Had a lovely dinner with my niece!
This place is excellent. The food is the real deal. Like being in Greece.
Truly authentic Greek food and a wonderful atmosphere
Food was delicious as always
Food is always good. Enjoyable experience each time.
We have been to this restaurant many times. The service was a little slow. No one came back to refill water or ask if we wanted other drinks.The waiter's mask never covered his nose.
The waitress was very rude to us, and they charge you $12 for a water bottle that you even asked.
This was a tremendously poor experience, both in terms of service and food quality. The main points:
- it took one hour from the time we arrived and were seated to be served (30 min to order and 30 min for food to come)
- after waiting one hour for the first course, the main course came less than 5 minutes later while we were still eating our appetizers
- the order did not include everything I ordered.
- the rice that was brought out was hard and steaming hot, clearly thrown in the microwave right before it was brought out.
- the ‘grilled’ salmon was covered in sauce, tasteless, rubbery to cut and chewy. Frozen?
- my wife’s vegetarian moussaka was also inedible - dense, heavy and deep in pastry and cream.
After paying my bill, I did speak with the owner. While I have sympathy for her comments that she is understaffed because she can’t hire workers, she clearly has owned this restaurant for many years and should know how to manage a kitchen staff. She apologized and offered me a $50 gift card to come back which I declined. I would just never go back again.
The other lesson learned…when you look for a reservation on Open Table and every restaurant is completely booked except for the one you picked (with plenty of good times available), that is a tell tale sign that others know what it took me to find out.
We had such a great time! The music on Friday nights was really good and we even danced! The food is always impeccable and delicious. You have to try the octopus. Always very tender. You can’t go wrong with anything you order. Maria the owner is fabulous! So welcoming. It’s like she is hosting you in her home. Superb!
Service was poor. Staff not well trained.
I’ve been using OoenTable since 2014 and never had a problem. Earlier today I made reservations for 6:30pm for 5 , picture posted. We were celebrating my boyfriend’s daughter first Mother’s Day. We were running late by 10 minutes and I called to let them know, only to have a young unprofessional girl tell me we were not down and we had no reservation. As you can see clearly I had a confirmation number. Asked for manager and was told “not there” and would give me a number to call. Not accommodating, only to tell me me they didn’t call me to confirm.
We were on our way to Anitik and thankfully Bella Luce in Nutley graciously accommodated us.
Worst service and the Owner was very rude. Place needs to get better staff and turn the AC on. Will
Never go back there.
Great place with excellent Greek food. Maria the owner is really nice.
Food I’ll call you back in a few. Hang tight. fabulous. Lamb was great, salmon was tasty, Antik salad was wonderful. Mussels in red sauce delightful.
Now open bar which was nice. Marguerita needs a little improvement.
Music a bit loud. Needed 1-2 more servers to keep up with all the people in a Friday. Yogurt dessert is yummy.
Overall happy to see it busy and nice to have the music. Just keep up with the hiring of servers so they can keep up with the diners!
The outdoor patio was lovely. The food was superb. The owner was delightful. A great experience- we will be back!
Return visit after several years hoping for a better dining experience - although food was ok the SEVICE was TERRIBLE! Unfortunately won’t be back
Amazing flavors, fresh ingredients, terrific service.
Great food and service!
The food was pretty good but don’t order cocktails. They were watered down and less than 3/4 full. I understand these are hard times but cutting corners like that isn’t good for business Total rip off of over $30 in liquor. Unfortunately because of a bad start to dining. It kinda put a bad taste in our mouth.
My new favorite restaurant. Would Rather drive the 30 minutes than go anywhere closer. Our server was the best!
This was our first time and we were very pleased with the food, service, and friendliness. The experience was as close to eating at a loved one's house as I have had in a long time. Food was delicious with generous portions and in talking with the matron of the place, she makes all the desserts herself. Had to get some to go as we were so full from dinner.
Just a note regarding the BYOB side: that has changed ~mid 2020 evidently and they have beer and wine now.
Came in Groupon. Nice bread and olive tapenade first. Good Greek cookie given at end. Salad good shrimp dishes rubbery and bland. Wouldn’t return. Server very nice as is atmosphere. Need better food.
Second time we've been there. Both times the food and service were fabulous. I highly recommend this gem.
Both regular and vegetarian moussaka was excellent. Soup great. Baklava for dessert was the best ever - not too sweet. We had an exceptional meal.
But the must hire more help!!! They did not have enough waiters and that was a problem.
The food is amazing but the service is horrible. We waited over 20 mins for our check. They are in need of additional servers. Wish the service was better cause all of the food is delicious
Owner is very hospitable and appreciates her customers and responds well to individual needs. The food is always fresh and well prepared. Never had a bad meal. The servers do not rush you intentionally, but should come over more often. Would recommend for people who like Greek food.
Love this restaurant. The food is really great! Best Greek around here. Highly recommend!
Great food. Never disappointed
The food was good but the service was terrible. We had ridiculously long waits at each stage of the meal without any checking in from the waiter.
Excellent food with warm service.
Nice and clean setting, nicely decorated. Service was great. The was also good
A good restaurant is good every night of the year when they're open. Antik Greek Kitchen ruined that for a large party this week. When a diner is given their plate 25 minutes ahead of the others at the table there is NO EXCUSE for that. When one has to ask the waiter 4 times for their coffee, their main course , their appetizers or their veggies then we have an issue and that's what we experienced at Antik. Usually good, but frightening how bad this restaurant was. Bad enough that I doubt a return visit.
Great food and service. Very consistent. We will return.
It’s not our first time there. And we love it. Absolutely delicious, friendly atmosphere, owner is amazing and very accommodating. And it’s BYO. Can’t wait to go back.
I booked a holiday lunch for my team and all were impressed! From the beautiful decor to the quick, friendly service to the delicious food, we really enjoyed ourselves. I even “converted” some “I don’t like Greek food” people! Thanks, Antik Greek Kitchen, we’ll be back.
P.S. gyros, moussaka, falafel, spanakopita were all outstanding!
We have dined at this restaurant several times and have enjoyed every visit. We always enjoy the fresh seafood served with deliciously prepared vegetables. A great starter is the Horotiki Salad - big enough to share. The restaurant is beautifully decorated with very comfortable booth and well spaced tables. The service is attentive and professional. Portions are generous and pricing is reasonable.
Wonderful food and service. Party in room next door was extremely loud however. Otherwise I would highly recommend this restaurant.
Authentic and gluten free!! Loved the lambs cheese
