“Nice Atmosphere, good food”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

Visited here with the wife for date night this past weekend. I made a reservation on Opentable which I would recommend and decided to arrive around 45 minutes early for drinks. The bar area is small but fun and looks into an open kitchen. The wine was good, slightly higher priced, and the bar service was a little slow. It was packed though.

The restaurant is nicely decorated and I recommend sitting inside unless you want the heat and a view of the parking lot. The service was great at the tables and we ordered a bottle of wine which you can cork and take with you when you leave. We had the calamari which was good, then shared a pasta dish. We asked to switch shrimp for scallops in the dish and the answer was "absolutely." The portion size was just right and left us room to enjoy a very good pistachio cheescake. The food was good and appropriately priced.

Very good place I would reccomend.

“Not the same restaurant”
Reviewed July 28, 2012

We had been to this place before their expansion. While it was noisy, it was worth it because of the excellent menu and service.


Last night, we went to the new expanded Ilios Noche. What a disappointment. The noise level was the same, but that was the least of it. The pastitsio, a classic Greek dish which I always order, was not even on the menu and was unavailable. I ordered the Moussaka instead. It came in a round dish and was thin and watery.


My wife ordered lambchops for $28.00. She got five tiny rib chops that were tasteless. To go with it, she ordered brocollini, which was very chewy and also tasteless.


The service was fine. We both felt that this was diner food in an upscale restaurant (not surprising because the owners of Ilios Noche also own the Big View Diner).


We will not be returning

“Renovation wonderful-- service not so much”
Reviewed July 19, 2012

Since the re-opening we have been 3 times. Each time the service (at bar where 'he' likes to sit) is just terrible. The 2 guys seem to be more concerned with how they looking shaking a martini they do are about the customers. Additionally-- the food quality seems to have suffered and many items to not come out at the same time.

“Recommend for unique cuisine”
Reviewed June 8, 2012

Always fresh and unique, this restaurant is one of my favorites in the Ballantyne area, which has a lot of chain restaurants. Food is well prepared and innovative with a good wine list. Looking forward to the renovation/ expansion, which will hopefully improve the atmosphere. Can be a bit noisy...

“It's Just Good!”
Reviewed May 31, 2012

Been going to this restaurant since it opened several years ago. It's like my second kitchen. They are currently expanding and renovating the whole restaurant so my family will be in mourning and starvation mode till they re-open. Great, friendly service. Family owned so they make you feel like family, in a good way! It's described as modern Greek. The food is stellar and reasonably priced. It's a gourmet restaurant without the pretentiousness. You'd feel comfortable in jeans or a coat and tie. One of the owners is a pastry chef so the desserts are fabulous. Try the taste of 3 desserts where you can sample 3 different desserts for about the price of one. The lamb burger is too die for and I don't even like lamb. The flatbread pizzas feature homemade crust with upscale toppings cooked in a wood burning oven. Best grilled chicken...moist and seasoned just right. Add to any of their delicious salads. All the pastas are homemade and come in half portions. Good seafood selections which vary depending on what's the freshest available. Very healthy choices and good portions...not too much, just the right size. Very nice wine list.
