Always a great meal,it was packed and everyone in the staff was so attentive,always great!
It is wonderful to have such a great restaurant so close to home, especially when the weather is bad! It is also great that it is open early. We went for an early dinner and it was perfect, as always! I had a whole fish, which was filleted for me by our server, John. John has been taking care of us for years, and we are quite spoiled! George, the chef, is consistantly treating us to delicious meals, and of course Marvin assists John in taking care of all our needs.
We will always return for more!
The food was incredible! The wine list is very nice and pairs well with the food. The place is very loud but it quieted down after 9pm.
Great food. Waited a long tome to be served. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
As always, the service was personal and great and the food, fantastic!
Excellent food and service.
Wonderful healthy tasty food. Excellent service also. Best Greek around
Food was good , waitstaff was good . The food came out way too fast and we felt rushed .
Our go to restaurant for the best grilled octopus and fish around. Warm family owned business, great service, abundance of choices and authentic Greek owners and staff.
My wife and I had a great dinner there this week. Although we have lived in the area for seventeen years, this was our first time; we will be back!
We enjoyed our appetizers and shared a whole Red Snapper for our entree; Delicious! Our waiter prepared and served us at the table and he did an excellent job. Excellent service.
Highly recommend. Our second trip in a month. The food is fresh, perfectly prepared and tasty. The service is friendly, informative, attentive and passionate about Greece.
I had gotten up early and had a lot to do, so we decided to go to a local place as I was tired. Of course, we decided on 12 Islands! We have been going to this wonderful place for perfect meals for years and they never let us down. We saw the owner, Manny, when we arrived and he greeted us with a hug and a kiss....same with our server John and his "assistant" Marvin. We have known them both for years and they are like family! The chef, George, outdid himself again..the food is amazing! Everything was perfect! If you love great food served by wonderful staff, go to 12 Islands and prepare to be spoiled!
We love 12 Islands! Our #1 pick for family get togethers
My food was overdone but my wife loved hers.
The food is fantastic and the service is great but they need to lower the lights. It is absolutely too bright in the bar area and in the main dining room.
Food was delicious! Great fish..large salads enough to share with 3 or 4 people. Attentive staff. Would recommend for seafood lovers and everyone.
What can I say? We have been going to this restaurant for years and it continues to be one of our favorite places to dine. We are always treated like family, the service is always perfect, and the food is amazing. I couldn't even recommend a specific dish because it is all good! We will continue to be regulars and recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants great food and service!!
This was our first visit and we were very pleased. Tired of the same old same, this Greek Alternative was just the what we are looking for. Food is authentic and plentiful at reasonable prices. Our server was excellent! He was knowledgeable, friendly, and efficient. Great cocktails and a decent wine list with something for every taste and budget. Will definitely be back!
Half my party ran late but we were treated well by the staff. Great server and the food was yummy. We found it on Yelp and so glad we did!
I've enjoyed this restaurant over the years, though sometimes meals were better than others. Lately they are doing a wonderful job . Everyone in my party of 6 was impressed and satisfied.
Nice relaxing meal at this Greek restaurant. Lamb special was yummy n chick pea salad is large and delicious. Greek wine was surprisingly good.
Took a friend to celebrate her going off to college. The service really amazing. All the meals were great. In particular, the scallops were spectacular... really... spectacular. You owe it to your self to try the grilled octopus.
Always a great meal. Johnny and Nicholas are great servers.
Always something different and always delicious.
Seafood was awesome. I was very impressed with how perfectly cooked it all was. Best octopus I've had in a long time.
Great food. Excellent service! We'll be back again
This restaurant is good with their seafood. We ordered four seafood dishes and everyone of them was outstanding. This is a good joint for fine dining. Nick was very courteous and attentive.
Absolutely delicious. We're in the area for a wedding and picked this restaurant based on Opentable reviews and the reviews are right. The seafood was great. The grilled calamari was tender and the sauce so good we kept the platter for bread dipping. The halibut and branzino were also wonderful. We also got the custard in phyllo which was huge, maybe a little sweet with the syrup on top so ask for it without but the custard was tasty. And the servers were very friendly with lots of suggestions. All in all a top notch dining experience.
We have eaten at 12 Islands several times and it is mostly good. Once in a while it had missed, but this particular night was great.
Love everything here, table of 8 had the following and highly recommend: Black Sea bass cooked as whole fish, husband thought it was superb; I had halibut special over rice, tender, moist and delicious!! Others had beef/lamb gyro, excellent as always; chicken bruschetta, lamb chops and shrimp pasta all really tasty!! NO leftovers and 8 very happy customers!! Love this place and have been many times and will continue to bring family and friends.
My family get together for dinner every Friday night to spend quality family time. We have a a short list of excellent places that we like to eat and 12 Islands has been high on our list for years!
Chef George, manager Gus and servers John, Nic and Chris work very hard to make each of our visits perfect.
Love, love love this place and I try to get there whenever I can..and I highly recommend it!
Always consistently delicious! Staff is very welcoming.
This is a special gem... Great food, superb service in a causal setting. Outstanding was the Bronzino and baklava with ice cream dessert.
Great food - super staff. Local find! Would definitely recommend!
Greek food at its best. Gyros are great
Fabulous find! We had the grape leaves, eggplant dip, grilled scallop special with fresh basil orzo and a traditional lamb casserole dish. Everything was excellent and the service was superb with knowledgeable and friendly staff. Great selection of wine and very reasonably priced. Relaxed atmosphere, restaurant is very pretty inside and out. Can't wait to return!
So disappointing. I've been to 12 Islands many times and have always had a great experience. Went for Mother's Day and it was awful! Made a reservation thru Open Table, but wound up in the small room with a table next to us of at least 16 people - including many kids who screamed off on throughout the evening and the parents simply yelled down the table. The service was awful - food came quickly but was not the quality I was used to and one order was wrong. We waited so long for our waiter to come back and check on us that we ate it anyway and then had to have a manager intervene to take it off the bill. They seemed understaffed and overwhelmed. I'll return, but never again on any type of holiday.
Lovely as always! Packed house for Mothers Day but they still took care of us
I love 12 Islands. We dine there frequently and love the place. The fish is alway fresh and prepared to order.
The restaurant always accommodates us and is also kid friendly. Very well run
Great food. Quick and attentive service. Inside decor is unremarkable but fine. Exterior doesn't do the food justice.
Overall, very good experience there. We will go back for sure.
