The Gem of Greek Town!
Greek Town has another gem with Pegasus Restaurant and Taverna! Some of the other dining spots seem outdated next to Pegasus with its fresh approach to Greek food favorites. This place doesn't ride on its reputation, it creates exciting and delicious experiences every time we visit.

This is the fourth time my
This is the fourth time my wife and I have been to Pegasus in the last 3 years, by ourselves or with family. The list of unusual appetizers is quite long, the ones we've had have been very flavorful. My favorite entree is the gilled rib lamb chops, spiced just right with Greek herbs. For dessert (if you ave any room left) the galaktoburiko is unbelievable.

We had a wonderful time -
We had a wonderful time - our waitress was hilarious and the food was delicious. There were 6 of us so we tried and shared lots of things. The place was packed but our Open Table ressie was honored immediately. We all would definitely go back.

Go to Pegasus!
It was our first time at Pegasus. We went early on a Saturday and it was already busy. We started with a spanakopita appetizer -- excellent. As other reviewers have mentioned, the bread is very good. We tried 3 different entrees and all were delicious. Prices were good and the service was great. Of course we had to have some baklava for dessert and it was some of the best we've had. We'll definitely be back. Even though there's a parking lot across the street, the free valet was handy and of course, less money!

I brought a group of 9 people from out of town who were in for a convention. Most had not eaten in a Greek reseturant before. They really enjoyed the food. The atmosphere was very condusive to lively conversation. Everyone had a good time and really enjoyed the food. The service was attentive but they gave us time and space to enjoy ourselves and to never feel rushed.
I've eaten in many of the resturants in Greek town and found this to on par with the other without the abrupt waiters and the often rush to turn the table.

Everything was wonderful,
Everything was wonderful, except all of the food not coming out together. We were a party of six, one meal didn't come out till the others were almost finished.. Guest was not happy.

Great dining experience
As always Pegasus has never let me down with great food and great service. Some restaurants like a dark atmosphere but Pegasus feels like you are outside having a great meal in a courtyard. My family loved everything they ate. Lamb shank, combination plates, pork chops and Pastitsio were outstanding. I will always return to this gem!

Terrific Greek restaurant!
Food is very good, prices are reasonable, and the service is outstanding. Ask for Niko, he was awesome. After the obligatory Saganaki appetizer, Niko recommended some dishes for us, seafood for my wife, and a lamb meatball dish for me. My daughter got the Pastitsio, baclava for dessert, and all was very good, very authentic. It was amazingly quiet, so conversation was comfortable, also. Highly recommended.

Enjoy a Mythical Meal at Pegasus!
When I started working at UIC a couple months ago, a neighbor (who is 100% Greek) told me that her favorite Greektown restaurant was Pegasus, so I went there with a friend for dinner. My experience was such that I felt compelled to return to Pegasus for lunch on Mother's Day when my parents and my boyfriend's mother were in from Ohio. Excellent food. Wonderful service. Bright, chipper atmosphere. Perfect for our group of five. You'll find all the traditional Greek specialties, plus some extra-special ones, on the menu at this fantastic Greektown destination. Did I mention the service? I guess I did. Well, it was that good. ;)

Fantastic! Highly Recommended
My wife and I are both of Greek descent. The food was as good as our Mothers and Grandmothers would prepare at home. The atmosphere is very pleasant and airy. Our server, Diogenes, provided stellar service to further complement what was an excellent dining experience. We will definitely return the next time we visit Chicago.

Have eaten at this restaurant numerous times and it doesn't disappoint. My favorite item is the grilled calamari!

Greek gem in the the West Loop
After driving past the Pegasus for several years, we finally made a reservation for dinner. Now we're wishing that we had done it years ago! Hospitality was wonderful along with the food and setting. The menu had a broad range from the traditional classics to a contemporary mix sure to please a range of tastes. On a nice day, the roof top deck would yield a spectacular view of the city skyline but the main dining room also had huge windows that opened to take in the nice weather. Definitely worth a visit.

One of the best Greek places I have eaten at. A much larger & diverse menu than average. Food was well prepared and ingredients fresh

Classic Greek with a rooftop view!
Located in Greek town, this place makes some really, really good greek food. In Greek town, where the competition is fierce. Prices are extremely reasonable (dinner for 6 with wine - $250). Great dolmadakia, moussaka, avgolemono soup, kebabs, etc. The Saganaki cheese appetizer (served flaming with a hearty "opa" is killer). Do yourself a favor - in between dropping $100 a head at Harry Careys and Mortons and Rosebud, check this place out for a change of pace. You'll love it. Ask for Maria - and on a warm summer night there is always a breeze and a view on the rooftop. Enjoy!

