Went in with high expectationsWent in with high expectations and it fell a little short. Had a great meal with outstanding service.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMInnovative GreekThis isn't your mama's moussaka - this is classic Greek flavors done with innovative platings and superb execution. The wood-grilled octopus with fennel paired with a shot of ouzo is inspired. Lamb shoulder, roasted beets with walnut skordalia, baby okra -- all top notch, as is what would otherwise be a safe choice: chicken, yet served tender and lemony with perfect fingerlings,
I'd be back every week except that I live 9,000 miles away, sadly. Chicagoans are lucky to have this find -- Bib Gourmand raters, you seriously need to hit Wicker Park!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent small plates, veryExcellent small plates, very good large ones. Quite noisy on a Saturday night. Food comes out quickly.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMLove it!Blows any greek town restaurant away! The server was really knowledgeable about the menu and didn't get annoyed when I asked for gluten free and dairy free. Was very helpful on helping me find great dishes that fit my diet. And steered me away from those that need the dairy to make the dish. Greek wine is amazing as well!
Even though its in a hip neighborhood and hires young hip service, There is not even a little bit of a hipster attitude, every time we dine there. Aside from great food, its the service that we really keep coming back for. Have loved food at other restaurants, but when the servers were mean, aloof or had a really snooty attitude, we stop dining there. We always go back to Taxim!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good food. Very goodVery good food. Very good service. Not too much expensive. A very good address to remember.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMTry everything! Get smallTry everything! Get small plates and large plates and just share. The food is great. Oh and make sure to get the donuts with the honey cream sauce...they are to die for! I have never had a dessert like that and I will never forget it. And will be back often to indulge in it!4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreek wonder, worth a detourWe started with grilled octopus, excellent. Main dishes were the duck gyros and the Amish chicken, both excellent. Dessert was their version of traditional nut and honey thing, also excellent. The duck dish had wonderful fries and a small red pepper salad that was outstanding. Only item I might consider changing is the falafel because by the end I was stuffed, maybe experiment with a pancake more like a taco to lighten it up.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMCelebrated my birthday withCelebrated my birthday with my husband.

I brought friends from out of town here, and they loved it, as well.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have lived in the neighborhoodWe have lived in the neighborhood for 2 1/2 years and cannot believe that we never dined here. It was some of the best food in the city, hands down. And the service was personable and accommodating. We will return!! I recommend sitting in the back of the restaurant for better ambiance.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely delicious. MyAbsolutely delicious. My spouse & I shared the hummus. He had the roasted chicken and I had the sea bass. While the fish was good and reminded us of dishes we had in Europe, his chicken was one of the best roasted chickens ever. We loved the wine list; it has a lot of unique Greek wines that are hard to find elsewhere.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
