    The salmon salad was fresh and delicious and very filling. Everyone enjoyed their food. Loved the mango iced tea and the two desserts (Carrot cake - moist and contrasted with the perfect not -too-sickly-sweet icing and cookie sundae - total indulgence and a must for chocolate lovers!) we shared between the 4 of us was enough to taste without feeling we had over indulged. All enjoyed in the outdoor dining area on a sunny day, which was open and shaded so the cool breeze kept the temperature down. What a wonderful meal

    This was my first time eating here and I was very impressed. The ingredients are fresh and local from Addison. I had the short ribs and they were so tender that it seemed as if the meat just melted in my mouth. We went on what they called "Date Night" so we received a free bottle of wine with the purchase of two entrees. AWESOME!!! Bertha, our server, was amazing! We will be back!

    My family and I went here for Easter Brunch and it was amazing! I had the Spanish Frittata and my father had the Short Rib Hash, both were fantastic. The service was amazing and the owner came to the table himself to say hello and gave us a pancake to try, another amazing dish! They apparently just began brunch service but I hope they continue it, it was all-around fantastic.

    Menu had very few options for food. Also, IMO was too pricey for that location! No wonder there were so few people dining there. Having said that, the Chicken Souvlaki I ordered was pretty tasty. I wish the waiter was a little bit nicer and brought Tzatziki sauce when we asked for it. His answer was, "It does not come with that dish". When you are charging $20 for a Chicken Souvlaki, it wouldn't hurt to bring a tiny bit of Tzatziki sauce on the side, for free, when the customer asks for it.

    Visited this restaurant while looking for a good place with patio dining. The patio is more closed in but still is nice for dining outdoors. The food was great as well. I had the lamb meatloaf which was quite flavorful with a large serving. Would recommend this place without hesitation!

    Great service, good reasonably priced wine list, but the food was rather disappointing: an absurdly overpriced platter of cold cuts and cheeses featured cheeses available at Kroger (Gouda, seriously?) and three kinds of salami (better selection as Whole Foods). The crab cakes we ordered were overcooked, while the lamb meatloaf was obviously reheated (and overcooked in the process). The polenta that came with the lamb was also reheated and dried out, more like cous-cous than proper polenta. The coffee was great and the service was outstanding, but the place was half-empty. This little restaurant could do a lot better, it has great decor and an excellent location, but the kitchen was clearly on an off day when we visited.

    We were sad to see the menu change without keeping their classic lamb gyro on there. The two small tacos were a disappointing substitute for us. The service was good, but I gave it a fair, bc they didn't alert us about the $1.50 charge on my requested two points of pita bread to accompany my bowl of soup. We love Ziziki's so much, but unfortunately, the Taverna is off our list.

    I chose this restaurant out of the multitude of others based only on the fact they were "gluten-friendly" on their website. I'm so glad I did for many more reasons! The restaurant is very beautiful inside. It's dimly lit and decorated in an "upscale but rustic" tavern theme. There are small, intimate tables for two and large tables that could seat 20. The menu is concise without being boring. The chefs obviously know how to prep and prepare each ingredient. Fresh produce and expertly grilled meats, are what I experienced, not to mention the best gluten-free dessert I have ever tasted (butterscotch pot de crême). Service was attentive as well. I will be back!

    My wife and I have dined at several Ziziki's locations and enjoyed the experience so we decided to try this location in Addison for Valentine's Day. While the food was the same good quality found at most locations, and the server was very attentive, the ambiance was severely lacking. This location's long and thin floorplan made it feel cramped and we couldn't help overhearing our neighbor's conversations. The bright lighting was also wholly unflattering. Perhaps this would make for a good casual lunch venue but it doesn't hold a candle to the superb location on Knox and Travis for a romantic destination.

    As an anniversary surprise, my husband booked a reservation at this delightful Taverna. We found ourselves hungry an hour prior to our reservation. They kindly let us come in early, during happy hour, with half priced mezzas and $2 off beers and some mixed drinks. The mezzas are delicious! l loved the artichoke hummus. The pitas are warm and tasty. The Zizikis Traditional is the most wonderful mixed drink I've encountered. The dinner menu is not large but there are some great choices. My husband had the ribeye, which he enjoyed. I had the chicken, which was a huge serving and well spiced. However, it was dry. The mashed potatoes were okay. Good but not great. Definitely will return to try their other dishes. Highly recommend this location.

    Ziziki's is easy to miss if you have never seen it before. We were a little hesitant since we had not heard anything about it, but decided we would chalk it up to a "dining adventure" regardless of the outcome. We were pleasantly surprised to say the least. We had a party of 6. The service was wonderful, but not intrusive. The hummus was the best we'd had. We decided to order entrees and share them and every dish was wonderful. I am not an easy reviewer, but cannot say enough good things about the food and service. If you decide to try it, don't get deterred by Ziziki's small size or seeming lack of atmosphere. Once you sit down for your meal, you'll forget all about that. Bon Appetite!

    The food was very good - certainly Greek is the undercurrent, but it also has some liberties taken with it that are quite appropriate and perfect if your group includes people who do not need / want the full Greek experience.

    My father came in from Lubbock to celebrate his and my birthday with his family. It was my pick for food, and Greek food is my favorite; none of them had tried Greek food before. I just knew they would love it, and they did! The server was very kind, helpful and energetic to our party regardless of the 7 adults and 3 infants.

    Overall very good but for a Mediterranean place I expect great hummus. It was listed under chickpeas and very dry. I was very disappointed. The rest of the menu was diverse and our entres were good. The ambiance needed a little work. It was very bright for 8 pm on a Friday night. The decor is wonderful and interesting. The table placement is actually the only thing that might keep me from going back. You are mear inches from the other tables on both sides! We could hear every word from the other tables which was not fun or romantic for date night.

    Ziziki's has become a familiar friend to Dallas diners. i once had an office above their Travis Walk location, so i was a frequent visitor. Taverna is a a different take on the theme. There is a good selection of delicious food and a wide price point ,so one can create the experience they wish. our server Bertha ,was very knowledgeable about the food, and was able to inform us in detail; as to ingredients. The artichoke starter is delicious, savory and creamy, and the lamb dishes were tender and flacorful. The Bar makes a great lemon martini. We will return to this little gem.

The lambs chops were perfect medium rare. Soft & succulent! Definitely recommended. However, i would say it is tad pricey for the offerings.

    Had made a reservation several weeks in advance for Valentines day, from the description on their web site "Ziziki's Taverna will feature ... along with romantic booth seating." so I was expecting a more intimate dining experience. The tables where we were seated were small, tight and very close together. Since it was very busy on Valentines, was difficult to even hold a conversation. The food was good. I would have liked to have seen lots more unique tappas offerings. There were only a few. Food was tasty and well prepared. Baklava was very, very good.

    This was not my first time at Ziziki's and it will certainly will not be the last because I have had better experiences at this restaurant, but I must say that the waiting staff left much to be desired. We ordered a bottle of wine and she proceeded to pour almost the entire bottle among the 4 glasses as soon as she opened it. The staff continuously tried to take our plates away while we were still eating! Not even asking but grabbing the plates from the table. It was most disappointing.
