    This Greek restaurant is overpriced compared with any other Greek restaurant, but the food was good. No Saganaki which, I suppose, is too mundane for this restaurant. We really like Greek Islands which is closed on Mondays.

    Three of us dined at Lyra and this was at least the 10th time I have personally dined at Lyra and the food was great as always, but our server Anastasios was phenomenal. All three of us commented how attentive he was even though he was busy and we didn’t order an expensive bottle of wine. I have eaten at hundreds of restaurants and this was some of the best service I have ever received.

    Horrible experience.. we went for Valentine’s Day dinner. Small portions for a $125. Our waitress was great but overall not worth it.

    I love Lyra, but the Valentine's day deal was such a rip-off. Walking in and getting seated at a table with 2 other couples was not the night I had planned for a special holiday. Also, walking out of there $400 in the hole for a subpar night has left a sour taste in my mouth.

    Didn't tell us our reservation was only going to be limited to a Valentine's tasting menu in any emails, texts, it social media posts prior for our reservation, seemed very poorly executed and a way to scam money out of patrons

    Waiter was great. We did mostly veggies. Recommend the hummus if you like beets. Cauliflower was good. More than 2 can eat. Scallop didn’t seem worth it given all the topping. Will go again and check out some of the mains.

    We waited almost a half hour past our reservation time to be seated, stood in a crowded group of others also waiting, no bar seating available. uncomfortable and unimpressed with the lack of accommodation during the wait time, had to stand around awkwardly in the entranceway…

    Probably worst spot that we could have end up for our wedding anniversary. The fancy name of the sunset room is nonetheless like a diner that you go for breakfast. The portions were extremely small and we ended up only having appetizers and one drink each. If you're going to make a main room all fancy and beautiful, why would you have a side room with popcorn ceilings and Ikea tables?

    We made a reservation for the main room weeks in advance but we were placed in their sunset room which has a cheap dinner like feel and really mediocre decorated compared to the main room … I would not even associate it with Lyra … the wine cellar room has a bit more elevated feel. The food was really good but I would not come back because of this subpar experience

    Cute ambience, our server Zoya was GREAT, the food was good too. However the tuna tartar was super salty, the drinks were good but weak and I get the wanting to keep things moving but felt rushed out. Even the manager came up to us to get things moving, politely- kinda killed the vibe towards the end. He was really nice about it. But for 6 people we weren’t even there 2 hours. I think better for like 2 person dinner.

    AMAZING!! Our server, Zoya, was awesome; knowledgeable, not pushy, very friendly and attentive. The food was absolutely incredible and the portions were generous. We shared everything between 4 people and had plenty with 2 entrees and 4 apps. The Manhattan was perfect. Definitely go for the lamb gyros, moussaka and breads and spreads.. they will appear in my dreams 😅 Overall great experience and would highly recommend, especially for a special occasion!
