Diner Reviews
  • "We had been to Axios before for dinner, but we never thought of it for brunch until we saw a Living Social deal including mimosas, entrees and a pastry to share. We really enjoyed our experience. Our server was quick and efficient but also friendly. Our food was tasty too. I had the fig pancakes, and my fiancé had the omelet with added gyro meat. The only criticism I can share is that one or two of my pancakes were cooked a little too long and were kind of crispy on one side."

  • "Our New York City cousins were visiting and we took they to Axios...and we had a great evening. Ann is a professional and very enthusiastic waitperson and all four of us enjoyed our meal....especially the calamari appetizer, and my lamb rib and chicken dish made with deep purple wine (sorry, don't remember the name.) We are going back tonight with our best couple friends."

  • "All the dishes being served looked so good but we had a new salad on the menu with arugula and cayenne pepper which was a fantastic start. My wife got Moussaka and I had Lamb Giouvetsi which were both excellent. Wine pairings suggested were spot on and finished with some ouzo - what a great meal! Portions sized for leftovers which was an added bonus."

  • "My wife and I like Axios, and have enjoyed all four or five times we've been, but our recent visit for brunch didn't measure up. The coffee came lukewarm and the cream put in the coffee had curdled. The bowl of soup, which just involves pouring into the bowl and bringing out, took a very long time to come out, and right on its heels came the entrees. Then, the fig pancakes with candied nuts arrived with none of the candied nuts. My wife had to ask about it twice. Finally, the situation was kind of remedied when they were packaged up and put in a carry out box with the dessert we decided to take home with us. I can report that the split pea soup, Greek salad and Greek dessert were fine. Altogether, our most shaky experience at Axios."

  • "Charming corner view with attentive service and very vibrant menu. Had a lovely time and enjoyed the view of the neighborhood with Greek food both traditional and newer variations."

  • "A real gem for a date, a meal with friends,with good food and wine. The special occasions are a plus. Looking forward to the day when its venue can expand somewhat,so that the occasional Greek music and dance has room."

  • "I am half Greek and love the food at Axios. The flavors are authentic and delicious with a modern take. Truly great. I ordinarily avoid Greek restaurants because the food is never as good as what my grandmother and mother used to make. However, Axios is fantastic. Great service and drinks too"

  • "Food wasn't fresh, wasn't skillfully prepared, wasn't at the proper temperature and wasn't served by competent people. It was disappointing in every way."

  • "We have been eating at Axios since they opened and have always had an excellent experience. Not just the best Greek restaurant in Denver, but one of the best restaurants in Denver. Service is attentive without being overbearing. Food is excellent and well presented. Telly, the owner, always manages to stop by to see how everything is. The only negative is that Axios is not open for lunch during the week."

  • "This place was amazing! The service was really impressive. The owner was very active in making sure everything was great, and the server was really helpful and informative, too. The food was the best part, though. We got the dolmades to start and then the Arni Psito and the Lamb Giouvetsi. Everything tasted sooo good! I'm sure a lot of time and care went into crafting the recipes, and it was obvious in how great the results were. This was our first time visiting, but we will returning, as well as telling our friends about it."

  • "We ventured to Axios with an Amazon Local deal for $50. We were seated at the front in a small table that faced the road, to see the way the nightlife was in the area. We were greeted with a hearty smile and appreciation for using an Amazon Local deal (which is a nice change of pace from how people usually react to some sort of deal voucher). Our waitress gave us recommendations on food and drink, and we went with a nice hummus plate, pork loin with rice, and pork chop. The hummus plate was the perfect size and a nice space filler before the main courses. I had the most giant hunk of pork I've ever had at a restaurant, and it was cooked to perfection. The drinks were unique and a nice complement to the entrees. A great experience!"

  • "My mom and I both ordered the Chicken Mavrodaphne. The presentation of the dish and the flavor was outstanding! The Greek Sangria was great too. For dessert we both had the tasty Torta Kataifi. One piece is enough for two people to share. Overall I was impressed with the service and quality of the ingredients. "

  • "In the sake of full disclosure, I'm vegan. My dining companion wasn't. When I asked the waitress the dreaded question: "Is this vegan?" she went back and asked the chef about all the vegetarian dishes and even looked at the ingredients in the pita bread (which isn't vegan). From there, she adjusted the hummus/skordalia/tzatziki platter to veganize it by replacing the tzatziki with extra hummus and skordalia and the pita with extra veggies and house bread. THE DISH WAS AS BEAUTIFULLY PRESENTED AS IT WAS TASTILY MADE!! Win. Win. The Berkley neighborhood is charming and Axios was quaint. That said, for a smallish, hippish place with affordable and amazing food, it was easy to change our reservation at the last minute. "

  • "First time at Axios and loved it; food was outstanding and servers were helpful and friendly. Lamb and souvlaki, yum! Had a nice table for four in the front near window so could watch the Tennyson action. Chocolate dessert not a hit but the olive oil cake was fabulous. Go here for dinner, you wll not be sorry!! Very fair prices too."

