“Don't miss this place.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2013 via mobile

Atmosphere. Service. Food. And did I mention great prices? We tried lamb shanks and several appetizers including kalamari, feta with olives, and Spanakopita. Everything was A+++. Our waiter, Jake, was extremely attentive and very accommodating. We allowed ourselves 1 and a half hours to have dinner and make a concert and had plenty of extra time. Visit this place soon and visit often. You will not regret it.

“Fabulous as usual!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2013 via mobile

What a great experience again! We have been to Greco's many times and always enjoyed it. This visit we were celebrating a birthday. The food was marvelous, and the waiter was attentive, knowledgeable about the dishes, and was quite comical, making our night tremendously enjoyable! Greco's has been one of my favorites for two decades now, and every visit reminds me why they are at the top of my list :) thanks for a great night!!

“Has Potential”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013

We made an early reservation for a mid-week anniversary celebration.

Upon our pre 6:00 PM arrival we entered a bistro style restaurant occupied by a handful of patrons which with in minutes quickly changed. Beginning with a string of arrivals from both the front and back doors, it all created a lot of traffic by our table and more than few traffic jams as staff and patrons coming from the front and back all met up in the middle. It was made all the more complicated by the large numbers who had entered via the back door but now had to make their way to the front to sort out tables and reservations!

Apparently on a busy night and weekends there is a line up outside the doors which means guaranteed seating definitely requires a reservation and must make for a very chaotic floor!

We found all the staff very friendly but pushed for time. Our waiter was running about and must have stopped by the table no less than five or six times in the beginning, as each time he would begin to answer part of a question or offer drinks or begin his specials spiel, the buzzer on his belt would go off summoning him back to the kitchen and then he would rush by spouting something out as he headed to another table before returning to us.

We never really felt we had the waiter’s full attention; however we did get that the regular nightly special of lamb shank was highly recommended but to order fast as they always ran out!

We settled on a Caesar salad to start, the lamb shank and the gourmet chicken. Our waiter offered some wine recommendations and after a few samples we picked out a reasonably priced suitable bottle of Chilean red wine.

The Caesar salad was excellent and came with just the right amount of their delicious in house home-made dressing which made the salad one of the tastiest we have enjoyed in some time.

The lamb shank was tender and meaty and cooked to perfection and absolutely mouth-watering delicious! The gourmet chicken wrapped around ham was dry, overcooked and disappointing to the point that we ate only a few bites

The waiter came by and observed the overcooked meat and agreed that it was “quite dried out” and “that he would let the kitchen know” – however there was no offer to replace the meal and the full cost remained on our final bill!

All in all we had one great lamb shank meal, some good wine in a decent atmosphere at a very reasonable cost of just under $100.00. However the overall experience was somewhat disappointing!

While our first experience was not a perfect five star gourmet experience, however it was perhaps barely satisfactory enough to warrant a possible revisit sometime in the future!
