Ilios Noche - (Rea Village Shopping Center) Ratings and Reviews
I really never leave a review as I think it is tough to operate a business and everyone can have an off day, but this time I feel like I need to for others. We went to this restaurant after reading reviews that food is awesome and service was declining. Our experience was exactly the opposite. The service was great, but the food was AWFUL, BEYOND AWFUL. No way I would recommend spending any money here.
Although my wife and I live in New York, we visit family in North Carolina during Christmas, a time that coincides with our anniversary. We have celebrated our anniversary at Ilios Noche the last two years, 2016 and 2017. Each time we have had the same reaction: the food is excellent but the service is only fair: ten minutes until someone took our drink order, another ten minutes until our wine arrived, another five minutes until we were able to order our appetizers, and another 20 minutes before they came. When this happened to us in 2016 we chalked it up as just a one time occurrence, but when it happened again...well, it is a pattern. But (again) the food was truly superb and we left happy/
Ilios Noche continues to be one of our favorite spots! The food is consistently good and fresh. The restaurant is loud and especially when there is live music. Service starts out good but seems to fizzle out. We asked for bread several times and never received it. Empty water glasses should never happen at a restaurant of this caliber..
We drove to Ilios Noche from Mint Hill- it was my birthday and I was looking forward to the salmon sandwich. Even though it is not on the menu anymore, the park road location will still make it for me. This time, our server wouldn’t even ask the kitchen to make it for me. I was really disappointed I didn’t get to eat that meal.
While food and service was excellent, our dinner was ruined by cigarette smoke smell from the outside. We were seated in front of the restaurant close to the front door and next to the windows and the cigarette smoke smell was strong. We could see there were people smoking outside to the side in front of the windows, Whether the smell came through the front doors or through the windows/ window wall is unclear. Will go back but request a table away from the windows.
Had lunch this past Saturday and was surprised to see the place almost empty. We. Ame for lunch because of the generous offering to Veterans. Buy an entree and the vet eats free. A very nice gesture.
While our food was very (Ilios salad with chicken and an Ilios pita with chicken) took 30 minutes to prepare. I found this odd since there were very few patrons. In any bet it was a very nice lunch. A big thank you to Ilios for honoring vets.
Food was very good as usual. Server was fine but bar service was extremely slow. We received our appetizers before our drinks showed up. My wife's coffee after dinner was stone cold. Unacceptable. They definitely need to do something to improve the drink/bar service. It really negatively impacted the whole evening.
Although the food was very good, the service was too fast. We ordered wine and the food was served within 5 minutes. When we ordered dessert, we were told it would take 15 minutes, which we said was fine because we could finish our bottle of wine during that time. The cherry cobbler came out in 10 minutes, and it wasn't hot in the center - evidently they took it out of the oven too soon - again trying to speed up our dinner. Then our check was brought while we were still eating our dessert. Just felt like they were trying to get us out as soon as possible. What I didn't understand is that there were still tables available, so I'm not sure why they were rushing us out. If the service had been less rushed, I might have gone back to try other dishes. But now it is off of my list of restaurants that I will go to.
Always excellent food here. We originally were a party of two, but two friends surprised us and joined in. There was no issue with the hostess spontaneously changing it to a party of four - pretty good for a Friday night!
Had lunch on Monday. Rather quiet in the dining room. We got our usual lunch which is an Ilios salad with grilled chicken and chicken oita with Greek fries. The food is consistent into presenatation and flavor. Ilios Service is always top notch. In fact they have the best server in Charlotte, Melissa who is a personable, professional and engaging person.
Great food...especially loved the beet and kale salad and the charred octopus appie! I had the rissotto and it was fantastic! Everyone ordered something different at the table and I had a bite of all...ALL were exceptional. I brought a special bottle of wine and the waiter gladly served from that with a corkage fee. Love this place!
