I made reservation through Open Table app, but restaurant didn’t have it. Fortunately, the hostess was able to accommodate us.

It’s always perfect at Ilios Noche. From the starters to the desserts, the attention to detail is superb. If you haven’t tried it, what are you waiting for?

Service and food were very good and what you would expect. In the lounge, next to the dinning room, the entertainment for the evening was very loud. Extremely hard to have a conversation with the people at your table.

The food is so consistently good here. Services is always friendly and as fast as could be expected depending on the time of day. Great at working with my celiac dining restrictions. Delicious options and great place to meet with friends and grab a quick bit or linger for an entertaining evening.

I always recommend Ilios Noche to friends!! I met a very dear friend there and had identical dishes, ribs with slaw...
The ribs were fall off the bone fantastic, it was quiet because we had a late lunch, and we were able to catch up and really enjoy our lunch...

Wonderful casual neighborhood place for well done mediterranean food. I had the lasagna which was outstanding. Meatballs and appetizer of bread and spreads were all very good. Service was fair but it was a busy night and our server was working a lot of tables

Good food and beverage choices. Two of us enjoyed the scallops and wine by the glass another person in the party enjoyed the crazy lasagne and beer and the fourth enjoyed the specialty chicken dish and a different variety of wine.

Smaller than the other one at Quail Hollow and food was somewhat lackluster in comparison. Calamari was just ok. Stuffed peppers appetizer were the best think all night. Bone-in pork chop (special) was decent but nothing special (especially for the price), though the gnocchi that it came with were good. Greek "fries" were inedible they were so stale and flavorless. We'd rather drive a bit farther to enjoy the ambiance and more consistent quality of food at the other location.

Food was excellent. Our server was over worked and probably has too many tables assigned to him. Wine selection was very good, especially by the glass. Cocktails were terrible. Our drinks had a secondary taste which is usually the case when either the wrong brand was used or the shakers were not properly rinsed and carried the previous taste into our drinks.

Our server, Kelly, was awesome! The food was delicious. Wine perfect. My only issue is there was a networking event for another business right next to our table. They were quite loud; we had trouble hearing each other converse. Definitely will be returning for dinner soon!

Please consider putting some type of clear shield/noise reducer around the patio. Wonderful to sit outside, but with the parking lot traffic and all the traffic on Providence Road, would be nice to have it a more quiet

I was at Ilios for wine and dinner with a friend. There was an event going on behind a curtain that was VERY loud. They had a microphone which made it impossible for us to have a conversation. We spoke with our waitress and she said the manager offered to move us to the bar. They would have had to move us to the parking lot to reduce the noise. Wish we had left when we saw the drawn curtain!!

Very crowded Saturday night. Made a last minute reservation. Not sure why Open Table allowed to book every 15 mins when the restaurant was packed and not able to keep up. Several frustrated customers with reservations waiting extra 30 mins. We were seated 10 minutes after reservation which was fine, we understand the dilemma. The problem I see is that Open Table is misleading - many open reservations with a jam packet place? Why offer reservations if you can’t handle the rush? Seems odd to me.

Very slow service. Had to ask to order twice and for two additional round of drinks. Super loud, needed to be moved to be able to hear each ither speak. They tried to recover - make it right after we shared our concern. We weren’t in a hurry but it took 20 minutes to get a drink order.

The perfect spot to have a great meal and conversation. Apps of stuffed grape leaves and falafel were delicious. I had the vegetable plate which I have enjoyed in the past. Great wine selection complements the flavorful food!

My friend ordered the Lamb shank meal. when it arrived it was a round pile of something and looked nothing like a lamb shank (large bone with meat on it). He as disappointed and sent it back. Meanwhile my meal arrived and was wonderful. By time his new order (skirt steak) my meal was over and done with.

The noise level was unacceptable for a fine dining restaurant. The will not be back.
