Went here to celebrate my engagement and we were treated like royalty. The food was outstanding, as was the service. The owner continuously checked in on us. Overall a great meal and a great experience! Thank you thank you thank you!! Can’t wait to return!
Wonderful meal, wonderful service, and a wonderful chef! A memorable experience.
Good menu selections. Had Greek salad as a starter (very nice), followed by a dish for 2 (shared!) of the daily fish ($120.00 seemed a bit on the steep side though). Finished with Greek yoghurt (with walnuts and syrup) - excellent. Attentive service, nice atmosphere. Highly recommended.
Delicious!!!! Every thing was very good. The best yogurt.
Maria really makes the difference
Greeting people, coming to tables and a lively person!
But my Musaka ..... I ‘ ve already eaten better Musakas ...
Great seafood ever in NY!
We went for lunch had their set price menu. The beef orzo was amazing. Great baklava and the yogurt was one of the best thing I have ever eaten. On top of an extraordinary meal the owner/chef Mari Loi spent a lot of time chatting with us about food and wellness in the most caring and informative way possible.
La comida muy buena.
El servicio, los meseros bien, a secas.
La dueña es un encanto. Siempre está ahí, haciendo más agradable cualquier momento y pendiente de todo.
Un gran rincón de comida griega que vale la pena por mucho conocer en NY.
Dining here on Christmas Eve was an overall lovely experience . Came to NYC with a friend and looked for somewhere close to where we were staying to dine. A lot of places were booked and offered pre fixe menu’s that seemed either unappetizing or overpriced. We were so happy to have found Loi. We met owner Maria and Alex who were so kind and hospitable. Our waiter Noor was great. The food was delicious. My friend had the Branzino and I ordered the Greek Lasagna - both delicious. And don’t skip out on their village salad and grilled Haloumi for appetizers. Highly recommend!
Our favorite Greek restaurant! The speads are a great beginning - excellent! We had Mussels and Salmon. Highly recommended! And desserts - wow!
Yes of course. It’s an excellent place with tasty foods and an exceptional knowledge on human chemistry against food ingredients. Don’t miss it!
Für Europäer ist das Niveau des Essens im Verhältnis zum Hype, der darum stattfindet, nicht stimmig. Es ist gut. Die Beleuchtung ist extrem dunkel. Chefin und Personal sehr nett. Saßen gegenüber der Klimaanlage da hat es sehr gezogen, mussten den Mantel anlassen. Toll ist das kostenlose Wasser von dem reichlich ausgeschenkt wird.
I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who appreciates fine Greek fare
Excellent service and delicious authentic Greek food!
Amazing experience. And the executive chef is a fabulous person. Very personable. Great food and service
The restaurant was elegant and simple. Chef Loi greeted every guest personally and went around the room ensuring a perfect meal. The food was amazing, beautifully prepared and fresh. The menu is extensive but the branzino and lamb shank were perfect. Service was flawless and save room for dessert, they are all great.
Appetizers were outstanding! Grilled calamari and tuna tartar with bits of crispy phyllo dough was incredible taste wise and texture wise. Entrees (lamb shank orzo and grilled lamb chops) were good but on the dry side unfortunately. Taste was a little bland for me - maybe in their effort to keep it healthy they’d trimmed off a little too much fat. Desserts were also very good - baklava was very good but a little too sweet, walnut cake was cold but I expected it to be warm and not as sweet, my favorite was the Greek yogurt with honey and walnuts. Staff are as sweet and friendly as can be.
This is the best Greek restaurant in NYC. The quality of the food is beyond exceptional. The staff is super friendly and accommodating. Chef Maria has an incredible talent that she shares. Highly recommend this restaurant!
Found this little gem a few years ago when visiting the city and now I have to go each and every time I’m in NYC! Fabulous food and Maria is the perfect hostess and always visits your table. Always a delicious experience!
Excellent meal and service, some of the best Greek food I have ever had. The Lamb Shank is to die for.
Chef Loi and her staff treat you like a member of the family! Food was fresh and delicious. Special attention was given to the birthday we were celebrating, making our day that much better.
Been there before , quite a while ago.
Always excellent and i have been a fan of the chef.
Tonight fell apart for some reason. Lots of confusion.
While they were very polite and accommodating, a restaurant
of this class should not have these many issues on any night.
I will however try it again.
Wonderful atmosphere for my mom’s surprise bday. Loved the lamb shank, right up there with the best meal of all time!
Authentic Greek food with an amazing chef who makes you feel truly welcome at her establishment! The branzino literally melted in my mouth.
The food is generally good and healthy but preparation has been uneven recently
We have gone to this restaurant many times since it opened but recently some of the food
is undercooked or excessively dry or cold.
The proprietor needs to pay more attention to the sous chef
Need better seats-booth seats are very uncomfortable.
Had dinner with friends. Menu is perfect, something for everyone. Service was awesome and Ms Loi was very accommodating. One of the most authentic Greek cuisine I have tried in US! We will be back definitely !
Excellent food and a very nice environment. Device was great as was the decor. We will certainly return.
This restaurant is special. Chef Maria Loi provides such a warm and welcoming environment in addition to the fantastic meals she prepares. A must place to dine in NYC.
Outstanding modern take on traditional Greek dishes. Services fantastic. Delicious !
The food is excellent. It is authentic Greek food which I have on good authority since the last time we ate here it was with a friend who is Greek. The service is also excellent and the chef/owner came to the table which is a nice touch. The decor is basic but we came for the food more than the ambiance
Back to visit a favorite food place!
Spectacular Greek restaurant, heavy on seafood which was excellent. They are also generous with alcohol. Would love to come back one day.
Maria Loi is a treasure! Her food is incredible, and she genuinely cares about all her customers. This was a perfect dinner.
Superb food, interesting wine list, nice ambiance. Owner is the chief.
Amazing, everything was wonderful
Muy buen restaurante en New york. Recomiendo la musaka
Our fourth visit and never fails and will always recommend if on NYC
