Wonderful Greek food and service. Excellent kebabs and rice. Mezze platter was amazing, and huge! The person who ordered it actually finished. Cauliflower and Brussels sprout appetizer was also very good. Enjoyed the village salad, but would have liked more lettuce. Finally, restaurant was spotlessly clean, which was very reassuring in view of current circumstances.

Flavorful food, fun atmosphere. Part of the "surprise" was blown by one of the people greeting us. Mentioned "the flowers are in the refrigerator!" Duh, the flowers were for the very person he told that to!

Overall a good experience. My only reason for the 4 star overall is that the food was slightly overcooked. However, the excellent wait staff was beyond reproach. They were friendly and always ready to assist in anyway possible.

I like the limited menu because EVERYTHING is great. Can only praise every dish. The Halloumi cheese is so Cypriot. Must try. The three dips are great for a starter. The salads are out of this world fresh. The calamari and artichoke appetizer is a cut above any you’ve had before done with feta and capers. The Mezze Board has something for everyone from lamb/beef gyro to homemade Greek sausages to marinated chicken along with Greek Parmesan fries and salad. Enough for two or even three. Very nice and reasonable wine list. And do save room for the decadent desserts...the apple one is out of this world!

We enjoyed our Valentine's Day dinner at Kovo very much. The food was great, service was great and the musician that was playing guitar was great as well. We will definitely be back.
Thank you!

I always love Kovo! We went for Valentine’s Day & they did not disappoint. They had a three course price fixe in addition to their regular menu. Food was fabulous, service excellent, & had a classical guitarist. We will continue to go to Kovo!

It was a surprise and great evening. Service was spot on. Our server was attentive and excellent. I had the meat platter which was delicious and a great value. It could easily be split between two. There was good music. It was Valentine’s Day, they had a special but we weren’t forced to buy an overpriced set menu. Good job Kovo.

The food at this restaurant is excellent! We have dined here before and most certainly will again. The only
problem was that while we were eating our appetizers, our salads and entrees all came out at the same time. We had our waitress take our entrees back to keep warm until we finished our appetizer and salads, which she did and when we were ready for them, they were very nicely kept warm. They had a live guitarist as well that was a very nice touch.

We love Kovo and go there as often as possible. Friendly staff and owners, interesting food and wines, and special Mediterranean dinners announced in advance. Great prosciutto, beef filet, and gyros. Light Greek salad, and bougatsa is a treat!

We always enjoy eating at Kovo! The belly dancer was fun (though music was hard to hear) We got to try some new items - and had enough to bring home for another meal. A win-win!

This was our second time at Kovo. We love it. Mediterranean food is just the best. It is so healthful. I had the chicken kebab. The rice pilaf and the Greek salad that accompanied the kebab were terrific. My husband loves the chicken gyro. Kovo is a big restaurant and it has a nice big bar and outdoor seating too.
Our server, Kim, was very pleasant and very good.

This is our 3rd dinner at Kovo and invited friends to join us. They loved it from the moment we walked in! Red pepper hummus is amazing—we cleaned the plate. Friend was in the mood for a cheeseburger and was SO happy. Guys ordered a mixed meat pita sandwich with fries—they truly could have shared it, but each were happy to have leftovers for lunch the next day. I had the grain salad plus gyro chicken and had leftovers, too. Big portions, friendly service and light and bright space makes it feel”nicer” than most Mediterranean restaurants we’ve tried. Can’t wait to go back when it’s warm enough to sit outside!

Our guests (who had lived in Greece for several years) raved about the food. The noise level was higher than usual but Kovo was really busy. We will be back.

KOVO with its genuine Greek ownership and menu is a regular on our dining list. Gyros choices are great and all staff friendly and congenial. Since I am a gyros fan I have not deviated so cannot comment on other items.
