    our waiter was amazing at his job and very kind The food was not as good as I recall we went there to hear the Gree music at first we sat inside but between the air blowing, the music and people it was not pleasant. I think because people had to talk over the air food was good but the Greek salad missed olive oil and was put on a plate as to give the illusion you are getting more but its less. Who puts a salad on a plate? than I ordered something my grandmother made for me greek yogurt, with walnuts and honey. LEt me tell you there was a pinch of honey. I know restaurants have been hit hard and that is why we go out to eat to support our local restaurants but certain things I could not keep silent about. Again, everyone, there was super friendly. One last thing they do not have ERW and I had to bring my own water.

    Kitchen was a mess. Took an hour to get a salad. one entree comes a half hour after that. Second entree comes fifteen minutes later. Appetizers were slated to come after that (we had to refuse them at that point). Loukaniko well undercooked. On the grilled platter for two, there were literally six French fries. Unfortunate, been here numerous times and have told many people to try this place over Cyclades, but it seems like they’ve started to mail it in.

    Restaurant couldn’t find our reservation and blamed it on the fact we made it too close to the dining time, despite the fact it was over an hour and a half prior to arriving. We had to wait 20+ minutes to be seated. Once seated, we again waited to be served and our order taken.

    Thought to give this place one more chance however every time I leave I find the food very unsatisfying and basically tasteless. The grilled pork chops over done, had to saw through it. My fillet of sole had no flavor at all. It’s a shame.

    The only negative (I had to dig deep to find one) is that the 2 of the things that I ordered were not available. One was a cocktail in from the drink menu and the other an entree. I just wish that those items would be removed from the menu if the ingredients are unavailable. Other than that, everything was excellent. Will be going back again!

    Every single time I go to Maria’s I ask my husband why we don’t go more often. First of all, the food is excellent. Consistently wonderful, not over the top, and needs no modification. The staff has always been attentive, easy, and incredibly accommodating (I have two kids under three). We try to dine out in larger spaces that aren’t crowded so my children don’t ruin other people’s meals and when we are here, busy or slow, we have always felt at ease and welcome. And the oil is incredible. We absolutely love coming here.

    The service and food was wonderful and I found the prices to be very good considering how special the whole dinner was from the service, quality of food to the ambiance. Little extras go a long way like chickpeas, Olives and special carrots served with pita bread upon being seated. The atmosphere was cozy and felt very Mediterranean rustic. Dim lights and low noise level. Lovely.

    Just love everything about Maria's. One of the few places I've been to where vax cards were actually checked. Beautifully decorated, even with plastic separating the tables. Server was friendly and helpful. We had the lunch special and both of us were delighted. The grilled shrimp were ample and delicious. The stuffed portobello was equally wonderful. Go and enjoy!!

    Authentic and fresh, this was delicious Greek food with a creative flair. Traditional dishes were flavorful with large portions, and Chef Maria adds some creative touches not to be missed. I was a bit skeptical of blueberry baklava until my first mouthful, and the Tahini ice cream was a bonus. This is a neighborhood gem, every bite an adventure or a memory - of food, family and connection. Thank you for a wonderful lunch!

    Outdoor dining felt like being on a mini Mediterranean vacation. Our party of six enjoyed the food and service. The food was excellent overall. One appetizer came out late and was cold. Everything else ran smoothly. The Spanakopita, Moussaka and fish dishes were delicious. Appetizers were excellent but a little pricey. The award winning blueberry baklava was amazing!.
