Great food and service! Conveniently located beside the Grand Theatre! Great evening spent there. Food and wine were very tastey!

We used to love Megalos, but the menu has changed and the prices have also. $18.50 for a plain Caesar salad is pretty exorbitant. Just not impressed with our recent dining experience!

Just a perfect evening dinner before the show at the Grand. The whole night was super. We even engaged with the owner who was a fantastic guy. Highly recommend this restaurant to all.

Went here for Valentines Day dinner, the service was amazing and every staff member we interacted with was a positive experience - they all went out of their way to make themselves helpful. The food was great, one of the best steaks I had in Kingston. As for value, not too sure as it was Valentines Day and prices are expensive no matter you go, but the food quantity and quality was superb so I'm not hung up about spending a little extra.

Again, I need to emphasize how good the service was, from the hostess to our waitress, absolutely 10/10! Would recommend and definitely would return. Also ambience was very cool/relaxing.

The food had a very nice combination of tastes. The rice and vegetable had sat too long waiting for the chicken to be prepared, which had a hot temperature, but the the rice and veggies were between warm and cool. It would have been closer to perfect if all the food would have been at the same hot temperature, but it was not enough to spoil the meal.

Nice venue, good service. Glad to see a vegetarian option with the daily specials. Great craft beer from Prince Eddy Brewery. Portions could be a little bigger! We will definitely go back again!

My friend and I had not seen each other in 3 years and wanted something cozy for a good chat. From the moment we were greeted at the door, we were made to feel at home. We were given a lovely booth, our appetizer wine and mail dishes were delicious. The service was great and the atmosphere was perfect.

I can't wait to head out to Kingston again for another meal.

I was really looking forward to this meal and had cancelled at another place because it looked so nice from the outside. However, when we got there, the atmosphere was pretty cafateriaish. There were only two tables of people there and they sat us right behind one another so it wasn't exactly private. The food was average, the drinks were not the best. Won't go back.

We made a reservation as we were in Kingston for a concert. I was a bit worried as all places were booked up but this one. I’m glad we did! Even though it was super busy the food was excellent and served promptly and the waitress we had was great. Everyone seemed very happy! I would recommend them 100% and we will return next visit to Kingston.

My three guests enjoyed their salmon and gnocchi entrees but my cheery apple chicken was overdone. Service was very slow and it look almost 40 minutes for our food to arrive.
We went to Megalos for my birthday celebration on the recommendation of a friend who had dined there previously but i was disappointed.
I am not sure i would recommend the restaurant.

My first time trying this restaurant with a large group of people.
It accommodated us well and the service was great but the food wasn't fantastic.
The downstairs could be fun for private functions/parties.

I took my Mother and Sister there as they had driven to Kingston that morning to visit me for the weekend. The service was timely and friendly (which is honestly rare these days) and the overall atmosphere was comfortable and intimate for conversation. My sister and I ordered Bellini’s and although they did taste good, they are difficult to sip as the ice was not blended well which left large chunks of ice stuck in the end of the straw. The food was delicious with a good selection of vegetarian options (we are vegetarians). Overall, the night was a success and we will definitely be coming back in the future!

The waitress was cheerful and helpful. The appetizer (mushroom bruschetta) was not hot enough but tasty. The steak was very tough and the mashed potatoes were not hot enough. The sauce on the meat congealed rapidly. Overall it was a disappointing experience.
