Good food and good service.
We were there for a late lunch so it was very quiet. The food and service were excellent. The prices for the food varied from reasonable to pricey (for the entrees).
The food is delicious and healthy and the staff there is wonderful, especially John and his son. They make the dinner very special and memorable.
Excellent food...one of the best restaurants around.
Service lacked in many ways. Fish overcooked. Coffee was stale.
Best Greek restaurant ever.
I have never had a bad meal here. The staff is always friendly and attentive. You have your choice from the traditional greek fair as well as specialties that are hard to find outside of the Mediterranean area. I highly recommend to anyone looking for an excellent meal and experience.
12 Islands has amazing food. Our group of five were very pleased with everything they ordered and we will be going back soon. Service is also terrific, very attentive to all your needs.
We go here often always good food and good service.
Always consistently great food and service.
Fish is always superb! Love the traditional Greek fishes. One of our favorites.
Excellent local gem
We love going to 12 Islands for the food. One constructive criticism I would have is that the waiter was all over us and we felt rushed. They would try to take our plates before we were even done. There is a way to be attentive to your clientele without rushing them.
Great food and service!
Food was not hot when it came out which was disappointing
Had a wonderful lunch with my mom. Our server was great, food was delicious. We had octopus, saganaki, greek salad, zucchini meatball patties and the galaktobouriko. It was all very good. Nice, classic greek food.
first time at 12 Islands and would definitely go back again. Staff were very courteous and helpful explaining unfamiliar dishes. Food was excellent with a very nice varied menu.
The meal was good but the Lemon Potatoes tasted more like pepper than they did of Lemon.
We've been here a few times, and we really need to go more often. Great food! Equally important, it's authentic. And the servers are very nice. I highly recommend this restaurant.
FOUR FOR DINNER...OUTSTANDING FISH, AND A REALLY GREAT PORK CHOP.
THE WAITER ...WARM, FRIENDLY AND MORE...
WE HAVE EATEN HERE MANY TIMES, NEVER HAD ANYTHING BUT A GREAT MEAL, AND ALWAYS...THE STAFF IS FRIENDLY AND COURTEOUS.
EATING DURING THE WEEK OFFERS A BETTER OPPORTUNITY TO ENJOY YOUR MEAL...FRIDAY AND SATURDAY NIGHT CAN BE A BIT NOISEY!
I went here for lunch and it was quite nice. There were not many people there at lunchtime, so service was super amazing! Hopefully it's the same at dinner time. The crispy veggie fries was delicious. My husband got the lamb and quite enjoyed it. The coffee was also very good!
It was our mistake to request outdoor seating because there were a lot to f mosquitos.
Ordered 2 classic mojito drinks - tasted like 7 up and mint. Got no limes even tho we asked for some. Both of us were certain there was no alcohol in the drinks. Couldn’t taste rum and for sure didn’t feel it. $10 drinks seem to be a scam. 2 of the 4 Food orders were ok but service was marginal, and only saw him at order, plate delivery, collecting our bill. Dinner came before the soup, so that was cancelled. One diner asked to substitute spinach for potatoes in meal, that showed up as a $7 up charge. $50 per person tab at the end of the night. Very aggravating about the bar items, and food not enough to warrant the $30+ a plate charge. Fish entrees came with 2 tiny potatoes and some olives, too much sauce, no salad. All in all - wanted to like this place, but no.
Wanted to eat here for a long time and finally made a reservation. I wasnt disappointed. The food was wonderful, the staff were attentive, the environment clean, and clearly 12 Islands is popular given the “energetic” noise level. I will be returning!
dined outside at 5 to 6:30 on a friday at that time few other people and tables were far apart tables filling up by 6:30 Very good bottle of Greek white wine Great Gigantes, lollipop lamb chops (recommended by server) and grilled seafood platter Delicious french fries accompanied chops Attentive well paced service, not rushed at all Def recommend
Excellent food. Great service. Highly recommended.
We have dined here many times. Last evening was most unsatisfactory. Our entrees arrived as we were eating our appetizers. We asked that they be taken back. When served again the entrees were not hot and so we asked that they be reheated. They came back warm but rather tasteless.
Our server did not seem to know what she was doing. The bus boy who was cleaning the tables was just dropping the dirty dishes in the bus box making for an uncomfortably loud noise.
The restaurant was not crowded so it was hard to understand why it was such an unsatisfactory dining experience.
We were a party of 6, he insisted on us ordering appetizers and dinners at one time. I asked him 5x you will wait at least 20-25 between apps and dinner; he said yes!!!! WE WERE NOT EVEN DONE WITH APPS AND OUR DINNERS CAME OUT!!!! ALL THE DISHES ON THE TABLE!! Very bad! The food is good!
We returned to introduce other friends to this lovely family oriented venue. None of us were disappointed. Rave revues again.
Food was delicious, halibut on risotto with asparagus. A nice white wine from Crete to top it off. Very nice meal.
12 Islands is an example of how good food, good service, and great ambiance can make a restaurant a star. I am always happy after a Greek meal from this gem in Stirling, NJ. Thank you Manny for keeping this place open and thriving during a time when other places fail.
Yes, you can have a special prime rib or terrific seafood. But you can also have an unbelievable gyro for the cost of a few tacos elsewhere. Enjoy the outdoor dining while the weather cooperates, or go inside and hear the raves from the other customers….just go!!!
Nice outdoor space and great food and drinks!
Just a good place to dine. The food is always good and it’s easy and relaxing.
Olivia waited on us. Excellent Service!!
The food was great.
That was our second visit, as we did not of existence.
Will be back, party of 4, on 26Aug.
It is Thursday. Olivia will you be there?
Delicious food and the outside ambience was very nice as it was a beautiful evening! Our server, Yanni was a delight, funny and friendly and accommodating! We will definitely be returning as the menu was extensive!
The dishes are always of good quality and never had reason to complain about service or ambience. The wine list is broad but a bit pricey for the quality.
