- OpenTable Diner Since 2012VIPDined on 10/11/2014A great neighborhood spot, with good food and exceptionally friendly, attentive service.Special Features:
- Not the Ziziki's from past yearsDenaJVIPDined on 10/5/2014I used to love Ziziki's but this is my third visit in recent months that have made me decide there will not be a fourth. The dinner menu has become much more limited with virtually none (other than salad) veggie choices. They no longer have the Sunday buffet. Instead I got to have a salad with 5 very overcooked shrimp for $17. More overcharging, marinated mushrooms (used to be great on the buffet) are $10 for a side dish. Nope, we are not talking wild shrooms, just plain old criminis. Overall, changes seem to show a restaurant that is having trouble making it financially. Other great choices for Middle Eastern/Greek in town now.
- Consistently above parWiserolderDined on 9/27/2014Atmosphere, food and service consistently good. The staff is attentive and congenial. The dessert was exceptionsl.Special Features:
- Disappointed this timeWantingmoreDined on 9/6/2014Have been to Ziziki's several times in past. Food was not up to par this visit. Lamb was tough & chewy. Pita seemed store bought. Sauce a bit cloying, not fresh & vibrant. Was it just this visit or is this what Zizikis has become?
- Artichoke hummusbaileyDined on 8/31/2014The hummus is just great!! Very good food and service. I've been the a number of times and it doesn't disappoint.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Super placeOpenTable Diner Since 2007Dined on 8/8/2014Wonderful food, attentive and knowledgable service (but no hovering), nice ambiance -- just an all-around great restaurant. Great lunch spot for a quick lunch or a leisurely gathering. Greek/Mediterranean food at its best!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Greek-Good comfort foodimonsecondVIPDined on 7/28/2014While the Travis Walk Ziziki's is the signature place, we go to this one as it is closer and the menu is similar. Try the Greek Board, a pretty good sampler of appetizers. To me, it is the Greek equivalent of an Italian or TexMex neighborhood restaurant and sometimes that's what you really want. Service was great, and they were very accommodating about my Opentable request for a table away from the noise.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Sunday BrunchOpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 7/13/2014We ordered vegetarian option and food was delicious. I felt like it is more like Greek restaurant. But it's a good choice for a change. Ambience was alright. Small place but service was very good.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- OverpricedcolorfulplateDined on 7/4/2014We took my husband to Ziziki's to celebrate his birthday. We had eaten at the location in Addison a few months ago and enjoyed it, but apparently it is no longer in business, so we went to the North Dallas location. My husband and I each ordered a Gyro sandwich with grilled veggies. My daughter had a Greek salad. We all drank water. The bill was almost $60. Wow. And the gyro meat was greasy. In future we will stay closer to home where the gyros are much less greasy, come wrapped in paper and cost less than $10 each. Those veggies weren't worth that much.

- Great food, disappointed in beerfordtDined on 5/4/2013Looked around on net while visiting in Dallas for a place to meet a friend. Settled on Ziziki's, very good food overall, albeit pricey appetizers. Website had menus and wine list which stated "rotating craft beer selections" only to find bartender didn't know what a craft beer was and suggested Lone Star or Shiner.....yikes.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- We were in Dallas for oneOpenTable Diner Since 2008Dined on 3/16/2013We were in Dallas for one night and looking for a good restaurant. We love Mediterranean food and the reviews were favorable, so we tried Ziziki's. The food was absolutely excellent, the wine list offered some very nice selections, and the service was tremendous. We would definitely recommend Ziziki's to friends and will certainly eat there again.Special Features:

- Excellent Modern MediterraneanOpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 2/14/2013We visited Ziziki's in a search for excellent Mediterranean food and we got just that. From appetizers all the way through dessert, every dish was wonderful. The wait staff was courteous and prompt and the ambiance was warm. We would definitely go back again and have recommended it heartily already.Special Features:

- Food always good, noise levelOpenTable Diner Since 2012VIPDined on 2/13/2013Food always good, noise level ok, not too bad and service always professional and prompt.Special Features:
- Greek taste only in the nameSmart72inDined on 2/13/2013I have expected Greek cuisine and having lived in Greece for several years, but I was quite disappointed. Given the name "Ziziki's" I thought that at least the famous Zaziki dish will be the highlight. Unfortunately it had nothing to do with Greek yoghurt and dried cucumbers as the recipe says...Special Features:
- We were celebrating an adultOpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 2/6/2013We were celebrating an adult birthday, and several children were present. They set up a separate room to accommodate us, and the server was very helpful in both patience and knowledge of the menu. The food is always delicious. We would not hesitate to return for either a special occasion or for a casual dinner with friends.Special Features:
- 5 star excellent read my review!OpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 1/11/2013This was my first time at Zizikis. I proposed to my girlfriend of four years there on jan 11,2013. I had to organize everything with the staff there, as it was a surprise to my girlfriend. I called them ahead of time, I wanted to have "will you marry me" written on the outside of the dessert Plate, and they didn't have anything that could write on plate, BUT they went to a store especially for me, To get something that they could write on the plate.. WOW! That was very impressive. I had very specific plans for how I wanted to do it, I had a staff member record me proposing, they put me on a very good Table, and made everything as perfect as it could have been. This is a fantastic restaurant, and the food was great!Special Features:

- The service was great. TheOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 8/10/2012The service was great. The staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome. They accommodated our sharing of appetizers and some entrees so well. I can't believe how cute this restaurant is, and the food is over the top. I will go back on a date their soon. The manager has a positive and very supportive presence on the floor, and will insure you have a great experience. She does incredibly well at her job. Make sure to end you meal with the baklava cake. You will not regret it.Special Features:

- We had a nice time. Food wasOpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 7/28/2012We had a nice time. Food was good. It is a little expensive for what you get.
- The "rate your experience"OpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 6/22/2012The "rate your experience" box, probably was designed by a politician; the adjectives are all politically correct. Under noise, there is no selection of "noisy" (which it was), just energetic.......which it was not. I don't particularly enjoy hearing other people's conversations when out to dinner. And the dragging of the chairs across the floor was even more unpleasant. Food was good and was just the thing to end an otherwise lack luster week on a more pleasant note. Service...someone came in 10 minutes later, and got their food within 10 while we were still waiting. Guess they called in their order? (same waiter) Next time a lamb "fix" arises, think I'll see about placing an order to go. Then can enjoy it in peace and quiet.
- Lamb FanOpenTable Diner Since 2006Dined on 6/21/2012Ziziki's has always been one of my favorite restaurants. The food is conistantly good and the service is some of the best in the industry. Although, I was not a lamb fan the first time I went to Ziziki's, after being urged by my friends, I tried the lamb. I am now a lover of Ziziki's lamb! It was and is and probably will always be outstanding!!!Special Features:
- This is a favorite neighborhoodOpenTable Diner Since 2006Dined on 6/20/2012This is a favorite neighborhood restaurant. The ambiance is that of a 5 star restaurant. The lighting is perfect and there is always a nice bustle to the place. The wait staff has been there a long time and are experienced servers. They know when to approach and when not. Service has always been top notch. The food is wonderful and always consistent. I have never been disappointed.Special Features:
