Our server was attentive but not overbearing. She suggested an alternative for an appetizer and it was delicious. She made the evening for my son and I.

The food was very ordinary. The chicken had very little flavor and the flat breads were not heated.

Nothing was bad but nothing was great

Reliable, friendly and distinctive. Christos now is one of the few remaining authentic Greek restaurants in Minneapolis. Recommended. Worth remembering that they have their own parking lot, so that you don't have to struggle to find a parking place on Nicollet.

FRIENDLY INFORMATIVE SERVER, EXCELLENT FOOD, LIKED VARIETY. WINE WAS GOOD. RELATIVELY QUIET ATMOSPHERE WAS APPRECIATED. SERVER ANSWERED OUR MANY QUESTIONS AND MADE EXCELLENT RECOMMENDATIONS! LOOKING FORWARD TO RETURNING IN THE NEAR FUTURE.

SPOKE WITH OTHER CUSTOMERS WHO WERE VERY POSITIVE ABOUT THEIR EXPERIENCES @ CHRISTOS AS WELL. OBVIOUSLY REPEAT CONSUMERS WHO WERE SAVY WITH RECOMMENDATIONS.

Great food from the appetizers to desserts. The pita and dips were sublime to start our meal. Our spanakopita, chicken special and pastichio were all excellent. Baklava and rizogalo (rice pudding) finished off the meal with a nice sweetness.

I have been dating my wife pretty much every day we’ve been together, which is almost 13 years. This dining experience created another great memory for us: if you love Greek food then no disappointments here & the ambience was relaxing and casual. Be aware there’s no hard liquor license- no Ouzo. But that didn’t take away from our enjoyment though it’s something I wished we could have known prior.

I used to go to Christo’s for lunch with colleagues and none of us ever had a bad meal. I recently started going back there and Carol welcomed me as if she remembered me and I had been there yesterday. I often have to do a pick up for lunch. Most often, I order the gyro salad with the tomato basil soup. They are both delicious and even though I get it to go, it is fresh and delicious. Highly recommend this place for authentic and delicious Greek food and excellent service where they truly make you feel like family!

Christo's has become our favorite go-to place for special events. We appreciate the quiet atmosphere, the food is superb, and the service is outstanding. We were a party of six, and we all had a great time. We'll go back again soon.

ONe of our favorite Minneapolis restaurants. Not pretentious; simply great Greek food. We have never had a bad meal at Christo's but the lamb shank keeps bring us back. My wife and I split the shank and bring enough home for a third meal. When we have visitors from another city, this is one of our "go to" places.

Food and service are excellent. Prices are reasonable for the quality of food.

Ambient noise very high, making it difficult to carry on a conversation with one's dinner companion[s] or to communicate with the wait staff. So my mate and I ate delicious food more or less without conversation.

The lamb dishes in particular are so good that we go back at least once a year. Christo's staff seems aware of the noise issue but unwilling or able to take action.

I had an unpleasant experience with the waitperson. As I was leaving the restaurant she called out "SIR" very loudly, When I turned she said "you have not signed your...." then she stopped and realized something and said "oh, did you you leave cash?" I said I did and left with customers looking at me.
Not good.

There was a graduation party that took up many tables and there were young kids running around and yelling. It isn't normally like that.

As always, the food was delicious and the saganaki such fun. The waiter was a delight and because we were early and the restaurant was not packed, the noise level was better. We'll keep returning, of course.
