Good Greek foodThis is a wonderful place for great Greek food, in a pretty setting. Always beautiful fresh flowers!5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food less excellent priceWe come to Ithaki regularly and were dismayed to encounter considerably higher prices since our last visit two months ago. The food was delicious as always, but we will now only come on a very special occasion.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMoverall a great day becauseoverall a great day because of a great dining experience which includes the wait staff they were very attentive and friendly to me that was most important...5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMComfortable diningThe atmosphere was great.

Service was great, waitress was helpful, friendly and knowledgeable.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMI was pleased to see a varietyI was pleased to see a variety of fish choices for those of us who no longer eat red meat. Our reception and service was very gracious and pleasant and the restaurant has a welcoming atmosphere. We find that the menu is more sophisticated from the last time we came several years ago. There's a message at the bottom of the menu to please turn off cell phone- we very much appreciate this ! Dining should be about the meal- not distractions; our meal was delicious, even though we ordered too much food for two people.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMLadies night outThis was our ladies bridge night out, there were 7 of us. Food delicious, able to accommodate, with knowledge, a diner with Celiac's.
Waitress friendly, as a quick with service as possible with 7, gave us all a nice time to chat between courses.
We were at a rectangle table, would be nice if they could have round tables for larger parties. there was an oval that they offered, which is for 6, so would have been a bit crowded with drinks and food5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways goodI try to get to Itacki several times a year. It's new layout is attractive, particularly the bar seating area. The food and service were great as usual.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMIthakiIthaki came recommended by my MIL. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and had a comfortable noise level where my husband and I could easily talk to each other. Our waitress was knowledgeable about the food and was even able to offer a wine suggestion as we did not recognize several of the Greek varieties. Our food came out quickly, was beautifully presented and tasted delicious. The olive tampenade and fresh bread were a wonderful starter (I could have eaten it all night!) and the waitstaff were polite and efficient, offering more water when our cups were low and clearing plates and utensils after each course quickly, quietly and with a smile. Overall a very nice place to dine and we will not only go back, but recommend it to others.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMIthaki is a great spot. There'sIthaki is a great spot. There's the dining room for special occasions. The newer bar area (where there's table seating)is humming and perfect for all other times. We're lucky to have this wonderful neighborhood place here in Ipswich with its consistently good Greek food and attentive service.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat GreekEsp. for a Greek/Mediterranean restaurant this strikes a nice balance between casual and upscale. I thought the food was wonderful and fresh, and while not inexpensive, it seemed worth the price for a nice post-concert experience. It's plenty spacious, as well, tho' I imagine in the summertime it fills up. We (two of us) came for an early dinner and had a mixed greens salad, the stuffed grape leaves appetizer, the feta, mushroom & feta-stuffed chicken breast, and lamb kabobs, and pistachio baklava with pistachio ice cream for dessert, and all were flavorful but not overseasoned. Very enjoyable.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a treat to eat here;Always a treat to eat here; great Greek food, an all-around wonderful dining experience.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good food.

Save room for desert!4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMtop notchEverything was delicious and the service was top notch. We had the salmon and pork souvlaki special and they were both excellent. The service was great from the moment we walked in, we were 20 minutes early and they accommodated us without skipping a beat. This is a great place to have a great dinning experience, we loved it. We will come again soon.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMIthaki is beautifully decoratedIthaki is beautifully decorated with the perfect combination of warmth and chic. It is both cosy and light. The entire staff was friendly and welcoming. Our server Chris was fantastic. He was always close by and accessible. The food was excellent and cooked perfectly. I would highly recommend this restaurant for either a special occassion or anytime, depending on your dining budget. It was more expensive than anticipated from the information on this site. Two people, two drinks each, one appetizer, two entrees, and one dessert was $170 inluding tax and gratuity. It was a wonderful dining experience but not one my budget can manage as often as I would like!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMFood is fantistic, but theFood is fantistic, but the owner seems a bit gruff3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMFour of us enjoyed a deliciousFour of us enjoyed a delicious lunch at Ithaki amidst the beautiful flower arranged by the owner, Petros. He also came by to make sure all was perfect at our table. Luncheon is served in the bar area, and is bright and airy. There were specials of the day in addition to the regular, albeit somewhat limited, menu. Two of us had the salmon special and devoured each bit. The fish sandwich was perfectly prepared, and the Grek salad and mussels were enjoyed by the fourth person. Do not hesitate to go to Ithaki - its always delicious and pleasant.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWoonderful upscale resturauntWoonderful upscale resturaunt in Ipswich - good food, wine, service3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently wonderful!Consistently excellent food and service. Described as modern Mediterranean, but essentially Greek, but very upscale Greek. Have eaten here several times and it is always enjoyable. You won't be disappointed going to Ithaki.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe ate in the bar area whichWe ate in the bar area which we would prefer over dining room for a more standard night out as both menus are available in the bar. Nice tables there made it enjoyable as an alternative to just the bar seating dining room offered a more "date night" setting. Food was great- we tried 2 lamb dishes and grape leaves appetizer . Will definitely come back multiple times! Waitress was very attentive, helpful with menu suggestions, and pleasant. Their online booking system is a plus. Very much worth the drive!!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMA gemThough the name is Greek, this isn't simply your standard Greek fare. The cuisine is imaginative and beautifully prepared. We went up on a Friday night, and the weekly specials were just newly presented to the wait staff, so our server could speak with enthusiasm about all the specials. Were it possible, we would have tried everything, but there was only the two of us. We shared a tuna appetizer to start and one of us had the sirloin and the other a cod with truffled pea risotto. Everything was truly outstanding. We came away from our experience determined to come back, even though this restaurant is not near to us.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic food! BeautifulFantastic food!
