Delicious Greek food, goodDelicious Greek food, good service, nice ambience, local treasure.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMLocals know to come for the foodOn visiting the restaurant, the ceiling skylight and the high brick walls hints that this building once had a very different history. But even the history buffs close their books whent he food arrives. My favorites: Arni mi Gigantes and the Poseidon Plate5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFriendly staff and owner:

Service was excellent and many great choices. The octopus was dense but otherwise everything else is good. Bread nothing to rave about. Ask for little oil as they tend to over oil everything.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMOur favorite spot on the NorthOur favorite spot on the North Shore. Service, menu, ambience

but that is a small complaint in an otherwise wonderful restaurant.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious food, authenticallyDelicious food, authentically Greek but uniquely different from the standard fare.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMW thoroughly enjoyed ourselvesW thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and ate too much. Nice to have such a local spot.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a wonderful gem inThis is a wonderful gem in downtown Winnetka and a great addition to the community. A notable feature is their Wine Spectator award winning list of interesting Greek wines that complement the cuisine very well. The servers are quite knowledgeable also on the selection and quick to offer recommendations for pairing wines to the entrees on their menu. Another notable feature is the outdoor patio which is great for al fresco dining in the summer and makes for a wonderful weekend lunch or brunch when the weather cooperates. I love the lamb burger which is delicious accompanied with the red pepper feta spread that it is served with. Goes great with a glass of their Greek Syrah.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a wonderful experienceHad a wonderful experience at Avli. Food and service were outstanding. Had a very helpful and informative waiter -- very attentive. Lentil salad with gyro meat was wonderful! Also recommend the Colorado lamb chops -- YUM! It has been quite a while since we have been to Avli -- due to a very bad experience previously (service and food) -- I'm hoping this recent experience is what to expect from now on!1/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have eaten here many times.We have eaten here many times.
