A word from Famous Greek Kitchen
Opened 33 years ago this family style Greek restaurant has been a staple in Greenwich, CT. Today it has been passed down from one generation to the next. John's son Seve, a Culinary Institute of America graduate, has expanded the menu with simple, healthy, homemade dishes. The decor has been updated and the service still remains top notch.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Ingredients are fresh and finished dishes delicious. Hot fresh pita is amazing, the grilled lamb riblet appetizer is wonderful. The Tzatziki is traditionally prepared and great with the hot pita. The cheese pizza is also delicious. No dish I have tried has disappointed."

  • "My friend brought me here a year ago and I've been back so many times since because it's great! I've also brought a bunch of friends and they all really love it, so I know I'm not crazy. Stuffed grape leaves, baked saganaki or feta, lamb ribs, traditional Greek Salad, gyro, felafel - everything we have is really solid and well done. The prices are very reasonable, and service is really spot-on; the staff is attentive and friendly, and very, very helpful."

  • "Awesom,e and authentic food, but really weak wine list. Particularly the absence of Greek wines. Many are available...just have to push the distributor. Also, some good Californias like BV, Sterling, Acacia, Dynamite and Rosenblum work nicely with great Greek food."

  • "The entire experience was excellent; food was great, and the ambience was also just what we were looking for; quiet enough for plenty of easy conversation without being dead. This was a perfect meeting place between Fairfield, CT and Astoria, NY since we were meeting my daughter at a halfway point, and wanted a superior restaurant for our meeting."

  • "We have eaten at FGK a few times and its been consistently good. The greek food definitely has a bit of a modern twist to it. The warm feta cheese with figs and honey melts in your mouth. I had the grilled fish and it was done perfectly. Would recommend to my friends to try FGK"

  • "I had a reliably excellent dinner which included the Greek appetizer platter (shared by 3 of us) and one of the fish specials (pink snapper). Between the prompt and courteous service and the delicious food, it was a pleasure to dine at the Famous Greek Kitchen again."

  • "Consistently full tables are an indication of how good this restaurant is. The food and the service is impressive. The fair prices are another incentive to travel there. We have been there four times in the last month and a half and are going again next week to introduce more friends to this find."

  • "Found this restaurant on open table. Then looked at trip advisor. I was shocked to see this restaurant was rated number 1 In Greenwich. Well it was a fabulous meal. The rigatoni was better than any Italian restaurant I have been to in a while. The scallops were cooked just perfect and had great flavoring. Can't wait to go back."

  • "Famous has long been a popular neighborhood pizza/Greek restaurant with basic menu and good prices. Recently they remodeled and are trying to transition to a more upscale . The current status is that they are somewhat schizophrenic; on the one hand they still offer the pizza/Greek basics, but they now offer many specials. I was glad that I asked the prices as they were very expensive. Some of the waitstaff appear to be in training. They still offer booths, no tablecloths, and cutlery diner-style, i.e inside paper napkins held together with a paper strip. Overall the feed is abundant and of good quality, but if you go ask for the special prices unless you don't mind being surprised."

  • "We had delightful and authentic greek food. The decor is fresh and updated and the service was attentive. I had the lamb chops and they were perfect medium rare with a wonderful herb and lemon pesto. My husband had the fish. It was moist and the flavors were delicate to honor the fish. It was great to meet one of the sister owners. She was so kind and friendly! We will definitely be back alone or with our daughters !"

  • "Everything we ordered was absolutely delicious. Tasted like homemade, but from a chef who knows what he/she is doing!! The portions were generous and the prices reasonable. We hope to become regulars. It hits just the right note between a casual neighborhood place, and a special night out with friends. Service was impeccable. Lots of nearby parking."

  • "The restaurant was very crowded the night we went. As a result, the staff and kitchen were very frazzled The service was very slow and the food was not what was described by the waiter.i definitely would not return on a Saturday night. If there is a next time, I would go for lunch."

  • "You almost forget how great the food is with the warm and energetic atmosphere ! It's as if the staff is your family and you're over for sunday dinner :)"

  • "We have lived in Greenwich for years & had never heard of this restaurant. It has a very well decorated interior that is a pleasure to see. There are many choices on the menu and everything we had was very good. The staff are very friendly and the waiter we had was very enthusiastic about each dish with detailed descriptions. We will return there for sure."

  • "This restaurant is in isolated location, but easily accessed after you visit for first time. Recently renovated and large table/booths are very comfortable. Food is tasty with attractive plate presentation."

  • "This restaurant has been here for 35 years and we have been going there for 35 years. Always good and consistent, if basic. Recently they renovated and expanded the restaurant and added a few outside tables; there is a new menu with more choices. They seem to have added many dinner specials - but ask prices so you won't be shocked as the specials are far more expensive than what is listed on the menu, and they don't volunteer that info unless you ask.."

  • "Really don't know how we have missed this restaurant for so long. Just outstanding service and the food was over the top. Each and every recommended dish was excellent Second generation family member has taken over the kitchen and really kicked it up a notch Enjoy"

  • "Don't let the outside of this revamped family own restaurant deter you. The interior houses a beautifully renovated Greek/Italian restaurant and the cuisine reflects the second generation's CIA training. There were four people in our party and everyone was delighted with the food and friendly service."

  • "I love Greek food and I heard about this "Greek Kitchen" in Greenwich from a friend of mine, just had to try it! My husband and I went last night. There were so many items on the menu that we wanted to try. Our waiter recommended the Greek Tasting platter since we were newbies. It was fantastic, especially the greek fried cheese and grapleaves. I ordered the the whole fish Red Snapper and my husband ordered the Grilled Lamb Chops, both were equally amazing! We shared the "5 shades" salad and it's a must have if you go. We loved our wine and there was so many great choices. If your a wine enthusiast then you know that Bertani Amarone is amazing, and they have it at a great price! We will be back."
