We absolutely love dining at Christakis! Whenever my family is visiting this is a must go on their list! We have taken friends here as well on numerous occasions and truly enjoy our meal every time we go!
My family's favorite restaurant! Always a pleasure to dine her. It is very comfortable and the servers and staff remember the regulars.
Four friends and I decided to finally try this long-standing and rumored to be AMAZING local Greek place. We were celebrating my birthday and it was PERFECT. From the ambience, live light guitar music, outstanding service, delicious food, wide variety to choose from, and the impressive wine collection, everything just came together perfectly! Highly recommended to any Greek food lovers, or anyone looking for an intimate dining experience!
The food is delicious. Service was very good.
Warm and inviting atmosphere
Wonderful!! Delicious! Service superb! Food presentation and flavor a 10+ live guitar music.. little white lights swagged. Small quaint place of tables and chairs. The owner and waiters care about you. Treated like friends! It was our first time. Patio with heaters looks fun too! We brought our young son and he loved the homemade pita and Gyro. My husband had pork chop and I had the chicken stuffed with spinach. The lemon potato wedge is special, yummy rice and the green beers spectacular!
Element food and wine, very good customer service, and very nice restaurants, I had the rack of lamb it was delicious!!!
Great Service and recommendations.
excellent food and service.==Great friends and wonderful stories shared with the restaurant staff.
The Quail was both delicious and unusual. They literally melted in your mouth, bursting with Greek spices. Also had grape leaves for an appetizer, nice blend of filling and almost bitter grape leaves. Grea place for a casual meal if you are tired of the same-old same-old.
The staples of Greek cuisine are well represented here. The mousaka is flavorful, with a creamy, light bechamel on top and a savory/sweet spice mixture permeating the meat. The hummus dip is smooth, lacking the grainy texture that often dissuades me from ordering this appetizer, and the pita bread is a puffy delight of crisp and soft; perfect for dragging through the tzatziki. A very enjoyable dining experience.
Excellent as always
As always, amazing food, amazing service and we always feel like part of this great family.
The food was delicious! We
Exceeded my expectations!
Always the best Greek food around that I don't have to cook myself. The staff is always prompt and helpful with everything.
Keep up the good work.
Had a wonderful seafood dinner!!!loved the service and timing!
Wonderful meal, service and ambiance and amazingly talented musician. Everyone enjoyed the evening!
My husband and I wanted to go to an authentic Greek meal with services that know the food well. We told our server (who was the owners son) that we will be in Greece this summer and wanted to explore more of the cuisine. He knew exactly what we should order...the rack of lamb was awesome and my husband got the shrimp that had some spice to it. Even down to the beer and wine suggested which would go well and what we will find in Greece. Must try
My husband and I had the most amazing experience today at Christakis! We loved the food! So amazing!! Our server, Mike, was on top of it! They had lovely live guitar playing in the background. I highly recommend Christakis for some genuine Greek cuisine!
The food was excellent, I had something called vaidaki (lamb) it was very good. My wife had filet mignon and she was very happy with it
Been going here for years. Some of the best Greek food in Orange County.
I’ve been coming here since the 90’s. Love this place! The food is always hot, fresh and delicious! Service is impeccable and the atmosphere is pleasant. I would recommend Christaki’s to anyone looking for a great meal and experience. Mike, Vasilis and staff will take care of you! Keep an eye out for their wine pairings, those events are awesome; great food and wine!
Great service! Speedy, friendly, and so so delicious.
One of our favorite spots
Amazing! Such an adorable patio. Live music inside perfect noise level. Food was amazing.
We were looking for a nice place to celebrate our wedding anniversary with friends and this was the perfect spot for the great service and fantastic food. The music was just right to sit and enjoy an exquisite glass of wine with good friends. The staff went beyond the norm and out of their way in order to make us feel comfortable and enjoy the special moment.
I have been looking for a good gyro in Orange County and was so relieved to find Cristakis. The owner talked to us for a while about his mom who is Greek. Such a great find! Big recommend!
We enjoyed celebrating a friend's birthday here. The Avgolemono - Greek Egg-Lemon Chicken Soup was delicious and the Villager's salad was full of everything Greek. Our waiter was attentive and our experience there was delightful!
A favorite local spot and a wonderful greek restaurant! Service is personal and the wine list always offers unique options.
The owners are THERE onsite! Which for most Foodies is a HUGE factor!!
Everyone is very gracious and accommodating. Live Classical guitar only adds to the ambience.
Appetizers are fab! Main courses do not disappoint!!
New Years Eve
I’m so glad I found this restaurant. Just moved to the area and have been searching for a good Greek place. The food was fantastic and we can’t wait to return.
Been coming here about 20 years. Absolutely love this place. The service, food and attentiveness of the staff have been consistent all these years. I’m partial to their lamb but everything is very tasty, definitely try the lemon soup. Appetizers are fantastic and the baklava is worth the calories. Definitely recommend this place for great Greek food, service and atmosphere.
Great restaurant, great service
This place is a sure thing. The chicken souvlaki was tender and perfectly cooked. The trio appetizer platter was delicious. Almost everyone at the table ordered the lamb gyro dinner because it is so good. We tried the Greek fries for the first time and were delighted. The hostesses and wait staff are always friendly and welcoming. We can’t wait to go back.
We had a wonderful meal. Service was spot on. The waiter made excellent recommendations. Food was delicious. The lamb was amazing! Great little place in Tustin.
Always one of my favorite places to go. The best avoglemeno soup in the world! The gyros, pork chop and lamb chops are outstanding as well. It's great to start a special occasion with the saganaki!
A top drawer family owned and operated Greek Restaurant . Good food, good ambiance .
Food was very good, service excellent, but Music was way too loud. Very hard to hear conversations. I appreciate the music, but it should have been much softer. We were sitting outside and it was still too loud. I wouldn't consider this a quiet or romantic venue, because he of the music volume.
The atmosphere was very nice and tranquil for my friends and I during lunch. The staff was very professional and knowledgeable about the menu. The food was very good and came out hot. I really have to say I enjoyed the food and experience.
