Had business dinner here tonight, love the place! Good to find a Greek poace in Midwest for sure!
We were seated promptly, restaurant was a bit empty when we walked in at 1800, but quickly filled up.

We shared falafel and saganaki kasseri cheese, flamed at your table with vodka and lemon), priced at a reasonable $6.99.

For my main course I had Pikilia "taste Of Athens"
a combination featuring mousaka, pastichio, spanikopita, tyropit, a gyro meat, dolmades, pita and tzatziki, all accompanied by the Greek beer. Price was $23.99.

And how else to finish but with Baklava
phyllo dough pastry layered with finely chopped walnuts and honey throughout, plus greek coffee

Located in a strip mall on the northeast corner of 86th and Ditch. Plenty of parking. Great food. Olive tamp was delicious and served with plenty of pita. Followed by a lovely Greek salad. The pastichio, lamb shank, grouper and Mediterranean spaghetti with shrimp got rave reviews. Great service. Pleasant atmosphere. Cant go wrong here.

Our second visit here as we passed thru Indy on a family visit did not disappoint. Friendly and efficient servers served us a delicious Greek meal once again. Octopus appetizer was to die for followed by a combo plate for my hubby and the moussaka for meal. Greek salads included and we had the lentil soup and lemon rice soup. Also had a Blue Aegean martini and a chocolate one for dessert. Can’t wait to go back! Opa!

We intended to eat Thai, but it was closed that evening and so we tried Athens on 86th, having been there once before. The greeter was most pleasant, the restaurant comfortably full but not loud, and the menu looked interesting. However, we sat at the table quite some time before the waitress appeared, and not especially friendly when she arrived. Unfortunately, her inattentiveness and poor service prevailed throughout the meal and marred what was otherwise a pleasant evening. We ordered the gigantes appetizer and spanakopita. The gigantes was a marvelous sauté of lima beans with an accompanying sauce and sections of pita. Fabulous. The spanakopita was also better than I normally expect. For the main course we had the dinner grouper special. The accompanying Greek salad was ok, the green beans were the typical overcooked but tasty green beans that is the norm at Greek restaurants, and the rice unexceptional. The fish was interesting but overly salty to my palette. We had glasses of their house red that was very tasty. In summary, lovely appetizers and wine, disappointing fish, nice atmosphere, and unpleasant server. Oh well. We may try again in a year or so.

Went for dinner with a friend. I ordered a pasta dish with seafood (can't remember the name) and it came with a small starter salad and melt in your mouth toasted bread and my friend ordered the classic gyro, Greek fries, and we shared Effie's Galactobouriko for dessert. Everything was delicious! I was very impressed with our waitress who was very friendly and attentive and also had great recommendations and descriptions of the items. I will be back!