The food here was delicious in a clean atmosphere. Would definitely go back and try the outdoor seating when its nicer.
6/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
nice place for a conversation and different view of city from the rooftop. The Tapas like menu was very good. Beer wasn't cold though.

Went for my birthday for a big group and it was great. The food was great. Appetizers were delicious, including the grilled octopus which was very well done. Our waiter, Chris, was hilarious and very welcoming. We brought our own cake which I thought would be a bit frowned upon but they happily served it for us. Great experience overall!

Greek Town Gem!
I brought my parent's, in-laws and several other family members to Pegasus on a Sunday night. Unfortunately, it was raining so we were unable to sit on the rooftop deck, but the indoor restaurant experience was a wonderful one. Our server was phenomenal, very knowledgeable about the menu, super friendly and made my "new to Greek food" in-laws feel very comfortable. The lamb chops were cooked perfectly as well as the squid and octopus. All around, it was a really great dining experience!

In the sea of restaurants in Greektown, we decided to try Pegasus after going to their well-known competitor across the street in the past. We had an amazing evening! We wanted to head to the roof for outdoor dining, but changed out mind when we heard it was tapas style upstairs.....we were in the mood for dinner. Boy was it a great evening! Our waiter Nikko was excellent. It was a well timed dinner and he was very attentive. From appetizer to dessert the food was excellent. Our new go-to Greek restaurant in Greektown.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Came here with 5 friends to do their tapas menu on the roof (unfortunately you can't make reservations on the roof but thanks to Open Table I was able to secure an inside table just in case). We had 2 bottles of wine, beers, and enough food to leave full, and each of us only paid $30, including a 20% tip! I cannot believe how great of a deal that is! Our server was able to suggest wines imported from Greece to keep our evening authentic and the small plates were a perfect way to get our fill of all the Greek foods we love. Their roof is now closed but next year I will be a frequent patron at that price!

Make a special occasion unique
We dined here to celebrate two family members' Birthdays and were not disappointed. The rooftop area offered a fabulous view of the city and the music added to the ambiance. The food was delicious and the small plates were creatively assembled. There was a delicious and varied assortment of desserts to choose from. The wait staff was attentive and entertaining. It was reasonably priced but the drinks we ordered added significantly to the bill so, buyer beware. A good time was had by all and a great memory was made!

I'm taking a culture class for college and I went to this place after visiting the museum In Greektown. Had an amazing time! The food was tasty, the service was amazing, the wine was delicious, and the energy was friendly and cozy. It felt like I was invited to someone's home. The prices were higher than expected but the decor made up for the semi-expensive prices! The neighborhood was peaceful but full of life at the same time. Definitely look forward to going back!

Great food with interesting cocktails. Really enjoyed the lamb and my fiancé got the gyros platter. Everything was wonderful!

Out of Town Guests Evening
We decided to show our guests a bit of Greektown in Chicago and they loved it. We decided to order all appetizers and salad rather than dinners so they could taste lots of different things. It was definitely the way to go as everything disappeared off the plates! We had the Horiatiki salad, spannikopita, dolmades, smelt, saganaki, grilled octopus, gyros, and a Greek red and a Greek white wine, suggested by our server. She was very helpful and the wait staff was very attentive. We were greeted by the manager, I believe, and he came over to check how we were doing.
When the warm weather returns, I would recommend the rooftop for appetizers and drinks with friends!

Excellent service, we went before the Blackhawks game. Food was delicious and the waiter was very helpful and attentive

A New Favorite
We had friends relocate to Chicago and met them there for dinner. It was the first time at Pegasus for all of us. I was impressed by the hospitality when we first walked in and it just got better and better as the evening progressed. The food was amazing. You don't find skate wing offered on many menus and I was thrilled to see they had it. AMAZING; prepared to perfection as was everything else.

Great Service and Great Food
We went for dinner this past Saturday and had a wonderful time. Will definitely be back. My only complaint is that I felt a bit rushed and our reservation was at 8 and we were done by 9:30 so it wasn't as if we were lingering guests....

Wonderful food and service
Our meals were excellent.....fabulous village salad followed by spanakopita and jumbo shrimp and vegetables that were perfectly grilled. Service was excellent but not intrusive - our server was knowledgable and friendly. It was a great experience.

Best waiter in Greek Town
Had not been to Greek Town in a long time...Pegasus will bring us back in the near future. Our food was exceptional...but our waiter made the dining experience. He was jubilant...helpful...and put us in a holiday mood before the Holiday Concert we were attending. Could not have had a nicer dining experience that evening.
