Hadn't been to Christos is several years, and had a craving for greek food. While our waitress was friendly, and provided good service, they didn't have our reservation on their sheet, even though we made it at least 3 or 4 hours ahead of time. We stood at the entrance waiting for someone to attend to us for probably 10 minutes, while wait staff walked right past us. But the host never paid attention. When he finally did, it took another 15 minutes before he seated us, even though there were plenty of empty tables. The food was good, but not exceptional.

If you like great Greek and Mediterranean food in a fine dining location, Christos can't be beat! The food is excellent, the ambiance tasteful, and the service top drawer -- Christos in Minnetonka will not disappoint!

Christos in Minnetonka is one of my top five (5) restaurants to eat dinner. The food is always outstanding, service attentive without being annoying, and good value for the money. This last time I had a cup of the lemon soup, and the Mediterranean Sea Bass fillet, served with a white wine sauce with capers. Also had a small Greek salad. Their flaming Saganaki cheese is one of my favorites, as is their dip sampler plate. Try dining here, and it will surely become one of your favorite locations, as well.

Although, we live a mile from Christos, that is only one reason we come here for our anniversary.

The menu has just about anything you can want for Greek cuisine. The lamb - any cut - is outstanding, and the best we've found in the Twin Cities.

We'll be back soon. I don't want to wait a year for our next anniversary.

My only gripe is, please, update the website menus - they do not match what is in this restaurant.

Wonderful evening! We had reservations for party of 6, and were seated immediately. Wait staff was well trained about the various dishes, and did an excellent job recommending dishes, keeping glasses full, and leaving us to sit and visit well after the meal had ended. We never felt rushed and had a great time. Food was all hot & prepared to perfection! We will be back!!

If you like Greek food, then try it. No one was thrilled with what they chose, so not sure if it was an off night or this is how it is. I had the chicken kebob and it came on a bed of white rice with 5 raisins in it - super bland. The kebob had 4 pieces of chicken, 2 pieces of green pepper, 1 piece of tomato and 1 piece of mushroom. Pretty bland.

The seating process was a little disorganized but once seated the service was great! We ordered a sampler platter which came with 5 different items and was a great value. The food tasted amazing and the waiter took the time to explain each item and his preferences. Overall I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for amazing food at a great price.

This is one of our favorite restaurants, food and service is usually good. Last night things were off, our server was very slow and it took the food much longer than we experienced in the past. My shrimp kabobs were cold and the veggies undercooked. Just hope it was an off night.

Love this place but think if it had an interior refresh it would be jam packed all the time.
Food is always amazing, service is fine, ambiance is lacking but it always delivers for getting Greek food fix.
Love it just think you could be rocking if you refreshed to keep up with other suburban hot spots, as your food is better!

Great place for mediterranean food! We went for a family dinner and it was nice and quiet. The Server was excellent and had suggestions to meet our needs. She also suggested the Cherry desert that was out of this world. The food came out in a timely manner which gave us time between courses to chat a bit, but not too long.
We had one Vegan with us and they were happy with the variety and quality of the food selected, the rest of had Gyro and chicken dishes that were excellent!
We will be sure to return soon

We brought some friends there after an escape room game and the fun continued at the restaurant for our friend's birthday. Our waiter was really nice, helpful,and funny and made the experience even more enjoyable because a couple of our friends had never had Greek good and he made some food suggestions that they just loved. It was a great time and we will be back!

The food is always great at Christos and the produce in the salads is always the freshest. Ive been ordering things I have not had before lately and though I'd not had them before and didn't know what to expect - I have yet to be disappointed. My favorite is still the Oregano Chicken.

We enjoy eating at christos. On this day, however, we made an open table reservation but the host did not pick up the reservation since the restaurant was busy. Therefore, we had to wait a half hour beyond our reservation to be seated.
We will definitely eat there again but might pick a time and day when the restaurant isn’t as busy.

I had a Reservation for 7 pm. Wasn't seated until 730. When I asked the host about the delay he became defensive and accused me of holding his feet to the fire, blamed too many reservations through open table and walked away. Our server was great but a host that can't manage reservations has no business in a restaurant.
