Illios Noche NEVER disappoints! Great food, awesome servers, terrific bartenders and management is always so friendly! Went there most recently with four couples and had a blast! Shared lots of yummy appetizers ... one was better then the next (Angry Shrimp a definite!). Dinner was excellent as well and the cocktails were amazing.

Very disappointing. Server only interested in pushing bill higher. Food not good at all - one dish had to be sent back, one pasta dish that was over cooked and under flavored

Great service. Reliably good food. I like being able to get a reservation on the weekend. Ilios salad with salmon is one of my favorite light options. One of my friends had the haddock with shrimp and citrus risotto and loved it.

Ilios Noche has good food consistently; however, they seem to have added more tables since the last time I was there which affects the ambiance to the point that you feel encroached upon by other tables. It's just not as comfortable or private. Also, the lights are quite bright (reservation time 7:00pm) and made me feel like I was in my brightly lit kitchen at home rather than enjoying a cozy meal out. Finally, the acoustics were so bad that it was hard to talk with people at our own table. Even the waitress had to ask us to repeat what we said to her numerous times. I feel terrible speaking so negatively, but I would have liked to have known what to expect before I booked a reservation for a birthday dinner celebration there. I will say that the food was delicious though.

Mothers Day Prix Fixe Menu. Options were excellent and the service was excellent considering it was a very busy holiday. My husband had a new lamb option. I'm a pescatarian and enjoyed very much the scallops on mushroom risotto. We dine here fairly often and not disappointed by the tasty food and pleasant ambiance.

I took my mother to llios Noche for Mother’s Day and she really enjoyed herself. Pax was an awesome waiter that had extensive knowledge in the diverse cuisine available and all of his recommendations were phenomenal! We really enjoyed our lunch! Ask for Pax on your next visit, you’ll be glad that you did!

While it was Mother’s Day Brunch we knew it would be busy. Arrived early, table ready within 15 mins of reservation. Menu was limited, portions tiny. $25 fixed menu, not advised when confirming reservation 3 days prior. Starters were served quickly as were drinks. Main entrees took 50 mins after starters were finished. Again, to be expected on holiday. Main complaint is portion size. Lamb chops - 2 chops only. Kid sized portions, scoop of potatoes. We left hungry after paying $200 for 5 people and $310 for other 6 adults. Very disappointing, no sign of manager checking with tables. Servers working very hard. Bar staff too.

I completely understand the limited menu on Mother's Day. I do not understand the tiny portions that were not worth the price; especially when it came to the salad. Lettuce is a pretty cheap thing, why skimp? I love the meals there but I will not go back on a prix fix meal day. It just isn't worth it.

Went there for Mother’s Day. The server was dedicated, but they were under staffed. The meal was supposed to be a meal that featured chicken, but it was mostly bread and.potatoes. The food was of a good quality, but in the wrong proportions.

Very very busy!! Mother’s Day!! We had a reservation and still had to wait 25 mins mins for our table. The restaurant was very noisy and waiter, while very nice and accommodating, was slow and looked like he was running himself. Maybe he had too many tables! I’m not sure the food was great as usually.

Good timely service. Had scollops and the veal chop special (a bit pricey).
An interesting Old Fashion.
Noise was a little quieter sitting in the back away from the service station and front door.

My son was in from out of town, and since Ilios Noche was a favorite of his when he lived in Charlotte, we had to plan a meal there. A visit was enjoyed with tasty food and and the service was excellent. Drinks were refilled promptly, though it took quite awhile to get the desserts.

Food and service were very good. We've been coming to Ilios Noche for years, but I must point out a few items for improvement: the booth we were in (front room, 2nd to back before curtain separation) was in need of replacement (large hole in ripped rug underneath table), table top wood had multiple chips, back wall was dirty with food/drink splatters as well as eyesore furniture bumpers, and one of guests received a cracked glass. These are easy things to fix by management. The restaurant is looking a little worn overall, so it's time to make some minor repairs to bring the restaurant back to its original sparkle.

We have been to this restaurant a couple of times and it has never disappointed. The calamari and shrimp appertizers were fantastic - looked to be freshly prepared. the greek meat dishes were hot delicious. The lamb chops were done just right for our children. All in all a very good dining experience for the whole family.

Our server had too many tables. My wife and I felt like we were getting the “crumbs” of her time. We actually had four servers. The Bloody Mary’s were not very good. Thankfully we were not charged. Water was not replenished. The noise level made it difficult to hear the servers and more difficult to have a conversation. I had great lunch at this location earlier in the week and I was excited to share the experience with my wife. It was disappointing.

Our experience of going there for lunch on Sundays has been very poor. We are not graded by the hostess in a friendly way and the servers are no better. We get the feeling we’re bothering them by being there.

Atmosphere was lively, loud, fun, and inviting. Menu pricing IS mid-grade expensive but we reviewed the menu ahead of time and knew this. I didn't give 5 stars to Service not because of our server who was great. But the Bar and kitchen was slooooow. Our reservation was at 6:30 on a Wednesday night. When we left it was a little after 9pm - and not due to our staying longer for social reasons. Appetizers, drinks, and food (although delish) was just that slow coming out to us. And the coconut cake was out-of-this-world when tried on another occasion. Some of us got it thinking we'd have the same experience but sadly Ilios must have changed the cake ingredients, texture and sizing (used to be 2 or 3 layer). Oh well - our group had fun though!
