Our first visit and it was great. Food and wine choices were excellent and the preparation and flavor was superb. My wife had the salmon and she called it one of the best ever. I had the rotisserie pork and the flavor was so good that I’m ready to go back soon for a repeat.
The olive oil chocolate mousse with sea salt was wonderful.
What a great find. Just a couple of blocks down Franklin with an excellent public parking facility directly behind the restaurant. The leg of lamb was moist and delicious. Great selection of desserts, so take something home for later. We will definitely visit Kipos the next time we are in CH.
I cannot rave enough about Kipos. The food and the people are simply spectacular. Every flavor, every aroma, every bit is truly extraordinary - a fabulous dining experience. The service is so gracious, anticipating any need, that it's truly magical.
Great waiter sterling
Excellent restaurant! We went for my husband’s birthday dinner and it was perfect. The atmosphere was nice and service was outstanding. We’ve been here on several occasions and will definitely be back!
Great food, great service, great atmosphere! The pick your 4 sauces appetizer was amazing! The entrees were wonderful, I had the beef ribs with orzo. So amazing! Dessert was unbelievable too! Cheesecake highly recommended! Go to Kipos!!!
Amazing cocktails, especially the one with the smoked tequilla!
My co-worker and I went to Kipos Greek Tavern while in town for business. Neither of us had eaten at an authentic Greek restaurant before, so we decided on this one based on the reviews. Boy were we happy that we did! We ordered a couple smaller items from the menu (warmed feta with pita bread, grilled squid, and meatballs (that he even got a second order of lol)) and the rotisserie lamb, in which every bite was phenomenal! It was one of the best meals either of us have ever eaten. We talked about it for hours after. Our waiter was very polite and informative with suggestions that he thought we would like. The drinks were crafty with cucumber and orange ice cubes, as well as delicious. We will definitely return to have a meal next time we visit Chapel Hill!! Or maybe just to go back and eat again!
Food delicious, waiters attentive, great ambiance, a bit noisy for conversation.
Kipos is our restaurant of choice each time we are in the area. Always a great meal.
Always enjoy the food and wine. Delicious! The atmosphere is very nice also.
Spur of the moment decision and reservations on Friday night. I'd been there before but others in the party had not. Everyone was thrilled with their meals. Fish Place was especially good as was the lamb special. Very happy and will not wait so long to return.
We loved it! Food was great and fresh. We choose to share small plates and experience more flavors. All the dishes came out delicious.
Took almost an hour for appetizers to come out, and the entrees followed about 2 minutes later.
Service was terrible. The waiter seemed very nice and accommodating, but he was never available. There were numerous mistakes in our orders and we were spending most of our evening trying to flag down anyone to come to the table and help us. They seem to have waiters absolutely everywhere, but never at our table. The food was fine, but I won’t go back again.
Food is always fresh and tasty! Service is great. Olive oil is fantastic.
Food was excellent as always.
Food was good, but not exceptional. Calamari was overcooked and came with no sauce, and it really needed something. Service was very good on a crowded evening. Seating is too close, very difficult to get to and from table without bumping into people seated at nearby tables.
My first time eating lunch in Kipos; often go for dinner. Appreciated the variety of options and our server’s recommendation of the delicious special. Very relaxing with our after lunch coffee and dessert.
Always a good meal and a great atmosphere! Love it!
Great atmosphere and food! Highly recommend.
Great food and atmosphere. Good service.
The food here is great. The night we went, they had live music. We really enjoyed our meal here!
Very good food and experience
The food is very good and dessert was so delicious!
I enjoyed very much the way the place is decorated.
The experience was so great that I returned for lunch two days after my first visit!
Was visiting Raleigh/Durham area and luckily came upon the restaurant. Food was good, ambience really nice.
Food was great! Atmosphere is fun. Server was very nice and gave a wine suggestion when I asked for one and it was delicious. Had a great time!
three of us met to participate in Restaurant Week - and two of the group had specific dietary restrictions, which we described to the server. One was vegan and one has celiac so gluten free was required. There were misprints and misinformation provided to us regarding what foods on the price fixe were gluten free, so that person did not order from the price fixe menu. The person who was vegan tried a few times to order items off the regular menu but they came back wrong. A simple greek salad which was ordered without feta cheese, no olives and extra tomatoes with dressing on the side came out with none of those items delivered as requested. She asked for a potato dish and 20 mins later was told they were out of potatoes, but they had french fries. Finally she was able to order one of the eggplant dips, but the pita bread never showed up.. until we were almost done with the lunch! The server was frankly overwhelmed and distracted. The restaurant manager came to help clear things up, and comped our desserts, which was appreciated. Our requests weren't all that complicated!! This restaurant needs to work harder on providing service to people with special dietary needs.
Kipos has improved since I last went there. The food is authentically Greek, the surroundings are very pleasant, and the service is very good.
First visit. I got the lamb chops and my wife got the salmon. Both were outstanding. Not being familiar with Greek wines, we needed a wine recommendation. Waiter got three recommendations from the bartender. Nice to have options. The one we selected was perfect. Appetizers and bread were great. Desserts were excellent. The waiter, Ilias, was friendly and attentive. We'll be back.
Great service and great food!
Daughter's request to celebrate #21 birthday in your restaurant...interesting that none of us drank any alcohol for the celebration. The staff was outstanding. The hostess was welcoming and accommodated our personal birthday cake. The waiter was equally gracious and responsive. The food was delicious. Every one of us enjoyed the food. The interior is bright and pleasant. We will be back. Thank you.
Our salmon was to come with orzo which is not a pasta my partner wanted. We asked for a vegetable exchange and I quote "...a hard NO." The manager did help us make the exchange, we got a nice kale instead. All was great until the bill came. We were charged twice for our non alcohol Virgin Mary. We had one, charged for two. When we asked for our bill to be corrected they said that since the drink was straight up (no ice) they charged double. 9$ for a virgin mary was unfair in my opinion. I am not sure I could drink 9$ worth of tomato juice at one meal
One of our very favorite restaurants, for special events and special dining out!!
I have been to Kipos several times and have always loved the experience. I made reservations for myself and two friends, one of whom had never been before. While the ambiance was great (as always) both the food and the kitchen service was not great. I have always LOVED all the food I have ordered in my previous visits, and this time the dishes (both that I ordered and that my friends ordered) were just ok. And the kitchen took a very long time getting our order out! Both of these two things I have not experience before. It has been over a year sine I have been to Kipos, but I am hoping it was just a fluke. Our server was very friendly and attentive. He tried his best to answer our many questions. We still enjoyed our evening despite these hiccups.
Went for lunch on restaurant week. Amazing food and excellent service. I would highly recommend and look forward to returning many times.
Although the food was good the seating is crowded and tables are small. The waiter didn't return to refill waters until he gave us our bill.
The Lamb sandwich was tough .was unable to chew
i did not send back because i thought the other half of sandwich would be ok. Not!
Excellent food , beautiful places, perfect service.
This was the fourth or fifth time we have dined at Kipos. As always the food and the service were excellent. I would recommend this restaurant for its authentic Greek food and atmosphere.
