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!

Excellent food and wine and atmosphere.
The Sea Bass was phenomenal. The Chef came and discussed details on serving it whole or deboning. Highly recommend!

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.

Felt like we were rushed. Waiter was too attentive if that’s possible. Didn’t really have time to figure out what we wanted to drink and he kept coming by. Food came out so quickly that I hadn’t finished my salad yet. We were in and finished in less than 40 minutes. Would have thought they were pushing us through to use the table again but when we were ready to pay, our waiter was nowhere to be seen so we had to wait for him to come out and take our card. Overall decent experience but not the relaxing date night I had been looking for.

Our waitress was not on her game that night. As example we didn’t get water until after appetizers arrived and while I sat with nothing to drink asked one of our party if he wanted another beer while ignoring two of us. My grouper was not flavorful at all and pretty disappointed overall. Your other location is substantially better.

You need a less expensive glass of wine! $9.00 and above is the norm in this town and it is beyond me!

Service was horrifically slow. Terrible.

Our server Alex, was outstanding - great recommendations and great service delivery.

Timelines of service was brutal. Sat 20 minutes after reservation time and 2 courses took 90 minutes. Unacceptable and ruins the experience.

This has been a go to for years for us. I’m hoping it was just an off night. We saw our waitress literally 3x total. The pizza was undercooked and the shrimp were ordered blackened, they weren’t, and not thoroughly cooked either. We will go back, and hoping this was just a one time event

Very loud. Server was not at all personable and spilled water in my lap. Food was mediocre with the exception of the zucchini chips. Not nearly as good as it used to be.
