We love Mediterranean food. This restaurant is a notch above the others.
Friendly service. We tried about 10 small plates, loved them all.

I often can't decide between
I often can't decide between several of my favorites on the menu. I love the Moussaka, gyro platter (with greek fries), and the Melitzanosalata (a smoky eggplant appetizer spread).

I found this restaurant at
I found this restaurant at the last minute in my search for good Greek food in the city. I thought the food was very good (with the chicken souvlaki always being my favorite). My friends enjoyed their meals as well. Prices were reasonable and I went home with leftovers.

We were seated in the "outer"
We were seated in the "outer" area of the Greek Kitchen, at the windows facing 10th Avenue. It was quite quiet, and the staff didn't forget about us for a moment. We all drank only water, and our glasses were constantly monitored and refilled. All of us had been there before, but separately, and were able to make good choices from the menu. As two couples who had not dined together before, we had much to discuss, and were not rushed out of the restaurant after we completed our meal. Altogether most satisfactory and to be commended. We had been to the Greek Kitchen a few times previously, and the other couple lived quite close and frequented the restaurant. We look forward to joining them there again.

Comfortable Greek Food
I liked it. Everything was good. Nothing outstanding. I liked the seating-fairly private. I liked the salads-well prepared. The entree was filling and prepared well. The service was ok. The server was a bit overwhelmed but not too bad. It was unpretentious and comfortable. I will be back.

good grub, pleasant service
A bit overpriced (though reasonable by NY standards), quiet enough to talk. Wish the gyros and other sandwich-type items available at lunch were also available for dinner.

A great place to dine before the ballet or orchestra or opera or theatre! Reasonable prices, EXTREMELY courteous and friendly staff--and terrific Greek fare. A casual, warm environment--and quiet enough to actually have conversations! We heartily recommend The Greek Kitchen.

We've added this to our go-to list!
delicious food, friendly/attentive service, generous portions, and quite reasonable prices. Not too loud (we could hear each other talk), and plenty of room so we weren't right on top of the next table. We sat on the glass-enclosed patio & had fun watching people go by on 10th Ave as we enjoyed a little bit of Greece in Manhattan. We plan to go back again soon!

Had 11 people scheduled for friday night diner, many first timers and they all loved it!
The Greek chicken salad has large pieces of grilled chicken, my fav.
The humus and pita were fresh.

only problem is that the air conditioning was not sufficient on a fairly hot night. would be bad on very hot summer day.

Honest cooking, homey, good value
This is a great little spot for a nice meal in a comfortable atmosphere. The food is tasty and comes in large portions suitable for sharing, and the restaurant is cheerful. We've had the cold appetizers, which are very good and accompanied by generous amounts of warm pita. The grilled fish is really vey good and comes with salad and a side - the roasted potatoes are very nice. We've also tried the moussaka which is very nicely seasoned. Consistently good. Recommended.

This restaurant is such a great find! Dinner for 4 (no liquor) was under $100 including a generous tip. We were stuffed and took home leftovers as well. The staff were all so nice and it was a great night out!

Greek neighborhood gem
Consistently good food! The greek fries are to die for.

The Greek Kitchen review
This is a great find that offers great food in plentiful portions at very moderate prices in an airy and pleasant atmosphere. I intend to make it a regular stop when I attend Lincoln Center performances.

For hungaries before or after shows
Extremely well prepared Greek food in all levels of heartiness. Very generous salad with dinners
and extraordinary appetizers which stand well for a meal. Easy, uncrowded area with alot of
street parking nearby. Completely not posh but clean, very pleasant, and extremely delicious

What a find!
The food, the ambience, the wine and the service are all top notch.
Not only do they serve dinner, but we left with some delicious sandwiches at their adjoining take out shop and we
were not disappointed. New York has another neighborhood gem.

New to us
Odd, that we have lived in this neighborhood forever but this is the first time we ate at the Greek Kitchen. It was terrific, and we'll make it a regular spot for us in the future. The food was delicious, the service great and friendly, and the price was right.

Love this place
My fiance and I found this restaurant about a year ago and have been coming back regularly ever since (it is now our go to spot by far). The avgolemono soup is thick and hearty. The salad that comes as an accompaniment with most main dishes is large and delicious (between the soup and salad it's almost a full meal!), and the items from the grill have never let down. I find the chicken to be incredibly moist and well-seasoned, while my fiance routinely gets the lamb which is almost always perfectly cooked. We would have given the food 5 stars, except we have found that some dishes are far superior to others. It's definitely worth trying out and finding those dishes that are real gems. The atmosphere is simple and casual.

Quite possibly the best authentic Greek restaurants in NYC!

Second time at the greek kitchen and second great experience. Food was delicious, waitress was very very pleasant and the service was great. The wine also was excellent. Love the eating experience and the fact that I live nearby makes me a new regular.

Great Food, Great Price
Went here for our 1 year anniversary after eloping to Greece last year. We enjoyed libations from some of the wineries we visited in Santorini and Corinth and it brought back some good memories. The gyro was delicious and portions generous and the rice pudding was to die for. Moderately priced and wonderful ambiance, I look forward to my next dining experience at the Greek Kitchen.

New face on a familiar place.
The Greek Kitchen has been a favorite for years. This was my first time back in awhile. It's been redesigned and well done. Friday night, the restaurant was packed so the service was a bit slow. But the food was delicious as always. And the wait staff, pleasant. Worth the detour over to 10th Avenue, especially if you're going to Lincoln Center.

Worth the trip
Quintessential Greek food and atmosphere--blue and white tablecloths, Greek specialities, cooperative waiters who knew the wine list and could explain the menu options, did not rush us even though they were busy they gave us more than enough time to finish our appetizers before bringing the entrees which were cooked to perfection and served with delicious lemon potatoes. Dessert was outstanding, my husband had finished it before I took my second bite.

Reliably good dining
Reliably good, affordable Greek food in a pleasant atmosphere with efficient service in the Lincoln Center vicinity. We treasure the Greek Kitchen. (Our favorite dish is the lamb shish kebob which is served with large salad and pita to start and accompanied by your choice of rice, orzo, or potato and yogurt.)

The restaurant is very warm
The restaurant is very warm and friendly. The food is outstanding. The appetizers are delicious and the entrees prepared wonderfully. The portions are generous and the price is very fair. Would eat there weekly if it were closer to Philadelphia.

excellent authentic greek food with no frills. Great place to eat for a casual evening

Met for a lunch meeting, although the restaurant was full and bustling, it was great! Greek is my favorite. Food is authentic, large portions and reasonably priced. Now one of my favorite restaurants. Can't wait to go back.

Love this place and just recently discovered it. Have become a regular ..
