The Best - say no more
Good fresh Greek food using the freshest ingredients served in a relaxed atmosphere. Maria Loi the chef/owner greets everyone personally and makes sure all is as it should be.
Amazing fresh fish, olive oil and all the food. Delicious! The restaurant could use better lighting and decor. Overall a great experience.
Great greek experiêncie
By far the best Greek in the country. I am an ardent fan of this restaurant. I’ve been here 10 times in the past 3 years and feel comfortable enough bringing out of town business guests. The food is exceptional and the ambiance is inviting and comfortable. Maria Loi is always there overseeing her pride and joy. The chicken soup is wonderful as are any of the appetizers. Fish selections are fresh and wonderful grilled and filleted. Her homemade Greek yogurt is a dream. I can’t say enough... so try it!
Loi Estiatrio is one of my favorite spots for dinner near Carnegie Hall or City Center. The atmosphere is warm and inviting, the staff extremely helpful, and the food is fresh and delicious.
The daily fish "en papillote" has converted my lamb lover husband to an enthusiastic consumer of fresh fish. The parchment wrapped boneless filet of delicious cod is irresistible and utterly satisfying. I highly recommend. Loi is the perfect restaurant for dining with friends. It's comfortable yet elegant and the food and service can't beat. It's also a thrill for lovers of great Greek wines which if you're anything like me you are likely to become over regular visits.
Excellent restaurant. Maria Loi makes the restaurant feel like a home where you have a wonderful cooked meal. My mother was a great cook and Maria’s is probably better.
Amazing!! And Chef Maria Loi always has a smile! Love her, love the food, love the staff!!!
Wonderful dinner here. The food was delicious, especially the spreads we ordered as an appetizer. The owner/chef came over to chat and she was lovely
My husband and I celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary with the prix fixed lunch. Both the chicken soup and Greek spreads we chose as appetizers were delicious. The eggplant spread had a wonderful smoky taste we both enjoyed. Our entrees, salmon with mashed potatoes and the crab cake were perfect. For dessert we chose baklava and chocolate cake. We were also treated with excellent Greek yoghurt with honey and walnuts. The owner visited our table at the end of our meal to enquire about our food. We assured her it was first rate and invited her to try some of the great new restaurants in Lancaster City, PA.
Wonderful charming delicious. The owner makes the experience
The service is exemplary, as is the food. Ignore the streets chaotic construction, and escape into this paradise.
Maria Loi is an incredible chef, who takes Greek foods to new heights and makes every guest feel like family when they walk into her beautiful restaurant.
Terrific authentic Greek meal that leaves you wanting to try everything on menu!
Thoroughly enjoyed dining here last month. Menu was varied and service was excellent. Chef Maria came to each table to insure that her customers were happy.
Food was ok- small portions, tomatoes were mealy, favs beans had no flavor, octopus was dry. . Waiter very pushy and charged for things we didn’t order.
I went there with friends. I ordered salmon. and had it cooked median rare. It was perfect, so soft, melted in mouth. I went that early, 5:45. half of the room full. We enjoyed it. Will go there again for sure. highly suggested!
Outstanding-superb-comfortable-no nonsense service I have never been disappointed at this restaurant
Wonderful neighborhood treasure! Can’t wait for the construction to be finished on west 58th street so people can discover this gem!
Very warm welcome from la patronne, waitresses were great and food and wine top notch. Would definitely recommend to anybody.
The best Greek food outside of Greece. Truly incredible and a great experience
Dining at Loi Estiatorio is an authentic experience of Greek food.
Amazing food and service. The restaurant offers a tasty and rich menu of greek food.
LOI is always great from the food ... O, the food!
And the great service!
Perfectly crisp calamari on a bed of arugula
Delicious branzino expertly done
Surprise visit from the chef at the table-happy to give many complements
Highly recommend for lunch with a Greek twist
Pleasant. Friendly greeting and attentive staff with food average.
Great food - getting better all the time! And the staff is wonderful.
One in our party needed gluten-free food and Loi Estiatorio was very accommodating, even to including a GF dessert and an alternative to bread. Although portions are small, they were delicious. The fish en papillote was cooked to perfection but the grilled feta cheese appetizer was the most delicious of the portions. Because the restaurant is small is was delightfully quiet. I noticed that many of the customers knew the chef and obviously were repeat customers. The Greek wine from Santorini was bubbly and delightful. Our experience was overall-a delight!
Fabulous authentic Greek food with an equally fabulous owner! The dips, lamb shank, mousakka, breads, Greek wines were all excellent and authentic! Highly recommended!
This was by far the best Greek meal I’ve ever had. The chef Maria is a character and so personable. Makes you feel very welcome. She even gave my family and I a free cup of her homemade yogurt with honey that beats any yogurt I’ve had anywhere else. I will be going back there for sure. I had the shrimp pasta and would highly recommend it.
Food was delicious. Service gracious and attentive. Perfect.
While we have a few go-to midtown Manhattan Greek spots, this one is now our favorite. Top on our return list.
Food was okay, nothing special. Very expensive relative to the food. Was recommended as one of the best Greek restaurants in NY. Hard to believe this.
Food is very simple. Not elaborated. Very much disappointed.
I am French and Paris-based, and I do not understand how this restaurant can have such high rankings. Very surprising to me.
Really enjoyed the fresh ingredients and great service at Loi Estiatorio. Delicious Greek salad which we were able to share. Pita bread and Greek yogurt with feta cheese dipping sauce was scrumptious. Chef Loi came by our table and said hello which was such a nice touch. Heavenly dessert.
Great food prepared from the finest seasonal ingredients. Maria is a gracious proprietor.
If you want authentic greek food with a personal touch, and excellent flavor, this is the place. The wines are also great. This was my third time, and I will keep coming back every time I have a business trip to New York.
