We took a chance on Local Greek for Mother's Day and couldn't have been more satisfied. The weather could have cooperated a little better as we chose to sit outside, but that was no fault of the restaurant. Food and service was excellent and we will definitely return.

The portions were small for the high price.
I had brunch, but the dinner menu is highway robbery for a GReek place.
Others nearby are cheapter. The rent isn't that high in that part of Princeton so that's no excuse for the prices. You'd think they were right downtown on the main drag to charge so much...

Great food, and very nice staff. Our waiter had a great sense of humor and kept us entertained. The mezze dips and the stuffed squid were my favorite.

The food was very good and fresh. We had two appetizers and two entrees. Good size and nice flavors. Desert was where they really shined. I had a dough with custard and cinnamon. It was great and not too sweet. My husband had the baklava and loved it. All in all a great day out.

dolmadas were very good, as was the mousakka....lamb (souvlaki) was a little tough. I should have checked, but the lemon potatoes were good, but I prefer when they are crispy/roasted.Loved the balava and service was great

Food and service was very good. A few problems:
-Noise level was so high that we couldn't hear each other speak.
-Tzatziki sauce was not included. We asked for some and got a way-too-large serviing and was charged $5.95 for it.
-Server raved about the donuts, but when we tried to order there weren't any.

Nestled in a neighborhood street. Tight street, parking an issue with snow piles. Very attentive and friendty staff. Authentic Greek appetizers and entrees tasted great - indicative of a chef who gets it. Very broad selection covering all tastes. Tables well spaced. Comfortable neighborhood style environment. Will certainly return.

My favorite Princeton spot! Food was excellent. My family does not have greek roots, but we appreciated the taste and presentation of dishes. Restaurant is very clean, spacious and inviting.
