    As first timers, our family was not sure what to expect as we opened the front door to this establishment. We were shown to the second floor where the more "formal" dining takes place. Our food was delicious (we highly recommend the gyros, a special entree of lobster tail and angle hair pasta and the mixed appetizer special) and our server, David, was great.

    The food took a while to come out. The entrees were ok. The apps were good and the traditional entrees were really good. Our waitress Nicole was really the best part of our time there. If it wasn’t for her, our experience would have been much worse. Overall would go back and give it another try. Big thanks to Nicole!

    The food was very good. The waitress was excellent, but the service was very slow for a Wednesday evening at 7:30 PM. There were only 5 tables occupied, but they put us right next to another table with no space between us at all. It would have been uncomfortable in regular times, but especially during a pandemic. I regret not bringing this to their attention.

    Very relaxing, upscale atmosphere. Terrific grilled Greek Salad with addition of salmon. Salmon was a very generous portion. Visit Yorgo's at least once a month, and it never disappoints.

    As always the owners make it special. Their creativity mixed with fantastic food makes it a special place. They actually set up individual tent bubbles over each table with heaters which made it magical outside on the deck. Again, thank you so much for a wonderful evening.

    It took a very long time for a server to come to our table. Even though there were only 4 tables and two servers in our area the service was very slow. Our appetizer was great, but my entree was overly salty. The servers and one of the cooks and a manager seemed to know some of the other patrons and spent lots of time talking loudly with them, while paying less attention to other customers. The servers had ill fitting masks and patrons were not wearing them away from their tables.

    My wife and I took a trip to Lancaster and I made a reservation for Kefi at Yorgos after exploring the menu. I ordered a full Bronzino fish and my wife ordered the salmon. We also had the mussels appetizer. The food was dynamite and very reasonable. The drinks were made well and the service was excellent. Looking forward to going back next time we’re in town!

    This was our first experience at Yorgo's. Having been an icon in the city for decades, I'm embarrassed to have not tried it previously.....but Saturday was the day. I booked a table for 2 at Kefi.....we showed up and was taken upstairs to a lavishly decorated facility. Freshly, tastefully decorated mid-to-high end setting. as they dropped the menu off, I was surprised as it was not what I expected. I (we) wanted a more "bar-food" menu. I told the waitress my dilemma and she quickly headed downstairs to save us a table. we were greeted with the same pleasant host and escorted to a great table....this is what I was looking for....at this time! the beer selection is very good and diverse, the food portions wee very satisfying and the prices were in line with the the Lancaster market. My overall rating is high, so get in early, as they only have seating for 30, and about 14 at the bar!

    Great service and great food! We had the valentines special of duck with wild grain rice, asparagus and a raspberry sauce. The duck was cooked perfectly! Drinks are amazing and the Cesar salad was very good. Great restaurant for a special occasion and I cannot speak highly enough for the young mad that plays the saxophone, creates a great ambiance you cannot find at other restaurants in the area. We will certainly be coming back again!

    Valentines dinner. Unfortunately there was a special menu for the holiday, was looking forward to try other things on their actual menu. The margarita was horrible, was pretty much tequila and lime juice, might has well got a couple shots of tequila. The music on the saxophone was great, he was taking requests, we asked him to to play our wedding song, it wasn’t on him music reader thing so he played the actual song on the portable speaker. Everything else was great. Food was perfect.

    My wife and I were in a situation where we had 1 and a half hours before are next event and needed somewhere to eat. Kefi was the restaurant we decided upon. Are expectations were exceeded! We booked a table for two on OpenTable. We were greeted by the Maitre d' who identified that we booked a table for two at Kefi, which was upstairs. We were seated promptly. Drink orders were taken quickly. The atmosphere was perfect for our conversation. Our food was very good. Will definitely be back!
