A word from Greekfest
Voted the “Best Greek Restaurant in Phoenix” for the past 23 years. We are Arizona's Greek dining experience. Greekfest hosts a unique Greek dining environment where all the things that make life most enjoyable come together through a celebration of food, wine, good company, spirited music, and memorable conversation. Tradition and research have combined to make Greekfest the quintessence of the Greek Island atmosphere and culinary experience; its design and decoration exemplify the cultural, social, and aesthetical Hellenic Archipelago. Greekfest prizes itself on its reputation for culinary innovation and excellence. With a great variety of fresh seafood and delicately prepared lamb entrees, Greekfest robustly captures the essence of European (Mediterranean) cuisine and fuses it with dynamism and innovation.

Diner Reviews
  • "We've been to Greekfest on several occasions and the food has always been good - but this past visit it was outstanding!! Everything was really, really delicious and we could tell that they've cranked it up a notch - well done!!"

  • "This is a restaurant that we come back to from time to time for some excellent Greek food. The menu has been updated. I had the ravioli which was particularly good. My wife had the chicken souvlaki which was very good. The atmosphere is romantic. I am not sure why there isn't more business here. The prices are very reasonable and the owner (Susan) and waitstaff were quite personable and attentive. We actually used this restaurant to cater my wife's birthday party several years ago (take away) and they did a wonderful job."

  • "Had a lovely, leisurely dinner with my better half. Service was tops, and we had a delightful chat with Susan, the owner. Food was outstanding, and our Polish waiter did an amazing Greek waiter impression! We only get to dinner in Phoenix a few times a year, but this will jump to the top of our list now."

  • "A wonderful restaurant hidden behind commercial buildings. Once you find this gem one will not be disappointed in the cuisine for Greek dining. The owner came to the table greeted us as guest and made us all feel welcome. Looking forward to my next dinning experience. "

  • "food quality was very good. All of the food was expensive with very small portions. The waiter tried to upsell on everything. Restaurant was practically empty probably due to pricing and small portions. although the food was very good. We will never return."

  • "We've eaten at Greekfest many, many times over the past 25 years. The food is amazing, and the atmosphere beautiful. Greekfest is the entire dining experience. From the wine, and appetizers, the entrees to the dessert and coffee, it is the total dining experience. Best Greek food you can experience!"

  • "Greek Fest is special in today's fast food / corporate resturant world. Real care in everything from the menu to the service. Items that cannot be found elsewhere and that are individually prepared are the norm. Greek Fest will always be at the top of my resturant list!"

  • "One of the best dining experience of my life. My date and I spent a pretty penny, but with it. Though, if you're smart, you can budget a reasonable prices meal. They publish the menu online to make it easier to do it in advance. The good was some of the best I've eaten. Awesome service and personable owners. Awesome place!"

  • "The lamb and baklava especially were delicious. Lots of great mezze and lots of Greek wines available. We had an awesome anniversary dinner here and will go back next time we are craving Greek food!"

  • "Our server and the owner were very nice and kept checking to make sure things were ok. It is very pretty on the inside and not very quiet, but they were not busy. The food was good, just different from the other Greek restaurants that we have dined. It is tucked away from the main street so tricky to find as there is no sign on Camelback."
    Dined on 5/17/2013
  • "The food at GreekFest is a very sophisticated and creative presentation of traditional Greek flavors. Food is local, fresh and carefully crafted as the owner chef and owner manager take exceptional pride in their culinary offerings and establishment. You feel as though you have stepped into a high-end Athens or Greek seaside restaurant. While simple Greek traditional cooking is offered, the menu expands to dishes not found in the typical Greek Taverna. Service is professional and well paced, and one of the owners will visit your table during the meal to insure that you are very happy and that your expectations are exceeded. Nightly special dishes are offered that raise the level of creativity. Enjoy!"

  • "Food was amazing; all the Greek favorites. The ravioli is very special. Service was warm and management was hospitable. The owner wrote a personal email to us regarding my mother's birthday celebration and then stopped by our table with her well wishes and a complimentary dessert that was wrapped to take home. Very special."

  • "The food here was average, and pricy,$86.00 for two of us without cocktails. The menu consisted of small plates,with most of the small plates in the $14 price range. Expensive for Greek food, and they even charged for pita bread! There were only 4 other couples in the restaurant, yet getting our food was extremely slow. Our server was very pleasant, but completely inattentive. The owner came to the table twice to greet us and make us feel welcome. She said that it was only her and her husband in the kitchen. I don't know how they can continue to stay in business with such little business. I would not recommend this restaurant."

