The owners and staff were very welcoming and attentive. The food was great for the most part. The spreads were delicious, the seafood was cooked perfectly but the orzo was a little over cooked. Overall, we had a very pleasant dinner.

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.

Another AMAZING evening at Loi! Delicious food, outstanding service and of course entertainment! Chef Maria Loi always makes our meals more enjoyable with her wit and charm. The fish is the freshest you will find in NYC and Maria's yogurt is to die for! Can't wait to go back!

We try to dine at Loi Eatiatorio whenever we visit Manhattan. We met Maria Loi during our first visit and her energy, her excitement about food, and the high standards she sets for herself and her staff have kept us coming back! At this visit my wife had the Branzino and I had thé moussaka. Both were excellent! We also love the complimentary appetizer: warm yogurt with feta and herbs served with pita and cornbread and the complimentary dessert of Maria’s homemade yogurt with honey and crushed nuts. Both are excellent! We also ordered a dessert: shredded filo with custard, honey, and nuts-exceptional!! We will definitely return!

Excellent fresh fish. We enjoyed sardines, branzino, and Tiger prawns. All simply grilled with olive oil. Delicious and healthy. Also really liked their cauliflower preparation. Always an enjoyable experience. Highly recommend.

This is my favorite Greek place in the city, the food is so clean and tasty, and the ambiance and service is just impeccable. On this occasion, I went there for a business lunch, and my colleagues were very impressed, they loved the food of course, and Chef Loi's special dessert collection! We had the Greek salad, the salmon and the branzino, with a delicious glass of white wine from Santorini (assyrtiko my favorite). I will definitely be having more business lunches there, it is the perfect place for it and so centrally located that it is convenient for everyone.

Ms. Loi was wonderful, so much fun to chat with. And The food was amazing, especially the Lamb Shank which was the best my wife and I (we both ate it) had ever had. The grilled octopus was fantastic as well, as was the feta cheese and yogurt dip. As a topper to it all, Ms. Loi was kind enough to provide us with complimentary desserts that were equally amazing. My wife is VERY VERY picky and she loved the food. And the service was just perfect. We will definitely be back!!

We celebrated a birthday and it was a wonderful experience. The food, ambiance and service were terrific! We were a party of 8 and everyone raved about the food. The appetizers were delicious, including the grilled octupus and spreads. My lamb chops were perfect! Others had whole fish and were very happy. They were out of the Santorini white wine but the replacement was just as delicious (a sauvignon blend).

It was my first time dining at Loi and will definitely return.

Loi is a wonderful experience hosted personally by Chef Loi. The food is spectacular and healthy, no butter, everything is cooked with olive oil. The quality of the Bronzino from the Mediterranean is unique in NYC, and the menu of Greek delicacies is extensive. The Greek dips are very tasty; found them recently at Whole Foods. A great find!!

I have had dinner at Loi on many occasions, personal and business. Each time the experience has been wonderful! The food is delicious, authentic Greek ingredients and prepared with no refined sugar or butter. Imagine baklava without any butter...it is amazing! The flavor of the walnuts shines through. This is the same for all of the various foods I have eaten at Loi.

I loved the food- everything was very well prepared and properly cooked. Maria Loi makes sure that pure ingredients are respected and not adulterated with quirky sauces and fancy concoctions. The mediterranean kuzina is all about purity and balance. Maria Loi is an excellent hostess and by greeting her guests every night Maria Loi makes dining personal and heartwarming. Super staff too. Great food and quality aside, the ambience was cozy but I would have liked a different interior design for such great food and an amazing chef. I would have also liked masticha ice cream as a dessert to cool down the palate! However, that is strictly personal. Maria Loi is highly recommended for all occasions ! My favourite estiatorio in NY! A must when visiting NY!

At this Greek restaurant we shared delicious home made Tzatziki, Tyrokafteri, Melitzanosalata & Hummus starter followed by a village salad and finally Branzino, seasonal greens, lemon & Olive Oil. Very good food. I was only surprised at the delicious white wine that accompanied the meal...far better than my expectation! I have already booked my return visit!

Maybe we were there on an off night.

>We ordered cocktails off their menu and after 10 minutes they informed us they had to go to the store to get the alcohol to make them.
>We ordered appetizers and the calamari was tough, the octopus tasted like tuna, and the spreads were not enough to wash away the disappointment of the other two dishes.
>We finished our cocktails and our appetizers and still our server had not come by to take our entree order. I should note that, we were not here during peak hours. Grabbing dinner at 6:30 on a Tuesday had us in a room with only two other tables full. Finally the hostess came and took our orders.
>Entrees came. They were good, no complaints, but no one was wowed either.
>The hostess was the only redeeming element of the night. She got our second round of drinks herself, she came and took our dessert order (which she had put on the house). Our server was trying to get us dessert menus two seconds before the desserts actually came out.

Overall extremely unimpressed and would never entertain a client here again. Based on other reviews I thought I was in for a treat!

It is a true delight dining at Loi. The food is amazing. The only difficulty I have is deciding what to order, however, the staff is so knowledgeable and helpful they make it easier. The atmosphere is warm and friendly with an eye to the dinners' privacy. Chef Maria Loi is not only an artist but one who so skillful at cooking healthy, you don't even realize that it is a tremendous benefit of eating there. My wife has an unusual diet, however, Maria and Dara always accommodate. I have never had a disappointing dish at Loi. And I am a regular. Try it, I know you'll love it.

LOI is a wonderful choice for Greek/ Mediterranean dining. The food and service are outstanding. The branzino is exceptional ! The high quality of the food and presentation is matched by the skilled and friendly staff. My only regret is the noise level interfered with our conversation at times, but unfortunately that is often the price of popularity among Manhattan restaurants. The bottom line is that all of us enjoyed our dinner at LOI immensely, and we agreed to return soon.
