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.

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.

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!

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.