  • "The food is very good here, but at a steep price. The menu is geared towards small plates, which is fine, but not at the prices they charge. Most of the small plates were in the $14 price range. Excessive for Greek food, and I'm Greek and I should know. They even charged for pita bread! The place only had a total of 4 tables when we arrived, yet getting our food was extremely slow. Our server was very pleasant, but completely inattentive. Had to constantly flag him down. We haven't been here for years, now I remember why. I don't know how they can keep the doors open with such little business. We will never return. We will go back to our favorite Greek restaurant, Greektown on N. 7th street."

  • "We were there on a Saturday night and the place was dead. There were no more than 10 people in the restaurant the whole time we were there. The food was tasty, however the portions were small for the price charged. Don't know how they stay in business. The owner did come to our table to greet us and see if we liked our food."

  • "When we want a special treat, we head for Greekfest! Just one step insdie the door, and you are transported thousands of miles away, to spectacular Greece. The variety and excellence of the menu comes with moderate prices, and the service is always personal and superb."

  • "We really enjoy Greek food and could not have been more pleased with Greekfest. Everything we had was delicious. There was some creativity with the dishes but not so much that you lost the flavors you love. We would definitely return."

  • "Our cultures are very close in foods and traditions. That was one of the reasons for which I picked this restaurant for dinner and to celebrate my husband's birthday.The ambiance was beautiful and intimate. However, even if all the reviews on the internet were just excellent on food and service, we were very, very disappointed. We waited an hour for the food to come and the most famous lamb shank was hard to eat! The meat was chewy and hard to eat.The lamb was probably older. Absolutely nothing special or out of this world in my filee Mignon. For three people that consumed 3 main dishes, one salad, one tzatziki and one glass of wine to pay $138, is way too much. We were just very disappointed and our expectations shuttered."

  • "This was a great authentic Greek experience in dining! Having lived in Greece and being accustomed to Greek food and drink, I was excited to see things on the menu that are unique to Greece and not merely 'Mediterranean food.' There were standards like hummus, but also great dishes like arni fricassee, moussaka and pestitio. This was an enjoyable meal with a small groug of friends (Though they would host larger groups well also) and they were very kid friendly and wonderfully hospitable. The Deserts too were well constructed and delicious! The atmosphere, though slow and quiet the night we were there, was unmistakably Greek and authentic."

  • "The food, service, and atmosphere at Greekfest is wonderful. Even though I enjoyed my visit very much, I would recommend it with some hesitation. Prices are on the high side and portions are quite small. I probably will not return because of that, but it is a great place to go if you are in the mood for authentic Greek food and a unique atmosphere."

  • "We experienced an authentic Greek dining experience in a Greek Island atmosphere with decorations that add to the Mediterranean atmosphere. The fresh seafood and lamb entrees were impressive. We decided on the Lamb Souvlaki, a marinated prime domestic lamb grilled on a skewer, served with a Greek salad and Solomos "Chios," a filet of fresh salmon baked in a delicate fresh vegetable-Kakavia sauce, with feta cheese, herbs, pine nuts, and olives, served with a Greek salad. Both were delicious. The authentic Greek seasonings produced flavors that made this a memorable experience. For dessert, we chose the Whiskey Soufflé, a whiskey mousse with fresh orange slices and white sponge, surrounded by dark chocolate and the Tiramisu. Excellent!"

  • "There are some restaurants that you want to return to simply because of their warm, impeccable service. Greekfest is one of those. I was a solo diner, and the gracious server never made it seem as if he wished there were more in my party. The owner even came out and chatted with me twice and told me some of the restaurant's long-standing history. The restaurant offers a variety of Greek beers and well-prepared Greek dishes, including ones I had never seen on other menus. My entree came with a Greek salad topped with a fantastic light vinaigrette and feta cheese. The entree itself arrived in a piping hot dish. Chunks of braised lamb smothered perfectly prepared orzo. The dish was a delight (and quite filling). Visit this place!"

  • "Wow! What a find (once you find it...look behind the Bank of America). Friendliest proprietress ever! She and her husband cook everything. And everything was terrific. We had a party of 7 and we were treated like royalty. Every dish was better than the last. Even old standards like hummus were better than I'd ever had. We had a great meal and overall fantastic experience."

  • "We're from Chicago, and we've tried for years to find a "real" Greek restaurant when we visit Scottsdale. Most of them don't serve a lot of traditional dishes that we enjoy, because they say that the people in Scottsdale don't like garlic. What?! At any rate, we found Greekfest and we were pleased to find many of our favorite dishes on the menu. The skordalia was wonderful! The staff was very attentive and friendly. We'll definitely visit again when we're back in town!"
