First of all, fantastic service by Dmitri - thank you! My friends chose two good dishes - the whitefish and the greek salad. My wife and I were less impressed by the whole sea bass (not a lot of fish) and the Diane salad, which was heavy on the arugula and light on the rest of the ingredients. The rice pudding though, was delicious.
Thank you for putting our party of 12 in you private room. It was perfect for our two families and our annual Thanksgiving week reunion!
Food and service were excellent. We can always count on a great dining experience at Avli.
Lovely decor - much nicer than it used to be. But the food - far inferior to what it used to be.
Great local restaurant.Excellent and attentive service. Well prepared and attractively served food.
Great location - brunch items a bit limited and bland. Great service and nice ambience - not a good brunch menu
We can always count on Avli for great food, it never disappoints.
Terrific dinner place to go to Monday to Thursday
Cozy place for a neighbor to drop in for a great meal with a wonderful wine
I love Avli!
Good food, efficient service, and a nice atmosphere.
Our choices at Avli were better than last time. The gyros was moist and the pita baked. My pan fried cod and zucchini and skodalia were good. The lamb burger was excellent. Calamari in risotto with shrimp was undercooked. The tasting dessert was miniscule compared to our last visit. This is still the best Greek restaurant on the North Shore, but we wish it had the lamb kabob again, our all time favorite.
The was very good. The bronzino could have been better. It was overcooked. I would like to return and try more of the appetizers.
Had a great meal! Love it here.
We have eaten at Avli many times and it was always our go to place if we were going to a show in Evanston. But Friday night we had a marginal experience. Several people ordered gyros entree that was less than average- meat not hot, plate had chopped onion, one slice of tomato, meat and peta. Not appealing or attractive. We also shared a greek salad that was very skimpy on feta, olives and missing anchovies which waiter never offered and you have to pay extra for them. Only the zucchini chips were good. What is going on with this place?
We have been dining at Avli for many years, but found the lamb burger under cooked and the pita under the gyros soggy. We are disappointed.
We took our family to Avli and had a fantastic dinner. Everything was perfect. We always enjoy eating at Avli.
Delicious doesn't describe the food selections adequately. I had the shrimp kabobs, which were done perfectly. I hated string beans until I met the ones at Avli, they are not to be missed. Our entire party, enjoyed the meal immensely and will return. I've had catered parties there also, and some of my guests who previously did not care for Greek cuisine, have returned many times now.
Our dinner along with the service was perfect. Looking forward to returning soon.
Food was excellent. Atmosphere was great. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
The ambiance at Avli is always pleasant. It's one of the few restaurants I know where the noise level is tolerable. The lamb salad, with a generous portion of favorable meat, is simply delicious. The whitefish is good too. Because the restaurant is large, it's a place we can go without a reservation and almost always get in.
Always enjoy dining here, food excellent. The service was not that great, which is unfortunate, we always love coming in. The waiter, I guess forgot us, it was a Sunday and not very crowded. I dined with a friend and she was not asked if he could get her something else to drink, disappointed. Food was good, and he was nice.
The best! Always good food, excellent service and great value.
Loved it! Great food & atmosphere. Only downside was it was noisy but loved the patio setting.
Very enjoyable Labor Day patio dinner. The zucchini chips with Skordalia were excellent as always and I enjoyed my chicken kabobs.
Terrific food and service. Very cute outdoor patio.
We always love Avli. This time they served a delicious brown yeast bread in addition to the traditional white Greek bread. It was outstanding and we couldn’t stop eating it!
Food was good, not any better than that. The meatballs were very tough, green beans were over cooked, martini came without an olive.
Service was excellent at first, when restaurant was nearly empty. Later, as restaurant filled up, even though there was plenty of staff, service slowed considerably. We waited 15 minutes for our bill.
The fish dish was dry.
The seafood burned
The salad less than expected
We were disappointed would not come back
Good food good service. Little too noisy
The only reason for a 4/5 star on service was that we tried to get our server’s attention for many minutes to get our check. But, yes, he was very busy.
Restaurant is very authentic // food was delicious and a great value. Our waiter seemed distracted but overall was fine
This North Shore gem was recommended to me by someone who would never steer me wrong. If you love fresh, authentic, homemade Greek food, you need to eat here. EVERYTHING we tried was amazing. From the apps to entrees. The homemade Gyro will ruin you for life as you'll never be able to eat any other Gyro.
Taramosalata, Tirokafteri & Skordalia - perfection. AND they have gluten-free pita which my daughter says is amazing. Moussaka & Chicken Kabobs - fantastic. This will become one of our regular spots. Stop reading and go there!
Nice location, excellent food, outstanding service. This was a family dinner and we all enjoyed it. I am going back with friends next week to your Chicago location.
This restaurant was exceptional when it first open up. The food quality and service is horrible now. Would not recommend
Great service and food as usual, I wanted to introduce our friends
to Avli, and was not disappointed, they loved it. Staff was able to accommodate our table request and also quickly whisked away a drink that didn’t taste quite right and replaced it with an excellent Moscow mule!
The food was great. The service was excellent. We sat outside and had a very enjoyable time.
Dont miss the outstanding roasted artichokes!
So good as always. The owner/ manager is always so nice & professional as are the waiters. We love this resource kids love it & our grandchildren love it!!
