Loved the Avgolemono, hope some day they add an option for a smaller portion (they do provide a take home container). My lamb kabob was delicious and the Spanakopita was delightful as well. My bf was a little disappointed in his lamb shank, I believe it was too fatty for his taste. He loved the wine he ordered so much that he looked it up online...and then found it priced per bottle what he was charged per glass, but I guess that is not uncommon. Overall, we liked it a lot and want to try more of their menu items :)

My husband and I enjoyed this restaurant very much. We love Greek food and have been having trouble finding great Greek in the Northwest suburbs. The service was strong, I felt confident in their management of Covid issues and the food was delicious. I will recommend this restaurant for great Greek in our area.

I celebrated my birthday with my husband there and it was raining outside. We err the first to arrive for the evening hour and it was nice that other 2 set of guests were seated in distance from us. The service was great, our server was attentive and engaged the right amount! Then the food came out and wow! Usually I go to Greek Town in Chicago but I found me Greek resto near home. I ordered the branzino and that was delish. He said for one but we had appetizers prior so that filled me up. Oh and Happy Hour from 4p-5p that included 1/2 off all apps was great! I’ll definitely be back!

Delicious avgolemeno; mushy “oyster lamb bacon” special starter I’d avoid it and would be surprised if it reappears on menu; salty taramasalata; not enough bread to dip in dips (downright stingy I don’t want to keep asking for bread / pita slices - put enough to account for how much dip we have). Moussaka not good- heavy white sauce overwhelms any other flavors; baked chicken delicious; chicken kabob okay; heavy-on-the-dill Greek salad. All in all a spotty experience like the place is new. They need to refine some of their recipes.

It was a very enjoyable evening. We loved the hummus trio. My fiancé had the lamb chops, and I had the shrimp kebabs. They were both very good. I thought the price of a drink- vodka and club soda was alil outrageous at $10 each, but the service was excellent. We also had the baklava which was a huge portion

Everything was DELICIOUS!!! Like, next level delicious! Went with a group of 6 and sat outside. We ordered almost every appetizer on the menu and everything was more delicious than the next. The chickpeas, octopus and corn salad were my favs, but the spanakopita was phenomenal as well, so are the spreads. Dinner we had swordfish kabobs and branzino- both spectacular. Our waiter was super nice, gave great recommendations and did not rush us at all. I would absolutely recommend this restaurant and can’t wait to come back again!

First time at Chrissoulas, but had been meaning to come here since it had opened. What can I say except that you need to eat here! Service, food, and ambiance were all great! I ordered the octopus and my friend had the lamb kebab. To perfection! We had also tried the spanikopita and saganiki to start. Recommend both of those as it’s obvious how fresh they both were. The highlight may have been the Greek potatoes. Can’t wait to go back!

While the ambiance in the back patio was nice and service above average; food was not the best. Few of the dishes on the menu were not available when the crowd was thin during the middle of the week; rice with the Kabob was hard and stale (perhaps made a few days ago) and some of the spreads were not that tasty as often you expect from a Greek restaurant. Maybe current economic situation and low turnover is impacting the quality of the food short term.
