Food is simply amazing! Fish shipped from Greece every day! Branzino was one of the best I’ve tried. If you are craving Greek or Mediterranean food, there’s no going wrong here!

Amazing food - best grape leaves I have ever had, and the yoghurt is wonderful. We tried 6-7 dishes and each one was delicious. The baklava and kadaifi desserts were terrific as well. Lovely place, lovely evening

Amazing food at a fair price. Grilled fish (for 2) was done to perfection. Glad to learn that spreads are available at Whole Foods and already added to shopping list. I will be back to explore more of the menu. Staff was amazing - could feel the love and passion they had for the food. Wine list from Greece is also fun to explore.

Just a wonderful experience overall with attentive and friendly service and delicious food! Really appreciated the heated, private and tented outdoor spaces for covid safety. Maria, the chef, was just lovely and came over to chat with us. Our waiter, Kaiser, was fantastic! I rarely ever write reviews but all of us were so impressed by this place! All the food was delicious especially the branzino and the grape leaves.

The food, the service, are the ambiance at Loi Estiatorio are all right at the top. We have eaten here twice, once before a performance at Carnegie Hall and once for lunch with our daughter. The first indoors and the second in one of their wonderful, private, spacious outdoor tents. We all love Greek / Mediterranean food and have eaten it all over the country as well as in Greece itself. We feel Loi Estiatorio is at the top of its game in the food preparation and presentation. Plus, as a bonus, everyone is so friendly and the service is what you would expect at white table cloth destination dining.

Best Mediterranean restaurant with amazing food and great people. Price is fair you pay and food is superb. Staff are very nice and pleasant. I have the best time and no doubt this restaurant is #1 in my NYC restaurant list. Maria Loi is so lovely and her recommendation to take the mussel sauce home to eat that with pasta is a fantastic idea. I need to go back to try more food and buy the pasta … so fresh and delicious!

This restaurant is a true gem. The food is so good it's hard to stop eating, even once you're full. The grape leaves are so delicious, they are a must! The yogurt and honey is unbelievable. The baklava is the best I've ever had and I've been to Greece! Not sure if you like greek food? Get the burger and you will be quickly converted. The staff is friendly and attentive, as is the chef! Best kept secret in NYC!

Our favorite place in nyc. Spectacular food and the personal touch, greeting diners, from the dynamic female chef/owner makes it very unique . Maria Loi makes all guests feel special and we learn something about her country. It’s been years since I’ve been to Greece but dying to go back!

Great food and friendly service and sat outside in the temp tables with heater. Get the halloumi cheese and branzino fish, tastes like it’s straight from Santorini. And you can say hi to celebrity chef Maria as she was there when we visited!
