From our warm welcome to exceptional food and service, we love Orexi!
Wonderful neighborhood restaurant. Lovely service, good food, nice atmosphere.
We always get the Greek salad when we come. The special was a whole sea bass that was cooked to perfection. We've always had great meals here.
Really good food and great staff
Amazing fried cheese appetizer and dreamy dessert.
The food and service at Orexi are excellent! The ambiance is warm and inviting. My daughter had the lamb shank with orzo that was falling off the bone perfect. I had the roasted chicken that was tender on the inside with perfectly browned skin on the outside. My husband had the rib eye steak that was seasoned and cooked perfectly. The roasted potatoes that come with dinner are perfect and worth cheating on your keto diet. Our server was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive without being overbearing. Overall a great dining experience, and highly recommended.
We were seated at the table closest to the kitchen. I found that the smoke from the grill bothered my eyes. Too bad because everything else was really nice. Perhaps they need a stronger exhaust fan.....
Great neighborhood eatery!
Creative, delicious specials, fabulous - favorite - Greek salad , friendly service.
Good food but way overpriced in my opinion. For the same price I’ll just go to Kokkari
Absolutely delicious dinner. The octopus salad was amazing! The octopus was grilled perfectly and the salad was crisp and delicious. We had the salmon and the lamb shank for our entree. The lamb shank was tender, delicious and the juices if the lamb combined with the orzo was wonderful. The salmon was cooked perfectly with a drizzle of pesto and a side of lentils that was a great compliment to the fish.
Our server was attentive. She gave us suggestions when asked.
This place is a gem in the West Portal neighborhood. We will be back!
We love this Greek restaurant! Food never ceases to delight us & family owned.
Always amazing!!! Best Greek food in the city!!!
Excellent food and service.
This place is so great! The food is absolutely delicious and everybody there is very nice. My husband does not like to eat out, but Orexi will always get him out the door! Their lentils are so unusual and tasty. This time I tried the Greek yogurt dessert with the family made honey - WONDERFUL!
Orexi was amazing! I highly recommend the lamb shank. Service was excellent, food was excellent
Food and service was great
Delicious food, especially the lamb chops, unbelievable!
It's great to see a really high quality, fun neighborhood restaurant. The staff is very friendly.
The service was great, its a smaller restaurant so definitely book ahead. Great choices in food and everything was delicious!
Very nice selection of dishes. Everything high quality.
Wonderful local restaurant. Great flavors and super fresh. A gem!
Everything was tasty. Lamb rib appetizer, zucchini fritters, spanakopita special, Halibut and grilled Mediterranean Sea bass.
Fabulous and delicious as always!
Consistently wonderful food and service! Our go to neighborhood restaurant.
Very nice dining experience. Good food and service. And you could have a conversation without shouting.
We love this restaurant and we always look forward to our next visit. The whole team makes us feel so welcomed, very much a family friendly environment.
I would recommend Orexi to anyone looking for delicious authentic Greek cuisine and fantastic service.
Thank you Katarina and Orexi crew for your kindness and wonderful hospitality.
Great time at Orexi with the family. My guests were very happy with their meals. My fish was a bit too salty, my only complaint.
The Mussaka was terrific, the lamb chops were reported as terrific but I didn't get a bite! Service started a bit pushy but was smooth throughout the meal including right timing for the bill. Moderate prices for top quality food.
Outstanding food with fresh ingredients in a relaxed, congenial atmosphere. I've been here several times and have never been disappointed. Highly recommended.
Outstanding food, great service. A little pricey, even for the quality, but I would still go back without hesitation. Very creative menu items, including the appetizers. Amazing desserts. Impeccable service. Very attention, but not annoying. The prices would get me there a little less frequently, but at least you get generous portions, and good quality. Do not hesitate to go to Orexi.
We were a boisterous group of 6, coming a Wine Bar across the street & we’re running a bit late. A quick call to let the know & they didn’t miss a beat - our table was waiting for us & we were seated immediately.
Katerina our wait staff person was excellent, attentive & knew her stuff! They even handled a mid-meal “to go” order for us & everyone could not have been more hospitable.
The food was all excellent with high honors to the octopus salad & the whole fish Mediterranean Sea Bass special - we’ll definitely be back!
Winner every time - very cosy, great food and good service.
Great food and, as always, Katerina served our table well. It never ceases to amaze us that she does not write down our orders but always gets them correct.
Great welcome dinner to the neighborhood! The host (could have been manager?) and server were wonderful and food was delicious!
Great food. Attentive, professional but very friendly service. Tina is terrific. Will be back.
The food and service were good but not outstanding as on other occasions. For example the saganaki we got was almost half the portion that we had gotten previously. The special pastitsio had too much ground meat and was not firm enough. Maybe just a bad night/
Loved it! Got to love Greek food they nailed it
