Terrific restaurant. Food was outstanding as well as the service. Will certainly return to this outstanding restaurant during future visits to NYC
Mother’s Day. Consistently good food. The Magic Mountain Sauvignon Blanc is excellent compliment to the Branzino. ❤️ the chef and owner, Maria.
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!
Great night out with Maria! As usual the food and service were great !!!
Awesome food and service - wonderful experience!!
Best Greek restaurant in the tri state area! Wonderful chef/owner, staff. Food and wine always on point!
Great food and service. Noise from cars because we were outside which, of course can’t be helped.
This is the third time we visit Loi, amazing food and service to
Great food and just as good as service. The vegetable dishes are authentic Greek.
The food is wonderful the staff is very friendly.
Love the outdoor dining and the food is consistently wonderful.
Lovely experience! The chef was personable and the food great!
Always amazing food and atmosphere!
Even during Covid times Loi has done a spectatcular job with outdoor dining.
The food is 5 STAR*
We loved the experience!
We ate inside for the first time this year at a table for four separated from other tables by plexiglass. We had a great dinner experience - the food was fabulous - and we can't wait to return .
Highest quality food prepared beautifully. I have alway told anyone that asked that Loi’s is the best Greek restaurant in NYC. And that’s saying a lot.
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.
Excellent service, excellent food and great ambiance.
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!
the restaurant has all the requirements to eat safely and has very good and authentic greek food.
Fabulous from the service to the food! Can’t wait to go back..
FYI. No zucchini/ Eggplant chips ... chef doesn’t fry! Not a bad thing ... everything was delish!!
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!!
Fabulous as always. Our favorite restaurant in Manhattan by far.
Always dependable. Food quality is exceptional. Staff is most accommodating
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.
Second to none!
It was amazing
Mari Loi is the best of the best, generous and glamorous , as well as a great, innovative chef. The stuff is even healthy. I am so lucky that the restaurant is one half block from my home.
Excellent food. Very accommodating service. Always a very pleasant dining experience.
Best in service and best in Greek authentic healthy food.
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.
Always a wonderful experience! Fantastic food, service and ambience. Kent Whitaker
They did a terrific job dealing with outside and Covid.. Would love to go back when this is all over.
Good food and wonderful service make this a go to choice.
Its outstanding - every time we eat there. The food, the drinks, and the servers are the best!
Best Moussaka ever. Celebrated a marriage. Staff brought cake with a candle. Safe outdoor seating. Great experience all around.
Maria and her staff are amazing. the food was delicious and "authentic" Greek.
Always love coming here. We are so lucky to live right across the street from this wonderful restaurant. Can't recommend highly enough, the service, the atmosphere, the staff, and of course the food, are perfect every time. A home from home for us.
