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.
Food was not as good as usual. And service was a bit slower than usual.
I am a big fan or Christakis. My wife and I have been going there for years. They know who we are and give us great service. Lamb Gyro platter and Moussaka are excellent. "Trio" appetizer is very good too.
We love everything about Christakis. We pick-up food to-go more often than dining there, but always enjoy the experience. The wine selection is enormous, the ambiance on the outdoor patio is great, service is always excellent, & the guitar player adds nice background music. The food is fantastic! Love having this gem in our neighborhood. Wish the parking was better, but we always manage to find a spot.
Terrific. The food is fantastic. Quaint restaurant with nice music. Highly recommended.
Excellent Greek food. I have dined at the best Greek restaurants in NYC and Chicago. The food here is just as good for a quarter of the price! You feel like there are grandmothers cooking the food in the kitchen. It was a great evening of enjoying food!
First time here tonight and it is obvious they go out of their way to make you feel welcome from the hostesses to the management. This along side excellent greek food equals a great dining experience. Will surely be back.
We ate on the patio with the fountain going and the heat lamp to take care of the chill in the air. The guitar music was wonderful as was the food. I had the lamb chops and they were huge the avaolemona (Greek lemon egg soup) was the best. Their pita is so good warm with spices which we enjoyed with the trio
This was our first time trying this restaurant and it was fantastic. The food was outrageously delicious. Frankly, I didn't expect it to be so good. It exceeded my expectations.
I read reviews that said the service was outstanding but, truthfully, I would have to say it was as expected but, not outstanding. While the service was very good, I have very high standards based on my experience at another restaurant in the area which no other restaurants has ever come closer to.
I will definitely return to this restaurant because the for was great.
Always a wonderful dining experience! Everything from the ambiance to service and, of course, the food are a treat!
This is an Authentic family owned and run gem. the food is fresh and tasty and the service is very attentive.
Probably be best restaurants in Orange County, definitely the best restaurant in Tustin. The food is sensational and the service, second to none. Our weekly dining place.
The food here is excellent and is a nice change to what is offered by most other dining options in the area. It is great place for a date or something formal, but it would not be out of place to bring well behaved children.
What an excellent evening!! We had a table on their patio which oozes charm with the plants, lighting and gurgling fountain. Perfect wine suggestions from the knowledgeable staff! We shared almost all the appetizers along a salad and souvlaki. Everything tastes freshly made and authentic!! Memorably delicious!
This is definitely one of our favourite restaurants. The lamb chops were perfect in every way as was the calamari
Fair quality of Greek cuisine ....
Love the local and family atmosphere. The meatball appetizer was excellent as was the authentic villager salad. The sea bass/lamb chops special was very good although the last several visits we have experienced undercooked lamb chops. Although ordered medium rare they often come out practically raw. That needs some attention. The t-bone special was very good according to my wife. Greek Cabernet was quite good and reasonably priced. Dessert of bacclava was quite good (and on the house).
Always enjoy the food and hospitality. Had the stuffed pepper special as a change of pace and the meatball appetizer. Excellent as always
Great ambiance. They usually have a mandolin player that sets a great mood. Food is a 4/5, with my favorites being the hummus, saganaki, gyro plates, and lamb. Definitely has an authentic feel to it.
We were welcomed warmly and received great service throughout our meal. The server recommended the dolmades, which turned out to be the best I've ever tried. All of us in our group thoroughly enjoyed our entrées. We were offered complimentary baklava for dessert to cap off an excellent meal
Tried this place out. Service was immediate and consistently good. Food was great. Outdoor patio was so nice in the evening. Will definitely return!
Really great food, all quite delicious. Mezzes delectable. Three of the four in our party had lamb chops...cooked to perfection and with a fresh green salad. Hope to get back there soon, having discovered a very worthwhile spot.
Disapointed with the special we ordered,but that was our fault.Should have investigated more. The flaming cheese and stuffed grape leaves were exelent.
Wonderful experience for my husband and I to celebrate our anniversary! I'd been years ago and it was my husband's first time. Ou server was friendly, personable, and knowledgeable. and even surprised us with an anniversary desert complete with candles. The wine and food brought us right back to our honeymoon in Santorini.
Thank you for such a wonderful evening Christakis!
We recently relocated to SoCal and have been in search of a really good Greek restaurant. Although there is a restaurant closer to our home, we found this to be well worth to 35 minute drive. Excellent menu. The lamb chops were fantastic. Our waiter, Austin, was very good as well. Will ask for him when we return. Although the patio is small it is quaint and comfortable. Make sure you include your request when you book your reservation.
Excellent neighborhood find
We've been going to Christakos for a long time and love the family atmosphere. In this visit the cooking was the best we ever had from the meatball appetizer to the Greek salad, to lamb chops and the shrimp special. Having just returned from Crete and Athens, it was like reliving the experience.
They always have great recommendations for food and wine. I have never been disappointed in a meal!
Great service! We love this restaurant. Excellent food
The staff is always attentive and the food is fresh and tasteful.
Lamb is outstanding as is most of the other traditional Greek dishes.
