So very sad to say my favorite NYC Greek restaurant just CLOSED as of 11/27/17
Very unhappy that they are closing. We have been going to this restaurant for many years. It is the best Greek restaurant on the Upper East Side.
It was the worst Greek salad we ever had. The dressings on both the salad and for the fish were oily and tasteless. The salad had no flavor and was dripping in dressing. The fish was pretty good, but we were not given very many vegetables (which we asked for instead of rice). The bread was just ok.
Octopus could be more tender
Great places to get together with friends. Good food and a place you can actually talk and hear each other.
Food was delicious, we especially loved the dips. Taramasalata was amazing. Fried zucchini chips were great. Grilled shrimp also excellent. A great neighborhood restaurant.
This restaurant never disappoints-fresh delicious seafood and wonderful Greek dishes-Don’t miss the donuts!
I have dined here often since it's in the neighborhood and have never had a bad meal. On the contrary, I have always enjoyed everything completely. The starter spreads are so tasty and come with a basket of tasty, warm pita. We usually order a whole fish of the day that is delicious no matter how it is prepared. I like the simple grilled option. The grilled shrimp are perfect, and we recently tried the baked shrimp dish that was wonderful surprise. Service is attentive and prices are reasonable.
The best whole Branzino I've had in a long time, very good value. Giant Prawns enjoyed by 2. Reasonable wine list.
Good and fresh meal , quite environment . Not noisy at all. The only improvement point is the service crew who should give less pressure to the customers and avoid asking continuously if they can bring up a new plate during the dinner ... most of people (and me itself) go out for dinner to have a relaxing time and wants to feel them free to take their time ....
We love Ithaka and make it a point to eat here at least once every time we visit NYC. Good, fresh seafood and the best feta cheese in town. Interesting Greek wines and friendly staff.
Absolutely the worst food ever. Totally bland and shrimp and fished were burned to a crisp. We told the waiter and they didn't even offer to give us a new dish. There were 3 of us and 2 out of three meals were not edible. Would never go here again
we all enjoyed the restaurant. The service was excellent as well as the food. The waiter was very attentive did not rush us nor did he bring the food out too rapidly. Overall an excellent evening.
Nice environment, good service and authentic food.
Excellent Greek Restaurant! We were celebrating a birthday and made reservations. The restaurant was quiet, and nicely decorated. The service was very good and attentive. We started off with some appetizers (eggplant dip, cheese flambe, and spanakopita) which were all very delicious! Our main meals were delicious as well and plentiful. They acknowledged my daughter's birthday and they came out with a dessert and we all sang "Happy Birthday." It was great! There are many dishes on the menu to choose from such a meats, fish, and vegetrian and priced reasonably. So there is something for everyone! Overall, I would highly recommend this restaurant for a good meal, the attentive service and most importantly, the delicious food that they serve. Enjoy!
