    The food and waiter were amazing. We had an 815 reservation and were told to leave at 1040 because they needed the table. We were never informed of a time limit. We spent a lot of money and it is disappointing to end the night in that situation.

    The food is delicious but a bit overpriced… and the restaurant nickel and dimes you. The portions are massive, as they are intended to share, and they only give you the equivalent of 2 pitas for the main course. If you want more (which you’ll need), they charge you $2 per extra pita. On a $250 meal, to charge extra for pita, so you can actually enjoy the your meal, seems a bit tacky. Our waitress also offered us dessert in honor of our friends birthday… and then charged us $16 for it. They pack so many tables into this place (tables are basically touching), and make so much money, that it’s sort of wild how ticky tacky they are with their costs.

    Food was good, but I felt it was overprice. The restaurant is beautiful but very loud and tables are so close together it is difficult to have a conversation as you are forced to try and speak over the table next to you. I think the biggest disappointment is 15 minutes after we paid, we were kicked out. Clearly this is not a European modeled restaurant as Europeans tend to relax during the meal and not rush I would not return

Obsessed with the lobster pasta and the lamb chops! One of the best I’ve had in the city! Would definitely recommend this place to friends and family! 10/10!!! ❤️

    Met a friend for Saturday lunch. We both ordered the the avocado toast w horta (dandelion greens) and poached egg, It was good. The service was disappointing, had to ask for sugar for coffee 2x, then no cream or half and half for the coffee, agreed to oat milk and waited another 5 min, then no spoon to mix the coffee. Also had to ask for refill on coffee.

    We were celebrating my fiancé’s birthday and had an amazing time! Chris was our server and was so friendly and helpful! He checked in on us very frequently so we never had to wave him down for anything They brought out a sparkler and 2 different desserts on the house for his birthday! The food was phenomenal, will definitely be coming back!

    Great decor and vibes, food and drinks were presented beautifully and delicious! Our server Saùl was so nice and attentive. I went for my bday and had a great time. We tried the breads & spreads, lamb chops, gyros, grilled chicken, meatballs and potatoes. The servings are big enough to share so if you go w/ friends try multiple things and share.

    Lyra never disappoints!! I love bringing out of town guests here, everything is just so good. We had a group of 5 and ordered so many things: spinach pie (to die for), fried eggplant dip, grilled shrimp, oysters two ways. The lamb gyro was bomb and can feed 2-3 people easily, and grilled chicken was also pretty good. One girl at the table ordered the deconstructed pasta which I thought was tasty!

    So, so much great food to choose from. We were here for brunch and could have ordered most of the menu. The gyros are fantastic! Nothing like the hot dog stand gyros. Very authentic. A must try.

    We were recommended to go to Lyra by our son. We liked the energy of the restaurant until we were seated in the side room which was removed, quiet and little ambiance. The service was rushed but well done. The drinks were good, the smoke salt on the Hades was delicious. We had the tuna which was yummy, the octopus was very good and the gyros were delicious(more smoked salt).

    I had an amazing time at Lýra! My friends and I (friends since elementary school) went to Lýra for dinner to catch up Saturday night. We were greeted warmly and the hostess sat us in a half booth/half table, perfect for my taller friend sit on the table side and easily exit in and out as needed. Our server, Ansel, greeted us immediately, took our drink orders and the busboy filled our waters right away too. Ansel's service was prompt, courteous, and kind throughout the evening. The managers even stopped by to make sure we were having a good time too! Our drinks were well-made, but be sure to read the description...I didn't realize the Hades comes with an actual pepper lol. I got the Pandora's Pom to follow and that was more my speed. We ordered a few appetizers to share and they were all amazing. We had a dozen oysters (half cooked, half raw), hummus & charred beets, charcoal grilled meatballs, and the crispy zucchini and eggplant. They were all perfect, we couldn't stop talking about how good they were! Great portions to share too. For the main course, we ordered the greek roasted half chicken, bouzoukia potatoes, charcoal grilled lamb chops, and the prime ribeye. We had plenty left over to take home! (We forgot to take photos because we were too busy digging in). Thank you for a great time with old friends, the atmosphere, design of the restaurant, and incredible service gave us a memorable experience together.

    Food was good but very over priced. I had marked that it was a birthday and they didn’t even ask us if we wanted dessert just handed us the check and basically ushered us out of the table. Felt very rushed. Food also came out extremely quickly. It seemed like every table was getting sparklers. Will not return

    Très bonne expérience culinaire. Rien à redire. Service au top. Le cadre très sympa, avec cette structure de bar aérienne et la cuisine ouverte. 2 points à améliorer : -le niveau sonore était très élevé même dans l’arrière salle. Très difficile d’entretenir une discussion. Pas adapté du tout à un repas d’affaires. -l’application indique un budget de $30 ou moins, or on en a eu pour $190 par personne incluant service et boissons. Un peu cher même si la cuisine en valait la peine.
