We (2 couples) were very pleased with the selection options. Meals were well prepared, ample enough to take home and colorful. I cam recommend the drier of the two Greek wines. Reasonably priced and tasted like a nice cabernet with a good dose of merlot. Service was friendly and helpful in refining our selections.

The restaurant has take steps to dampen the noise which is noticeable and appreciated.

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!

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.

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!

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!

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.
