    Outstanding food and service. I had the lamb chops and my hubby had the ribs and they were delicious! Alexandria was out waitress and made the recommendations and she was spot on. Meat was super tender and the ribs literally fell off the bone. Can't wait to go back!

    Went back to the Providence Road location and we liked the flavor of our food selections better. The chicken souvlaki taste was very different from the Quail Hollow location; no smokiness or "cumin" like flavor. Plentiful chicken and the best Tzaziki sauce around. That combined with a half order of the Ilios salad made for one hefty lunch. Back on Providence Road; something to be said for the original "Ilios Noche".

    We love Ilios Noche!! We have always loved the food and the service and it keeps getting better! We took our daughters for their 18th birthday dinner and had a wonderful meal. The lamb shank was fabulous!! We were treated to a surprise - a dessert for each of the birthday girls - it was something I hadn't seen before on the menu and it was amazing... baklava with pistachio ice cream, apricots, and figs, with whipped cream. WOW!!

    The food was really great! We had hommus and fafel for appetizer, and I had a pizza and husband had pasta for dinner. The only thing that was AWFUL was the kids meals. Both of my kids got pasta with butter and it was not really edible. I found that odd because everything else was soooo good but the pasta was over cooked and glue-like and there was way too much butter and zero salt. Next time I would have them order a kid's pizza! Everything else was great, however, and we will absolutely go back!

    Sorry for the bad title. This place is phenomenal. Great ambiance, amazing staff and food that will make you want to slap your momma (please do not attempt anything you read in this review at home). Seriously though, we have been to this place a half dozen times now (why do people say that and not 6?) and the best thing is not the trifecta of greatness (service, ambiance and food) but how incredibly consistent they present all three. At some places you catch the staff on a bad day, sometimes they are really busy, sometimes the place gets hit by a whirl wind, sometimes the chef is having a bad day. Having been 6 times at various times and days, never once have they not been...well....momma's everywhere: run for the hills.

    Great unique range of food - greek, Mediterranean - nice portions. It was late so we shared the sampler starter which is 4 types of greek spreads and pita bread then we shared Moussaka which made for a perfect late night dinner for two. Their cocktails are awesome - really unique stuff. Only thing is if you go in on a busy night where the bar is busy too, it gets loud. So if you're looking for a quiet place where you don't strain to hear your date talking, hmm be careful on Thursday - Saturday night's - just the nature of the place, they can't help it, they are popular in the neighborhood and very convenient if you live near Prov Rd/485 or south into Union County on Providence Rd.

    We love Ilios Noche's food and atmosphere but for $11/glass of wine, I expected more than 5 small baby sips. The glass wasn't even 1/4 full and I probably had a look on my face when it was brought to us. I thought maybe they would add more because they were keeping it chilled but joke was on us. $22 for 2 "glasses" of wine - never again. I'll pass and use the money elsewhere!

    There was a group standing beside our table talking loudly and oddly looking our direction. Two of them were the owner and a manager. Maybe circulate to your guests rather than stand there with your hands in your hips. Another was a man dressed in a Brazil soccer shirt -who sang in the band. We all couldn't hear each other because of the live music, but then you add them and that was all rather distracting. This was our first time in a while. Our friends dine at your Park Rd location quite often. The food was good. However FYI we never received our shrimp app but for some reason we received a 4 dip dish. It was good.The octopus and zucchini chips were delicious. All of our entrees were good as well.We will be back,we know where to sit now.

    Visiting relatives in Charlotte and someone recommended this spot. Our in-laws had not been there and it sounded good. It was outstanding! Had calamari and lamb chops for appetizers (excellent). We had different entrees that were wonderful (scallops, mahi-mahi, salmon and lamb chops). Had side orders of greek potatoes which might have been my favorite and risotto .... all tremendous. The food is out of this world. Our server, Alexandra, made it a really great experience. Only hesitation is that it was REALLY noisy and hard to hold a conversation. We were near the back away from the bar where we thought it would be quieter, but there were a few families with children which raised the sound level. Loved it..will be back on next visit.

    We were celebrating a 65th birthday as well as Father's Day with reservations for 5. The table wasn't ready when we arrived, but was only a short 5 minute wait. We were greeted by our server who promptly brought an appetizer sampler for our troubles and was very accommodating regarding our drink requests. He didn't have something my father had ordered, so he sent another employee to the local grocery store. From the moment we sat down, we were treated like the only table in the place. Special care and attention were paid throughout the entire meal, recommendations were perfect and the full experience was one that was priceless! Our extreme compliments to the chef and the staff. LOVE this little gem and the folks who make it so amazing.

    This place has moved to the top of our favorites in south Charlotte. The Mediterranean themed menu does not have a bad item on it. The lamb dishes are our favorite but the chicken and beef are fantastic. We often make a meal of the varied appetizers. The food is hands down the best in town. Staff always greets with a smile and their service is refreshing. Highly recommend Ilios Noche for any occasion !

    We have eaten at Ilios Noche many times. We are always pleased and Saturday night was no different. The zucchini chip were the perfect start for everyone to share. My husband had the scallops (which I tasted of course) and they were buttery. The couple we were with loved their meal as there was nothing left on their plates. Oh, get the red quinoa salad - it is incredible! Dessert was shared - berries with balsamic dressing topped with basil ice cream. Great way to end a great meal.

    We took a couple of friends here from out of town. We had some great appetizers including the pork ribs. Highly recommend them! We all go pasta for dinner and it was also excellent. My only issue on this visit was that the menu and the beer list were still the Fall/Winter menu and were in the process of being updated. One of my friends had to order 3 different beers before they finally had one in stock.

    We have eaten at Ilios Noche on Providence multiple times and brought our friends with us. The appetizers were great. We ordered calamari which was cooked perfectly, the olives and almonds and hummus. They were fabulous. For our main courses we ordered lamb in a rap and the salmon. Each was done perfectly. Order their hand cut fries-they are also spectacular. We did not stay for dessert this time, but in the fast we have enjoyed it. It is a happening place so if you are looking for quiet this is not a place I would go.
