    We celebrated my husband’s birthday at Lyra and we were blown away by the food, ambience, and service. We frequently dine out at higher end restaurants and have been disappointed by a few of them. Lyra exceeded our expectations in every way. Most importantly, our server Serafeim was attentive and extremely helpful when selecting our appetizers and entrees. The entire staff was friendly and made us feel so welcome. The manager came over to personally thank us for dining with them and sent a birthday dessert. We will definitely visit Lyra again!

    Great service and cool space. The food misses the mark, especially if you're seeking out Modern Greek cuisine. It's over-priced for embarrassingly small portions.

    Food was amazing as always, but we were a party of 7 and we were celebrating a birthday. Most of the food there is family style (which we love), but they had us order everything at once (which is normally fine), but they did not space out the food at all and everything came at once. We felt very rushed as they were clearing away dishes before we even had a chance to completely finish. We asked them to slow down the orders, but by this point is was too late and everything was already at our table.

    If you’re looking for a TGIF experience then that’s what you’ll have. Very limited menu, uninspired cooking, my Bronzino “special” was mushy and unappetizing so I left it on the plate. The server did not ask if something was wrong with it (TGIF) and everything is way overpriced. Will not return.

    Date night on a Friday and this place did not have the midnight performance. This tends to be the highlight of dining at this establishment and they simply just cancelled it. If we knew it wasn’t happening we wouldn’t have booked dinner so late. Be wary of purchasing this experience on OpenTable as a minimum spend of $150 per person is required and even if you book a 10 pm slot and you’re in the dining room you’ll see whatever is supposed to take place at midnight

    Incredible service. Our meal was delicious. We had the halloumi, fired zucchini and eggplant, potatoes, fresh fish of the day with olive oil and lemon and lamb chops. Everything was outstanding! Both desserts we ordered, the puffy filo with ice cream and the fried donuts were delicious! We will definitely be back!

    Honestly one of the best experiences I’ve had going to a restaurant! The staff was so warm and welcoming, our server was the best! He was attentive, told us about Greece and some of the places we should visit while recommending a good wine, and made sure to celebrate my birthday even though I hadn’t said anything about it and had just marked the event on OpenTable; I wish I remembered his name >.< (I think it was something like Angelicio but I could be wrong 😅) Let’s not forget the food! Everything tasted amazing and it comes served as family style so everyone can share. Honestly 10/10 would recommend and I’ll be sure to come back again!

    I had an incredible experience. Service was phenomenal, our waiter checked on us at least 4 to 5 times throughout the one hour dinner. The dinner menu options are quite extensive and are very vegetarian friendly, which is important seeing as I am plant-based. It was incredibly beautiful inside and quite lively because of the bar.

    This was our first visit to Lyra and we really enjoyed it. The food is tasty and the vibe is lively. We had the halloumi and tuna tartare appetizers and the lamb gyro entree. Very tasty! Doughnuts for dessert were the perfect finish to our meal. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful with excellent suggestions. We will be back.

    We were an all veg group. There were great options for us - we got the halloumi (super tiny portion - literally 2 bites), spanakopitakia, spanakorizo, crispy potatoes, and Brussels sprouts and moussaka. The Brussels sprouts, halloumi and the spreads platter were our fave. The moussaka is not something I would order again, was way too sweet. There was another dish we wanted to get that was marked veg on the menu but our server told us it’s fried in the same oil as shellfish which was very disappointing. For dessert, the chocolate tart was amazing.

    We had a great time. The service from the moment we arrived was incredible, starting with the manager and hostesses who were friendly, profesional and very accommodating, followed by the server, Nicole, who was superb. The food was excellent, especially the grilled octopus appetizer and branzino fish dinners. Equally as tasty were the different deserts we tried. This restaurant is very popular and very crowded and unfortunately very noisy. It is so noisy that it is difficult for the guests to have a simple conversation. It would be very helpful if the restaurant’s management lowered the volume of the music until 9-10:00 PM or until the party starts late at night. But despite the noise, we loved it.

    Our waiter was amazing and very accommodating. He was the best part of the visit. While the food was delicious, value for money was ridiculous with the Halloumi - $11 for two bites?! $22 for four bites?! The size of the octopus for $28 was insulting. The salads are also missing the lovely greens that you used to provide. They are all filled with grains which make them difficult to digest - I am gluten free - I should be able to get a salad that is not full of grains. More greens please - go back to your old salads.

    Overall a great experience, nice ambiance and great service. Food is great but just a bit overpriced for certain items given the simplicity of the dishes. What is not overpriced these days! The place is very popular so it can get quite full and noisy after 6:30pm Staff is nice and attentive, fast and accommodating service. The floor manager was very receptive and open to suggestions or constructive criticisms about the food or service.

    I love Lyra and the ambiance. I celebrate my birthday dinner there every year! The only thing I find unfortunate is that every year now I have made dinner reservations for my birthday dinner, I have been sat almost an hour after my intended reservation leaving us to rush through dinner to be able to carry on with our night, due to the server letting us know that the kitchen will be closing soon. We had also requested the dessert with the birthday sparkler and our waitress failed to bring that out. I would still recommend Lyra to anyone I just hope the service will be better in the near future!

    This is not a restaurant and should not be advertised as such. It’s so loud you can’t hear the person next to you. Waiters are high focusing on selling you drinks only. Absolute disaster.
