Souvlaki GR Kouzina
Never a miss with these guys. Most visited restaurant in the city for us for service, cost, food, and atmosphere
Neighborhood restaurant with very good food
and service. Great Greek salad to start.
I loved the food, very tasty. When we arrived, the noise was too loud and it was very difficult having a conversation. Around 1.30 pm or so, there were only a few people, so it was much nicer. I recommend making a reservation.
It's really very Greek taverna! The food is good, well prepared and generous for reasonable prices. But you also have to tolerate exuberant levels of noise that may challenge your ability to enjoy your food, which is a shame if you go there primarily to eat, which, apparently most of their customers don't.
Tables are very small and very close.
The Greek salad is very generous (as are the portions of pita that accompany every dish!)
The grilled octopus was excellent and the various kalamakia are mostly very good (the bifteki, however, is so fat that it arrives 80% raw, which my wife could not eat and was a challenge even for me!)
Their baklava is outstanding, and the portions VERY generous! Worth stopping in just for this!
The service staff was great. Friendly, efficient and really helpful.
The noise levels are pretty overwhelming, and the small tables and tight quarters sometimes a challenge, but keeping those facts in mind, we have recommended it to friends because the food, the staff and the prices are so much better than too many nearby Manhattan Greek restaurants.
The waitors and waitress were rushing us I felt like. They gave us the check twice trying to get us out.
One of my favorite, low cost, good service restaurants in the city. Never disappoints.
Came in very late because I got mixed up with another Souvlaki restaurant but they were very gracious. I had the souvlaki, and my friend had the green salad. Food was delicious, great service, reasonable, diners were relaxed, nice ambiance. Will definitely come back.
This is a terrific little neighborhood restaurant. I would describe it as a very modest and casual Greek Taverna. The food is absolutely delicious and it's very reasonably priced. This was my first visit but I will definitely be back. I could have ordered half the menu everything looks and sounds so good. Highly recommend, and I would describe myself as a foodie and fairly picky.
I’ve been to Souvlaki GR several times for lunch or dinner. The food is consistently very good! We tried chicken and lamb burgers today and enjoyed them. The Souvlaki pita and Greek salad are always a good choice too. Our waitress was pleasant and helpful. Good experience overall!
Amazing food, great price, perfect atmosphere
I have been to this place many times, love their food and recommended it to several people. That’s why the last time was such a bummer. The Waiter pushed us hard to order “lamb loin special”. It was not fresh , over cooked , and served cold - clearly a blatant attempt to get rid of leftovers that sat around for too long. I will go back again because I liked their cooking on my previous visits a lot, but this time felt like a betrayal of a loyal customer
It is your Greek grandmas’ homemade cooking in a cute Greek setting. Not too expensive. The braised meatballs were delicious. So was the spinach and rice appetizer. It is downstairs a few steps from the street. I definitely will return.
Perfect atmosphere and great food.
Wait staff couldn't have been more accommodating. Would definitely recommend
Food was delicious - small, tight dining area but expected for NYC.
The Lamb chops were delicious . The service was great. Very accommodating,
Great food great service. I will go back again and again
The food was delicious, the server we had made it feel like a family restaurant. The service was great, just the right amount of attention. Price was incredible for what we had and for Midtown lunch. I am definitely going back!
Great food and price. Waitress could have been friendlier
Great food. We really felt like we were in Mykonos
Our second visit to the Midtown East location was as good as the first. My wife and I ordered horatiki, lamb skewers and moussaka. The food was delicious and the service was attentive.
It is very very good but quite pricy. Would go for special occasions only
There is so much to love about this restaurant. I felt like I was transported back to the Greek islands with the decor and music and little details like the salt, the artwork and of course the convincing authentic Greek accents of the staff.
The hero though is the food. It's SO good and having grown up with a mother that cooked beautifully, aunts that did the same, it's very hard to find an authentic Greek kitchen in a restaurant. Souvlaki GR Kouzina has that in spades.
This was our third visit in four weeks, and we'll be coming back.
Wonderful, cozy spot with authentic and delicious Greek food!
Nacho who waited on us, was amazing and the food is always hot and fresh!
We had the spicy feta dip and the greek salad that were
pretty good, but the spanakopita did not taste like
We’ve been to this Souvlaki GR several times since it opened and find the food consistently fresh and well-prepared. We especially enjoy the appetizers, salads and desserts! The waitstaff was attentive and reservations honored. We will be back!
Food was a little bland, but loved the atmosphere. Service was excellent.
Delicious and a good deal
Went there for the second time and was so disappointed this time. Everything we ordered was very sad. We had the mixed grill for 38.00 and it was zapped to warm it up and doused with oregano and oil. The spreads were ok but not as good as the last time. The restaurant was very quiet so I have to say if you go it has to be busy so the food is cooked to order and fresh.
Incredible service. We were seated immediately. The food was fresh and high quality. Excellent tomato/feta salad Enjoyed the choirino (pork) also. Friendly, attentive servers. Overall an excellent experience.
Chicken was basically raw and cold, was extremely disappointed and felt ill after
Delicious Greek food in a very beautiful and pleasant environment. Staff was simply amazing, excellent service!
Love this food! Great portions, prices, and it’s delicious.
Great food. great vibes. magical atmosphere. feels as if you are dinning in Santorini
Lovely, small, quaint place. Not a scene. Good place to catch up with a friend and be able to hear.
The Greek food here was very good. Plan to return as it was good value and quality, also service was attentive and friendly. Enjoyable dining experience!
This place is amazing. Fantastic food, charming and hospitable service and it feels just like an outdoor taverna on a Greek island. Not to mention for mid-town Manhattan, the cost is quite reasonable. Special mention for the lamb chops, the octopus and the loukoumades. Try it - you won’t be disappointed.
I’ve been here many times and it’s always great. The service is quick. The food is great. The spicy feta is to die for.
Really great service and excellent local Greek food restaurant
