“Wow!!!”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

The food, service, and atmosphere are wonderful! I reccomend the Saganaki and the greek meatballs, they are to die for. Terrific outdoor dining area with a retractable glass roof. I will come here again!!

“Great fresh Greek food”
Reviewed September 16, 2012 via mobile

I love grilled octopus and if you do too, you know it's hard to find it done well! This was very good and fresh . We also had the gyro app. It was the best gyro I've ever had (and I'm not a big fan of this meat) Great food and service and not expensive! If you take the double decked to this great place! I did walk by and check the menues and atmosphere for the other 3 that were rated here on trip advisor. Not as nice in my opinon.

“Dining under the stars”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

Wonderful authentic Greek food. Big portions..some are big enough to share. Loved their Greek salad and as we all wanted one , for 4 people they brought out a huge platter of salad to share! We ordered tilapia , a gyro plate and to orders of a lemon strip chicken platter. All were tasty. The best part was dining in the open atrium under the stars....we felt like we were on the families patio.

“Beautiful restaurant - terrible food!”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

I was at the Athena for a banquet last night - what a lovely place - great servers too! Food just terrible. Saganaki so tough it was hard to cut and Salty beyond belief! Salad just OK - main course was some sort of chicken covered with cheese - out of 17 people perhaps one or two ate it - no one even wanted to take it home! Baklava seemed store bought - by that time I didn't care - just wanted to get out of there.

Such a shame....
