“Just Like Greece....”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2012

Great Calimari entree. The greek salad (horiataki) was over dressed and soggy. As a result of the waiter not writing down our he forgot to bring a couple of sides we ordered. I would go back.

“Authentic Food, Authentic Everything”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2012

If you are going to visit NYC and want greek food................................go to Ithaka.

If you like squid......................this is pretty much as good as it gets.

The feta cheese in the used in the traditional dishes will let you know you are in the "real deal"

Everything is fresh.................................it is very busy so make a reservation on the week ends.

“A Nice Greek Touch on the East Side”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2011

For out of town visitors, Ithaka was a pleasant "find". White walls. Faux blue sky. But excellent Greek cuisine. Dolmadakia were the real deal. Other items from the appetizer selection were excellent ( this was a late dinner). Other tables having a full dinner seemed to be enjoying themselves. The service was prompt and friendly. If given the opportunity, I would return again.
