Really good food and great service! Our waiter was so friendly and helpful. I requested a candle and dessert for my friend's birthday and they came through great. Also, for outdoor dining, they have really great heat lamps - I was not cold at all. Definitely recommend!

Everything we ordered was delicious, especially the seafood and the wine! Felt very safe too, our table was very separated from the next group and all staff was following precautions.

It used to be a place with a tasty good food. Not anymore. My greek salad had a ton of big cut tomatoes, olives were not pitted, almost broke my tooth. My guest ordered arugula beet salad, arugula was welted, missed dressing, very dried salad.

Delicious first experience at this authentic Mediterranean Style restaurant coping extremely well with having safe spacing outdoors and still achieving an ambience of relaxed dining. Will definitely be back . Hope they are considering outdoor heaters for the upcoming colder weather

Food was terrific and outdoor seating felt very comfortable. They have a very large outdoor space allowing for many tables. They were very understaffed and therefore could not be as attentive as desired. The staff did the best they could given the situation. However, the running and rushing of staff took away from what should be a relaxed atmosphere. There was an owner or manager walking around but never once did I see him tend to a table or help out his staff by taking care of any patrons. I have worked in several restaurants and would never want to work here. Despite the food and drinks being excellent our overall dining experience was only average.

Quality and Price is a great combination. Add the great service and nice atmosphere and you have a winning formula. Neighborhood restaurant with home cook charm. Nothing elaborate but the right amount of flavor. Went twice recently and plan on many more visits.

A great place for dinner. Many outdoor tables at a good social distance, interesting stuff on the menu, giant-size cocktails. A vast choice in Greek foods--you can get the pickled lemon potatoes everyone raves about as a side order. Lamb Kebab just $19. They let us bring a birthday cake. Probably the best Greek restaurant within walking distance (20 minutes) of the ferry stop, now newly expanded to stop on the Upper East Side. The others are significantly further away.

We have not been out for dinner since March 7th, so we were overdue. We invited 2 friends to join us and we were allowed to choose our outdoor table. The set up is very comfortable, the waiter was attentive, the food was delicious, the wine was only OK. A coworker had the same reaction that I did, the wine list was limited, overpriced, and the less expensive wine was only so so. The selection of food is outstanding and it was nice to be out of the house on a balmy Sunday afternoon.

The Prasini salad was well-dressed. The tzatziki, eggplant, and htipiti spreads were excellent. All four of us enjoyed the grilled calamari and the flavorful Pasta Greca. The swordfish was cooked well and surrounded with vegetables. We left satisfied. There were no complaints all around and I can’t wait to go back

Service was very good. Our reservation was honored on time. Food presentation was very nice. We ordered the whole fish, and it was delishious; however, the preparation of green vegetables was a problem. The brussel spouts were overcooked and far too salty. Overall we enjoyed our dining experience. This was our second visit, and we will return.

Dinner at Akrotiri on a Saturday night. We opted to dine at the bar where we were greeted by bartender and manager Arif. Arif mixed us two proper Old Fashioned cocktails with clear ice, which was a nice professional touch. Highly recommend to pick an entree from their fresh fish market. My dining companion and I went for the prawns and the tsipoura. The fish was grilled to perfection with only a light touch of olive oil and lemon juice to highlight the freshness of the dish. Akrotiri has become my regular spot, food and service are always consistent.

We have been to Akrotiri twice in the past month, and in both cases we had superior Greek cuisine, and warm and attentive service from all the staff, particularly our waiter Costas. The restaurant is a neighborhood gem.

Akrotiri is a very good Greek restaurant - delicious food, welcoming and helpful service, and a lovely, comfortable setting. I particularly appreciated the combination of terrific food, welcoming hospitality, and a very reasonable noise level, with well-chosen jazz and classic vocals. Together, these make for a wonderful shared meal with friends and loved ones. Next time, I want to try their great-sounding cocktails
