    The Lamb was great, salads were good and the gyro was also good. The hummus at $11.00, as other appetizers, are way overpriced for what u get. It was a lot of good pita bread, but only 2 tablespoons of hummus. (If that much) was disappointed in the hummus quantity, as in other restaurants u get 3 times the amount for half the price. Our Lamb was $26.00, the Lamb Hamburger was $16.00. Food was good

    We dine with Ziziki's often. The atmosphere is pleasant, casual but also good if you want to dress up a little. The food if consistently good, they use high quality ingredients and provide portion sizes that are just the right size definitely not small. It is always better to have high quality food versus huge serving sizes. The service is prompt and professional, not too intrusive, they allow you to relax and enjoy your meal versus turn the table. We see a lot of the same wait staff and hostess staff each time we go which is a good indicator. This is one of our "go-to" places in Plano.

    Very large portions for many items. The prices seemed to be 30% higher than expected probably to account for the 25% off coupons that are easily available. The moussaka (sp?) was very enjoyable, but not as decadently wonderful as the established leader in this category not too far away. Great pita and artichoke dip! Mmmmmmm! Paella was huge, with lots of unexpected, interesting and good protein additions.

    The Plano Ziziki's- The service is outstanding- always polite and interesting the wait staff is so friendly. The menu has a variety of wonderful Greek food- I will say that the pita's are the best in Dallas. I have travelled all over the world- Yes to Greece so I know that the food is pretty authentic. The wine list is awesome! I truly enjoy coming to Ziziki's - My only concern is the noise level when it is full- it gets to be much but honestly I would not let that ever stop me from going. I like that they have a separate area for large party's, they have a nice patio, and the tables are nicely arranged. I would say this is an all around outstanding place to eat.

    I love Ziziki's! The food is outstanding......from the appetizers to the sweets. You can't have a bad meal there. The service is very friendly and attentive. My favorite meals are Shrimp Suvulaki and Grilled Shrimp Salad with Ziziki dressing. The Baklava Icecream dessert is unbelievably good. Yum yum.

    Ziziki's is one of two restaurants in Plano where you don't feel like you are in Plano but more like you are in Dallas. Although Ziziki's has other locations in the Dallas area, it does not feel like a "chain" – unlike most restaurants in the Shops at Legacy which are very commercial and chain-like. Each time we dined here, the food is high quality and consistently good. Quite a few of the wait staff are tenured and we always find the service level just right - not too pushy, not too absent. On this visit, my husband got one of the specials, Chicken Scaloppini - the Waitress' recommendation - and he was glad he asked her and took her advice. I would recommend Ziziki's for a nice relaxing night out any day of the week.

    Took a date here for valentines day and to my surprise there was a fixed v-day menu - $55 per person. This included a sparse appetizer tray (grapes, apple slices, 2 shrimp), salad, main course, and cake to share. The food was good but WAY over priced. I normally go here for lunch and eat the exact same thing for around $15. The price hike for valentines dinner was ridicules and felt it was a little bit of a price gouge. Also, standard mixed drinks started a $10. I don't drink at lunch so not sure if this was inflated as well. Bottom line is this experience turned me off from eating here again. If you want no hassle better Greek food, try Zoe's Kitchen instead of this place.

    Went for my wife's birthday, which also happens to be valentine's day. The food and service were great, and it had a fun but classy atmosphere (but not quiet if that's what youre looking for). They had their valentine's day menu, but they let us customize it and brought her their baklava ice cream cake (fantastic) with a birthday candle. We had a great time, and would definitely recommend it for a nice date night.

    Overall, Ziziki's is just okay. I believe the food is key at most restaurants and sadly this food here did disappoint. The taste and description on the menu did not fit what was served. I definitely have had better and the only highlight was the service. Other than that, I will not recommend Ziziki's to any family/friends and will not return. Look elsewhere for food with Greek and Italian influences.

    We always enjoy eating at Ziziki's in Plano when we feel like having great Greek food without traveling to Greece. The wait staff is very gracious and never rush you through courses. Their Greek salad is a great starter and is so refreshing with its creamy dressing. The lamb is always tender, moist, and flavorful and served with their signature outstanding roasted potatoes. It's a great restaurant for both couples out for the evening and families.

    We had our girls Christmas luncheon at Ziziki's recently and all had a great time. The service was perfect - not too pushy or hovering, but there when we needed something. Our food was beautifully presented, yummy and relatively healthy too. My only complaint on this visit was we were seated right as you come in the door, and every time it opened it was very cold. I will ask for a table further back next time. Otherwise, great experience!

    We visited Ziziki's for the first time on a very rainy night in October. The service started out a little slow, but did improve. Our appetizers - the sample plate with various typical Greek offerings - and my husband's moussaka were wonderful - probably the best we've had outside of Europe! I was not too hungry after the appetizers and I wanted to save room for the Baklava ice-cream cake, so I ordered a crab cake appetizer from the "specials". It was dry and bland, and had the texture and uniform shape of a mass produced frozen crab cake. Then came the baklava ice-cream cake - and that more than made up for any other disappointments - and was definitely worth the calories! The pluses outweighed the negatives and we plan to return.

    Having frequented the Travis location, I was excited to try another one, and was not disappointed. The dolmades are accompanied by fresh veggies, the Greek lasagna is food fit for a king, and the sliced leg of lamb as succulent as always. There is a gorgeous patio for outdoor seating. Being there for lunch, I cannot speak as to the dinner items nor the wine list. There was a table tent advertising a free order of Ziziki bread appetizer if you text a # for their alerts, which I did, and I'm glad it was free because I would have not liked paying $7 for some bread covered in cheese. The server forgot to take it off the bill which I didn't notice til the next day, bummer. There were long stretches of time I didn't see our server, busy lunch hr.

    Ziziki's is one of our all time favorites. The salmon souvlaki and spanikopita are outstanding, and the service is always excellent. While the Plano location lacks the intimate ambience of the original in Dallas, it is a beautiful and sophisticated space that attracts a diverse clientele.

    Dolmades were delicious but the garnish of 2 tomatoes and 2 olives and red onions with feta were the same on all our other dishes I personally ordered the lamb and found the pieces on the kebob to be too tough to swallow. The waiter said that he understood and brought me a half order more which was the same tough meat so I didn't eat more. My wife and I were not comfortable with the noise level of the entire restaurant such as the bus crew stacking glasses noisily in a partition behind us and the music not appropriate for dining with the only sound to be heard was boom, boom, boom. The restaurant was crowded so evidently a lot of customers like the ambience, but they just lost 2 clients and our friends as well!!

    My wife and I were entertaining an out-of-town couple, and we took them to Ziziki's because we knew that we could count on a great meal that was just a bit out of the ordinary. I resisted the temptation to have moussaka or souvlaki yet again and opted for the stuffed lamb loin. Our menu selections were delicious as usual and the service was attentive without being over-bearing. The restaurant also accommodated our request for a quiet table suitable for conversation.
