  • "Really great Greek food, most Greek places only serve fish but the Greek Kitchen has real Greek cooking, I come here for all my Greek favorites. The Moussaka is to die for, and the Saganaki is another must!"

  • "Great food and service with good sized portions. Lamb shank was tender, and salads were awesome. Cocktails were mixed well and the bartender wasn't shy."

  • "This was a repeat visit for me. I met a friend there this time before a lecture at John Jay. The food was great, service was attentive without being intrusive. My lamb was cooked perfectly, as was my friend's lamb shank. I have never had a bad meal there and I would definitely return."

  • "I've eaten here several times and done delivery. Food is always fresh and yummy. Have had spreads, mixed grill, lamb. All tasty, good portion sizes. But the place itself is so dated. Dark and dreary and cheap. "

  • "While the location is not great the food makes the trip worthwhile. The whole fish entrée is just great as are the appetizers. The staff is very pleasant. Everything we have tried on the menu has been done in a wonderful Greek tradition. We find the food very reasonably priced. It is well worth the walk over to 10th Ave. We just find ourselves going back every time we are in midtown NYC."

  • "delicious food, excellent service, reasonable prices. My mouth is watering just thinking about the avgolemono soup & the chicken souvlaki... everything on the menu is yummy! - even the pita bread, which they bring to the table warm. I was in Greece on vacation last year and really do like the food here better. My out-of-town guests always love it, too. It's my go-to place for Greek food in NYC."

  • "We had a reservation for 9:15 pm, Saturday, 4/19. As soon as we sat down, we were told the kitchen was closing. You should notify the customer at the time of the reservation that the kitchen would be closing shortly thereafter and dinner will be rushed. We would have made an earlier reservation. "

  • "I work a block away from this place and am so happy I do. They have the Best Chicken Souvlaki Platter! Their Greek Fries are to die for and the tzatziki is amazing! I never go wrong when I go to or order from this place. I tend to make large orders for our team lunches and they are super accommodating over the phone as well as when you dine there. The prices are also great Really love this place. "

  • "The food on Easter was great, but service was inconsistent. Did the Easter menu and the waiter brought the 2nd & 3rd course together. I also don't understand why any restaurant wants you to reuse flatware from one course to the other and takes it off you dirty plate and places it on the table. Sorry, it's gross. I worked in hospitality for 40years and nowhere did I ever allow that to happen. "

  • "The Greek Kitchen and it's friendly staff never miss. It is always a pleasure to drop in here for a full dinner of a light meal pre or post theatre. Tasty fresh ingredients, prepared with that deft light touch, Greek style. Delicious. And the check is never a shocker, so you go home happy, and normally with leftovers for lunch the next day."

  • "We were looking for a place to eat with visitors staying on the west side by 58st. We found this restaurant within a block and gave it a try. Boy what a find. Excellent food with strong choices for healthy eaters, fish was excellent and service was very attentive. Place got busy by 6:30pm so obviously locals are in the know. I highly recommend."

  • "We had come into the city for an event and choose the Greek Kitchen because of it's location this past Sunday (Feb 9, 2014). We were a party of 7. The service was outstanding! The food was delicious! I had the Middle Eastern salad and everything was so fresh. Other members of our party had Greek Salad, chicken and lamb dishes and all agreed it was the best Greek food we've ever had. The service was also outstanding! One of our friends was celebrating a birthday and she really went out of her way to make it extra special. We hope to return to this excellent restaurant!"

  • "We needed a place for a quick lunch before attending the taping of a show at the CBS studios. My friend has gluten free dietary requirements and The Greek Kitchen fit the bill. We had Greek salads with grilled shrimp, which were delicious and we were in and out in no time!"

  • "Looks like a diner with blue and white check table cloths, covered by paper. Dishes are the style of Milos (a very expensive "happening" Greek restaurant), but much less expensive. We ate on the "porch". Tables were close together, so we got the whole conversation of the people at the next table, even though the restaurant was not at all crowded. Whole fish was fresh and grilled perfectly. Ordered the grilled seafood appetizer for two. Luckily we had it as a main dish. Plenty of food."

  • "Greek Kitchen has been a neighborhood staple for about 10 (?) years. The food has always been very good. It is standard Greek fare served by a small wait staff. Things changed a little a few years ago when they increased the floor space by developing a wraparound second tier. It's colder in the winter and stretches the staff a little. Book inside if that's an option. I really like the Greek Kitchen, especially later in the evening after the dinner rush…not too late, because they put the chairs on the table around 10:30."

  • "On 10th Ave, this is an easy walk from the mid-town hotels, offering great food with the usual massive US plate sizes, that should attract lots of out of Towners like us. Good service and a family run feel to it. Good value."

  • "We chose this restaurant because of proximity to LaGuardia High School, as our party was attending the annual musical there. The hostess was pleasant in seating us. First set-back was with waiter who took our drink order. He had no knowledge of wine list and was unable to make recommendations based on our questions. The wine was good btw. We enjoyed the appetizers and salad. Every one of our entrees was overcooked to tastelessness. We all had meat or fish/shrimp dishes. They were all cooked to death, no flavor and tough to chew including the shrimp, beef, and pork. The waiter disappeared after serving entrees and never returned."

  • "The grilled vegetable sandwich was a too greasy. The sandwich had way too many peppers, no mushrooms, no zucchini and just a bit of eggplant. However the spanakopita was perfect."

  • "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."

  • "We enjoyed eating in your restaurant and it was a great place to eat before going to the symphony. We shared the $24 seafood appetizer and although it tasted good it was over cooked and was somewhat rubbery. the service was great and I'm sure we'll be back."

  • "I thought the food was great but it took us over two hours for dinner without dessert / coffee. Very slow service, not attentive at all. I had to ask three times to get a glass of wine"

  • "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.)"

  • "We've been here before - it's great before theater at John Jay College next door. Generally the service is much better, but they had a private party in the little room to the left of the entrance an virtually all of the wait staff just disappeared. Still, we will go back because it serves a need. Also remembering that space for our own private party!"
