The decor was definitely lacking
The decor was definitely lacking and the booth I sat in was missing springs and cushion, but the food was excellent. Our server was fabulous and was knowledgeable about the menu items. The locations is great, and I would definitely eat there again...maybe just not in a booth.

Our dinner was fabulous and
Our dinner was fabulous and our waiter was very well informed. The mousaka is a must have. Wine corkage is $10 which is fine but a little on the high side. I would suggest $7 or $8. The menu had lots of choices and for two women we shared a couple of appetizers and then the mousaka. Just perfect.

I't's Greek to Me
I have been to Aristo's various times over the last few years. It is consistently good. Wonderful wait staff is a big plus.. Really good casual ambiance and--if course--the food is top drawer. I am a big fan of Greek food and the braised lamb shank with orzo is the signature dish. The appetizers I've had are all a good start. I would readily recommend Aristo's to people who enjoy quality food at reasonable prices.

We had an excellent meal. The food was delicious and the service was great. We had the Orektika, a wonderful platter of different meats. The fried cheese and the pasta with mizithra cheese. All were OUTSTANDING. It was our first time there and we will definitely be back.

The BEST Greek food in the state...
Sure, you may try those great hamburger joints ...sure you've had huge breakfasts and been to the festival....but if you want authentic Greek food (no pastrami!) prepared like it is back home....served in ambiance that feels like an outdoor cafe in Athens or Chania....try this place! You will not be disappointed!! By the way....be bold and try the grilled octopus! Squeeze some lemon juice and dip your bread in the olive oil/oregano/grilled octopus/lemon juices and take a bite of the grilled tentacles - you will be in Aegean heaven!

First we made reservations and it was easy and they even seated us a little early(mid-week). We had great service and great food. The hummus sampler was loved by all at the table. We purchased a few different large orders and then shared them around. They brought us extra plates to do this. This I feel is unique in a restaurant, they usually get upset if you don't order one entrée per person.
Second, Wow! That was my first thought as I tasted the lamb shank. I don't get lamb that often as not many people can cook it well, but it was recommended by a friend who had been before. It was fantastic. Juicy and tender, like nothing I have had before.
If you like greek you will love Aristos. If you want to try greek, you may never go anywhere else.

Almost a Five star experience
I absolutely loved everything about Aristo's. We brought my sister there for her 21st birthday and she was thrilled. The food was amazing and perfectly cooked, the staff was attentive and really tried to make our experience top-notch, and the wine list was great and had something to pair with any food. My one complaint is that it began to rain, and so a family came to sit next to us and they had brought their dog. I don't feel that pets have any place in restaurants, let alone one with the caliber of Aristo's.

Great little neighborhood restaraunt. Good food and great service.
5/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
A good relaxing greek meal. The small plates were excellent, especially the hummus. The chicken dish scored very well as did the halibut. Very tasty.
5/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
My group really enjoyed the food! It was delicious. They were all unfamiliar with Greek food, but everyone enjoyed everything they got!
5/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good food at reasonable prices.
The food is tasty and creative, and th e portion sizes are decent. The wine list is small but fairly priced and has some interesting Greek wines. Imam Baldi and hummus recommended. A warning regarding the octopus -it is not sliced rings and tentacles but little whole pink octopi. Live music on Thursdays too.

Can't go wrong
Portions were generous and everything we ordered delicious. Large menu includes most traditional Greek dishes. Was disappointed the saganaki wasn't flamed at the table. Has to be something up with OSHA or their liability coverage as all was authentic otherwiswe.
5/31/2013 4:00:00 PM
Nice outdoor seating available, and a good variety of menu items. Delicious flavor on all the dishes we sampled.
There are lots of Greek and Med places in the SLC area, but most are counter, or walk up order.
This is a nice full service restaraunt and full bar. The lamb chops were fantastic, but so was the chicken, and Appetizer.
6/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfect outdoor choice
Super knowledgeable staff made ordering simple. We are restaurant owners and can be very picky but everything was really perfect. The menu covered all the classics and mixing appetizers with a salad could be a great choice. Not a large wine and cocktail menu but definitely adequate. We will be back!
6/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Aristo's was fabulous! The hummus was to die for & the lamb melted in my mouth! The roasted potatoes were a nice alternative to fries. Next time I'll save room for desert!
6/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Love this place! Excellent hummus, lamb to dye for and lovely setting!

Good Food, Great Patio
We've been eating at Aristos for years, I love to go for lunch and get the Gyro. Their greek salad is also very yummy...

