This is our family go-to place. The food is simply amazing and more importantly, it's authentic! We have collectively had almost everything on the menu and have never been disappointed. From spot on skordalia to avgolemono to lamb to souvlaki, we always leave stuffed and happy. PS, the menu changes so its always a treat even for long time visitors.... More

This place has great food, at a good price. The staff is mostly Greek, and the food is traditional. Be sure to make a reservation.

We have eaten here many times and we have never had a bad meal nor terrible service. The greeting is always warm and welcoming (even when they are very busy). I've never had a dish I did not like. I'm married to a Greek and have had fabulous family meals in Greece. I feel I'm there whenever I visit Plaka!

This is my go-to Greek restaurant in Seattle. After living in Greece as a young adult, finding the perfect Greek place is of utmost importance. The food is fantastic. We usually order a bunch of the small plates and share amongst the group. The main dishes are also fantastic. The staff makes you feel right at home.

We always are on the lookout for Greek restaurants when we travel and based on other trip advisor reviews we tried Plaka on the weekend. The initial pita bread arrived burned on the face up side...picture about an 8/10 toast burn...why would you even serve this to a customer? The greek salad was good. The chicken souvlaki was a poor... More

Top-rate!! While on vacation in Seattle, we stumbled across this family owned restaurant which was fantastic! We asked for grape leaves which weren't on the menu & were served the most delicious ones we had ever tasted! My husband had the sea scallops with a spicy red sauce that had feta, peppers and onions. Never having had that before, he... More

This charming little restaurant has been in Ballard a long, long time and there's a reason it stays. Food is authentic Greek, owners are welcoming, feels like family. I brought my handicapped brother in and they were particularly friendly and made extra efforts to make him comfortable. Menu is large & everything I have tasted here has been outstanding.

Went here for dinner after a long day touring the city, close to the hotel. Came in because it looked inviting. Large party celebrating graduate of UW student, but they gave us a nice seat in the window near the open kitchen. Took a while for the waiter to stop by so the cook behind the counter engaged us in... More

Cozy, authentic, wonderful and friendly service, and they treat you like family, welcoming you to the table. I am looking forward to going back! We had no idea what to order, so we took the owner's great suggestions and were able to sample wine, salad, dinner, dessert and a dessert wine... it was ALL magnificently fresh, cooked and presented beautifully....
