    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 8/17/2014
    We went on Sunday night. The service was LOUSY-took 10 minutes until we were asked for a drink order, and when we ordered a bottle of wine, we had to pour it ourselves, as we did throughout. Another 5 minutes later, a server appeared and took our food order. We ordered the Greek Board as an app and it was not at all it is described on the menu or what we have ordered the 15-20 other times we have been to this restaurant. The server made a ton of excuses about being short staffed and all the things that, we as the customers, are not interested in. The entrees were excellent - but the overall experience: we're done. This isn't the first time, and we are done paying $100+ for two for dinner and not having a the experience we expected.

    Another great meal and evening! Our server Miguel is wonderful and made the night a wonderful one! His memory and attention to detail, along with the wonderful food, makes it hard not to be a favorite. It is one of those consistely great places where you don't mind being a regular.

Our entire group walked away happy and are still talking about the great night we had. Thank you Miguel & Ziziki's!!!

    Every year we go to Ziziki's for Mother's Day Brunch and as usual the food was great! But the service was very spotty....I mean it took 40 minutes to get a cup of coffee and forget refills. New ownership and management need to listen to the waiters who have been working there for years. They overbooked and it is a small place anyway. But it still serves the best Greek food in Dallas.

    I was a bit disappointed with the experience. I made a reservation through OpenTable but when I got there she hostess shoved us into a small corner table, saying that all the other tables were taken. On top of all this, the only option we had was buffet which was not spectacular. Needless to say, this is not a restaurant I will be returning to, brunch or otherwise. My guess commented that the restaurant in front looked a lot more appealing.

    Made my first visit here after a mavs game. The staff was very friendly and unhurried, the service prompt, and though we chose to eat inside there are great tables outside. Food was great from the pita bread appetizers, my salad, and the lamb and chicken entrees we had. We will return again when we are looking for Mediterranean food.

    It was very pleasant being at your restaurant. The ambience was very nice. Unfortunately, I don't dine out very often. I knew it would be a bit expensive at Ziziki's, and it was, for me for right now. (My financial picture will change soon, and I'll be more in a position to visit much more often!) I was impressed by the attractiveness and welcoming manner of the young lady who greeted me as I came in. Your servers were also attractive and pleasant, all befitting a small Uptown restaurant with "class". I felt well-attended to! Thank you!

    We booked a table on OpenTable for post-opera dinner on Valentines Day. We generally like Ziziki's and were looking forward to it. When we got there for post Opera dinner we found we were limited to a special V Day menu--more expensive than we expected, more food than we wanted and (worst of all) the food had been prepared long before and suffered from sitting in the warmer for much too long. The bar ender couldn't make a kir--didn't even know what creme de cassis is. Very disappointing.

    We were fabulously impressed with Zizikis and Frida, our server - who on Valentine's night, was incredibly attentive to our table of six - comprised of two couples and our two rowdy little boys. We were thrilled that the restaurant accommodated a group of six in the first place, and they treated us as well (if not better) than all the lovebirds. The food was delicious (as always.) My son and I arrived a little before the rest of our party and was hungry. Frida asked the kitchen to prepare some Ziziki bread, which was NOT on the limited Valentine's day menu, to keep him from losing it. The wine flowed constantly, the food came out delicious and in timely manner. You're my valentine this year, Zizikis.

    We only had the starter which had a little of everything and was wonderful. We left because our waitress was rude. I'd love to give it another try just not with her. On the starter plate was grape leaves, lamb cheeses, phyllo, artichoke dip, pita and various condiments. It was so good and the presentation was also great. I was looking forward to having a great meal and so disappointed that the waitress had to ruin it for us.

    The only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars was because they were out of the sea bass. But my husband got the salmon instead & said it was delish - especially the orzo that came with it. I had the shrimp souvlaki with a side of mixed veggies. All was great. The waitress brought us both wine that we enjoyed, so the evening was a success.

    This a very good, little restaurant. The evening we dined it seemed to be short-handed but they did their best to attend to us. I strongly urge the owners to replace the vent hood over the grill. The current one is not strong enough and does not extract enough odors and smoke when you sit in the back of this restaurant.
