“45 Years of Great Food”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

I have been eating at this location for 45 years. It has transitioned from the Tropicana to Costellos and then to Grecos. All under the gracious hosting of Gus Kofinis and his family.
Through the transitions the quality of the food has been excellent and continues to put a smile on my face and satiates the culinary demands of my stomach. Lots of Ah Ha moments!

For this particular lunch I had the Beef Tenderloin Tips. Tender in a delicious sauce with great flavour! and cooked perfectly. Started off with a very tasty Cream of Potato soup.

What a great combination.... the gracious welcoming of Gus, Jimmy and their friendly staff along with the great food offerings. Gus and now Jimmy have quietly been the unsung heroes of the Kingston culinary scene with their excellent food. The sauces,the bases, the dressings, the soups etc. have been developed over the years and are "made from scratch". Fresh and Delicious! This leads into some of the best Meat and Pasta Entrées in the city and at Great Value!
Try it.... you'll love it!

“FABULOUS”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

While traveling to Kingston on business, I took a party of 8 people to Greco's on Princess St. Starting with the professional waiter who pointed-out all the specials for the evening and some of the best wines both red & white, we left completely satisfied and my guest were enthusiastic how an out-of-towner could find such a great restaurant in their city. Thank you Jimmy the owner for making our evening so special.. We'll see you our next time in Kingston. Jack Julian Oakville, ON.

“Great service, but the food was only okay”
Reviewed November 24, 2013

We were overwhelmed by the service, but after reading the other reviews of this popular restaurant we were a bit disappointed by the food.
The staff here were attentive and efficient. Our waiter was personable and always available to us, no matter what else he was doing.
The wine list was fine, but the selection of wines by the glass was limited.
We were underwhelmed by the food: our caesar salad was soggy; my rack of lamb was dry and overcooked; my partner's filet of sole was breaded and fried, not sautéed as the menu claimed.
We were disappointed by our experience at Grecos, but we're prepared to try it again when we return to Kingston.

“Wow”

Best Greek food in town, don't search any further. The portions are enormous, definitely leftovers the next day...and still delicious.
