Up and down the wonderful menu, from grilled calamari to zucchini pancakes and shrimp to lamb chops this was as good as it gets. So much care taken in the preparation and it shows.

A long menu containing many familiar and some unfamiliar Greek dishes. The food is outstanding, portions are generous, and the entire staff is friendly and helpful. Also, the best red sangria I've ever had anywhere!
This was our first visit, but we'll be back (and will ring friends). What a find!

I gotta be honest, some of these reviews are a bit pretentious. Cloth napkins? Ok. 🤦‍♀️ the food here is outstanding, and Armonk has struggled for YEARS in the past to get some great restaurants here that aren’t priced like a night out in the city. The food at Meraki is authentic, fresh and high quality. My go-to for Greek in this area used to be Lefteris, but they’ve gone down hill since they started opening more locations. Meraki is now our fave date night spot. The salads are fresh, the meat is cooked well, and it’s easy to dry out chicken breast. The gyro is the best I’ve had, and there isn’t a better tzatziki in Westchester except for Elia in Bronxville…and that is the same owner as Meraki!! The prices are totally fair, especially for Armonk. Armonk doesn’t need another expensive restaurant. Meraki is the perfect middle ground. The service at Meraki is attentive, and the host is probably the best and friendliest host in the area. He is enthusiastic, welcoming, knowledgeable about the food, and always has a smile on his face. Also, whoever said to skip the potato rounds is out of their mind. The potato rounds are FANTASTIC! Meraki, I hope that the small, beautiful, bougie community of Armonk doesn’t run you out. You are the best Greek food in northern Westchester!

Authentic Greek food in Armonk...We ordered appetizers and entrees. The grilled octopus was some of the best I've had; the taramasalata was way too salty, inedible, disappointing. Our entrees were all excellent: lamb kebab and chicken souvlaki. For sides, skip the potato rounds; I did enjoy my side dish of sauteed greens very much. Service was spotty, we waited a very long time to have our drink order taken and brought; but the food all came quickly. I would give it a second try.

Even though the waiter recapped my order I was brought the wrong main course. When I asked him about it he did not know if it was the correct thing and had to go ask someone. He came back and said it was wrong and they would quickly redo. I sat there for 1/2 hour waiting for my food while my husband finished his meal. His meal along with my wrong meal was brought out while he was still eating his appetizer.

I know times are rough and restaurants are short hand but to sit there for 1/2 hour being ignored while they redid my meal was unacceptable. There also was no follow up after they brought my correct meal to see if it was okay and see if I wanted anything else. When I finished someone came over to ask if we wanted dessert but absolutely no apology was offered.

This was my third time in the past month visiting this restaurant and will be my last. I understand mistakes happen but there was no reason for them to treat me so poorly. I will be taking my business elsewhere to someone who needs and appreciate my business.

We arrived at restaurant @12:30. They were vacuuming! Then washing floors. Later when I went to rest room about 1 hr later, they were finishing up cleaning. While I appreciate cleanliness, couldn’t they have picked better times, like prior to opening or after closing!

Must say food good

Food good. Service very poor and inexperienced.
Main course arrived as we were eating appetizers.
And, give me a break, cheap paper napkins. Ugh!
Get better waiters and cloth napkins and perhaps
I could be convinced to return, maybe.

First time at this restaurant-excellent experience from start to finish. Noise level inside was somewhat loud upon arrival. After the table next to us left, we could carry on a conversation without raising our voices. The food was outstanding, delicious, fresh & well prepared ( many of our entrees were fish.) The staff was very attentive and friendly. The serving of the food was not rushed but not slow-just right. It was such a pleasant experience in so many ways. I would highly recommend this restaurant & will definitely return!

Our first visit to Meraki and it won't be our last! Food was fantastic, atmosphere lovely and accommodating, and the staff could not be more warm and friendly from start to finish. We met the owner and learned he formerly owned another of our favorite Greek restaurants, so it was not difficult to realize why this menu was outstanding as well.
We are Greek so easy to critique! Want real Greek cuisine, visit Meraki, you won't be disappointed.

My husband and I were absolutely blown away by this meal from start to finish! The evergreen menu is full of go-to Greek staples, and the robust list of specials featured unique items that made it difficult to decide what to order! We were greeted by the chef, who shared with us his favorite dishes.

Per his suggestion, we started with the Cyprian meatballs, which were like nothing we've ever had before! My husband described it as "a cross between a Greek meatball and a latke"; what's not to love?! The Ktapodi (grilled octopus) was perfectly cooked and the portion was very generous. We also shared a cauliflower appetizer from the specials menu (for which I can't remember the name!) but that was outstanding as well.

For our entrees, we shared a Greek salad and the Mixed Grill platter (yes, we over-ordered!). The salad was excellent; the real block feta was DELISH, and the dressing was light and didn't overpower the fresh produce. Every item in the mixed grill platter was juicy, tender, flavorful, and perfectly cooked. The standout of the dish, however, were the Round Fries. Thin, crispy, and coated in sea salt and a blend of herbs, the round fries are what I'm going to be dreaming about until my next visit.
