Ithaki brings me back to my Greek roots, it offers delicious authentic Greek dishes beautifully presented and in generous portions. We've been going for over ten years now and it's better than ever. Their octopus is so tender and flavorful, good to share before your main course. Their fish is so fresh, being in Ipswich their fortunate to have it locally sourced. I wish I could remember our waiters name, he served us in the bar, tall, thin, young, handsome, and so very patient, gracious and knowledgeable of their offerings. He couldn't do enough for us. Try it, your going to find yourselves mailing it one of your regular restaurants.

Ithaki never disappoints and it didn't this time either in our recent visit. Our waitress was cordial and played along with one of our friends that was being funny, and it was a very enjoyable meal. The food was impeccable as always.

This was the third trip here and we have never been disappointed. We go here prior to attending the theater and the staff is always aware of our potential time constraints. I really want to go when I can relax and savor the time and food there.

The food is delicious. The feel is authentic Greek. You feel that many of the customers go to the local Greek church together, which leads to a festive lively atmosphere.

We have been searching for a good upscale Greek restaurant on the North Shore and found it 20 minutes from our home in the lovely town of Ipswich. The restaurants in our home town area of Newburyport and Amesbury have become too expensive for every day dining so it was good to see Ithaki was very reasonably priced. The Greek food was excelllent. The service wonderful. We will be back often.

I have been to Ithaki many times before, and have never been disappointed. There is always something new to try via daily specials. The calamari is fantastic, although I have to ask for the sauce on the side because it is too spicy. Braised lamb, moussakas, and other traditional Greek foods are spot-on. Don't miss the galactobouriko for dessert.

Good Mediterranean inspired food, nice wine list and ok prices for what you get.
Saturday 7:30 pm service was what you would expect for a popular restaurant... service took a long time because so many folks arrived at the same time. We were not in a hurry, so it was fine.

We've been here many times over the last 10 years and it never disappoints. Not only is the food delish and authentic, but they have a wine list that includes many Greek wines, which is hard to come by.

Food was excellent. Wine was superb. I described to our waiter what I was looking for and he gave me a good recommendation.

Overheard waiter telling staff "They order what I tell them to order." I found this an arrogant point of view. I hope he was just joking and that this is not his real attitude Otherwise the service was excellent.

I like authentic Greek food and it's difficult to find.

Had been to Ithaki on multiple previous occasions. This was by far not the best visit. Even though we had a reservation they tried to seat us in the bar twice before we finally were seated in the dining room (at a less than ideal table). Service was sloooooow and verynot good. Seemed like they did not have adequate staff for the number of patrons. Waitress "forgot" to bring our wine. Grape leave appetizer arrived cold ( in fairness, they did take it off our bill). Moussaka was good. Lamb Skewers with rice and asparagus was lackluster. Lamb was over salted.
Overall, not sure if I would make a return trip.

A worthwhile dining experience. Small plates with lots of Mediterranean food options. Excellent waitress. I would definitely return as the food was good. It was, however, not exceptional. Not every food experience needs to be that, so I always allow for the simple good food to have its own place in our dining experience.

Though more of a fall/winter dish, I hadn't had it in such a long time...I ordered the mousaka! It was absolutely delicious! Our group had several different food wants/needs: basic, vegetarian and celiac to name a few. For the most part, everyone enjoyed what they ordered. The lamb sandwich, though moist was extremely salty. They offering for gluten free was fine, though it would be great if they added some gluten free bread to the menu. It's one item that a lot of celiac's miss when going out to eat and the table is served some deliciously warm bread. The service was attentive, friendly & helpful. Loved the ambiance and decor.

Ithaki describes itself as a modern Mediterranean restaurant, and this is is quite accurate. It's also accurate to say that not only does Ithaki offer a contemporary approach to Greek and Mediterranean food, it's well prepared, well presented and well served. The tables are large and well spaced, and the owners have clearly taken significant effort to control noice -- lots of drapes, for example, even away from windows. One in our party has a hearing challenge, and while even quieter would have been better, the noise level was acceptable.
