Diner Reviews
  • "Ran out of characters to leave proper review. Lived in GR. have eaten in many GR rest in US. This is by far the worst. Cold saganaki even after lit. Too much garlic and dill in tzadziki. Chicken souvlaki poor not Greek spices. Wet pita. Fries not as advertised. Baked fried tons of salt. Overpriced poor quality. Wife had strir fry 16$ Box uncle bens rice and $2 worth of veggies zero flavor. An embarrassment of a Greek restaurant."

  • "I hadn't been here since I lived in Cleveland over 20 years ago. The Mad Greek was one of my favorite restaurants back then and I was very happy to see that nothing has changed. The menu is pretty much identical and the quality of food as always was superb."

  • "I had dined at The Mad Greek many years ago. I used to travel a lot on business and would get my fix for Greek food in Chicago. Since I dont travel as much for work, I have been wanting a Greek "fix". I had an entertainment coupon and convinced my wife to take the ride to Cleveland Hts. Appetizer - Dolomades was wrapped nice and tight with a beautiful presentation topped with an tasty sauce that had a slightly sweet finish. The Mousaka I enjoyed was cooked well with no crusty edges. The eggplant was not mushy like you will often find in mousaka. The wife's kaserri stuffed chick was cooked to perfection. Juicy, tender and flavorful.This was the first time in years, that my wife looked at me after dinner and said When can we come back?"

  • "This place was amazing, we took my husbands parents here for dinner. The food was absolutely amazing. Everything was fresh and hot when it was served. The service was fantastic, our drinks were always full and she kept our table spotless. I have nothing but good things to say about this place. I will definitely return!"

  • "The menu is great- a blend of Greek and Indian food. They have both a Greek and Indian sampler appetizer which I highly recommend- especially if you are unfamiliar with these types of food. The drinks are pricey- be forewarned. We had a Groupon so all of our food- 2 appetizers, 4 salads, 4 entrees and 2 desserts were paid for. We had a total of 7 alcoholic beverages and our bill was almost 80 dollars. Without the groupon it would have been well over 200. I really like the food because it is hard to find well made Greek food around here, but for the same price we could have gone across the street to Nighttown and had a better meal with WAY better service. While polite our server was so slow. Spicy food + empty water glasses = bad."

  • "We were very disappointed with The Mad Greek. We sat and waited at least 10 minutes before our server even acknowledged us. I found him to be unfriendly and felt we were burdening him by our presence and questions. I was brought a half filled wine glass instead of the martini glass you would expect a martini to be served in. I was told they ran out of martini glasses. The restaurant wasn't even close to half full and I looked in the bar area before walking in and it wasn't full there either. It was foul tasting and way over proved, especially for the amount I was given. The salads and appetizers were ok but our dinners were bland and the servings were pretty small. I would definitely not recommend this place to anyone."

  • "While dining at the Mad Greek, we tried several of the appetizers, and were absolutely DELICIOUS! Dinner entrees were just as amazing. Will definitely be going back! Only problem is the restaurant's location. The area is very confusing."

  • "6 friends met for dinner and conversation and were pleased overall. Service was slow at the beginning and waitress got a couple things confused. Food was well-prepared and reasonably priced. Wine prices were high relarive to food prices."

  • "We had a reservation for 6 and our table was waiting when we arrived. Our waiter was very friendly, very helpful with suggestions, and very attentive. We ordered two appetizers for the table - the coconut shrimp and the vegetarian sampler. Everything was delicious. Nice and hot and very tasty. We all had something different for our dinners and everyone was raving about their choices. We had a couple bottles of wine which was very moderately priced yet delicious. We really had a great time and would recommend this to our friends and family."

  • "It has been almost 25 years since I left and returned to Cleveland. I enjoyed going to the Mad Greek weekly when I was at the Cleveland Clinic. It was great to see that the food and service is still excellent."

  • "The food here was amazing. I try to eat healthy when I go out and this place had a lot to choose from. Our waitress was wonderful! She took very good care of us although I felt bad for her because she had to continuously go up and down steps all night long. I ordered an Indian dish where you pick the amount of spicy ness. I was told that a 1 was mild and a 7 is fiery very hot. I chose a 4 but it wasn't spicy at all so if you like spicy ness go for a 6! But overall, I highly recommend this place."

  • "We were In from out of town and randomly picked the Mad Greek looking for some authentic Greek food and I'm happy to report they did not disappoint! First, you better be hungry, the portions are enormous, if you leave there hungry it's your own fault! Wine selection was limited but excellent choices...great service. Will definitely be back next time we are in Cleveland."

  • "I love the options at the Mad Greek. It's always hard to decide between Indian and Greek - there are so many things to try. The food is always wonderful too. My only complaint is that the portions are a bit small for the price - never any leftovers. They could work on their wine list as well."
    Dined on 11/23/2013
  • "Although this restaurant is somewhat pricey, The Mad Greek has outstanding food. The value is reasonable if a coupon is used, especially since the amount of food that served leaves enough for leftovers. Be careful with the Baklava Ice Cream, as it is dangerously delicious and not quite as healthy as other menu options!"

  • "My husband and I try to frequent only independent resturants and have always enjoyed the character of Mad Greek. Love sitting in the bar when the outside wall is open and you can people watch!"

  • "Menu was reasonably priced, but I was not overly impressed with its quality. Food did not taste authentic, but did seem to be made from scratch.Worth a try, but not a keeper."