  • "We started with spanakopita (we figured that was a safe choice for a place we'd never been). Mistake. It was terrible. Both of us were worried that our entrees would be as bad, but were pleasantly surprised. My partner's grouper was excellent, he tells me (I don't do fish), and my chicken mavrodaphne was wonderful. The wine was nice, as was the tea afterward, and my partner enjoyed the baklava very much."

  • "I rarely eat out because I am conscious about avoiding GMO foods. Axios offered organic vegetarian choices that were incredible. The service was outstanding, relaxed and attentive (not too attentive to our leisure dinner - we were there with friends for four hours). I will visit them again and recommend them to all my friends. Yeah for great food, great service and a fun place."

  • "Busy place and the service was fine, just a bit slow due to the volume. The food was really good and thoroughly enjoyable. A bit on the pricy side but all in all a great experience."

  • "We loved everything about this place. We've been looking for a decent Greek place in Denver, and this is Certainly the best one we've found. Food was awesome, wait staff very attentive and fun. The atmosphere was really enjoyable, very eclectic patrons, and decor not Greek kitsch, but kinda cool Modern trend. Very relaxing and engaging. To top it off, there was a delay in getting our order, but the management preempted a complaint by Proactively apologizing, telling us THEIR mistake, and then buying us a round of drinks. That's awesome customer service in my book, when a problem arises, don't mince around, address it and Take care of the customer. Their ability to do that so sincerely really helped earn kudos from us. Highly recommended!"

  • "A very nice little restaurant with great service and amazingly tasty greek food at a reasonable price. We had the Spanakopita for an appetizer, small but crip and delicious. I tried the Arni Psito, slow braised lamb ribs and my wife had the Chicken Mavrodaphne, a pan seared chicken breast in a sweet wine sauce. Both dishes were outstanding in flavor and tenderness. We had our meals paired with Greek wine selected by our server, absolutely perfect compliment to the dinner. We finished by spitting a Baklava, so good we should have ordered two! To finish everything in a big Greek fashion I decided to give Ouzo a try...that was very different, I highly recommend it with ice and water on the side and add till it tastes good/better."

  • "6 of us enjoyed 2 appetizers, Spanakopita, crispy & delicious & the Dolmades were tasty. The waitress provided samples of wines we were curious about before ordering a glass, a very nice touch. Entrees were the lamb shoulder special, which melted in your mouth, the Arnipsisto, braised lamb ribs, a chicken dish w/sauteed spinach & Brizole, a huge moist & tender pork chop. There was not a drop of food left on anyone's plate.....and then we ordered desserts! The Baklava is a generous serving with whipped cream & drizzled with honey, the Torta Kataifi is a wedge of a ricotta cake which seemed a little bland, the Little Man Ice Cream is delicious! We are always delighted to dine at Axios!! We wish we lived closer to visit more often!"

  • "My husband and I love Greek food, but don't often find it in a more upscale environment. The menu was diverse enough that you had the option between more basic options, to great specials for the more adventurous. And I always appreciate regional wine being paired with the food. The Greek wine was delicious."

  • "My husband and I went for a belated Valentine's dinner and it was a fantastic experience! The wait staff was very friendly and took a lot of time helping us through our meal decisions. We had a flambé appetizer that was amazing and the dinners were so interesting and delicious. We were having a date night and the mood and lighting was very romantic but it was also nice to see kid friendly options on the menu and the atmosphere and music was lively so kids fit in too. We will definitely be back! Thank you Axios!"

  • "I really enjoy eating at Axios, The service & food are spectacular & it sits in a great neighborhood!! The server was incredibly knowledgeable on each dish's taste & ingredients as well as was able to pair each dish well with different wines they had to offer. The Dolmatas were some of the best I have had, & served warm apposed to cold like most places offer them. Thte Lamb was incredibly tender & full of flavor. My dates meal was so good I ate half of her meal even tho I was already stuffed from mine.. The Baklava is amazing, so don't leave without trying it!!"
