Come to Local Greek and experience Greece without leaving Princeton!
Local Greek is your place to gather with family, friends and neighbors to share simple dishes, big flavors, and new-old tradition. We welcome you to enjoy authentic tapas, decadent pastries and imported specialty goods that bring the tastes of Greece close to home.
Service is always friendly here. It’s a small dining room, so on a full night there is a lot of squeezing around between tables. Save room for dessert and coffee!
We were seated quickly but were so squashed between our table and the one next to us that my husband and I couldn't get in or our without having 3 people at the table next to us get up to move. Food was good, but not as good as I've had in the past. Zucchini fritters were undercooked. Everything else was great. Noise level is quite high until after main dinner rush.
Flaming cheese is amazing!!
Consistent great food - Tony has a winner - I would suggest its the best Greek in the area by far
Food was not that great
Had a lovely brunch with friends before the Princeton-Harvard football game. They enjoyed it and want it to be our "go-to" place. Tomato fresco was delicious, as good as shakshuka. Good service and nice array of choices, everyone enjoyed their dishes. Was a bit loud for conversation but nice ambience.
Food and service was exceptional. Best greek food in the area. Will definitely be returning.
Delicious gyro and Greek salad.
We had a wonderful meal celebrating a friend’s birthday!
Really enjoy our time at Local Greek. Buzy and lively place with cozy tables. Everything was great!
Terrific fresh food. Restaurant is small and on the noisy side.
My family loves this restaurant. My brother in-law is Greek and said the food here is better than in Greece. This weekend he drove 2.5 hours just to eat here. Everything is delicious. Get the flaming cheese for an appetizer. Share the Loukrmades for dessert. Bring your favorite wine. Make a reservation! On a Sunday it was pretty empty at 4:30. By 6 PM the place was full. Great wait staff. Super friendly.
This taverna type restaurant is a very special place. It feels very festive and the food is very good, inventive but very typical with generous servings. The service was topnotch and overall, it felt like a place where everyone was truly enjoying their meals and company they were sharing. It just fosters that kind of vive.
The food was incredible. The staff extremely enthusiastic and very helpful. We had two diners with food allergies/sensitivities and they were extremely accommodating. The ambiance was lovely. Clean and bright with lovely decor and nice nods to Greek traditions. Definitely recommend. We will be returning!
One of my favorite places in Princeton. It is absolutely fantastic every single time! I get something different every time I visit and it is always delicious!
Authentic and Delicious Greek Cuisine! And...service is great!
We really enjoyed our first meal there and hope to return soon
Good if you enjoy food with your salt. Everything ordered had been salted beyond words. Their business must cater only to those who like heavy salt. There was even a large salt shaker on the table in case you need more. We had a salty aftertaste well into the next day. Not healthy, won’t return.
Wonderful as usual
Wonderful neighborhood restaurant. Excellent Greek menu!
Tried Local Greek for the first time and can't believe it took so long to come here. Place has a nice, modern vibe inside, although today we decided to eat lunch outside. Ordered the kale salad and a pork gyro to share. Food was fresh and delicious. Portions were nicely sized as well, either for one or to share. The toasted pita bread basket is a nice touch. Wait staff was attentive and friendly. Service was timely and efficient. Will be back here to try dinner and this time I'm not waiting this long. This is a hidden gem.
Very pleasant dinner. We ordered two simple Greek dishes: moussaka and stuffed peppers. Both were excellent, and portions were generous.
Excellent meal and overall experiential.
Food is fresh, tasty, and service is fun and non-obtrusive.
Fantastic brunch. Loved the falafel and focaccia egg sandwich. Service was great. Will definitely go back to try more dishes.
So happy I found this neighborhood restaurant. I love Greek food, and usually only eat it in NYC. Food was awesome especially the stuffed eggplant. Service was awesome. Cute decor. Noise level was very high. Hard to hear table conversation.
Excellent, nice change, keep up the good work.
We will be returning.
A little loud and tables very closebut that added to the ambience, Taverna style.
Excellent menu, authentic, delicious Greek cuisine! Delightful, great service and gluten free items noted.
They should check with Wild Four Bakery, Lawrenceville to add their flatbread to those delicious Greek meals in case one would like with a gyro. Highly recommend!
After a very good dinner a while ago, I tried this restaurant for a lunch. Once again, I enjoyed a great meal with very friendly and efficient service.
Delicious food (I love the grape leaves and spicy feta while my husband raved about the chicken lemon soup and octopus) and excellent service (thank you, Dublas)! Definitely pricey but for a nice lunch or dinner date well worth it!
We’ve been going to Local Greek since it opened. Love the food but the service continues to be an issue. Its not a comfortable dining experience. Everything os a rush, as the customer you have to slow the wait staff down or they bring appetizers out with the main course. We’ve learned to only order the appetizers then when we are ready we order our main course, but you have to keep pushing the wait staff away, they dont get it. 4 for diner this past Saturday and they had us out in less then one hour! Not good you feel like you cannot enjoy the food or the evening. Also the noise level is so intense that it is difficult to have a normal conversation I chalk that up to the restaurant is trying to pack as many people in as possible and turn the tables over as quickly as possible. Making money is understandable but its not the “Greek” experience you would like given the atmosphere and quality of food. Experience is “Greek Fast Food”. Did even want to stay for their delicious deserts. Too bad!!!
We love breakfast/brunch at Local Greek. Wonderful food, fun coffee drinks, friendly service, and we love sitting outside (but they have plenty inside seating with AC as well if that’s more your thing)!
Exceptional food, service, value, and management!
Everything was very good! Our waitress was terrific. We enjoyed it and would definitely go back.
Quick and efficient service
Hummus and dolmades were delicious
Under seasoned kebabs and vegetable Moussaka that tasted like it Came out of the freezer were disappointing
Dessert with Filo and custard was amazing
The food was delicious and the prices were fair!!!
For breakfast only. The food is very average. There are fun ideas but nothing outrageously delicious.
The food is so fresh and authentically Mediterranean. Staff was lovely and accommodating.
I had my birthday here (18 people) and they accommodated us very very well!! Love the ambiance and food, and the waiters were so sweet i could cry. Thanks for an awesome birthday!!
Very good food and service; wide variety on menu.
