Good service, good food. Lamb shank and risotto were both cooked well, both delicious. Oh and the appetizer sampler with all the Greek snacks you could want was a great pick. Also, didn't know they had Indian food, look forward to going back to try it.

The food was fantastic. We enjoyed lamb shank, fisherman's stew, and flat iron steak. The waiter was very friendly, but the service overall was a bit slow. it was probably due to the fact that we were there on a Saturday night.

Worth the drive from the west side
This was our third time dining at the Mad Greek and must say they are consistently above average on the food quality and quantity and the service continues to be just average. It took the waitress almost 20 minutes after we sat down to get our drink orders and for sure we missed getting a warm greeting from her. In fairness she did have a good number of tables going and did eventually warm up but to me it's first impressions that count. You MUST try the saganaki, it's worth every bite and great for sharing with your table. Beware the portion sizes are huge, we had enough for another dinner when we were done eating.

The waiter we had that night
The waiter we had that night was definitely one of the very best we've ever had anywhere. He was very helpful, cheerful and polite. He really seemed to enjoy his job. The food was excellent Greek cuisine. We thought it a bit odd that the restaurant charged extra for pita bread on the side. No rolls came with our salads or dinner. Knowing that many people waste food I don't blame them for charging; it just seemed strange. We were not advised that it would cost extra when we asked for some bread.
All in all, it was a very enjoyable meal.

I will return here because we loved the food and excellent service! The mezzo sampler was delicious and and ample...we had to take half of our entrees home! The gyro platter with roasted red potatoes and vegetables was awesome as was my chicken souvlaki. Both were still delicious the next day. They also have a creative list of martinis, I tried the fig which was very tasty.

We both purchased items off
We both purchased items off the Indian portion of the menu, and they were delicious -- vegetable coconut curries. The serving sizes are generous. The service is excellent -- our waitress was very friendly, and the other staff greeted us warmly as we arrived and left.

Not too busy for Mothers Day
Not too busy for Mothers Day lunch; probably didn't need a reservation. Host was indifferent, but server was friendly. Food was excellent Good variety on the menu including many vegetarian options.

This was a great location for our special event. It was quiet so that everyone had a chance to talk during dinner. We were on the early side for dinner which might have been the reason but regardless it was a lovely time with great food. We also liked the many options available. The only down side was that the service was slow. Not sure how this would be if the restaurant was busy. A place worth spending the time and money on. Great dining experience.

I spent ten days in Greece many years ago, and my fondest memory was the food. The food at Mad Greek was as good as you will get to Greek food in the United States. Those who accompanied me to the restaurant had never eaten Greek food, and all left raving about our meals and trying to figure out when we might have an opportunity to visit the restaurant again.

Some Like It Hot
An old standby favorite, the Mad Greek is one of the few restaurants in Cleveland where, if you ask for hot (spicy) fare, that's what you get. Great Indian and Greek food. It's always hard to decide which cuisine we're going to have today.

Dont be deceived by the dated entry
The food at The Mad Greek was fantastic. Service was somewhat slow, but not to the point where it became a problem. However the food more than makes up for it.

The Mad Greek is Cleveland/Shaker
The Mad Greek is Cleveland/Shaker Heights gem. The service and food is always great! Try the Salmon Santorini and the Indian sampler appetizer. The chocolate soufflé and ice cream is excellent!

Glad we tried it again
After our last 2 really bad experiences (food and service) we decided to try once again. We were pleased that the food was excellent--back to their old standards when Loki was there.

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!

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.
