We had an incredible dinner ... everything was, well actually, perfect. From the wait staff to our substitutions to a perfect presentation and preparation. We absolutely loved it and highly recommend "It's Greek to Me"!! Go there, if you at all can!

The service was excellent, quick, concise and courteous. My Gyro plate consisted of "well-seasoned" and great tasting rotisserie broiled spiced lamb & beef. The portions are large, I had to take a little home for my lunch the following day, and again, enjoyed it very...More

I was quite surprised by the negative review of the Reuben sandwich. I probably have had over 12 Reuben sandwiches since the deli has opened. I found it not only good, but awesome and that's a big compliment coming from a New Yorker. I had...More

Please let us know if you need the volume turned up on you tzatziki. It is made with our house made yogurt, so it may be a little different than what most are used to. We can kick it up a notch on the ingredients...More

My Ruben sandwich was so bad that it wandered into the realm of inedible. Completely fatty and not flavorful. Why I did not send it back, I don't know, but it could have had something to do with the fact that our server did not...More
