We have been to Pontos many times in the past year and are never disappointed. They can make just about anything you want and it it very family-friendly.

I agree with the other excellent reviews. Last night was our first experience there and we are planning another and another with family and friends. This is the latest "best Greek restaurant" in the area. Being family owned and run be the reason.

We happened upon this restaurant on a side street in Norwalk one evening after we had already eaten and vowed to return. We were very happy that we did.

Pontos serves authentic Greek cuisine and is a bustling little place that is bright and clean with excellent service. Food came out fast despite patrons seated at almost every table.

Everything we had was excellent right down to the Greek coffee. We will return to this great little place which in our opinion is better than any rival eatery in the larger cities.

A gem of a Greek restaurant,  wonderfully priced!   Their menu is the real deal, and we have not had such authentic Greek cuisine, since frequenting Greek town, in Chicago!
order the gryos and flaming saganaki.. close to the garden cinema, it is a perfect place to have dinner before heading across the street to the Garden cinema... it is quaint,  cozy.friendly, amazingly priced, and delicious!

My parents and I went to Pontos for lunch and the place was not busy. So we thought that we would get great service. We were very wrong. We had to ask for water and our drinks 3+ times. It took for ever to order. The menu is limited - no spanakopita (spinach pie) or Tyropita (cheese pie). But the avgolemono soup ( chicken lemon) was very good,big pieces of chicken and orzo. Get the bowl because the cups are tiny. The Xorta salad and the beet & garlic salad were both yummy and served cold.The tzaziki had a great hit of favor for all the garlic lovers out there. The Gyro platter is huge and worth the money. The souvlaki was dry and the spices are not to my taste. They use a lot of cumin . The baklava was OK and they were out of most of the desserts. It took forever to get anything from our waitress. She ignored us, talked on the phone, to her friends or was in the kitchen. Most of the time we were her only table. Come to find out she is one of the owners. I'd say she needs better training.
