The service was... More
