The food is extraordinarily good and the service was friendly, but they got a bit bogged down midway through our meal and it took far too long to get desserts and then our checks. We’ll be back!

The food and service was wonderful. One friend's first time. She said she would definitely be back. Went for lunch at 11:30, it was very quiet, but by the time we left it was full and lots of conversations taking place.

I brought a group of 12 hungry musicians for dinner. We all thoroughly enjoyed the food, wine and great service.

The meal was wonderful as always. I took my daughter there for a Valentine's date and we love mediterrainean food so Christos was our choice!

Outstanding Greek menu, facilities and ...surprise, below the noise level we’re all too often required to endure in restaurants today. It is a huge problem, often despite expensive interior designs that appear to reduce it. We’ll definitely be back!

Rack of lamb is a must! Tabouleh here is the gold standard as is the dip sampler.

My wife and I invited our daughter to join us for dinner before a concert. Christos was our choice and proved to be an excellent choice . We all ordered seafood. Seabass, shrimp, and I had mussels. I have never had better prepared nor more mussels and the same praise was said for the other dishes. Definitely returning to Christos to sample other offerings.

They have recently changed their menu selections. I always go for the Shish kabob. That was dropped from the menu recently. The souvlaki was OK, but served with fries instead of rice and grilled vegetables. This an issue for me, and probably removed based on others' preferences. I'll still go back.

Read about this place online as the best Greek in Twin Cities, so we gave it a try. It was fantastic! We’ll definitely return for many more meals.

I have eaten here on a regular basis for years. It is not too loud except for the time they have had parties of 12 or more people. This means people are yelling to be heard from one end of the table to the other. This has happened at least twice to me. One way to avoid this to eat on non-weekend days.

We love Christo's. They catered our wedding 21 years ago, and we return as frequently as we can - now to the Minneapolis site, since the St Paul has closed. The food is the best Greek in MN. The service is exquisite. It is quiet enough that my husband and son - both hearing aid users - can enjoy conversations. Parking is easy in the Christo lots. 3 cheers for the owners, chefs, and staff!!

Great food and service experience. A little more Greek decor would increase the ambience or appropriate background music. Great value for the quality.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE everything about Christos! Our server was fantastic. Food was outstanding and atmosphere on a busy Saturday night was great. Definitely make a reservation, there were a lot of people waiting as the restaurant was full. I had spanakopita (spinach and feta cheese in a phyllo pastry) and fries, comes with a house salad and bread. Delicious.

Our party of six had a very pleasant time, with all but one of us getting food that we really enjoyed. (The bummer was the pastitso.) Octopus appetizers were great, sea bass entrée was fabulous. Greek soup was under par, but salads were great, as was pita. Wine pours were small, but house wine was fine. Good service, though in mid-afternoon the staff was slim and our waitress did her utmost best to keep all her customors happy.

Service was good at the beginning and then tapered off- considering it wasn’t that busy for a Saturday night - surprising our waitress wasn’t more attentive. Food was good and noise level average. For Greek food in this part of town this is your only choice now. Still a good meal overall.

Been to Christos many times...love the place but parking is really getting tough...large apartment building now being built taking up street spots and of course the parking lot on West side of street always full. Food always consistent and good as is service. One comment for the management...we always get "to go" food as well as the food we eat in the restaurant...the containers (I know in an effort for sustainability) are awful and everything was dripping out and they collapse with anything other than perfectly dry food. They are simply not the answer. It was a mess. Anyway apart from that do recommend this restaurant.

We had a wonderful experience. We were seated on time. Our table was the size needed to accommodate the dishes we ordered without overcrowding which is helpful. The food was hot, great flavor and perfectly prepared. Our server was knowledgeable, sincere, timely and not overbearing. She was comfortable with herself and clearly liked the job she was doing. It was helpful to have our server's input as to how much to order for our meal - she was a good guide. Our food was served in a timely manner after ordering. We ordered The Iliad - a sampler of all the favorites. Each item was so tasty and unique. We found Christo's to be authentic Greek cooking and dishes. The pricing is very reasonable. The portions were the amount you would expect with the sauces generous enough so as to flavor the dish. Christo's has a full Greek cuisine menu. We will eagerly return and are already looking at dates that will work to get back to Christo's.
