This was our second visit in 2 weeks. I think this is our new favorite place. It was very easy to make a reservation on Open Table. We were a little early and they seated us immediately. The servers were friendly and accommodating. The food was excellent and reasonable. We were with friends and everyone had something different and we were all pleased. My husband had the stuffed peppers both times and loved them. I had the mousaka and our friends had spanakopita. We had enough to bring home for another meal. We will definitely go back.

This place is absolutely amazing! We are super critical of Greek/Mediterranean restaurants and we love this one. This was our second time back, experiencing great service, amazing food and a staff that makes you feel welcome and comfortable. I hope they can maintain the high bar they have set for themselves.

A disappointing meal that began with promise.
Slow service. There was one waiter in our section with 7 tables all seated at the same time.
The portions were huge but nothing was cooked fresh. Big menu with poor quality dishes. Not worth a second chance.

We were seated within 10 minutes of our reservation. The restaurant was full and quite loud, which we didn’t mind. Our server was very friendly and the food was delicious. My only complaint is that my mother and I ordered the same entree of grilled baby squid. My mother’s dish had perfectly grilled squid on the larger side. My dish had much smaller squid, and a lot of tentacles. As if I was given the leftovers. The prices are good and the food is fresh.

This was our third time here, however it will most likely be our last. Though I am a fan of the food, I am NOT a fan of the fact that every time we arrive, there is NO front of house. Ever. We get there, other people get there and stand behind us, and there is not a manager or host to be found. Crickets. Sometimes you will wait 5 minutes, others, 10. My father in law had to walk into the dining room and wave someone down. Sad. How can you give someone this as the first experience upon entering your establishment? It's an easy fix, yet one they have not yet made. On to the food. Most of it was well liked, like my lemon shrimp and scallops and my MIL's shrimp in a tomato sauce, but there were some blips. Soup was served at lukewarm temperature, and then my sons steak came out RARE when he ordered medium, Even the waitress agreed and offered to bring it back. My mom's lemon chicken was just not lemony at all. They did take these off the bill, however, inconsistency will not keep you in business.

This place was really cute, kind of like a Greek taverns. The staff was very welcoming and attentive. They have a large menu and it’s hard to decide. We had the gyro platter ( Enormous) and the Grilled Calamari with lemon potatoes. Both delicious but a little on the salty side for my tastes Tzatziki was delicious. For dessert we shared the galaktoboureko and it was awesome. The portions are really gigantic. Our check was $40! Amazing. Check it out.

Great food and service from Feta Saganaki App to our entrées - Shrimp Santorini, Spanakopita & Salad. Delicious Kadaifi for dessert. Very large portions...wrapped up most of it to take home. The leftovers make an awesome lunch the next day. We’ll be back.

The Greek Spot is above and beyond what you would expect from a Greek restaurant. Very special dishes and specials done expertly with very generous portions. Liquor store directly across the street which is convenient for this byo. Nicely appointed, service very attentive, ... 2nd time and we will be back many more times.

The staff is s friendly and accommodating. Our party was 7 women. We were seated at a round table which is perfect for conversation. I have sent other friends here and they are hooked! The food is so good and prepared fresh. The portions are generous. I was happy to have leftovers for the next day. Will he back.

We arrived at the restaurant at 7:20 and checked in with the hostess and we were told she didn’t have our reservation. I assured her I had booked through Open Table. She said there was no room. The restaurant was crowded but we were looking forward to dining there. She never said I’m sorry we couldn’t accommodate you, or I’m sorry for the confusion; her response to us bordered on rude. Something needs to be fixed with their internal systems.

I’ve been here several times. The service and food is always excellent. This time I brought my husband who was also pleasantly surprised. We chatted to a near by customer who loves to go to Greece and said this food is quite delicious and very authentic.

I would love to give more stars, however our service was non-existent. Our server never came over to greet us, just literally popped by and took our order in between running around frantically from tables to the kitchen. I literally think we only spoke with him to place our orders and then had to wave him down to request our check. Oh, and the bread he had promised us came out exactly when we go our appetizer, only after reminding a bus boy. On the positive side, the food WAS outstanding, and portions were very generous. Lastly, kudos to the one-woman show who literally does seating, opens wine, clears tables, etc. If it weren't for her, the place would fall apart. They need more staff in order for me to improve the rating, but I would come back as the food was just that good.

Excellent restaurant! We really enjoyed the food and the servers are so nice! Been twice in the last month and everything was so tasty and fresh! My only reason for one less star is they RUSH you out to get the next table in. If they ease up on that more, I’d be there all the time!

Been here a number of times. The service is always accommodating and pleasant. Food does not fail to impress. The value is there. Would rather spend the same amount of money here than at some “name” restaurants for a much lesser meal but fancier digs.
Only complaint is second time we had the same hostess perhaps some customer service training would help. She may be new or family so we won’t count it against them, but rudeness is really unnecessary and is counterproductive in this business.

We have frequented this restaurant since it’s opening. It is good to see it growing in popularity and that is a result of their great service quality and well prepared food. Was there just this passed weekend and quite impressed on how busy they were. As usual the service was professional the food was excellent and the noise was deafening but at least a sign that people were enjoying. Hate to say nice things about this business because I’m sure they will only get busier. They earned their success.

What a cute place! I was pleasantly surprised at how well this place is run despite being a new restaurant. The wait and bus staff have clearly been very well trained, the manager came by to check on our table, the food was delivered in a timely manner and was fresh and absolutely delicious. I really hope The Greek Spot is here to stay because this is a new go-to for our family in Red Bank.

Restaurant was very warm and uncomfortable.
Appetizers were very good. My husband had the lamb chops and I had the steak. Meat was excellent quality but the food was extremely salty. I will ask for food to be prepared without added salt next time.

I love this place. My husband is from Greece and it’s hard to find authentic Greek food and with an extensive menu down the shore. This place offers an extensive menu, great food and great service.
