    Perhaps the worst pita platter I have had in my life. First the fries were cold.Secondly the meat wasn' t cooked on the traditional spit so it wasn't crispy. It was sliced really thin so it had no flavor. The thing preventing me from giving lower score is my wife liked her fish dish.

    1st time and very pleasantly surprised. Greek salad excellent, beet salad so so, lamb chops delicious, sea bass and chicken kebabs good. Nothing too oily or heavy. Service was wonderful, very friendly and honest when asking about a certain dish. Came with a groupon coupon and unlike some places, absolutely no hassles. Will be returning

    We were on vacation & used a Groupon to go here.Yes- we checked the fine print before going.It did NOT mention the payment limitations when you use a Groupon.It was 4 of us that went & the couple we went with wanted to pay separately.Apparently, you can only use 1 payment method.At least we had enough cash on us so the other group could use a credit card!This was in no way explained before we went,or we would've been prepared.However,the food was good & the service was pretty good.If you need or want to leave in a hurry,it won't happen as it takes awhile to get the check.It was NOT a large group of us that went but the tip was automatically added to the bill.They said it was part of the Groupon yet the fine print didn't say this either.

    In our experience, this was the best-tasting Greek food we've had this side of the Adriatic. After a cheese-olive appetizer, I enjoyed a plate of LOUKANIKO MAKARONI (yes, pasta), and my seafood-fussy wife relished her serving of SHRIMP SAGANAKI, saying it was "delicious". Greek yogurt with honey and almonds capped off a perfect meal. I will return for the lamb chops.

    Nothing special about this place. It is probably authentic as I have eaten in Athens itself, and it's pretty close (Greek food is not the top of the line in cuisines anyway). So it is not bad it's OK but not for the price. I've ordered a rack of lamb which is my favorite in a Greek restaurant. What I got was meager, poorly-looking 4 pieces with simple rice and not so appealing side of overly cooked vegetables which had no taste at all.. I'd refrain from recommending so I won't be on the hook to provide explanations later...

    My boyfriend and I received a gift card to this restaurant and were pleasantly surprised by how amazing the food was. We ordered the calamari for an appetizer and then the signature platter for two. It was the perfect amount of food and so tasty. For dessert we ordered baklava and it surpassed our expectations. The negative I can say is about when I called the restaurant. The phone kept going voicemail. I was concerned that the restaurant might have shut down since no one was answering the phones and their website no longer existed. When I mentioned it to the host, he seemed confused and just said he wasn't sure. If I was patron trying to book a reservation they would have lost my business. Luckily, I made the reservation online.

    Travelled over an hour to reach this treat. Well worth the drive. Aphrodite Chicken was a wonderful, robust melange of flavors and textures. One member of our party, who is a farmer, decided to try the lamb and reported it was the best he's had in 20-years. Another discerning diner opted for the Spanikota (sic) Seafood and was pleased with both quantity and quality. Portions and prices were well within reason; sidedishes were included and quite delightful (tasty potatoes and rice, gorgeous vegetables). We'll drive again to share this experience with others. Recommended without hesitation.

    We ate at Trata on a Saturday night, when they were very busy and a bit understaffed. The food was good, well prepared, the menu was typical and the prices were reasonable. The reason to eat here is the location, before or after dinner you can stroll along Las Olas. The welcome station was very helpful giving parking advice, that alone is worth a return visit, but this time on a weekday.

    We arrived early to have a Happy Hour drink (separate bill). We were asked if we were going to use any coupons at dinner. I said yes and then was advised we could not have the half price drinks and use the coupon also. Martinis arrived in very small glasses at 12$ each. We found this to be a "wrong move" on the part of the restaurant but decided to go ahead and have dinner. We asked for a corner table overlooking the street but were advised that one was reserved. The restaurant wasn't even half full. . Service arrived quickly and was excellent. The food was wonderful even though the mussels in the appetizer were hard to open. We would make different arrangements for drinks and appetizers. The OVERALL EXPERIENCE is very important.

    My boyfriend and I eat here about once a month and are never disappointed. The serving staff is very friendly and attentive (I go through at least 7 glasses of water with dinner and they were there to fill it each time). The bread and hummus to start is so good. We typically get the Greek salad, Chicken Kabob and mussels and love it every time. Its a small restaurant with a cute atmosphere and great food.

    My friend had the Greek Paella which at more than $30 was dissapointingly tasteless. I had the baked smoked cheese which was almost inedible since it was so salty. The decor is more French then Greek apart from the standard issue photo of whitewashed houses next to the bright blue Mediterranean. We won't be going there again.

    The food at Trata was excellent and the service was attentive. However, the evening was ruined when an 18% gratuity was added to our bill and there was no mention of this on the menu or by the server when the bill was provided. We were only a party of 3. This is atypical practice and should have been pointed out in some fashion. I suspect this is one way to get extra gratuities from unsuspecting patrons who do not read the bill in detail. This was very disappointing.

    Wonderful dining spot. The food was extraordinary: every bite was a burst of flavors, and the wine complemented it very well. Service (Nicholas) was expert and attentive, without being "in our face". I had the grilled calamari ( melt in your mouth) and my husband had the giant Greek Lyma beans for appetizers: delicious, like my grandma used to cook them. For entrees I had the special grilled whole fish (Seabass) and my husband had the moussaka. We shared a dessert that was just as fabulous. The only problem was the discovery of an 18% tip added to our bill, although it was just the two of us, and no warning at the beginning of the meal. We were glad we looked, since the overall price was substantial, and we could have easily missed it.
