Fish entrees were fresh and delicious although pricey. Drinks were delicious. Service was good.
Exceptional food and our waiter Andre was very knowledgeable and attentive! Just an overall good experience!
had a lovely dinner at lefkes the wait staff was attentive and helpful explaining the menu and the fresh seafood available that night.
Our dinner was a disaster. The waiter and staff could not bring out our appetizers in dinner in the correct order no matter how many times it was clarified. We did not make one modification on the food. Additionally, the wrong sushi was brought out, the vegetable side dishes were forgotten. It was a comedy of errors and while the waiter apologized no management came over. A drink at the bar might be ok - and some sushi but i would never have a "meal" here again.
Beautiful restaurant in a good location ..
Interesting menu options.
I’ll begin with, the menu was pre fix, so creativity of the kitchen was slightly stifled. The menu was for Valentine’s Day. Had been in the space when it was American Cut and they did a great job lightening the atmosphere both literally and figuratively. Much more of a Greek restaurant and less of a steak house (obviously). They did keep the bar which was a highlight of A.C. The food was “okay”, but again it was a pre fix menu. That said, we had the lobster bisque which was fairly void of lobster. The octopus appetizer was pretty solid with a great char, but not over-charred. The service, however, was quite lack-luster. The pace of courses was good, but the interactions and the service by the staff was just fair. They seemed to banging into each other (literally) and we noticed other tables having a tough time with order pace and poor communication... The complimentary strawberries were not noted as complimentary anywhere and the couple next to us asked about them. The wait staff actually said they didn’t know why they got them and took them away only to have them brought back by the manager with an apology.
Despite this evening, we will likely give them another shot - probably sit at the bar...
The food was fabulous and the service impeccable. I don't have a single disappointment in my experience at Lefkes and would recommend it to anyone that asked about it.
Simply excellent !!!
The food was very good, the service left much, very much to be desired. They admitted to being understaffed but that did not explain taking three of five entree orders and not until they delivered two other entree's did they tell us they were out of the other three meals? So we had to select other options after two in our party began eating...then it took about 20 minutes to deliver the three replacement meals, leaving two in our party to sit empty handed and wait for us to finish our entrees.
We were told the server had entered our entrees (Three of them) wrong causing the delay in advising us about the error but that made no sense. They bought us a round of drinks to "Compensate" us for the mistakes, not much by way of compensating us for a dissatisfying overall experience.
Good food nice place nice Bar
Great new Greek Restaurant in the neighbor. The food was good, but still lacked in the service area to have a perfect score... We will surely come back again.
AMAZINGLY DELICIOUS FOOD!!! We dined last week & had a marvelous time. If you like seafood, this place is for you! Everything is super fresh & delicious (displayed for you as you walk in), wonderful selection with a great atmosphere. We had the stuffed calamari, lobster sushi, lavraki with brussels sprouts and ink seafood risotto. Everything was absolute perfection. We can't wait to come back again!!!!
A gorgeous and delicious restaurant has come to our neighborhood. If they could tone down the noise I would say it is close to perfect.
Excellent. Our second time. Drink s were very good although slightly different than first time. Service was excellent as was the food. We did however prefer to be seated downstairs. Extremely comfy seating either way!
Just like the deliciousness we had in the Greek Isles this past Summer. Octopus on a bed of fava purée.....just like in Naxos! Potatas Lemonatas just like Milos! Mousakka croquettes just like in Santorini!! Lavratka whole fish was delicious with olive oil and light garlic.....so authentic.
Tremendous staff, so sweet was Zoe our waitress.
Mythos to wash this all down with a smile. Yiamas!!!!!!
I made a reservation for 6 for a birthday party. When the restaurant called to confirm the table they never told us that they were having a party there that night that was basically a mini Greek festival with a Greek band. We were told this for the first time when we arrived and we were informed that we would be seated upstairs. We decided to wait for the rest of our group at the bar downstairs. We stood there for about 10 minutes and watched as the patrons who were obviously there for this Greek party were served and we were totally ignored by the bartender who obviously knew them. We decided to be seated at the “table upstairs” hoping that we would have more luck getting a drink. We were seated in a small area that was almost directly above but slightly diagonal to the band downstairs. The waitress poured water and said she would be back to take the drink order. She never reappeared for at least 15 minutes. At that point we had been in the restaurant for almost 25 minutes with no cocktail. One of the members of our party was late and so we told the waitress we wanted to order because we were not going to wait any longer. When we finally got the drinks she disappeared again claiming she thought that we wanted to wait for the person who was late. We told her that we had already asked to order. The place was overrun with the party group downstairs at this point and there was only one waitress working upstairs. Again she disappeared. Meanwhile our birthday guest and the rest of us could not hear a word of our conversation. The band was unbearably loud- so loud that the wine in our glasses was shaking. At that point we started calling other restaurants asking if they could accommodate a party of six, which was impossible at 8:15. I told the manager we were leaving and he moved us to an empty room in the back that had a huge flat screen tv. We were so hungry that we agreed to sit there, but the night was ruined. Food was ok. They charged full price in spite of it al!
