Mad Greek is a casual eatery that offers a wide range of Greek and Indian dishes. The restaurant's interior is simple and soft-colored. A line of small potted plants across the dining room adds a touch of freshness to the ambiance. Guests who prefer dining in the open air can choose to sit in the outdoor dining area as well. Mad Greek also features a full-service bar where guests can enjoy their favorite drinks with their meals.

Begin the meal at Mad Greek with an appetizer like Hoomis prepared with ground chickpeas, lemon, Greek olive oil, tahini and garlic and served with pita bread or potato samosas served with fresh chutney. For the main course try the popular shrimp saganaki with baby spinach, mushrooms, feta, kasseri and tomato sauce. For dessert, order the highly recommended Baklava ice cream or try the equally popular cardamom crème brûlée.

We made a last minute reservation for prime time on Saturday and we were accommodated cheerfully.
The avgolemmeno soup was perfection. Our dinners, the Lemon Chicken and the burger were great.
For dessert we shared the Creme Brûlée. I found it to be more creamy than custardy. The flavor was good, but the consistency that I'm used to for that dessert was not there.
Our server was great and made sure we had everything we needed. We will be returning.

My family took me here for a Mother's Day lunch. I thought the food would be heavy traditional Greek dining but they had a great menu with plenty of light and healthy Mediterranean-style choices. Our server was cheerful and knowledgeable and the owner came out and welcomed us. Altogether a very enjoyable lunch with fresh ingredients and good value.

Although the restaurant downsized a bit, the experience never changed. The food is always great and so is the service. Well done again.

It was my turn to host the monthly meeting of our social club and I decided to go back to an old favorite restaurant, The Mad Greek. Everyone was happy about the choice because they each had pleasant memories of their previous times there.

This time was no different. We were seated in a discrete section of the restaurant where we could hold our meeting and hear each other without disturbing others. We talked, drank plenty of wine, laughed and had a wonderful meal. Our server, James, was very attentive and patient. We will be back!

Food and service was much better than I remembered (or expected). Highly recommend it for a pre- concert dinner for Severance Hall events.

The menu has a pretty wide range of foods, so finding something you like should not be hard. The portion sizes are large, especially apps and desserts, but that just meant more to take home and continue to enjoy. Staff is attentive and warm.

Very nice dinner. We liked the menu with the wide variety of appetizers and both Indian and Greek entrees. Service was excellent and the portions were large. We will return when in the neighborhood
