“New Year's Day Disaster!!!!!”
Reviewed February 3, 2014

My family and I went to Pantheon on New Years Day 2014. There were 9 people in our party in total. One of our guests was visiting from Greece for the holidays.

I had made a reservation a few days prior. When we arrived at 2pm, the restaurant only had 1 other table and they gave us 4 small round tables in the back. It felt like we were sitting at 4 separate tables. The set up was extremely poor.

Let me start off by saying that we are a Greek family. We ordered Mousaka and Roast Lamb. The moussaka was totally tasteless. There were absolutely no spices used. No salt, no pepper,no nutmeg. The béchamel was horrible. The ground beef didn't taste right either. They must have mixed it with some other meat. I rate this dish 1/10.......the 1 is for the eggplant used in the recipe. There was no way that a Greek cook made this dish. It must have been a foreigner who does not know how to correctly spice greek dishes.

We asked the waiter how the lamb was cooked and he told us it was in the oven. When the dish came, it was covered in a red sauce and had a terrible taste. The greek salad was also served with a red dressing.....perphaps paprika added to the oil??? Both the lamb and salad were not 'greek'.

I think Pantheon has changed their cooks/chefs. Whoever was working on NewYear's Day did not know what they were doing. That was not Greek food that we had. It was very bad.

When the bill came, I was appalled that there was a 15% gratuity automatically added to the bill! We are in the restaurant business ourselves, and find this practise wrong. A customer choses to add a tip for the service and the food. Pantheon did not deserve such a big tip for what they served us.

We will never go back to Pantheon after our experience.

“Very Good”
Reviewed January 20, 2014

We had a great meal by this family run place. There is a waiter who sings like a donkey...too funny. And they create a truly Greek feel. Beware of automatic tip on large parties. Like it alot.

“Always Great!”
Reviewed January 11, 2014

Service is excellent! Food is amazing! Especially the chicken dinner. Hummus and Saganaki were excellent. Greek honey cake is so good! I guess they have a new chef because we had an amazing dinner. It was like going to Greece for 2 Hours! We had wine from Chile which was very good. We had a great time! Not one complaint and will be back again!!! We live one hour north of Toronto and always come back to this restaurant for a great meal!
