12 Islands of Stirling
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.
Horrible experience. There were flies everywhere in the restaurant / dining area. The waiters/ owner were doing nothing to improve the situation and flies were swarming our meal we had to take our entrees to go and eat them at home. Would never go back.
Always terrific! Service is uniformly excellent and the food never disappoints. It's our go-to place for the best of Greek cuisine and a fun, comfortable evening.
Excellent food and service. The lamb chops and zucchini fritters were particularly delicious!
I live 10 minutes from this restaurant and never knew it was there. We sat outside but admittedly a little warm. I had a mixed drink from their custom menu and the Aegean was delicious. Started with their shrimp and chorizo appetizer and then had the octopus for dinner. Both were very good. I do wish the octopus had a little more char to it but it was perfectly cooked. The shrimp appetizer was a very generous portion too. Even their pita and sauces were delicious. I will be back.
The octopus and fried calamari are very close to what I used to eat in Greece. A great place to experience a taste of Greece.
The food is terrific, as is the service. We've been there 3 times and plan to eat there again!
As always, the food is outstanding and the wait staff is very attentive. You never feel rushed. It’s a very comfortable and enjoyable atmosphere.
Wonderful Mediterranean food! Staff so friendly snd excellent service!
So glad we found this place! Excellent food--I had the branzini and it was cooked to perfection. And that sauce--so good! The wait staff was fantastic--friendly and super helpful. It was a great experience.
Excellent food and atmosphere. Friendly service. If you like grilled octopus, you have to get it here.
One of the absolute best restaurants in NJ! We've never been disappointed.
12 Islands is our go-to Greek restaurant. It’s 11 miles from our house and worth the drive! The wait staff is attentive, friendly and the food is consistently great! Andcthey have nice cocktails! I highly recomment it.
Mango Salsa Salmon special was very good, and HOIRINI pork chop w/lemon potato is still a favorite.
This has been a neighborhood favorite of ours for years. The food has gotten better and better, as has the service. The fresh fish and Greek specialties are excellent, and the bar is well-stocked with all but the highest-end wine selections. Some of the menu items seem a little overpriced, but quantities are generous and quality is always high.
High school graduation celebration and everything was perfect
12 Islands is always fantastic. The service was excellent, as usual. The wait staff is professional and courteous and generous. The occasion always feels festive and welcoming. We sat outside for the first time, and service was just as prompt and attentive as when we have been in the main dining room. The food was superb, as usual, especially the salads and desserts (yogurt with dried cherry sauce was simple yet amazing), though my vegetarian moussaka was delicious, too. The wine list has excellent Greek wine choices, and the prices for all are reasonable. We've never been disappointed here.
Attentive waiter; good food
Fresh, perfectly cooked fish and some outstanding Greek specialties keep us coming back for more. Friendly service. It’s very popular.
Excellent Greek food and great service. Whole sea bass was wonderful and the food was very authentic.
We thought the food and ambiance was reflective of a Greek taverna. The seafood was very good. We had grilled octopus as an app and salmon and falafel for meals. I’ve been quite a few times and will definitely go again.
We eat outside on a quiet Monday night. The tent and furniture are sturdy and comfortable. Three of us had different kinds of grilled whole fish (a specialty there), which were simply delicious. Each couple shared a salad for a first course, as we knew we'd be eating a big fish and a side! The waiter helped us with a Greek wine that complemented the fish well.
the food is always good and the service always friendly. A great local place with fresh and tasty fish.
Fresh ingredients cooked well. A good approximation of a Mediterranean spot. The flavors are near perfect. The whole grilled fish is especially good. Greek specialties are delicious. Nice wine list.
Great evening of good food
First time here and it was for a birthday celebration which they very nicely honored. Great service and the food was excellent. They have an extensive menu with lots of Greek food to choose from. We definitely will be back for dinner.
Great food. Lovely staff
One of my go to places! Food is always fantastic, quick service and a friendly attentive staff. Can't say enough good things about 12 Islands
From the moment we entered the restaurant, we were greeted with a friendly, wonderful waitstaff. I was with three friends, and we had the most delightful lunch. The food was outstanding with very generous portions! We will definitely be back frequently, as this was an exceptional experience!
Enjoy the greek ambiance there. It was also empty inside on Sunday at 1PM, which is NOT the norm at dinner time..
So many things to try!! Great cocktail menu too. Friendly service and attentive. Love the feel here- expect to be cared for and served outstanding Greek food.
This is a wonderful restaurant for a night out, either a date spot, a spot to have dinner with friends, or to take the entire family.
The appearance of the restaurant is deceptive. We had originally thought that the restaurant would be more upscale and were surprised to see patrons in t-shirts and sanders; however, the food was absolutely fantastic. Whoever the chef is, they’re doing God’s work. I felt like I was in Santorini. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys typical and classical Mediterranean and Greek food!
Went on Mother’s Day. Food tasted good. Restaurant was in over their heads and couldn’t handle the crowds. Not sure who our server was as no one single person said hello or introduced themselves. Ordered lemon potatoes and apparently they ran out so I got undercooked, cold “fries.” One server said that they ran out of lemon potatoes and that it was bad because they were too busy. Ironic given restaurants have been begging for business due to being shut down during a pandemic. Hopefully this restaurant just had a bad night.
I don’t know that I’d go back because even if the food was perfect, the servers weren’t wearing masks when serving or when they were in the kitchen. I could see them raising and lowering their masks each time they went in and out of the kitchen. And there wasn’t hand sanitizer or a hand washing station that they used each time.
Party of 5, every plate we ordered was cleaned off. The baklava cheesecake dessert special was to die for. Can’t wait to come back!
Great food and service!! We ate in the tent, and it was very pleasant
