Diner Reviews
  • "Ithaki is a little out of our way, but well worth the trip. My husband and I both had seafood entrees which were perfectly cooked and deliciously prepared; we chose a great wine from the generous selection. We appreciate that the bar is separated from the main dining room- in some other restaurants, the noise from a bar can be overwhelming. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience and plan to return."

  • "We arrived around 4:45PM and sat in the bar area; it was very comfortable and quiet until well after 6:30PM. The service was excellent; our waitress non-intrusive but on the ball. Our food was excellent. I had the swordfish special and my friend had the salmon entree. I was pleasantly surprised that Ithaki could accommodate a gluten free diet such as mine. All in all, this was a great place to take my friend from Boston and to have some time with her over a delicious meal."

  • "Consistent, terrific Greek and Mediterranean cuisine. The specials are really special - had the scallop appetizer special and it was fabulous. A real gem North of Boston."

  • "We all enjoyed a wonderful meal at Ithaki, starting with kalamari, Avgolemono soup and Greek salads. Meals were Moussaka, Halibut special, Lamb with Orzo. Desserts of Galaktoboureko and Bread Pudding were fabulous. Can't wait to come back."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Another outstanding meal! Calamari to start was quite tasty and we enjoyed the salmon and halibut special entrees. We split the limoncello cake which was light, moist and quite tatty! We'd definitely get the same meal again!"

  • "Ithaci is a north shore restaurant , located in downtown Ipswich. Food was great. Varied menu selections and moderately priced wine list. I would return again."
    Dined on 4/1/2014
  • "My friend and I each enjoyed the Moussaka for lunch, as well as a Greek salad as a starter. It is the best Greek salad we've ever had. We also took home makaronada (pasta and meat sauce), avgolemono (egg-lemon soup), skewered lamb and spanakopita (spinach pie). Delicious!"

  • "Every time we eat at Ithaki we are never disappointed with the freshness of the food and the wonderful presentation! I had the Halibut the other night and it was cooked to perfection -- flaky, moist and beautifully presented with the vegetables and fingerling potatoes. The salads are also amazing - my favorite is the beet salad. I also like that they don't rush you and are attentive without being overbearing. It's a bit expensive, but well worth it if you appreciate good, fresh food!"

  • "Tried this restaurant on a whim on a Saturday night. We had the grape leaves which were packed with flavor, the octopus that was cooked perfectly and was very tender. The fried cheese dish was terrific. The presentation was unexpected. They light it on fire at your table. It creates these beautifully charred ends. We also had the moussaka which was great. It has a lot of things packed into it but they work together well (and it's not too heavy)."

  • "Highly recommend Ithaki for consistently good food, and good service. One of the only restaurants in the area where the cost of the meal is equal to the quality of the food. A must go!"

  • "Moussaka was different with potatoes but tasty, Greek salad was also different than usual with green peppers but delicious. Others enjoyed their gyros and bread with the spread was wonderful."

  • "Normally a group of ten dominates the service priorities, to the annoyance of those smaller table waiting for service. This was not our experience, indeed just to get the wine order and bring the wine took around 25 mn. Taking our dinner order also took unusually long. I would not recommend this restaurant for large groups."

  • "Went to dinner on the 15th of March with 2 other couples. One was Greek decent. he ordered for us, which was a plus since none of us have ever had Greek food. Was a little disappointed wanted Lamb chops and there were none on the menu. Food was ok Not sure I would go back very expensive night"

  • "The food and inside the establishment were nicely decorated. Yes, the food is somewhat expensive, however both the fresh and organic food lives up to its billing. Food was presented very well and the service was great. The environment was pleasant and the seating was especially comfortable. Had a great time and would highly recommmend Ithaki to others. +Saw children as well, who seemed to be very comfortable in a formal setting, which is not always the case in many other restaurants."

  • "Excellent place only problem is I thought I was Eating in at art gallery. Every painting had a price tag. I think a restaurant shouldn't do this. Eather server awesome like they do Or become an art gallery. We loved the place it's just tackey to see painting in a restaurant With prices on it. We will go back"

  • "Unfortunately before we could enjoy food I was disappointed. Waitress did not even show face until 15 minutes and then our drink order took another 15 mins. YES...we had our water refilled before we even had our drinks. lamb kabobs good...cooked to order but the pork kabobs tough to cut and dry. disappointed for the money.."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "We went on a recommendation of someone we know....and were not disappointed! The only issue would be that they were out of the mea that I ordered, and the server did not inform us of this until I tried to order it. Other than that, everything was very good! We will return."

  • "Always great food. This is our go to restaurant on the North Shore. Yummy, great service, and always consistant. You can count on a wonderful meal."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "Excellent food, wonderful service and a cozy window table made for a seemingly perfect night until eight single women and an infant arrived and were seated directly next to us. They were loud, inconsiderate, and intent on being noticed by all around. Unfortunately, the restaurant lacks the space to put larger parties like this in a more remote location so as not to overwhelm other guests. However, as somewhat frequent visitors to Ithaki, we will return again because the good outweighs the bad at this "neighborhood gem!""

  • "We had a wonderful birthday lunch. Thank you for popping a candle on our yummy desserts (and for not singing, ha, ha). The food was terrific. Loved the combo options with 1/2 Greek salad. We love Ithaki for lunch or dinner--especially the sunny bar side. You do all things well!"

  • "For the price, service was slow. Took a long time for dinner. Lamb was ok. The halibut was excellent. Why is the bread so hard?"
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "we always think of Ithaki first when we have a special event. Such a bonus to have moved to Ipswich and have such high quality dining experiences and a five minute ride home. Best calamari around."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "It was our first time at Ithaki and I was disappointed mainly because of the service. It took more than 10 minutes before our server came to the table, then another 10 minutes to receive our drinks. We ordered entrees and drink at the same time; The entrees were delivered 5 minutes after the cocktails. The food was good, not stellar- the medium filet was over-cooked."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "Service was great. Food was great. Definitely a meat eaters mecca, I am a vegetarian so that didn't work out so well for me. I was also very disappointed they wouldn't honor my amazon voucher. We went way out of our way to go there to utilize that voucher."

  • "This was our first visit to Itaki and will definitely not our last. I found the menu very palate friendly but a tad pricey. The quality of the food was worth the cost. A great dining experience overall."

  • "We live in Ipwich and dine here at leat twice a year. This particular evening and time, Friday at 7:00 pm, was very busy. The Host was not warm, rather stiff and mechanic. We waited about 10 minutes, we did have reservations. The noise level is always high but it appeared to be quite loud. The service was good but the food was not the best, it wasn't awful just meh, middling. The arrival of our bread, appetizers and main course was out of sync and somewhat ruined our experience. We will go back and are chalking this up to a bad night."
