Pleasantly surprised that thought there were a lot of people waiting, our reservation was honored and we were seated as soon as a table became available.

All 4 of our meals were delicious. The fish (whether porgy, branzino or swordfish) we’re all seasoned exactly as they should be to enhance the flavor but not overpower it

Will definitely go back

Stamna is always delicious and good service. They probably should not be on Open Table - each and every time we've made a reservation through Open Table - they seem confused and there has never been a table ready for us at the reservation time. It doesn't take long, but there's always a surprised look when we say we used open table.

No parking lot so we arrived at 7:05 for a 6:45 reservation as we searched for parking. The hostess was mean and had an attitude. Especially because I booked on open table. Tried to seat me right in front of the door and when I asked for another table, she told me no because I was late for my reservation We eventually got a table for 2 and it was very narrow and right in front of the kitchen. The food was wonderful. Very fresh. But the ambiance in the restaurant is not great. Hostess apologized at the end of the night and gave us a a free dessert which was yummy.

The food here very good (based on previous visit) but their reservation process is horrible and they shouldn’t be on OpenTable.

I made a reservation via OpenTable and when I got to the restaurant with my party we were told we didn’t have a table.

The reason being is because they don’t actually hold tables via OpenTable they just add you to the list with walk-ins.

That being said the hostess wouldn’t even give us an idea on how long our wait would be. So, we left the restaurant only to receive a call 25 minutes later that our table was ready and we should have been more patient.

Amazing experience - had a dinner with friends here: great place for a conversation (BYOB helps). We felt like we’re back at the Greek Isles. Food was authentic and delicious, service helpful and friendly. We loved the grilled fish and the sides it came with. Highly recommend this restaurant.

New location provides much needed space, but perhaps a slight loss of charm and ambiance. Still a nice night out.

Great as always. The place was packed on Saturday night. Had reservations but we arrived very early. They were able to accommodate us right away which was a pleasant surprise. Our table was a bit cramped but nothing that a bottle of wine and great food wasn't able to fix. Stamna is and will continue to be my go to Greek restaurant.

We recently ate at Stamna and my husband said it was one of the best meals he has ever had out. We shared the Stamna salad, KLEFTIKO and Moussaka. Everything was fresh and delicious. Service was excellent. We managed to finish everything, but didn't have room for dessert. Next time!

A friend and I came here for lunch. The staff here was warm and welcoming and they allowed us to catch up at a leisurely pace while enjoying some terrific food in an atmosphere that transported me back to my childhood.
We had the souzoukakia (Greek meatballs in tomato sauce over pilaf), garides (shrimp in tomato sauce) and for dessert we had baklava and galaktoboureko (egg custard in phyllo.) This food was close to what my yia yia used to make, with slight regional differences. For example, I could taste a hint of cinnamon in the souzoukakia and rosewater in the galaktoboureko...delicious!

Stamna makes one feel as though you are vacationing in Greece! The food is always good, with ample portions. The service on our many visits has always been very good as well . Prices are exceedingly affordable. We have enjoyed many times, lamb gyro sandwich, great chicken kabobs, spanakopita ,or, spinach pie, grilled calamari over Greek salad, all very good.

We ordered the seafood platter with lemon potatoes, it was delicious! We also ordered a tomato salad and fava bean dip which was great as well. Portions were plenty. We went on a Tuesday night so it was not crowded so service was pleasant and food came out quickly. Overall, I would recommend.

Me and my boyfriend live not to far from here and when driving by we always say were going to visit. Well Monday night was the night. We always go to Sultans in Clifton, and keep saying we need to find a Greek place close to home and than heavens for this place. For starters its soooo clean! From the walls to the floor to the restrooms. Just fresh as air when you walk in. We were greeted with a pleasant face and sat down immediately. The service was quick, the menu options deliciously tempting and from what we ordered was FANTASTIC! From the starters to dessert, everything was A+++ and would recommend them to anyone. Definitely going back!

Excellent fish though a bit expensive. To my taste, too much butter on everything; I'd like it a bit lighter. Still, the flavor was very good. Staff was very pleasant and attentive. A bit loud in terms of the music, and the hard surfaces in the room make it louder, especially when there are a lot of people talking. But this is a go-to place for Greek food, and I'd recommend it to anyone.

We love Stamna. It was our 3rd time there. A huge slice of spanakopita was very shareable, with lots of filling and not too much phyllo. Grilled fish and lemon potatoes were delicious. The moussaka was spiced very delicately and was outstanding! Tables are close together, but that allowed us to chat with our neighbors who shared the last cookies from their very generous plate of Greek butter cookies.
