    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!.

    A fun spot to meet up with friends, but very loud. Large family groups with unruly children, and a very loud Greek music band, made for a hilarious setting. Opa! The appetizers were good, but my lamb chops were tough.

    The food and service was excellent. The only problem was the I was asked if this was a special occasion on open table and I said it was my wife’s birthday there was no mention of it during dinner service. That was a little disappointing.

    The food was great. We were given a small tray of free antipasto if slice marinated carrots, olives & been salad served with pita. Super tasty. We ordered chicken avelemano soup & it too was super tasty! We ordered another appetizer tray with 6 spreads and served with pita. It was really tasty too however the spread with caviar was a little too fishy for my taste but I’m sure it was full of Omega-3s. After all the appetizers we were almost full so we only ordered the sardines meal for our main entree & ordered lemon potatoes. The meal was awesome! We will be back!! This place is a hidden gem! The outdoor seating was really cute!
