Food was fabulous, we’ve been to all the top Greek restaurants in NYC and this was our first time at LOI and we’ll be back many times. The food was authentic Greek, prepared with fresh ingredients. The yogurt sauce and various spreads were delicious but the lamb shank was one of the best we’ve had and the same with the fish. Maria LOI, the owner and chef was ever present and a gracious host. It was a delightful experience!

Everything about our dinner was wonderful. The chef came and introduced herself, she was lovely, and the food was absolutely delicious. It was the perfect place to meet. The weather was nice, but a little chilly. We sat outside and had a lovely table with an individual heater. The staff made sure we were taken care of and it was very much appreciated. We will definitely be back lots!

My husband and I were pleased with the quality of food and service! The owner Maria was very welcoming; it felt like we visited a friend’s house. COVID-19 measures were taken all throughout the restaurant. Will definitely visit again very soon.
Thank you!

Came to Loi for a late lunch on my birthday and it was incredible! My friend had the grilled halloumi which he loved! I typically order that but my diet restricted me from dairy, so I had their Greek salad and was not disappointed. They were very kind to accommodate my allergy, offering some hummus and cucumber in place of their traditional amuse bouche of pougie and pita.

Their Covid procedures are great! The entire staff wears masks and gloves and tables are separated with clear partitions inside that don’t ruin the ambiance. I felt safely separated from the other guests and very well taken care of!

All in all a great meal! Highly recommended!

Maria is the most wonderful owner and chef of this amazing restaurant. We love to come and try her suggestions for wine, appetizers and entrees. She takes special care of every guest as if you were in her home.
I would highly recommend for any occasion but beware, you will be hooked on the good and Maria!!

The team at Loi went above and beyond—cannot recommend them enough! They were so friendly and attentive, it felt like we were dining in someone’s house, not a restaurant. The food was phenomenal and not overly contrived. You could really taste the flavors of each dish. Highly recommend the romaine feta salad, branzino and salmon tartare. Great wine selection as well. Can’t wait to go back.

The entire dining experience was a joy from start to finish. Not only do the staff make you feel like part of the family, but the food itself is absolutely incredible. It's completely unpretentious, a place where you can expect to see Chef Loi engaging her customers with a beatific smile and limitless warmth. I would live here if I could.
