    If you have 2 hours to sit and wait for appetizers then this is the restaurant for you. We tried to order a maple bacon old fashion, a girl scout cookie old fashion, a turtle brownie, then a walnut ice cream guess what out of them all . Waitress was not welcoming at all, actually she was rude to be honest. Watched the management come out for problems at least 5 times during visit. Will not be going back.

    Skopelos at New WorldResponded on September 8, 2020I am incredibly sorry to read about the issues on Saturday, Calley, and that we were out of several things you wanted. That is not a typical situation here, and we hope we can invite you back to experience the Skopelos experience we're known for. I'll reach out to you privately now.

But, she will be off tonight to celebrate her Mother's 50th Birthday! Jalynn was fantastic! We really like the Rewards program. Eager to try the other restaurants one day soon! Melodie Shatzer

    Went for Mezes Madness tried 6 dishes that were all good. Grouper cheeks and crab mousaka were fantastic. Gyro nachos and fried oysters very tasty as were the Greek fries (homemade chips with feta and herbs). Risotto balls with goat cheese were good but could have done without. For small plates generous servings.

    We had a lovely girls brunch. But there was a confusion about the menu. We thought we were there for the 3 course August special, but apparently it’s only available at night. It didn’t specify that on the website, it said it was available everyday through August.

    Skopelos at New WorldResponded on August 24, 2020We're so glad you enjoyed brunch, but very sorry for the confusion with the anniversary special! We mention it's available "every night this August" on our website, but apologize that led to confusion. We hope to see you and your girlfriends again for brunch or dinner some time!

    Service was slow despite only one other table seated outdoors (understanding there was a wedding reception plus seating indoors but the restaurant should have been prepared for that). We had to ask for water refills. Bread came out after our dinner (2nd course). Wine for dinner pre-ordered came out halfway thru the entree. We were hovered over and ask to cut into our steak immediately vs being revisited to see if things were ok. We got the anniversary special filet (carpetbagger) which was cooked perfectly (temperature) but was chewy and charred overly crisp. We also got the seafood special (Tower of Power) but the soft shell crab was extremely crunchy and inedible. Dessert came with our anniversary special meal but the waiter forgot and ask if we’d like to order (with a nightly special, understandable but with a month-long, seemed odd). And while I have no expectation of complimentary items when we book via OT and annotate that it’s a special occasion...it’s generally at least acknowledged with a statement of some kind since...we could go anywhere to celebrate but we chose Skopelos. I realized COVID has changed some things but...All in all, a very disappointing experience. We have enjoyed many fine dining experiences since moving to Pensacola from Kansas City which I generally highlight for fellow local foodies on Instagram but this...was a tremendous disappointment and I would not recommend.

    Skopelos at New WorldResponded on August 20, 2020Thank you very much for your honest feedback, Sherri. Yes, we absolutely offer a complimentary dessert for special celebrations! Our host should have alerted your server; in fact that was an issue recently brought to our attention and we've since made a staffing change. We appreciate all of your feedback and have passed it along to Chef Silivos. Thank you! I'm going to message you privately as well.

My daughter in law had the Grouper and it was done to perfection she had to take half her dinner home also. We will be regular s now!

    My husband and I enjoyed our delectable meal on the patio. We both enjoyed a Carpetbagger entree. Our steaks were cooked perfectly and the shrimp and crab cream sauce drizzled over the top was delicious. Our entrees were accompanied by savory mashed potatoes and sauteed vegetable medleys. We ended our meals with scrumptious desserts.

    My boyfriend and I decided to go on a date after realizing it had been almost a year since we treated ourselves to one. I wanted to eat somewhere outside with a nice atmosphere and we decided to give Skopelos a try as neither of us had ever been there. I’m a vegan, and I was extremely happy with all of the vegan options as well as how easy it was to to know right off what I could eat without having to search or ask questions. My boyfriend also really enjoyed his steak, and it was nice to eat somewhere where neither of us felt like we were giving up having good options for ourselves. We will definitely be coming back and I think we found our new special occasion spot.

    Skopelos at New WorldResponded on August 11, 2020Your kind words mean so much to us! First, we're thrilled you and your boyfriend were able to have a date night, but on top of that, we're honored you chose to spend it with us! It's also great to read you enjoyed both the vegan options as well as steak. We look forward to seeing you both again!
