    Food and Service at Kipos is always very good. Our wait staff were very attentive and everyone had a great time. It would be nice to turn down the background music as the place is already pretty loud.

    We went here for the first time for dinner. We had a reservation for just after they opened for dinner and we were one of the first tables to sit. The hostess was very kind and did point out they would be having live music and did we want to sit near it or further in the back. We chose the back. The atmosphere and decor were very welcoming and stylish. The open kitchen was a wonderful surprise. We had Carol as our waitress and she was outstanding!!! She gave a wonderful wine and dessert recommendation. We wanted for nothing. The fresh made pita and Skordalia and Saganaki were outstanding. We all has the Pastitsio which was divine. We will definitely be back!!!

    Due to the heat we were able to be accommodated inside at a table that afforded us privacy. We had wonderful glasses of white wine although pricey at $14 each. The food was as usual excellent. Our server, Roman, was attentive but not obtrusive.

    Our second time here, this time we brought the whole family! With six of us we had 5 different entre dishes with 7 different appetisers, and we tasted all of them. Everyone was impressed, (including 2 who work in the food industry)!! The week night resulted in a reduced crowd and our wait person (Joe) was attentive to our needs and knowledgable about the menu and possible wine matches with the dishes and appetisers we ordered. Kipos is another resounding success for Bakatsias!!

    I started with the Santorini Sunrise which was as tasty as it was photogenic. The Kalamaria and all the other appetizers were fantastic. Our entrees were also delicious along with the phenomenal wines that our waiter, Spencer, recommended. Then to top it all off, the Olive Oil Chocolate Mousse, amazing. Fabulous meal.

    Kipos never disappoints. The food is fresh and artfully presented. Portions are ample and sharing a variety of dishes makes a very festive party. The staff is some of the best and most capable in the Triangle. And who knew Greek wine was so delicious?

    Mediocre food at high price, horrendous (albeit friendly) service. Not sure what happened (missed items, dirty dishes left on table, dry, tough lamb, ignored requests, terrible timing on meals delivered to table, near inedible desserts) but it sucked badly at over $65 a head with no alcohol. Been here before and it was great, but you really blew it on my daughter's graduation dinner.

    The lunch for 3 was 82 dollars. 1 appetizer 3 entrees moussaka no flavor. 1 bottler of sparking water 8 dollars I know the food got expensive due to gas increase, however as restaurant owner you should take in consideration and maybe not making 25% on your food cost Greediness never gets anywhere

    We had a delicious brunch at Kipos. We were a 6 top. The restaurant was busy and as a lot of restaurants seems to be short staffed. Our servers were wonderful just had too many tables to take care of. We will be returning.

    Service and the food was poor at best. I ordered Briam which was loaded with potatoes and carrots, one piece of eggplant and NO zucchini. When I complained to the waiter he said he would tell the chef. That was the end of that. Waiter didn’t ask if he could get me something else, nor ask the chef to put some zucchini in my entree. My husband’s entree was pork which he said was gristly and the eggs were like rubber they were so overcooked. I wrote to the general manager and received NO response. My family has been going to Kipo’s for years for celebrations, all the time spreading the word how great this place is. Never again will we return. The lack of response from the manager is inexcusable.

    Small food portion for the expensive price. Ordered a salmon dinner entree that supposed to come with rice, spinach and carrots. Salmon was good but there was barely any rice and small pieces of carrot but lots of spinach.

    Sat out on the lovely patio and enjoyed the summer 2022 Triangle Restaurant Week and will definitely be back! So many outdoor seating is right on top of a busy street or parking lot, but Kipos outdoor seating is tucked away in a lush paradise with fans. The food was also delicious.