Gyros and a Lot More
Aristo's has a large menu with the Greek staples that one would expect plus a lot of unexpected items as well. Everything I have ordered there has been great, and the service is attentive and friendly.

We went to Aristos to celebrate
We went to Aristos to celebrate two birthdays. the age range was 40 to 84 we were able to fine something that everyone was happy with. We don't drink so didn't use the bar but was very happy with the food. Dessert was great. service was good.

Great Greek Food!
This is Greek food at its best! Try the hummus, tzatziki and other spreads as appetizers or small plates - delicious. The pitta bread is both fresh and authentic. Our entrees were delicious. The portions are large, so if you are not super-hungry then you might want to stick with the small plates. Our waiter was professional, helpful and attentive. We sat outside on an 85-degree evening and enjoyed the casual ambience. The restaurant was full of people enjoying themselves in groups of all sizes, which gave it an inviting vibration.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
My friends and I like good food but we were also looking for a place where we could sit and visit and not feel rushed. We got both at Aristo's. We had a great evening and the food was fresh and delicious and well served.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a good choice
I haven't been let down yet at Aristos. Upscale Greek food with an interesting menu. The service is good as is the ambiance. The eggplant dishes are especially good. Try the combination dips with pita and the smelt appetizer.

Delicious! Good portions. Nice atmosphere. Slightly over-priced for lamb.

Service was very good for a group this size and the food was enjoyed by all, even though most had never had Greek food before.

Amazing food and service
Our server, Sarah, was very pleasant and helpful when it came to ordering. She knew all if the items in the menu and made some great suggestions. Our food was amazing! Aristos is truly an authentic Greek restaurant. If you have not been to Aristos then you are missing out.

Best Greek I've had in SLC
There is no Greek food in Utah County, so we usually treat ourselves when we go to SLC. This is by far the best we've had. I'm still for the occasional fast food restaurant, but this is an amazing fine dining option. It is a little pricey, ranging from $10-$30 for an Entrée, but we really loved our dishes.
We got the Kalamari, Greek Salad with Gyro meat, and the Lamb Chops. For dessert we got the (tiny) baklava and a custard in phyllo dough. Everything was delicious. I told my husband that this might be in the top ten restaurants we've visited together.

Great place for a date night.
This place had great food and great service. While nothing was fantastic, this is a great place for a date night.

Aristo's is AWESOME
Tasty food, friendly staff and the owner is pretty spectacular as well...! You simply can't go wrong by dining at Aristo's! It's not only affordable, but also some of the most authentic Greek food Salt Lake City has to offer...!!
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Aristo is an excellent host who prepares fresh, high-quality Greek cuisine. The life Greek music on Thursday nights is an additional plus. Outside of his uncle's restaurant in Piraeus, Greece, this is my favorite Greek restaurant.
10/23/2013 5:00:00 PM
Excellent Greek Food
Having grown up with a Greek mother I have high standards for Greek food, and this was a lovely and authentic dining experience. They treated my family very well and everyone thought the food was delicious. We enjoyed trying the Greek wines as well as the deserts prepared in house. We will return for sure.
10/31/2013 5:00:00 PM
Good food, poor service
The food was excellent and the menu had lots of choices. However, we had to beg someone to wait on us. My dining partner got up to find the waiter to get drink refills.

Greek food delight
Our party of 2 enjoyed our meal. They were very accommodating the sharing of courses for 2 women.Noise level was high, especially for older ears!

Great pre-ballet meal
I was so disappointed to find that the first ballet of the season would be at Kingsbury Hall this year, but having our meal at Aristo's beforehand completely made up for it. Everything we ordered was fantastic. The service was impeccable, and while Aristo's feels like a nice night out, it doesn't make my kids feel uncomfortable or out-of-place.

Best Greek food in Salt Lake City
If you're looking for great authentic Greek food then this is the place. The tyropita and taramasalata was amazing.
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
Authentic, homestyle Greek
Authentic homestyle Greek food with a great variety to choose from. Being a Greek restaurant, their specialty is lamb, but I am a vegetarian and there were plenty of choices for me as well. Their trio of dips to start off with will put you in the mood for the rest of the meal! Yummy, quality food in a good setting and live Greek music on Thursday nights. This was the perfect setting for dinner before a show at Kingsbury Hall.

The food at Aristos was absolutely fabulous. Four of us had dinner there and had a fantastic time.