I found this restaurant to be one of the best in Northern New Jersey.
All aspects of dining were delightful and made for a very fine dining experience. Choices and food selections were excellent, well presented, and delicious.
A welcome addition to the area.
Still among our very favorites in the neighborhood, despite an inexplicable 20-minute delay having our lobsters deshelled in the kitchen.
Lefkes is the real deal for quality seafood, beautiful atmosphere and excellent service. Be ready to spend! Was a lovely evening.
Have been there 5 times. Started weak but has consistently improved since opening.
Very good fish!
Good location but I thought the food was quite expensive. Had the dover sole one time and another time had the levraki. Brussel sprouts and greek salad on the side. Was good but first time paid $80 per person, and another time paid $100 pp.
New year eve
Even on a prize fixe holiday menu, the choices are ample and the cuisine excellent. Go for the grilled Brussels sprouts whenever they have them.
Bad service starting from horrible hostess to waiting for servant for 20 min. So if you are willing to oversee those things food is pretty good.
The building is nice but feels like a bar rather than a restaurant, very loud, could not easily hold a conversation at a table of 5 and had to nearly shout. The food was fair, not worth the cost either increase quantity or quality to justify the prices. Scallop appetizer consisted of 2 scallops with a bland sun choke puree that tasted similair to burnt hair. Hortopita was a decent appetizer and the feta moose was interesting and was a nice compliment to the pie. Later discovered was charged for Fagri instead of the American snapper that was ordered which is around 20 dollar price difference per pound. Halibut was bland and needed seasoning, texture felt more like scrod slightly on the overcooked side, the lentils felt undercooked and puree was very milky tasting. Hummus was too heavy on the tahini, felt more like a tahini paste only had a small amount to eat with the bread which was sliced oddly preventing you from tearing a decent slice off of the roll.
Outstanding in every way. We began out meal with well priced and well selected wines by the glass. The intriguing sushi was excellent, offering unique choices and sumptuous tastes. The selection of fresh fish was vast and each of our orders was prepared perfectly - not even one bone marred the experience. With a little bit of room for delicious desserts and cappuccino, our dinner was truly ‘out of this world’ excellent! Plus, the service was impeccable and the decor understated and lovely. Well worth a visit.
Overpriced and not great
food is very good. service could stand improvement
Great food. We had 3 mezes-Octopus, Spicy Shrimp and Sesame Seed Crusted baked Feta. All were top notch in presentation and taste. She had Halibut and I had Dover Sole. Both were very good, but the Sole was smaller than I have had elsewhere and a tad overcooked. Sides were Brussel Sprouts and Lemon Potatoes. Both very good also (though the latter was not the type of potato I ordered and comped). Desserts were a type of Galakteburiko for her and a Portokalopita cake for me. I liked mine, she wasn't crazy about hers. Service, as is often case living across the river from NYC, is not quite as good as in Manhattan. Desserts and 1 side was comped by very astute manager due to small service issues (that he noticed). We'll be back.
First time there, two couples for dinner on a Tuesday night. The place has great potential but needs to polish a few areas. Hostess was attentive and welcoming. Bartender made a bad negroni. Waiter was friendly and knowledgeable. The dining room was very loud but the place wasn’t overly busy. Appetizers took a while to arrive. Octopus was very tender. Brussel sprouts were fantastic. Squid ink risotto was too salty. The youvetsi was excellent. Water glasses were never refilled. They forgot our last drink order, though when they realized the mistake and finally brought the drinks they comped them. I’m hoping to hear that their service improves, it’s a great space in a very convenient location.
Heating wasn’t working properly
Over priced for the food. Brussel sprouts we over done mushy and very sweet, the fish was over cooked and very small portion for the price per lb $29. Service was slow and the restaurant was not crowded.
However, the baklava was delicious.
Overpriced and uncomfortably loud-there is no separation between dining room and bar and the entire downstairs is extremely noisy when crowded-
First time at this restaurant. We love Avra so we expected this to be good. We sat at the bar and Cherie took care of us. She is excellent. Will be back
Great dinner! Fresh seafood, excellent salads and dessert. New place only open two months, and if this is an indication, they’ll be around a long time.
Outstanding fresh seafood. The grilled Brussels sprouts are a special treat.
First time visit Saturday evening. Elegant and comfortable, nice atmosphere. The tables are nicely spaced so you don’t feel on top of one another. The staff couldn’t have been friendlier, had a drink at the bar before we sat down, thank you Rocky for the delicious cocktail suggestion. The food was excellent. We’ll definitely be back!
Excellent classic Greek cuisine in a gracious albeit noisy (Sat. Evening) setting. The grilled octopus, squid ink seafood risotto, and lamb chops were particularly noteworthy. Service was friendly, efficient, and highly professional. Prices were no bargain but not outrageous either—more or less in line with Manhattan standards.
