Good restaurant.
We were on the peak time.
Waiters were busy for guests.
A waiter poured water to glasses on our table, then looked at another tables, guests.
not bad nor good.

Ob Sie ein traditionelles griechisches Gericht wie Moussaka oder etwas aus dem Mittelmeer wie Octapus oder den Balkan wie gegrilltes Lamm bestellen, alle Gerichte werden mit Kreativität und Flair zubereitet.

First of all the food was great.
We came as a group of 10 and the waiters were very obviously stressed out with the group dynamics of people ordering different courses at different times.
They forgot to bring one entire starter and main dish.
When they brought food and the person who ordered that dish did not raise their hand immediately, they were complaining and arguing loudly why people cannot remember what they ordered.
Lastly, there is no free ouzo, despite the very high prices of the restaurant.
In Germany, going to greek restaurants, you will get a free Ouzo at any greek restaurant.

Nicely decorated tables and good service. Wine recommendation was excellent, food very tasty. Prices are over the average but worth every EURO for the good quality. Noise level is high when all tables are occupied, mostly on weekends.

Das Essen war gut, sicher nicht auf Top Level, 24 Euro für einen gemischen Grillteller wecken eine Erwartung, die nicht erfüllt wurde.

Richtig ärgerlich war der Service. Die ersten zwanzig Minuten vergingen, bis wir Getränke bestellen durften, die Tischkerze wurde nicht angezündet, die Getränke Nachbestellung haben wir uns fast beim Ober erbetteln müssen, der nur auf Stammgäste fokussiert war und unsere Bestellversuche am Nachbartisch stehend beharrlich ignorierte. Das dann bestellte Getränk wurde dann auch prompt vergessen und musste nochmal geordert werden.

Natürlich wurde nach dem Hauptgang auch keine Dessertkarte abgeboten oder nach weiteren Wünschen gefragt.

Und, liebe Freunde in Frankfurt, ich kenne ich München kein gutes griechisches Restaurant, in dem der "Ouzo aufs Haus" nicht zum guten Ton gehören würde. Auch dabei wurden wir enttäuscht.

Die Atmosphäre ist ein hochwertiges Bistro in der Nachbarschaft. Das Essen ist durchweg ausgezeichnet und frisch mit einer großen Auswahl an mediterranen Produkten. Der Service ist freundlich und unkompliziert. Die Erfahrungen hier sind immer positiv. Das ist mein Lieblingsrestaurant in Frankfurt.

Really fantastic food, and attentive service without being invasive. The atmosphere isn't stuffy and the waiters enjoy having a laugh and joke, once again without it being pushed on you. I loved it, and would reccomend it to anyone!

Essen war gut, aber nicht überragend. Für den Preis hätte ich mehr erwartet. Ich hatte vorher schon in anderen Bewertungen gelesen, dass es sehr laut ist. Das kann ich nur bestätigen. Es war wirklich störend, obwohl das Restaurant noch nicht mal ganz voll war. Alles in allem gibt es bessere und vor allem gemütlichere griechische Restaurants.

Most Greek restaurants I’ve experienced are the more rustic type, which I love, but this Greek restaurant is upscale with delicious and inventive menu items. I loved the trio of spreads that comes w the freshly baked bread. One of the three is a black olive tapenade; the 2nd a fresh mint, cucumber and yogurt spread; and the third a roasted red pepper and zucchini spread. My starter was a mouth watering grilled octopus salad over a purée of yellow peas. For the main course I ordered one of the specials, a thick filet mignon w a pfifferlings (chanterelles) which are in season now in Germany. I ordered my beef medium and it came rare, red throughout but they kindly cooked it longer to the hot pink center I prefer. On their behalf it was a thick cut and in Europe I’ve noticed that restaurants tend to interpret medium differently than we do in the USA. The sauce was a little salty for my palate, but most would find the salt level good. The roasted potatoes were excellent and the complimentary dessert was scrumptious, fried sweet dough balls in a honey walnut syrup! All in all, I can’t wait to return and I would recommend this gem to all.

Der beste Grieche, bei dem wir in 30 Jahren gegessen haben. Hebt sich sehr angenehm vom üblichen Einerlei ab. Durch eine kleinere, feine Karte ohne die oft angebotenen Fleischorgien, die wir von vielen griechischen Restaurants gewohnt waren. Unsere 1. Adresse beim nächsten Frankfurtbesuch😊

A group of four of us went at lunchtime. The service, from being greeted at the door to our paying and leaving, was excellent throughout. The waiters and waitress were friendly and polite. One waiter even came to apologise for not coming immediately to take our coffee order...and he really meant it. Every one of us enjoyed the food and we asked for an extra portion of their homemade bread (delicious). The lunchtime prices are very reasonable. All in all, it was an extremely pleasant experience. This was the second time that I had been there for lunch......it won't be the last.

I had the steak and it was absolutely fantastic. With pepper sauce and olives and spices, it was one of the best steaks I have ever eaten. I had white wine instead of red, which was also very tasty (Sauvignon).

Insgesamt war unser Aufenthalt im Restaurant Ariston schön.
Die Qualität des Essens ist sehr gut, allerdings sind die Preise ziemlich hoch. Jemand der viel Hunger mitbringt sollte mehrere Gerichte bestellen, da die Portionen sehr sparsam sind.
Und es war ziemlich laut sodass man sich etwas lauter unterhalten musste.
