Has been our "go to" restaurant even during COVID days. Will always come back for the grilled octopus.
I placed an outdoor reservation for 8pm. When I arrived, I was informed that there weren't any tables available outdoors. When I politely explained to the waitress that I had reserved a table outside, and would be happy to wait for a table, she became very rude and said it wasn't her problem and that there wouldn't be any outdoor tables for the rest of the night. I've eaten at this many times and have never had any previous issues with the service. I understand that working under the stress of a pandemic isn't easy, but that doesn't offer an excuse for rudeness. If you can't guarantee outdoor setting, then don't list it on OPEN TABLE as a reservable option.
For those that don't feel comfortable eating inside yet, I would advise taking your business elsewhere.
Always great. Octopus and lamb!
Amazing restaurant with the best food! Every time we go to NYC it’s a must!
We sat outside and they have a cute outdoor seating. Food was very good and very reasonable. We live close and will definitely make this a local favorite.
Must have some supply issues, we went on a Tuesday night and they couldn’t serve us half of the items on the menu.
Had a great time with friends! Food amazing and service relaxed and easy! We loved it so much! ❤️
I love the food at Souvlaki GR - it is truly authentic Greek food - makes me feel like I am back in Greece. :)
Love this place; the food is delicious and prices are reasonable
Great Greek food at reasonable prices. I really like this place!
Excellent food and service. This is a real neighborhood gem. Highly recommend.
One of the beat Greek restaurants in Manhattan!
Food was fresh and delicious, service excellent and everyone was extremely friendly. Wonderful dinner.
A little loud for business meeting.
Showed up for my 6 p.m. reservation exactly on time, but had to wait for a table. A group of 6 showed up at 6:30 for their 5:30 reservation. They moved a group of 4 who were seated at a large table to MY table and the group that was an hour late to the large table. So instead of seating my group, they told me I had to be "flexible" and made me wait another 20 minutes. I mean, honestly? Rude. I guess they forgot the meaning of customer service. If someone comes an hour late, why should I suffer the consequences?
We had a break from an event and made a reservation. We were seated right away. The octopus was amazing! The Honey Jack Lemonade caused us to drink more than we planned! The service was wonderful! Hercules, our waiter, was so sweet. We even got complimentary ouzo shots at the end of the meal because we "were nice". The only downside is only one bathroom in total for both men and women. But go! We'll be back for sure!
The food is always consistently great. The service is unmatched. My go to for meeting friends or a cute date night!
Reservations mean nothing; we were in a crowd fighting to even talk to the hostess, who couldn't seat us for at least 30 minutes. We had to scramble to make plans before an 8:00 curtain. Still got the OT points, though, which is a credit to how disorganized they are.
Great good, but very loud and rushed. Wouldn’t recommend if you plan on taking it slow, otherwise amazing Greek food!
Wonderful & authentic Greek menu and superbe service. Have been here several times now will definitely return.
Definitely book ahead - especially on a Friday night pre theater. I alway over order ( we had 3 mezzes and two mains) -great to share. Lamb chops are yummy.
Excellent voice but VERY cramped seating space.
Always amazing food & the service.
Excellent food and service. This restaurant is a real neighborhood gem. I highly recommend
The food was excellent! Our only issue was that the “bottomless” blink champagne isn’t bottomless. You pay for every bottle after the first bottle. We even asked prior to ordering the details of the bottomless champagne and we were given different information. Our bill ended up being double what it should have been.
Simply the best!
Great food. Love this place. Served quick. Skewers are a good start. Pastitsio is the best.
The good is very good for the price, casual, noisy and crowded. Portions good size
Lovely place. Great food. Very authentic.
I love the food here so much - but it is so loud you can't speak to your dining guests.... ugh.. hate that!
Food was delicious. Hostess wasn't very kind, but maybe she was having a bad day. Would definitely go back.
This was my third time dining in at the restaurant. I order in often as I really like the food.
We ordered the lamb special. It was almost all fat and bone. Very little meat. I wouldn’t order this again as it was very disappointing
My server, Neoni, was fantastic as she was the last time I dined at the restaurant.
Wonderful restaurant. Great buzzy atmosphere, quite harried but friendly. Even with a reservation you always have to wait, but it’s worth it. If you have somewhere to be after dinner, add a half-hour to your reservation time. Great octopus, lamb, Greek salad, fries with feta.
We came here soon after the restaurant opened and loved the food and it had a nice quiet atmosphere. I'm so happy they have so many people who want to eat here, but it has become a nightmare for a nice, relaxing dinner. We went on a Saturday night with a reservation, but our table wasn't ready when we arrived. We waited about 10-15 minutes and were shown to our table. All of the seating is very cramped and the main objective of the staff is just to get the hordes in and out. The food we ordered was delicious, but it all came so quickly (my main course arrived when I was not even halfway through my appetizer). The overall dynamic of the restaurant is so frenetic that it is impossible to feel like you've had a dinner out. I would like to think I will come to this restaurant again, but maybe on a weeknight early in the week when nothing is going on at Carnegie Hall or City Center.
Meh! Terribly noisy and crowded. Chicken Lemon Rice soup had no rice, thin and watery. Sliders were tough balls of meat. Lamb chops overcooked, my friend asked for medium-rare and they were gray, through and through. Service was quick but brusque. Couldn't wait to leave because of the noise level. Price was low, so a reasonable budget option. Other people seemed to be having a good, if raucous, time, but it was not great for me.
I loved this little gem. The food was so delicious and tasty. Our server was very attentive and pleasant. I look forward to going again very soon!!!
This is some of the most delicious greek food I've had in NYC, and all of it is fairly inexpensive. Service is fast and attentive. The decor of the place is really cool--I feel like I'm in Santorini--but the space is incredibly loud and claustrophobic. It's a great place to go for a casual meal (I've been here many times), but not the ideal place for an intimate conversation. You'll feel like you're sitting on someone else's lap. Other than that, it's wonderful.
Small dining area that can get noisy during peak hours. Food was okay and a decent value. Wouldn't order the side of fries since you get those with a lot of the sandwiches and entrees (although they don't necessarily make that clear on the menu)
Terrible Rude Hostess! We had reservations and arrived 4 minutes after our reservation time. We were told that we could only have 45 minutes to eat and then we would have to leave the restaurant because they had a large party coming to the restaurant. When we asked why they did not let us know prior, she basically told us she didn't care and that it would be fine since most people only need 45 minutes to 1 hour to eat. We then asked if we could stay for 1 hour and she said no.
I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. They were nasty and did not care about customer service.
Great food great price! Will definitely be back a lot!
