Had a nice time, but the waitress was a nuisance. She constantly interrupted us, breaking into conversations to say “everything ok here”.
Twice is nice. A hundred times is ridiculous.
She wasn’t busy, so she must have thought this was what she was supposed to do. It was awful.

The ambiance was very nice, service excellent and the food...! Everything fresh (had the delicious hummus accompanied with homemade hot pita bread and the gigantic Galini grilled meat platter) and well served. Even the espresso coffee was remarkable - first time ever I was served a hot and tasty strong one! Definitely thumbs up for the chef/owner and his team.

More of a seafood restaurant than a Greek place. Service was terrible - had to wait for everything - drinks, food, napkins, etc. Appetizers were delicious - dips, grilled octopus, saganaki, but salads were tiny and no grape leaves?? Probably won't return - too pricey for fair service and not a lot of Greek choices.

Galini is like taking a trip to the Greek Islands. The food is wonderful and my party had a great time, never being ignored by staff, and sharing stories of the Greek Isles. Galini is a wonderful surprise.

We all thought the food was very authentic and fresh. The server Christopher was friendly and professional. We each tried each other’s dishes and I believe the shrimp Santorini is in the top five all are good served hot and a wonderful authentic atmosphere. It was so good we went back the next day

The food was good , not excellent . We took the village salad : tomatoes were too cold and not ripe. Dressing didn’t taste home made but bought on the market. Usually just good olive oil, lemon juice and oregano. Chicken kebab were dry ( over cooked) and again the marinade tasted artificial , not home made.
Service was good . Restaurant very clean but felt a little bit like a cafeteria . All the table are aligned and nothing to make it a little bit cosy . We will return because there is not many greek restaurant in Florida. If the chef worked at Milos I am sure he can do better . He has no competition in this area ...

Worst expertise of my life - food was horrible mushy and overlooked - almost like it was served for the second or third time.
This place needs a new cook and quality food to prepare a meal.

Don’t really know how it was as we never got a table. Just like in Seinfeld, it great you can take a reservation, but can you keep a reservation? We had a 7:00 pm reservation and were told the table was not ready. It seems 4 other parties walked up and were seated, looking to be familiar with the owners. We were just totally ignored. We asked 3 times our table Would be ready, and nothing. Front of the house was a total debacle. No one to greet patrons. People just meandering around looking for someone to greet? Disappointed as the food looked good.

No Tzatziki Sauce served with 4 small pieces of pita. Had to pay $6.00 for Sauce which waiter brought to the table without bread. Lamb Chops had to sent back. Ordered medium and came back raw. The restaurant itself was pretty but the quality of food is more important. It was worth a try but not going back and will not recommend.

The food was just so so. We were 4 people. I ordered the jumbo shrimp but when it came, they were grilled inside the shells. It didn’t say that on the menu. That became messy removing them. However they were tasty. We were going to order desert but when we asked for 3 different items on the menu, they didn’t have them. So no desert for us. The service was good and the ambiance was pretty. The consensus was not to return.

Galinin is located in a strip mall which could put some people off. The decor is quite soothing and authentic of the Greek isles. The hostess was pleasant and sat us immediately. The food was quite good and the menu was representative of typical Greek cuisine. However, the service was not ideal as we had to wait an inordinate amount of time for our drink orders. Once we did order the drinks, the food arrived in a timely manner.
