    Twelve Islands is always terrific. The service is uniformly good. I love the food. The lamb chops are delicious as is the souvlaki. We like to start with the tirokafteri dip and also the grilled cheese saganaki. It is not inexpensive (the souvlaki is though!) - but the food is great.... Enjoy!

    We will drive the 30 minutes from home to dine here because it’s the best Greek food around. Authentically prepared dishes are all delicious and the service staff is so friendly and accommodating! Highly recommend you trying it because it will be your go-to place next!

    I have been to this restaurant many times. Went on Valentines Day so that might have something to do with it but was not up to its normal standard. Always order grilled fish and have to say was not as good as normal. Probably cause to busy that night as I will say that is the excuse.

    This is one of my family’s favorites and we do go often. We also bring friends who end up fans too. The pressure was on last night when we brought our Greek friend. He and his wife had been to Greece quite often and knew quite a bit about the cuisine. They enjoyed 12 Islands’ versions of a few of the mainstays.

    Surprisingly, the Greek casseroles are made with beef and not lamb. The salad, pita, gyro chicken and lemon potatoes were very fresh, well seasoned, and enjoyed. The Baklava was full of walnuts.

    The food was fabulous. I had the octopus appetizer and veggie moussaka. My friend had beef moussaka and a Greek salad we shared baklava/cheesecake service was very attentive. The food was delicious. The atmosphere was as if we were in Greece. I have recommended 12 Islands to all the women I met on a recent trip to Greece!

    Dined on Saturday night around 7:30 pm and restaurant was full but not noisy. Pork chop special was tasty but my husband found it somewhat fatty. Mussel appetizer was delicious but could have used a slice of toasted bread to appreciate the shallot flavored sauce. Saganaki was terrific and will return to try more specialty Greek appetizers.
