    Have 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?

    While 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.

    We 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.

    Looked 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.

    We 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.

    I 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...

    We 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.

    This 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!

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.

  • The "rate your experience"
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 6/22/2012
    The "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.
