“The best of the two Olympias”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

This restaurant doesn't have the same ambiance of the Pier 21 establishment but the food and service is superb! Service has always been excellent. More locals than tourists I would say.

“Greek Cuisine.”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

This would be an excellent place to dine if you want some Greek Cuisine. I settled for the fish and chips and my friend ordered the pork loin riv eye.

“great greek salad...but final bill a surprise”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

I ordered a large Greek Salad (lunch special $10.99, regularly $11.99). I asked about how much feta & olives it included and he said it was a fair amount of feta but only 2-3 olives. I asked if he could be heavy on the feta and olives and in reading back the order he indicated extra feta and olives. What was delivered was a good supply of olives on the salad and an extra slice of feta, making me very happy. The salad tasted great.
My only complaint was that when the bill was presented, he charged me $13.88 for the salad. When I questioned the server he said it was for the additional olives. I suppose I should have asked but likewise, he should have told me he was going to change me so much more and I would have negotiated a bit as I finished the plate with a number of uneaten olives.
