  • "Koutouki's never fails to please. The food was as usual fantastic and the service was exceptional. Very friendly staff and good food. Ordered too much as usual but always good for take out!!!"

  • "The food was perfect, the service fast and polit, the only minor thing for me is we felt a bit crowded at our table. We booked ahead for a party of 8 on a Wednesday evening, and were kind of squished into a back table. Considering the restaurant was fairly quiet at that time, a little more space would have been nice (maybe we would have eaten more if there has been more room for additional plates, lol)."

  • "We haven't been to the original Koutouki since we moved to the south side several years ago and we definitely noticed the difference upon entering as the restaurant was almost empty at 6pm on a Saturday night. We had the Traditional Meze. The appetizers started off well with pita and dips as well as traditional greek salad. These all went down well and were followed up with some piping hot spanakopita. From here it went downhill as both the dolmades and keftes were very dry and flavourless and the next dish was the chicken thighs that smelled and tasted off served with rice so dry it crunched. Finally came the driest lamb I have ever had. I just couldn't eat more than half before giving in hopes of leaving for another location for dessert."

  • "This was one of my favourite eateries. However, our Valentine's dinner was not good. There was a set menu, which was fine and very plentiful. From the Greek salad, to pitas and dips, to the full "meze", there was plenty to eat. But, it tasted like it had been prepared last week. The food overall lacked flavour and the certain Greek touches that I had come to love.The rose at each table was a nice touch, but the experience did not meet the quality that Koutaki was known for. The set menu wine was not great - Ieft half a glass. I get the sense that the management/ownership of the restaurant has changed, and that the new chef did not get the original recipes."

  • "Had a good dinner. The customers I had taken to dinner enjoyed there meals. I found my roast lamb over cooked but the rest of the meal was excellent."

  • "My friend and I were very disappointed tonight. The place was not very crowded when we came in, we now know why. Started off with two appetizers. Keftedes and dolmades. The keftedes were dry, they fell apart when you stuck your fork in them, and they were bland and tasteless. However, I ordered the rack of lamb, and my friend ordered the file. Both were poorly prepared, lacked proper seasoning, and were bland. The lamb was particularly dry. I naively thought that they couldn't screw up the candies with the bill -- damp and mushy!!!! We were very disappointed overall, it was an unappetising meal that was also overpriced. Never coming back. If it were not for the friendly waitress and good service, my review would have gotten one star."

  • "Six of us got together for dinner on a Saturday night and while the ambience was in keeping with the vibe of the restaurant, the high light being the belly dancer the food was just ok. We ordered group feast ($38.00 per person) at the recommendation of our server (who was awesome) but in spite of the notable volume of food the taste was just average. Not bad, just average."

  • "The food is decent, not great. The price is outrageous considering the ambience! It's like a run down dive. The place was dead. They had a belly dancer, which was cool- but felt really awkward since we were the only people in the place. Plus- they charged our designated driver for refills of pop. Needless to say, we will not be returning."

  • "My husband had the rack of lamb which was so tender, it fell off the bone. Truly outstanding. We found the portion sizes to be very generous. Love the atmosphere and decor of the restaurant."

  • "This restaurant was recommended to us by a friend. The appetizers were hot and delicious. The entrees were wonderful and plentiful and the desserts - well totally scrumptious. I can't say enough about the wonderful waitress. She was informative and made great suggestions. Great sense of humour. I will go back again and again"

  • "This is an unassuming restaurant in two locations in Edmonton. The restaurant might be mistaken for a tavern by a casual observer. Inside the experience seems to be genuinely greek in nature. The food is good - we shared the courses for one price per person. The food is almost always great; we were a little disappointed in the lamb this visit. The service was speedy, welcoming and not at all obtrusive. My one criticism would be that the noise level in the building gets high as it fills and the level of the background music does not discourage the volume."
