Thank you Alex and Loi for a wonderful experience at your restaurant and making our anniversary celebration special. We look forward to our return in the summer with both our sons (the double bassists). Your dishes are forever embedded in our memories.

I don't mind spending $100 a person for food and I'm know I'm paying for Manhattan atmosphere. The portions could have been somewhat larger. I left the restaurant hungry within 30 minutes.

The cuisine is exceptional and the owner, Maria Loi, goes out of her way to insure that every guest is treated beautifully. As I have a number of dietary restrictions, Maria and the kitchen painstakingly create delicious menus for me and those that are dining directly off the menu. The food is fresh and superior. I can't recommend this place highly enough!

An amazing restaurant in midtown west that elevates Greek food to amazing heights. Greek food is delicious to start with and Chef Maria Loi takes it to the next level. The Asyrtiko white grape from Santorini makes an amazing white wine. My favorite dishes are the Octopus and the Lamb Shank. Highly recommended.

Osobuco soup was very good. My entrée (shrimp with pasta) was poor: not much flavor and pasta was very overcooked and mushy. They were out of the first two desserts we ordered. Then, rather than bringing me the dessert I ordered, they split it into four mini-servings for the table. Service was lackluster although restaurant was not crowded. It was hard to get waiter's attention. Waiter poured fresh wine into a used beer glass instead of bringing new glass. Given the upscale prices here, food and service were very disappointing.

The food here is very good, perhaps not Milos but then not $125 for a lobster salad either. The Greek salad would be better with heirloom tomatoes, but the octopus and in particular the tiger shrimp (huge, practically lobster tails) were outstanding. Desert, a typical Greek walnut/pistachio/honey concoction was very good, and the pre-dessert of home-made yoghurt was outstanding. Definitely a worthwhile place.

A warm and welcoming place for excellent Greek food, not masquerading as anything else. Comfortable and attractive interior matched by attentive service and lovely touches such as the delicious homemade corn bread and pita served to the table and the outstanding little dish of homemade greek yogurt served at the end. If you love a wonderfully comforting bowl of bean soup, a classic moussaka, or a great grilled octopus, you will not be disappointed.

Went for lunch and the only good taste was the eggplant dip. All the interesting dishes had a large supplementary charge. The pita was stale and baked until rock hard. The crabcakes were all filler. The kataif was soggy. Won't go back. As far as the service, they brought the main course while we were eating the appetizers.

Loi is one of the best restaurants in NYC. The food is always fresh and creative and the chef/owner, Maria Loi, is a national treasure.
You are made to feel right at home as you dine on one delicious course after another. Favorites include the fantastic Greek salad with the best Feta cheese ever, the fabulous crab cakes, and the superb branzino. For dessert, you won’t find better baklava and yougurt and honey.

Alex, Maria are warm, personable and energetic hosts. I’ve been there a few times now and they welcome me warmly as part of their Greek (non-Greek!) Family. Food is fantastically diverse and healthy. Great seafood and many salad/veggie alternatives.the lighting is warm and the ambience encourages you to stay and enjoy the many wonders. I will definitely be back as will my friends and colleagues. Love this venue!

This was only my second time here, and Loi and Alex, the owners, treated my like I was family! The food was the star too. The freshest fish you are going to find in the city! The branzino is outstanding. But the reason I came back, was for the grilled octopus appetizer. A flavor you can't explain. You have to go experience it yourself. Not to mention the lamb shank and the trio of spreads...plus everything on the menu!

Chef Maria welcomed us as we Camembert in & personally seated us. She made sure our server knew we had a theater event so we wouldn’t be rushed getting out in time. The pita & warm feta spread was amazing. The Greek salad Had the freshest ingredients & truly was the best we’ve ever had. The lemon soup! The broth was so rich & complex with deep flavor. We had the mussels & prawns which were also delicious. The baklava was perfect & the rice pudding was unique but satisfying. Wish we’d had enough time to come back!

Loi is a "sleeper". Authentic Greek cuisine, not what you would find in the typical Greek restaurant where the focus is on gyros and souvlaki and stuffed grape leaves (which have their place, but not this place). Maria Loi, the chef/owner, is the Greek version of Lydia Bastianich. The seafood is impeccably fresh, all courses are served beautifully, the staff is great. This is a winner. If you want authentic, creative and delicious food this is the place for you.
